Went into town to find my parents a room for two nights due to the elevation issues my mother had in ski valley. Walked up on this little hidden jewel. The inside sitting room is precious. Beautiful art and decor. The room was so cute and authentic New Mexico decor. The manager and her staff were absolutely wonderful. They prepared...

We enjoyed our three-night stay here over President’s Day weekend. Wonderful breakfast buffet, starting with delicious homemade granola and muffins with various egg options each day. Afternoon tea included fresh-baked cakes and cookies and drinks. The location was great – just a three-minute walk to the plaza and same block as the Kit Carson Museum. Our room, Acoma, was large...

The ONLY place we stay in Taos. Beautiful, "Earthereal", variety of room options for every family: studios with kitchen, 1 & 2 bedrooms. We've stayed in several different rooms. Each unique, fireplaces in every suite [I think], and several hot tubs on the premises. The McCarthy's have long family roots in Taos. They are wonderful hosts and hands-on running the...

When you get Comfortable beds, a great location, plus a gracious, helpful staff what more could you want? Maybe a lovely hot breakfast and mid afternoon treats served in a beautifully decorated dining room? Well you have all that here. Loved Taos and this place.

My Wife and I stayed at Casa Benevidez last weekend and it was perfect! Our room was very nice and had its own Kiva style wood burning fireplace. The staff was extremely friendly, and the breakfast options were more than sufficient. They have a hot tub on premise, which is great in the cold weather. The only reason I didn't...

This was our second stay at Casa Bienavides and it remains high on our list of favorites. I think most of the B and Bs in Taos are overpriced but Casa Bienavides is a top notch inn where it is clear the owners are cognizant of what hospitality is all about. The breafast is truly remarkable as are the staff--very...

After searching through hundreds of reviews trying to find a decent place to stay in Taos, I found a "Gem"! The room was decorated with the famous Georgia O'Keeffe prints and skull. I believe each room is custom decorated to fit the southwest style. The inn was in a perfect location to walk to galleries and restaurants. The absolute best...

We returned after 15 years and found a much improved facility that will be our preferred place to stay ofnour annual visits to Taos. Old and quirky to be sure but with charm and congenial staff to make it entirely enjoyable. And very good breakfasts, too.

For various reasons, we generally avoid bed and breakfast places while traveling, but I'm glad we made this exception. In a charming and historic town, this has to be one of the most charming and historic of inns. Beautiful decor...hard to take it all in, actually, as the place is almost an art museum itself. Since it's located in the...

Every chance I get to visit Taos, I like to stay here. I have stayed here for years and enjoy it every time. The hospitality is unrivaled, and the rooms are comfy and warm. Beds you sink into and lots of covers on those cold days! If you are still cold, fire up the kiva fireplace in your room with...
