“Santa Fe Charm and Hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2006

I have traveled to Santa Fe almost every summer for the past 7 years, and started staying at the El Paradero at the recommendation of friends. Now I can't think of staying anywhere else. Matt and Jennifer and the whole El Paradero staff are so gracious and helpful, the atmosphere so relaxed and welcoming, the location so accommodating, and the breakfasts and afternoon teas so fabulous, that I feel sorry for those people who don't know about this place. The El Paradero captures the charm of Santa Fe and contributes mightily to my desire to return year after year. Of course, by sharing this good review, I realize we will just have to book that much earlier for next year!

  • Liked — the friendliness of the owners and staff
  • Disliked — liked everything about it
  • Tips/Secrets — We like the room with the private bath across the hall because you then have two sinks, one in the room and one in the bathroom. We never ran into anyone in the hallway when we scooted across to use our bathroom. Very private and secure.

El Paradero B & B Inn is a wonderful place to stay at a reasonable price. Within easy walking distance of the Plaza, El Paradero has strong points noted by other reviewers: friendly and helpful staff, comfortable and unique rooms, on-site parking, no TV in rooms (a real plus---and if you have to have it, you may go to the living room in the main building), and best of all, a real breakfast and afternoon treats that on a busy day may become dinner. On this trip I stayed at one B & B which served all guests breakfast at one time and also at El Paradero. El Paradero won the direct comparison with no competition! With a morning paper, coffee or tea, fruit, and sometimes baked goods available early, one can start the morning in a leisurely fashion OR eat quickly and begin the day early. The breakfast entrees were amazing: French toast and turkey sausage, lighter-than-air pancakes, a breakfast quiche--all absolutely delicious. Afternoon treats always included chips and salsa plus a selection of freshly baked goods; the bread pudding is some of the best I've ever tasted. The opportunity to linger over coffee or afternoon tea and share stories and tips with other guests is an added bonus. El Paradero is perfectly designed for mingling and chatting if that is what you want or for retreating to the delightful southwestern decor of your individually decorated room. In addition, they give a AAA discount on some rooms; be sure to ask when making your reservations. I recommend El Paradero highly and appreciate the helpful communication with the owner.

  • Liked — Breakfast and tea + location
  • Tips/Secrets — Be sure to go to the state capital building to see the art collection.

We chose El Paradero B&B for our three day gathering for the following reasons--could walk to most places we were interested in. Court yard for breakfast & family gatherings. And most of all the cost! The staff was most accommodating. I would stay there again. I have told several friends about El Paradero . I am happy to recommend this B&B. --Lakewood,CO

I chose El Paradero for my first trip alone; it looked friendly and safe -- and it was! It was that and much, much more. Each morning I ate a full, leisurely breakfast in a sunny room or on the patio with intelligent, well educated and well traveled other guests. We exchanged information about sights to see and experiences. In the afternoon, many of us came back for tea time together, where we again exchanged news of our days. The tea offerings included chips and salsa, cookies, puddings, cakes, fresh-fruit cobblers -- ohmygosh, it was great. The staff often offered suggestions for little-known experiences and good restaurants, as well terrific service.

This was the perfect place for the solo female traveling alone for the first time. There were always friendly and helpful staff or guests around, the inn was locked and safe later in the evening, and the location was terrific. I took my car out once during my 5-day stay in Santa Fe. I walked everywhere -- to the plaza, to Canyon Road galaries, and to the shuttle bus to Museum Hill. I could have taken a shuttle to the Opera -- DO NOT miss the opera in Santa Fe, WOW! -- but chose to drive the 10 minutes instead. This is the perfect inn in the perfect location in a perfectly different city.

We stayed at El Paradero in July 2006. It has a great location within walking distance of the downtown plaza in Santa Fe. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The breakfast was bountiful and outstanding. The service was outstanding and seconds were always available (if desired). Coffee at 7:30 was a treat. Tea service at 4pm fulfilled a sweet tooth's dream. Chocolates were available to guests at any time. The owners provided assistance with siteseeing attractions and vacation travel planning. We had a great stay and recommend this B&B to other travellers.

The location is central but quiet (but within walking distance of everything), the staff is friendly and attentive, breakfast is terrific - this inn is everything you could ask for in Santa Fe (rates are very reasonable, too)!

Our stay was most pleasant and definitely worth repeating. The owners and their staff are very helpful and welcoming. The food was absolutely fabulous and the beds were very comfortable. The inn is close to the plaza which made shopping very convenient. I look forward to another opportunity to stay at the Inn on another trip to Santa Fe.
