This is one of those reviews that I really had to ponder before writing. My family of four stayed here over the New Year's holiday and we really enjoyed the hotel - no question about it. My only hesitation is that it's such a great, relaxing place that I would only bring kids if they are used to traveling and enjoy an upscale, peaceful atmosphere. In my opinion, this hotel is best for couples/adults. That's not to say they aren't accommodating to kids (they are), it's just that the "retreat" ambience doesn't really lend itself to energetic kids. If you plan on bringing kids and they fall into the "extremely energetic" category, this may not be the place for you.

Having said that, we did like this place a lot. The afternoon wine & cheese was a real treat and the breakfast was, hands down, one of the best offerings (free or otherwise) I've ever seen at a hotel.

Our room was very clean, nice furnishings, big bathroom and had a nice little balcony. It was on the third floor, and there is no elevator, but we didn't mind because we definitely got our exercise.

I also got one of the best night's sleep I've ever gotten at a hotel - and this was on New Year's Eve! Those of you who are light sleepers will love the peace & quiet. On the other hand, the hustle and bustle of Santa Fe is just a few minute's walk away.

The front desk staff was wonderful - very helpful. They suggested a great restaurant for dinner and made sure we knew where the best shopping was. Overall, it was a wonderful place with a very peaceful vibe - well worth a visit.

First, we received a complimentary upgrade when we checked in. Then they gave us chocolate treats for using a FourSquare check-in.

The suite was a very generous size, sitting area with chair, couch and a lovely wood burning kiva in the corner. There was also a small fridge and a Keurig coffee machine. The room was very nicely decorated.

A breakfast comes with the room with a large number of offerings - quiche, cereal, muffins, fruits, and several more categories. They even had several vegan and gluten-free items. There is also complementary wine and cheese in the afternoons.

All this would give them a solid 4 star rating in my book. What rocketed them into one of my rare 5 star ratings is the service. If I come wandering into the lobby at 8 pm with a craving for a cold cereal and the night manager happily rummages through the kitchen to accommodate me - you get a kudos. If you don't tack an extra charge for this you get a 5 star rating!

My best friend and I finally planned a getaway without kids and hubbies! The package offered by the Inn on the Alameda suited us perfectly! We found a 5K to run on Saturday and the massages were so perfect afterward. (although if you don't train at altitude,...running a 5K at 7200 feet was so HARD!) We were very centrally located to restaurants, shopping and chocolate! We had one dinner at Chocolate Maven, fro yo at Frogurt, two different chocolate outings to CGHiggins and Kakawa House. It was all good! We shopped at Jackalope and found a couple of things and really loved Yippee Yi Yo and Doodets off the plaza. Overall, it was a great weekend and I would definitely return to the Inn on the Alameda. PS. Really enjoyed the breakfasts and the happy hour, included in the price!

Room Tip: My friend and I are very into jigsaw puzzles and our room had a nice size table that we were able to...

A last minute change of plans found us in Santa Fe celebrating our 30th anniversary. Other reviewers convinced us to give the Inn on the Alameda a try. We are SO glad! We were afraid we might be disappointed because of the many kudos....after all, how could it be that good?? But alas, all the reviewers were spot on. The soothing atmosphere was perfect and the staff exceptional. The breakfast (with newspapers), the king sized room with fireplace, public spaces, happy hour, parking, and near perfect location all combined to make this a special place indeed! We will be back - perhaps for another anniversary. Santa Fe off season is a good thing.

Recently returned from another stay at Inn on the Alameda and once again we were treated like family. Stayed there at least 25 nights and it is always a treat staying there. Charlie, an artist who tends the Happy Hour bar always remembers us and has a smile on his face welcoming us back. Adds a nice touch to a place that has alot of nice touches. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Santa Fe.

Room Tip: The Casitas are especially nice and have a nice Santa Fe vibe to them. The ones off the street such...

The Inn on the Alameda is a small inn about three blocks from the Plaza and one block from the start of Canyon Rd. The rooms were nice and reasonably priced, the staff were friendly. There is a great breakfast (included with the rooms) in the morning, with a terrific range of foods included gluten-free and vegan items. There is also a happy hour in the afternoon with free snacks, wine, and beer. Both of these take place in the Inn's common area, an inviting room with a kiva fireplace. There is also a large (and free) parking lot. We really enjoyed staying here and will stay again on our next trip.

We stayed at the Inn in December with another couple. The inn was very clean, the staff were terrific, the breakfast was a pleasant surprise and it was a great experience. We all felt the staff went out of their way to make sure we had a great experience.
They didn't advertise the fact that a gluten free breakfast entree is served daily, along with GF muffins and breads, which is a big deal if you cannot injest gluten.
This is a charming place and we will return.
Thanks, INN ON THE ALAMEDA for making my husband's birthday trip so special.
