Santa Fe Motel and Inn
Travel Blogs from Santa Fe
Our first stop today - our only full day here - was Sissel's, a jewelery and art shop just around the corner from the inn. Gorgeous rings (my focus!) and of course, belts.
We waited & perused while Sissel phoned one of the artists to ask if he'd fax a picture of a particular belt that Viv liked and when that didn't work out Sissel organised …
We had a marvellous, marvellous time this morning in old Albuquerque wandering around the plaza and shops, looking at art & jewellery and talking to people. Our mission, a concho belt for Viv.
We payed for our parking by poking 3 one dollar bills into a tiny little slot in a big blue box. Our parking bay was #4 so the $ goes into the …
Pops and I had breakfast at the hotel this morning at 7 after quick walk around the neighborhood and checked out a very cool park around the corner. We hit the road early for Taos area and enjoyed the drive along the Rio Grande River on 68. We stopped to snap a pic as a whitewater rafting group was getting picked up and a guide gave us a different …
Long day of driving but worth it to have extra time in Santa Fe- what a place. Very unique, love the adobe architecture- different than anything we're used to seeing. Soft, rounded edges, clean lines. Very clean city. We got here in little over 13 hours today as we left Little Rock by 5am and drove through Oklahoma, Texas Panhandle and arrived in …
... K’ with just two of them comfortably – they must me a lot more flexible than me! I wait patiently to get my picture. Don’t you hate those tourists who take forever to get a picture (or ten), when it’s clear there is a zillion other people waiting! Ok, ok rant over haha! After half an hour or so, it was time to get back in the van for the final stretch of the journey to Santa Fe. It’s evening by the time we arrive and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Santa Fe Motel and Inn
If you're spending a few days in Santa Fe, and don't have serious money to spend on a super-fancy plaza hotel, I think the Santa Fe Motel and Inn is perfect.
We wanted to celebrate our 20th anniversary in Santa Fe, however, we did not want to go "over the top" with accommodations. Nor did we want to stay in a chain motel. The Santa Fe Motel and Inn turned out to be the perfect arrangement! Our casita was roomy and well appointed with a wonderful decor. Despite being right next to the breakfast area and patio, our gated entryway provided superb privacy, and we never noticed any noise from the guests. The staff was extremely helpful with offering directions and suggestions for any of our requests. The short walk to the plaza was pleasant, and a welcome dose of exercise to help burn some calories. The breakfast was perfect for our tastes with an assortment of eggs, oatmeal, cereals, breads, coffe, juices and fresh fruits. We had a wonderful stay that added a nice touch to our celebration. We will definitely stay here again.
Really nice place
Great place. A walk from downtown. We seemed to luck out with getting room #1 as I think it is more spacious than the others (has an eating kitchen) and no-one above you. Right next to the road but our room was unbelievably quiet and restful (I think because of the thick walls and the windows and door face into the parking area away from the road. Really nicely decorated SW style....really friendly, informative and efficient staff....really clean....great breakfast....free cookies....we will definitely be back!
So Happy We Picked This Lovely Inn
Since we had never been to Santa Fe, NM before we had to rely on other tripadvisor reviews to choose accomodations and we were very pleased with the choice we made. The Inn is charming, clean and conveniently located. The staff is professional and most helpful. We especially loved the morning breakfast on the patio which included scrambled eggs, toast, cereal, juice, coffee and tea. Our room was nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable. We stayed in a casita which had a fridge and a microwave. It was a great value for the money and we will surely stay there again.
Nice walk to downtown. charming room. excellent breakfast. helpful staff. comfy place to stay.
Good room, good price
For the price, this place was a wonderful deal. I took my nephew, which means we didn't need an ornate, expensive, romantic place! We found the place to be cute, clean, and well situated near the center of town with free parking right on front of the room. The front desk woman was extremely nice and helpful.
I tried this place in October 2004 because Frommers said it was great. What a Bummer!!!
The Breakfast Area was too small to accommodate all of the people who tried to use it. The Motel staff used the breakfast area as a walk through to socialize, talk on the phone and eat from the guest table. People were coughing and sneezing on each other. The dishes were being washed and scrapped while guests tried to squeeze into the room. The orange juice was heavily diluted. At best one could get to sit for a moment and then get pushed out. What a horror!!!!!
The toilet in the room was not securely mounted which caused one to rock on the bowl.
The floors were filthy. There was nothing positive!!!
The greatest find in Santa Fe
After staying in the higher priced hotels, La Fonda and Hotel Santa Fe, what a delight to find such a great place so near the "hub." A real find, and a great value.
We LOVED this Inn!!!!!!!!!
This has got to be the greatest place to stay in Santa Fe! What a deal! The Inn is absolutely gorgeous with tons of "Santa Fe" details & niceties. The beds even had linens from The Company Store. The Santa Fe Motel & Inn is truly within walking distance from the plaza, unlike several other hotels that advertised this. The staff was sweet, helpful & knowledgable. And oh-my-goodness - - the BREAKFAST! Breakfast is served in the quaint Santa Fe courtyard & is delicious REAL food like eggs, oatmeal, grits & locally baked bread.
I cannot recommend the Santa Fe Motel & Inn enough!
Had a wonderful stay at the Santa Fe Motel & Inn. Room had lots of Santa Fe charm and the breakfast was great.
