“So Accommodating!”
Reviewed 13 October 2010

I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights while traveling with a Habitat for Humanity volunteer group. The staff at the hotel were amazingly accommodating to us. One staff member in particular even gave us a carton of ice cream when we were celebrating a birthday. :)

The hotel is walking distance from Taos Plaza, and right across the street from a pizza place, laundromat and grocery store. There is a small pool, and a courtyard with a fire pit.

I highly recommend this hotel!

Thanks for the accolades. Glad to supply Habitat with reasonable and quality lodging for the house building teams. It is just one of the numberous local charitable efforts we help with. Thanks for helping Habitat Taos!

As my daughter who lives in Taos recently had a baby, I went down from Toronto to help them out. In order to do that I needed my sleep! So I checked into Indian Hills for just over two weeks. I was delighted to enjoy a friendly environment. My room was clean, the breakfast unexpected and good. Daniel does an amazing job, as do all the staff. Thanks everyone!

Our sincere apologies for providing a room that sounds like wasn't up to the quality we intend to provide. Our housekeeping standards are written and managed to provide Guests a clean comfortable accommodation. Our continental breakfast includes breads, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, oat meal, juice, and coffee with occaisional extras. We do offer the most reasonable lodging in downtown Taos and have satisfied about 9,000 Guests a year for over 100 years. We do share Trip Advisor comments with our team with the intent of improving our service. Thanks for your business and we hope you'll give us a try again.

Room we had was recently updated - newer mattress/linens, bath fixtures/tile, very comfortable. Location is great, close to downtown area. Breakfast is minimal, but better than nothing. We would stay here again.

I was charged a $75 smoking fee even though we did not smoke in the room. It's just my word against the management of this inn but we definitely did not smoke in the room . I disputed the charge on my credit card account but it was not taken off. This is not the end of my dispute. I will challenge it again with my credit card company. As you can tell by the other reviews this place is probably not getting very many bookings so they have to make their money any way they can. And as a footnote this was my last resort during Spring Break because we decided to go at the last minute and this was the only place that had openings. Now I know why.

As an independent, we are often one of the last to fill even during busy periods. Sorry you were dis-satisfied. Our policy is to charge for Guests who smoke in the room. We even go to the trouble of retaining any evidence such as butts, ashes. Amazing that some Guests will stand in an open doorway, hold the cigaret outside the door, and claim they didn't smoke in the room. Others will do the same with an open window. We are quite hesitant to charge a cleaning fee for smoking in the room since it does stimulate credit card disputes. We also charge a far lower fee than many properties. About 90% of our visitors grade us overall as an A or B. Again, we're sorry we didn't meet your needs and expectations.

I booked a room at the last minute at the Indian Hills Inn Taos Plaza because our timeshare rental started the day after we arrived in Taos. Boy - what a shocker! The first room we were given had dirty linens and had not been cleaned. We were promptly given a second room which had been made up. The carpet was nasty, there was a squashed cricket on the bathroom floor and the room was very dingy. I booked this room through Hotwire and my impression is that the rooms in the other wing were nicer and renovated. Ask if your room has been renovated before staying here. My room was disgusting.

Sorry you were unhappy with your stay. Even our HK team make mistakes and leave an occaisional room uncleaned and the dead bug. Our fault for letting you find it rather than us! Our standards need to be where you expect them to be! Carpet was old when you visited and has been 100% replaced as of 12/2010. Most folks appreciate the exceptional quality of the room furnishings and beds (slightly used from a 5 Star Las Vegas property). You were in the family rooms with 2 queen beds. The tub surround was new as of 2008 along with bath floor tile, comfortors, and paint. If you're returning to Taos and your timeshare isn't available, email the hotel and remind us of your Trip ADvisor review and we'll try to accommodate you far better next time!

Like others, we were a little hesitant do to some of the reviews of the IHI, but had a very pleasant stay. The entire staff was great, and one man even chopped wood for the outdoor fireplace so my partner could enjoy a "campfire" on his birthday! Yes, the rooms might have a lingering smell of cigarette smoke, but were clean and comfortable. If you want granite tile and all the foo-foo trappings, go back to Aspen. The IHI has character.

Muchas gracias for your straight forward review! I do apologize for any "lingering smell of smoke". That's why we do charge people when we do find evidence of smoking in a NON smoking room. Hope we'll ski you soon in Taos!
