Having stayed at many B&Bs, this was average in all respects. Perhaps being off season has something to do with it. Not disappointed, but not amazed either.

A very comfortable, quiet, retreat, though almost in the city. The breakfast was outstanding, with fruit and coffee cake served before the hot item. Employees were pleasant. The sample lavender products in the bathroom were an unexpected and especially nice touch!

We stayed for 2 days on our honeymoon. The staff were fantastic, the room delightful. We came wanting to relax for a couple of days and the place was perfect. We'd love to return and will be putting Albuquerque on the route to go back.

My husband and I just finished our sixth visit to Los Poblanos in 15 years. We looked at other places to celebrate our 25th anniversary, but we are always so happy with our stay there that we could not see a good reason to spend it anywhere else. We've found that we go to Albuquerque not so much for Albuquerque, but for Los Poblanos. I can't imagine a more beautiful and restful atmosphere than what LP provides-the lavender fields, beautiful gardens, huge old trees, a view of the mountains over the lily pond (I suggest at night from the porch swing out front for that, especially!) It's not just the buildings or surroundings, though, that makes Los Poblanos what it is. The staff has always been so friendly and accommodating, helping us get a reservation-even in a couple of different rooms to make it work-on dates we needed, making the move to a different room absolutely stress free, treating us as though we are their invited personal guest, and taking care of every detail to make the stay a pleasure. We especially look forward to and enjoy the breakfast part of the stay. The food is always excellent. They use a lot of local products in the chef's take on a standard dish, resulting in things like the best eggs Benedict ever created....or pound cake French toast on another morning. It's just normal to be greeted or spoken to by the other guests there. The surroundings seem to affect everyone and make them feel like they are part of the Los Poblanos "family." I've stayed in some beautiful hotels all over the United States, but I don't think anything equals Los Poblanos as not just a bed and breakfast but a wonderful destination.

The tree-lined drive up to the Inn is a mood-inducing welcome to the heartfelt people, purpose and place of Los Poblanos. The lotus garden, farm store, white peacocks and so many more unexpected pleasures made a night at the Inn one of the best decisions I made on my vacation.

The whole experience was very comfortable. Bed was great. The facilities were more than expected. Food was healthy and we walked along Rio Grande.

Los Poblanos was a lovely place to stay. We were greeted as we drove into the driveway by one of the resident peacocks and that was just the beginning of enjoying all of the natural beauty that surrounds the farm. We knew that the food was going to be delicious, and it was, and the service in the diningroom was both very professional and personal. One could tell that all of the employees really enjoy working at the Inn. On our full day in Albuquerque we borrowed bikes from the Inn and enjoyed the miles of bike paths that criss-cross the city. The Inn is located in a magical part of the city and we only wished that we could have stayed longer.

What a wonderful place! The room, the dining, the bikes, the picnic ride we took, the badminton, the beautifully kept grounds, the giant lilypads and the lavender. We'll be back!

We so enjoyed our visit to the Inn and farm. Very convenient, great value and so comfortable. The Inn arranged our hot air balloon ride with Rainbow Ryders- and were very fortunate to have a fantastic experience. I would return- the animals, the Rio Grande close by- the bikes and of course the staff. And how can you not love a lavender farm. We did not get to enjoy dinner since it is served only Wednesday through Sunday, yet, the breakfasts were excellent. An interesting experience occured at breakfast, when even though the meal was included in our rate, we were presented with a bill showing us the cost of the breakfast with a request that we sign a zero balance bill, with an option to tip. I felt that the exemplary service, atmosphere of this historic inn was lowered a bit or unprofessional, or perhaps unusual for the caliber of the establishment. I didn't get the point of the signature slip other than to tip the person who served part of our breakfast. Just not sure what was being acconplished, in this 1st time ever expereince. I would however, stronyly recoomend and would return- having a conversation with the innkeeper as to the point that was being made....

Los Poblanos is one of the most charming places I've ever stayed. A serene and peaceful oasis that is still close to Albuquerque's attractions. The staff is attentive, the food sublime. You will feel pampered and rested after your stay. A lovely gem of a place that you shouldn't miss.

We did a tour of the Southwest for vacation this year. Lost Poblanos farm was by far the best place we stayed during our trip. We were so sad that we only booked one night, but plan to stay there again soon. The room was adorable, with antique wooden furniture and hardwood floors. The bathroom was clean and beautifully tiled, and stocked with lavender items from their farm. We referred to the bed as "the marshmallow" and had the best night's sleep there. Just when you think it couldn't get any better, BREAKFAST WAS AMAZING! Organic sausage, poached eggs that are obviously farm fresh, and home style grits were fantastic. Make sure to take a walk around the farm and check out their farm shop for lavender products. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This inn came highly recommended and fully lived up to its good reputation.

We recently spent two nights at Los Poblanos and had a lovely time. The staff was cordial and responsive, our room (in the Meem cottages) was clean, well appointed and had an extremely comfortable bed. Breakfasts were delicious and definitely not run-of-the mill. There is a peaceful "out in the country" feeling but Old Town Albuquerque and downtown are within easy reach. The grounds and gardens are lovely and the historic buildings contain fascinating antiques and artifacts. There are many little hideaways to sit and enjoy a glass of wine. We highly recommend Los Poblanos and look forward to returning!

We couldn't have chosen a better place to celebrate our anniversary! Los Poblanos is a world away from the nearby city Albuquerque. Serene, charming, historical. The entire staff are dedicated to welcoming you and making your stay memorable. Rooms are meticulously restored. Dining is world-class, prepared with on-site seasonal produce and meat. What isn't produced on the farm is gotten from local organic farms. Memorable! We'll stay again!

Lovely grounds. Comfortable, luxurious room. Excellent, healthy food. Pricey. No evening appetizers and wine included, as they once were. A bit of an elitist attitude has meandered into this laid back place, which saddens me. Signs now warn visitors to stay away (part of the old charm was meeting local folks who buy produce there and sang the Inn and Farm's praises) and we overheard the younger brother and sister of the family who own the inn decrying locals and events they used to host, e.g., part of the annual Lavendar Festival. Definitely put a damper on our anniversary dinner.

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing your comments about your recent stay at the Inn. We assure you that all comments and feedback are taken very seriously by our staff, and aid us in creating a better experience for our guests. Without the support of our community, we would never be where we are today. We try to create an environment that is as private and quiet for our inn guests as possible. We know that Los Poblanos is a fun place to visit, so have kept many parts of the property open to the public - such as the lavender fields and farm, the front gardens, and maintaining the weekly organic farm produce pick up on the property. However, if you aren't staying at the Inn, you may not know your way around the room and buildings. We have had some challenges with non-guests accidentally looking into bedroom windows, or walking into wedding ceremonies, so we want to help visitors understand the areas that they can tour, so they don't disturb the guests. Please be assured that we will share this review with our staff and owners, so that they may be more aware of their professional discussions, and strive to create the quiet and peaceful environment that our guests pay to enjoy. We hope to see you again soon, and please feel free to contact me directly should you have any further comments. With best regards, Nancy Kinyanjui, Inn Manager

Everything about our stay was magical. Our room, our breakfast, our walk around the grounds where met several of the farm workers gathering eggs, milking goats and tending the grounds. We shopped in the Market Store and took home some wonderful momentos of our stay. A truly wonderful stay.

Just returned from a - truly - wonderful stay. The inn rooms are charming and large, and also have the kind of amenities that made us feel especially comfortable. The inn staff are friendly and accommodating. This was one of the most relaxing places I have ever stayed.

We loved the 1930's decor and the beautiful gardens. The food was exquisite & the staff went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. They even upgraded our room for free. We also got a big kick out of the farm. I must say, bottle feeding the baby goats was the highlight of my trip. We're already dreaming of returning again some day.

Beautiful inn on a large farm adjacent to the Rio Grande River ten minutes from downtown Albuquerque. Well appointed rooms in an atmosphere of total relaxation. The food rivals that of any great food anywhere with much of it local from the farm. Service and friendliness were outstanding.

This was so special. The room was super clean and very inviting. All of the staff were so polite and friendly. I got to walk around the farm area and talk to the cow and the goats and pigs as well as the albino peacock, Albert. The "farm store" was so interesting and the girl there was very helpful in every way, even letting me know where to get a bottle of the green chile beer that I had the night before. I couldn't ask for a more pleasant experience, but also unique with the farm atmosphere. I would love to visit again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the inn. We were in the Greeley 1 room, which has a separate living room, kitchen area, bedroom and large bathroom. It was nice having the extra room as we stayed 3 nights. It is located adjacent to the beautiful rose garden. It was a very quiet room - we were not at all bothered by the peacocks. The inn feels very isolated from the busy town, which makes for a peaceful stay, and yet it is within a couple of miles of Old Town so is quite convenient. We were a bit concerned that it would be too far from the main sites, but that wasn’t the case. The inn and grounds are beautiful and a real joy to explore. It was hard to tear ourselves away to visit the attractions of Albuquerque! The staff was very helpful with restaurant and siteseeing recommendations, and were as nice as they could be. We had excellent dinners at Seasons, and Casa Vieja in the adjacent town of Corrales. The breakfasts were some of the best we’ve ever had at a B&B. We were fortunate to enjoy 3 of them! The ingredients are from the farm, so are fresh and very flavorful. We especially appreciated the healthy preparations. The main dish was accompanied by fresh fruit, yogurt, homemade granola, delicious homemade breads and cakes, and organic coffee and tea. We were not hungry for several hours afterwards. You can’t go wrong staying here. We will certainly return the next time we are in Albuquerque.

This place is really remarkable - an oasis in the desert to say the least. If you are able to attend a Dining Series event I highly recommend it. The food, company, and service are unbeatable. The property itself is beautiful and well kept - the smell of lavender in the air on summer mornings is magical.

The rooms are inspired, the staff is ever helpful, the organic farm from which breakfast and dinner are plucked that day is heavenly, and the architecture is remarkable. Weather is perfect all year round, with crisp mornings and warm afternoons allowing guests to wonder through beautiful gardens graced with peacocks, roses and blue, blue skies. Los Poblanos hosted by wedding; it is a favorite destination for dinner and a perfect romantic get-away, gathering place with good friends, or hide-away when I want tranquility. It has a special place in my heart.

We are New Mexican locals and our stay at the Los Poblanos Inn was not just a treat, but a complete getaway. The property is like nothing else in the city, and very refreshing yet relaxing. The breakfast served at the inn was fresh and delicious; we had an amazing time during our stay.

This was a surprise trip planned for me by my husband. I am recovering from knee surgery and this was the best place to relax and recover. Breakfast was farm fresh and tasty, and I enjoyed sitting in the colorful courtyard. I feel better already!

Los Poblanos was a dream come true....first of all the staff is just amazing, they are at your beck and call offering goodies and daily trip ideas. The surroundings at Los Poblanos transport you to another country...it reminded my husband of our trip to Naples Italy. The grounds are covered with fun spots to sit, relax and enjoy an afternoon glass of wine. You could not ask for a better location, Los Poblanos is tucked in along the Rio Grande River which offers several gorgeous walking and biking trails to choose from. We loved the near by fine dining options, and even better, had our last meal prepared at the Inn by Chef Jonathon, which is still to date the best meal we have ever had! Los Poblanos was such an amazing experience...a place to visit as much as possible!

A most interesting experience. This large property gives a feeling of space. It's construction during the the 30's shows the impact of the WPA . Like other hotels of the period sound insulation is not perfect but the art work on our walls was a constant source of interest. Service was good ,willingly answered questions, but was never hovering

Los Poblanos is a wonderful respit, away from the noise and busyness of the world. Whether strolling the beautiful gardens or sitting by the fire, it is a great getaway.

I have,literally, visited hundreds of B&Bs over the past 37 years--and there are dozens I would like to revisit at some point. However,I consider Los Poblanos a B&B "Mecca" that ranks among my all-time favorites. From the inn's lavendar fields to the scenic views of the Sandies Mtns., the grounds and environs are simply spectacular. Guests at this outstanding inn are treated as honored guests, the attention-to-detail is amazing, guest rooms and the common areas are tasteful as well as welcoming, and breakfast is a gourmet's delight. Without a moment's hesitation, I can proclaim Los Poblanos as an inn that is in the very top echelon of my all-time favorite B&Bs--one I am anxious to experience again for a longer period of time.

We have stayed at Los Poblanos twice and plan to make this an annual trip. Fresh Organic produce and eggs gathered that morning make up our fantastic breakfast. Service is second to none and the property is full of history and art. Located of a main street yet it feels like a private sanctuary. You sleep peacefully with the surround of fresh lavender. Los Poblanos makes all their shampoos, shower gels, soaps and lotions using the abundant lavender grown in their fields.
