We stayed 3 nights at the Don Gaspar Inn in the Aspen Room. Very quiet room with a very comfortable king bed. Has a gas heater in the spacious room. Good night sleep every night! Convenient location a few long blocks from the center of Santa Fe. The staff was very friendly and the weather was grand so we were able to have breakfast on the patio in the courtyard. Breakfast selection included some healthy options, and the special was just okay. Overall, we would stay there again.

Room Tip: The Aspen Room was nice but not exciting but super quiet and would stay there again.

Thank you for your review. It is always helpful to get the guests persepective and it's good to hear that the Aspen room is quiet and you slept well. We're excited to go into the room and see how to make it more 'exciting' even though it is comfortable. The garden and sitting area right outside the room and the extra sofa sleeper with the air mattress topper have been features which guests have enjoyed as well as the warm gas stove in the winter. Again, thank you for your visit and we look forward to seeing you again.

We really enjoyed our stay at Don Gaspar Inn. It's conveniently located a few blocks from the center of Santa Fe and within walking distance of both the plaza, Canyon Road, and most of the other sites. We had a comfy suite with a living room, bedroom, and bathroom. The gardens are beautiful and peaceful, like a little oasis in the desert. The breakfasts were tasty and they gave us very helpful tourism suggestions. As it was between seasons we weren't able to use the heater and it was a bit chilly in the room. Nonetheless we really enjoyed the peace and quiet that this charming little Inn provided.

Thank you for staying with us at the Don Gaspar Inn during your visit to Santa Fe. We are glad to report we have all the fireplaces and gas stoves operating now. It has suddenly become fall and the leaves seem to be turning overnight. This is the time of year that people love to come and drive to the Santa Fe Ski area to ride the chairlift to the top and enjoy the Aspen in their yellow glory. We hope you will visit us again.

We stayed five nights in the Santa Fe suite. It's a lovely inn with a very nice location, away from the congestion and noise of the Plaza, but a 3 minute drive or 15 minute walk from the town center. The staff is very friendly and anxious to help with tourism suggestions, and the breakfasts are very tasty, although perhaps a bit lacking in lighter options. Our suite was well furnished and mostly comfortable. Nonetheless we won't return. The foremost issue was the bed -- the mattress was long overdue for replacement and extremely uncomfortable. Communication with the guests was also spotty. The printed materials in the room state that housekeeping is available until 2pm, but it turns out that when there are few guests, service ends much earlier with no announcement; we therefore missed having the room done several times (although were able to obtain clean towels later on request). There are detailed instructions in the room on how to use the gas fireplace, but we couldn't light it. We later learned that the pilot lights are not turned on until winter, again with no announcement, so if you want assurance of a fire, choose a room with a wood-burning fireplace. All in all, a pleasant property, but enough issues that we were somewhat disappointed.

Thank you so much for your feedback. We appreciate it when guests let us know areas we can improve. We routinely ask every guest when they book their room if they have any special dietary needs and always include fresh fruits, granola, two kinds of juice, artisan breads and jams, a cheese plate with fruits and organic yogurt for everyone as well as a special baked dish at each breakfast. We continue to find new recipes to offer our guests with special requests or requirements. We hope all our guests will let us know if there is something else we can offer to help them meet their needs.
Our beds are all fitted with top of the line Serta mattresses. We also have included 3 inch memory foam mattress toppers. We realize everyone has different preferences in firmness of mattress and have many guests rave about the comfort of the mattresses.
We have some rooms with operating fireplaces and others with gas stoves. Because we are a city at 7,000 feet it is necessary to have standing pilot lights in the gas stoves to keep them burning. We have found that the pilot lights put out so much heat in the summer that it is impractical to have them on. You were here during the first unexpected cool evening of the last weeks of August. Though our staff came over and attempted to light the pilot on short notice, we are sorry that it didn't work and will clarify our signs. We want everyone to feel comfortable in their rooms.
We give every guest a Native American Dream Catcher to put on their door as a 'Do Not Disturb' sign and to take home with them. Housekeeping respects that sign on the door. I am sorry that housekeeping missed you after 12 noon and we didn't get it clarified what the confusion was right away. We've changed our information in the rooms and request guests to let us know if they want housekeeping after 12 noon when they are staying over.
We did appreciate your visit and hope you will consider us again in the future. Thank you for your frank comments, this is what helps us to do a better job.

A really pretty, well located inn, a few minutes walk to plaza. Extremely well educated people, great guidance for all different types of travelers, from outdoorsy, to art oriented. Perfect breakfasts every morning in a sunny courtyard or inside with other interesting guests. We will definitely return many times

Room Tip: Any room is good,

July 2013 marked our eighth annual visit to Santa Fe. Eight years ago, in the middle of our first visit, I said to my wife, “Honey, as long as we stay healthy and solvent, let’s come back every year.”

To be sure, that proposal was motivated by Santa Fe’s many attractions: the International Folk Art Market (fabulous!); the world class opera ; museums and art galleries; many excellent restaurants; and easy access to Taos, Chimayo, and other stunning locations nearby. As a couple of northeastern city types, we delight in the surrounding high desert country:” Look, we’re Out West!” I said as we drove from the airport on our first visit.

All that is true, but it is not an accident that I made my declaration over breakfast at the Don Gaspar Inn, where we were staying, and where we have stayed on each visit since. The Don Gaspar is that rare case of an accommodation that is itself one of the reasons for returning.

The southwest-accented breakfast buffet may inspire you to declarations as enthusiastic as mine. The location is ideal. The inn is just about equidistant – a comfortable walk in either direction – from the Plaza and the Railyard District, two centers of activity in Santa Fe. An equally pleasant walk (Ana will tell you the best way to go) takes you to Canyon Road, which boasts more art galleries par capita, and per square inch, than you’d expect to find in a large city (Take it from a New Yorker).

We have stayed in three different rooms over the years: The Kachina Room (twice), the Colorado Room (once, and my son also stayed there once), and the Olive Room (five times). We like the Olive Room especially for its huge shower: nary a bumped elbow in all our stays. Each is unique, but all are decorated colorfully and tastefully, in the spirit of the region. Each is furnished with a coffee maker, coffee beans, and grinder, as well as cups, glasses, plates, and cutlery, and a microwave.

The property on which the buildings of the inn sit is attractive and serene, with a patio where you might linger over breakfast or settle in for an afternoon break between your morning walk along Canyon Road and your evening at the opera.

Now, about the staff: We love them. Ana has been preparing delicious breakfasts, offering tips to make the most of our stay, and passing on her wit and wisdom as long as we’ve been coming. Two newer arrivals, Gayle, the in-house innkeeper, and Jessie, who shares responsibilities with Ana, are, like Ana, friendly and knowledgeable, and a lot of fun.

Before leaving for home in July, we booked our room for our ninth annual visit. Now, we’ll try to stay healthy and solvent.

Room Tip: An extra-large shower in the Olive Room, but no tub. A hot tub in the Kachina Room. Colorado Room is immediately adjacent to office and breakfast room, and has a porch overlooking the main patio. The other rooms have small patios of their own. All are a good size; the Colorado Room slightly smaller than the other two.
