Silver Saddle Motel

2810 Cerrillos Rd., Santa Fe, New Mexico, 87505, United States

This low-slung adobe property significantly transcends the generally sketchy quality of the several other budget motels along Cerrillos Road, thanks to the tireless efforts of its owner. There's a kitschy, Western aspect to the place—rooms are named for icons of the West (Annie Oakley, Wyatt Earp) and contain related plaques with colorful biographies and local cowboy art. Furnishings are decidedly Southwest: Mexican-tile bathrooms, serape tapestries, built-in bancos, and equipale chairs ("seat of the gods" made of woven wood and leather)are present in most. Enjoy breakfast on the covered ramada picnic area. The popular home-furnishings and gift emporium, Jackalope, is next door. The motel is across the street from the town's one strip club, which could be either a pro or a con.
