“best kept santa fe secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Innkeeper Dawn was wonderful, sweet and a wealth of local information. Very clean, safe and fun place to stay with a great breakfast and real coffee. Innkeeper Dawn knows santa fe area very well--can even refer you to her favorite shopping spots--antique, consignment and thrift store shopping. She takes her time with each customer--she has such positve energy it can be seen throughout the inn she keeps--making your trip even more enjoyable. Thank-You !

Room Tip: Excellant value, excellant staff--great place ! Windows open--never need to turn on the ac.

We just loved this little motel. But I do have a weakness for the old motels of my youth. This is it, but with enough upgrades to make it fun. The room was cute and comfortable. Breakfast and wifi was on the house. The small lobby had some kitschy gifts and enough room between it and the patio to have breakfast and be able to visit with fellow travelers. They kept a nice area for smokers and plants and flowers were throughout the property. If you are looking for luxurious downtown accommodations, this is NOT it. If you are looking for inexpensive and off the downtown square, you found it. I happen to think it's a great location. Right next to Jackalope Ranch for all your shopping. And here's the best part, if you're up for the adventure... it's right along the bus line. No hassle with downtown parking, one way streets, and traffic. We would just hop on the bus and voila! We left the driving to them. The bus was full of all types and we had fun just doing that. (Maybe I'm easily entertained.. but what a fun experience.) The staff was friendly, low-key, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend.

O.k.... this is not a first class motel but if cheap is what you want, safe, clean, helpful and nice breakfast spread is what you get. I asked for my boyfriend's senior discount and my disability discount and we got a discount. It is close to old center Santa fe but a car is needed... The staff was great and our room was simple and clean but old, which was totally ok with us.

This place was a great surprise. Inexpensive, clean and the customer service was great. What a lovely little secret. Had a nice little breakfast and a nice patio to eat it on. They had several outdoor places to sit.

We stayed there again over Indian Market weekend (they were able to change our reservation at the last minute!). Our room (#21) was down at the corner, very quiet, large with plenty of storage and seating, small kitchenette area with refrigerator, microwave, etc. and a large bathroom with full tub/shower. Decorated in Southwest/Cowboy with very comfortable beds and flat screen tv. The staff are friendly and knowledgable. We heard many folks say they are regular customers and the reason is a clean, comfortable, well appointed room with breakfast at the best price in Santa Fe. Thanks again - we'll see you next time!

Room Tip: The higher the room number, i.e. #20, the farther it is away from Cerrillos. Although, the inn itsel...

While on a 5 state motorcycle trip, we stayed at The Silver Saddle. What a pleasant & fun place to stay! The owners & the staff were very upbeat & helpful - always patient & pleasant. Our room was clean & spacious. Fun cowboy decor all around. Nice, homey, better than usual continental breakfast. Luscious fresh peaches while we were there...yum. Pretty little courtyard for eating, reading a book, relaxing. Just a fun atmosphere all around. We loved our stay!

Thanks to Tripadvisor, we tried the Silver Saddle in Santa Fe. It is a classic old motor court type motel - impeccably kept, extremely reasonable, pet friendly. The staff were super helpful and friendly, the breakfast (and courtyard) absolutely delightful (at breakfast we visited with a couple of Aussies who purposely looked for "quirky" motels following Route 66, and couldn't have been more pleased), and it is right next door to Jackelope - one of the most unique furniture/craft/shops/Mexican market compexes we've seen. Only negative - window AC was a bit noisy when it kicked in. We LOVED it!
