“Convenient location and wonderful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We stayed for four very pleasant nights at the Santa Fe Motel & Inn. An easy fifteen minute walk would get us almost anywhere we wanted to go in the old historic part of Santa Fe. The very knowledgeable front desk staff went out of their way to answer our questions and help us make the most of our time in Santa Fe. The breakfast ladies were so cheery and attentive. The well prepared wholesome breakfast served in our choice of two dining areas was a wonderful start to each day. We enjoyed meeting other travellers while we lingered over coffee while waiting for shops and museums to open for the day. The Santa Fe Motel and Inn was clean and well maintained. We appreciated having a room with a kitchenette and separate bedroom and the use of a second floor terrace to enjoy the bright sunny days and colorful sunsets. The nearby Whole Foods store and Farmers' Market were great sources of food for lunches while nearby restaurants provided plenty of choice for dinner. Overall, we felt that staff made a point of getting to know us and were keen to help make our stay a great one. We would love to return to the Santa Fe Motel and Inn soon and explore some more of Santa Fe.

I am so proud of my front-desk staff... They make most "concierge's" seem like they don't know Santa Fe! Not only do the know the finer dining establishments, but they can direct you to places like Johnny's Cash Store, for the absolute best Tamales you've ever tasted, or that great little hot dog stand just up the street, for a real "Chicago Dog", or a traditional Frito Pie, to make the 5 & 10 jealous!

We stayed in Casita #18 for 3 nights and loved every minute of it! The beds were amazingly comfortable and the staff was so friendly! The complimentary breakfast was fantastic and offered a good variety of different types of food and we loved sitting by the fireplace in the outdoor dining room to eat. We were within an easy walk of the Farmers Market at the Railyard, the Plaza area, and many other area attractions. Loved the Southwestern decor of the motel and the interior of the rooms, especially the red chiles that were placed on our bath towels and those hanging at all of the doors and gates!! Would definitely recommend this establishment to anyone!

Well... I have to admit, Casita 18 is one of my favorites too! I like it because it is hidden away a little, so you can have a bit more privacy! And, the nice little courtyard is perfect for that intimate glass of wine in the evening... You know, the office has wine openers and real wine glasses to make it even nicer for you!

We stayed here for one night and I was very pleased with the room-clean, very roomy, (#4) great decor. Comfortable bed, good location-easy walk to most places we wanted to go. The bathroom was a good size with plenty of hot water. Breakfast was great with a good variety of food. Staff was very helpful with suggestions. On checkout I said I had a high altitude headache and was given advil so I didn't have to find a store-thank you! I loved that there was a yoga mat in the room.

Room Tip: Room 4 was very roomy

This facility was everything and more than expected. The location is perfect for walking into town for shopping, food and museums. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about all things Santa Fe and beyond. Breakfast was great. The room was an end unit with parking outside the door. There were no noises at all during the night which was appreciated. The enitre facility is in pristine condition. We will definitely stay here again when travelling to Santa Fe.

Expect the unexpected at Santa Fe Motel & Inn... We take great pride in not being your cookie-cutter motel! Each room is uniquely decorated with furniture that was hand picked from local shops, and the beautiful til work that adornes each room is done by local artisans. Our staff is nearly as unique, and you will get a sincere welcome from everyone here.

Appreciatively,

This delightful motel is located 10 minutes walk from the heart of Santa Fe. The rooms are small, but have authentic and well-done Southwestern decor. The staff is friendly and helpful, the breakfast buffet is terrific. All of this, and at reasonable prices, too!

It doesn't get any better! We had a large room with two comfy queen beds and a wonderful breakfast with fruit, scrambled eggs, sausages, and freshly-made hot frosted cinnamon buns. The room was very impressive. The tile was perfectly coordinated and clearly done, and done very well, by hand. It was worth going just to get ideas for decorating!

Thank you for your very nice comments... Our owner takes great pride in our being unique at Santa Fe Motel and Inn. We purchase the room furniture from a local import company, and hand pick every piece ourselves, and the beautiful tile work is done by Santa Fe artisans that strive for artistic excellence. Yes, I think many decorating touches have gone home from here!

A comfortable stay, wonderful breakfast room, and friendly staff. A quick walk to the plaza makes this a convenient location for Santa Fe visitors. If noise is an issue, you may want to ask for an upper floor room. Our room was on the parking level and it was a bit noisy at night and early morning as guests arrived and departed. I would definitely choose the Santa Fe Motel and Inn again.
