We stayed three nights in early June and were very pleased with our experience. The office staff was exceptionally helpful and we wish to thank Leslie, Holden and Lyn Marie for their restaurant suggestions and other advice. The location can't be topped and we would definitely stay here again on future trips to Santa Fe.

This motel is o.k. and provided me with a central location to explore Santa Fe. The room are somewhat dated but worked well for me- i could park my bike right outside my room door. It was quiet and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The price is good and you get what you pay for. They have a pool for cooling off after a long day of walking around town.

Room Tip: Eat at The Shed for best dinner in town and Aztec 317 for great breakfast/ lunch.

First of all I arrived a night early and the hotel I had reservations didn't have rooms for the night i stayed. First of all the place is real average, but its clean. I gave it a very good for a friendly staff. It is a little outdated. You have to take into account it's affordability. I could see this being a great place for a family. Also it looked like they do concerts there. Would have been neat to see! Older, but clean and close to a lot of the sights. Friendly Housekeeper was really sweet dropped my bag and was quickly helped to gather up my clothes, and junk. Beds were pretty comfortable.

We have stayed at Garrett's several times - it's a few blocks to the plaza - I do agree with other reviewers that they definitely need to do some renovation - this time it really seemed run down - yes the price is right and you can't beat the location but the bathrooms need updating - tattered pool chair pads - towels so rough I thought I was going to get a paper cut from them - the check in person was very nice but the young woman the next day seemed bothered when I was asking for directions - I might stay there again if I hear they have fixed up the place - so if you want a cheap, close place to the plaza this is it - otherwise pay a little more for some luxury

Room Tip: Ask for something in the back - second floor if possible

We stayed here as we were traveling with friends and just trying to go with the flow. The check in was fine, nice young man - answered all our questions. The room was not nice, everything is completely outdated and down right gross. The bathroom, I believe, is original - very old. I didn't even like to shower here. Luckily I brought my own amenities so I didn't have to use whatever it was they provide as soap.
The exterior of the building looks like it's going to crumble at any moment.
The pool was nice for the kids but they need to spend a couple hundred dollars and get new chair pads.
The only thing good about this place is the location.
We are generally resort people, so used to big hotels with lots of amenities. I will not return here.

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel. Spend the extra money.
