“Historic Charm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My friend and I stayed two nights at this property - free parking in the lot and easy walking distance to all of the area's galleries, shops, restaurants and sights. Room itself was decorated in a pretty southwestern decor, loved slipping into a nice thick robe after a hot bath. The breakfast was alright; nothing special but there was plenty of it. The hotel staff at the desk was very good.

Room Tip: Our room was located over the parking lot at one end and on Friday night, the diners in their bar/re...

This is a pretty little inn in old town convenient to many museums and restaurants. It's reminiscent of an old motor inn but well done. The lobby is comfortable and staff is friendly. Rates were decent and included a hot breakfast with eggs, meat,potatoes, fruit, yogurt and rolls with coffee, tea and juices. Or room was clean and well kept with comfortable king bed, chairs and table and a window that opened.
There was even a small working fireplace. The room decor was Native American, and was also I. Adobe style, as is everything in Santa Fe. The bathroom was tiny but very clean and had beautiful tile in the bath/shower. Towels were large and fluffy. Amenities were nice and they provide bathrobes. Our room also had a mini refrigerator. There is a Tea and Cookie hour in the lobby and always an iced water stand. There is a bar/cafe with happy hour. We enjoyed our stay here and would stay again.

Room Tip: Our room faced the government buildings, but had a rooftop view. Ask for a room with opening windows...

We were on a cross cx car tour and stayed here because of Tripadvisor review--We loved it- my daughter and I thought they were very friendly, hospitable and caring. The rooms were clean and well attended to, the buffet was really great and a good window in time to make it convenient for all. The 15 dollar voucher was great for an afternoon break sometimes with entertainment, the tea and sherry offering in the afternoon was also wonderful after a day of site seeing.
The location is beyond great ( I have arthritic feet and this is priority), with garage- this is like a little "boutique" hotel which I will take hands down anytime over anything else. When you factor in garage, afternoon tea break and cocktail voucher then it is a no brainer that I will come back here again.

Room Tip: there are 2 buildings that are connected and there may be rooms that would be farther away from the...

Very nicely updated "motor inn" in the heart of Santa Fe. No complaints at all. Service excellent, good fresh fruit at buffet breakfast (but a shame to eat in a hotel while in Santa Fe), clean rooms, nice bath amenities. Three computers and printers for guests use free of charge. Sherry and cookies every afternoon. Sweet little pool area. Probably the hallway carpets could use updating. Parking a little tight, but plenty of it right in the heart of town. Not a deluxe hotel but perfect for the price.

Room Tip: Ask for a top floor room not facing the parking lot.

We stayed at the Inn for three nights and loved it. We appreciated the parking and could walk to almost everywhere we wished to go. A tour company will pick you up at the door. The rooms are beautifully decorated with southwestern touches. Breakfast is great and we enjoyed drinks and entertainment in the evening.

My sister and I stayed here one night on a recent girls getaway trip, very nice accommodations. Our stay included a credit at their adjoining bar/restaurant where we enjoyed margaritas! Also included was a full hot breakfast, very nice spread with eggs, bacon, sausage, fruit, breads etc. Their location is perfect with easy walks to the plaza, rail yard neighborhood and canyon road. Staff was friendly, everything was clean and beds were very comfy! Definitely would stay here again!
