Older 1950’s style motel, but very well kept. I had an upstairs room (no elevator) which was nice. Bathroom was old style with a small sink and gold flecked formica counter that was painted, but tile around bathtub was in excellent shape. Room was compact, but nice. AC worked great, internet worked well, bed was very soft, but I slept...

Stayed here fo 3 nights in mid May. Very affordable for Santa Fe. We searched online and found a rate of $65.00 per night and paid a small amount for an upgrade for a King bed. A bit dated but very clean and quiet. Lpoks like they are also working on upgrades. Got up too late for the complimentary breakfast....

The reception area smelled strongly of curry, the owner lectured us about bringing pets into the room despite the fact that we had no pet. We had booked several months before and because my partner is disabled we had requested a ground floor room. No ground floor rooms were available. Breakfast was average, if you want eggs you will have...

I just needed a room for the night. I was in rm 101 near the office and facing the road. SF is expensive and this was very economical. But I didn't get much sleep with the amount of road noise. Lots of kid racers and loud booming car radios on the 6 lane road out front. The real issue I...

The roadside appearance doesn't do justice to what's on offer. Rooms are a good size and clean, comfy bed. The pool looked good but we were too tired to try it out. Reasonable free breakfast on offer till 9am only.

We booked this room because of the pool and hot tub. When we arrived we were told that both were not clean and could not be used. the next morning there were people in the hot tub as we were checking out. The room was clean, out dated for sure the microwave belonged in a museum. The beds were the...

This hotel advertises a pool temperature of 84 degrees and I believe they are correct. They have a very nice pool and hot tub area. My two grandsons were very happy. I had requested a room on the first floor away from the street. They did that plus they put us near the pool. I really appreciated that. The room...

My hubby booked us in for three nights, sight unseen. The room was a large one with comfortable beds. It was fresh and clean. Lots of parking. We were a bit concerned that the neighborhood seemed to be using the parking lot as a shortcut between streets. Lots of people were walking through the parking lot who were not guests....

Useful tips on where to go from the friendly staff and the room was clean. The inn is only a 10 minute drive to the plaza. There's a grocery store across the street and there are plenty of restaurants nearby too. The pool and hot tub area was busy with families because of spring break but a soothing soak after...

The best things about this motel are the cleanliness, the staff, and the pool. The bed was VERY comfortable! The reason I gave it a 4 rating is because it is older looking, the ice machine didn't work, the microwave cord wasn't plugged in because it didn't reach the outlet, and the room was a bit on the small side....
