We just spent one night at Benavides in Taos. The two of us found the cookies and sweets irresistible at the afternoon tea, again proving New Mexico a bane for eating light, let alone dieting.
Then, the breakfast with the New Mexican fritatta and homestyle chili, plus homemade granola with yogurt and local peaches put the emphasis on the Breakfast part of the B&B name.
The bed was most comfortable, the room was airy and clean.
The reason for the 3 rating is that the details of the rooms need some attention. The heater woke us up when it came on in the night, and the little refrigerator was noisier than it should have been. Also, there were just some missing light bulbs here and there inside and out, and the hot tub was out of commission. Then, the internet worked perfectly but was only available in the lobby area, which is closed after about 7:00 pm.
I can recommend staying at Benavides, but keep the above in mind when setting your expectations.

If you are tired of impersonal hotels, this charming and historic spot is for you. Price is slightly higher than banal local hotels but worth it. Barbara and Tom, the owners are part of Taos history and full of stories and hints about the area. Rooms are all different and appointed with attention to New Mexico's colours and architecture. The Terracotta Room has two Queen beds, a huge bathroom and is part of Barbara's ancestral home. The full breakfasts are served and plentiful; there is also tea and great baking in the late afternoon. Both Barbara and Tom tirelessly attend to any request. Regarding negative comments on this page, it should be noted that this inn is almost always full and the owners employ locals, many of whom don't have English. Repeat clients of whom we met many, speak to the success of this Inn.

Room Tip: Main building is the most modern.

The Inn is absolutely lovely, and just a block off the main part of town. Our side street was quiet and a convenient one block walk to the restaurants. Our room was impeccably decorated, bright and lively. The room was small and cozy but we didn't go for one of the higher priced rooms. The food is amazing with a generous breakfast and bountiful afternoon tea. There are a number of comfortable sitting areas around the inn including a large and sunny sitting room off the lobby and a beautiful courtyard. The main Inn has two floors. We stayed on the first level and I'm not sure I would want to haul my suitcase to an upstairs room although I'm told the rooms upstairs have a view of the mountains. The staff is friendly and helpful and we loved our stay.

Our group of 21 stayed for two nights at this great B&B. The rooms were great, (all different configurations), the art work and decor was outstanding, and the food (breakfast) was to die for!! The location of the inn was convenient to the Plaza, and art galleries. I would highly recommend this B&B.

Brilliant Spanish-style accommo with superb breakfast and superb highly motivated and caring staff. Beautiful large room and retro contents. Very central - Next to Kit Carson museum
Couldn't have been better. Best place visited on my 5 week US tour.

Room Tip: Ask for the large retro room in the white bungalow
