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.

It had been a really long day by this point and we were all tired and I had a headache so we dashed around Walmart quickly then went back to the house to get some sleep.

... After a couple of hours at Bandelier, drove on to Los Alamos to the Bradbury Science Museum. Learned a lot about the Manhattan Project and the secret town that developed here, saw some of the buildings that were originally a boys ranch school but were comandeered for the scientists who came here. . . After Los Alamos we headed back to Tsankawi, an outlier section of Bandalier that is not staffed, we had it all to ourselves. Incredible great hike ...
We started the morning with a brisk hike up to the Cross of the Martyrs providing great views of Santa Fe. We then sought out the secret storefront for the Los Alamos Laboratory where euopean and Nazi scientist were checked-in before heading over to Los Alamos Labs.
We met Keith and his Tibetan Mastiff (Barkley) over at the rail yards. The weather held out longer today which allowed us to visit several restaurants - all of which were closed! We ...
... past some old motels, neon signs and artwork but there's nothing really to shout about. Amarillo was a convenient stop for us without driving a long distance, from our research there wasn't a great deal to see but whilst stopping off to get gas Sunny got talking to the lady behind the till and she told us that we must go and see Palo Duro canyon which would be about a 20min drive away. Off we went to Palo Duro canyon in the 26 ...
