“Charming Oasis”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Charming,clean, quiet and an excellent value that's motorcycle friendly! This boutique hotel is run by Cindy & Jasper who go out of their way to make your stay feel like home. The location is convenient to everything. The grounds are well manicured with hanging baskets of flowers, beautiful trees and umbrellaed picnic tables in a lovely lawn area. We will definitely stay here again when visiting Taos!

I stayed at The Sun God Lodge for one night in August 2014 whilst traveling around New Mexico with a friend.

The hotel is a little oasis off a busy road and the owner is nice.

I don't think I heard any cars in the night and our room (two queen beds) was lovely; very tasteful decor and comfy. Shower and Wifi, fine. My only complaint was that the tv was very old (no menu functionality) and as it was a very hot night, an AC would've been better than the fan.

Unfortunately I did not get to use the hot tub but some other people were enjoying using it on our way back from supper in town.

Desire being at the cheaper end of accommodation in Taos, I would recommend the hotel to all.

Our room was one of the lower priced, this after being booked in another room first which flooded after flushing the toilet. Relatively clean but needed refurbished. We checked in on a Sunday and was very quiet. However Monday brought many check ins and quite a bit of noise. Overall good for the low price. WIFI very sporadic.

This beautiful hotel is one of the bright spots during my recent visit to Taos. I've always heard that the people of Taos are very special, and this hotel is one of the reasons why.

My camper broke down in Taos, and not knowing the town very well, I checked into the Quality Inn, at over $100 a night. When I mentioned this to a friend, she was outraged, and called the Sun God Lodge. Well, they gave me a rate that was about half of the Quality Inn's rate, let me check in early, let me stay well past the check out time until my camper was ready, and didn't charge me the extra fee for my dog. I was treated like a valued guest.


Gasper and Cindy are the property managers there, and are extremely friendly. Cindy even brought my little dog some home made bacon strips. I mean, just superb people.

My friends were right when they said that the People of Taos are special, and this was proof.
I wish Tripadvisor had 6 stars, because the Sun God Lodge in Taos is a very special place.

Room Tip: I saw some of the other reviews given to this property. I can only say that a bit of courtesy goes a...

My fiancé and I stayed here in June 2014. I made my reservation over the phone and was asked for my credit card # to hold the room until I arrived to pay cash. I also made requested a pet friendly room. When I arrived I was told that my card had already been charged- this was without my approval. I made a point to ask again that our room was pet friendly, which I was told it was. We dropped our dogs and luggage off and went to dinner. Upon return we were greeted by two VERY rude owners who proceeded to YELL at us about our dogs who had barked, that we tried to hide them because our room "was not even pet friendly", that the cops had been called, and that we needed to vacate the premises IMMEDIATELY. With calm heads, we did as (I'd like to say asked, but we were TOLD) to leave. Since we did NOT stay here at all I asked for a refund of my money- I was denied my room fee and charged another $100 on top of that. I understand that dogs who bark can be a hinderance to business but I did, in fact, request the pet friendly room (IN THE BACK OF THE PROPERTY- which I also did not receive) and my phone # was on file... I never received a call. I would have gladly returned to deal with my animals. The fact that we were so rudely and hatefully greeted, accused, and asked to leave led me to file a BBB complaint. The BBB sent my complaint for follow up three times with no response. These people are horrible!!!! Do not stay here and do not risk your money being STOLEN!!!!
