“Easy access to highway”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

We stayed here in July 2013 and pretty much got what we expected.

Pro: Room and bathroom were clean. You can bring your dogs (we didn't on this trip.) Easy access to shopping and the highway. price.

Con: Room needs updating. Worn and even frayed carpet. Chipped furniture. Breakfast was a little lower than most La Quinta's but Starbucks is nearby. Biggest drawback...this hotel is a haul from the Plaza...drive, don't even think about walking.

All that said, i would stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the outer loop (as opposed to pool) and you did get some parking lot noise but not bad.

Got to love La Quinta where pets stay FREE. We use to come out here a lot and with no home to stay here yet we would stay at the La Quinta on Cerrillos Rd in Santa Fe. They were always nice to welcome you and your pets. The lobby has a computer you can use to do any business that you have to do or Wifi for your computer in your room to hook up to. Rooms are clean large parking area. You can walk to the mall for shopping a liquor store across the street walking distance.
Location is so convenient to 25 a jump to Albuquerque or a short distance to down town Santa Fe.
We have not stayed here in a while but all of our nights here were great

Room Tip: We stayed in the rooms near the pool area a short distance to get the doggies out in the morning

The hotel is a good road trip location right off the freeway in a major shopping area (Target, Sports Authority type shopping area). There is a Large dog run area with scoop bags in the back for our pups to run around, and it was about a 10 or 15 minutes drive to the Old Town area. The free breakfast is always nice too.

My sister has stayed often with a La Quinta in another state and thought highly of it. She has a La Quinta Returns Elite card, sort of like a frequent flyer program. In Santa Fe, though, she and I were disappointed.

Cons:

The wireless internet went down, and the staff didn't care. I called the Tech Support number listed on the card in the room, but the tech guy's English was so bad that I (who speak a little Spanish) was almost unable to understand him. He immediately started making it sound like the problem was my fault, and demanded the local phone number of the hotel before he would help us; I didn't have that handy; couldn't he look it up if he's a La Quinta support staffer? NO! My sister finally called the 800 number for her Elite card and complained, and THEN the Internet access MIRACULOUSLY became available.

I wanted to have a glass of wine in the room, so I asked the front desk for a glass instead of the plastic foam cups in our room; they said they didn't have any, and they were not willing to do anything to help.

I asked to borrow a corkscrew for the wine, they didn't have that either. C'mon -- a $2 corkscrew? Good thing I didn't need a toothbrush!!!

If you're looking for a place close to the historic areas and downtown, look elsewhere; this place was 10 to 15 minutes south of that. It's in a strip mall area. Views? I have no idea where reviewer Maria M was looking, but all you can see from here is the 4-lane Cerillos Road, the strip mall stores, etc. -- the mountains are waaaaaay off

Pros:

The beds were comfortable.

The room was really clean and comfortable.

Good quality Samsung TV screen.

Microwave and small fridge included.

INFO:
Normal rate is around $70 for a 2-queen-bed room. OK price for Santa Fe.
I'd rather have paid $90 and stayed at the El Rey, which has character, much-more-caring staff, and is much closer to downtown.
