Found this hotel to be very well taken care of and very good hospitality. Central located to Taos activities with a relaxed park like setting. Not a high rise hotel but spread out for maximum ability to avoid noise etc. Good parking and rooms had all the desired comforts that I find desirable for being on my own. Fridge and... More

I was in Taos for several days for the Wool Festival. My room was wonderfully spacious and I enjoyed the lay out of the property. The bed was comfortable and every night was quiet. The place is not new and it shows, but for the price.... it was great. I could hear the plumbing of an adjacent room, but no... More

(orange juice, apple juice, water, coffee, bagels, muffin, cornflakes, eggs, sausages, ...). we checked out also the heated pool and... More

First of all, this place is older it is in the process of being updated and it is clean. We stayed here two times, first on our way to Colorado to visit family and then on the way back home. Both for two nights. The rooms are setup in separate buildings so you don't really feel like your at a... More

The room smelled horrible, the furniture was stained, the bathroom was gross and even worse the sheets looked like they had not been washed. I could not sleep at all the room smelled so bad... More

We checked a few properties and decided to give this one a go after the filth, bright light and noise at quality inn. We ended up staying the rest of our trip here. Really quiet, good beds. Like most places with tubs, this one's tub didn't drain very well while taking a shower. The included breakfast was good.

Clean but it needs to be updated. Hotel and rooms were clean but the rooms need a update. They are very out dated. Refrigerated air unit was too loud to sleep with it running. Windows did not work properly. Staff was friendly. Pool was not working.

Overall the hotel is a great place to stay. I had trouble with the person working check-in, but once I was able to talk with the Manager all of my coordination issues were completely taken care of.

We had a great time and the accommodations were good. We were glad they are pet friendly. We will stay again and take fishing gear with us. Maybe we will have time too take in the wineries and breweries. ;)
