The facility was clean and perfectly acceptable. The breakfast certainly lacked any substance. See full review

average stay

This place would have great potential if they just updated it a little. The rooms were nice with the fireplace but a little outdated and bathrooms could have been cleaner. Breakfast was average. Eggs were dried out. Liked the separate buildings. Had a resort feel

OK place to stay

The room was typical for a moderate room in Taos. The wall paper was falling down on a few corners. The bathroom was clean but not perfectly clean. A little over priced for a 2 star hotel. The lobby was decorated nicely. Not much to the breakfast. Went to eat somewhere else. Guess I would stay there again because unless you want to pay high dollar, I think it was comparable to the other 2 star hotels. The bedding was clean. The rooms need updating and new furniture. The girl at the desk was very friendly.

Taos get away

The staff was very nice. I was put in a room farthest away from the pool and hot tub. The pool was cloudy the hot tub over chlorinated. there was an out dated tv. and the wall paper was peeling. a very large stain on the carpet and a very stale smell to the room. Taos NM is so beautiful that i was fine with the rate, but the room could have used some work.

Oooh, smelly

When we arrived and were checking in, an employee other than the one checking us in kept interrupting her and talking to her, causing check-in to take much longer than it should. We arrived at our room and it appeared clean upon entering, but there was an unpleasant "dirty feet" smell in the room. We opened windows and aired it out and it was better. We went to the pool area so our son could swim awhile and noticed that most of the exteriors of the buildings were in disrepair with stucco cracking and coming off of most of them. The grounds were not very well kept either. The TV, microwave and refrigerator were all up against the same wall with a receptacle with only two positions available, so when we wanted to use the microwave we had to pull it out, unplug the TV, then plug it in. When done with the microwave, we had to pull back out, unplug it and plug the TV back in. The bed was fairly comfortable and it was quiet so we slept fairly well. In the morning I was going to do some exercises but when I went down to the floor noticed quite a bit of dirt and trash including an old orange peel under the dresser so I didn't feel comfortable doing my exercises on the floor. When we showered, the bath was not draining and we ended up standing in several inches of dirty water that would not drain. We will not be back to this hotel.

Crusty

I expected much better. The room was not so clean, the windows had cracks in the glass, the curtains were frayed and had holes and the couch had stains on it. The sidewalks were all cracked and uneven covered with dirt and bird droppings, The stairs were rusted, the lights on the grounds were busted and unmaintained, the landscaping of the grounds was overgrown, the enclosed pool had an off smell and the some vending areas of different buildings had the doors torn off and no machines. The one ice vending machine had almost no ice. The eggs at breakfast were over cooked, dry, and tasteless, there were no sausages or bacon, and some of the chairs had food stains on them. The milk was good. The whole of the interior and exterior rooms and common areas all need a lot of maintenance and cleaning. I wouldn't recommend this motel to anyone. And the owner parks his Range Rover smack dab in the middle of where guest would park to check in and out, causing blocks in the drive way area, so I guess that indicates where his priorities are.

Bar and Restaraunt

Whwn we made the reservations for this hotel we thought that there was an on site Bar and Restaraunt which in fact there is BUT it was under construction we were not made aware of that until we were checking in. Other than that it was a fine stay.

A bit dirty for a three star

this is more like a two star. It may be better when they fix the restaurant in the lobby as paint is peeling from the ceiling they need to do a better job with cleaning the bathrooms
