“I LOVE THE VILLAS DE SANTA FE!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

This was our second trip here and I can't say enough good things about this hotel. It has a FULLY EQUIPPED kicthen and makes it so easy to enjoy a glass of wine, cook, snack and just fully enjoy yourself. Everything in the room is nice from the bathroom to the fold out couch. The hot tub is huge and they offer free shuttle service to the plaza! Awesome hotel.

Room Tip: Building 2 is closer to the bigger hot tub!! :)

We used a Groupon offer and stayed at the Villas de Santa Fe last weekend. Great value for the price. We were in building 2 on the first floor. The room was really clean and the appliances/fixtures were all very new (the coffee maker in particular was nicer than my coffee maker at home). Staff in the lobby were extremely customer service oriented - so nice when we checked in and very helpful when we made other inquiries. There is a game room with board games and a pool table off of the lobby (which my son LOVED) and also free coffee, tea, hot chocolate and computer access in the lobby. The DVD player in our room did not initially work (had been wired incorrectly to the TV) but a maintenance technician arrived ASAP to fix it and he was very pleasant and helpful.

We walked to the plaza with our 7 year old and the walk was quick and easy. Apparently we could have used the hotel's free shuttle but we didn't try to do that. Free parking at the hotel (as compared to the plaza) and easy access all over Santa Fe from this location. There is a Sprouts grocery store just up the block so stocking the room with a few groceries was also quick and easy.

On the down side, the walls are really thin so you can hear all of the traffic coming/going in the hallway. The water sounds (showers, toilets) were also really loud from the room upstairs. The windows are thin as well so we kept the heat on all weekend to keep the room warm - if you stood near the windows or doors you could really feel the draft.

Overall a pleasant stay and there is no way I could beat it for the price.

Room Tip: Higher floors might have had less foot traffic and water noise

Not impressive when you get there or walk to your unit, but once there, very nice. They need someone to check the plumbing fixtures--they were loose! It is within walking distance of the plaza, which was nice. Had it been warmer, the pools would have been small, but nice. Really think they should have complimentary wifi! There were papers to be bought. We were charged the $1, even though it was a day old.

Room Tip: 'guess we should have asked for Building 2!

We stayed in building 2. It was immaculate. That was the first thing I noticed. The rooms were newly renovated and nicely decorated. The little kitchen was great.
The staff extremely helpful. Shuttle very helpful. My guys loved the pool and hot tubs. I like the little gym.
Plus is the property is close to down town yet affordable.

Laundry room nice!
Game room good.
Would highly recommend!

My wife and I stayed at the Villas for three days. The room in Building 2 was spacious and clean. The buildings seem to be well maintained. The first morning we had a problem with a faucet. Within minutes, a maintain e person was in our room and the faucet was fixed. We found all the staff to be courteous, friendly and very helpful.
The location was ideal. The Villas are a short walk from the Plaza. Our stay was in January and temps in the morning were single digits so we didn't do too much walking.
We travel to Santeria Fe often as we have good friends there. We will try to stay here again.
