Great stay for the price

Just an average room but had a nice, friendly vibe. Flowers in the flower boxes, nice breakfast room. Hottub jets didn't work but the pool area was cool. For $65 ish a night, you can't beat it.

Best value in Santa Fe

We tried to upgrade to a fancier hotel but couldn't find anything as good even for $125/night. The hotel is definitely older, but kept in good condition. There is an indoor pool and breakfast included. Breakfast includes make-your-own waffles, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, cereal, pastries/muffins, juices, coffee/tea. Nothing gourmet, but pretty decent. Location is not near any tourist sites, but on a convenient route. Considering how expensive hotels are in Santa Fe, we feel lucky to have found this one. We stay here at least twice annually.

For a cheap but healthy meal, try Whole Foods in Cerillos 2.5 mi away. Sandwiches, pizza, hot bar, salad bar, gourmet deli food that can be bought in any combination on a plate or in a container.

Clean, but old

The photos of this motel are slightly misleading. It is clean, but it is definitely old. For the price, it was a good room, but just don't go there expecting much.

Surprisingly Good!

Hadn't stayed here before, but after reading reviews, thought I'd give it a try. It was really good. Staff very friendly and helpful; the room was nice size and much nicer than the Santa Fe Sage Inn, great beds, funky, art deco type bathroom and a refrig to boot. The price was great as well--I paid $40 LESS per night than at the Sage Inn. The only suggestion I have is to make the lobby more appealing and have a computer for guests to use if you don't have your own computer.

The India Restaurant next door is great! Don't go to the Souper/Salad across the street--very dirty. We walked in and out.
