Old Santa Fe Inn
Travel Blogs from Santa Fe
We are really enjoying our time in Santa Fe. This trip is mostly about reconnecting with people in our lives, but we are also checking out places we want to return to. Santa Fe definitely falls into that category. Lots of history, VERY laid-back attitude. Kind of reminds of us Vail, or Jackson Hole, Bozeman. Obviously, a lot of …
3500 miles so far.
OK, so maybe I was a LITTLE harsh on Ruidoso. It actually looked a LITTLE better when we left today. Turns out we stayed in Ruidoso Downs. This is a big deal only because there is a horse racing track and yet ANOTHER CASINO in Ruidoso Downs. Three in a very small town. We didn't find the track and the Billy the Kid …
Santa Fe has history going back to the days when the Spanish governed the territory. Santa Fe being the end of the Santa Fe trail and the base of early fur traders trapping the rivers in the southern part of the west.
As in Albuquerque the town has an old square with numerous shops and history. Old churches and museums are all down town. Just as in Albuquerque the square has street artists selling the usual jewelry and things. The ...
... from City of Rocks back to Los Alamos. I’ve been typing this post as we drive along in the car. We’re now about half an hour from Santa Fe and the plan is that we’ll stop there for tea and from there it’s only another 45 minutes to Los Alamos. A shower will be extra special tonight – I had planned to have one this morning when I got up but it was before 7am and I walked all the way round to the visitors centre to discover ...
... say really being such a big country but it means we are doing really long days and finding it hard to get to the campsite with enough time to recuperate for the next leg. It was a good two hours between arriving in Santa Fe and finally reaching the campsite. When we got here we had cycled 76 miles and been on the road for 11 hours. When we unloaded the bikes and started putting the tent up, it would be an understatement to say that the camp ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsOld Santa Fe Inn
We booked this on-line before arrival. What we got was way better than I expected. Outstanding accommodations with personality, friendly welcome, obviously loved by its owners. We loved it. We upgraded to a Junior Suite, with a romantic fireplace, wonderful king bed, beautiful furniture, and a fridge. Had one of the best breakfasts ever in a hotel from the Burrito Bar. Location is wonderful - about four blocks to the Plaza. Only problem is Wi-Fi. Probably the worst I have ever had in a hotel. Will definitely return when in Santa Fe again

I stayed two nights at the Old Santa Fe Inn and really enjoyed my stay. My room was a little on the small side, but very comfortable. The bed was soft and enveloping - hard to get up in the morning. The staff at the Old Santa Fe Inn were all very helpful and friendly - again, nothing is too much trouble.
Breakfast was something else. There was a very large selection of hot (scrambled eggs, sausages, potatoes, porridge), cereal, fruit juices, fruit, toast. Fantastic array. They also serve Starbucks coffee. The Library is set up so you can have hot chocolate or coffee any time, with cookies. There were fires in the Dining Room and the Reception Room which was a welcome sight after coming in from the snow. All in all, you won't be disappointed with a stay here.

Historical Traveler Reviews Old Santa Fe Inn
The Old Santa Fe Inn is a gem!!
This little hotel is a delight. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were particularly pleased with the complimentary cookies that they put out upon our arrival and even more pleased with the extent and quality of the complimentary breakfast they offer. The location was terrific - just a short walk to the plaza with a gorgeous view of the mountains when you turn the corner. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. I would definitely book another stay at this hotel. It was a terrific value and the staff made it a terrific stay
Perfect spot, perfect price
After planning a last-minute trip online, I was extremely surprised by the quaintness, cleanliness, pleasant staff and extreme attention to decorative details at this well-priced motel/hotel a quick walk to the plaza. Not to mention the shuttle service and wonderfully fresh fruit and hearty breads served for breakfast; not the usual continental breakfast fare. Although I had a rental car, one is not necessary from this inn if you're staying in town. I plan to return with my family!
Loved our cozy room
We spent 4 nights at the Old Sante Fe Inn. Our room had a cozy fireplace and we were within walking distance of downtown as well as Canyon Road where there are a lot of art gallerys. There was a free breakfast every morning in their dining room which gave us a chance to meet other travelers. They were great at giving directions and very accomodating. Would recommend this hotel to my friends in a minute. We had a great time. Ralph Nyhus and Marti Lynn
It's an easy stroll to the Plaza, good price, clean & comfy. Not fancy, but nice. We enjoyed the kiva in our suite greatly while watching snow fall gently. The staff was great! We didn't eat the comp breakfast as our tradition is mornings at the Plaza Cafe, but saw many happily partaking. We will definitely stay here again!
While the room should be comfy & clean, Santa Fe is about what goes on outside the room. Old Santa Fe Inn makes for a great weekend overall.
The room was absolutely gorgeous! Conveniently located, I walked down to the square in just over five minutes. After spending all day downtown, and very tired, their complimentary shuttle service picked me up in front of where I was waiting. When I got back to the Inn, there were fresh baked cookies waiting at the desk for everyone to enjoy! I went back to my room and spent a peacfull evening enjoying the jacuzi tub and fireplace. This 'Great' Inn is perfectly located and reasonably priced.
Santa Fe Elegant
This hotel was packed while I was there but I couldn't tell, the service was like I was the only one there. The breakfast was excellent.
My room was elegant. Overall a discrete and sophisticated Santa Fe experience. The remodel of this hotel was done perfectly. For those of you familiar with Santa Fe, this is a 5-10 minute walk to Starbucks right on the Plaza, depending on how many store windows you look into along the way. We loved it! Two thumbs up!
Not so close
The other reviewers said this hotel was close to the plaza, but in reality it's more like a 20 minute walk. At the end of the day I did not enjoy having to hike those few extra blocks on empty streets to this hotel.
Breakfast was very good and the hotel looked charming. The rooms all had refrigerators and some had microwaves. Even though guests parked their cars in front of their room (most rooms are on street level) I didn't hear any noise at night.
If you get a room with 2 beds, you will not have a fireplace! Even though central reservations promised me one and I had to call them 3 times just to have them fax me a confirmation of my reservation. The room's heater/air conditioner was so loud! We even changed rooms to get wider beds and still had a terribly loud heater that we had to turn it off just to get some sleep.
The rooms do not have chains on them and the hotel made an electonic key for new guests to come into our room before we had even left in the morning!
We saw a couple nice looking hotels closer to town with equal or cheaper prices.
Good motel 5 mins from Plaza
Nice clean rooms includes continental breakfast and only a 5 minute walk from the Plaza. $89 plus tax for 2 doubles.If you do not want to pay extortionate prices in Santa Fe I would recommend this motel.
Enjoyed my stay
Staff was courteous and helpful; the rooms are not luxurious, but have a lot of character and are very comfortable. Breakfast is plentiful and good. Location is terrific--easy walking distance to the plaza, but not noisy at night.
Nice Motel, screwed up reservations system
Nice rooms, nice location, nice breakfast, 1 block from downtown.
However they use a central reservations system which lost my reservation as well as proof of my one night's deposit. Currently disputing a double billing from this hotel which was billed a month after my stay!!
