“Sage Inn well located”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We spent a day and a night in Santa Fe Sage Inn and found it a reasonably priced hotel with a helpful staff. It has an hourly shuttle to and from the town plaza, a decent free breakfast with fresh fruit and waffles, and a pool. The air conditioned room had a strong antiseptic smell but the fan on the AC unit seemed to help. The check in is 4pm but they found us a room when we arrived around 12. There is a Whole foods next door and some shops and restaurants nrearby. Overall I would saw it's a good middle of the road hotel. If you're looking to stay in a adobe style Santa Fe hotel with lots of southwest décor, look elsewhere. But if you're looking for a good value and a clean room with helpful staff, this place certainly fills the bill.

Room Tip: We were in the back which was maybe a little quieter.

The rooms are nicely decorated. Parking is a little tight, but without problems. At night, our room was silent. The fan/ac was very quiet. The beds are firm and good. Rooms are a little tight too, but comfortable. Breakfast was skipped because the room was crowded and selection small. Location is very close to downtown plaza. No complaints. It was very comfortable.

After spending many years at the Lodge overlooking the city, because it was closer to our son's apartment, we finally gave up and booked with the Sage Inn. The Lodge had a wonderful staff but whoever owns the complex just doesn't seem to be putting into it what we expect. Internet access was next to none, no matter where I tried, the breakfast was fine but very limited on choices and the wait is long, and don't try staying there on a weekend with their nightlife activities. If you go out for the evening, you'll have to park far from your room's location and usually in darker parking lot locations. The Sage, at our son's suggestion, proved to be what we've been looking for. I can't say the internet access was that good, but I was on and active unlike so many attempts at the Lodge. Our only pet peeve at the Sage was the size of the furniture. The furniture made for a tighter feel, in an otherwise very clean and comfortable room. We liked how the hotel provided parking lot security after dark. This really provided an added element of safety for us. You do have to pay $5 a day for parking, but this was well worth the cost, and we were never stuck in a DARK out of the way location. Our favorite thing about the Sage was it's location within walking distance of the Santa Fe rail yards, the Second Street Brewery at the rail yard, and Tomasita's Mexican Restaurant. Plus, how could I forget an easy walk to the Cowgirl BBQ and Hall of Fame? They are only six blocks from the Plaza, but they still offer a free shuttle to take you around. With Santa Fe being our destination every July, since 2000, we didn't feel the need for the shuttle but might have given it a try, if had been staying longer. Our preference is to get out and walk, which makes the Sage so convenient. We were also so surprised to have a normal continental type breakfast available in a decent sized dining room with plenty of choices to help start off each day. We will definitely return to the Sage. I'll be the first to admit that every hotel/motel has it's headaches occasionally, but at least the Sage did not disappoint us. Not one little bit.

Room Tip: We've only stayed there once, but we enjoyed the second floor overlooking the parking lot and th...

This is a large motel within brief walking distance from downtown, the Farmer's Market, and other attractions. The rooms are clean and large enough, if not expansive. The rates are quite good, especially for Santa Fe. Parking is a little tight, so try to arrive before the late afternoon check-ins if you want to be near your room. Probably the best of the many motels along Cerrillos Road near downtown.

We had a wonderful stay at the Sage Inn. It was very convenient to the plaza area and across the art market on Saturday morning. Our room was quiet and the breakfast was good (I always like the make-your-own waffles). You can walk to the Plaza or take the shuttle, which runs once-an-hour. Overall, a good value and we would definitely stay at the Sage Inn again.

My Daughter and I wanted to stay near the plaza without spending a lot of money. We just stumbled upon the Sage Inn by accident. Found it to be neat and clean, the room adequate in size. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The building itself reminded me of a Holiday Inn from the 1960's, and so gave me a nostalgic feeling from my childhood. I recommend it.

We went to Santa Fe for Zozobra and chose to stay a bit off the plaza to save a little bit of money. I was satisfied with the reviews for the Sage Inn on this site and decide to give them a try. The rates were very reasonable considering it was the Zozobra celebration, which is a big draw for this city. We were very satisfied with our king bed and the size of the room. It wasn't a huge room, but it had everything we needed. A comfortable bed, a flat screen tv, and a functioning ac. The hotel also had a shuttle to take patrons to the plaza. We were also very close to a couple of very good restaurants.

After the burning of Zozobra we did have to walk back to the hotel, however it only took us about 20 minutes from the plaza. Not bad at all and the weather was Great. In the morning we had some excellent coffee and there was a small choice of fruits and pastries and eggs. The thing about Santa Fe is that there are so many fabulous restaurants, so the hotels selection was just right to hold us over until we decided where we wanted to go for breakfast. However I think there was enough of a selection to satisfy anyone who didn't want to go out or breakfast.

I only have one complaint. Check out was at 11am but at 845am housekeeping was knocking on the door to see if we had left! It was my husbands chance to sleep in as the grandparents were taking care of our baby for the night down in Albuquerque. Unfortunately because of the impatience of housekeeping he was unable to do so. The front desk was very apologetic and said they would address it. Obviously it wasn't too big of a deal to not leave them a great review.

Very nice staff, good rooms, and a nice free breakfast. We will stay here again. But we will be sure to put the do not disturb on the door!

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I am happy to hear that you had the chance to stay with us and got to see Zozobra. I do apologize for the fact that housekeeping was a little over zealous in wanting to clean your room so early. this is something that has been discussed with our head housekeepers. Please remember us for your next trip to Santa Fe.
