This motel is an oldie, but goodie. We have stayed there many times and have always found it quiet and comfortable. It is in easy walking distance from the historic Santa Fe Plaza, which adds to its attraction. If there are any downsides to the place, it would be that the televisions are of the near obsolete CRT variety, small screen and snowy….ugh. Too, for the life of me, I will never understand the charge for parking. But, it was explained to me that ALL hotels near the plaza do the same. Does that strike anyone as strange? You invite a guest to your establishment for a pleasant stay….AND CHARGE THEM FOR PARKING! But, friends, that is Santa Fe, the City Different…..indifferent?
