“Perfect Santa Fe visit”
Reviewed 27 February 2014 via mobile

The Old Santa Fe Inn is an excellent place to enjoy Santa Fe. Easy walk to downtown square, nice rooms, friendly helpful staff, and an excellent New Mexican breakfast buffet. The full property WiFi is a great convenience and the conference room made my meetings easy and effective. Love to snag the afternoon cookies and coffee too. My place of choice for coming here!

My wife and I stayed at the Old Santa Fe Inn primarily based on the reviews from tripadvisor. Though the room was much smaller in person than in their photos the overall accommodations did not disappoint. The Inn is within a few blocks of the downtown square, well within walking distance. The check-in was very friendly and quick. They are a pet friendly establishment and they have a wonderful library in which they also serve complementary Starbucks coffee and hot chocolate. The room was very small. That said, it was filled with quality items and furnishings. Our room was # 21 located in the far back corner of the "U"-shaped hotel away from the street. It also had a gas fireplace, which I would highly recommend during the cooler months. The bathroom was also rich in appearance and had a jetted tub. The morning complementary breakfast was a topper. A full burrito bar, with scrambled eggs, bacon and a variety of salsas. Or you could go for the different breads, oatmeals, or fruit that was also available. The small size rooms and the fact that they open directly onto the parking lot is why I would rate them a four rather than five stars. I used a discount site to reserve this room but it was still close to $150. All in all, and compared to other 3-stars hotels in the area, the value was still there for one night. We came as tired travelers and left full and happy, happy, happy. I would definitely recommend if visiting Santa Fe.

Room Tip: Ask for a room towards the back of the hotel because the Inn sits on a busy street and has no rooms...

In a nutshell...
Converted/updated motor-court with boutique hotel aspirations.
Great location - a short walk to the plaza.
Free parking! This is a big deal in downtown Santa Fe...
Wouldn't consider this deluxe, but it is clean, tasteful, and well-maintained.
Okay breakfast. Substitute 'burrito bar' for omelet station.
Fresh cookies at 4:30pm, coffee and tea available all day in the lounge.
Free New York Times.
Bed and pillows could be more comfy.
WiFi was spotty during our visit
Friendly staff.
Not necessarily a bargain...But I would definitely come back again.

We stayed here for 3 nights and for $120 a night we couldn't have asked for a better deal. Location was within walking distance all the major Santa Fe sights, shopping, and restaurants. Free parking, free wifi, free (and good) breakfast, and the best part was free chocolate chip cookies and Starbucks coffee in the late afternoon. We stayed in a room with a standard queen and it was just the right size for two people - zero issues with cleanliness, services, etc. Staff was friendly and I would recommend this to anyone coming to Santa Fe.

We stayed at the Old Santa Fe Inn in 2005, and we really liked it. We've stayed various other places in Santa Fe (Hotel Santa Fe and the Hilton, naming a couple), but we found ourselves coming back here for Valentine's Day weekend! Even though it's a little on the expensive side, the room was GORGEOUS- very clean and extremely well appointed. The art and furnishings are classy yet cozy. Breakfast was awesome as well- beautifully clean and laid out. The salsa- TO DIE FOR!! :) The breakfast area was very quiet and lovely. The breakfast area staff were so kind and attentive- top notch customer service. We enjoyed the location- it was great not having to drive to the Plaza each time we wanted to go- we could practically step outside our front door and there we were!

Tiny negatives- if you drive a large vehicle (we have a large SUV), the parking spaces are a bit small. Not a big deal, though. Also- breakfast was wonderful, but if you warmed the tortillas, it would be even more amazing!

We had a fabulous stay, and we WILL be returning!!! LOVE the Old Santa Fe Inn!

We booked this on-line before arrival. What we got was way better than I expected. Outstanding accommodations with personality, friendly welcome, obviously loved by its owners. We loved it. We upgraded to a Junior Suite, with a romantic fireplace, wonderful king bed, beautiful furniture, and a fridge. Had one of the best breakfasts ever in a hotel from the Burrito Bar. Location is wonderful - about four blocks to the Plaza. Only problem is Wi-Fi. Probably the worst I have ever had in a hotel. Will definitely return when in Santa Fe again

Room Tip: We had a Junior Suite. Can't comment on regular rooms

We have a place in northern New Mexico and are frequently in Santa Fe. We almost always stay at the Old Santa Fe Inn. They have consistently been excellent. The price is great, it's a very short walk to the plaza, the rooms are fantastic and clean, and the free breakfast is great!! We have stayed at almost every hotel in or near the plaza area and this is still our favorite, even above the MUCH more expensive choices!

Room Tip: If you feel like splurging a little go for the Deluxe Suite and ask for the upstairs room with the p...
