What a great place. More than affordable. The owners and staff are FANTASTIC...welcoming, helpful, interesting...as one patron said...everyone becomes friends in this place. The rooms were nicely decorated, spacious, immaculate and had everything and more that we needed....hot showers, microwave, fridge, really comfy beds, TV...??? anything else???

Close to downtown...15 minute drive...close to amazing restaurants, right beside a wonderful store (bring a truck) called Jackalope.

Great continental breakfast.
A perfect spot for us and we have been travelling for 10 months, so that is saying something.

Room Tip: They are probably all really nice.

Not for everyone but definitely for us. This motel brought back the best of travelling to me. No frills. Simple clean room and basic breakfast. Why pay more when what you want is room and bed. We were hardly there. Do not let the location fool you. This is quiet clean and retro place to stay with great ownere.

We just finished the third conversation regarding our now booked stay at this cool site via & with "Ted", he’s staff; and wow. We can't wait to check in considering the insight… Ted (now a friend) was so helpful it took you back to those days of genuine customer care. Now long ago forgotten by the profit singularly only miserly bigger franchises. For real, for real, get this, well ;;; they called us back just to be sure all was correct. We felt so good about this we’ve booked additional days. Check out the cool theme rooms and super unreal pricing. Ted also suggested the “Cowgirls” restaurant & wow what a menu to be had… My wifie is from Tx and read the black ink right off the menu… ha ha

This is our third stay at the Silver Saddle (Feb 17-20). Overall, we experienced the same excellent service consistent with our two other previous stays. You’ll find this “budget” motel to be uncommonly rare, and packed with values. My impression is that Dawn, Miguel, Ted and owner Penny’s idea of hospitality is akin to treating guests more as clients, especially for those actively seeking assistance or advice about sightseeing, dining, and shopping. Their knowledge, extra touches to comfort, and genuine interest for helping you get the most out of your stay is indeed rare.
Since at least summer 2009, the Saddle has continued its various room upgrades, the latest being upgrading to wide screen TVs. Overall, rooms are bright and very comfortable. In the past, Dawn has given us naproxene for headaches, great tips on affordable New Mexican-style dining (Maria’s, Pantry, The Shed), along with affordable shopping tips, hiking & biking trail guides (Dale Ball trails) and tips on many points of interest too numerous to mention. There’s a very handy reference library in the main office containing all kinds of outdoor guides, books, maps and magazines focusing on Santa Fe and other destination locations in New Mexico. It’s a great source for trip ideas. Shopping for southwestern-style décor is as quick as a walk across the parking lot to Jacalope, a good starting place for gift shopping.
For the thrifty, bus route 2 offers stops right at the motel, where a 20 minute bus ride takes you to downtown central, within a ten minute walking distance to everything--the plaza, governor’s palace and government offices, art galleries, restaurants, shops and more. Bring your questions or trip ideas over to the main office during the freebee continental breakfast (7:30-10A) and take advantage of their tips and assistance.

Room Tip: Check website for room rates but CALL TO RESERVE

Just got home from our one night spent in Santa Fe, one adult and 3 kids. After a busy day in Santa Fe, it was nice to be able to park right in front of our room and unload everything. The room was a bit small for 4, especially the bathrooms, but upon first opening the door, we appreciated that it smelled and appeared very clean. The pet fee was only $10 a night, much more reasonable than most places in Santa Fe. The sheets were clean and very soft, and the beds were firm, but comfortable. I brought extra pillows because I'm a pillow hog and I was very cozy. I liked the window in the bathroom that could be opened to keep fresh air in there, especially after showers. There are bars on the windows which gives a sense of safety and the view was a large grassy fenced in empty lot. But the bathroom could have used a plunger under the sink because the toilet was unable to keep up with demand. ahem.
My youngest child watched some children's programming on TV, while my teenagers and I did our thing on our laptops. IT was great to have Wi-Fi, except my teens had issues with being disconnected from their gaming sites, while I had no problems, except maybe a little slowness. Being next to Jackalope was kind of neat, although in the winter they don't open until after 10am, and we were already in downtown Santa Fe be then, so it really didn't benefit us.
Breakfast was adequate, although it would have been nice if they had orange juice, because trying to eat bagels, croissants and oatmeal with only coffee to drink was rather difficult.
The price was right though, the staff were friendly, the character of the Silver Saddle, including the themed rooms, was fun and unique and we would definetely come back again.
