Historical Traveler Reviews Homewood Suites Santa Fe
We extended our stay!
We enjoyed the room, facilities and location enough that we extended our stay from 3 to 4 nights. The staff is generous of their time and knowledge ands tried to answer all of our questions about the choices of daytrips which are numerous from this location. I recommend it for both family stays and if you are just trying to get away. The breakfast included fresh hot choices and the normal pastries, breads, cereal and fruit. We chose it from the Trip Advisor reviews and all the posts were totally accurate.
We live in NM and were looking for a getaway that would include a little romance. We selected the Homewood Suites because they were near Santa Fe, yet not actually in the City Different. We were booked into the Wije Casita in a one-bedroom, 2 queen suite. The suite was spacious, comfortable, and sparkling clean. It had all the amenities you could hope for--fridge, microwave, kitchenware, on-demand TV. Our room was quiet and had a beautiful view of the golf course and the rolling hills. A very short drive from the hotel is the Towa Golf Course, which is part of the Buffalo Thunder Resort on which the Homewood Suites sits. We went to the cafe at the golf course and had drinks. The bartender was very friendly and professional. The restaurant/lounge was not crowded and the views were awesome. A small number of casino gaming machines were located in the corner. Due to the lateness of the hour, we did not eat at the restaurant. An all-you-care-to-eat breakfast at the hotel was included in the price and was of good quality. Pluses to staying at the Homewood Suites: Not far away is Gabriel's restaurant, which serves excellent Mexican and New Mexican style food. The margaritas and guacamole (made tableside) are perfection--I sincerely doubt there are better anywhere in the region. Near the hotel are two small casinos, Camel Rock and Cities of Gold. There was local entertainment available in the lounges and (primarily) video gaming. A beautiful daytrip is nearby: Bandelier National Monument where ancient Native American dwellings and cliff dwellings can be seen and explored. Our stay at the Homewood Suites was everything we hoped for and more. The beautiful facilities and great location made it easy for us to relax and unwind. This is a great place to spend quality time with someone you love!
Could be better
I have stayed at this hotel approximately
10 nights with my wife and two teens. We
were fortunate to stay last year when it
had been open for six weeks.
- rooms are MASSIVE. We stay in 2 bedroom/2 bath suites and I am guessing the square footage is 800-1000 sq.ft.
- food is very good with local cuisine a frequent menu item.
- beautiful location with hiking/skiing nearby in Los Alamos and of course there is Santa Fe ~30 mins. away
- very quiet (if you stay away from the elevators)
- roomed by the elevator which creates noise issues for light sleepers
- staff more distant than last year. Not rude mind you, just detached. Last year we were engaged quite freqently by hotel staff, not so this year. Even our teenaged son commented on this...
- yet another instance of being told a room was non-smoking but we find matches/ash trays in the room.
- 3rd shift desk attendant would remain in the back while you waited and waited and waited for them to appear (they have a camera on the front desk area). I really dislike having to raise my voice to get people's attention or feeling like (as a customer) that I am an interruption of their time.
- Same desk attendant mentioned above somehow found the chow line (which I thought was for the guests only) when the food was ready.
All-in-all one of the most fabuluous Homewoods we have ever stayed in regarding room size, furnishings, etc... Just disappointed much of the staff did not share our enthusiasm for the property.
Reviews are accurate
I booked this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews, which are entirely accurate. Beautiful hotel in a dramatic location mid-way between Santa Fe and Los Alamos with easy access to both. We were upgraded to a 2-bedroom suite which was enormous.
There is a beautiful lodge where breakfast is served, and a private business centre.
The only drawback if you are staying more than one night is the lack of restaurants in the immediate area. Nevertheless, this is a great place to stay.
Love This Hotel!
My friends and I have been staying at the Homewood Suites at Pojoaque Pueblo since it opened. It is quite frankly the best place to stay in the Santa Fe area. I've stayed at numerous places in town and although the Homewood Suites is north of Santa Fe, I will stay there from now on. I was most recently there during Indian Market and it was great to "get away" from the crowds and traffic by going north. Highly recomended.
Nicest New Hotel in Santa Fe Area
My husband and I stayed here on business for 4 nights in late January, and we were not disappointed. This hotel is 1 year old (they had a celebratory 1 year birthday breakfast for all guests one morning) and going strong. Great service, big comfy suites with nice overstuffed beds. Clean and cosy, and free hot breakfast in the morning. Decent coin-operated guest laundry room. Only a 15 minute drive to Santa Fe, or a twenty minute drive to Los Alamos. This is far better than many of the expensive and in some cases crummy Santa Fe hotels near the plaza which charge a fortune. If you are going to the opera in the summer the Homewood Suites would be the place to stay for sure.
Great facility, close to hiking, casinos
I loved our room, the breakfast, the entire facility. You could tell it was darn near brand new. We were there to hike (great hikes nearby) and hit the casinos (no shortage of those around). Santa Fe's only poker room 3 miles down the road, which sold us. Granted, to get back down into Santa Fe, it was quite a drive. For dinner, for instance, it took a good 30 minutes of highway and city driving to get there.
Love this Homewood!!!
I live in the Santa Fe area and my family stayed at Homewood for about a week while our well was being fixed at our home. I have stayed at a number of Homewood's and this Homewood Suites (by Hilton, of course) is by far the most beautiful I have ever stayed in. Not only is the exterior beautiful (adobe style, located on the gorgeous Towa Golf Resort), but the interior is one-of-a-kind. The art-work is all regional and just absolutely stunning. The staff is WONDERFUL and the rooms were so comfortable, we felt right at home! It's also close to two casinos, a 27 hole golf course and LOTS OF GREAT NEW MEXICAN FOOD!! I give this Hotel 110% approval to all who wish to visit the Santa Fe area. If you're looking for comfort, culture and great food, you'll love this hotel.
Great value for the money
Exceeded my expectations. After a terrible experience at another hotel, we moved to Homewood Suites. This is a new hotel that offers wonderful views and very comfortable furnishings.
I love this place and will definitely come back!
Wonderful new facility
We recently traveled through five states and our best experience was at the new Homewood Suites north of Santa Fe. We stayed in a wonderful "casita" which was beautifully decorated. The staff was attentive, and breakfast was wonderful both days. We will definitely stay there if we are lucky enough to return to beautiful and unique Santa Fe!

... Were able to get a seat fairly quickly at the bar, ordered some food and drink and then settled back to watch all the goings on.
There were many different costumes around, some very clever and others from the costume shop but it did seem that most people were having a very good time. Did get out and dance a few rounds and headed for home. Oh, what were we? Freddy Kruger lite, and sister of Spider Woman!!!!!

After drying off we drove down the main street of Santa Rosa and came across the Route 66 Auto Museum.

We got chatting to them and discovered that they were actually the owners of the Museum and the husband ...
... Oppenheimer turned out to be right. The Manhattan Project, at all its locations, operated under a blanket of tight security and unprecedented secrecy. The Los Alamos location was a total secret. Its only mailing address was Post Office Box 1663 in Santa Fe, the state capitol 35 miles away. The work of the laboratory culminated in the creation of several atomic devices, one of which was used in the first nuclear test near Alamogordo, New Mexico. ...
