“Fabulous Santa Fe Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I stayed here 5 nights last month and was very happy with everything. They are set up as a courtyard, so you can park right in front of your private entrance, and it is a short walk to the lobby and breakfast room. Their breakfast was not only delicious but abundant, with eggs, bacon, sausage, burritos, fresh salsa, homefries, waffles, toast, cereal, juices and all you could eat, so I did not have to eat again until dinner. My room was warm, well decorated and very, very clean. I was so happy I chose this wonderful inn for my stay. Oh, and only 2 blocks from the Plaza, so a great location!

Room Tip: Just ask for AAA rate, all rooms are good.

This was definitely one of the highlights. This place is full of atmosphere and matches the "Santa Fe" feeling perfectly. It has the perfect size and made us feel at home. The breakfast was great, unfortunately we just found out on the last day ;) Our room was a bit cramped for the 3 of us. All in all definitely recommended, we will come back.

This hotel is in an excellent location and a low-key place to stay just south of the Plaza area. Great walking distance spot. Rooms are small but OK. Old but OK. Beds are comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful. Big down-side is the very mediocre breakfast offering of the same steam table scrambled eggs day after day. Only the chili makes them edible. If the hotel were to offer an egg cooking station, charge $5 more per person per night, it would be a super value.

Stayed here in Oct '12. Loved the kiva fireplace, jetted tub etc. Best feature was the proximity to the Plaza and all the haute art galleries without the prices of a Four Seasons! I also liked the motel like layout so driving in and out was a breeze without any parking hassles. Staff was very responsive and free breakfast was delicious in a well appointed dining room

Room Tip: Get a room with the kiva fireplace-- definitely breaks the mould of the cookie cutter room!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights beginning with October 11, 2012. We stayed in Room 25, a junior suite with King size bed. Loved it! We had a gas powered Kiva fireplace in our sitting area, jetted tub in the bathroom, comfy bathrobes, a refrig, coffee maker, and mircowave, great bed and pillows, plenty to chose from for breakfast, and the inn is located close to everything--the square is just a short walk away--and eating establishments were just a couple of blocks away. Leave the car out in front of your room and enjoy Santa Fe on foot. Our total bill with tax for two nights was $495.55.

Spent 2 nights in September for our first stay at this facility. Totally pleasant experience with helpful, friendly front desk person, good breakfast and excellent location; easy walk to plaza and there are excellent restaurants closer than plaza. Room was comfortable and very clean as was bathroom. Bed comfortable and room quiet. Will stay again.

This is a very nice, well-staffed, and convenient inn (or, more accurately, motor lodge). Plus the ample breakfast each morning in the attractive dining room is complimentary. It's all located just a couple of blocks from the historic downtown and plaza, an easy and pleasant walk. We had a junior queen suite, one of only a few rooms on the second level as most of the property is single story. From other comments I gather that rooms on the ground level can be a little noisy as they open just off the parking area. The suite was roomy and comfortable and like the rest of the property (that I saw) very tastefully decorated in muted colors and period prints--not the overwrought southwestern style that some places in the area can fall prey to. One caution, however. Reservations for the property are apparently handled by a third party. After making my initial reservation by phone, I decided to upgrade to a king suite. I called back and received verbal confirmation followed by an email which I printed out and presented at the front desk at check-in. Despite the evidence in hand, the clerk had only my original request for a queen suite, and since the inn was full there was nothing he could do besides apologize. As it turned out the queen suite was perfectly fine, and I ended up saving a few bucks. We had a great time, and I would return. Just watch those reservations.

Room Tip: Second floor suites are probably quieter than ground level rooms.
