Josefina's Old Gate
Ranked #2 of 2 Mesilla B&B and Inns
Reviewed 31 July 2014

I booked the room for my wedding night and was very impressed with the room size and old world decor. It was charming. The defective Kuerig machine leaked coffee the next morning and my husband used two of the bathroom hand towels to clean up the spill. I received a nasty voice message from one of the owners while on my honeymoon asking if it was "bodily fluid, wine, etc." and reminding me that I would be charged for towels if the stain wouldn't come out. I found her tone, choice of words, and attitude in very bad taste. I would stay there again but take my own towels and try to avoid the owner.

Room Tip: The Master suite is spacious and has access to a private and lush courtyard.

We found this lovely restaurant by accident. As a matter of fact we found the whole town by accident and am so glad we did. We had a great breakfast on the loveliest patio in town. Next time we are headed east we will go to Josefinas's again to eat and maybe stay in one of the rooms they have available.

Stayed over night for wife's birthday. Wanted to take advantage of wineries in the area and not have to drive. Simply stated the room exceeded our expectations. The inn only has two rooms one king and one queen. Both in close proximity to each other as the structure was clearly a large home historically.

Our reception from the owner was warm and welcoming. The king size room was very large and included two very comfortable chairs, a chaise, huge very comfortable four post bed. The furnishings are a mix of antiques and slightly more modern pieces. The bedding was obviously high quality. The room also had a wood burning fireplace, individually controlled air conditioner with remote, TV, coffee maker and cookies.

The bathroom was also very large with plenty of counter space, shower bath combo, heater, blow dryer and toiletries. We could not get over the size of the accommodations.

The rooms are connected to each other and the larger structure by hallways and patios. Exploring these for ice and a coke were fun as we were able to see the antique furniture and art. There is a very large shared atrium with lush plants and romantic night lights. There is also a small patio with fire pit and string lights over a pergola. Perfect place to sit with a glass of local NM wine. The inn also has a small private parking area close to room entrances. This is a big plus for exploring the historic plaza on foot.

The inn has a cafe that serves during breakfast and lunch. We did not partake but the cafe patio is great and often has live music in the acoustic, jazz vein. It is important to note the plaza has fine dinning, great Mexican food, bars, wineries, a historic theater and lots of shops. There are often vendors and activities in the plaza.

Josefina's is great. Well worth the price and will not hesitate to stay again!!

Did not stay in the Inn, but we have eaten lunch there several times and found the atmosphere and the food to be very good. The menu is creative, the portions are good sized and taste great. Just a few steps from the town square, it's worth the trip.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
This quaint adobe house known simply as “Josefina’s” has long been a symbol of warmth and welcome on the Historic Old Mesilla Plaza. Josefina’s is aptly named for the dynamic and outgoing woman who lived here for nearly 35 years and established the Luminaria Tradition of Mesilla. Dating back to the early 1900’s this home has served as a place to gather, socialize, and celebrate. This tradition lives on as “Josefina’s” opens its gates to the community and visitors of Mesilla.Once the site of holiday open houses and afternoon get-togethers, we now invite all to relax, spend time with friends and family, and enjoy the plaza in an intimate and comfortable setting. Whether you are gathering for a tea party on our patio, a luncheon in our café, celebrating a special anniversary in our Historic Inn, or shopping for that “must have” at Old Gate Antique’s, you are sure to find the warmth of Southern New Mexico charm. ... more   less
