“Old-Style Motel Delivers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

I picked The Old Santa Fe Inn out of the AAA Tourbook. It was in our price-range and close to the capitol and plaza. The style of the motel is a throwback to the "u" shaped configuration with parking in front of each room. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The rooms were southwestern with nice little touches like bottled water and chocolates. The decor was subtle southwestern, very tasteful and clean. The hot buffet breakfast the next morning was the best I've ever had. The burritos were authentic and the breads were fresh-baked.
I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Any room is good.

After reading all the reviews I chose Old Santa Fe Inn to stay at for our visit. We were warmly welcomed, given information about the hotel and its amenities, and the hours for breakfast. The front desk attendant was very friendly, and patiently answered all our questions. The room, (room 5 upstairs ), was very nice. It is not huge, but I loved the kiva fireplace, the letter waiting that welcomed me by name, and the chocolates! We easily walked to restaurants, and attractions. Parking is right by the rooms, but not on a street. We are so glad we chose this hotel. Looking forward to breakfast tomorrow!

My husband and I travel to Santa Fe once or twice a year. Since we discovered the Old Santa Fe Inn several years ago, we have stayed nowhere else. We have probably been there six times now. The rooms are clean and updated, the people are friendly and professional and the included daily breakfast is very good. We love that we can park our car near our room for easy access to our things, yet walk to the Plaza, galleries and restaurants. Highly recommend!

Had a great three night stay here. The cookies and coffee at 4p.m were a thoughtful gesture. The cookies were delicious, by the way. Also, the personal letter hoping we had a pleasant stay and the chocolates awaiting us in our room were unexpected but appreciated. Danny at the desk greeted us with a beaming smile when we checked in and gave us three excellent recommendation for places to eat. (Cowgirls, the shed and somewhere else excellent who's name I forget.) The rooms were warm, the beds were very comfortable. This hotel reflected the charm of old Santa Fe itself and was an utter delight. Stay here, it's close to the plaza, quiet, cozy and they really seem to want you to enjoy your stay. The breakfast, too, was excellent. If we ever return to Santa Fe we wouldn't even look for an alternative.

We stayed at the inn for three nights this week and found it extremely comfortable, with friendly staff, and just a couple of easy blocks from Old Town and the Plaza. Our room - a queen junior suite with kiva fireplace-- was spacious and cozy, and we felt right at home. The breakfast bar was a cut above most hotels at this price point (the waffle iron took way too long however) and started our days off just right. We will definitely stay here on our next visit to Santa Fe

I went to Santa Fé for a week to visit the museums and other attractions and escape to a place of beauty from the cold of our Maritime winter. I was delighted with the Old Santa Fé Inn. The people were helpful and friendly. I enjoyed the décor and ambiance of the dining area and library and my room was well decorated and clean. I appreciated the bottles of water in my room and the cookies and tea in the late afternoon. A lovely touch to my room, for example, was a print of Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe by W. Clark, a renowned New Mexican artist and you can see some of his prints in the dining area as well. I enjoyed the breakfast offerings. A great thing about this Inn is that I walked everywhere I wanted to go (it is close to downtown). I only took one bus to get to the museums of Museum Inn. I would definitely stay there again without any concern.

We stayed here two different nights on a recent trip to NM. While the rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is average and the price is moderate, the people working there made it special. Every person we met tried to make our stay as pleasant as possible.
