My partner and I actually happened upon this hotel through the Trinity's restaurant review in Urbanspoon.com. After looking at The Trinity's website, we decided to book a two-night stay.
We arrived a little early and our room wasn't quite ready, so we had lunch in their restaurant on the first floor. We were surprised how good it was. Check in was a breeze, but we did have to pay for the entire stay up-front, which wasn't a big deal.
There is a separate parking lot for guests, that will soon be gated, by the looks of the ready to be installed gates leaning up against the wall. All nine of the rooms are accessible from the outside (no entry from the lobby/restaurant). Also, there is no elevator.
We were shown to our room by one of the owners and were very surprised how well appointed the rooms were. Great decor, clean and bright. The room had a king size bed, two overstuffed chairs, desk, armoire with a large LCD television, great bed and bedding.
The bathroom was spectacular (we were very envious of it). Large tiled shower with a shower head that actually produces a nice flow of water. Towels were plush and amenities were nice, too. Your stay also includes breakfast from the restaurant, which was great.
The owners are very involved and are on property to make sure things are run well. That said, being from Dallas, it is not as polished as some of the fine hotels here, Phoenix, or other large cities. Clearly though, for this part of New Mexico, it is one of the finest. We will definitely be back.
