Hotel in Santa FePosted Aug 1, 2015
The first room was spacious but it had some kind of flying bugs they were inside and more were outside on the window so we asked for another room. The second room was nice but much smaller. The whole facility is in much need of renovation. There is no restaurant or bar so you have to go into town to eat which is a bit of a drive. Unless major changes occur we will not stay there again.

A great ValuePosted Jul 18, 2015
Pros: Location & price
Cons: breakfast could be upgraded. bathroom fixtures too dark. TV older model.
Location: Easy drive into Santa Fe.
Excellent Value, although price will go up after upgrades this fall. Quiet in beautiful countryside, and an easy, short drive to Santa Fe. Management very personable, would talk to guests at breakfast. Room large & lots of light, although bathroom lights not bright enough. I have stayed many places in Santa Fe over the years & this would be my return choice. A few weeds in the patios, but who cares?

Landmark Gone to SeedPosted Jul 15, 2015
Pros: Guest room was large and the bed was comfortable.
Cons: Update the resort website to let prospective guests know that the spa, restaurant and bar are closed due to renovation of the property.
Location: The location is remote, so guests will have to drive into Santa Fe for lunch and dinner--about a 15 minute drive. Parking in Santa Fe is not easy.
We booked three nights (7/6-7/8/15) based on there being a spa, restaurant and bar on the premises as well as horseback riding available. Upon arrival, we were told that the spa, restaurant and bar were closed due to renovation of the property. These amenities were the main reason we selected this destination, along with the beautiful pictures from the property's website. The room we had was spacious, but reeked of wood smoke. The bathroom, though clean, had faucets that leaked and the tile around the bathtub showed some signs of mildew. After two days, I finally had to ask for washcloths since none had been provided. On our last day washcloths did appear, however, we had to sacrifice the bed being made. Apparently, providing washcloths and making the bed were too much for the housekeeping staff to handle on that day. We walked down to the stables to see the horses and observed manure in the green water that had collected in the feed trough--ugh! There were several baskets of used towels around the pool that must have sat in the rain for at least a couple of days. When we mentioned this to a staff member who seemed to be in charge, the baskets of towels were finally removed and the supply of fresh towels was replenished. The overall property had a look of being understaffed since things like weeding the property and removing rain-soaked placemats and water-filled candle holders from the outside restaurant/bar tables didn't command attention.

Beautiful and RelaxingPosted Jul 14, 2015
Pros: Views, comfort and hiking trails.
Location: Downtown is within 8 minutes with restaurants and shops.
The resort was set in the mountains yet close to downtown Santa Fe. It had great amenities like a gym, pool and a continental breakfast. The hiking trails were well kept and the scenery was gorgeous. On one hiking trail, we were pleasantly surprised to find a waterfall. The rooms were clean and quiet. We will definitely stay here again.

Now is the time to stay there!Posted Jul 13, 2015
Cons: tile upkeep, weeding, mold/mildew smell abatement
Location: Very near the Opera which makes it great after a long night
This lovely place has had grander times. Our room was beautiful to look at but smelled like mold and mildew from the recent rains. It is clear that it is in need of some TLC which is why it is so affordable. It is still a lovely place to be, and a good value. The staff working hard to compensate.

Affordable stay at extraordinary propertyPosted Jul 10, 2015
Pros: The property is beautiful. The rooms are more comfortable than home. Attentive employees. Carlos, at the front desk, is especially great.
Cons: The property is undergoing improvement currently - to the dining facilities and spa, especially.
Location: It's a couple of miles into the hills from the plaza in Santa Fe. Beautiful quiet setting. Hiking trails and places to ride the resort's horses. Pool.
During the well-publicized renovations, this luxurious property is an extraordinary value. There is no construction noise, but some of the amenities are unavailable. Rooms are slated to be gradually updated, but even pre-update, they are large and well-appointed with high quality bedding and at bathing facilities and fireplaces (many gas fireplaces) and nice balconies and/or patios. I have stayed at Bishop's Lodge twice, so far, since renovations began and I plan at least one more stay before the summer is over. Access to a quiet, lush setting (A bit of a celebrity hideaway, at least in the past...and probably in the future) for way less than a night in a chain hotel.

Posted Jul 6, 2015
Pros: Liked the rustic atmosphere. Accommodations are spread out so you never saw a lot of people. The pool was clean and not overcrowded.
Cons: Grounds keeping appeared neglected. Overgrown vegetation, walkways not swept. Staffing was minimal.
Location: Secluded and quiet. Very short driving distance to the Plaza.
The lodge is scheduled to begin a $60m renovation in the fall of 2015. The nightly rate seemed high considering they currently are not offering some amenities that are listed in their advertisements - so call ahead. Still enjoyed the lodge. Staff were all very pleasant and helpful.

Great views!Posted Jul 2, 2015
Pros: Views, location, staff
Cons: Beds are hard.
Location: Skiing, hiking, shopping, eating, etc. in and around Santa Fe.
We love this place, but the beds were hard as a rock! We understand they will be closing after Labor Day to fully renovate, which will be nice but we may not be able to afford their rates if they raise them significantly.

Under RenovationsPosted Jun 30, 2015
Pros: The quiet outdoors, the big room the climate
Cons: The hotel is in dire need of updating
Location: Hiking, bird watching
Because the hotel was to be under nenovations, many of the services were lacking.
