“Perfect stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I stayed for two nights at the hotel. Its a perfect location for exploring downtown. We stayed in two traditional double queen rooms. The rooms were beautiful furnished and had a warm homely feeling. The front desk manager was very friendly and helpfull and provided us with every information we needed. Breakfast was absolutely perfect! The pool was quite small but ok for the kids. I can highly recommend this hotel.

I always stay at the Inn of the Governors while the New Mexico Legislator is in session. It is comfortable, convenient, the food is tasty, and the staff is very helpful. I've never had the opportunity to swim in the pool, but it looks very inviting. The hotel is also close to the Santa Fe Plaza.

I love this hotel! Centrally located on the plaza, walking distace from amazing restaurants. Excellent breakfast in the morning included in the room price. Beautiful large rooms, some with Kiva fireplaces and the wood all ready to go!!
Excellent staff. Also parking available on site.

I always look forward to my stay at the Inn!

Room Tip: Well worth it to book a room with fireplace.

The location can not be beat in Santa Fe. The rooms are spacious and the kiva fireplaces with supplied pinion wood makes the stay!

Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Staff was friendly.

This was our 2nd stay and we are already looking forward to our next.

We arrived at 11:00 AM with no reservations. It was cold and windy that day (Dec. 29, 2012). The registration clerk found us a very nice room that we could have immediately. After cleaning up, we made our way across town to the SantaCafe for lunch, which was really enjoyable. At 4:00PM we went to the lobby of our hotel, and enjoyed sipping sherry with the other guests. Our concierge was pouring that evening, so we inquired about a nice restaurant that is close by. He steered us to a magnificent place, just around the corner. Early the next morning, we followed a heavenly aroma to a fantastic, full-blown, hot breakfast buffet that we enjoyed next to a roaring fire in a kiva.

We felt well taken care of, and we will definitely return.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Inn of the Governors has some good points and some not so good points. We reserved our room here based on reviews and location and honestly for nearly $300 - expected it to be similar to the Anasazi or other places we have stayed in the center of Santa Fe.

GOOD:
The Inn has a quaint lobby, is well decorated and has a FABULOUS location. In literally 1 minute, you can walk to the plaza to shop and never get in your car. The breakfast is good, the bar is great for a drink and the pool area is lushly landscaped. The rooms are for the most part tastefully decorated.

NOT SO GOOD:
The rooms all have outside facing doors like a motel. It just doesnt have the ability to have a warm feel. The ceilings in the rooms are a cheap tin drop in ceiling and with the outside facing rooms, there is a lot of noise that you shouldnt have to deal with in paying nearly $300 for a motel type room.

All in all, it is a great location and is quaint but should in no way be compared to the other hotels that are in this price range and this locale. So based on value, price and benefits - I am giving it an "average" rating. We werent impressed.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We lived in Santa Fe some 40 years ago and love to visit. Inn of the Governors is our choice of a centrally located hotel at a reasonable price. We stayed there three nights the week before Christmas and enjoyed ourselves. Some rooms and the ones we always rent have kiva style fireplaces with a supply of wood just down the hall if you run out in the room. The in house restaurant does a good job on a limited menu and we had room service dinner two of our three nights. If we have a complaint, it is the the included breakfast does not seem to change and the preparation on one of our three mornings left much to be desired. I wrote that up on my satisfaction survey and we will see what happens. The breakfast buffet is complete with all you could expect but they do need to rotate the egg dishes and perhaps pay attention to some of the preparation a little more.

Room Tip: If visting in the winter, get a room with a kiva fireplace.
