It's quite nice place for the location and price. If your looking for a hotel caught in the 70's then this is it. All the way to having a restaurant that thinks puttng a Ze in front of the menu items makes it french. Quite funny I'm sure Julia
Child is just ze spinning in her grave.
We chose to stay here for the value and location. The location is very convenient for shopping and dining. They charge an additional $8.00 for parking; this is not made clear when booking. The room was clean and decent sized. We did not go to
Santa Fe to watch TV but the TV was tiny and had a very limited channel selection. The walls proved to be very thin and lacking in soundproofing as we could hear every word of our neighbor's conversation. It wasn't until the second day of our stay that I noticed the smoke detector was missing from the room. This is a blaring safety hazard. As we left to go shopping for the day we mentioned it to the man at the front desk. When we returned several hours later, it still had not been installed. I discussed this with the women then at the desk and she said "Would you like to check out?" Of course that was not our intent, we just wanted the room to be updated to basic fire code. A nice maintenance person overheard the conversation and had it fixed in 10 minutes. Note: I am not a hysterical person by any means but the flippant attitude of the staff (besides the maintenance guy) about guest safety was truely stunning.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
The nice ladys at Silver Sun on Canyon Rd know their Turqoise and will spend time educating you on it.
Be prepared to pay an extra $ 8.00 a day for parking. Although there is no breakfast provided, Ze French bistro next door is well worth a try. Their pancakes are unique and tasty. Santa Fe ski resort is a 30 minute drive away and well worth it.
The hotel is located close to the plaza and the rate is reasonable. The staff were very friendly. The room is clean, quiet, yet a little bit small. The parking fee is $8 per day. I really enjoy my stay there and I recommend it to everyone who
wants to stay at a hotel nearby the plaza area.
Location trumps all else. It was in a great location, at a fraction of the price of the other hotels in the area. It wasn't big, but was big enough. There was a fairly strong odor of some cleaning agent, but a take-out pizza from down the
street knocked it out for the duration of my stay. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance.
