Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Nestled near historic downtown, the Inn at Vanessie garners praise for its excellent location that allows guests to easily explore nearby sites on foot. The hotel's commitment to cleanliness and unique Southwestern decor in spacious rooms is frequently lauded, although a few guests miss having desks. The amenities, especially the varied breakfast and live piano entertainment, contribute to the hotel's cozy and charming atmosphere, enhancing its value. While the rates are generally deemed reasonable, a handful of travelers mentioned unexpected costs for breakfast and pet fees. The staff's friendly and professional service further amplifies guest satisfaction.

The service was amazing! I was personally shown to my room, which you don’t see much nowadays. The room was very clean and decorated nicely. The bed and pillows were so comfortable (nice soft sheets) I really enjoyed how quiet it was. I was on a solo trip and just wanted to relax and recharge. I was able to do just that. The location was amazing and walkable to the Plaza, and restaurants. Breakfast was great, had a great variety. There was even a gentleman playing the piano one morning, which was really cool. The man that runs the place is a hustler (don’t remember his name) He checks you in, shows you to your room, busses the tables at breakfast and was very polite and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.

Hotel's Favorite
The Inn at Vanessie offered an Amazing Stay for our 50th Anniversary! Our room (Tesuque) was comfortable with more amenities than we could use...the location was great as well (just blocks away from the Plaza). But the greatest feature of the Inn at Vanessie is the staff! Everyone was amazing...they welcomed us from the time we walked in the door until we departed. Ricardo and Galen took care of every minor detail. The housekeeping staff were great and attentive! The breakfast buffet was fresh with a huge variety of selections. We also celebrated our anniversary with dinner in the restaurant...it was delicious! Enjoy Your Stay!

I was traveling to Santa Fe for a conference being held a few blocks over. The room was spacious and clean, and I especially appreciated the working fireplace. The staff was lovely and very helpful. As others have noted, no bar/restaurant or breakfast. However, there’s a wonderful Mexican restaurant basically right next door. All in all, location, room quality and nice staff make this a great choice for the price.

The rooms are lovely. It is not a "resort," however. Dining room and bar were closed, and even no breakfast. The hotel said they couldn't provide breakfast because of a "waterheater problem" (they refunded half the resort fee). However, from reading through the reviews here, it looks like they've been using the waterheater excuse for the lack of food service for at least four months. As any homeowner knows, water heaters can be replaced in a day or two. So I'm skeptical that this is the real reason. I even checked in the restroom in the restaurant area and it had plenty of hot water in the sink. My guess is that they dismissed the kitchen staff to save money. In any case, my advice to the hotel is that it would make a lovely bed-and-breakfast and to stop trying to be a "resort." It is not a resort, and the resort fee is annoying and the source of negative reviews, because, well, there are no resort services. If it presented itself as a B & B (and actually provided its well-rated breakfast), it would get top reviews.

Lovely, comfortable room and has friendly, helpful staff. The property is attractive and well cared for. The manager had many recommendations for restaurants and area sites. Excellent location just a few minutes walk to Santa Fe Plaza and several excellent museums and shops. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway or a Santa Fe sightseeing trip.

This was a very nice place to stay just minutes/steps away from the Plaza. The room and decor was exceptional and the breakfast was nice. My husband and I would definitely recommend this to others and would love to come back and stay there again. Gallagher's from Colorado

I love this little spot! I was passing through Santa Fe on a solo trip and booked a last minute room for the night. It's within 2 blocks of the downtown/plaza area, so clean, comfortable, and easy to get settled into. Also, the included breakfast is especially good...I really enjoyed the veggie scrambled eggs! All the staff were so kind and welcoming. Inn at Vanessie is definitely on my list of favorites!

I have never experienced service this caring. The staff went above and beyond several times to make sure that our stay was great ("Oh, you usually eat eggs in the morning," said the sweetheart in charge of the already lush and unusual breakfast buffet, "I'll go make you some. How would you like them--dill and heavy cream okay?"). This was at a time of year, over New Year's, when all the restaurant and hotel staffs in Santa Fe are tired, tired, tired, and yet all the staff, especially the Manager and Assistant Manager kept finding charming ways to surprise us with their generosity. The At first, I was a little unsure--there's no lobby in the traditional sense--you enter through the dining room/piano bar, turn to go down a small hall into the breakfast room, and there's an office beyond that. My initial befuddlement was settled by the warm welcome and generous help getting settled into our beautiful room. The room was a nice size, beautifully furnished, and equipped with a comfy chair and a small hand drum in case we were overtaken by the urge to summon any of the zillion spirits that crowd the air of Santa Fe. Or just make a little noise. Beds was great. Bathroom was huge and wonderfully appointed. The aforementioned breakfast buffet featured everything from pies to salad and gorgeous fruits. Not like anything I've ever seen anywhere--more like a lavish brunch set out by a friend who loves to cook.

outstanding service and a beautiful setting. Unfortunately, just before we arrived, they had to close the dining room due to a water heater breakdown. however, they made arrangements for breakfast at a cute French bistro next door. dining room was re-opened on day 3 of our stay. DO NOT miss breakfast at the inn! It's over-the-top!

Wonderful! We stayed in a suite and had a private outdoor patio. Was great place for our dog. Lots of room and lovely decor. Great breakfast and over staff was superb. Will stay again. Is right near the plaza, but quieter and better for a vacay with the dog. You can walk to the plaza in 5 minutes and then enjoy peace in your room. Park a block away as well.
