More About Santa Fe, NM Hotels...

Finding a cheap hotel in and around Santa Fe

Another good way to save on lodging in Santa Fe is to plan ahead. Many hotels in the area offer discounts to those who pay for their entire stay in advance. You can also often find a deal on a hotel by staying a few blocks away from (instead of right on) the downtown plaza.

Alternative Lodging in Santa Fe with Airbnb and Hostels

Hotels aren't your only lodging option when you visit Santa Fe. There are many unique properties, ranging from loft apartments to single rooms that are listed on Airbnb as well as an international hostel. Both offer a cheap alternative to conventional lodging.

You can rent a room via Airbnb for under $50. However, most Airbnb options cost at least that much, whether you opt for a private room or an entire home or apartment (although Airbnb accommodations often offer perks that you don’t get with a hotel, like full kitchens). Overall, there are more than 400 Airbnb rentals available in the Santa Fe area, so there is something to fit every taste and travel budget. Another perk to choosing a room share is that it makes it easy to connect with locals who can give you pointers on how to enjoy the area.

Santa Fe is also home to a number of bed and breakfast inns, including the Inn of the Five Graces and the Inn and Spa at Loretto. Many of these inns, especially those in downtown, are located in historic buildings.

Getting around Santa Fe

Getting around Santa Fe is easy. The city sits directly on I-25, which connects it to Albuquerque to the south and Colorado to the north. Santa Fe also offers public bus service throughout the city and a commuter rail system that connects Santa Fe to Albuquerque and other nearby communities.

Airport Transportation and Lodging

Santa Fe Municipal Airport, located ten miles southwest of the city, offers limited commercial service as well as general aviation (private aircraft) facilities. Many visitors fly into Albuquerque International Sunport, located about 70 miles to the south. Commuter train service connects Albuquerque Airport with Santa Fe.

What to See and Do in Santa Fe

There's plenty to see and do in Santa Fe, whether you're interested in culture, outdoor sports, shopping and/or history. Santa Fe is the oldest capital city in the United States, founded in 1610 by the Spanish, and remnants of the Spanish colonial era are visible in the downtown architecture and the Palace of Governors, the town's original center of government.

Art lovers will enjoy the city's 300 art galleries as well as the Georgia O'Keefe Museum, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, and the Museum of International Folk Art. For outdoor enthusiasts, Santa Fe offers excellent hiking and biking trails, including parts of the historic Santa Fe Trail, as well as thousands of acres of national forest just outside of town and world-class skiing in nearby Taos.
