“Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Typically, when in Santa Fe we stay at higher end hotels near the plaza. But this time we were just passing through and needed a hotel near the interstate and nothing quite so fancy.

This hotel fit the bill perfectly and very much exceeded our expectations. It is a couple of minutes off the interstate and very near a major shopping area with plenty of chain restaurants nearby.

Our room was very nicely sized and very well maintained. Everything was clean and neat. Sleep quality was excellent with a nice mattress and no noises to wake us.

Service was very good and the front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful.

The breakfast buffet was adequate...nothing fancy. Of note is the decor in the breakfast area: The tables and woodwork are very cool Santa Fe-ish.

The price, coupled with the quality, make this a great value hotel.

This hotel is a do-over for us.

It's a good place to stay when visiting Santa Fe. We only stayed overnight but it was clean and well maintained. If I was staying longer I would want a place either closer to the center of town or further out with better views, but for a one night stay it was a good value

Just spent two nights there. Clean and well maintained motel. Fairly large room, smaller bath facilities. Modern large screen TV with many Direct TV channels including some premium channels. Small pool and hot tub were plenty useable. We found the king size bed to be very comfortable and sleep well in a quiet room. Decent breakfast with the usual motel continental breakfast items available including waffles. Location is a 10-15 minute drive from the Plaza. For a rock bottom price, best value we have found in Santa Fe.

Room Tip: We were on the second floor with no elevator so if you find stairs difficult then request a first fl...

What a nice hotel! It's on the right side of main road into Santa Fe. Very attractive entrance with loads of vibrant flowers, plenty of parking. Super nice owners, Amisha & Tapas, who were very accommodating (helped with our luggage, in and out) and kept the breakfast bar filled and clean. We stayed just a single night to meet with relatives for dinner and what a great choice. I chose this hotel based on the previous reviews and they were spot on. We had a very nice, clean 2nd floor room, 2 queens, with an additional alcove with a sofa and extra tables. There were two separate AC/heat units in each area of the room which was marvelous for "white noise" for sleeping (though it was not noisy) and the cooling was great.
Lovely courtyard with a pool and hot tub which we'll try next time.
We've paid more for less in many places and were extremely pleased with this hotel. Great choice, great price for Santa Fe.

Room Tip: Second floor room over-looking the pool area was no problem and afforded lots of light from two wind...

We reserved this hotel based on outstanding reviews on TripAdvisor. The establishment is obviously a budget motel and must be judged as such. The price is very reasonable for a motel in a fairly large state capital. The motel has several positive attributes - the rooms are very clean, the beds are comfortable, the breakfast is basic but quite adequate for most people, the location is good (on a major access road to downtown which is reached in a very short drive) and safe (a busy and well lit commercial district). The manager was very helpful and showed us how to get downtown and park close to the major tourist attractions surrounding the central plaza, including the beautiful churches. Our main complaint is that the hotel corridors and rooms have a pervading disagreeable odor. I think it must come from old carpeting which sorely needs to be replaced. I wonder why hotels don't do away with carpet and use more hygienic options such as tile, hardwood, or some of the new vinyl options that are available on the market.

After we returned from
Moab, we decide to save some $$ for our coming 2 nights. Have to say i was surprised. After we spent good 400$ for 3 nights in moab for a terrible service. This was just heaven for good money.

Great staff, good breakfast, confi room and clean. Every time
Again.

Only bad think there was a little smell in our room but ok, thats something i can deal with.

We pick hotels based largely on budget - and this fits the bill!

It was very clean and well maintained and our room on the first floor was quiet. There was a pool and hot tub that looked inviting but we didn't make it in. It is in walking distance of many shops and restaurants (we went to the Plaza Cafe Southside) They offer a continental breakfast only (no eggs or meats) but our stay was pleasant and we would book here again.
