nice place

Most of the hotel staff were very friendly. The hotel restaurant's food was only so-so, and the wait people seemed crabby. The location of the hotel was perfect, and the ability to use the hotel shuttle was valuable.

Location and Convience

We chose this hotel because it gave easy access to the things we wanted to do: attend the Santa Fe Opera, tour Canyon Road and Old Town. A bonus was their free shuttle to Old Town. The Lodge provided a nice breakfast buffet, restaurant and bar. Their restaurant balcony overlooked the Santa Fe Memorial Cemetery and distant mountains. Lovely. The Lodge was also a destination place for weekend entertainment and business conferences.

There were a lot of weddings at this hotel the weekend we stayed. So staff were very busy and service was a bit slow. Hot tub was not hot enough. Parking was not easy due to weddings and there was a flamenco show at the hotel as well.

Spacious, well-kept, convenient, great value.

This was my second time at The Lodge. It is on St. Francis perhaps 1 mile or a 20 min. walk from town. I liked being outside the busyness of Santa Fe. It was easy to drive anywhere. The room, ground floor, was quiet, huge, southwestern style. View to the mtns. with large window and flower garden right outside. Pool and fitness also there, did not use. Staff was always helpful and the breakfast (French Toast with caramelized bananas) was fab. The rate was below $100. Cannot match that for these facilities.

bad ; p

Staff nice and friendly but as for hotel, its a good location but hot tub was broken, the swimming pool was filthy and slimy green. They definitely need new mattresses, you could feel the springs on your body and was awakened by the bonging of the mattress springs, very uncomfortable and the linens are very old. The bathroom tub, would have liked to soak in tub but tub stopper was stripped out. No mini fridge in room but they could bring one up to your room at a cost of $10 daily. Overall very rundown hotel.

It feels like it's abandoned

I spend there a weekend with my girlfriend for our first year anniversary. For the weekend we had reserved a traditional 1 kind bed room. Since the room was on the ground floor and the hotel looked kind of not busy I asked the lady in the front desk if there is any possibility of upgrading in a room with a/better view. She told me that there are two other rooms available but could be dirty and she had to check, or we could upgrade to a junior suite for $30/day more. Upon checking the rooms and finding that were dirty she decided to upgrade us to the junior suite for no charge. That was very kind of her and deeply appreciated. So, we got the keys and off to the room. When we entered the room we were happy with it. It had a lot of space, it looked nice, it had a big (but old) TV, a fridge and a microwave. But, after looking around we discovered that the swing door guard lock was broken. Actually, the whole door around it was broken. It looked like as if someone had it locked and someone else broke the door to get in the room. Also, the one night stand light was not working. Of course I immediately went to the front desk and told them about it. I didn't really want to be charged for a broken door and light that wasn't my fault. The lady was kind enough to give us another junior suite. But still, there were some issues with the new room too. First of all, the new room had no table (the other room did have a table), the fridge was a LOT smaller, the nightstand lights were different styles where the one was kinda broken and the other was missing a light bulb, and at the bathroom there was a huge hole on the ceiling cause they never replaced the lamp that was there. But still, we decided to keep it and try to have a nice weekend. Now, overall the hotel gave me the sense of abandoned. It looked like that the management didn't want to spend any money on fixing anything. Maybe they have decided to use the hotel until everything is broken, make as much money as possible, and then demolish it to build a new one or something? For example: our room was in kind of poor condition (as described above), the paint on the walls in many places around the hotel was cracking, the pool was dirty, the hot tub out of order, a water fountain was out of order too, some lights around the hotel were broken (glass) etc. Don't get me wrong, it is a beautiful hotel. But the management just decided to not fix anything that goes bad? Also, when I choose a hotel with less starts I do expect to have less amenities, and therefore a lower price. But I can't accept low quality. Even a one star hotel that can only offer a bed and a toilet, I expect this bed and toilet to be clean and not dirty/broken etc.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

If you have a vertical ID, DON'T go to Santa Fe. My girlfriend is from Wisconsin and turned 21 a few months ago. Her ID is vertical and even though she is 21 she was refused to enter bars/clubs etc. She had to go online, ask for a replacement ID, print the temporary ID and then go out. After a little bit of research (we can be wrong) we thing that this law applies ONLY to New Mexico IDs but still, the bars don't like vertical IDs of other states too.
