Santa Fe is expensive. I have stayed in hotels in many countries, and all over the United States. This is one of the cleanest, quietest, and most tactically located hotels I have stayed in. It is located at the far end of the local outlet mall (your teenage kids will definitely notice that). There is nothing else, really, in the area. That means, no errant visitors to your vehicle while you sleep. The plaza is not far, if that is what you want to see, and Canyon Road (like a hundred galleries, awesome!) is the same distance. North of the hotel on Cerrillos is a pretty good brewery/restaurant (the Blue Corn Brewery), with good prices and good food, a nice end to a travelling night.

We chose the Commodoro room. This was a tiny room with two twin beds forced into a room meant for one queen bed. Only one occupant could move about the room at a time, requiring planning that would cause your Tom-Tom's hard drive to erase itself out of frustration . The bathroom is a creative endeavor, the sink placed under a mirror, which makes the room look bigger. Seems normal. The Toilet is in a closet, along with the shower, which is cleverly pressed into a seemingly forgotten corner of the room, next to the seemingly normal mirror-sink combination.

But don't judge too quickly. The shower is big enough for two people (as long as they don't need too much personal space), the water pressure is great, the temperature is great, and the fan works just fine. The slumbering occupant of the bed next to the normal mirror-sink combination can continue hibernating while their overly caffeinated roommate, only inches away, prepares to greet the world under layers of makeup and heat -treated hairspray.

The TV is nice, reminding me of the man cave I wish I had, and there is a nice touch most wouldn't notice: a comfortable office chair. They don't miss anything as far as the room is concerned. Well, they could have given us a better signal on the wireless internet. I wasn't able to download the 7 movies at once in less than a minute that I wanted to.

Oh, and the soft pillow, and the firm pillow, both on one bed? Nice touch. High thread count sheets, lots of blankets, and comfortable mattress. Too bad they stopped me in the lobby or I would have had the same thing at home.

Breakfast was great. I would have ordered the same thing at a nice restaurant. Eggs Florentine, scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, sausage, tortillas, Hatch chilies, waffles, toast, English muffins, bagels, etc. The coffee was good, but the carafe was too big to comfortably fit into my sweats or I would have had the same one in my car. Actual coffee cups, made out of ceramic as opposed to paper, and paper cups if you really needed them.

The second morning, the breakfast was a different. New Mexico scrambled eggs and bacon took the place of the Florentine eggs and sausage. Oh, and if you are concerned with your health, there are healthy alternatives such as cheerios, cereal, and cheerios. And twigs outside.

There is supposed to be a cafe, but we didn't even try it. If the rest of the service and breakfast are any indication, the lunch and dinner are pretty darn good. But I can't vouch for it. Might just be a myth for all I know. I think I saw chupacabra on the menu, with rice. So it's healthy.

The service was really good, the cleaning staff was invisible, the price was super low, the place smelled clean, and I didn't get cooties. I'm pretty happy and will stay here again!

So, Santa Fe being expensive, you wouldn't know it with the rates here. It's like you get outlet prices not only at the mall but here also. I recommend this hotel.

Great value for Santa Fe, convenient to I-25 and close to Outlet mall. More importantly, it was super clean, nice furnishings---not too shabby as my mom would say. It is a great example of the cool things a non-chain hotel can accomplish---the breakfast, in my opinion, was the most impressive thing. Yum! Also, the front desk was extremely helpful. There's no question in my mind that it deserves its tripadvisor status.

We shopped around Santa Fe for a reasonable place to stay for 2 rooms and stayed here based on price and reviews. I would have no reservations on recommending this to anybody. Big free breakfast, easy to access freeway (i25) and main road (Cerrillos) to go downtown to the Plaza. Clean rooms, quite well appointed with flat screen and many channels, organic soaps and nice walk in shower. Marble vanity, wireless and nice decor. The only con was the music in the lobby was too loud, so conversation with the front desk was awkward, should be an easy fix. Also, great gallery near plaza not to miss is Manitou Gallery on Palace, best artist I've seen (Kim Wiggins).

Perfect hotel. I travel 9 months a year for business and have stayed in every kind of lodging from one to five star, and this just became my favorite hotel. Everything you need; nothing you don't. Real eggs for breakfast, tea in the evenings, comfortable rooms with clean nice linen, enough plugs, well-designed rooms, friendly staff (they helped with my flat tire!) and excellent value for the price. Am actually LOOKING FORWARD to staying there again.

Booked this hotel on the strength of TripAdvisor recommendations. As usual the comments left by previous guests were right on the button. Upon arrival the desk clerk was welcoming, efficient and couldn't do enough to ensure that I knew all there was to know about the hotel. The reception area is equally welcoming with quality furnishings and artefacts reflecting the local native American culture. A voucher for a free 'welcome drink' was issued which was later enjoyed in the simple but cosy ding room where a limited range of beers and wines are served. Thee is a menu offering light snacks also.

The room was immaculately clean, furnished with modern fittings. My queen bed was comfortable, the shower exhilarating and the 32" plasma screen most adequate. Microwave and fridge/freezer available though not used.

Small heated pool and hot tub set in pool deck with good recliners,

Breakfast was excellent - eggs, sausage, waffle iron, cereals, fresh and canned fruit. Lots of choices in beverages including herbal teas.

OK, slightly more expensive than your typical motel chains but for a few dollars extra you get a whole lot more. Pleasure to be served by attentive staff who genuinely want you to have a good stay (and recommend to others!)

Hotel is very easily accesible from interstate 25 and adjacent to Santa Fe designer outlets who will be pleased to relieve you of few dollars more.

We arrived in Santa Fe Sunday afternoon to see a renowned physician of Allergy and Environmental Medicine Monday morning. This required reliable chemical and smoke free accommodations and we were pleasantly surprised to discover that the Inn at Santa Fe offered this and so much more. For those with severe chemical sensitivities, Victoria the General Manager, explained the Inn will provide an ozone treatment for the room when notified in advance. Similarly, for those with lesser sensitivities, one may request that the room be aired out for a few hours prior to the guest's arrival. One may also book a room away from any pets.

We enjoyed dinner and the Southwestern ambiance at the Inn's El Cafe relaxing by the warm fireplace. Accommodating my food restrictions, Victoria suggested they make a gluten and dairy -free vegetable soup. Those with food sensitivities only need to call their requests ahead. Victoria's hospitality lives up to the hotel's description, "The perfect balance of attention to detail, design, comfort and value of this full-service Santa Fe hotel".
