I've never written a bad review about a place before, but the Garrett Inn has spurred me on to do so. The price is pretty good for Santa Fe--$119--but you're charged an extra $8 for parking. Not that that's so much, but it's a motel with a large parking lot, and I find it offensive to be charged extra to park in their lot. The motel is non-smoking, but my room reeks of decades of cigarette smoke. So much so that it's nauseating. There were a lot a food crumbs under the table in the room. There were no bath towels or bath mat. The people who work here are nice, and brought me towels and bath mat when I asked. The towels are the cheapest imaginable, and have mascara stains on them. Rooms are small and old and shoddy. The location is very good, and there's a spectacular little bisto (351 Bistro) next door. But I sooooo regret staying here and will never stay here again.

We had stayed at this Inn about 10 years ago and it was pretty run down then but now it is worse, much worse. The bathrooms were filthy needing major updating, carpets were dirty, the window A/C barely kept the room cool. Restaurant was not open all the time. This place is a DISASTER.
Rate was 143.10 + Parking $8.00 + Gross receipt tax $11.72 + Lodgers tax $10.02 = $172.84 a night. You would be better off putting another $30 toward a better room.

YOU FOOLED ME TWICE, SHAME ON ME.

Some friends were staying at the Loretto (across the street) at twice the price. Our rooms were nice, clean, and comfortable. It was close to everything. The bed was a little squeaky but very comfortable. We parked when we got there and didn't drive until we left town.

Even during Indian Market you can find a motel for less than $200 a night in downtown Santa Fe, really. At between $149 and $169 per night, Garrett's Desert Inn is a bargain during Indian Market (much less off season).

This downtown, spacious, motel is as well located as they come. Just a block or two from both The Plaza and Canyon Road, you won't have to worry about renting a car for your visit.

We loved the pool and the adjacent restaurant, Santa Fe Bite
For more... see my article on Examiner.com. Just Google my name and the motel name.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with afternoon shade during the summer.

Stayed here for Indian Market in August. Great location. A little dated, but location and price make up for any inconveniences (like not-so-great AC.) The pool is a wonderful respite from the mid-day heat and fatigue from shopping. Close enough to the Plaza to go back to the room for a swim or a nap and then go back out for more shopping.The restaurant that's attached to the hotel is "The Bite." Has a wonderful breakfast and I hear it has one of the best Green Chili Cheeseburgers in town.

Room Tip: avoid the rooms on the west that get the afternoon sun.
