“Great Value, but I'd enjoy Breakfast at one of the nicer restaurants...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

The Sage Inn is in a great location, quite a large motel type model, with a very nice staff. The fella Shawn who drives the bus for you into the Plaza area is very good, I hope they take care of him well 'cause he's definitely an asset. Atleast get him a heavier fleece, Come On !??!
So value here is the key, you aren't really expected to pay Santa Fe prices, yet you're there, and close enough to wander downtown, or out the door to dance at Tiny's, or for a wonderful dinner at Tomasita's, if you're new to Santa Fe and welcome a deal, you owe it to yourself to investigate this place.
Cheers, Salida1048

Room Tip: we asked and got a quite room nearer to the back of their property.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We stayed at the Santa Fe Sage Inn based on the reviews here. We were not disappointed! If you're looking for luxury, this isn't place; if you're looking for helpful, kind, and great service, this is the place! We were very impressed with the front desks hospitality, and we were even more impressed with our van/shuttle driver's over abundance of quality information and friendly demeanor. He was GREAT!

This is a great place for families with small children. The van to the Plaza was incredibly helpful, and you can walk to Tomasitas (a good restaurant) and the Saturday morning Farmer's Market in the old train depot.

Like I said, the rooms aren't luxurious, but they are clean and the beds are comfortable. The staff was friendly, accommodating, and we'll definitely stay here again when we come back to Santa Fe!

Thanks!

I needed a home-away-from-home that was close to everything in Santa Fe a week. What a warm, welcoming place this is! I needed a comfortable bed to rest and relax and it was more than I'd imagined. Every inch of the room was clean and the little extras of quality soaps, lotions and hair care were nourishing and nurturing. Who'd a thought? in a place that is so modestly priced. I love it. Because it's located next to Whole Foods, I'd planned to walk over to get a morning coffee - but the coffee that the Sage Inn serves with their breakfast once again exceeded my expectations so instead with cup in hand crossed the street and enjoyed the Railyard Park in the morning light. Great start, great day, great stay.

Room Tip: Just let them know what you want - they seem more than happy to accommodate.

When planning a return trip to Santa Fe, it was a not even a question of where we would stay. Traveling with my 80 year old father and adult daughter, the Santa Fe Inn worked so well for us on our last visit 3 years ago. The location is perfect for the guest that just wants a place for a good nights stay and convenient location for daily adventures. It is close to the Plaza, to our favorite restaurant;Tomasita's, and many other shops and restaurants. The daily breakfast is a perfect way to start the day; a nice place to meet up in the AM as each one of us arises at different times. Whole Foods store next door is a great place to grab munches or a picnic lunch.
Since our stay 3 years ago, I have noticed some cut backs. There was a $5/day parking charge. Honestly, just add the $5 on to the bill rather than having it an extra. The newspapers were no longer free in the lobby. Customers used to read the paper, then leave it for others. There was a vending machine to purchase the paper if needed. The rooms were a bit "tired". They need to be refreshed.
All in all, it is a good deal, but I have noticed a decline in the ambiance. To the Sage Inn: Take care of the updates because you do have a good thing going.

Thank you for returning to The Santa Fe Sage Inn. We especially appreciate hearing from our repeat guests. I wanted to let you know that we are currently making every effort to increase the quality of our rooms. We have already upgraded many of our rooms by changing the furniture package, and the bedding and installing flat screen televisions and refrigerators. I would love for you and your family to have the opportunity to stay in one of these rooms on your next visit. Please contact me directly the next time you wish to book with us so that we can make the proper accommodations.

We had to stay in Santa Fe overnight as my husband had a meeting there. Santa Fe is typically quite expensive, but we had a coupon. Making the reservation was easy and staff was very nice about accepting the coupon. I also needed a handicap room and had two large dogs. No problem. Upon arrival the front desk staff was very helpful. We were tired and cranky and needed to eat. They recommended several nearby restaurants. ( We opted for La Choza which was virtually across the street and wonderful.) Rooms are clean although a bit small (perhaps the Golden Retrievers in the room contributed to that perception) and nicely decorated in Southwest style. It is on a main road but somehow it was quiet. Parking is plentiful. There was a handicap parking space right in front of our room. Perfect! Breakfast is complimentary and there are several options. For those with pets, there is a park right behind the property with doggy poo bags. This worked out perfect for us. We will absolutely stay here again. I cannot say enough about how great the staff is here. Even the maintenance guy smiled and said hello.

Room Tip: We stayed in Building C which was in back. Very quiet and park right behind that building.

Stayed on our way home to MT from wintering in AZ. Customer service was great, clean well taken care of, not new but you can see that they maintain things.
Got here early from Albuquerque and was surprised in the change in temps and needed to change into warmer clothes. Didn't know if we would be able to check in since it was so early but they were very accommodating which was wonderful. They have a shuttle that takes you to Old Town but it was nice and sunny so we walked it is a good walk and lots to see. We did catch the shuttle for the ride back as there is quite a bit of walking around the plaza.
The rooms are very nice and comfortable would stay here again if in Santa Fe.

After reading reviews and seeing pictures of the place, it looked like a good place for a two night stay with our dog (plus, they had a good rate). However, after traveling for three weeks (this was our first stop) we have decided that this place was just average. It was clean, furniture nice as was most of the staff. It's about a mile walk to the plaza (we didn't use the shuttle, prefer exercise). But there wasn't much else to it. For a bit more money we could have stayed closer to the plaza, which we *should* have done. Or for a bit less, there is a Motel 6 nearby (which we stayed at in another city and it was fine). It's your typical two story Inn with doors facing the parking lot. My advice, get a 2nd room floor. We heard the people above us a LOT. When I mentioned this at checkout the person said "Yeah, you need to get a 2nd floor room here" and proceeded to answer the phone while printing out our receipt (didn't get a "Goodbye" or "Thanks") - but she was the only person that wasn't up to par on customer service.

On the plus side, it's not expensive and there is a nice park nearby which came in handy having the dog. Breakfast was average, typical American continental breakfast. I don't usually eat a big breakfast so that's fine sometimes.

So, overall, I can see why some people would rate this four or five stars but for us, it was just average and we'd stay close to the plaza next time.

Room Tip: Request a 2nd floor room!!! If you have a dog then a room in the building near the park is good.
