We found this an ideal base for our couple of days in Santa Fe. It is mid-way between the RailRunner terminus and the Plaza, easily walkable to each, and to other highlights like the Canyon Road. We had a twin room just around the corner from the main entrance but did not suffer from any noise disturbance. The room was single storey with its own entrance direct on to the inner courtyard, well appointed and comfortable, and welcome chocolates were a nice touch. Breakfast was the best of our two week tour of the USA, plentiful and varied. I'd return without hesitation.

Stayed only 2 nights. But would definitely stay here again! Staff was friendly, room was clean and the beds are the most comfortable I have stayed in at any hotel. The room was, however a little smaller than i thought it would be. Fireplace in the room was cool. Breakfast was large! Breakfast burrito bar along with normal cereal, toast, yogurt, fruit etc. We liked the location. It was a close walk to the plaza.

I have stayed here 3-4 times over the years. You have "free" parking within only a couple of blocks from the plaza. The airport shuttle will pick up or drop you off here if you're coming in from Albuquerque. They have a wonderful breakfast, and in the afternoon offer snacks such as fresh guacamole and salsa as well as cookies. Someone is at the front desk 24/7 and you can always go into the lobby, which is like a living room, and peruse newspapers, books, while helping yourself to hot chocolate, coffee and tea.
The rooms are each decorated in a Southwestern theme and they had recently added big flat screen tvs. Telephone use is free as is Wi-Fi.

Room Tip: No restaurant but breakfast and snacks offered later in the day. A workout room and computer/printe...

We are so glad that we selected this Inn for our four day stay in Santa Fe. Helpful Tripadvisor reviews came through for us once again. The free parking and close proximity of this Inn to town made it a pleasure to walk to the various shops, restaurants, museums and other sights located there. Compared to other places in the area, this offered us everything we needed at a much more reasonable price. Included in the cost was an outstanding buffet breakfast served in a delightful dining area. The ladies who attended to the guests could not have been more friendly or helpful. One of our favorites even hugged me on our last morning. The other perk was the afternoon snack in the lobby area which included a choice of delicious homemade cookies, salsa, guacamole and tortilla chips. Coffee, tea and a cold beverage were also available. We tended to enjoy our snack in the outdoor patio just off the dining room.
The staff at the desk were extremely courteous and helpful. On our second day, we decided to stay all four days in Santa Fe and not travel to Taos. They not only managed to find a Junior Suite for us for that third day but had it ready for us to move into right after breakfast. Since we liked it better than the Deluxe Suite we had booked, they arranged for us to keep it the fourth day as well. The only disappointment in our entire stay was that the Deluxe Suite initially assigned to us had been in the front of the building near the road. Even though the road was pretty quiet and the rooms large, it lacked the brightness and cheeriness of the Junior Suite which was in a better location. Both rooms, however, were spacious and well decorated with comfortable beds and cozy gas-burning Kiva fireplaces.
Places we enjoyed visiting beyond Albuquerque and Santa Fe were: Acoma Pueblo ( west of Albuquerque), Sandia Peak lookout, the Turquoise Trail, Bandolier National Monument and El Rancho de las Golondinas (the “Williamsburg” of NM) which is a half hour drive south of Santa Fe (phone to check on their hours).

Room Tip: Rooms away from the road are better.

Have stayed in Santa Fe several times over the past ten years (mostly at Hotel Santa Fe). This visit, I decided it was time to try something new. No regrets!

Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Nice breakfast. Fair room rate for Santa Fe. The Plaza and Canyon Road are within walking distance of Old Santa Fe Inn.

The inn staff couldn't be more helpful. They gave us wonderful suggestions for local and regional day trips. Amenities including breakfast and afternoon tea and cookies hit the spot. The plaza is a few blocks away from the inn which made getting to museum, shops, dining so convenient. Museum hill and canyon road wasn't far and we'll worth the time.
Our room was very nice, clean and the shower has excellent water pressure.
I would certainly return it the Old Santa Fe inn
