Unexpected Roadside Gem: “Old style strip motel with Santa Fe style architecture. We were invited to a wedding at that site. Easy to make reservations around the event date. The facility offered a unique selection of rooms. The wedding on site was well organized, more than expected. There was a wonderful restaurant right next door with tasty food at excellent value. Access to downtown Santa Fe was simple. This site is more than expected and I recommend it without any hesitation. Great overall value excellent place to stay while in Santa Fe”
