Good deal through Hotwire
We got a price of $50 per night through Hotwire and it was certainly worth that! The hotel is in good condition. The only drawback is the distance from the downtown area - about 3 or 4 miles, but you'd pay a lot more to be closer to the action! There's plenty of restaurants in the area.
We stayed 3 nights in October at the Holiday Inn and I must say I was surprised at the accomodations. We checked in after making 2 separate reservations through Hotwire and the desk clerk offered us a room with 2 doubles. After joking with him that my husband would have a fit if he had to sleep in a double with me, I was offered a King room. It was a little small but we weren't there that much anyway. Very clean and comfortable with a little balcony (no chairs). Nice amenities, free newspapers in the lobby and in-room coffee. We were very pleased as the room was 70.00 per night and a short drive to the plaza. Recommended.
We recently spent one night at the Holiday Inn in Santa Fe. As noted by previous messages the hotel on quite a bit away from the Old Town. It also sits on a busy road and as our room was on that side of the hotel the traffic noise was noticable until 11 PM or so. It's an older place but the remodel job went well. It is convenient to local eateries and a large mall. Staying in the Historic District is more fun, and also much more expensive. We got a decent rate, parking was easy and convenient and I liked the free wireless internet access. It isn't a great place but an average Holiday Inn in a very above average town.
Great Place to Stay
Had a 3 day stay here and everything was great. Nice reconditioned rooms, great decor in room and around the hotel. The new restaurant and bar was a pleasant experience. Very nice selection of wines by the glass.
Nice place, but far from historic downtown
This southwestern themed hotel was very nicely decorated and in good shape, it looked like it had been recently renovated. Its close to the freeway, but further from downtown Santa Fe, which is what you come to see basically. The hotel was good, just a bit far from downtown, I'd probably stay somewhere closer next time.
Property was Ok but the guests....
Property has been renovated and is in good shape. In wall AC unit was a bit noisy though. Room and public areas are well maintained. All rooms have balcony. Small indoor/outdoor pool area. A bit of a drive into central Santa Fe along a busy street but not bad for the price.
Major party was taking place in the room above. Much running and banging and tossing of beer bottles off the balcony. Starting at 11:30 called the desk. Took three calls over the next hour and a half before the party was ended. No compensation or change of room offered.
For that reason alone I would look somewhere else next time.
Nice place to stay
Mainly chose the Holiday Inn for my stay in Santa Fe because of their indoor/outdoor pool, which did not exactly meet my expectations because it was not very big, but it was good anyway. The big plus of the hotel was the beautiful decoration of the lobby and the room. All the time I really felt like being in the middle of New Mexico. Would stay here again.
This hotel is alright, but definitely not worth the price. Close to the shopping mall, but far away from the plaza. Website cited that the hotel had been recently renovated but it smelled musty and the decor was outdated. Also the outdoor pool was tiny and the hotel didn't seem particularly safe late at night. Wouldn't recommend staying at this property.
First of all, the town of Santa Fe itself is not the most warm and inviting in itself, and that attitude trickles down into some of the staff at the Holiday Inn. For starters, the security guard looks like he hasn't showered in a week and does not know how to tuck a shirt in. I don't feel that secure when your "security" guard looks like this. I also do not need to be glared at when I come in after enjoying (or trying to) a night on the town. If I were to have been making noise it would have been one thing, but not a sound came out of my mouth. The second is the morning waiter. If I asked for toast instead of a biscuit and the waiter didn't hear me, he shouldn't say, "You didn't say that" when the food comes out and I ask again. The skiing at Santa Fe was great but it's not worth it to be treated this way by businesses and locals alike. I think I'll cough up the extra money and go to Colorado next year. No wonder this town is decaying.
Holiday Inn Rocks!
The indoor/outdoor pool was great for the kids! The service & food was top notch. Just across the street from Santa Fe's largest shopping mall.

We have been pretty good about sunscreen and no one has gotten burned yet! This is very unlike me - usually I am a tomato.
Weirdest thing you've seen:
Julia - The metal tree in Santa Monica
Ben - pineapple lady at the Grand Canyon
Krista - people feeding squirrels by hand at Zion - super gross!
Will - When he walked in on someone at the bathroom in Bocce restaurant. The guy didn't lock the door.
... why Hayley had to create an outfit out of what was accessible from her bag after taking the plunge! I’ve posted a video with this entry so you can see how much fun we had. It’s these little random stops that made our driving day so much more fun than usual!
After driving along yet more pretty roads marvelling at the gorgeous New Mexico scenery we finally arrived at the house in Eldorado, just outside Santa Fe. It’s a very ...
... we had to sleep. Unfortunately for Harriet, Elise and myself, because we weren't on dinner duty, we were in charge of flipping the tents in the wind so that they would dry all the way through.
Somehow in my extreme awesomeness I managed to end up with a tent right on top of me after the tent pegs came out of the ground and it was picked up by the wind. We did actually get the tents pegged properly, and they did actually manage to dry pretty much all the ...
... were many Native Americans dancing and chanting whilst using all their original Native American instruments. It was quite a spectacle, as I had only seen this sort of thing in Western films, and I hadn't appreciated that these things still happened. Major Voights bought us all a fry bread which is basically a fried dough ball flattened out and can be served with honey or sugar, kind of like an American Indian doughnut.
... American War, purchase of NM, AZ, CA, NV by US for $5 million in 1846. Became a state in 1912 (47th). Real shame - can you imagine the US without California? But, I digress. Then, the tour got ugly :-) Went up Canyon Road, at least one mile solid of VERY upscale art galleries. I watched Jane's face. Of course, when the tour was over, we lunched, then went back to Canyon Road. I must admit, ...
