I wasn't sure how the stay would be as there were mixed reviews when I was investigating where to stay.
Well the place appears to be in the process of being refurbished as some rooms are being worked on.
We are a party of 4 with 2 adults and 2 teenage grandkids. I got the basic room. I chose this because of the proximity to the Plaza and the price was so great.
As it turns out everything is new or nearly new. We have a huge bedroom with a nice living room, dinette, small kitchen fully stocked with everything necessary for cooking.
The Plaza is maybe a 7 minute walk. There is shuttle service to wherever one needs to go within a radius but the walk is really nice. The Santa Fe School of Cooking that we will go to is also within walking distance as are grocery stores.
We needed extra blankets and had them within minutes.
I highly recommend the Villas to anyone and we will stay here again.

Santa Fe looks like a pretty town. The local houses here look like boxes, that is, there is no triangular roof. We find the cheapest place in town - Motel 6 and settle in for the night. We get dinner at a ...

The bridge was built in 1965 spans more than150 m over the gorge and over 200 m over the river. We actually did this before lunch but had to drive across it when we headed back to Santa Fe via a road we had not intended to take, it was pretty though and passed through Ojo Caliente, the oldest resort (hot springs) in the area. In Santa Fe around four and spent an ...
... gallery. The Santa Fe river is now down to a trickle!
For dinner, we went back to La Casa Sena. Starters included the same soup from earlier and sweet corn and cheese croquettes. For my main course, I had another appetizer, quail breast on a blue corn muffin – YUMMY! Dick had a hanger steak. Very tasty flavors with green chilies, of course.
So, now we are all caught up. Tomorrow, more of Santa Fe.
... so we took her up on that.
We managed to get everything loaded up and headed out. We took time to have lunch at Aztec before she dropped us off. We had a very nice time catching up and just talking about a wide range of topics.
We woke up to a beautiful, clear morning, with the temperature in the mid 50's. Today was a driving day, and we started by going to this huge yard called Jim Gray’s Petrified Wood and Rock Shop. We have been to quite a few yards, but this was the largest we've seen. There was such a variety of other rocks as well - sandstone, geodes, cactus wood, fossils, gems and so ...
