Santa Fe Suites is a two story multi-building motel with no elevators in the southern end of Santa Fe, NM. There are 2 dedicated handicapped rooms with roll-in shower. The buildings are built around a small courtyard adjacent to the office. Small pets are permitted. No pool, no restaurant on site. There is a laundry room near office area. For the location, amenities, and condition it is an unbelievable bargain.
Studio rooms clean and cover the essentials plus a kitchenette. For a range of $55 - $79 you will get a one queen bed, a love seat, coffee table, 2 nights stands (only 1 fits beside the bed in certain configurations), a 3 drawer dresser, large television, mirror, tall 2-seater table and 2 stools with backs. The configuration with 2 double beds doesn’t have a love seat or coffee table. That one is a very tight arrangement. Furniture is very basic, not very comfortable, and carpets seem to be indoor-outdoor type. Ask for extra pillows because you will get only 2 small ones.
The kitchen has 2 burners, small refrigerator/freezer, small dishwasher, good sized sink, microwave, and single cup coffee maker, plates/cups/flatware for 4, and 2 pans. The bathroom has full size tub/shower, sink, commode, heating lamp in ceiling.
The staff is very accommodating and on site 24/7. Ask them where to eat and where to buy turquoise, leather, chile, guns, etc. Everyone is properly trained; the cleaning staff is sweet and polite.
Free breakfast, standard cold fare, is 5:30 to 9:30. They are very short on tables but the guests come and go so it works out fine unless there is a large group traveling together. The coffee is bad to terrible. There is a Starbucks 100 feet away at the Alberson’s grocery store. The area is pretty quiet and a little tricky to find as it is tucked behind a strip mall and a medical professional building. It's a very safe area.
The only complaint is that the wifi sputters and coughs, even with the extra hotspots.
