“Pet-friendly Oasis in Taos”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

Went for to Taos for an anniversary get-away, with our two well-behaved dogs in tow. Very large, nicely decorated clean room, super comfy bed, bathroom a bit too small (but, oh well). Our room had a little patio at both the front & back, so we could sit outside with the dogs & overlook grassy and nicely landscaped grounds . The dogs were in heaven. Looked to be a good breakfast, though we only had coffee (my husband said it was the best motel coffee he'd ever had). Location is great, center of town, so can walk all over Taos but the place itself has a feel of seclusion because the grounds are so spacious. It's not a well-kept secret. In the parking lot, we counted license plates from 15 different states (other than N.M.) on a Sunday night. Friendly accommodating staff. We're going to make it our go-to place in Taos from now on.

Room Tip: Ask for room on first floor with patio at both ends.

I will definitely stay again at El Pueblo Lodge in Taos, NM. It had some huge pluses for me. First it's pet friendly. That's HUGE! Second, after my stay there I learned something about myself. I like staying in nice non chain lodging. Anyone can stay in a chain hotel. This motor lodge had an old school essence with a definite Southwest flair. Our large room with two queen beds was perfect for us--not over the top fancy schmancy but we were well satisfied. It was extremely well maintained, clean, and the staff there were extremely friendly and were proud of their property-as well they should be. We found the property to be centrally located and near or in the action. If you don't need a pet friendly room they have lodging with fireplaces, which intrigued me. The free breakfast buffet was in one of the coziest areas I've ever been to. The buffet had a huge assortment of items. Three charming areas to sit decorated with that Southwest flair you expect in Taos. The lady in charge of the buffet was extremely nice, as well as the entire staff. Fido loved the huge grassy area right outside our door. Loved El Pueblo!

Room Tip: if you don't have pets a room with a fireplace might be interesting….

We stayed in a beautiful king room with a fireplace. Liked it so much we opted to stay another night. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. They also provide a well stocked continental breakfast. Pet friendly!

This was a good place to use as a base for exploring Taos. Very close to lots of sights. Room had two comfortable beds and bathroom though dated, was very cheery and comfortable. Staff was very helpful and the breakfast was more than enough. The lady helping at breakfast was a charmer, always ensuring that everyone had enough coffee. She seemed to really enjoy her work and was dedicated to it. Price as very reasonable.

This place isn't fancy, but our room was clean and comfortable. It's within walking distance of the Plaza, so that's a boon with parking at a premium. We didn't eat the breakfast, so don't know about its quality. (With Michael's right down the street, that's our breakfast preference!)

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms with balconies are our choice, but you must be in pretty good shape to do the sta...

This hotel lived up to its reputation. There were all kinds of nice touches in the room, and the grounds were well-maintained. Staff was helpful and friendly. Ample breakfast, nice hot tub and pool. Would definitely return and recommend.

I have stayed at several hotels/motels in Taos. None can compare favorably with the convenience, comfort and cleanliness of this classic southwestern style motel. The rooms are spacious enough; the bed comfortable; the linen seems new with feather comforter. There is an obvious attention to keeping the rooms in proper order. It is quiet, parking is adequate. The continental breakfast is just short of a full meal (which you can get at Michael's Kitchen a easy walk from the El Pueblo. For a short stay I don't feel that I needed anything more than what they have to offer.
