De Anza—named for a Spanish governor that discovered San Francisco, and was governor for the NM territory for a decade.  Developed by an well respected business man and anglo who traded with the Native Americans. Built with Zuni craftsmen using Zuni rock, material and labor.


The De Anza Motor Lodge epitomizes the mingling of New Mexico’s cultures, traditions, and history.


Regarding the De Anza, Wallace once explained:

I was selling my Indian goods around the country, and every hotel I stopped at, I had to haul by mugs and jewelry up and down the stairs. I saw the need for motels. Didn’t have to walk up and down those stairs. Park right at your door. It was a miracle!


- Charles Garret Wallace—developer/owner/trader of the De Anza Motor Lodge
