I thought a lot about what I would say about this B&B while we were there and on the way home. As a professional travel writer I looked at it very objectively assuming I would find something that wasn't perfect about it..BUT I could not. We stayed six nights...loved room 12 with two beds and balcony. The afternoon tea time was outstanding with homemade pie, cakes, cookies, and oh yes, tea. But the crown jewel was breakfast every morning...UNbelievably wonderful and different each day. Staff was MOST helpful in every way. Walk to the plaza was easy. Wish I owned stock in this most comfortable, charming place! Hubby says, "Best place we ever stayed." Nuff said. Are there six stars?
We found El Paradero by chance, stayed two nights. Delightful place, with comfortable beds, fabulous breakfast, free wifi and parking, free afternoon tea with great desserts (Mexican flan! etc), and wonderful homey public spaces to hang out in -- a living room with books and puzzles, a library with comfy reading chairs and computer with printer -- all decorated in lively colors and eclectic patterns and extremely welcoming. Our room was a little small and dark (much made up for by opening onto the enclosed courtyard) but I looked into others at cleaning time and there are some gorgeous roomy light-filled rooms. Great location, an easy walk to major Plaza attractions but set off on a quiet side street and very close to the Saturday farmers' market and the bike/walk rail trail near there. Sue was terrific, helped us find a hotel for our next stop, the other guests were interesting, and we felt very much at home there. We highly recommend it.
Such an amazing place for the price! Leslie and Mitch could not have been better hosts. They gave us several recommendations of things to do/see in town, prepared us evening cocktails, and of course outstanding breakfasts! Overall, I was extremely impressed with the service, the room, the grounds, and the food. We are already planning our next trip back!
This was our first time visiting Santa Fe, and I think we lucked out in snagging a room for two nights at El Paradero. The location couldn't be better. It's close enough to walk to the the galleries, restaurants, and attractions but far enough to be removed from the center of town. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food, fantastic! We really loved tea time and the treats every afternoon. The inn is so charming and relaxing. We loved it and will definitely return!
I'm o.k. with a little unique or quirky look, but soft goods and accessories need to be updated - or 'freshened' up…. breakfast was lacking, a continental breakfast with tamales. same items both mornings. nice exterior and landscaping
My wife and I had a delightful four days as the guests of Mitch and Leslie. The desert setting was quiet and serene, and a comfortable distance from all the activities of Santa Fe. The service was excellent and the room was spacious and comfortable. Mitch and Leslie are committed to creating a place which is both comfortable and sustainable, hence the geothermal heating and the solar arrays. We highly recommend this place.
My husband & I went down for the wine and chile festival and stayed here, Sue had lots of great info , rooms were darling and the breakfast was delish! Would definitely stay there again....sharon & johnny jones
Our room was adorable & had many unique architectural features, such as the incredible mosaic bath tub. Strelza offered us the warmest of welcomes and filled us in on local history. She spent a lot of time with us customizing a map so we could get the most out of our short visit. Pueblo Bonito is a gem !
This is the perfect place to stay when visiting the Santa Fe area. The rooms are beautiful, well kept, and private. The environment is enchanting and the owners are a delight. The breakfasts are filling and delicious and they are very accommodating to dietary needs. Why stay in a traditional hotel when you can stay at this B&B. The owners are super conscious of the environment --the ranch is solar powered and geo-thermal heated. My husband and I could not ask for a better vacay and we have Leslie and Mitch to thank for their hospitality and positive experience, I felt that they really went out of their way to make us feel at home without losing the sense of privacy you need sometimes. The little details that we experienced throughout the stay elevated our moments to positive memories. Absolutely Recommend.
Inn on the Paseo is only a short few blocks from the Plaza in Santa Fe. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Breakfast is always delicious and the staff is very friendly and helpful.
I booked this B&B simply because it was the only available lodging for my travel dates that was located close to the plaza area; walking distance ( a few blocks). The facility was unique and full of local history. We stayed in the Laguna room which was a bit small but there were three of us. It would be perfect for 1 or 2. Amy was a great hostess and provided good information on the area. Breakfast was great; the tamales were excellent and the dining area was bright and very pleasant. Stelsa was wonderful; we had great conversation. We still owe her a song!
Walking in the door, you immediately feel at home. The owner takes special pride in everything about this B&B! From the personal and helpful attention, to the authentic decor, comfy beds, and cleanliness. The full, hot breakfasts are truly a wonderful state to the day and you can even purchase her cookbook! For a luxurious experience at a fraction of the cost, book with confidence. We've already booked again for a month from now!
first time staying at a bed and breakfast. Rancho Gallina was such a unexpected , wonderful surprise! the location, setting and owners were a delight. we had such a relaxing experience and Mitch served the most amazing quiche for our last breakfast (I am still talking about it!). Leslie and Mitch were perfect hosts and it was quite obvious that their number one goal was to make all their guests happy.
Inn of the Turquoise Bear is a very impressive property with gracious hosts. Breakfast was tastey and varied with beverages and light snacks available most hours. The room my wife and I shared was small with no a/c. A fan was provided and windows could be opened making the room comfortable. Not sure what you do when you need heat in the room. The building is 150-years old so allowances must be made. Overall not a bad stay but don't think I'd go back, though many guests do return as we met several returning customers during our stay.
San Francisco (7) was beautiful, spacious, and QUIET! There was a very festive wedding at the adjoining facility, and we wouldn't have known had we not been sitting on the Inn's patio. However, we enjoyed the music while we were outside!! The jetted tub was a marvelous way to relax at the end of the day. GET THE BATH SALT FROM THE OFFICE!!! The breakfast was simply outstanding. Excellent New Mexico fare. A little disappointed that the fireplace didn't work...
Both innkeepers were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the area. The fruit at breakfast was one of the freshest and most varied we have had while staying at a B&B. The Kachina room had sitting space and closet space. Both of us had room to move around and we both enjoyed the tub.
Sue and staff go above and beyond to make your stay a very pleasant experience. The breakfast is lovely, they serve tea and yummiest in the afternoon, and there are cookies for a snack in the evening! They post a schedule of happenings each day and are so helpful and knowledgeable of the area.
It's not often that you can find no flaws whatsoever with a place you have stayed. Truly our stay at the Inn of the Delta was a delight from start to finish. All of the charm of a B&B with complete privacy in your own suite. Our room, the San Felipe, was huge!! And impeccably decorated. Beautiful bathroom with jacuzzi tub. Kitchenette area. The suite even had a beautiful entry. Breakfast in the main house was homemade and delicious. Our hostess was so warm and welcoming. I highly recommend staying here. We will be back and will choose the Inn over Santa Fe accomodations. Excellent value.
