“A Favorite Place of Mine!!! Stay There!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

I am a return visitor to this Econo Lodge and will continue to be as often as I can return to Santa Fe. I had a problem with my original reservation and Tapas, manager, went out of his way to fix MY mistake, something he did not have to do. I kept extending my stay and ended up making a total of three different reservations since I just didn't want to leave! Truly grateful they allowed me to stay in the same room for my five night stay! I've stayed in more expensive hotels that did not do room service every single day of an extended stay...not true here. Room was cleaned, towels replenished and everything neat and tidy when I would return. This is one of the most consistently clean facilities Choice Hotels has in their chain, fresh smelling and always clean. I really enjoyed the free breakfast all but one morning when I went out. It is not as expansive as some buffets but has things most people are going to have at home for breakfast (cereal, waffles, rolls, toast makings, juice, always 24 hr coffee, milk and fruit)...again, always fresh and plentiful. I was fortunate to have a king suite which is so big and nice...comfy bed, good linens, great TV and good free Wi-Fi connection, good heat system. Although I was on the end of the motel closest to Cerilllos the street noise was not a problem for me. I periodically heard someone walking up above me but that wasn't a problem for me either (I live in a downstairs apartment-made me feel at home!) Due to a hip replacement I am unable to climb the stairs and have always asked for and gotten a down stairs room. Once I had the handicapped room with the walk in shower but prefer a regular room...and absolutely love the big shower head and plenty of hot water! I have found the location is convenient for everything in Santa Fe...just a few minute drive to The Plaza and all the other attractions. I am a senior, single traveler and certainly appreciate inside corridors and the fact the doors are locked not long after dark...the well lit parking lot is also a plus. SO in MY book Amisha and Tapas, the owners/managers, are the best and I wish them continued success in offering travelers a great haven when traveling.

During a recent two-week road trip, taking in new Mexico and Louisiana and 10 different hotels, our stay at Econolodge Santa Fe was easily amongst the best. Manager Tapas provided a fantastic service, including good recommendations about local bars within walking distance. 24 hour coffee service was a plus and the breakfast provided was more than adequate. The hotel itself was clean, comfortable, well-priced and with a good location. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to other travellers.

This place was wonderful to stay at - it exceeds your expectations. It was easy to check in and out. The room was really clean. It smelled nice - not like a lot of hotels like these. One plus (I thought) was that your door is not accessible from the outside directly.
This hotel is located in a great place - easy to get to the highway and to downtown Santa Fe.
They offer free breakfast with tons of options.
They do offer shampoo and soup - but not conditioner.
There is a hair dryer in the room, but a very very little one.
Lots of TV channels, a really big bed, and lots of space in our room!!
Definitely would stay here again if we visited Santa Fe.

When we stayed at the Econo Lodge in Santa Fe, we got a very large room with a table, closet, and king-size bed. The mini-fridge and microwave were bonuses at this budget hotel. It also had an outdoor pool and hot tub, but it was already too cold in October to use them. The hotel has a recycling bin in the room, which is great. Breakfast was basic but serviceable. There is no elevator here, so if you can't carry luggage to second floor, ask for a ground-floor room. The desk staff were not especially friendly, but they were efficient. We had no problems at all with our reservation. All around pleasant stay!

Hotel was booked full during Albuquerque balloon week but I had reserved weeks earlier. Arrived late and left early so only spent time in the room. Friendly, helpful clerk. Clean room. Breakfast seemed a little limited but ok. Facility seemed to be in good state overall. Good rate for high-tourist period.

Room Tip: Ask for a north room (away from main road).
