Reviewed August 26, 2007

This has to be as much a thank you as a review. Thank you Marlene and George for your beautiful place, the views, the silence and the yummy bed. Thank you for the excellent breakfast, how can i make your salsa! Thank you for having a place where the full moon rose last night and was breathtaking, thank you for the beautiful sitting room with a book I had been looking for for months. The attention to detail at this small b&b is incredible. if you love New Mexico, you will love this place. last night i just sat on the back patio while the moon rose, there is a meditation area where i welcomed in my birthday. The best.

Without a doubt this was the best place I have stayed during my trip to New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado.
It's on the outskirts of El Paso and only has a dirt road leading up to it: you wonder where you'll end up.
Well, it has:
- two friendly dogs
- a great view on the surrounding mountains
- rocking chairs
- breakfast cooked when en whatever you like
- hummingbirds
- large bedrooms with books and other stuff to browse
- complimentary drinks and snacks
- modern pleasures like TV and wireless internet
- welcoming owners
- only 4 guest rooms
- absolute quiet location but within 10 minutes drive to many shops and restaurants

Stayed September 2006

***Winner: TripAdvisor's Best Photos of a Hotel With No Photos Contest***

Our family stayed at Casa de Suenos in July, taking three of the four rooms. This was a sad occasion for us as we were in the area for a funeral but it was also sort of a family reunion as three siblings and spouses from different parts of the country got together for a long weekend.

We chose the Casa over other El Paso area hotels due to the proximity to the west side of town where our parents had lived for 20 years. We also wanted the intimacy of a B&B. This turned out to be the perfect place for us. The common areas in the courtyard and the huge back patio overlooking the mountains and desert were wonderful for spending time together. We enjoyed sitting out on the large communal patio every morning with our cups of coffee and every evening with our bottle of wine.

Unlike most B&Bs each room had also had a private entrance with a place to park your car just outside your small private patio.

Marlene and George made us feel completely at home. Abi was a wonderful hostess as well! And the visiting neighbor dogs Peanut and Charlie Brown accompanied us on our daily walks along the mesa.

The rooms were charmingly decorated in the New Mexican theme with Indian style prints and decorations. Each room was different but all had comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. Bathrooms had lots of counter space and thick bathrobes. Rooms had a coffee maker and supplies for coffee and tea. George kept a thermal pot of fresh coffee all morning in the dining room so we preferred having a cup there to take out to the patio to watch the sunrise. Our room also had a CD player plus a supply of books, magazines and wine glasses. Packaged snacks such as chips and cold drinks and bottled water were available at all times in the entry hall area. This area also had a refrigerator for the guests to use to store a small amount of personal food (or restaurant leftovers).

Our family was able to sit down together for breakfast each morning in the large dining/living room. Four of us are vegetarian and each day Marlene and George had incredible breakfast selections for all of us. Something different and wonderful everyday such as waffles, huevos rancheros, omelets, and fresh fruits.

This inn is off the beaten path but because of that we felt like we truly were able to relax in the quiet atmosphere, watch the hummingbirds and see the most incredible amount of stars in the night sky. The location is perfect for driving the scenic back road to Las Cruces and Old Mesilla where there are nice shops and restaurants. Marlene and George have good recommendations for places to shop and eat. But the location is also convenient if you want to spend time in El Paso since it is not far from the interstate highway and only about 20 minutes to downtown.

We won’t stay anywhere else when we return to the El Paso/Las Cruces area!

Technically this little inn is in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, but actually it is at the edge of civilization near El Paso, Texas. Located down a dirt road with excellent views, this spotless inn offers B & B-style accommodations with individual entrances to most rooms. The adobe exterior is lovely, the innkeeper, Marlene, is wonderful. My husband and I stayed in Bubba's Bunkhouse, a large room with two separate entrances. It is decorated like a very upscale bunkhouse...Bubba never had it this good! The pine bed was extremely comfortable with a very firm mattress; touches of the West decorated the room, like a rusty frying pan on the wall and pine shutters on the windows. You latched the bathroom door shut with a rope over a horse-shoe, and the bathroom sink was a big metal bucket recessed in the counter. It might sound rustic but it is whimsical and all Marlene's little touches make it pure fun. Her breakfast is fabulous; the lounge area is warm and welcoming with a beehive fireplace. Women traveling alone will be safe and secure here. It's very quiet. A couple of rooms allow you to stay with your pet, a boon for dog lovers. You can drive a short way to a great restaurant, Billy Crew's. This place was peaceful and fun. Breakfast was fresh fruit and yogurt followed by a huge breakfast burrito. I highly recommend this place. You can visit Mesilla, a sort of Santa Fe as it might have been 30 years ago, without the high prices and crowds. My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here.
