“Great location for skiing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2010

This hotel is in a really nice location for skiing. You can either drive to the lifts yourself or use their shuttle (maybe 5 minutes if even). The service was great and the staff had good suggestions for restaurants! The breakfast was included and really good. They have a cute little hot tub on the second floor. Felt like great get-away hotel for a skiing trip!

We stayed at this hotel so that we didn't have to drive from all the way from the town of Taos. We were a few minutes away from the ski area. You could check snow conditions by looking out the window. When we weren't skiing, the kids played non-stop in the deep snow outside, a great treat for them because we don't get deep snow at home. The hotel has an outdoor hot tub in a perfect setting. Cant beat it for relaxing after a long ski day.

We really enjoyed our recent trip to Columbine. Susie & Marie were very nice and accommodating. I talked to them several times prior to our arrival due to a possible change in plans, arriving late, etc. and they were so nice. After I arrived and met them in person (along with Paul), I immediately realized that they were the "real deal"--hard working nice people who are trying to see that their guests have a great time.
Pros-clean, fairly priced, well-located, warm breakfast included, free shuttle to ski area, hot tub, gameroom w/big screen tv, refrigerator and microwave in room.
Cons-Can be loud if the other guests are loud, but if you let the office know about it, they will take care of it.
Overall, this is a well-managed hotel and a good overall value.

We wanted to get in some early season skiing at Taos and stayed at the Coumbine. The hotel had a lot to offer and was very comfortable at a very fair price. The owners and staff were great and made you feel like you were welcome friends. Between the hot breakfast the shuttle to the base area and the general friendliness of everyone there we know where we will be staying our next time in Taos. Al and Beth

We stayed at Columbine three nights over the Thanksgiving weekend. The rooms were cozy, clean and comfortable. The service was great- for your nightly rate you get free HOT breakfast, use of a hot tub, a lounge area with big screen and a computer, and an outdoor fireplace. The owners could not have been nicer. We neeeded to do a load of laundry and they actually let us use the inn's washer and dryer. The inn is just a little over a mile from the resort, so commuting back and forth takes less than five minutes. The reates were very reasonable, (comparable to hotels in the town of Taos, 30 minutes away, and the service couldn't be beat. If you don't want to pay a premium for ski-in ski-out but want to be close to the slopes, stay here.
