Snakedance is located right in the middle of the Taos Ski Valley resort complex, just steps away from a few (mediocre) restaurants; other condos; one coffee stand; and ski gift shops. Staff were wonderful- friendly and helpful. However, there's constant construction going on right next to the condos, so I woke up to drilling/electric saw/banging sounds every morning around 8. Not especially restful if you like to sleep in. Constant construction also meant several power outages, one that lasted several hours. Not sure if these were planned outages, but I did not receive notice about them ahead of time. The units vary in size, views, and comfort- for example, rm. 310 has NO WINDOW. Rm. 314 looks directly into another condo unit. My one bedroom came with a kitchen equipped with all kinds of appliances (dishwasher, microwave, fridge, conventional oven, mixer, coffee maker, toaster, blender) in addition to pots/pans/plates/silverware/etc. Gas stove with one working burner. DirectTV on two TVs (one in living room, one in bedroom). Everything looked clean and fairly new. My unit also came with a stereo sound system + various burned CDs, but other rooms did not have this. There was also a small selection of family-friendly DVDs + paperbacks for most ages. Housekeeping comes by once a day to ask if you need fresh towels or trash bags; they change bed linens + vacuum once a week. I think you can pay more if you want this service more often. Plenty of extra blankets in the closet. Noise from neighboring rooms was minimal, even w/their TVs on, but hallway noises (talking + slamming doors) can get loud. Also, in the summer, there are several camps that rent space here, so you may be around lots of campers. Snakedance has a tiny convenience store that is stocked with liquor, chips, candy, ramen + a few pieces of fruit. Overall, the facility is lovely, but I wouldn't pay $100/night to listen to construction noises all day. Also, the food available is overpriced and not especially special; I suggest getting sandwich supplies at a grocery store, and making the drive into Taos for dinners. 20 min drive to Arroyo Seco (tiny town with fabulous Taos Cow ice cream + pottery shops); 30 min drive to Taos itself. Watch out for the speed trap near the Amizette Inn; I often saw a cop parked there.
