“A lovely experience!!!”
Reviewed August 13, 2011

We stayed a week in Santa Fe at the Adobe Star Inn (B&B) on McKinzie Street. We had a wonderful holiday in part because of the Inn keepers, Nelly-Joy and Alex, both were cheerful, accommodating, well informed and helpful. The breakfast at the Inn was delicious, offering a nice variety each day. The location of the Inn made getting to the Plaza and surrounding areas easy and quick. We would definitely stay again!

Instructions for your accommodations are left inside a coded entry door, which is OK; however, in our two night stay we never saw an owner or were greeted by anyone. Our "breakfast" of a small piece of quiche, a small serving of melon, and a muffin was slapped on the table in front of us by some hired person, who barely said a word. Room was very small and not very clean. Thhis was not like any B & B we've ever stayed at before and, of course, will never return to. We returned from the opera at 1 AM to find that someone had parked in our designated parking. Calls to the after hours number to tell us where else we could park were never returned.

This was the second visit to Adobe Star and we will stay here again. The location is super convenient to the Plaza and the neighborhood was quiet. The breakfasts were great and Una was very helpful regarding local hikes, attractions, etc. The February special rate made it a great deal as well.
We wanted a B&B with a wood kiva fireplace and they had a few rooms that fit the bill. And they conveniently provide firewood with fire starter and matches for a very reasonable price. Very nice for those cool February nights.
We would recommend this B&B!.

We stayed at the Adobe Star Inn in January, and had a wonderful time. Our room was very comfortable and very clean. We had breakfast each day and it was always yummy! With the Innkeepers information of the city and surrounding areas, they just about planned our days. We will definitely come back next year in January, great rates and the inn is very quiet.

This is tough review to write because the location is superb--you can walk to Plaza and hence don't need to search for (or pay for) parking place. But the B&B itself is shabby, neglected and it seems like there is no owner around. The girls who make and serve the breakfasts are very nice but they are not knowledgeable, don't know where things are or what to recommend in the area. There is no substitute for an onsite experienced manager who cares about each guest and sees to your comfort. Most of the time, there is no one there to ask anything of, no way to know what to do when someone else parks in your assigned parking spot (cars are towed here on a dime!) It feels kind of like the owners are just looking for what they can get out of the place and not putting much back in. If they don't want to run this business, they should sell it!
Still that location is great!

We were not prepared for dragging suitcases over uneven, narrow flagstone walkways. The place is a work in progress with the "courtyard" filled with leaves, dead plants,and dust. We were told this area was "going to be filled with small pebbles. The front yard was totally a mess and unkept with prickley bushes snagging our clothing as we waled on the sidewalks. The self serve check in was not welcoming and we had trouble using the coded door opener. Our view was an unfinished open storage area. This, too, was to be finished "soon". Our unit was the Black Mesa and, although small, could have been OK if only more attention had been paid to the details.. We reported two lights out upon entering and these were replaced. A couple of days later, there were more lights out and after leaving messages (No host is onsite) these were replaced. We had no box of tissues until the day before we were leaving. Sheets and towels were "tired looking" faded brown. The sheets were not changed daily and the bed was not even well made with lots of wrinkles, not what you expect of a quality B&B.
We walked across the street to the sister property for breakfast. The owner came in and greeted a group of return visitors, We were sitting at the same table. He did not acknowledge our presence. So much for appreciation of our business and warm hospitality. The breakfasts were at best predictable. Each morning a quiche like egg dish was served with a 3" triangle of cantaloupe or honeydew, a small glass of orange juice, and a very small muffin. Coffee was, for the most part ,"serve yourself" but was good coffee. One morning a man asked for a glass of milk and was told "we only serve the orange juice". The table was crowded and the napkins varied from cocktail size to luncheon size.. The cook/server was Nellie and quite pleasant.
The location is very good and an easy walk to the central bus station and plaza. This was the only good part about staying at the Adobe Star Inn.
