My experience with this hotel was very good. The location is central, The staffs are helpful and courteous. Check-in/out fast and smooth. The courtyard setup is very cool. The room is large and fairly clean, and the price is very reasonable, especially for suites. On the other hand, there is no luxury. The building is old. The bathroom tiny. There...

Stayed for 2 nights on our trip along Route 66 - our most luxurious hotel by far. The courtyard setting and the dried chilli wreaths were very atmospheric although the lack of a lift to our 2nd floor room was noted! The room was spacious with a separate lounge area and lovely little balcony. The bar staff were very friendly....

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Hotel Chimayo. Great location--on a quiet street close to the square. By the first night we felt like it was home. Clean and quiet with appealing New Mexico decor. Very comfortable king-sized bed. Loved the separate living area with couch, fireplace, small dining table and mini-kitchen composed of sink, coffeemaker, microwave and...

We stayed at the Hotel Chimayo for four nights. It was fabulous. We were there during a hot spell and the air conditioning was perfect. The suite/ room was lovely and had a refrigerator and microwave. The hotel was built in 1870 and has been very well brought up to date. The style is Spanish/Mexican and is very comfortable. We...

Dear josephone, From the opening to your inspiring review, I guess that our location was perfect. It sounds as if the rest of our hotel's look and design made you feel right at home. Many of our rooms offer refrigerators, but I believe you had a Deluxe room that also comes with a microwave. Those rooms are truly unique and...
