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.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

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.

Good for short cheap stay

Nicer than expected rooms for the price. The staff is very nice, but not so responsive late at night. Breakfast was cereals, bagels/toast/danish, coffee, juice, bananas. The pool had not been cleaned in some time, and not something I would swim in at least during our visit in November. Overall, a great place to crash on a quick visit to Santa Fe. Good value for the money.

Small but clean!

The room is quite small but it was good enough for us. The sheets and pillows were clean. Everything was working in the room. It's a good hotel for just passing through.
