Positive Reviews

Handy location close to downtown

This motel won praise from guests for its location on the edge of downtown Santa Fe. It put travelers within walking distance of the rail yard district and downtown attractions like the historic Santa Fe Plaza and Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, all just a few blocks away. Moreover, there were several dining options, convenience stores and gas stations just a short walk away. As US Route 285 was within a half-mile, the motel also offered easy access to outdoor recreation areas like Santa Fe National Forest, about one hour's drive away.

Cheap and cheerful

On the whole, guests mentioned that the rooms were no frills but more than satisfactorily clean and comfortable for the budget-conscious traveler. With fridges and microwaves as standard, many reviewers remarked that the rooms were fairly well-equipped. Due to its affordable rates, guests often said the motel represented decent value for money. The free Wi-Fi and free morning coffee were a bonus for many visitors as was the outdoor swimming pool.

Friendly staff

Plenty of guests spoke highly of the customer service, often describing personnel as friendly, pleasant and accommodating. Many reviewers experienced a smooth check-in.

Negative Reviews

Some criticism of rooms

Critics sometimes said the property would benefit from a revamp to tackle issues like marked walls, aging mattresses, outdated decor and tired-looking furniture. Some guests felt the rooms were quite small too.

Parking lot was limited

The parking lot had limited spaces, which were distributed on a first come first served basis which occasionally caused headaches for latecomers who had to search for alternative parking.

Nuisance noises

Occasional traffic noise and noise from adjacent rooms was sometimes a nuisance for light sleepers, who blamed thin walls for their predicament. Noisy air-conditioning was also reported in some rooms.
