“Santa Fe Pet Friendly B&B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2008

We spent three nights at the El Paradero with our two Border Collies and had a great time. Room 3 is one of the pet friendly rooms that is right in the courtyard. A few minor things I will mention; the pillows just suck, they are about as comfortable as sleeping on a pancake and the bathroom in room 3 is very tiny. It only had a shower, which was fine but if you drop your soap be prepared to get out of the shower to get it as there is zero room to bend over unless you are 2 feet tall. I personally didnt think the staff was friendly, they were not rude or anything negative, they just seemed to be in a hurry but with that said the room was always cleaned and breakfast was good. The B&B seemed very clean and the common areas were always clean and stocked with treats. The courtyard was a very secure area to let the dogs out in the middle of the night...good thing since it snowed every night we were there! Overall I was very pleased and I would return to this B&B. One last thing I will mention, if you dont know Santa Fe...the town closes up at 6pm..even though it was the next to last weekend before Christmas many stores closed at 5pm on Sunday, I found that odd and frustrating!

We headed to Santa Fe after our planned trip to Cuba fell through. Our holiday in Santa Fe generally, and at El Paradero in particular didn't disappoint. We stayed in the Pino Suite, and enjoyed it tremendously. Service was exceptional, breakfasts were spectacular, the location (within walking distance from the centre of town) suited our wish to park the car as often as possible.

We hope to be back as soon as our schedule allows.

The room was very nice, small but comfortable. The fireplace was charming and warm. Breakfast was really a treat. The fruit was fresh and all you could eat, along with homemade granola and fresh coffee. In addition Pecan Pancakes were served hot off the grill and were incredibly good. I have never eaten as well at a bed and breakfast. Last but not least, the common areas were very inviting and warm.

This was our second visit and we loved our stay as much as the first visit. The best part is that you can walk to anything in town and leave the car parked. The Kiva fireplace was really a cozy addition to our room and the price is quite reasonable for a B & B in Santa Fe.

We stayed in the suite, and it was very nice. The room was cozy, the fireplace was a nice touch, and, while we didn't use it much, the kitchenette was handy. However, when we looked at the bed we found that the comforter was covered with dog hair! This of course seemed odd to us, until the next morning at breakfast we noticed that there is a large black dog on the premises. We don't have a problem with animals per se, but this just begged so many questions.
Other than that, everything was good, especially the breakfast, although the breakfast room is small and there was a group of other people that hogged two tables while others had to wait just to sit.

First time visit to Santa Fe, read the reviews of El Paradero on Tripadvisor.com and booked easily through the hotel's website. Rates were higher than I usually spend but seemed very reasonable for Santa Fe area. A friend and I stayed in room 11. No fireplace, but quiet - away from the hubbub of the main floor. Also it was more like two rooms, one with a queen bed - great bedding - and an adjoining with a twin day bed. Closeable door between the two. Room would also work well for a couple traveling with a teen.

Breakfast was in 30 min shifts: local granola, fruit, and a hot entree. Your stay also includes afternoon tee with pastries. The time for tea had changed to 3:30 and although we were informed of this at check-in, some other guests weren't and were miffed about missing it without an apology from staff.

Close to plaza area so we parked our car in their lot, walked the plaza all day, came back for afternoon tea, and set out again in the late afternoon for more exploring.
Would definitely stay here again if I'm ever in Santa Fe.

El Paradero is within such easy walking distance to the Plaza, downtown and Canyon Rd galleries, we didn't start the rental car until we were leaving for the airport. Charming, comfortable inn. Fabulous food! The smells from the kitchen just waft about the place. "high tea" from 3:30-4:30 is really just an excuse to taste the latest creations. Fresh baked goodies at night. Sue, Paul and the kitchen staff really enjoy their cooking. Our room was very comfortable, clean and well appointed. This is not a stuffy inn where you're uncomfortable talking in normal volume or tiptoeing around. Rather, it's like visiting friends for a holiday. Fireplaces in the dining and living rooms; very romantic. Outside courtyards looked equally appealing (just when above 27 degrees!). This was our first stay, but we're going to make it a tradition.
