This is the best value you can find in a hotel this close to the plaza. This is a 3 star property so do not expect luxury amenities. The rooms need some updating but the beds are nice and comfortable with lots of pillows provided. My only real complaint is the small bathroom which makes me feel like I am...

Thank you OrpheusTexas, We are so pleased you chose our hotel among the many here in Santa Fe! Our location is truly a luxury when seeing the beautiful architecture and visiting the downtown shops and restaurants our town has to offer. I apologize for the petite bathroom size. Since our building is historic, we try to keep the integrity of...

You can tell that the hotel was a refurbished older hotel. In spite of that, they did a nice job with the lobby and bar area. The best aspects of the hotel are, no doubt, the location, and the value. You are literally steps off the square. The hotels that are close to this one can be triple the price!...

Dear JJ76767, Thank you for making the trek across America from Wisconsin to New Mexico! I hope your journey back home was pleasant and incident-free. I am glad you noted the refurbishment of our lobby and bar. Low N' Slow is growing to become a truly unique "hang-out" environment for locals and visitors alike. I apologize for service you received...

I stayed here for two nights on a business trip. The good is LOCATION! This hotels is a block off the square, right next door to The Anasazi and within a block of 3 of the top tier restaurants in Santa Fe.

We appreciate such a positive review! Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience while staying with us. I am glad our beds were "super and very comfortable."

The Hotel Chimayo is like walking back in time. Walking to our room on a brick courtyard, it is narrow with the rooms rising 3 floors on each side. Several balconies jut out from the building making this seem like you stepped back in time. The room had narrow doors, beautiful fireplace, and a comfortable bed. If you are wanting...

It is difficult to describe how awful this hotel is. Cleanliness is not a priority. The window was falling out in the room and if you did get it to stay on track to be open to take out the musty smell...you propped it up with a stick. Bathroom was so dimly lit you could not see anything in it....

We have just returned from a three night stay at Hotel Chimayo. The location, only a few steps away from The Plaza, could not be better. The front office staff was outstanding-friendly, helpful, accomodating. Our room, though a little small, was excellent- very comfortable bed, quiet. The restaurant was also excellent. We booked a bed and breakfast package and had...

I have been staying at the Hotel Chimayo (formerly the Plaza Real) since 2005. I have tried a couple of the "full service" hotels in Santa Fe but came back to the Chimayo.

Dear luv2pole, Thank you for continuing to be a valued guest of our building, despite the name we may be. Plaza Real and Hotel Chimayo are not as different as people would believe. The reason we decided to switch the name was our strong connection to the city and people of Chimayo--a northern New Mexican city steeped in artistic traditions...

I'd never been to Santa Fe and wanted to see it in spite of the rainy forecast. I'll definitely go back and was pleased with the Hotel Chimayo, even though there are many larger, more upscale hotels that we saw wandering around downtown Santa Fe. As many of the reviews on tripadvisor warn, the bathrooms are small. That's true, but...
