This is a quirky alternative to the upscale B&B scene in downtown Santa Fe. It might strike you as a little bit odd at first, has a strange layout with the rooms sort of centered around a central lounge/checkin area. To me the whole place had a bit of a party vibe, especially the outdoor lounge area which felt like a year round burning man camp (but mellower!).
The owners are definitely disorganized - I had some chaos upon check in - but I booked through priceline and didn't encounter of these fees or taxes that others are complaining about.
My biggest issue with the place was my room (room 10) had no window and was pretty dark. I think it was meant to be an entryway and they'd turned it into a room. It was so dark that it made it really hard to wake up in the morning. I didn't like the implication that they'd turn what was obviously meant to be an entryway into a kind of sub-par room to make a few more bucks. The room was nice, though, and very clean, and bed was very comfy, and it had the added bonus of opening right onto the backyard lounge area.
Best things about this place: Location, cute outdoor lounge area, funky scene with the ability to possibly meet people (I ended up going out dancing with randoms I met in the lobby), amenities (fridge in room, kitchen and laundry if you need it).
Potentially bad things: Disorganized check in process can give a weird initial impression of the place. Some rooms have bad qualities.
Would NOT recommend this place to older travelers, or people who are expecting Service with a capital S. That said, it turned out to be a pretty cool place in a super great location, but it took a little flexibility to come to that conclusion!
