El Pueblo Inn
Lonely Planet review
Though essentially a motel, the 1958 Pueblo was built prior to pre-fab construction and has pretty architectural features, tasteful clean rooms and well-manicured gardens. With a huge heated pool and spa, it's great for kids. For some, it's within walking distance of the plaza (six long blocks.)
The comfortable older 'Adobe' rooms with exposed brick walls and wood furnishings are cheaper than the new 'Sonoma' ones, which are larger, fresher-looking new ones with semi-private patios. The Sonoma rooms also come with down comforters, recliners and DVD players, and two queens or one king bed; some also have fireplaces. Various fountains in the courtyard and flower-filled gardens assist in keeping traffic noise bearable and the pool's big enough to swim laps in. Breakfast includes fresh-squeezed juice and locally baked pastries, a sweet touch at this independently-owned motel.
