Pueblo Bonito Bed and Breakfast Inn
Ranked #9 of 37 Santa Fe B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
GreenLeadersSilver level
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Conveniently located within a 10 minute walk of the Plaza, and 5 minute walk from the Capitol Building, Pueblo Bonito B&B became our home-away-from-home for our 5 night stay in Santa Fe. The parking, on the property, is free, and we parked directly in front of our tastefully decorated and comfortable suite (#17). We loved the kiva fireplace, the breakfast buffet and the afternoon tea. We also loved meeting the other guests, all of whom were very interesting. Conversation at breakfast is one of the bonuses of a B&B and we met some great folks. We also enjoyed the free wireless internet.

A few things to remember:
1. Pueblo Bonito is comfy, unique and each room is different. This is not a fancy place - there is no AC, room service, etc. The rooms are made up each day, towels are changed, and the fireplace cleaned and relaid.
2. Handicapped access - I suggest you contact the manager when making a reservation if you have handicapped needs. The bathtub/shower in our unit was fine for us but would be inaccessible for someone who is unable to step over the side of a tub.
3. Suites - Our suite was a one bedroom suite - the second "bed" was a futon in the living room. This worked fine for us - two girls on a girls' getaway, because my friend did not mind sleeping on a futon. The bathroom had to be accessed through the bedroom - again not a problem for us - just know that anyone sleeping in the living room with have to cross the bedroom to get to the toilet.
4. Hours - the staff and owners are extremely helpful and customer service oriented. They do not live on the premises, so any requests for additional equipment or information needs to be communicated earlier in the day.
5. Fireplace - one fire per day is included in the price of the room. That means 3-4 logs and a firestarter. Additional fires cost additional $ - $15 per fire as of our stay in Jan. 2013. We wanted to buy extra wood at Whole Foods, but we were told the management frowned on guests buying their own wood.

I love places like Pueblo Bonito because it felt homey, unlike a hotel room which is OK for sleeping but not for hanging out. This would be a great place for a family reunion!

Thanks so much for the kind words. We aim to create a wonderful experience here at Pueblo Bonito B&B, and while you touched on a few things that make us so unique, I wanted to address a couple of inaccuracies.

All of our rooms do have air conditioning. They're just generally not available during the winter months, which is when you stayed with us. We convert the rooms to air conditioning when it's more appropriate considering the temperature, although we can do so earlier if need be.

Our San Felipe room has limited handicap access. And we encourage all of our guests with special needs to call the facility beforehand, so we can meet your requirements. Our hours are 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. With other inns closing at 6 p.m., we're the latest desk-manned inn downtown! Since our rooms are self-contained, guests can let us know of any additional needs (for instance, ice or extra firewood) before 8 p.m.

In case of emergency, procedures for after hour needs are provided to all guests and explained upon check in. Our fireplaces are real, and a special feature of our inn—all rooms are complete with kiva fireplaces. We provide an already-made fire in the hearth for guests to enjoy, that provides 2.5-3 hours worth of burning ambiance. It's perfect for relaxing after dinner and before bedtime. Again, this is a real fire and primarily used for ambiance and not heat, as the room has heaters. 98% of our guests find this more than adequate. Allowing guests to burn items in these fireplaces without our knowledge or approval of what is being burnt could be hazardous. Thus, we allow only wood provided by Pueblo Bonito and pressed paper logs; we don't use firestarters.

Thanks again for taking the time to leave a review. I do appreciate it, I just wanted to correct a few things. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, and we're always happy to host you whenever you're in the area!

Sincerely,
Amy Behm

This was out second stay at Pueblo Bonito and both times were wonderful. If you are looking for the Santa Fe experience, this is a place to stay. Even though the rooms on Galisteo are larger, ask for a room on the courtyard, as they are quieter and offer seclusion and privacy. I am not sure if all rooms offer kivas and vigas, but make sure you get a room with these too for that true SW atmosphere. We would light out prepared fire in the evening and when we returned the next afternoon, it was cleaned and set up for the next night. Note that it is within walking distance of the Plaza, the Railroad District, and Gaudelupe St.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a courtyard room.

We're honored to be called the quintessential Santa Fe experience! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review.

All 18 of our rooms feature a kiva fireplace and private bath, many have viga ceilings, hardwood or redbrick floors and all have the original foot and a half thick adobe walls thus providing quiet and privacy- regardless of location. Our property dates back to the 1860's, thus it naturally reflects the historic and native cultures of the people of New Mexico. Since all 18 guest rooms are unique and they each have distinctions of thier own, we find guests differing in thier vote for Pueblo Bonito's "favorite room" as well as "favorite location".

A huge benefit for Santa Fe travelers is our proximity to so many wonderful Santa Fe attractions. As you touched on, Pueblo Bonito Inn is just a short walk away from the Plaza, the Railroad District, and Guadalupe Street. And we're always here to offer suggestions on sights to see, restaurants to enjoy and how to map our your time more efficiently to maximize your overall New Mexico vacation experience.

Thanks again for your kind words and "vote" for "the place to stay in Santa Fe!". We'd love to host you again the next time you're in town!

Amy Behm

For history buffs, this place has a lot of value. The fireplace in the bedroom makes for a highly romantic setting. The inn keepers are thorough and friendly. We've stayed twice now, and will stay again.

We really appreciate the recommendation, Rafael! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review. You're absolutely right—our rooms do have plenty of history within their walls.

Over the past 150 years we were originally the estate of Federal Judge Robert McFie, complete with stables, servant quarters and Indian Orno—which are all still part of the b&b. Pueblo Bonito housed many a "starving artist," even as well-known as Hilile Heller, when we converted to apartments in 1930.

Even our physical street location—138 W Manhattan—is named for the "Manhattan Project." Pueblo Bonito housed several US military and government officials, one of which was Robert Oppenheimer's personal body guard in our San Ildefonso suite, and in our Tewa suite right next door, a CIA official. A short stroll from our inn, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg sold plans to the Russians on how to build a nuclear bomb, one of the largest espionage cases in US history.

We're always happy to share the history of the area with you during a visit, as well. Thanks again for your compliments. Hope to host you for a third time soon!

Best,
Amy Behm

I live an hour and a half away so Santa Fe is a wonderful getaway retreat for me. Pueblo Bonito and staff made it wonderful and a place I will return to. I love visiting Santa Fe in the winter,as the prices are more reasonable and the parking/traffic much less annoying!
I would suggest "Tune-Up", a small restaurant with a limited menu and space, but worth the effort.
I'm not a tortilla fan, but I had the best breakfast burrito to date with homemade tortillas. Check it out by googling "best breakfast in Santa Fe. I have a GPS and had no trouble finding it....they also have off street parking.

We stayed here for 2 nights and really enjoyed our time here. The room was nicely decorated with personal touches. The location was perfect, a short walk to the plaza and the surrounding attractions. We arrived on a Sunday evening and the desk person advised us where to have dinner (Rio Chama) which turned out to be a great place. The Pueblo Bonito breakfasts are a very nice addition to the lodging with a very full assortment of goodies. There is also a lovely gift shop. You really feel the Southwestern ambience here.

Room Tip: We had a regular room but for only $20 more we could have had a suite which I would choose next time...

We're delighted to share the unique charm of old Santa Fe and Pueblo Bonito Inn with you! Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. Our rooms are each modeled after distinct Native American cultures; it's character you won't find anywhere else. The personal touches mentioned have been acquired after serving guests for 28 years so as to make folks stay feel more at home. Little things like adequate reading lights on both sides of the bed with kleenex are always appreciated!

We pride ourselves on our location, too—just a short walk away from everything visitors could want to explore. Of course, a day of adventure is even better with a hearty breakfast. And we offer that, with fresh coffee, tea and juice, a wide variety of freshly cut fruits, oatmeal, granola, boiled eggs, lowfat yogurts, pastries, coffee cake, baked breads, bagels, french toast, waffles, raspberry preserves and smears.

We give great advice to guests on places to dine, sights to see, and things to experience. We don't hesitate to share "inside" information with our guests as Amy & Herb and staff have lived in and around the Santa Fe area for a combined total of 85 years! It shows in our knowledge of the area and our sincerity in caring for our guests.

Thank you again for your review. We'd love to host you again anytime you're in the area!

Amy Behm

We found this B & B online and were impressed by the photos of the thick abobe walls and also by the positive reviews. The reviews were very accurate. We loved the place. Just wish we could have stayed longer. While there we visited the Georgia O'Keefe museum (found out after the fact that it is within walking distance) and two micro breweries nearby: Blue Corn Cafe and Marbles. Both are on the 2nd story with views of the town and good handcrafted beer
Back at the Puebo Bonito we cozied up in front of the fire and enjoyed the historic character of the inn. And in the morning, we had a lovely breakfast. The hosts, Amy and Herb, were super friendly and informative. Would love to stay there again.

We'd love to have you again! Thanks so much for your testimony. It's great to hear how our photos and reviews persuaded your choice to choose us and truly gratifying to know how much you enjoyed your stay and that we met all your expectations!

Our adobe walls, which are one and a half feet thick, add to the authentic feel of historic Santa Fe. And they do a good job of keeping things quiet! Of course, a cozy evening by the fire certainly helps, as well.

One of the great things about Pueblo Bonito Inn is how close we are to a number of wonderful attractions! The Georgia O'Keefe Museum is just one of a handful of wonderful sights within walking distance. I'm glad you got to enjoy some microbreweries with some tasty beer, too. Those breweries sure know what they're doing!

We really do appreciate your testimony to share with others. We know folks come to relax and have a great time which is important to us. We'll do everything we can to ensure you have a peaceful, memorable stay. Thanks again, and hope to see you soon!

Sincerely,
Amy

If you're visiting Santa Fe to soak up the historical culture of the old South-West, why not amplify the ambiance by staying in a 150 year old adobe room with exposed beams and SW furnishings? During our winter stay at the Pueblo Bonito our room, the Taos, included a large living-sleeping room, a quaint kitchen, ample closet area and a utilitarian bath with shower. A flat screen TV, WiFi, small refrigerator, microwave and in-room coffee complete the amenities. Returning from dinner and a day's walk through downtown we turned the heat down, lit the kiva fireplace and shared a very romantic setting. The kiva fireplace is replenished every night in the winter season.

The B&B's rooms surround a large, free, private inner parking area. A typical B&B breakfast is provided in the main building next to a common area. The owners Herb and Amy and their long-time assistant Stressla are attentive and very helpful in giving guidance with their 27 years of experience with this B&B.

We chose this B&B from the website which is accurate and very descriptive and were well pleased with our choice. The location is a block away from the capitol building, and about three blocks to the main downtown district. Trivia: Folks associated with the Manhattan project stayed here years ago.

Room Tip: Look on the website for descriptions of each room.

Thank you so much for this wonderful review! I'm delighted to hear our website was informative and helped you make your decision, and even more thrilled you had such a wonderful stay.

The Taos Indians have lived in New Mexico for over 800 years. We try to honor their culture and heritage with the artifacts and furniture that adorn the Taos room. The kiva fireplace is just one of many niceties you'll find, and I'm happy you were able to stay warm and share a romantic evening together.

A hearty breakfast awaits you every day to make sure you have the fuel to explore all that historic Santa Fe has to offer. And since we're so close to a number of attractions, including the ones you listed, you'll have plenty of energy! Our free parking is another perk, as you can leave your car with us as you enjoy the walking paths into downtown. Of course, Herb, Stressla and I are always here to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have.

Thanks again for your review. I really appreciate you taking the time to talk about your experience, as do potential guests of Pueblo Bonito Inn. You're more than welcome back anytime!

Best,
Amy
