“...GREAT PLACE>>>....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2010

..had read the reviews and it was a toss up, but I had been to Santa Fe before, and I had stopped in at this hotel to take a look.

I was very impressed! I had points from Choice, so the hotel was free for the weekend, and everything went smooth as silk! The check in procedure was quick and done with a smile. The room was very nice - clean - everything in its place.

The grand kids loved the indoor pool and spa... It was heated, and very nice so there was no problem just walking right in. It was Memorial Day weekend, so it was crowded... But it was nice!!!!!

The breakfast was great. Lots to choose from - no bagels though but that's just my pet peeve.

Can't stay enough about the staff.. Wonderful - polite and very helpful. A kudos for hiring a brother / sister team!!!!

had a wonderful time here, and I highly recommend it for anyone going to Sata Fe for a long weekend or just plain spending the night!!!

I have stayed at the Econo Lodge several times now when stopping in Santa Fe to dine and shop and site see galleries. It is a great deal - affordable, clean, good breakfast, good location to all - much better than many highert priced hotels in the immediate area with classier names. Check it out - I will return again and again for sure. Pool and hot tub we never got to use.

When the manager is not present the staff are wonderful - manager shows up and they act cowed.
Have stayed here multiple times (price is right, breakfast is fast/free). Sometimes it is comfortable, clean and quiet, sometimes not.
WiFi is iffy - great in the lobby, sometimes works in the rooms, sometimes not.
Pool/hot tub have always been clean and comfortable

One of the inexpensive and decent hotels found in this area. No frills but the room was clean. Breakfast was okay...good for free.

See attached photos. Even though the location appears good, you don't want to stay here. This was a filthy, well-worn motel with massive visible stains on the carpet and most pieces of furniture. The bathroom wallpaper was peeling and carpet was frayed. We have stayed in other Econo lodges and they have been palaces, compared to this place. We didn't want to touch anything in the room (slept fully clothed hovering on the bed, no pillows nor sheets), and barely wanted our dogs to touch anything. We sincerely regretted making reservations at this place and didn't want to even LOOK at the pool. The free breakfast in the morning was decent, but we left as soon as we could.

I know it is a budget hotel. We have stayed at many budget hotels. This by far is the worst one. The rooms were depressing and dirty. The decor was old, The wallpaper was peeling. It was very difficult to spend time in the room. Our friends stayed in a smoking room, as they always do. The smell coming from that room was more than just smoke. It had an odor which we could not identify. We were quite worried about our stay at another Econ Lodge(Pueblo Colorado) and we almost cancelled. But when we arrived in Pueblo, we were relieved to find the standards 100 times better than the hotel in Santa Fe. This Econo Lodge needs a lot of improving!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First off, keep in mind that this is a BUDGET HOTEL. Don't be like so many other reviewers and review these budget hotels from a luxury hotel perspective.

We were reasonably happy with the accomodations: Decent bed, clean, good TV reception, pool, hottub. We had trouble getting good wireless internet reception in our room. The main problem we had is that there were two large groups of jr. and high school kids staying there on the night we did. Had we known this (we booked online...lesson learned: will call next time), we would never have stayed here. They were LOUD...their parents/guardians/teachers evidently never taught them basic travel manners: when you are a guest ANYWHERE, you don't run down the hallways, let the doors slam, talk loudly, pound on doors, etc.

We didn't try the standard budget breakfast (waffles, cereal) because it was overrun with the kids for about 2 hours, so we gave up and went to the Pantry Restaurant 2.75 mi. up Cerrillos Rd, and were VERY glad we did.

So, lesson learned: Budget people stay in budget hotels. Budget people are often loud and obnoxious. Call and make sure no groups will be staying at any budget hotels under consideration.

Stayed January 2008
