New Mgmt makes for fantastic SAGE INN stay
We just spent 4days,March 23-26, at the SAGE INN in NM. Had absolutly lovely time here. The new room was lovely, bright and colorful. we wanted to be closer to front of bldg. We spoke with staff at desk, she immediately got manager, Patrick. He was fantastic in dealing with us,great people skills and very professional. We were moved into the location at front.
Breafast is served in a beautiful area with beamed ceilings and roaring fire in the kiva fireplace. Absolutely huge breafast,eggs,ceral,juices coffee etal.
We walked to central plaza in about 15 min. Nice heated pool.Lots of parking. This is a real gem in town and best of all is the professionalism of the management(patrick) and the staff. They listen and give good info on where to go and of course where to eat. Thank you all for a wonderful stay.
Perfect for Family
We stayed with our 3 chidren at the Sage Inn and loved the rate, the staff, the small pool, the location especially. The breakfast is nothing to write home about but it served our family well. The Maid staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable.
Note Tomasita's restaurant was great as was ZIA Diner
Real Find for True Travelers
Stayed at the Sage Inn as part of a killer package on Travelocity. My expectations were not very high, since I had paid so little, so I was VERY pleasantly surprised by my stay. Very convenient, comfortable, and clean. Pleasant staff. Nice continental breakfast. Picky people could probably find things to complain about, but if you're like me, you're on vacation to be OUT of the room, not in. Was an EXCELLENT value and its closeness to the Plaza made it so convenient. Highly recommended.
Great location. Bargain Price!
I stayed at the Sage Inn in March 2006 for 5 days and was very pleased. I basically got a spacious,clean, two queen room for a cheap motel price! Not luxurious, and a little out of date, but other than that, perfect! No reason for complaints since I wanted to spend my days exploring and not sitting in the hotel room. You can walk to the plaza, restaurants and shops in Old Town Santa Fe. Also, breakfast was really good (fresh bagels, baked goods, fruits, cereals, yoghurt) for a budget hotel.
The only thing I didn't like was that wireless internet was only accessible in the lobby and not, as promised on the website, in every room. Also, stay away if you watch a lot TV since there seems to be a problem with the reception (only 12 channels anyway)
But, if you there for getting to see the city and/or surrounding areas and don't want to spend more than $40, this is the place to go!
Close to the Plaza
We spent two nights at the Sage Inn. We liked several things about this place. It was very close to the plaza area, shops and restaurants, but not noisy. They also have a very nice continental breakfast and a nice dining room to enjoy the breakfast. It is undergoing renovations on one building, but the building we stayed in was quiet and nicely appointed.
They have an excellent 3-ring binder in the lobby with menus for almost every local restaurant/bar in Santa Fe. This was very helpful when looking for someplace to dine. There is also a large binder with activities listed and their lobby has many helpful sightseeing flyers and maps.
They also have two computers with high speed internet just off the lobby if you need to check email or print out a boarding pass. They have a small pool, but honestly with snow flurries we opted not to take a dip this time.
Those people who report negatives have to be nuts!
Only those who insist on being treated with the finest of luxuries starting with 1000 threadcount Egyptian cotton sheets that are changed hourly would fail to be delighted with the Sante Fe Sage Inn. The location alone (walking distance to the Plaza and directly across the street from the Sante Fe Farmer's Market) is worth twice the price. The staff is incredibly polite and helpful. The breakfast might not be made to order, but the coffee, juice, bagels, sweetrolls, fruit, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, etc. available FREE every morning is a fine way to start the day! The rooms are tastefully decorated, the beds are comfortable, the showers have plenty of hot water and plenty of water pressure, and even the free toiletries are first quality. I would have expected to pay considerably more for much less 5 or 6 miles further out Cerillos Road.
The only thing negative I can think to say is that the Farmer Brothers coffee that they supply in the rooms sucks! Big deal! I went over to the Jackalope gift shop attached to the motel and bought a packet of pinon coffee for $2.00 that will last the whole stay!
I am writing this after the 5th night of a 7 night stay. This place is GREAT, and I recommend it without any hesitation at all!
We wanted to get away for the weekend and found this motel online. We had realistic expectations as to what to expect for a budget motel and were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were clean with all the ammenities one needed.The room was a bit small but this was not an issue for us as we were more interested in site seeing and shopping then spending time at the motel. We found the Desk Staff to be professional,polite and very helpful with directions and dinner recommendations. The complimentary breakfast in the lobby was exactly as advertised on their website.We would stay here again.
Nice for the price
We got in quite late, and most of the rooms were gone. We humped our luggage upstairs (no elevator...this is a motel with rooms facing parking), only to find the tv fuzzy and not working. HOWEVER, the night manager quickly got us a different room (from a 2 double bed to a single King...) on the first floor. The rooms were clean and relatively simple, with a modest effort made at decorating them in the Santa Fe style. We slept the night away and all was good. We paid about $75, which is quite reasonable given it's proximity to the square in Santa Fe (a short drive...4-5 mins). Keep in mind this is a very expensive resort type town, and a family or a couple on a budget would do well to stay here!
The lobby and breakfast area were nicely decorated, and we saw large groups of retirement age folks enjoying themselves. I was surprised to see the same responsive night manager working his butt off to make the guest's breakfast's pleasant. I wish I would've gotten his name, but I thanked him for taking care of us the night before. All in all, this was a pretty positive experience, even with the shaky start.
Great Value, Clean Motel, Friendly Staff
We stayed at this location for three nights at the end of April. I got an AMAZING rate ($25/day) at this location through one of those on-line discount travel web site, where it was listed as a 2.5 star property. The motel is centrally located, an easy 15-minute walk to the plaza. Whole foods is less than a block away. The staff was very friendly. Our room was clean, newly decorated and came with bottled water and basic toiletries. The FREE breakfast in the mornning was great. We would have a banana, juice and yogurt with granola to start us off. We used the free internet several times and had just a minimal wait to access a terminal. We saw a mix of families and couples staying here. Plenty of parking. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to a friend or a family member.
I'll be traveling, to Santa Fe area, with four adults and four young people between 14 and 17 years old. I'm interested in a suite, or two, for a week in June 2008. What is available, at what cost? I've stayed at El Rey and loved it. I need info to make a decision.
Re: Group accomidations
Hi Joyce -- I live in Santa Fe, but also work for a local hotel called the Sage Inn. We have rooms with two queen beds available for $90 to $120 per night, depending on the specific dates of the stay and the number of occupants per room. If you would prefer having a suite rather than a couple of hotel rooms, I would definitely check with the El Rey -- they have a wide variety of room types with many different configurations. Another good bet would be the Eldorado Hotel. They're right downtown and have some "casitas" that might work well for you, however their pricing is a bit higher. Hope this helps!
