Our stay was very pleasant. Yes it is just a motel with no interior corridors. But the nicest one of these I have ever stayed at. Landscaped nicely, great location, not near any loud traffic although it is on the main street in "downtown" Taos.
The pet fee was very reasonable and everyone greeted the princess Tesla in the way she expects, guests and staff alike. The manager's dogs who live on the property were very laid back and well behaved and did not try to engage our dog when they met. Was able to have breakfast with our canine family in the plastic enclosed heated patio section.
Room was large and comfortable. We took the king with fireplace. The wood fire was very relaxing and made it feel more like vacation retreat than a motel room. The heater worked very well in November in Taos which is getting quite cold at night already. It could have been drafty with the sliding door to the grass yard plus the updraft in the fireplace, but it was not.
Yes the upstairs sounded like construction workers were pounding away when the guests above walked around. But the ground floor room next to the pet area is worth that. Anyway Taos visitors don't stay up late so much it seems because the guests above it settled down early, just like us.
Taos is an expensive town to leisure in, we really appreciated the very reasonable rates so we could spend our money on other things. In addition the Pork, apricot habanero and fried onion Taco from the taco stand next to the Taos Alehouse across the street was just the best gourmet junky ummmmm.
Will be back to stay at the el Pueblo Lodge again, and again.
