Silver Saddle Motel
Ranked #7 of 60 Hotels in Santa Fe
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 19, 2013

We stayed in Santa Fe on the last night of our vacation and this cozy and clean motel just topped off a wonderful trip. The staff were very friendly and they offer a nice free breakfast. We stayed in the Billy the Kid Suite. We will for sure come back to Santa Fe and when we do, we already know we will stay here again!

Room Tip: If you are in Santa Fe, this place is a MUST stay!

This place looks quite plain and unassuming from the outside and the rooms are simply decorated in a Southwest theme but they are clean, quiet, the beds are comfy and the shower was great. Very reasonable rates and very pet friendly. Breakfast in the office with the other guests and with Dawn, the manager, was always a treat. Dawn is very warm, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful in planning your stay in Santa Fe. The motel is next to a big complex of stores called Jackelope that has rugs, furniture, blown glass done right there in front of you and souvenirs and home furnishings from all around the world. Don't miss it.

I loved, loved, loved this motel!!!! I stayed here while taking a weekend course at the nearby community college. The room was perfect- clean, beautifully tiled bathroom...no complaints. It was located halfway between the community college and downtown Santa Fe which was perfect. The staff was super friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again. This is definitely the best place to stay for the amazingly low price. What a find!!!!

Stayed one night at the Silver saddle motel and it was great!
Great price
Great location
Great staff
Great decor in rooms and clean.
I would recommend a stay here if you are wanting to visit Santa Fe. As we were to young girls road tripping it was great to have some where that was quiet and felt safe for us to stay.

My wife and I stayed there Dec. 14th and were not impressed. Yes it was clean. It was also blatantly redone by "do it yourselvers." Uneven ceilings, different ceiling textures, walls unprofessionally moved and microwaves and sinks "stuck" in places they might fit. My wife is glutton intolerant so we looked at the breakfast and ate elsewhere. Seemed skimpy, nothing hot and little fruit and cereals. We were also in the closest room to Cerrillos Road and it was real noisy. The shower was nice. We stayed because of all the good reviews. Sorry not impressed.

Vintage motels are presented with many challenges not the least of which are encroaching traffic and renovation creativity. When the motel was built in 1953, Cerrillos Road was the two lane Route 66 and we were way out in the country. We're sorry about the traffic noise but all the budget motels in Santa Fe are on Cerrillos Road and the traffic does quiet down after 9pm. Being on a main thoroughfare of Santa Fe is one of the things that makes us convenient. We are more than happy to move guests to another room should they find the one they're in not acceptable. Our continental breakfast is simple and is meant to get one going in the morning. Your comments are appreciated and we sincerely work very hard to satisfy our guest at our humble motel.

The very good: Tidy, pleasant rooms. Comfortable beds. Wonderful prices. Sweet decor. A decent breakfast in the mornings. Good wifi connection.

What might be improved: Hooks for hanging clothes and towels would do wonders for making most out of space that sometimes is a little too cozy.

The best: The owners and staff are genuinely friendly, informative, and gracious. We were included on a Christmas Eve outing with the owner-family, which was so generous. They take pride in their enterprise and are enthusiastic about making guests' stays pleasant.

Overall experience: Welcoming, charming.

Thanks for the positive comments! We too enjoy the holiday festivities in Santa Fe and sharing with our guests the Christmas Eve Canyon Road farolito walk. Our rooms do indeed need more hooks in the baths so the next time you come they'll be here.
