“Pilot Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Two private pilots landed at Santa Fe Airport (KSAF) at 11:00 p.m. after a long day of flying with some delays due to weather and minor issues with the plane (joys of being a private pilot)! Called the Holiday Inn Express for room availability! They offered a ride but we had already made arrangements with a cab. Front desk service was great and the room rate was very reasonable! We were given a room with two queen beds well away from any noise. The mattresses were nealry new and provided a restful night. Up at 6:00 a.m. to finish the last leg of our Vegas to Colorado trip. After breakfast, the General Manager (Alejandra) provided us transportation to the airport. The staff was excellent when they didn't have to be! I certainly would recommend staying here. In fact, when flying south to avoid high mountain passes and bad weather, KSAF and the Holiday Inn Express is now a destination, not just a waypoint!

The staff namely Maggie, Amber, Chris, Ale were excellent. They were super helpful and so pleasant. It was a pleasure being there and made our stay more pleasant. The place was clean, the breakfast was nice and it was always being replenished. Location was perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend this place. Thanks Chris for your warm and friendly greeting. We needed that after traveling for six hours to get there.

Thank you Chris, we had the best meal of our whole trip on his recommendation., They are presently remodeling, so it will be even more up to date. Location was good, breakfasts at least had some choices for gluten free!

Room Tip: We enjoyed a back room not facing the street where there is more traffic noise.

Was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Great location, comfy bed, very quiet room. As with all Holiday Inn Express breakfasts, it was nice as well. The gentleman at reception gave me a great recommendation for dinner (Blue Corn Brewery), which was very appreciated. Will stay here again.

We came to Santa Fe to visit friends. Location was convenient. Service and attention by staff was excellent. Chris, evening reception was wonderful! He always remember us when we went out and made sure to ask us about our evening when we returned; even saved us cookies one night. Rooms clean and breakfast good.

I coach a high school basketball team that played in a tournament at a local Santa Fe high school in Dec 2013. When the team arrived, we were greeted by Ale and her staff along with a big "welcome and good luck in the tournament" sign in the lobby. Our team stayed 3 days and it could not have been better! The hospitality was so welcoming and made us feel relaxed and at home. Breakfast was perfect. My players loved it, and every breakfast Ale and her staff would always check on us to see if there was anything we needed. Following our basketball games and returning to the Ale always asked how the game went, and congratulated my players. Our rooms were clean and perfect. The housekeepers do a wonderful job. I have been coaching high school basketball for 18 years, and attended many out of town tournaments, and this was by far the best place I have ever stayed.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody. I plan on taking my family to Santa Fe, and this is where we will stay!
