1 Albuquerque Marriott
Albuquerque Marriott
2101 Louisiana Blvd. NE
Albuquerque, NM 87110

This 17-story, upscale, uptown property draws a mix of business and leisure travelers; it's close to three shopping malls and not too far from Nob Hill. Kachina dolls, Native American pottery, and other regional artworks decorate the elegant public areas. The rooms are traditional American, with walk-in closets, armoires, and crystal lamps, but have Southwestern touches. Rooms on all but the first few floors enjoy staggering views, either of Sandias to the east or the vast mesas to the west. Cielo Sandia specializes in steaks and contemporary New Mexican fare. Pros:

A top-to-bottom renovation completed in 2007 spruced the place up quite nicely; cozy lobby lounge.

Cons:

Fee for Internet access in rooms. www.marriott.com/abqnm. 405 rooms, 6 suites. In-room: Internet. In-hotel: restaurant, bar, pool, gym, laundry facilities, parking. Credit cards accepted.

2 Best Western Rio Grande Inn
Best Western Rio Grande Inn
1015 Rio Grande Blvd. NW
Albuquerque, NM 87104

Although part of the Best Western chain, this contemporary four-story low-rise just off Interstate 40—a 10-minute walk from Old Town's plaza—has an attractive Southwestern design and furnishings, plus such modern touches as free high-speed Internet. The heavy, handcrafted wood furniture, tin sconces, and artwork in the rooms come from local suppliers and artisans. That locals are familiar with the Albuquerque Grill is a good indicator of the restaurant's reputation. It's a good value. Pros:

100% nonsmoking; airport shuttle.

Cons:

It's a hike from the rear rooms to the front desk. www.riograndeinn.com. 173 rooms. In-room: Internet (some), Wi-Fi (some). In-hotel: restaurant, bar, pool, gym, laundry facilities, parking, some pets allowed. Credit cards accepted.

2231 Yale Blvd. SE
Albuquerque, NM 87106

Holiday Inn Select Albuquerque Airport
1501 Sunport Pl. SE
Albuquerque, NM 87106

Opened just west of the airport in 2006, this upscale, four-story hotel sits high on a bluff, affording nice views of downtown and the western mesa as well as the Sandia Mountains.

Work areas are well lit, another plus for the business traveler.

6 Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town
Hotel Albuquerque at Old Town
800 Rio Grande Blvd. NW
Albuquerque, NM 87104

This 11-story Southwestern-style hotel rises distinctly above Old Town's ancient structures. The large rooms have desert-color appointments, hand-wrought furnishings, and tile bathrooms; most rooms have a small balcony with no patio furniture but nice views. Cristobal's serves commendable Spanish-style steaks and seafood; Café Plazuela & Cantina offers more casual American and New Mexican food; and a fine flamenco guitarist entertains in the Q-Bar & Gallery Lounge. Treatments and facials are available. Pros:

The high-ceiling, rustically furnished, Territorial-style lobby is a comfy place to hang out.

7 Hotel Blue
Hotel Blue
717 Central Ave. NW
Albuquerque, NM 87102

The reasonable rates here draw a party crowd, and the art deco-inspired rooms can pick up street noise as well; based on the (decidedly basic) services alone it would be a stretch to call this place hip or boutique. Still, people rave about the beds, and it is ideally located, especially for those with business downtown. It overlooks a small park, is a short stroll from downtown's music clubs and restaurants, and it's a short drive, bus ride, or 15-minute walk from Old Town. In summer, a lively Saturday growers' market (including arts vendors, music, and more) sets up in Robinson Park next door. Pros:

Comfortable Tempurpedic beds; complimentary shuttle to the airport, convention center, and Old Town from 7 am until 10 pm.

Cons:

This can be a fringe neighborhood by night. www.thehotelblue.com. 125 rooms, 10 suites. In-hotel: restaurant, bar, pool, gym, parking. Credit cards accepted. Rate includes: Breakfast.

8 Hyatt Regency Albuquerque
Hyatt Regency Albuquerque
330 Tijeras Ave. NW
Albuquerque, NM 87102

Adjacent to the Albuquerque Convention Center, the city's most sumptuous hotel comprises a pair of soaring, desert-color towers that figure prominently in the city's skyline. The gleaming art deco-inspired interior benefited from a 2008 top-to-bottom renovation; the ambience is refined and not overbearing. The contemporary rooms in mauve, burgundy, and tan combine Southwestern style with all the amenities you'd expect of a high-caliber business-oriented hotel, including Wi-Fi, iPod docking stations, flat-screen TVs, plush pillow-top mattresses, and fluffy bathrobes. McGrath's Bar and Grill serves steaks, chops, chicken, and seafood (and breakfast to the power crowd), and there's also a Starbucks on-site. Bigwigs of all stripes stay in the penthouse. Pros:

Easy walking distance from the KiMo Theatre and downtown's art galleries and restaurants, and a quick cab (or bus) ride elsewhere; the views, lap pool, and well-equipped 24/7 fitness center (massage service is available there or in rooms).

Cons:

Until you get your bearings, the layout can seem somewhat mazelike. No views on lower floors. albuquerque.hyatt.com. 395 rooms, 14 suites. In-room: Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurant, bars, pool, gym, parking. Credit cards accepted.

9 Hyatt Regency Tamaya
Hyatt Regency Tamaya
1300 Tuyuna Trail
Bernalillo, NM 87525

This spectacular large-scale resort, on 500 acres on the Santa Ana Pueblo, includes a top-rated golf course, state-of-the-art spa, and cultural museum and learning center. Most rooms, swathed in natural stone, wood, and adobe and filled with pueblo-inspired textiles and pottery, overlook the Sandia Mountains or cottonwood groves; many have balconies or patios. Cultural events include bread-baking demonstrations (in traditional adobe ovens), storytelling, and live tribal dance and music performances. Other amenities include waterslides over two of the outdoor pools, atmospheric bars, guided nature walks, and hot-air ballooning nearby. The Hyatt's outstanding Corn Maiden Restaurant

(

Closed Sun. and Mon. No lunch

) serves outstanding contemporary fare that mixes New Mexican, Asian, regional American influences and ingredients. Try buffalo topped with foie gras and a truffle demi-glace, or crispy-skin duck served with an apple-green chili pancake and orange-whiskey sauce. The Santa Ana Star Casino is a free shuttle ride away. And if you're looking for an exceptional horseback ride, arrange one with the Tamaya stables. As you drink in eyefuls of the spectacular pueblo backcountry and weave among trees and plantings, you'll wonder why you ever settled for the dull nose-to-butt riding experiences of yesteryear. If you're too suave to wear the helmet or gloves offered, by all means do not forego a heavy layer of sunscreen, especially on your face, ears, and neck.

Pros:

This is the place to come to get away.

Cons:

Occasionally quirky front-desk service, but that's it. www.tamaya.hyatt.com. 331 rooms, 19 suites. In-room: Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurants, bars, golf course, pools, tennis courts, gym, spa, children's programs. Credit cards accepted.

10 Marriott Pyramid
Marriott Pyramid
5151 San Francisco Rd. NE
Albuquerque, NM 87109

This curious ziggurat-shaped 10-story building fits in nicely with the other examples of postmodern architecture that have sprung up in northern Albuquerque. It's the most upscale of the slew of chain hotels in the area, and it's an excellent base for exploring the North Valley, or for easier access to Santa Fe than from downtown or airport hotels. Rooms have sponge-painted walls and dapper country-French decor and open onto a soaring atrium lobby. Perks include evening turndown service and newspapers delivered to the room each morning. Pros:

Easy access to Interstate 25.

Cons:

Service is uneven; the lobby is mazelike and confusing, as you might expect inside a pyramid. www.albuquerquemarriottnorth.com. 248 rooms, 54 suites. In-room: Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurant, bar, pool, gym, laundry facilities, parking. Credit cards accepted.

11 Nativo Lodge Hotel
Nativo Lodge Hotel
6000 Pan American Freeway NE
Albuquerque, NM 87109

Although it's priced similarly to a number of generic midrange chain properties on the north side, this five-story property has more character than most, especially in the expansive public areas, bar, and restaurant, which have an attractive Southwestern motif that includes hand-carved panels depicting symbols from Native American lore and river-rock walls. Rooms have wing chairs, work desks, Wi-Fi, and dual-line phones. The hotel is just off Interstate 25, but set back far enough to avoid highway noise; several movie theaters and a bounty of restaurants are nearby. Pros:

Nice scale, relaxing atmosphere.

Cons:

If your primary business is downtown, this is a bit far north. hhandr.com/nativo. 147 rooms, 3 suites. In-room: Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurant, bar, pool, gym, laundry facilities, parking. Credit cards accepted.

12 Sandia Resort & Casino
Sandia Resort & Casino

Albuquerque, NM 87122

Completed in early 2006 after much anticipation, this seven-story casino-resort set a new standard for luxury in Albuquerque; unfortunately the service here doesn't always quite match the promise. Nevertheless, appointments like 32-inch plasma TVs, handcrafted wooden furniture, louvered wooden blinds, and muted, natural-color palettes lend elegance to the spacious rooms, most of which have sweeping views of the Sandia Mountains or the Rio Grande Valley. The 700-acre grounds, which are in the Far Northeast Heights, just across Interstate 25 from Balloon Fiesta Park, ensure privacy and quiet and include a superb golf course and an amphitheater that hosts top-of-the-line music and comedy acts. The Green Reed Spa offers a wide range of treatments, many using local clay and plants. One of the city's best restaurants for mountain views, Bien Shur, occupies the casino's top floor, and there are three other places to eat on-site. The casino is open 24 hours. Pros:

24/7 room service.

Cons:

Smoking is allowed on premises; pool not open year-round. www.sandiacasino.com. 198 rooms, 30 suites. In-room: Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurants, bars, golf course, pool, gym, spa, parking. Credit cards accepted.

15 Albuquerque BioPark
Albuquerque BioPark
903 10th St. SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102

The city's foremost outdoor attraction and nature center, the park comprises the recently restored Tingley Beach as well as three distinct attractions, Albuquerque Aquarium, Rio Grande Botanic Garden, and Rio Grande Zoo. The garden and aquarium are located together (admission gets you into both facilities); the zoo is a short drive southeast. You can also ride the scenic Rio Line

vintage narrow-gauge railroad between the zoo and gardens and aquarium complex; rides are free if you purchase a combination tickets to all of the park's facilities.

Two main components of the Albuquerque Bio Park, Albuquerque Aquarium and Rio Grande Botanic Garden

(2601 Central Ave. NW, west of Old Town, north of Central Ave. and just east of the Central Ave. bridge, 87104) are a huge draw with kids but also intrigue adult visitors. At the aquarium, a spectacular shark tank with floor-to-ceiling viewing is among the most popular of the marine exhibits. The Spanish-Moorish garden is one of three walled gardens near the entrance of the 36-acre botanic garden. The exquisite Sasebo Japanese Garden joins other specialty landscapes including the Curandera Garden, exhibiting herbs used by traditional Spanish folk-medicine practitioners, and the Children's Fantasy Garden, complete with walk-through pumpkin, a 14-foot dragon, and giant bees. The seasonal PNM Butterfly Pavilion is open late May through late September, and, year-round, the glass conservatory holds desert and Mediterranean plantings. In summer there are concerts given on Thursday at the botanic garden. From late November through late December, the botanic garden comes alive each evening from 6 to 9 pm for the River of Lights festival, a walk-through display of holiday lights and decorations.

The 64-acre Rio Grande Zoo

(903 10th St. SW, 87102) is an oasis of waterfalls, cottonwood trees, and naturalized animal habitats. More than 250 species of wildlife from around the world live here, including giraffes, camels, polar bears, elephants, zebras, and koalas. The Tropical America exhibit offers a bit of contrast for dry Albuquerque, replicating a jungle rain forest and containing toucans, spider monkeys, and brilliant orchids and bromeliads. The zoo has established captive-breeding programs for more than a dozen endangered species. Concerts are performed on the grounds on summer Friday evenings. There's a café on the premises. The

Thunderbird Express

is a ¾-scale train that runs in a nonstop loop within the zoo, and during the 20-minute ride, conductors talk in depth about the creatures and their habitats. Running Tuesday-Sunday, it's free with combo tickets, or $2 otherwise (buy tickets onboard or at the Africa exhibit).

Tingley Beach

(1800 Tingley Dr. SW, south of Central Ave. and just east of Central Ave. bridge, 87102) is a recreational arm of the biological park that consists of three ponds, created in the 1930s by diverting water from the Rio Grande. You can rent paddleboats (or bicycles; both seasonally), fish the trout-stocked ponds (gear and fishing licenses can be purchased at the fishing-tackle shop on-site), or sail your model electric or wind-powered boats. To the west of the ponds, the cottonwood Bosque (wetlands forest) fringes the river. Ecological tours of the Bosque are given in summer. It's part of the popular 16-mi Paseo del Bosque bike path that is open year-round. There's also a snack bar and a

Rio Line

station; the ¾-scale passenger trains make a stop here en route between the aquarium and garden complex and the zoo. www.cabq.gov/biopark. Admission: Free Tingley Beach and grounds, $7 Albuquerque Aquarium and Rio Grande Botanic Garden (combined ticket), $7 Rio Grande Zoo, $12 combination ticket for all attractions is available for entries Tues.-Sun. 9-noon, and includes unlimited rides on the Rio Line and Thunderbird Express trains. Hours: Daily 9-5, until 6 on weekends from June-Aug. No trains Mon.

Best Western Hilltop House Hotel
400 Trinity Dr.
Los Alamos, NM 87544

Minutes from the Los Alamos National Laboratory, this well-kept three-story hotel hosts both vacationers and scientists. It's standard chain-hotel decor here: rooms are done with contemporary, functional furniture and have microwaves, refrigerators, and coffeemakers; deluxe ones have kitchenettes. The La Vista Restaurant on the premises serves tasty, if predictable, American fare. The very good Blue Window Bistro is next door. Pros:

Great proximity to the restaurants and shops in town; friendly, easygoing staff.

Cons:

This isn't a property with much character; but it's a solid bet for business travelers and those wanting to use Los Alamos as a jumping-off point for excursions beyond Santa Fe. www.bwhilltop.com. 73 rooms, 19 suites.

Bobcat Inn
442 Old Las Vegas Hwy.
Santa Fe, NM 87505

A delightful, affordable, country hacienda that's a 15-minute drive southeast of the Plaza, this adobe B&B sits amid 10 secluded acres of piñon and ponderosa pine, with grand views of the Ortiz Mountains and the area's high-desert mesas. John and Amy Bobrick run this low-key retreat and prepare expansive full breakfasts as well as high tea on Saturday during the summer high season (these are by reservation only).

19 El Rey Inn
El Rey Inn
1862 Cerrillos Rd.
Santa Fe, NM 87505

The kind of place where Lucy and Ricky might have stayed during one of their cross-country adventures, the El Rey was built in 1936 but has been brought gracefully into the 21st century, its rooms and bathrooms handsomely updated without losing any period charm. Rooms are individually decorated and might include antique television armoires, beamed ceilings, upholstered wing chairs and sofas; some have kitchenettes. Each unit has a small covered front patio with wrought-iron chairs. Beautifully landscaped grounds are covered with flowers in the summer and towering trees shade the parking lot.

20 Eldorado Hotel & Spa
Eldorado Hotel & Spa
309 W. San Francisco St.
Santa Fe, NM 87501

Because it's the closest thing Santa Fe has to a convention hotel, the Eldorado sometimes gets a bad rap, but it's actually fairly inviting, with individually decorated rooms and stunning mountain views. Rooms are stylishly furnished with carved Southwestern-style desks and chairs, large upholstered club chairs, and art prints; many have terraces or kiva-style fireplaces. The rooftop pool and gym are great fun, and there's music nightly, from classical Spanish guitar to piano, in the comfortable lobby lounge.

22 Garrett's Desert Inn
Garrett's Desert Inn
311 Old Santa Fe Trail
Santa Fe, NM 87501

This sprawling, U-shaped motel may surround a parking lot and offer relatively little in the way of ambience, but it's fairly well maintained and you can't beat its location two blocks from the Plaza, smack in the middle of historic Barrio de Analco. The clean, no-frills rooms are done in earthy tones with a smattering of Southwest touches, and there's a pleasant pool and patio as well as an inviting bar that serves cocktails and light food and has a pool table.

23 Hacienda Nicholas
Hacienda Nicholas
320 E. Marcy St.
Santa Fe, NM 87501

It is rare to find classic Santa Fe accommodations—this actually is

an old hacienda—blocks from the Plaza for reasonable prices. This is one such place. The thick adobe walls surrounding the building create a peace and solitude that belies its central location. Southwest decor mixes with French country and Mexican details to create an ambience perfectly suited to this city. Homemade, organic breakfasts are deluxe; afternoon snacks will leave you begging for the recipes (which they'll cheerfully provide). The rooms are extremely comfortable and quiet, with details like plush comforters and sheets, and cozy robes. Several rooms open on to the interior courtyard, which has a kiva fireplace and offers a perfect respite after a long day of exploring. This is a real find.

Pros:

Rates are significantly lower than one would expect for the level of service and amenities here; the inn is one of the most "eco-friendly" in town.

Cons:

No hot tub or pool, though guests have privileges at El Gancho Health & Fitness Club 15 minutes away. www.haciendanicholas.com. 7 rooms. Credit cards accepted.

28 Inn of the Turquoise Bear
Inn of the Turquoise Bear
342 E. Buena Vista
Santa Fe, NM 87501

In the 1920s, poet Witter Bynner played host to an eccentric circle of artists and intellectuals, as well as some wild parties in his mid-19th-century Spanish-Pueblo Revival home, which is now a B&B. Rooms are simple but have plush linens. The inn's style preserves the building's historic integrity, and there's plenty of ambience and a ranchlike lobby. You might sleep in the room where D.H. Lawrence slept, or perhaps Robert Oppenheimer's room. The terraced flower gardens provide plenty of places to repose away from the traffic on Old Santa Fe Trail, which borders the property. This is the quintessential Santa Fe inn. Pros:

Gorgeous grounds and a house steeped in local history; gracious, knowledgeable staff.

Cons:

No pool or hot tub on-site. www.turquoisebear.com. 8 rooms, 2 with shared bath; 3 suites. In-room: Wi-Fi. In-hotel: parking, some pets allowed. Credit cards accepted. Rate includes: Breakfast.

29 Inn on the Alameda
Inn on the Alameda
303 E. Alameda St.
Santa Fe, NM 87501

Near the Plaza and Canyon Road is one of the Southwest's best small hotels. Alameda means "tree-lined lane," and this one perfectly complements the inn's location by the gurgling Santa Fe River. The adobe architecture and enclosed courtyards strewn with climbing rose vines combine a relaxed New Mexico country atmosphere with the luxury and amenities of a top-notch hotel, from afternoon wine and cheese to free local and toll-free calls to triple-sheeted beds with 300-count Egyptian bedding. Rooms have a Southwestern color scheme, handmade armoires and headboards, and ceramic lamps and tiles—many have patios and kiva fireplaces. Pros:

The solicitous staff is first-rate; excellent breakfasts.

Cons:

No pool. www.innonthealameda.com. 59 rooms, 10 suites. In-room: Wi-Fi. In-hotel: bar, gym, laundry facilities, parking, some pets allowed. Credit cards accepted. Rate includes: Breakfast.

30 La Fonda
La Fonda
100 E. San Francisco St.
Santa Fe, NM 87501

History and charm are more prevalent in this sole Plaza-front hotel than first-class service and amenities. The pueblo-inspired structure was built in 1922 and enlarged many times. Antiques and Native American art decorate the tiled lobby, and each room has hand-decorated wood furniture, wrought-iron light fixtures, beamed ceilings, and high-speed wireless. Some suites have fireplaces. The 14 rooftop rooms are the most luxurious and include Continental breakfast and private concierge services; there's also an exercise room, garden, and outdoor hot tub there. La Plazuela Restaurant, with its hand-painted glass tiles, serves good and creative Southwestern food. Folk and R&B bands rotate nightly in the bar. Pros:

Great building and location, steeped in history.

Cons:

For the price, facilities don't stand up to comparison with other downtown properties. www.lafondasantafe.com. 143 rooms, 24 suites. In-room: Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurant, bars, pool, gym, parking. Credit cards accepted.

31 La Posada de Santa Fe Resort and Spa
La Posada de Santa Fe Resort and Spa
330 E. Palace Ave.
Santa Fe, NM 87501

Rooms on the beautiful, quiet grounds of this hotel vary, but extensive renovations have enhanced all rooms to a level of luxury previously lacking. Many have fireplaces, all have flat-screen TVs, CD players, leather couches, marble bathrooms, and Navajo-inspired rugs. The main building contains a handful of luxurious, high-ceiling Victorian rooms. The property boasts excellent bar, spa, and common areas, including the fantastic contemporary restaurant Fuego and the Staab House Lounge. Guests are offered numerous complimentary events throughout the week, like Margarita Monday, wine-and-cheese pairings on Wednesday, and chef's receptions on Friday. Pros:

Numerous amenities, two blocks from the Santa Fe Plaza.

Cons:

Resort can sometimes feel overrun with tour-bus crowds. www.laposadadesantafe.com. 120 rooms, 39 suites. In-room: Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurant, bar, pool, gym, spa, parking. Credit cards accepted.

32 Las Palomas
Las Palomas
460 W. San Francisco St.
Santa Fe, NM 87501

It's a pleasant 10-minute walk west of the Plaza to reach this group of properties, consisting of two historic, luxurious compounds, one of them Spanish Pueblo-style adobe, the other done in the Territorial style, with a Victorian ambience, as well as the 15 rooms in the recently acquired La Tienda & Duran House compound. A network of brick paths shaded by mature trees leads past the casitas, connecting them with secluded courtyards and flower gardens. Each casita has a bedroom, full kitchen, living room with pull-out sofa, and fireplace, and each opens onto a terrace or patio. Locally handcrafted wood-and-leather sofas, desks, and tables fill these spacious accommodations, along with Native American artwork and sculptures. It's an elegant alternative to the city's upscale full-service hotels, affording guests a bit more privacy and the feel of a private cottage rental—though it is managed by the Hotel Santa Fe. Pros:

Kid-friendly, with swings and a play yard; on-site fitness center.

Cons:

Big variation in accommodations; no hot tub or pool on-site (guests may use pool at the Hotel Santa Fe). www.laspalomas.com. 38 units. In-room: kitchen, Wi-Fi. In-hotel: gym. Credit cards accepted. Rate includes: Breakfast.

33 Lodge at Santa Fe
Lodge at Santa Fe
750 N. St. Francis Dr.
Santa Fe, NM 87501

Rooms at this former Radisson have pleasant Southwestern furnishings and earth-tone fabrics, though some of the furnishings and facilities are showing wear. The hilltop location offers spectacular views east toward the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and south toward the Sandias—but only from certain rooms, so ask when reserving. The Plaza is a five-minute drive (they offer free shuttle service), the Santa Fe Opera just a bit farther. Las Mañanitas restaurant serves decent Spanish and Southwestern fare, and the adjacent cabaret is home in summer to flamenco dancer Maria Benitez's troupe. The bar hosts some of the town's better DJs for dancing. Pros:

Guests have free access to the Santa Fe Spa next door, which has a full health club.

Cons:

Service is lackluster; no restaurants or attractions within walking distance. www.hhandr.com. 103 rooms, 25 suites. In-room: Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurant, bar, pool, parking. Credit cards accepted.

34 Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Spa and Resort
Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Spa and Resort
50 Los Baños Dr.
Ojo Caliente, NM 87549

Accommodations here run the gamut from spartan in the unfussy 1916 hotel (no TVs, simple furnishings) to rather upscale in the elegant suites, which were added in summer 2006. Rooms in the hotel have bathrooms but no showers or tubs—bathing takes place in the mineral springs (it's an arrangement that pleases most longtime devotees but doesn't sit well with others). The cottages are quite comfy, with refrigerators and TVs; some have kitchenettes, with tile showers in the bathrooms. The 12 spacious suites have such luxury touches as kiva fireplaces and patios; half have private, double soaking tubs outside, which are filled with Ojo mineral waters. All lodgers have complimentary access to the mineral pools and milagro

(miracle) wraps, and the bathhouse has showers. Horseback tours can be prearranged. The Artesian Restaurant ($$) serves world-beat fare in a charming dining room. Four-day and overnight packages are available, from $700 per person. There's also camping on-site, beside the cottonwood-shaded Rio Ojo Caliente—double-occupancy camping rates are $20 for tents, $40 for RVs.

Pros:

This place can feel like a real getaway for fairly reasonable rates.

Cons:

Service and treatments can be disappointing; ask about the construction-renovation—it can be loud and unrelaxing. www.ojocalientesprings.com. 19 rooms, 19 cottages, 12 suites, 3 3-bedroom houses. In-room: no a/c, kitchen (some), no TV (some). In-hotel: restaurant, spa. Credit cards accepted.

Parlour Car Bed & Breakfast
311 Terrace Ave.
Chama, NM 87520

Owners Wendy and Bonsall Johnson treat the guests at their intimate B&B like family. Heavy Victorian furnishings, and four-poster beds add the perfect touch to this stately restored banker's home across from the railroad yard. There's an upright piano and tufted leather furniture in the sitting room and The Pullman bedroom has a queen brass bed, views of the well-tended gardens and an adjoining private bath that includes a whirlpool tub for two.

36 Rock Pool Gardens
Rock Pool Gardens

Dixon, NM 87527

This private guesthouse has two warmly furnished two-bedroom suites, one with a kitchenette and a bathroom connecting the bedrooms, the other with a full kitchen. Each has its own access and patio. The rustic walls, Mexican tile work, and country furnishings lend a cozy air to these otherwise contemporary suites, and lush gardens surround the building. There's a Jacuzzi under the trees and an indoor heated pool set in natural rock. Both suites can be rented for a group for $160 per night. Pros:

Rock Pool is one of the few accommodations between Española and Taos, and it's also a good value.

Cons:

There aren't restaurants or sights within walking distance. 2 suites. In-room: kitchen, Wi-Fi. In-hotel: pool, some pets allowed. No credit cards. Rate includes: Breakfast.

37 Santa Fe Courtyard by Marriott
Santa Fe Courtyard by Marriott
3347 Cerrillos Rd.
Santa Fe, NM 87505

Of the dozens of chain properties along gritty Cerrillos Road, this is the only bona fide gem, even though it looks like all the others: clad in faux adobe and surrounded by parking lots and strip malls. Don't fret—it's easy to forget about the nondescript setting once inside this glitzy miniature resort, which comprises several buildings set around a warren of lushly landscaped interior courtyards. Aesthetically, the rooms look Southwestern, with chunky carved-wood armoires, desks, and headboards reminiscent of a Spanish colonial hacienda. Pros:

Rooms have the usual upscale-chain doodads: mini-refrigerators, coffeemakers, hair dryers, clock radios—there's also high-speed Internet.

Cons:

Hotel lacks character; need to drive to Downtown. www.santafecourtyard.com. 213 rooms. In-room: Wi-Fi. In-hotel: restaurant, bar, pool, gym, laundry facilities, parking. Credit cards accepted.

38 Santa Fe Sage Inn
Santa Fe Sage Inn
725 Cerrillos Rd.
Santa Fe, NM 87505

On the southern edge of the Guadalupe District, this motel offers affordable low-frills comfort and surprisingly attractive (given the low rates) Southwestern decor within walking distance of the Plaza (six blocks). Special packages are available for three- and four-day stays during peak-season events. Get a room upstairs and in one of the rear buildings for the most privacy and quiet. Continental breakfast is served. Pros:

Comfortable, affordable, and close to downtown.

Cons:

Rooms on corner of Cerrillos and Don Diego can be noisy; unrenovated rooms lackluster. www.santafesageinn.com. 156 rooms. In-room: Wi-Fi. In-hotel: pool, gym, parking, some pets allowed. Credit cards accepted. Rate includes: Breakfast.
