“Surprisingly Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Would have never stopped at an econo lodge but for the reviews on Tripadvisor were so good we did. And wow what a great bargain. We will be using them again in the future. Very nice front desk, very nice and clean room. The breakfast was not that good but hey for the price very well done.

Room Tip: I thank they are all ok but we like 2nd foor so car lights dont get into the room.

My work has me traveling to Santa Fe several times a year. I've stayed at over a dozen hotels there. For convenience, comfort and value, this Econo Lodge can't be beat! The staff is always pleasant and very helpful. I especially enjoy the spacious rooms and quiet environment.

For a so-called 'budget' motel, this place was surprisingly good. Clean and comfortable, with helpful service and a full breakfast. It is on a very busy highwa,y but we were at the rear and did not hear any traffic noise. Guests near the road might hear some. It is about 4 miles or so from downtown; however, there are several shopping areas,with restaurants, within walking distance. The only reason I did not rate it excellent is because on two occasions the chambermaids did not replace all the towels and washclothes fully and we had to request them at the desk. Minor stuff.

Dear Don C: Thank you for your detailed, wonderful review. We are glad you found us to be a good deal, especially amid the high season in Santa Fe. We strive to provide the best value- as you found out. Though we are a budget category motel- it doesn't seem like that as you rightfully pointed out. Sorry about the towel snafu...we will be careful about it and have briefed maids about it. Hope you had a safe trip back to Massachusetts (thank you spell check :)) and we hope to see you soon! Take care- GM

Clean, spacious rooms, and excellent service. We were very happy with our stay and next time we will stay longer to see more of Santa Fe. I can see why this place has so many good ratings. There are many stores in the area which proved helpful when we needed something.

The rooms were clean, spacious, and plenty of workspace, the king size bed was quite comfortable. Breakfast was very good and available until 9:30 in the morning The manager is probably the most gracious and attentive motel manager that we've ever met. He was almost always available, And very helpful with information about things to do in Santa Fe. We stayed there in May 2013 and were so happy with our stay, We quickly made reservations to stay there during Indian market. I have stated that several motels in Santa Fe, Some of the much more expensive, And this one beats them all. It will be our first choice whenever we return the Santa Fe.

Room Tip: We have stated in different rooms, and they all have been quite nice.

The handicapped accessible room 111 was terrific in every way. The room was large enough to maneuver in a wheelchair. The king size bed was very comfortable. The DircTV service included HBO and Cinemax. The room had a refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom had a roll-in shower with hand-held shower attachment in easy reach of the provided shower chair and nice towels. A TTY phone and lighted door "bell" were standard parts of the room. The lobby and grounds were easily accessible. The staff was friendly and helpful. The Santa Fe-style decor was pleasing. Everything was very clean.
We were so pleased with the accommodations, we extended our stay. I will not hesitate to stay again at the Econo lodge Inn & Suites whenever I am in Santa Fe.

Room Tip: Be very specific when asking for a handicapped accessible room.
