“Best location in town!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

My husband and I just returned from a 4 night stay in Santa Fe. We loved The Old Santa Fe Inn and will definitely stay there on our next trip. It is the best location for downtown activities and is within walking distance to all of the major shopping destinations. The rooms are small but have all of the amenities of an upscale hotel. I would truly call this a boutique hotel and the staff are wonderful. Looking forward to our trip!!

Great stay! The staff were friendly and attentive. Room was small and bathroom was tiny. Bathroom was slightly dated. Those would be my only 2 complaints. The room was very nice and the fireplace was a special touch. Breakfast was very relaxing. Big selection of tea and coffee. We are looking forward to staying again, hopefully sooner than later.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a room with a fireplace

This was my first stay, but it is the perfect place to stay--especially during the legislative session. The Roundhouse and Public Education building are just a short walk away, so I didn't have to worry about finding parking. I also walked to an event at the convention center--the walk was well lit and I felt safe making the trip by myself.
The wifi gave me some trouble also.

This is our
4th stay in as many years. The hotel is close to the plaza and numerous restaurants. Staff is tops; breakfast is tasty. Afternoon cookies are a treat and parking is right out front. Alas on this trip I'm traveling with a WIFI dependant tablet and in # 14 the signal is spotty to very weak to nonexistant. That said, if you can connect with a cable you'll be just fine.; just don'r expect to connect with your phone or IPad.

Most importantly, thank you for your repeated patronage of our Inn. And thank you for pointing out the weakness of the wireless signal in your room. This past year, we spent a significant amount trying to make our wireless Internet system as fast and as flawless as possible, and I am going to check our front desk log to see if you mentioned this to us during your stay, and find out what we did to address it. In any event, we will seek out the problem with the signal in this area and fix it. Thanks again for choosing us as your home in Santa Fe. John Smallwood

We stayed at the Old Santa Fe Inn on February 18 and 19 2013. This hotel is great. We asked for the standard queen room which was very economical compared to other places. We knew the room would be smaller, and that was just fine with us because the price was right. We liked this hotel because a) the breakfast buffet which was included was really great with eggs, bacon, sausage and the like; b) the breakfast room was a good size, c) the bed was comfortable, d) the room was tastefully decorated with wood shutters, armoir, and dresser, e) the location was near many restaurants and shops, f) the courtyard was a great place to park, g) the staff was really friendly and suggested great places to eat, and h) most importantly the place was clean; and with what looked like newer carpet in the hallways too. Thanks to the Old Santa Fe Inn for a great stay.

This is the second year in a row that we stayed here. My husband, son, and I love it here. We are never disappointed. We splurged this time and stayed in a deluxe suite. It was lovely. The kiva fireplace was nice and lights up quickly with a push of the switch. My husband put the spacious work desk area to use, and the jetted tub was nice for soothing sore muscles after skiing. The sofa bed was quite comfortable, because it is part mattress and part inflatable. Our son enjoyed the fun of inflating it every night.

I can not say enough good things about Danny,who worked the afternoon/evening shift at the reception desk. He was always cheerful and welcoming. Throughout our 3 night stay here, he was always EXCEPTIONALLY helpful, from restaurant recommendations to late night assistance with our room, etc. The afternoon cookies were always delicious! It is people like Danny that are the reason why we keep coming back here.

The location is excellent, in the heart of downtown Santa Fe, and cozy rooms make you feel at home. We always look forward to the breakfast burrito bar with the homemade salsa. My husband enjoys the always available Starbucks coffee in the lobby.

The Inn also gives discounts for returning customers.

Stayed for 4 nights in the beginning of February. This is my 3rd stay at the Inn. As usual, the Inn provides a cozy and relaxed place to stay for value oriented travellers. The staff at the reception is accommodating and very professional, nothing is a bother. The queen room with kiva fireplace was a bit small but still had enough space to spread out comfortably. The bed was very comfortable. The shower had more than enough water pressure, and you have a jetted tub if you like that. Each room has a fridge and a microwave, and a flat screen TV. The breakfast offers plenty to choose from: burrito bar, DIY waffles, fruits, yogurt, cereals, several kinds of artisanal breads, juices, etc. It is served in a wonderful dining room, sunlit and cozy with woodburning fireplace. I loved lingering in there after finishing breakfast, just to take in the ambiance. There is also a small fitness room and a business center, as well as complimentary computer terminals and WiFi. What else do you need?

And finally, the location is great, easy short walk to everywhere in town.

My only minor complaint was the heater, which as other travellers mentioned, is a bit noisy, but wouldn't interfere with your sleep.

While this is not a luxury retreat, it is a wonderful and beautifully decorated place, where you will be treated like a family. Strongly recommend it and I personally will be back when I visit Santa Fe again.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the courtyard and having eastern or southern exosure, these are sunny either in...
