I am a repeat customer at Casa Pacifica, and I feel that the description the owner posted on her website is very accurate--don't look for chocolates on your pillow, but this is a great value, especially if you have a dog. I think that if first-time travelers could be notified as to where to check in (you have to go through a courtyard and then knock on a sliding glass patio door on the left), people would be better satisfied. A sign would suffice. This was not a problem for us, since we knew the drill, but I can see how it might have skewed some of the previous reviews.
The value was exceptional for Santa Fe at Christmas time, and we got a night free in a large suite because of a repair issue. The room we transferred to was quite charming, and it even had a steam room capacity in the shower. Although housekeeping is not provided unless you request it, the owner's daughter Emily was so sweet and helpful with all of our needs. The gas fireplaces provide a beautiful ambiance. Oh yeah, and the breakfasts are absolutely outstanding for a B&B--they are quite healthy and just the right portion size. I would recommend this B&B very highly to those who do not expect to be waited on hand and foot but do expect premium value, and to those with dogs.
One note to the innkeeper: the towels uniformly smell like mildew, and this could be remedied very easily with some bleach. I think it would improve the experience for guests. But the overall experience was outstanding...a must-stay.
