          Superb Location, Cheap and Cheerful, Some Nice Touches


          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.

          The location is terrific--you can walk to Site Santa Fe, to South Guadalupe Road (which is minutes away, and packed with great bars and restaurants, like Tomasita's and the Cowgirl Hall of Fame), and to the plaza. Oh, and there is a stunningly wonderful gelato place, called Gelato Benissimo, which is just off, home made gelato. The coconut was amazing.

          If you can afford it, go for one of the casitas at the back--more privacy and really rather lovely. We had our own little patio. The casita was tastefully decorated, spotless, and perfect for a few nights.

          The staff were super-friendly and helpful.

          Breakfast involved locally baked bread, oatmeal, fruit, and eggs. Basic, but fine. We 'ate in' two mornings and then treated ourselves to brunch at Pasqual's on the final morning (this is a must-do in Santa Fe). Take your breakfast out onto the patio, because the dining area is chaotic, tiny, and a little messy. The patio is rather charming.

          Perfect Anniversary Getaway


          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 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!

          Absolutely charming


          Had a wonderful stay at the Santa Fe Motel & Inn. Room had lots of Santa Fe charm and the breakfast was great.

          Beautiful Memorial Day morning, we sure would like to stay in Santa Fe longer. After coffee we returned to Canyon Road and walked the galleries. There are more galleries than can be seen in a day. I enjoyed it but found most of the art as useful as the mission doors we shopped for ...

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!

Unfortunately, it wasn't very far from the water which was all over the road and we could not see it. With trucks rushing past, we had little time to slow down. Sean went in and lost all sight with the rush of water towards him and the passing truck - he came out ok and dry to find a truck bumper about a metre away from him. I went in, just ...
