“Great Motel Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

We have stayed in this Motel twice now while in Santa Fe. Both times we were more than pleased with both the accomodations and the service. The rooms are freshly remodled and very clean. The lobby is attractive and served as a marvelous "gathering area" for our group both in the morning as we enjoyed the free breakfast, or in the evening after a day at the capital.
The Staff was just marvelous. Every effort was made by management to make sure our stay was comfortable and productive. This is the only place we will stay in Santa Fe from Now on.

Room Tip: Try the suites real value in an already good hotel

This is a clean, comfortable and very reasonably priced hotel--especially for Santa Fe. If you're in town for one night or on a budget (and who isn't) it's a good choice. For it's location on Cerillos Road it is fairly quiet. The TV is a nice big flat screen with Direct TV and an easily understood remote. Inside hallways offer enhanced security and privacy. The place looks good! The paint is fresh, the carpet and BED linens are new, and the bathroom is spotless.
A few caveats:
The sink is SMALL with literally no counter space. There are no hooks for robes or shower kits in the bathroom/sink area. Now this is a big one, they have NO luggage carts available! None. With inside entrances that is simply unacceptable. In all fairness, we were offered help with our luggage. After some discussion with the very accommodating 90 lb young woman at the desk who had offered her help, we all decided that a room closer to an exit was the best overall choice. We were fortunate that a room was available. Keep this in mind if you stay here. The continental breakfast was sparse even by budget hotel standards. Plan on breakfast at the Plaza Cafe South that is just down the road unless you're OK with a mostly carbohydrate morning meal.
This budget hotel would have gotten 4 points except for the luggage cart and morning meal issues. These are things that just seem like no-brainers. For budget hotels in Santa Fe, a few dollars more gets you bigger bang for the buck

Stayed here last summer (end of June) and forgot to post a review (15 hotels in fifteen nights (sorry). Looking through our trip I came across some pictures of this hotel.

Checking was quick, efficient and great explanation of the facilities and surrounding area. We arrived a couple of hours early and was given our room with no issues. Went straight out to the pool which is spotlessly clean (just like the rest of the hotel) which also had a spa/ jacuzzi pool.

The rooms for the three of us were ample for our needs and the facilities were what was expected for a hotel of this standard. The beds were comfortable, bathroom was again spotless. What wasn't expected was the TV and the range of channels offered (the best on the whole trip).

Location wise it is still a bit of a drive to down town Santa Fe, but we knew this before booking. there are excellent facilities around the hotel including a great cinema.

My work takes me to many places as well as hotels. Driving from Indiana "two day ride" arriving in the evening First time in Santa Fe
I spent an hour or so looking at hotels and rooms along the strip. Any more I don't just take the first room I see I always look at the rooms they have and look for the best value based on cleanliness,television and channels,sense of security , convenience, high speed internet and price. after looking at 10 hotels Rodeway Inn was clearly the best value. After my initial stay now when i come to Santa Fe I make my reservations ahead of time to make sure I get a room as I noticed they fill the parking lot. Recently they have changed there to Econo lodge but the same helpful staff haven't changed. "I Can't Stand To Watch TV on A Old Fashioned Tv I Have A 42" In my Garage"

I stayed in Oct 2012 when it was called Rodeway inn, and am writing this 3 months later in Jan 2013 when it is now apparently Econo lodge, so hopefully this is still relevant.
After staying in expensive downtown Santa Fe I zipped out to get a cheaper place. I found this hotel to be well run and clean. Room was well kept and everything worked. Heard some street traffic noise but nothing excessive. Friendly staff.
Had a decent complementary breakfast. Has a pool
I tend to get in late after sight seeing and go right to bed, so a no frills well kept economical place like this suits me fine.

I'm an independent consultant working a contract in Santa Fe. Controlling expense costs is important to my bottomline. Yet I want a clean, quiet, and comfortable place to stay when I'm away from home. This is a challenge to do in Santa Fe. But this hotel readily meets those requirments and is an excellent value.

This place is small and simpke but the rooms are cozy and more comfortable than some really expensive places I've stayed in in the past. The walls are thick and we didn't hear our neighbors at all. The beds were comfy and we slept very well. The place was clean and the service friendly. We'll definitely be staying hete again!
