Know before you go is an important thing to remember any time you go 'hosteling'. This was no exception. As noted in another review, this is not the Waldorf, or even a Travel Lodge, but it is not meant to be. My family and I stayed in the new Tipis in the courtyard, and this was a first experience for me. Yes, the accommodations are modest, but comfortable and clean. The staff was welcoming and helpful, the other 'Wolfers' and travelers were wonderful not only to me, but to my family. This was also a first experience for my 14 year old son, and the folks there made him look forward to the next opportunity to visit. The town of Arroyo Seco was wonderful with great (if few) places to eat and extremely accessible to both Taos, and Santa Fe. We are looking forward to our next trip to the Mansion!
