I loved this Inn. Every detail was just lovely. The antiques, the plush linens and towels and mostly the architecture. My only advice would be to arrange your arrival and departure times in advance as i couldn't always find someone to help me since it's a very small place (just two rooms) and there's no desk staff. The people in the attached restaurant couldn't really help with check out, etc either. But once you settle in, you'll have your own key and can come and go whenever you please of course. I was also really impressed with the fact that my queen room had a separate sitting room as well as a covered outdoor garden area shared with the other guest in the next room. I can't wait to go back and am already planning my next trip. The rates are very reasonable for such quality!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This quaint adobe house known simply as “Josefina’s” has long been a symbol of warmth and welcome on the Historic Old Mesilla Plaza. Josefina’s is aptly named for the dynamic and outgoing woman who lived here for nearly 35 years and established the Luminaria Tradition of Mesilla. Dating back to the early 1900’s this home has served as a place to gather, socialize, and celebrate. This tradition lives on as “Josefina’s” opens its gates to the community and visitors of Mesilla.Once the site of holiday open houses and afternoon get-togethers, we now invite all to relax, spend time with friends and family, and enjoy the plaza in an intimate and comfortable setting. Whether you are gathering for a tea party on our patio, a luncheon in our café, celebrating a special anniversary in our Historic Inn, or shopping for that “must have” at Old Gate Antique’s, you are sure to find the warmth of Southern New Mexico charm. ... more less
