First, I have to say that I absolutely LOVE this place! So much history in the original buildings; you can just feel the past from the 20's / 30's when you arrive. I can get over the outdated bathroom fixtures, minimal (and, I mean: minimal) amenities when an incredible old New Mexico wood burning fireplace is a standard part of the rooms here. It is such a classic, and a place frozen in time.
So, if you're a bit snooty about having only the best, keep heading down the road. But, if you love experiencing the past in the here and now, this is the place for you! (Oh, and me...)
My only complaint? The lady that checked us in. Talk about indifference, bordering on absolutely rude! Older gal, sneering over her reading glasses. Greets you with "What do you need?" Not, "Welcome. How may I help you?". I returned to the desk only 15 minutes after check in to ask a question. She had no idea that she had just taken care of me moments before (so much for eye contact). Then, when my query had been answered, as I was saying 'thank you', she had already turned her back on me, saying to the person she was visiting with in the office, "So, like I was saying...". Aw, gee. So sorry that I interrupted the conversation! I just think I'll slink off into the restaurant and order a drink...
PS: the night security guy who delivered extra pillow and blanket AND showed us how to build a fire in these older adobe fireplaces was THE BEST! Personable, respectful, and a lot of fun to have conversation with.
Will we be back? You bet! No bitter, dismissive desk clerk can keep us away.
