Can't say enough great things about Inn of the Turquoise Bear and the innkeeper/owner Dan. I have been to Santa Fe dozens of times and have enjoyed staying at a number of places, including two well known hotels that have 4.5 star ratings on tripadvisor. But, this is the one that I am planning to return to. It is fabulous...

Just spent a long girls' weekend at this utterly charming inn and it exceeded all of my expectations. The location is wonderful, the grounds lovely, the rooms beautifully appointed and comfortable (the bed sheets are incredible!) and the gourmet breakfasts simply amazing! The inn-keepers, Dan and Alex are lovely and gracious hosts who attended to our every need. I can...

This place is so stinking cute. Each room has a distinct character and charm, which makes you want to try them all. We stayed for a night (unfortunately only one) in one of the dog-friendly rooms on a road trip from San Francisco to Chicago. Road weary, we arrived to find cozy rooms equipped with fireplaces, and in our case...

My second Trip to the Wonderful Inn of the Turquoise Bear did NOT disappoint. This time I got to spend the holiday there and it was truly magical. The great part about the Inn is it provides a place to relax and do absolutely nothing, and then just get up and walk down town or drive to the many museums...
