What a wonderful surprise this little hotel was. Roger the innkeeper was an amazing host, we felt we could talk to him for days straight. Everyone was kind and Lydia cooked us an amazing breakfast. The hotel itself beautiful and breath of fresh air

Dear Guests,
Well, you have been able, I am sure, to notice that all of us at the Inn and at our adjoining food store (starting with our Office) are pleased you and other travelers are taking time off Interstate 40 to come by and breathe a little Zuni air, and sample our lifestyle. After all, we are located right in the middle of the village!
And of course, we are eager to know about you: we appreciate you as Visitors, not merely Tourists indeed.
Welcome back any time!

The inn is super nice, old but very clean full of nick knacks with a hint of the dutch heritage this inn has, The house was once build by Dutch immigrants, we stayed in room 21 which has its own private bathroom. Bed is good room is cozy.
the breakfast is super, blue corn pancakes are a local treat and I had a fruit bowl which was super, made fresh in front of us by the very friendly host Francois.

Room Tip: Check in is a bit weird, you have to go to the supermarket and they will get someone to bring you to your room

Thank you, Dear Guests for your prompt review.
We do appreciate them all, the longer ones, the shorter ones, and the ones with a particular focus, such as yours regarding the breakfast food and the manner in which it is served. And it is nice to hear good things about our room 21; a little quirky with detached private bathroom, sloped tongue and groove ceiling (same wood with the walls), BUT nice view and sound from the pond below.
Welcome back anytime!

If you are looking for a modern hotel experience, this is not the place for you. But if, like us, you know something about the Vanderwagen family history and want to stay in the original homestead in the midst of the Zuni pueblo then this is the place to be. We spent only one night at the inn, but found it quite enjoyable. Rooms are small and had a lot of furniture and accessories in them--we were each just one person in two rooms (#s 1 and 4). Not a lot of room to spread out, especially if you had two people in the room, but there are common areas, including kitchen, diningroom, livingroom and outside patios. One downside of the room was that the AC was quite loud; I actually turned it off and slept with the fan, which was fine even though it was quite warm while we were there. The owner and innkeeper were very helpful in directing us around the village, telling us about where to go to see the rain dances, which were quite fascinating. These were not tourist dances, but very elaborate ceremonial dances put on for the Zunis themselves. We also enjoyed the breakfast, which you preorder the night before. Very plentiful selection and the blue corn pancakes were quite tasty. The advantage of being in an inn like this is that you also meet some interesting people. In fact, at our breakfast, we met a Vanderwagen family member as well as a non-native American woman who had brought a small Zuni child in her custody to the village to visit the child's grandmother. Interesting conversations with both parties. While in the village, we went to the visitor center and also a number of trading posts. It was somewhat disappointing that most of the trading posts were run by foreigners rather than by Zunis, which is why we found the cooperative in town a great place to shop (also much better prices than the major trading posts). The visitors' center ran tours, which we would have liked to have taken, especially as the guide seemed to be very informative. Guess this will have to wait for our next visit to the pueblo, which hopefully will be before too long.

Room Tip: Stayed in rooms 1 and 4, both on the small side but comfortable.

Dear Guests,

Thank you for the extensive review: I had to review IT myself several times to catch akk the information!
Excellent description of some of our amenities, as well as about the underlying history of our buildings and Vander Wagen family's long time adventure in Zuni.
Yes indeed, quite a bit of stuff about the Inn and in the rooms. We are essentially emulating the non-minimalist style of Zuni interior decorating, in that one does not see much outside a local home, but the inside exhibits all manners of family mementoes, creative artifacts, photos of especially all youngsters' phases of life, etc…
A/C units have been working overtime this summer… Time to service/replace some of them indeed. Thanks for the comment.
In regard to shops in Zuni, fair to say that most of them are not run by Zuni Tribal Members, but they still carry locally purchased items are are often ready to contribute to and sponsor community activities.

This review is recommended reading got potential visitors to Zuni in general, as well as Guests at the Inn.

You are staying in the rooms of an old home - rooms are small but nicely decorated. Rm #1 has shower in the room. Everything was very clean. The hostesses couldn't have been nicer or more friendly. Patio a great place to relax, with 2 friendly cats! Quiet at night. And the breakfast was awesome! We would definitely go back. It's worth the trip off I-40. Ask for directions as there is no sign off Hwy 53.

Dear Guests,
Thank you for the kind AND informative review; especially since it mentions our cheerful staff members, who very much value the opportunities to host visitors from afar, and learn about their lives while momentarily partaking of the Zuni lifestyle with them.
Ah, yes, "ask for directions" or… follow GPS instructions, which themselves sometimes lead travelers into a wrong direction, miles away from our real location.
The 2 cats of course, however nonchalantly, say "Thank you for the compliment". They do take their jobs at the Inn seriously, i.e. mostly being on hand for those cat deprived travelers. They are NOT encouraged to step near or into Guest quarters… And should not be so tempted by our generous clients!

I visited with two grandkids, age 10 and 12 and we had a wonderful experience. The room was excellent and the breakfast which came with the cost of the room was very ample and well done. The staff were all helpful.

Dear Guests,

Thank you for the review AND for bringing your wonderful grandkids. I am always impressed when travelers bring youngsters to our area, a destination which does not offer what might be called otherwise the "usual kid friendly attraction (and foods!).
Such children as the ones who accompanied you are of course obviously well taken care of and kept interested in learning about others' ways of life.
