“Tired hotel in a bad location”
Reviewed September 18, 2009

My shower curtain was disgustingly filthy on the inside. That was the second surprise. The first was how long it took to drive to Santa Fe downtown from this far-out locale. It is not just the distance; it is the traffic. It took 20 minutes one way in heavy traffic. And the traffic was ALWAYS heavy. Plus, you have to drive thru what I assume is one of Santa Fe's worst areas to get to the tourist stuff from where this hotel is located. The free "high speed" internet was slower than a dial up modem. I'd like to recommend to them that they provide more variety in morning tv in their breakfast room. Being force fed Fox News every morning is not my, nor a lot of their other guests, idea of a good start to the day. I asked to change the channel and was told they "couldn't".

This hotel is old and clearly was not originally built to be a Hamtpon Inn. The elevator is very far from the main lobby. If you take the stairs from the second floor it dumps you outside and you have to walk around the corner to get back inside. Smoking rooms and nonsmoking room we stayed in were side by side so there was an assault of stale cigarrette smoke in the air everytime we opened the door. View overlooked an overrun trailer park. I would pay extra money to stay somewhere else.

Clean, spacious hotel. Breakfast had good selection/service. We did not spend any time at the pool/gym area. We stayed here at the last minute because we were too tired to make it to the next destination. Just know that this hotel is not located near the Plaza. We loved Santa Fe... Can't wait to return. Maybe next time without the kids.

I am surprised that some reviewers have bad mouthed the staff here. We found them to be very courteous and helpful. They volunteered information about where to find a grocery store and movie theater and even printed a schedule for movies. It is not a luxury hotel but it is very clean and the room was comfortable. The free breakfast menu changed each day and was very good. It is not extensive but remember it is free. The biscuits and tortillas were warm and fresh and the eggs and sausage were also good. It is about a 10 minute drive to the plaza. Unlike the previous reviewer we experienced no problem with the TV reception.

We stayed at this hotel because of our dog and our requirement for a nonsmoking room. Both of these basic needs were met but over several days we encountered some less than professional (even surly) staff as well as minor but nagging inconveniences (noise, questions about the bill, sporadically-functioning tv and internet). Breakfast was simply inedible. The room was clean but I had to de-clog the sink myself. There are many, many places to stay in Santa Fe and when we return, we'll avoid the Hampton Inn.

I stayed here while heading to Farmington, NM late one night. The price was good and service was adequate.

I would stay here again if in the area.

Santa Fe has lots of terrific inns and B&B's, and most are not inexpensive. The Hampton Inn, several miles away from the Plaza area, provides a decent chain hotel option at a very reasonable price for those of us who do not plan to spend much time in the room. We paid about $92/night (including taxes) at a senior rate. This hotel was moderately clean and fairly average as such hotels go, although seating, luggage shelf space and placements of electrical outlets were Fair. Housekeeping did a Very Good job of cleaning the room. The counter space in the small bathroom was Very Good, as was the mirror, and there were four full sets of towels. The room itself was tight -- a second chair was placed near the entry where there was no light. Staff attitude and reception was Very Good. The breakfast was only Fair. This is not a new hotel, and could do with some freshening up.
