This place is in the middle of town. The rooms are clean, comfortable and cozy. The decoration is inviting and you get a complete breakfast in the morning. If you are cold, start a fire and relax by the heat. If you are looking for an affordable and nice place to stay, this is it!

This beautiful Bed and Breakfast made me feel like I was in "Alice in Wonderland" with all of the beautiful decorations and paintings and plants and just all. It's hidden away but a great treasure. Carrie took very good care of me and Paco (the owner) is a gem! He does most of the designing his self. Each room is... More

What a find! This place has such interesting attention to detail in the decor. Paco has done a wonderful job of decorating this place, and his warm hospitality has made this trip a delight. Walking distance to the plaza and excellent restaurants is a bonus. If we're in Taos again, this will definitely be our destination lodging. Comfortable beds and... More

I visited Taos from out of state between 1984 and 1994, then finally moved to New Mexico. In that initial 10-year period, I stayed in many different inns in Taos, from top to bottom. It was in 1992 that I found La Dona Luz (then called El Rincon). I can say unequivocally - this establishment is peerless. Since 1994, it... More

This is our second time here and it won't be our last! Paco and Carey are awesome hosts. We really enjoyed our suite in the Red Willow and breakfasts in the morning. Always a Layed Back type of atmosphere and convenient to everything downtown. We walked everywhere and enjoyed the ambiance of being in an old Adobe in the middle... More

We stayed here for three nights, as this was the minimum stay in order to reserve during the holidays. The location is good on US 64 across from the Taos plaza, and we found it all OK having scouted it out on Google street view. Traffic is nearly always bad at the entrance to the property, you can really only... More

We travelled as part of a larger group of extended family and each family group was able to find the ideal room/suite for their needs. My children (6,3,and 1) were welcomed. Paco and his staff were incredibly accommodating and met every need. Someone was always available to help. The hotel itself is beautiful - it feels like you are staying... More

This was our second stay at La Dona Luz and it hasn't lost its charm and appeal in the 6 years since our first visit. Paco provided a friendly welcome, our room was lovely, the location was perfect as it was within walking distance of the central square, and the prices were very reasonable, especially compared to other B&Bs in...

We loved this B&B. We stayed in the Santia Room, upstairs, which was very large and traditionally decorated. It was a little hard to find initially but once we did, it was the perfect location in the center of Taos. Breakfast was excellent......we still think about those delicious strawberry waffles!

What a great find. The house is just fascinating, everyone very friendly and helpful. We had a beautiful little apartment at the top of the house up two steep narrow staircases. It has small sitting area, microwave, coffee maker, shower room, bedroom and a balcony big enough to sit out on. All beautifully furnished with little homely touches. Breakfast is... More
