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.

For the entire trip, Chad and Alli were really lobbying for as much time in Santa Fe as possible. It turns out that Bethany and Andre preferred to do a long stretch of the drive at night.

After enjoying the Petroglyph National Monument, we drove from Albuquerque to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Although only a population of about 70,000, Santa Fe is the state capital.

... maker giving me a dollar off. I thanked him and went my way. Talking with them I found out that some of them come quite a distance away (70 miles) in order to sell.
As a "Solo Traveler" I will not hesitate to stop and ask questions of complete strangers. I mean how are you going to know if you don't ask. I remember recently a young woman who was out traveling for the very first time alone. I met her at the ...
... church we have seen in America, everything else relatively new in comparison to European history, The mixture of Native American and Mexican and Spanish immigrants in Santa Fe is well meshed.
The plaza is kind of like the posh part of the Lanes in Brighton, but is full of Native American art and turquoise jewellery. New Mexico is thought to be the location of the oldest turquoise mines, and prior to the 1920s the state was the country's largest ...
... It is very clear how the coming of the Interstates in the 1960's decimated towns along the way, people just moved out and the building and businesses just went to rack and ruin. Very sad in many ways. These small towns would have offered weary migrants vittels and rest from the journey and old broken down motel and garage signs are evidence of a bygone day. We decided to stop for Brunch, a meal the Americans do so well. We used our ...
