We rented the Galisteo suite, it and the inn location were terrific. We were with in a short walk to the main center of town where great restaurants and shopping were plentiful. We recommend the inn on this alone.
However, the piano bar was a different story we do not recommend the atmosphere there. It appeared to attract quite a few locals who acted as if they resented the tourist. I say this because as we were trying to park one evening, during a break in the performance, we found several standing around smoking and blocking the driveway through to the parking area for the inn. When we asked them to please move, we were "flipped off".
Breakfast was straight out of the southwest portion of a Denny's menu. The inn keeper assured us that the construction noise we heard (power saws and hammers not 30 feet from our private patio) would only be during the hours of 8 am through 8 pm??? No quiet reading in your suite. Of course there was no mention of this prior to or during the booking process. Last but not least we found the inn keeper a little "creepy", she was trying too hard to be our "friend" and came off very insincere and phony. Later, we find a "gratuity" envelope in the suite labeled "for the maid" or "for inn keeper". We found this solicitation for a gratuity for the inn keeper just a little tacky. We hid the tip for the maid where she should easily find it during cleaning.
Would we stay there again? Absolutely, like we said, the room and location were terrific. we would ask about the construction, though.
