Can someone recommend a nice, moderately priced hotel in Santa Fe that would be conveniently located for first time tourists to Santa Fe? My wife and I are retired and are planning on visiting once the world is a bit more sane. Thanks for reading this.

Try to stay near the Plaza. I have stayed at the Old Santa Fe Inn and the Inn of the Governors a couple of blocks away from the Plaza and liked both hotels. Nice rooms with a Santa Fe feel, good breakfast, and free parking although the Inn of the Governors has underground parking that is tight for a large SUV or truck. Both are currently in the $130-140 a night range as may be Hotel St. Francis closer to the Plaza. Anything less expensive will probably be farther out such as the Santa Fe Motel and Inn and Guadalupe Inn which get good reviews. Prices may be lower in the fall as summer is high season. If you prefer large modern hotels, the Eldorado and Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza are offering some good rates right now but charge for parking. I use travel websites and their map feature to compare ratings, prices, and locations.

The Sage Inn is just outside of the Paseo de Peralta "loop" but is about as reasonably priced (<$100) as one can get in that area.

I agree. That's our go-to, when we're not doing VRBO / AirBnB.

I agree that Sage Inn is probably the best reasonably priced place fairly close to the plaza. They even have a shuttle if you don't want to walk (not sure how it is affected by covid though). And for moderately priced, Inn of the Governors.

The Motel 6's in town are well-priced and quite decent (I've stayed in them), and there's one in or near downtown. (It may be priced a little higher than the rest, but still cheap, compared to everything else: around $50 for the ones a little farther out, varying only slightly by season.)

R4T is right. The one on Cerrillos Rd. is maybe 5 miles south of downtown but it's $10 cheaper, maybe more. In October 2016 I spent a week in New Mexico buying up movies and cd's and vinyl as the Hastings Entertainment franchise closed their stores. Bought stuff from Farmington to Santa Fe to Albuquerque to Roswell to Hobbs to Carlsbad. Had a blast!

Back to 6, IIRC they have 4 Motel 6's in Santa Fe (it HAS been a few years since I've been to Santa Fe though.) I do either Motel 6 or Budget Inn, Motel 6's seem to usually have a restaurant or two close by the motel.

There are two Motel 6's on Cerrillos, one has a Denny's across the street. There's one downtown, and there might be a 4th one near downtown too, or near the Sage Inn, not sure.

I have to say, having stayed in Motel 6's (and other budget lodging, like Howard Johnson's) in various locations between SF and Northern California, that Santa Fe is the only one (or group of them) that doesn't jack up prices during high season, during weekends or during 3-day weekends/holidays. The price remains the same, except in the summers it goes up $10 or $20, max. In other locations, the price can double or even triple. It's outrageous! And believe me, Motel 6 franchisees could make a bundle of money over-charging during Indian market week, but they're very impressive in resisting the urge to gouge people. IDK, maybe there's a local ordinance that prohibits that, but whatever the reason is, I'm grateful for it.
