The Lodge at Santa Fe

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My boyfriend and I headed to Santa Fe to celebrate my 37th birthday. Not only was The Lodge perfectly located, but the super friendly staff enhanced the experience. Danny, our shuttle driver, gave us a mini tour and history lesson about the area. We also took full advantage of the early morning view and on-site restaurant. I can say that my first trip to The Lodge will not be my last... I'm guessing it would make a great wedding venue as well (hint, hint).

Are stay was for 5 nights, and enjoyed the location due to the drivers of the van to various places in Santa Fe. Both were quite knowledgeable of the area and it's history. The beds were in need of replacing, but the facility was clean and comfortable, This hotel is a good value compared to other hotels in the Santa Fe area.

I liked that they texted us on the day of our arrival. We were able to check in early.

When looking online the hotel looked amazing. When we arrived the toilet was filthy so we were upgraded to a suite, customer service was great and took care of us. The suite was a decent room but the walkway was covered in cigarette trash. The worst part was the food at the restaurant. Like so bad we couldn't even eat it. Definitely wouldn't stay there again. It was decently priced but I would rather pay more at a place where I don't have to sleep on top of the bedding because I was too freaked out.

Very close to the plaza. Nice hotel. We didn't spend much time in the room so it was perfect for what we were doing. Would stay again! Nice and easy.

We had stayed here approximately 4 years ago and had a nice stay. However, this hotel has seriously gone downhill since then. First, upon checking in, we were told that the hotel was now "going green," which meant that we would not have any housekeeping service during our stay. If we needed anything (e.g. towels, a hair dryer, etc.) we had to go to the front desk to request it. Clearly it is their scheme to save costs, not to "go green." If they really wanted to go green, perhaps they could start replacing the light bulbs with LED bulbs. But that's not what it's really about. Oh well. Don't plan on using the pool or hot tub. The pool is (understandably) closed for the winter months. The hot tub? It was supposed to be open during our stay but was half-drained the entire time. So much for that. Maybe a lukewarm, half-filled hot tub is also part of "going green?" The rooms are outdated and uncomfortable. The walls are thin - we could hear conversations clearly at normal voice levels. The bathroom was literally so small that when you opened the door it hit the toilet seat. The breakfast consisted of a large bowl of hard-broiled eggs, a waffle-making machine, yogurt, bread and coffee. The only good thing I have to say about this place is that the two young gentleman who worked the front desk during our stay were friendly. Clearly, I would not recommend this place to anyone anymore as there are much better places to stay in Santa Fe in the same price range.

The lock to the door was always a 3 minute struggle before it would open. Once inside the room had a musky odor and could have used a good cleaning. Speaking of cleaning, part of our "cheap" rate conditions we never received house keeping services during our 3 night stay. There was no hot water in the mornings, so our showers were taken at night.

the people that worked there were friendly and nice, but when we checked in they didn't inform us that they didn't have room service if you stayed more than one night. We had to go to the front desk and request towels, coffee, lotion etc. Never heard of this before.

Hard bed, thin walls, pillows were sofa throw pillow size who dose that.

Hotel staff were friendly and professional, enjoyed the free van transport to and from plaza. Rooms a bit dated, though serviceable. Pool was not heated, cold even in August! The cabaret show provided in Maria Benitez salon was exciting. Would stay again just for that. Old building needs some security fixes like hallway doors that actually lock especially after dark.

Nice hotel with a great breakfast room which overlooks the northern part of the city. They are close to downtown and have a shuttle which will take you there and back.There is a restaurant on the premises which serves lunch and dinner. The rooms have a Southwestern decor and the beds are comfortable. We had a very pleasant stay there.

For the price, the Lodge at Sante Fe is good value. It's easy to pay more in Santa Fe and be closer to the action. By sacrificing a bit with a short distance from downtown and the lower cost that comes with an older facility, our family enjoyed having more spending money during our stay by choosing our accommodation at the Lodge. To pay less or even equal to the Lodge, one would need to stay in an inferior facility with generic architecture.

Lovely hotel inside and out. The lobby and room were clean and charming, and the discounts provided by the hotel were nice. Central to a great neighborhood, and a shuttle is available to take you around. The only thing I barely noticed was litter in the parking lot and by the entrance stairs.

It is so beautiful on the outside, but terrible hotel. One server in the restaurant and he couldn't remember what we ordered. Took forever to even get a drink. Windows were filthy dirty, carpet was dirty. The water pressure wasn't adjusted and came spewing out. Drain line must have been clogged and we had to stand in water while taking a shower. The last day of our stay, the maid didn't clean the glasses, and we had to call twice to get washcloths and soap. The TV, coffee maker, and lamp all had to use same electrical outlet, so you had to unplug one in order to use the other. Worst hotel I've ever stayed in.

The manager addressed every concern that was raised and was very kind. The staff, especially the driver/bell stand folks were amazingly helpful and kind.

When we arrived at the Lodge we were immediately given our room by an excellent front desk team, that displayed excellent customer service throughout our stay. However dirty and worn room, hallway and stairs were dirty and not vacuumed during our stay. We went to the restaurant where there was a hostess that seated us and 1 server for a 102 seat restaurant. Took forever to get drinks and forever to get our food. Worst ever.

We asked to have our room cleaned by 1:00pm as we left before 9 am. It wasn't. They only provided one glass and one cup for coffee in our room with 2 double beds. The chair with ottoman was very uncomfortable.

The GOOD: Hotel had beautiful décor, throughout the hotel was clean and I loved the location. Very safe and quiet. The staff was very friendly, minus one. The BAD: We booked a 5 night stay here, looked like a nice place and got a great deal. After a 7 hour drive we check in and go to our room to find an elderly couple already there (husband in t-shirt and underwear). So we got to do the whole check in all over again. When I booked the room I was clear that there was FOUR of us- me, my husband, and two teens. Our room had THREE towels and TWO wash clothes, thankfully my kids had taken some from home. By the third night we had to go to the front desk to ask for enough washcloths and bathroom tissue (that's pretty embarrassing to do in front of others) and continued to do so till our last night there. The UGLY: We came back to the room on I believe our 4th evening to find a bowl left on the floor by the chair, apparently a leak from the rain with some paint chipping on the floor as well. The smoke detector was hanging from the ceiling and another sitting on the ac, not sure what that was about. This would be a great hotel if housekeeping restocked and a little maintenance was done

Loved my stay. Very nice staff and facilities, big enormous, lovely room.

I chose this hotel for its proximity and price, and the fact that it is Santa Fe themed. I expected it to be a bit like a Hampton Inn and that was the case. It has free parking, a very nice lobby and pleasant fireplace, and the added convenience of a restaurant on site. The food at the restaurant was better than expected and the service there was exceptional. The parking was safe and convenient. The room was tastefully decorated and well appointed. The only discomforts included someone else's hairs in the tub and a mattress that needs replacing (dent in the middle, no longer firm). The linens were wrinkled enough to make me wonder if they were fresh, but they looked clean. Even though this hotel has a great view of Santa Fe (best in town), it is also across the street from a massive national cemetery, which you don't discover until you're there. The pool and hot tub were closed. This is a great location for business travelers, families and people on a budget. It is accommodation, rather than a destination. Just like a Hampton Inn, with less comfortable beds. I was satisfied with the product for the price.
