“A Gem Among Gems.”
Reviewed 24 March 2009

As a frequent visitor to Santa Fe, I know very well the overwhelming number of places to stay and the range of prices which unfortunately, seem to hover in the high end. The Water Street Inn was a great discovery due to its location-just off the plaza, its price-which was very reasonable within the Santa Fe range, the breakfast-simple, yet wonderful, the happy hour-complete with wine and snacks, and the super friendly and very accomodating staff. The room we stayed in was a delight, particularly the wood-burning kiva fireplace. Will I stay there again? Most certainly.

We loved the quaint Southwestern decor and friendly welcome of the Water Street Inn. Though our room was a tad small, it was clean and cozy and dripping with charm. With the Inn providing a hearty breakfast and generous happy hour, we made lunch our main meal of the day and appreciated the cost savings. It was fun, too, gathering in the kitchen during happy hour with other guests; we met several fascinating people. Our only disappointment with the Inn was that they've neglected the grounds. I found myself wishing for a broom, a rake and a pair of pruning shears to neaten up our patio area. It wouldn't take much to bring their outside areas up to par with the rest of the property.

The room was amazing and the location could not have been any better. We were within walking distance of everything in the downtown area. We enjoyed every minute of our time spent there and hope to come back soon.

What a great place. Accomodating staff, with all the amenities you would expect at a 4 star place. Close to Plaza (a good walk) which was needed after all of the fine dining experiences in Santa Fe.

Having traveled to Santa Fe once a year for 30 odd years didn't think there were hidden secrets I hadn;t discovered but the Water Street Inn may be the best secret of all. This was perfect in every way from the room decor, size, and relaxed tranquility to the wonderful inviting staff to those homemade bedtime snacks. had been a bit intimidated by the idea of a B&B and was concerned about enough privacy, but this was a wonderful experience with the perfect mix of the laid back magic of Sata Fe and luxury. Room #2 was large, airy, and fully equipped with private bath and working fireplace. There was nothing missing or needed not available. Will return again and again.

This is our favorite place in Santa Fe. Great rooms, atmosphere, staff, location, etc. The staff makes you feel like family and everyone is truly delightful.

This was the kind of B&B you only find once in a great while. The managers and their assistants were friendly and helpful, suggesting good restaurants and interesting side-trips. The memorable "happy hour" had freshly-made drinks and fab cocktail snacks. The other guests were interesting to talk to.

The room was charming and beautifully furnished , and had a big four-poster bed with curtains. Our personal patio had a little fountain and flowering shrubs. There was a good choice of breakfast items, delivered on a tray to our room. It would have been a perfect honeymoon room.

We should add that we had one of the most expensive rooms (all that was left when we made our reservation), but we felt it was worth the price. If you go, make your reservation WELL in advance! Six months would not be too early.

  • Liked — The room
  • Disliked — room was a bit too full of furniture, fountain was slightly noisy at night.
