At first I thought the room was a tad overpriced compared to what we paid in Santa Fe the night before. But they had very nice sheets, towels, bedding, pillows, and were friendly and welcoming. Plus it is a much more private b&b than the other one we considered.
What made this place for us was the beautiful courtyard and the superb breakfasts. After spending a leisurely morning in the courtyard having breakfast, I will absolutely be back. We had one cricket we couldn't find and I feared it would chirp all night. Fortunately it settled down and our stay was very relaxing.
