This was a nice place. It was very quiet. We were in the back in a room upstairs. The air conditioning didn't work but we were only staying one night so we didn't report it. This is convenient and right across the street from Walmart and a great coffee shop.

Interesting, quirky motel. The room was interesting, decent but not great, but with a definite southwest look. No breakfast, though they did offer free apricots in the office. Or was it peaches, but whatever, off their tree. Not new, but reasonably well kept and not too expensive for the location. Big wide open, almost park-like grounds that were very pet friendly, although it made me a little nervous as lots of the pet owners weren't cleaning up after their animals and some people were using like a picnic grounds. Internet worked but not great. I would return if I find myself in Taos again.

We booked thru Hotwire therefore, there are no refunds. Nevertheless, we left after 15 minutes and lost our money, but it was so filthy dirty we could not stay. This room hadn't been thoroughly cleaned in over a year. There was an electrical heating unit running around the perimeter of the room that was covered in dirt. Behind the beds it was also caked with dirt, hair and God knows what else. The carpets were dirty, stains and things had been spilled (milk?) and there was a crust on the carpet between the beds. Both comforters were faded and had holes, and were also dirty. We booked a non smoking room, and had to sign something saying we'd be charged $250.00 if there was any smoking in the room. Yet both blankets, really old and faded, had multiple cigarette burns on them. Mattress springs worn out. The sheets & towels, however, we're clean. I can understand the owners are having financial problems and cannot afford to replace things, but there is no excuse for a dirty room. We paid $78.69 on Hotwire for a room that should rent for $40.00. We left and went to Comfort Suites -- spotlessly clean, a king & queen & sofa, table and kitchenette for $ 79.00. Do not even think about staying at this seedy motel.

Okay, so what's not to love? The rooms are clean, homey, and decorated southwest-style. The folks who run the place are both kind and informative. This hotel has all the amenities of a much more expensive place, at a very affordable rate. Hot tub, laundry facility, free wi-fi - and it's quiet and quaint, too. It's certainly not what one would expect from a hotel located right across the main drag from Walmart.

Room Tip: The rooms in the back half of the property may be slightly quieter - but road noise is negligible fr...

I keep coming back to this place because it's clean, reasonable, cozy, not crowded and the outdoor hot tub works. I generally don't frequent Taos all that much and I've been in more quaint, charming, historical places that are not worth the price. A couple of bed and breakfast places can get my attention, but this place is good for the overnight or a week’s stay. Lobby employee is efficient and quick. The Sun God is right across the street from Wal-Mart. That might turn some off, but I like the one stop shopping and hop back to the hot tub.

Room Tip: In the back next to the hot tub

Want to feel like you are important? The staff at this lodge knocks guest service out of the ballpark!! Super quiet..very clean rooms and the feel of the southwest in each and every room. Not a hotel for the traveler that needs the "cookie cutter" feel...but if you want a little local flavor this is the place.

We stayed in December for a ski trip ... the staff is wonderful, the location is great and offers a free shuttle to Taos Ski Valley. That said, the rooms are old and dumpy. The power went out several times during our stay and the rooms are on radiator heat, so temperature fluctuated. Was it worth the stay for the price? Probably, but these are very basic accomodations,
