“No ordinary Econolodge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Every year we spent three to four weeks traveling the US on our motorcycle. We usually book through Choice hotels the night prior to our stay. This Econolodge is by far the best one of the chain. Big rooms, nice pool and a nice glass of ice cold water at the reception to greet us. Friendly staff and overall cleanliness of the hotel will make us go back for sure on our future trips.
A very hard deal to beat at this price...

Your average 2 star corporate hotel. Nice and quiet. Decent breakfast of cereal, bananas, baked goods, toast, juice and waffles. Not a bad spread for the price. Comfortable beds and attentive staff. Having a fridge in the room is a big bonus too. No complaints.

I booked this hotel based on other TripAdvisor reviews, and I was not disappointed. The room was nice and clean, the mattresses nice and firm, and the pool was clean and just at the right temperature. The hotel had all the little things one might need on a trip; blowdryer in the room, ice machine, vending machine, and microwave in the lobby, and excellent service. The gentleman who checked us in asked for a room preference, and the lady who worked in the morning got me an ironing board and iron right away when I asked for it, and she made sure the breakfast items were well stocked. The free breakfast included tea, coffee, milk, orange juice, cereals, oatmeal, waffles, toast, muffins, and bananas - very good. The location is excellent; Cerillos Road has all the major chain stores (Walgreens, Denny's, etc.), so if you forgot something, you can obtain it easily. I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: No elevator, so if you have heavy luggage, you might want to get a room on the first floor. If you...

It's pretty clear that the management of this Econo Lodge cares about their hotel. Mix some recent renovations into the overall cleanliness and pleasant atmosphere and you have a great hotel that makes for a wonderful stay in Santa Fe.

The other reviews for this location are so good and well stated, that I won't repeat what fellow reviewers have written. It is a lovely place to stay and easily found on one of Santa Fe's main roads.

Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from Cerrillos Road. It's not terribly noisy, but the farther away the bett...

We have stayed here 2 years in a row. Nice, clean and good sized rooms. The only drawback this time around was that they were working on the pool area so we were not able to use it. That's okay because there are so many things to do in Santa Fe that we weren't at the hotel much. Good and friendly front desk service....thank you.

This was the first time at this motel. The room is OK, clean, small bathroom. The $60 price is fair for one night. The staff was polite and helpful. It might be better to pay a little more if you plan to stay longer. Many good restaurants in this city and it's a fun place to visit. Don't know why these reviews have to be 200 characters

We've enjoyed our three night stay at this hotel with its very comfortable bed, thoughtful staff and general manager to make our stay a very pleasant one. It is also a good hotel to base yourself when visiting Santa Fe because it is surrounded by neighboring good restaurants such as the Blue Corn Cafe microbrewery and others. The hotel is very clean throughout and the rooms are well maintained by the staff. Complimentary breakfast is included and the location is ideal for exploring Santa Fe at a very reasonable rate which is rare to find these days! We thank the general manager and staff for a warm welcome and will come to stay again when we visit Santa Fe. We recommend booking at Econo Lodge for a pleasant time in Santa Fe.
