      Historical Traveler Reviews Inn of the Governors Santa Fe

      Wonderful experience!

      from

      What a lovely hotel! I booked on-line and we didn't really know what to expect and we were so happy we made this hotel our choice. The room was small but very pleasant, spic and span, and the amenities were great. We had a small courtyard outside with chairs & table, ivy covered walls, and the outer wall led out to the main street through a pass-key door. It was so convenient to the plaza area, we popped in and out all the time. The concierge has a huge book with restaurants and menus for you to look through and she booked our reservations for us. Why don't all hotels have a book of restaurants and their menus? What a great idea! Morning buffet breakfast was fantastic, far beyond the normal buffet breakfast included with room rates. We had a dead car battery while we were there - left a refrigerator plugged in :( and staff was overwhelmingly helpful with that.

      I hope to return to Santa Fe for another visit and will definitely stay here - no it isn't a luxurious spa hotel but you can go to the spa for one day and spend your money more wisely for a great room and service at this hotel! It is far above the cookie cutter Hiltons & Sheratons.

      Great place, I have stayed here three times.

      from

      Love the place, feels like home, always meets and exceeds my expectations. The Inn is smack in the midle of everything, the plaza, stores, my favorite the Pena galleries, restaurants, you have it all within walking distance. The rooms are decorated very nice and always clean. You cant beat it for the price, always fair.

      Loved this hotel

      from

      A great hotel in a great location - within walking distance of Old Town Santa Fe. The room was very cheerful and well appointed. The staff was so helpful and friendly. They suggested restaurants, sightseeing and provided great directions. Wonderful buffet breakfast in the morning and sherry,cookies, and tea every afternoon. It was a great experience!

      Wonderful place to stay!

      from

      We would highly recommend the Inn of the Governors when visiting Sante Fe. The service was similar to that of a 4 star hotel with helpful front desk and concierge staff. We left our camera somewhere in the sheets of the bed on the last day, and the houskeeping staff immediately went to the room and scoured through it to find our camera before linens were changed. Room service was reasonably priced for a change. The room decor was lovely and very unique. The first night we stayed in a standard room, which was charming. The second night we upgraded to a superior room with a kiva fireplace - the room turned out to also include down comforters and egg crates on the beds, as well as an even nicer decor. The pool was perfect. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. The restaurant and dining areas were quaint. The hotel was right in the heart of downtown Sante Fe. If you're considering this hotel, you should definitely make a reservation!

      Great experience!!

      from

      Having never visited Santa Fe, I knew nothing of the hotels in the downtown area, other than the Inn at Lorretto. Walked in to the lobby expecting a standard motel, boy were wrong. The staff was extremely helpful and made us feel at home. They went above and beyond to offer dinner suggestions and nightlife without us asking. Great Heated Swimming pool, Great Bar, and for the price, the rooms are excellent. For someone that has managed in the Hotel Industry for 10 years, this was the most unexpected great hotel for the price I have stayed in in years! Very Highly Recommended.

      A nice hotel for a birthday celebration

      from

      My husband and I were returning from a cross country auto trip and chose Santa Fe as a special place to spend his 75th birthday. We had made backup motel reservations but wanted something better for two nights. It was pretty quiet on a Sunday night, and the staff graciously showed us available options. The location for sightseeing and dining is excellent. The staff was very gracious and helpful. The breakfast buffet is the best and included in the room rate. The decor is charming and parking complementary and convenient. Since there were no events, they posted my husband's birthday on the event board, and sent up a gift to our room. Part of the hotel does look like a motel but most of it has more an old hotel atmosphere.

      Excellent service, good ambiance, great location

      from

      Inn of the Governors is an older centrally located moter style property. My wife and I have stayed there twice in the last year with good results. Last time we had a room with a kiva fireplace over the Christmas Holidays - it was very very nice. Good lobby - port wine and tea in the afternoon - excellent food and service at breakfast included in the room price. Will stay there on our next visit to Santa Fe.

      Great Value

      from

      Over the past few years, I've stayed at six hotels in old downtown Santa Fe. Inn of the Governors beats them all for value. My last stay was Nov, '03. Their daily rate includes parking, hot breakfast buffet, heated pool, sherry & sweets between 4:00 and 5:00, robes, and a gift upon arrival. The location is great, convenient to both the square and the artsy Canyon Road. Room service goes until midnight, breakfast runs until 10:30 on weekends if you need to sleep-in. The kiva never runs out of firewood, it easily lights, and assistance from the hotel staff is not requried (as it is at some other hotels). The beautiful decor feels more like a home than a hotel. The staff is superb, service, service, service... If you visit Santa Fe, stay downtown. If you don't, the parking is TERRIBLE, and you'll miss the experience of walking the shops during the day, and the various hotel entertainment in the evening.

      Excellent choice in the heart of historic santa fe

      from

      THis is an excellent choice for the price. The rooms are nicely decorated with wood burning fireplaces in each room. You get a free breakfast buffett and parking included with everydays stay. The buffet is very well set-up with almost anything that you would want ( coming from a Chef's perspective). The staff is very nice and willing to help out in any way possible. The location is great, being only 3 blocks from the plaza and all the shopping. It's peaceful and secluded with all the amenities of a large hotel.

      The Inn of the Governors

      from

      What a gem of a hotel this is! I visited Santa Fe with 2 girlfriends

      for a girls getaway, and found this hotel on your website. The

      accomodations are spotless and tastefully decorated. We wanted to stay

      in the same room, yet have enough room to move around. They suggested

      the deluxe suite which was perfect. It had a big sitting area with a

      fireplace, and 2 queen beds and a roll-out. The hotel is located just

      one block from the historic plaza area... all you do is walk out the

      hotel door and turn the corner and there you are! The staff was always

      very accomodating and extrememly nice. I would recommend this hotel

      very highly.

This is the third fort that was constructed in this area, and it served as a protector to the supply wagons bringing goods from the east. This fort was so large that it stored goods for not only the soldiers in this Fort, but for many of the forts from there on into Mexico. The Santa Fe Trail goes past one ...

Areas were restricted from access and i assume people lived there to avoid being like animals at the zoo. A few dogs and one place was open where we bought hugely overpriced traditional bread. Interesting place and an interesting experience and something you could expect to see in a less developed country but most definitely not in the US. Basically very primitive mud shacks. See photos!

      ... a must see.

      We also walked by the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi. When they built the church, they didn’t complete it due to a lack of funding. You can see that there are no steeples.

      We had lunch today at Palacio Café for our last New Mexican meal. Chicken enchiladas for me (no rice and beans for me), and huevos rancheros for Dick. What a great meal!

      ... There was silt over part of the road and some big puddles, but when we got to the underpass, it was just full of red mud with no way of knowing how deep it was so we didn't take the risk.

      There was a gigantic bull who had been in the bushes and when we turned around he came out for a look, fortunately just standing on the roadside, watching us.

      We jumped onto the interstate as the old road was under water and ...
