“A real find.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2014

Great upscale motel just minutes from downtown Santa Fe. Welcoming, friendly and helpful staff - nothing seemed to be a problem. We stayed in one of the casitas rather than the motel block - room was small but stylish and comfortable. Outside private garden more than compensated for the small room though - great place to sit outside and relax. Breakfast is included and much better than standard motel breakfast fare - great outside patio area to eat with a wood fire burning to compensate for chilly high altitude mornings. Farmers market, excellent galleries and restaurants are just minutes away on foot. Less than 10 minutes walk to the central plaza. One of our top stays in our 2 week road trip.

Room Tip: Recommend the casitas.

This was really a great stay. We were there 3 nights with the kids and we had two rooms, both very clean, nice.
In the center of Santa Fe so you can easily walk to the main plaza. You can also walk to the Lushun if you want, only 20 minutes !
Rooms well equipped with fridge and micro wave.
One of the room had a small private garden.
You take the breakfast outside or in the dining room and you really feel as if you were at home.
The owner will give you many advices on things to be seen, restaurants etc...
I definitely recommend that place !

Overall, we liked this place. It's a great location, off the street, clean, plenty of free parking, full breakfast and the room included a kitchenette. The bed was too soft for our taste, the toilet paper is too thin and the shower/water closet was really, really small. We could hear the floor creaking above us, so we'd recommend a casita or the second floor (neither was available when we booked). It's within walking distance to the plaza. Overall, it was a good place for the price.

Room Tip: Second floor or casita

We found this hotel to be charming with lots of Spanish tile accents, luxurious bedding, and it is set back a bit from the road so it feels quaint and is quiet. The room we had also had a kitchenette which was pretty well stocked and clean. There was just a shower and not a full bath, so do be aware of that if you need to have a bathtub. You can walk to the Santa Fe Plaza, as the hotel says, too, which was convenient. As lovely as the hotel itself is, though, the breakfast is what makes this hotel a special surprise. The receptionist had us indicate what time we thought we'd be eating so that they could prepare things fresh and in the right quantities, I imagine, and when we got there, a woman named Christine showed us the many wonderful choices from fresh fruit and yogurt to gluten-free items, and I have to say this was the best free hotel breakfast I ever had. In fact, I think this is the best buffet breakfast I have ever had, period, paid or free, even ones I've made myself! The selection was amazing, and then the setting was equally amazing. There was a fountain, a fireplace (it was August, so it wasn't lit, but I imagine this is quite a nice feature in the fall), and lots of tables that created a welcoming, relaxed feel. I could tell that Christine was truly proud of her work, and after enjoying her creations, I believe her pride is well placed. It was simply fabulous, and we highly recommend this hotel. Would definitely stay here again!

Great little centrally located motel. Everyone was very nice and helpful. Breakfast was excellent with choices for gluten and dairy free. At last I could enjoy a yummy breakfast, and it was outside next to the fireplace. The fountain added a nice touch. Our room was on the second floor and it was very quiet. I would certainly stay again.

We enjoyed being close to the plaza as all as the farmers' market and the restaurants at the depot . The service at the Santa Fe Motel was marvelous. We stayed in a room the first night and then moved to a casita, which was cozy, cute, and quiet.

Room Tip: try out the casitas for fun

This is a lovely motel. It was the nicest place we stayed in all trip. Ipod docking station, super large TV, lovely décor, nice toiletries and lovely little touches like tiny peppers resting on the towels.

We had booked breakfast for 8:00am, unfortunately it seemed all the other guests had booked for 7:45. I had been looking forward to eating in the alfresco dining area, but when we arrived it was full. We sat inside at a communal table and the boys watched TV whilst they ate their breakfast. There was plenty of choice and you could even make your own breakfast burrito.

The other guests at the hotel seemed a little standoffish compared to other travellers we met on our trip. Maybe this was because this was hotel was more expensive than the others we stayed at. Even so, it doesn’t kill you to say morning.

A nice 15 minute stroll into town. The only negative was that we didn't have more time here.

Recommend.
