“Absolutely lovely and different”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We were sorry to have only stayed one night because this place was even better than amazing! Steeped in charm, the hotel is located far from the rest of the world on 25 acres of a working farm. The hotel itself is the old family home from the 1930s, featuring the Spanish style building with several hotel rooms, reception and dining room surrounding the central courtyard. Other guest rooms, the pool and exercise room are in separate buildings nearby. We were lucky to have a room in the main building and just loved it. Roomy yet cozy, we slept like babies but honestly didn't spend too much time in our room since the farm and gardens outdoors beckoned for strolls. Right away we met a young Roadrunner! Then we met the 2 peacocks and farther down the paths came upon the farmyard with farmers milking goats. They use all the produce from the farm in their hotel restaurant, with leftovers used to feed the pigs and baby animals. We jumped at the chance to visit farmer Sean working on the organic propogration of lavender plantlings, then take a tour with farmer Keith through the growing fields, hearing how they use old native watering methods and composting that yields dark rich soils for the 25 acre farm. We finished with a yummy fig picked right off a tree. The hotel kitchen was being painted when we stayed and I was a bit aprehensive when they told us our dinner and breakfast were to be served at the Culture Center on the property. No worries, I think we even lucked out because the view from the enormous porch, over the antique tiled swimming pool, to mountains miles in the distance could not have been better. La Merienda was so romantic, with white table cloths dripping to the terra cotta floor, faultless wait service and fantastic food. The art there was exquisite. They call their menu Rio Grande Valley cuisine - that night featured 2 pork entrees, we might have liked a choice of another meat. Next morning we had a choice of 2 breakfast entrees, both very unique and equally delicious. Their bacon is to die for! Alas we had to move on, but we'll be back. Thanks for a most memorable stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main house.

My spouse an I had a most wonderful 3 days here in September 2012. The surroundings, accommodations, food,
amenities and service were absolutely 5 Star! We have travelled throughout the world staying in small inns and B&Bs. We have almost exclusively chosen these from the Select Registry http://www.selectregistry.com/ and so have a very high bar from which to judge. Los Poblanos is in the top 3 if not top spot for us after our stay. We will be back undoubtedly. Kudos! Keep up the Great work!

Room Tip: Very Rustic to Modern polished The Historic Inn is Rustic the out buildings are newer. All are first...

This was the most amazing inn I have ever stayed at...the attention to detail cannot be beat. Amazing style- it was like staing somewhere that appeared right out of the pages of Pottery Barn or Anthropologie ads. The beds were covered in high thread-count sheets, rooms included fire places, direct tv,lavender bath products made from the farm, and even ear plugs in case the property's two peacocks got rowdy (which they didn't, only ocassionaly during matin season I guess, but at least you are prepared)!

My fiancé and I arrived late for check in, but the front desk staff were kind enough to let us self-check in and the left our room keys, a map, and a kind note with breakfast instructions outside the main office.

We walked around the property and were just stunned by its beauty...green house, salt water pool, lavender fields, barn yard, farm shop with local goods, adorable farm animals, secret gardens and wild flowers everywhere, bocci ball court, outdoor dining areas, giant wood carved doors, beautiful lighting for eving exploring...I could go on!

Oh and the complimentary, organic, gourmet breakfast prepared just for you and served by a charming and witty waiter in the morning isnt that bad either.

When can I go back?!

Subject: thank you

We recently visited Los Poblanos for a weekend wedding celebration. We felt transported to another time and place as we strolled the grounds, watched the peacocks and relished the delicious meals. We are now back home from our vacation and in the throes of our regular hectic routine. We have been savoring the products we bought in the farmstore using them to the last drop...a reminder of the wonderful relaxing time we had when our lives slowed down and our days were stress free. We plan to return next time we visit Albuquerque! Many thanks for a beautiful memory.

Room Tip: we slept in the farm suites and found them cozy and more than adequate

We stayed here for one night to attend a wedding held at the Inn. Our room was a very large suite in the original building. It was delightfully decorated with a large king bed and a corner fireplace. The inn features a salt-water pool, a farm store, fields of lavender, and multiple gardens. The even was a white pea-hen wandering the grounds. Breakfast was served in a very cozy dining room. the food was inventive and the service very good. Los Poblanos is situated in the suburbs of Albuquerque along with many horse farms and estates. It is about a ten minute drive to Old Town.

Oh my goodness! I wish we'd stayed more than one night. Cool, comfortable, delicious food, nice pool/fitness room, lovely grounds, lots of puppies. Really special place. Worth going to New Mexico for on it's own.

Wow. It's hard to imagine this place living up tot he rave review, but that it does. It's so good that it;s actually quite hard to put into words because a lot of it just seems to be the "feel" of the place. You roll up a quite tree-lined drive and enter into a one-story place that just feels like you've both stepped back in time and stepped forward into total relaxation and a retreat from the real world.

My room, the McCormick room in the inner courtyard of the reception building, had a wonderful old farmhouse feel to it and was quite lovely. The grounds were wonderful and they've somehow selected a playlist that plays at the perfect low volume from the kitchen (and wherever else) of some kind of southern jazz or I don't even know what, but it totally added to the feel of being far away from your regular life.

The farm section with goats, chickens and roosters, a cow and a llama were unique and the 2 male peacocks (one was all white) strutting around was another unexpected touch. Although, if you've never spent extended time with peacocks, you should know that at night, they can scream like someone's skinning a cat, so...be warned. But the inn provided earplugs and a note to warn you of this if you didn't know about that trait. I only heard them mewling a few times at about 10 at night.

The food was very, very good and fresh. They were accommodating of the fact that I had to leave early the next a.m. for a conference and so cooked me breakfast earlier than the official start time. So, major "thumbs up" for not being jerky about that when they had every right so say, "no breakfast for you."

I only got to stay here for less than 24 hours, which was a real shame in hindsight, so I will absolutely be making a trip back here to give it a proper 3 or 4-day stay, which it deserved. I ended up using my little time to go over to Acoma Pueblo which was totally worth it, but which sucked up a good 5 hours, round-trip.

I have stayed in zillions of hotels/inns at this point and I think I can honestly say that this was the coolest, most attractive hotel/inn I have ever been at. That's right. I said it. It's THAT good.

Room Tip: All rooms looked to be good in their own way.
