“Perfect and value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

For $60 this place is fantastic, a huge king size bed, clean and spacious. There's a good 37" TV with loads of channels. A fridge, microwave and ironing board and free wifi. What more could you want? There's also a lovely Italian restaurant called the Olive Garden across the road. I would recommend staying here to anyone.

Dear mightyquin69: Thank you for your wonderful five star review! We are thrilled to be called "Perfect"!
As you noticed, we thrive to provide the best possible value to our valued guests and are happy to know that we succeeded. As you already experienced, we are within a walking distance to numerous restaurants- both local favorites and some national brands such as the Buffalo Wild Wings, Panera Bread, Starbucks, Olive Garden; and various shopping options and movie theaters. Our guests value the newly renovated rooms, numerous HD channels on flat screen tv, and our location- a short driving distance from historic downtown at about 1/3rd of the price one would pay in downtown. Thank you for the business and we hope to see you again sometime soon! Wish you happy and safe travels! Regards- GM

Clean and friendly, well-priced and convenient. Staff was pleasant and polite. If you need help or directions, just ask Tapas at the desk. He's terrific! The inn is away from downtown, but the distance isn't too bad.

Dear Wonsco: Thank you for "highly recommending" us to the TripAdvisor community; that is the best compliment that we can wish for! You said it all in a short and sweet review- the sum of it is what we strive for- providing the best value to our guests. As you pointed out, we are a short driving distance from the historic downtown, and we may add that at perhaps 1/3rd of the price you would pay there! Thank you for the opportunity to serve you and we look forward to host you, hopefully soon! Wish you happy and safe travels! Regards- GM

I agree with most of the previous reviewers (which is why we chose this hotel over others at the same price) - this was very nice considering how reasonably priced as it was. Close enough to the plaza, nice room - DIRECTV (always a plus in my book) - marginal continental breakfast (we skipped). Pool looked nice but we were too busy drinking beer to go check it out.

We just completed a five day stay while visiting family in Santa Fe. We are very familiar with many of the closer in, much more expensive options for lodging. Due to a longer stay, we looked for a place that was more reasonable in price. We were delighted with the Econo Lodge. The owners and staff were wonderfully pleasant and helpful; the room was large, comfortable, and incredibly clean. The daily cleaning of the room was fastidious. We stayed in a room away from the highway and there was NO noise, sleep was totally undisturbed. The pool and hot tub (which we didn't use) looked very inviting and again absolutely clean. The grounds were well maintained and quite pretty with lovingly cared for plantings.
The hotel is about 15 minutes from the Plaza, but we never had a problem with parking in the area.
We would highly recommend this accommodation.

We enjoyed our two-night stay here and particularly liked the room setup. The sink/mirror is located outside the shower/bath/commode area, allowing two people to get ready nearly simultaneously. We had a King-Sized suite which provided great value for the money, especially in the Santa Fe area. We also had a refrigerator, microwave, a large TV, and free Wifi which worked great! We particularly liked the fact that there was a recycling container in the room. We inadvertently left our Do Not Disturb sign out when we left for the day, but the owners graciously provided us with new towels, coffee, toiletries etc.
The continental breakfast was a little sparse and some effort should be made to ensure that there is adequate food for all the guests.

Dear Sylvie003: Thank you so much for your detailed review, we really appreciate you for taking time to write about little things which attributes greatly to an overall experience. We are glad that you enjoyed the room set up and amenities so much so that you found your stay to be of a "great value"! Folks forget to take out the "do not disturb" sign frequently, and as you experienced, we are always glad to replenish any supply at your request. We generally have very good comments about replenishing the breakfast as well, and apologize if there was a bit slippage in that when you were with us. We will reiterate on that aspect of the service training to our hard working staff. We value your comments, appreciate your business and are looking forward to your visit again, hopefully soon! Wish you happy and safe travels! Regards- GM

We were pleasantly surprised to find this value 2-day stay in pricey Santa Fe. The on-site owner was very helpful and friendly. The room was a bit dated with a small bath and sink area, but clean and quiet. We were on the back second floor looking out onto a church parking lot, so there was little activity. We had two very good night's rest. The wi-fi had a very good connection. Breakfast was typical for this class of lodging, but near to Starbuck's.

Just like you, our valued guests seem to appreciate not only the close proximity to the Starbucks, but also the brand new Panera Bread, Buffalo Wild Wings, Olive Garden and many other local favorites all within walking distance- in addition to shopping options and movie theaters. Thank you for your business and we hope to see you again sometime soon! Wish you safe travels! Regards- GM
