“Quaint Retro Accomodations”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

We were traveling and read good reviews on tripadvisor about this place. The price was right and we even got a senior discount on top of that. Pros: being about 50% occupied, it was very quiet, even though it is located on a thoroughfare as the doors do not face the street and there is no center hallway like a big motel. The breakfast was a bit above typical with fresh bakery type coffeecake, Cutie tangerines, bananas etc. Room was clean, as posted reviews indicated.
Cons : we had room 9 with 2 double beds and not a lot of room to walk to the rest room. Definately not safe in winter with small children because the wall heater gets very hot and it has a metal grill. There is no tub (shower) or vanity surface, just a sink.
Decor was western. One chair upholstered in animal hide.

Bed was a very comfortable pillowtop.

I bought 3 beautiful and inexpensive, silver and stone bracelets in the lobby. Other retro decor decorates the lobby too. Take time to look.

We had a good meal at the Souper Salad up the road near the grocery store and gas staion.

An authentic 1950's motel, real Americana. Cosy and character filled. Best breakfast of any motel we stayed at in US including hard boiled eggs. Genuinely friendly and informative staff who really added value to our one day stay in Santa Fe. Highly recommend, excellent value.

We enjoyed our three-night stay at the Silver Saddle, a visit that happened to coincide with some of the coldest nights this winter. The room stayed very cozy and warm. The bed was comfortable, and everything was clean.

If you are concerned about road noise from Cerillos Road, choose a room with a higher number, which are furthest from the road. Also, check out the Silver Saddle website to see 2-3 photographs of each room.

This is a good value, has a fun character and is conveniently located, with a very helpful, friendly staff. Although there were a couple things that I didn't care for, like the soap products and my pillow, I don't expect everything to always be to my exact preference when traveling (I'm happier that way!) and I would stay here again without hesitation.

My daughter and I spent three nights here for a girls weekend away. The room was spotless, the beds comfortable, the breakfast filling. The location is right on Cerrillos Road, which is one of the main roads in Santa Fe. We were staying in a room in the middle of the property and didn't hear any road traffic. The historic downtown plaza was less than a 10 minute drive from the motel.
The room was outfitted with two double beds, a refrigerator, microwave, nightstand and small table with two chairs. The room was a good size, but the bathroom was another story. If you have issues with small showers, this is not the place for you. Our shower was smaller than a phone booth with a low hanging fixed shower head. If you can overlook the bathroom, this motel is a great value.

We stayed there two nights last weekend. The price is right and value excellent. The room was small and plain, but everything was clean. Neat tile in the bathroom. The employees at the desk was extra friendly. Probably not the motel you would spend your whole vacation at, but if you are just sleeping or in and out, this is a great option. We were in the Wyatt Earp room!

We needed a good place to stay while in Santa Fe on business one weekend. We very much enjoyed our stay at Silver Saddle and would recommend it as a good place to stay. The staff was lovely and friendly. A decent breakfast is included and there is a microwave in the room. We will definitely stay there again. Basic, clean and an excellent price!
