Even during Indian Market you can find a motel for less than $200 a night in downtown Santa Fe, really. At between $149 and $169 per night, Garrett's Desert Inn is a bargain during Indian Market (much less off season). This downtown, spacious, motel is...More

Stayed here for Indian Market in August. Great location. A little dated, but location and price make up for any inconveniences (like not-so-great AC.) The pool is a wonderful respite from the mid-day heat and fatigue from shopping. Close enough to the Plaza to go...More

The best thing about this hotel/motel is the l-word, as above. Take a step outside, turn right, and within 5 minutes you're in Santa Fe's main square. The other thing was the friendly and efficient staff at reception. The rooms are of adequate size but...More

I am confused too. But, I assure you, that woman was not me. We stayed one night and just had some bugs and the front desk was not very friendly. That was all, otherwise, our stay was fine.
