Below even the standards of Motel 6

Posted Oct 14, 2014
Pros: The door shut properly, I guess.
Cons: Ensure parking availability for paying customers, handle neighbor complaints in a more timely fashion, and train clerks to properly read reservations.
Location: A nice walk to the Plaza; only took about ten or fifteen minutes to get to the heart of it.
I generally stay at a Motel 6 whenever I can, primarily because I know exactly what I can expect (inexpensive, four walls, a roof, and a ceiling). However, this particular location was a huge disappointment. Despite having a reservation, I arrived to a 100% full parking lot (and in fact an overflowing one; the front desk clerk just parked his car in the fire lane in front of the office). I was told to park next door at an auto shop, whose parking lot had lots of warnings about imminent towings, so I had to get up the next morning at 6 AM to move my car onto the Motel 6 lot. That was not the morning's first interruption. My two-night reservation was mistakenly processed as one night, resulting in an early-morning phone call asking why I hadn't checked out, as well as several attempts at housekeeping by uninformed staff (not your fault, housekeepers! y'all are great.) that kept waking me up. The front desk also made me come down to the office instead of running the card I had on file for the second night's payment, resulting in a grumpy, pajama-clad trudge down flights of stairs. After getting all THAT worked out, the second day/night was on track to be better, until the police showed up three different times to deal with rowdy clientele; it sounded like the room next to me was hosting a WWF match performed by running washing machines. I don't know how much blame the hotel itself can shoulder for the behavior of their customers, but it sure didn't do any favors.

Won't stay here again.

Pros: Close to Santa Fe square. Cheap
Cons: Monitor parking lot for people who decide to block everyone in. Fix the bathroom's configuration.
Location: Safe location, close to square, lots of other restaurants and shops near by.
Last minute trip to Santa Fe for one night. Didn't want to spend a lot of money. Just wanted a clean and comfortable room close to downtown. It was cheap and mostly clean. Comfortable - not so much. In addition, someone at the hotel was allowed to park their huge SUV with boat attached in a nonparking space. This space was the only way to get out of the hotel and on the road. Instead, almost everyone had to back up the length of the motel and back in to the street. Not okay. It was a safe area, but beds were not comfortable at all. The bathrooms were crazy. The toilet is so close to the sink that you had to sit sidesaddle on it. Then there was another 4 feet of just blank space on the rest of that wall in the bathroom. The towels and towel rack were across the bathroom from the shower so there was no where to put your towel close to the shower. Also, I wish I had gotten the tiling contract for the bathroom. I no nothing about tiling and neither did the person who tiled this bathroom.

Worst hotel room ever

Posted Sep 24, 2014
Pros: Reasonable walking distance to Governor's Palace and main square.
Cons: Everything. Carpets need to be replaced; lighting improved, everything needs renovating.
Location: Main square with a number of artsy shops, shopping for hand made Native Indian jewellery at the Governor's Palace. Very lively main square.
The room faced a high wall which did not allow natural light into the room. Light bulbs were likely low wattage, so overall the room was dark. In future, I will request to check a room before we accept it. Loved Santa Fe but not the hotel.

Unpleasant Experience

Posted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: nothing
Cons: everything
When we arrived at the motel, they wanted to charge us $30 more than what I booked on Expedia. The clerk had to check with her manager and it took over 20 minutes to straighten it out that we were only going to be charged what we booked on line. However, they didn't have the type room we wanted which was a King and so we ended up with 2 double beds. Bathroom woodwork was absolutely filthy. Towels looked like they were 10 years old. This was the worst motel I've ever stayed in. Would never recommend it.

Hotel had no pool, no hair dryer, parking hard to get in & out. Drunk guy knocking on our door at 2:30 in the morning yelling obscene words. I will not stay at this hotel again or in that area.

Not bad...for a motel 6

Posted Jul 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
Nice location, fairly friendly staff. Room was very old and had a funky smell to it. Would recommend for someone on a budget who doesn't have to spend lots of time in the room.
