This is a very nice B&B, and offers terrific breakfast and baked goods. However, we found that the room needs some attention. While the room was clean, the curtain was torn, the blinds on the door still allowed light inside, bulbs too dim, there was nowhere to put things in the bathroom, and the bed was HORRIBLY lumpy. Slept very...

We were only able to stay in Taos for one night, and Casa Benavides was -- by far -- the best place we stayed during our ten-day Southwest vacation. Our room ("Fechin" -- which I assume isn't pronounced with a hard "ch"), was spacious, spotless, and nicely decorated, with a beautiful fireplace and a comfortable king-sized bed. Breakfast was fruit...

We were not prepared for how simply perfect Casa Benavides is. It is in a terrific location, only a short walk to the historic square. Our room was magnificent -- large, quiet, with a wood-burning Adobe fireplace. The breakfast was fabulous -- fruit, yogurt, fresh baked muffins, and a hot breakfast choice of baked egg casserole, or waffles or French...

Once again we brought along some friends as we returned to the best B & B in Taos this summer. Each room, the Chimayo and the Cowboy, was comfortable and fit our needs perfectly. The afternoon "tea" was a great way to recoup after traveling and really kept us satisfied till dinner (fabulous carrot cake and several other fresh homemade...

I've traveled to Taos for 30 years but never stayed in this charming B&B until August 2015. The hotel is delightful and classic Taos owned by Barbara and John McCarthy, who grew up in Taos. They have tea time in the dining room which includes complimentary tea, lemonade and home-baked goodies made in their kitchen. Items such as Mexican wedding...

If you want the flavor of Taos, in a B&B with individually decorated rooms, architecturally and aesthetically, this is the place. Clean, comfortable, well lighted and within walking distance to most of the interesting places. One drawback in these times; no Wi-Fi in the room. The Breakfast is to go off your diet for. We didn't realize that there were...

Great central location with unique rooms and a 5 Star breakfast which is included. Traveling with a group we had a variety of different size and shape rooms, no one was disappointed. All decorated in various southwestern styles. If you are exploring Taos this is an excellent place to stay!
