Relaxed simplicity at professional motel in the heart of Santa Fe
Despite the name and a 1930s double-level motor court layout, The Old Santa Fe Inn feels fresh, clean and up-to-date. The property promises an understated stay with the mature furnishings of a classy Santa Fe, New Mexico residence. A reasonable price and free perks, including a breakfast burrito bar, make it a good value in downtown. Explore cultural Santa Fe and return home to this warm, tastefully decorated Pueblo-style accommodation.
Highlights
  • Pet-friendly (fees apply)
  • Complimentary breakfast burritos, cookies, coffee, tea and hot chocolate
  • One block to state capitol, two blocks to rail depot and three blocks to historic plaza
  • Free parking
  • Free Wi-Fi Internet access
Rooms

The Old Santa Fe Inn has 43 intimate rooms arranged in a two-story U-shape building that wraps around a courtyard parking lot. The simplicity of the property is reflected in stylish Southwestern rooms with New Mexico artisan wood carved furniture. Fabrics and rugs are artfully inspired by Museum of New Mexico collection textiles. 1930s-era woodblock prints adorn the walls. All rooms have small, Mexican-tiled bathrooms and Cuisinart coffee-makers. Some rooms have kiva fireplaces, balconies and Jacuzzi bathtubs. Microwaves and refrigerators can be requested. Complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access and in-room digital safes are provided. All rooms are non-smoking.

Features

The Old Santa Fe Inn provides a quality experience with free perks that exceed the expectations of a small motor court hotel. The warm lobby office is open 24/7 for check-in, computer use and access to the small fitness room. Stop in bright and early for the free breakfast burrito bar with scrambled eggs, sausage, red and green chili, bacon, potatoes and homemade salsa. Return in the afternoon to a cozy library leather chair for cookies and hot chocolate by the fire. This hotel also has an outdoor picnic area.

Good location

The location was walking distance to all the attractions in Santa Fe. The room was comfortable and clean. The staff was very nice and recommended some great places to see and good places to eat. I would recommend this hotel and we will stay there next visit to Santa Fe.

Reliable venue for business

I chose this hotel because I had an important date near the hotel site and did not want to mess with parking the next day. Downtown Santa Fe can be tricky and parking is not easy. Unfortunatelly the desk clerk was not much help over the phone in helping me to find my way at 10pm. Room was a bit dark but nice and clean. I had everything I needed. A full breakfast was available and that was a bonus since I had little time in the morning. I would choose this hotel for business but not for pleasure.

Great location with extras

We loved this hotel, just a 5 minute walk to the plaza shopping and restaurants. The room was very comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful...we loved the cookies, coffee, and especially the homemade guacamole with chips every evening in the lobby. Breakfast was great! Will stay here again.

Highlight of our stay in New Mexico!

Wonderful Inn lodging. From the moment we arrived, my husband and I were welcomed and enjoyed warm hospitality. The front desk staff handled our unexpected arrival (one day early - my fault!) with good humor and kindness, and put us up in a fabulous room (King-sized bed, fireplace) for the evening at a very reasonable price. The next day, we were transferred seamlessly to our earlier-reserved Queen-bed room (also lovely). We stayed three nights (instead of two) because of the ambience, location (short walking distance to the Historic Districts and fabulous restaurants), great room, convenient parking, delicious breakfasts (included), afternoon cookies, and fabulous staff!

After a long road trip, visit the Blue Corn Cafe for a taste of Sante Fe's signature cuisine and margaritas, and great microbrewed beer!

Wonderful location, great accommodations, lackluster staff

We much enjoyed our stay, and would perhaps return. The location and the accommodations were great (only the bed a little soft for our tastes). It's terrific to be close to town yet not in one of the noisier hotels right in the center. Our misgiving was the front desk staff, who were lackluster. No warm greetings whenever we appeared, sometimes the reception bordered on indifference. But the big issue of concern is that we purchased our rooms in advance, via Orbitz, and confirmed this arrangement upon check-in, only to be told, upon checking out (and with another staff member behind the desk) that we had not yet been charged for the room. I had to go to the car and dig up the Orbitz receipt and re-verify with them that I had, indeed, paid. This staff member was the most lackluster of the bunch, and was not the least bit apologetic for his error. I think we may try another place first before we return to this inn.

Go to Clafoutis for breakfast, but note that it is closed on Sundays. Get there early, for waiting until later will assure a long line.

Perfect in so many ways!

Perfect location two blocks from the railyard, a block from the downtow, next door to government offices if your work is related to them, three blocks from Canyon Road, right beside the only greenspace in the inner city with the Santa Fe River greenway. Plenty of parking. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Quiet, clean, well appointed room. Trouble free free wireless internet. Nice breakfast. I will use this as my basecamp for future trips to Santa Fe without hesitation. Perfect place to really see the core city without need for a car.

Warm and friendly

The hotel is small and friendly, reminding us of a B&B. Breakfast is wonderful, rooms are small but more than adequate. The location is in walking distance to many restaurants, shops, and museums. I'd stay here again.

Many restaurants are on the second floor and you may have to go into an inside hall to get there.

Great stay in Santa Fe

We have visited Santa Fe numerous times and stayed at a few different hotels and have found the Old Santa Fe Inn to be the best place to stay especially for the money. The room was very clean, the staff was very helpful and the breakfast was very good! Because of its location, we parked the car and walked everywhere we wanted to go, so we didn't need to hassle with trying to find a place to park near the plaza. We will continue to stay at the Old Santa Fe Inn on our future visits.
