During my stay in Wasaga last summer we came across this gem! The location is prime, the prices are fantastic and the owners are absolutely wonderful! When we discovered it, we were staying at another motel much further down the strip, that was nearly 3 times the price. We would pass by the Sante Fe every time we walked to the strip, and every time we did my boyfriend and I would comment on how great the location was and how much character the motel had. It has a quaint, removed feeling like your cottaging in the country, but yet you're in the heart of the action, giving you the best of both worlds really. When the owners saw us checking out the property they didn't hesitate to give us a big warm wave and an invite over to see the grounds. The showed us all the rooms, the antiques they had collected and they even offered us a drink and a seat to take a load off and relax. They couldn't have been any more friendly and accommodating. They told us what their summer had been like thus far and it sounds like this is the kinda place where your specific needs are met, as they'll tailor your stay to suit your needs, and be happy to do so. The owner told us that he's happy to drive people around and that he's built/adapted things on his property for special events etc. Call them and inquire, if you have special needs or requests, I'm sure they'll be happy to fulfill them. From our experiences in the area, you'll be hard pressed to find owners that are that involved, and hard pressed to find a better location and price!

A quaint little motel just steps away from the beach. The owners, Art and Brenda go out of their way to make you feel welcome and make your stay comfortable. The motel has a lot of character and the rooms are spotless. Brenda gets the bomb fire going every night and everyone just chills getting to know one another enjoying great conversations. Rates are very reasonable for one of the best locations on the beach. This is a great place to stay for all ages. Will definitely be back!!!

We do NOT recommend this Hotel at all! No showers in the rooms, the shower room area was black with mould, 2 inch gap in door to our room (a mouse could have crawled in). Room was so small, had a hard time fitting one person in the bathroon, no TV, outdated furniture, very small bed, not clean at all!
As for the service, the owners were partying in the office room drinking beer and smoking cigarettes! The woman came to the front office bare foot! Everything seemed very unsanitary and unsafe! Everything about this place was BAD! HORRIBLE experience!

Room Tip: Make sure you really look around.

My boyfriend and I planned a weekend trip to Wasaga Beach and had originally booked at the Beachfront at Wasaga. Without going into too much detail here, we were lucky and smart to cancel our reservation there after we showed up. Not wanting to have to go all the way home again, we walked up the road a little bit and stumbled upon the Santa Fe. Jackpot! The owners, Art and Brenda, are so sweet and hospitable, the grounds are well maintained and inviting, and the rooms are clean as a whistle. We also noticed that there were some people staying there with children, and I would definitely say it is family friendly - nice BBQ's to use, clean yard, and a nice fire pit to toast up some goodies. Give them a call (that's what they prefer) and book with them. These people are in business to help others discover and enjoy Wasaga Beach, not just to make money.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the main office are quieter as they are farther from the main road, but they are all pretty quiet considering the craziness going on at the other places across the road. Also, "The Nest" is a great room for a couples getaway - separate from the other rooms and looks like a nice room for a romantic getaway.
