“Best Place to Stay”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

First, let me start by saying the Santa Fe in general is such a quaint town. I am a big city girl from Texas and am used to the hustle and bustle of a big city. It was very refreshing to get away to SF and ski with my family. I spent months researching where to stay and finally decided it would be OSFI because of the raving reviews. There is nothing fancy about this hotel. It's charm lies in the staff, cleanliness and typical southwestern style. I would choose this hotel again and again because of how welcome we felt here. The staff there is super knowledeable and friendly. My favorite staff member is Michael at the front desk. That man is worth his weight in gold. He is an asset to OSFI! You could ask him about anything related to SF and he would have an answer for you or make sure he got one for you right away. If you're on the fence about where to stay, you need to stop looking and book this hotel. We stayed in a junior suite with king sized bed seperated with a door to the living room that had a pull out couch. The pull out mattress was SOOO comfy. I think they use tempurpedic/memory foam matresses. My mom and daughter stayed on the pull out with no complaints whatsoever. There were 2 tvs in our suite which was even better for our daughter who was able to watch her cartoons. ;) Very convenient and close to the plaza. Do yourself a favor and stay here. Michael and the other staff will make you feel right at home.

My husband and I took a last-minute weekend trip to Santa Fe and booked a room with the OSFI after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. This was the first time we had ever been to Santa Fe, and we were extremely happy with our choice! We chose a room with a Kiva fireplace, which was absolutely worth the extra money per night. The hotel was great! We loved the breakfast burrito bar in the mornings, and the Starbucks coffee was a great touch. Our room was everything that we expected - a nice big comfy bed, a desk with chair, flat screen TV, and wonderful fireplace. The bathroom was pretty standard, but had a curtain that could be drawn to separate the vanity from the bedroom so that I could get dressed in the morning without waking up my husband. The hotel is a very short walk to the plaza, but distant enough to have refrain from the noise. We had a great experience here and we would stay again!

Room Tip: Definitely choose a room with a fireplace!

The service and the value of this hotel is exceptional. The small rooms are very small but well equipped with excellent beds. The larger rooms with fireplace are very nice and worth the extra rate. The lobby is very inviting and the daily complimentary breakfast is outstanding. Location couldn't be better to see the sights. Will most definitely stay here again. We booked three rooms for two nights and enjoyed every minute. The complimentary Starbucks coffee and cookies are a daily must.

This was our first trip to Santa Fe and and we boy did we pick a great place to stay, the Old Santa Fe Inn. Wonderful, clean, and a very close, easy walk to everything to see in old Santa Fe. We stayed 3 nights and went up to Taos for 3 nights, but liked it so much that we booked our last night in NM here, instead of Albuquerque, as originally planned. They have a wonderful staff and a morning breakfast that can't be beat. All that being said, having not done much homework on what to see, do, etc., and although we found ALL of the staff to be excellent, we have to give special recognition to Michael, who works the PM shift, for being our welcome wagon, tour guide, and cookie baker. His friendliness, recommendations and suggestions really made a difference in the success of our vacation. Thank YOU, Michael! We generally stay in B&B's but the OSFI looked highly recommended so we took a chance. We loved it! DanO and Cooky

Room Tip: Our last night was a smaller room and just as nice and comfortable. Rooms off the street are quiete...

What a find, a good example of how it can be done in New Mexico. Both the exterior and reception entrance were spotless, with a warm welcome at reception from Michael, and a lovely lobby area with fire. The double room was not large, but classically decorated, lovely bathroom. As I had arrived late evening I needed to get a meal in the centre of Santa Fe quickly, which is approx 10 minutes walk away, and Michael provided a map and recommendations. Superb breakfast the next morning, in a welcoming room. Cannot fault the place, will definitely be going back to Santa Fe and the Old Santa Fe Inn.

Our first contact was with Matt at the reception desk. He greeted us with a smile and found us a fabulous room at a great rate. The room was tastefully decorated and impeccably clean. We loved the kiva gas fireplace. He showed us a map and pointed out places within easy walking distance in old town. He also showed us a place to go to watch evening sunsets. The included breakfasts are wonderful with a "make your own burrito bar". There is fresh coffee/tea available all day long and homemade cookies everyday at 4 pm. Do not judge this hotel from the exterior, but do stop and stay a while.

Room Tip: we loved room #37 -- a junior king suite with a kiva gas fireplace and a double secure entry

We stayed three nights here and my husband said it was the best breakfast of our three week trip to New Mexico. I particularly enjoyed the coffee, tea, hot chocolate and, from 4 pm onwards homemade cookies that were available in the library - it was nice to sit and chill out each afternoon and evening.

The room was lovely, very clean and comfortable and I loved the tiles in the bathroom, staff friendly and helpful and the location is great for visiting Santa Fe - no problems parking you just leave the car and walk.
