“Perfect weekend break”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

We stayed at the Don Gaspar this weekend with our 8 year old son. Just a quick visit but the Inn was lovely and we wanted to stay longer. The room was perfect for the three of us and it was great having the fully stocked kitchen available for snacks and drinks. Having coffee beans/grinder and creamer in the room was a neat touch. The bathtub was huge and my son used it for snorkeling (really is that big). The patio had snow on it so we could have a snowball fight. Breakfast was yummy. The room was clean and very pretty. We were within minutes of the plaza as well as lots of restaurants and kid friendly activities. There is also an elementary school next door with a playground open to the public on the weekends - right there so kids can get out and run. PERFECT! The Inn is very quiet at night. There are games and DVDs available to borrow so you aren't bored if you decide to stay in. I highly recommend this as an alternative place for a family to stay while on vacation in Santa Fe. So much nicer than a hotel room.

Thank you for the rave review. It was lots of fun to have you and your son here...next time we hope you can stay longer. It is so nice to be appreciated and we definately appreciate your family. I think the snorkeling in the Jacuzzi tub is the best part of your review. That sounds like a lot of fun. We are glad you found us. Thanks again.

We spent five days in the Santa Fe area and stayed at the Don Gasper Inn. Comfortable rooms, decorated in Southwestern motif. We were so pleased with the kitchenette set up, drinks, snacks always available in the room. Breakfast was always delicious. Staff could not have been any nicer or more accommodating. We will be back.

Great place for a wonderful Santa Fe holiday. Great location with a short walk to the Plaza or Capital. Nice quiet neighborhood with a school playground next door for children. Breakfast provided every morning with everything you could want to eat. Very attentive staff that keeps everything clean and enjoyable. Easy in and out with parking near your room.

We can't wait to go back again.

As Southern Arizonans we had long looked forward to experiencing the fabled beauty of Santa Fe at Christmas. Don Gaspar Inn was the perfect venue. Our south-facing room was comfortable and warm, it also included heated marble flooring in the spacious bath. Decor is the equal of their other two inns which we've greatly enjoyed in the past - Blue Lake Ranch in Hesperus, CO and Casa Blanca Inn in Farmington, NM. A comfortable king bed with down duvet and pillows, thick, thirsty towels, coffee fixings, books and magazines and lovely outdoor Christmas ornaments, lights and farolitos provided comfort and beauty. Delicious complete breakfasts included hot casseroles, eggnog French toast for Christmas morning (yum), fresh fruits, berries, homemade granola, yogurt. Oh and the staff, Patrick, Christina and Ana, made us feel like family members with personal concierges! They handled every request and need superbly. This was an exquisite four-day holiday of our dreams.

Green Features: We gladly endorse and support the Don Gaspar's Inn's complete listing of environmentally friendly practices.

Happy New Year. It was our pleasure to help you have a wonderful Christmas experience. We also thank mother nature for providing a little snow to make the courtyard look especially nice. Please do think of us in the future and thank you so much for taking the time to make your lovely comments about our Inn and service. That was our Christmas present.

Don Gaspar is superbly located and wonderfully relaxing, near the center of Old Santa Fe.

Staff is gracious, friendly and helpful. Breakfasts delicious! It was so nice to arrive to a beautifully appointed a warm room with fireplace on, interesting magazines and a wonderful view outside of
Christmas lights casting colorful hues onto the courtyard.

So much more enjoyable than a hotel room!

We were lucky to even get to Santa Fe 12/8 since the mess in Dallas caused our flight to be cancelled - luckily the airline got us on another flight through Salt Lake City. So we arrived at Don Gaspar Inn very late - we had contacted the inn and let them know and when we arrived we found a welcoming fire lit in the kiva fireplace in the Kachina room. We were delighted with the décor of the room and the wonderful heated marble floor in the bathroom. Amenities that need to be mentioned are the private entrance, coffee beans and grinder to use with the coffee maker (we're early risers so I made coffee every morning), the well stocked armoire with dishes, glasses, utensils and paper towels, the fat thirsty towels provided, and a very comfortable bed. I was a little apprehensive about the bed as I need a firm mattress to avoid backaches but there must have been one under all that down mattress topper as I had no trouble sleeping and no backaches. The few times I woke in the night I enjoyed watching the flames in the fireplace. We brought lots of toiletries and vanity space was limited but the big basket provided under the vanity was a perfect solution- just arranged everything in there.
The location is great - unfortunately we have 2-1/2 good knees between us and the weather was cold so we did not walk to the Plaza but we did walk in stages to Canyon Road and it was very easy to drive anywhere we wanted from the inn(and the excellent parking lot - my husband picked up on the main roads very quickly. Maybe we can return in the summer and enjoy the walks and what must have been lovely gardens and the outdoor seating. The advantage of this time of year is nothing was crowded and we loved the farolitos, even on the walls of the Don Gaspar. Even though there is a school next door, it was very quiet at the inn.
Breakfast was delicious although my one complaint is too many casseroles - Ana was not there for two of the days but on her return we enjoyed her cooking - fabulous waffles, breakfast paninis, and quesadillas. My husband was not happy with one casserole because it had beans in it - I think his mother was frightened by beans while she was carrying him (joke) - he is a bit of a fusspot and it was my bad for not mentioning it to Ana beforehand - I did tell her about the bananas so they didn't appear in anything. But I loved the yoghurt and granola every morning and the good breads and cheeses. Plus I always picked up a fruit and nut trail mix for an afternoon snack and some water.
Ana is a wonderful hostess and always ready to help you out with questions or recommendations.
Maid service was good except for one day not quite up to par - nothing awful, just not quite as much attention to detail (took two days to get more Kleenex and plastic cups - finally resorted to a note left for housekeeping). Very unobtrusive - never actually saw anyone - may have been done by enchantment.
I would definitely highly recommend this inn and hope to come back to it again.

Room Tip: Right off the parking lot with private entrance - very quiet the whole time we were there.

We stayed in the Main House at Don Gaspar Inn with another couple for five nights over Thanksgiving. The Main House is absolutely charming. You will fall in love with the common areas. I will say, however, that when I made the booking I was told there were two king beds, and there are not. It is one king and one queen, so just be aware of that. The house is furnished beautifully with Santa Fe finds all around. We could have stayed another week and not wanted to leave! My only complaint is that by the third day I was a little bored with breakfast. Casserole every morning with only a few other accompaniments did get a little old. It would be nice to see perhaps some bacon/sausage, scrambled eggs, French toast, or even just an egg and cheese casserole. We may have just hit an odd streak, but the casseroles we had were quite unusual and I don't think even had much egg in them. I would also have liked to see more variety in the juices - just orange and cranberry. Tomato and/or grapefruit would have been nice. But there was fresh fruit and yogurt and a bread basket, so I didn't leave hungry - just a little bored. Other than that, though, I'd give the Inn an A+.

Room Tip: The Main House is perfect for two couples or a family.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the Main House and it's Santa Fe and New Mexico style decor. We do try to provide something for everyone for breakfast though we don't always hit the mark with everyone. The types of dishes we provide include New Mexico Tamales, Green Chile Stew, Orange and Chocolate Croissant Bake, Butternut Squash and Kale Egg Casserole, Pumpkin Belgin Waffles or maybe Eggs Florentine. We offer glueten free choices when requested and vegetarian dishes if asked. We are always open to suggestions and will take into consideration your comments and see what we can come up with to make things more interesting. Thank you again.
