The Historic Taos Inn
Ranked #3 of 15 Hotels in Taos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 November 2013

My husband & I wanted a quick get away prior to Thanksgiving. We made reservations at the Taos Inn for a Saturday & Sunday night. We love historic Inns & the Taos Inn did not disappoint. We found the room to be comfortable, clean and warm!! We were not expecting 6" of snow and very cold weather!! The Inn kept the sidewalks clean and safe, and the lobby fireplace was kept burning. Normally we do not eat in hotel restaurants - because of the weather we ate at Doc. Martin's. Again we were not disappointed, the restaurant food was incredible. We also spent each evening at the Adobe Bar - right in the lobby of the Inn. The live entertainment was excellent each evening!!! We have already talked about a return trip to Taos, and we will be staying at the Taos Inn again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that opens out to the court yard. The courtyard is very serene - a lovely plans to sp...

First, you'll meet Chris, who after 17 years at the helm, knows where the ice berg looms low and sharp . . . pretty much the sort of Ship Captain who would have brought in the Titanic right on time. No request is considered a burden, and yet he manages to stay livin on Taos Time, alla time . . . guy's a prince. Smooth as a time-chiseled creek stone, lion-sure of himself, and all of this comes with a movie star smile. Man understands family, woulda liked to have met his.

Then, if you are very lucky, you'll meet Mary Ann, who runs housekeeping and whom you can't over-tip to get your laundry back tomorrow, baby, fresh, folded and fabulous . . . . does it after work at her home . . . yet she's uncomfortable accepting a dime for the work, so don't embarrass me, take care of this lady . . . truly, something god made, someone the mountain may never let go in the ground.

Then, if the snow sticks for you, which means your mountain luck is holding, Justin Reeves will introduce himself, and ever after, you will know Taos as Taos is. Guy knows everything and will do anything you need him to. What's that kind of attitude worth in these days of thundering selfishness. Neat guy, gorgeous cover-of-a-magazine wife and darling six year old Carter . . . real people who like real people, so be right around them.

And there is Jimmy Krack Korn who doubles as a playwright, which if she gets the one she's working on as right as she does office management, will make it to Broadway, and Taos will be the less for that.

And stunning Tara and lively Liz and rockin Richard (originally of Venice Beach and Bundy Drive. . . boy does it all and has been around, need I say more?) Ice for your giant cooler? Got it, what's your room number. And find tiny street water color artist Frank Trujillo he is a holy man. And don't miss the Pueblo (particularly if you are lucky enough to be invited--makes a difference, we have done our share of rack and ruin on these poor people who have survived a thousand years here, so that mountain loves them) and the Taos (awesome) and Harwood museums and . . . get permission from local artist Ed Sandoval (see his 2014 calendar of work in the lobby) to feed his four Arabian horses carrots mornings and evenings--religious experience daily--and get over for a walk-through of the lower school and then the sixth grade (just 11 and 12-years old) children's geometric design artwork at the Taos Waldorf School . . . something god made for sure . . . and feed a sandwich to a hungry dog, who's cold and hungry and you know you got the money . . . and when you see the magpies, know that they are NOT white (cheek, belly and under-wings) and black (head back and upper-wings) but white and BLUE--keep looking closely till the sun hits them right so you can see TRULY . . . listen just ask Chris, just ask Justin, just as Tara, just ask Liz, just ask Jimmy Krack, just ask Richard, just ask (and tip WELL0 Mary ann. This town, and its Inn is all of it, baby. I will never forget the month of November, 2013 . . . and I will be back to Taos and its Inn . . . and I mean every single word . . . but guess you can tell that.

Room Tip: Just talk to Chris directly and he will make it HAPPEN.

The Inn is really a reconstructed old Hacienda. And like any old house, rooms vary in size and loveliness. So if you go expecting cookie-cutter hotel rooms, you will be disappointed. To me, staying there is like visiting a favorite cousin who is kinda rich and has a fab cook and bartender. I even enjoy sitting in my room reading or sketching. I love some of the Taos art and craft galleries (not so much on the square), and the town is foodie heaven. For non-native Americans, the town was built on light and art and camaraderie. When you are staying at the Inn, you are staying in the home of an art patron. The patron, Doctor Martin, loved the light, the locals, his art buddies and their works, and cocktail time. If you let yourself, you too can feel it. The Taos Nine are all gone as is Doctor Martin, but the art works and Doc Martin's unfailing hospitality linger in the intense light of Taos.

Room Tip: If you need the internet a lot, you will probably spend time in the great room which is also the lob...

I stayed in Sandoval 205 which was big enough since it was just me (I would suggest adding a small table, though). Bed was comfortable. Room clean. The bar has excellent chili, and the restaurants blue corn blueberry pancakes come with real maple syrup. Yum. Live music every night, but things wind down by 10pm. I took advantage of the 3 nights for the price of 2, so at $50 a night this was by far the best bargain experience ever. Worth it at twice the price.

Room Tip: For the best experience I would suggest paying more for a larger room, maybe with a fireplace.

Warm, cozy, charming, and funky. Loved this sweet room complete with creaky floorboards. Very romantic and private. Clean. Great hot shower. Great bed and linens. Such a bargain. And walking distance to everything.
