My hubby booked us in for three nights, sight unseen. The room was a large one with comfortable beds. It was fresh and clean. Lots of parking. We were a bit concerned that the neighborhood seemed to be using the parking lot as a shortcut between streets. Lots of people were walking through the parking lot who were not guests....

Useful tips on where to go from the friendly staff and the room was clean. The inn is only a 10 minute drive to the plaza. There's a grocery store across the street and there are plenty of restaurants nearby too. The pool and hot tub area was busy with families because of spring break but a soothing soak after...

The best things about this motel are the cleanliness, the staff, and the pool. The bed was VERY comfortable! The reason I gave it a 4 rating is because it is older looking, the ice machine didn't work, the microwave cord wasn't plugged in because it didn't reach the outlet, and the room was a bit on the small side....

Ever heard of "don't judge a book by its cover"? Well, this is a prime example of that phrase. Looks old and worn-down on the outside but on the inside everything has veen updated, comfortable queen-sized beds. Do know that this is located on a major street so you may want to ask for a room towards the back. The...

This ABVI motel is great, from the minute you are warmly greeted at Reception to the super, hot, shower and comfy bed! The rooms have new furnishings, the large hanging TV offers a wide selection of channels, and the inn's location makes it convenient to about anything in Santa Fe and to I-25. A small refrigerator is handy for perishables,...

Not Friendly / NO HOT TUB I booked a Ski Trip to Santa Fe, I had stayed at Lamplighter in years past. I booked it largely on indoor pool and Hot Tub (price). I called the day prior to arrival to confirm rooms and arrival. I asked specifically about microwave, hair dryer and fridge, by request of girls. I was...

Stayed in Room #206 for one night. Paid $60. Clean room with comfortable King-sized bed. Small tub/ shower. Very noisy room as we could hear the people talking on either side of us. This went on all night. WIFI was abysmal. Just logging on to Gmail took over 5-minutes. Among the slowest WIFI bandwidths I have ever encountered on the...

The room was clean. The breakfast was ok. Their coffee, & breakfast had room for improvement. They had a ping pong table- which was fun, but they gave you only one ball, not even a real ping pong ball? I really loved the indoor pool, with gorgeous plants and a hot tub! There is a small, nice outdoor walk to...
