About

Experience old Santa Fe charm in this 200 year-old adobe B&B Inn located in the historic downtown district just a few minutes walk from the Plaza, Canyon Road, and many museums and shops. From our delicious full breakfasts and home-baked cookies and cakes at tea-time, to our authentic Southwestern ambiance, we provide a relaxed and homey atmosphere for you and your friends and family to enjoy. Our guests tell us they love our hospitality, food, location, and great value. Conde Nasts' Traveler magazine calls El Paradero the "lodging deal of Santa Fe." "Location was perfect - just right for a relaxing walk (short) to the heart of downtown, but away from the noise on a quiet side street. Terrific value with hospitality, location, and comfort all on the top of the list!" - Genevieve D, Ft. Walton Beach, FL

Authentic B&B

4.6 on November 09, 2017

I chose the least expensive room, so it’s private bath was across the hall. I had no problem with this. My only difficulty was the darkness of my room, but when I commented on it,they put higher wattage bulbs in the lamps. Not only that, when I wasn’t interested in the breakfast offered, they prepared a simple plate of eggs, toast, and fruit. I was very pleased.


A beautiful, comfortable home away from home

5 on October 26, 2017

We stayed 4 nights at this very well-run, clean, beautiful, and comfortable B & B in a perfect location. We were able to walk easily to the Plaza, Canyon Road, Railroad District, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, and great restaurants. We were also able to easily scoot out of town to Bandalier and Tent Rocks National Monuments. Our room (6) was beautifully decorated and spacious. We even had a supply of wood for our fireplace but it wasn't fireplace weather. Breakfast was delicious, with offerings of such things as gruyere spinach quiche and ham and egg breakfast sandwiches, always accompanied by fresh fruit. The breakfast room was so pretty and colorful, and there was plenty of space in the B & B to lounge about (the library, living room, and patio). Lots of folks took advantage of these lovely, comfortable spaces. Everyone at the B & B works together to make your experience comfortable, from the woman who presses your sheets SO perfectly, to Kim who serves you in the morning with a smile, to Jorge, who got on one little problem with our soap dispenser immediately, to the chef who seems to love her job, to the manager. Can't wait to return!


we are back after 10 years

4.6 on October 18, 2017

We stayed here 10 years ago to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. We had a great time then and now. This is a cozy, comfortable place with great breakfast and afternoon tea. The staff is attentive and friendly. They do not serve dinner but why should they ... it is Sante Fe.....


Nice place

4.0 on September 28, 2017

Great room with small balcony, only problem was in bed you can't see the TV becaue the foot board blocks your view, (I can't believe no one else has complained about this and they never mounted the TV on the wall). Bkf was good, wish there was more than one choice thou. And they made it sound like it was closer to the Square. Short walk, we didn't mind.


Perfect location

4.6 on September 14, 2017

Whilst El Paradero is a large B&B it always feels intimate. Sue Jett and staff are friendly and helpful, the room comfortable and characterful, the breakfast and snacks delicious, and the walk-into-town location was perfect for us.


Relaxing Stay

SF get away

4.2 on August 21, 2017

Second visit to El Paradero. We enjoy the delicious afternoon tea time and the traditional New Mexico decor. Great breakfast.


Walking distance to the railrunner and the plaza

4.4 on August 13, 2017

We took the Railrunner from Albuquerque and planned a "walking" vacation. This B&B was perfect for that: equidistant between the Railyard area and the plaza. We stayed in one of two suites in a separate building, so it was very quiet...no noise from other guests coming and going, which wonderful for a light sleeper like myself Sue and her staff served the best breakfasts by far of any B&B I've stayed in.


Great location in Santa Fe

4.4 on August 12, 2017

An enchanting, historian property within close walking distance of both the plaza area and the rail yard area of Santa Fe. Rooms are small, but quaint and well appointed. The courtyard and common areas are comfortable and lovely. The homemade breakfasts are fresh and delicious. The innkeeper/staff were warm and welcoming. A great find.


Great place to relax

5 on August 10, 2017

My husband and I loved our charming room and the delicious breakfast food, not to mention the afternoon treats-all yummy. We will definitely return to El Paradero.
