This is a smallish B&B centrally located across from the Kit Carson Museum and a block from the central square. The owner is extremely helpful and pleasant. The decor, however, is the true attraction. The rooms and kitchen/dining area are beautifully painted with bright,colorful scenes which obviously have a Mexican influenced style. Go to their website to get a true... More

Don't be scared off by rear door entrance. Once inside there is a great southwest native look. The beds have Pendalton pillow covers, pictures of various western and native people on the walls. The breakfast is served by a kitchen employee. Great experience! George Fielding

We stayed only one night at La Dona, but vow to return again! Paco is a wonderful host, and we could have sat and just talked to him all day. The rooms are all so cute, Paco really thinks of ways to make them better (like lots of electrical outlets that are accessible), we stayed in the Angelitos room, which... More

Our host was a man of many talents and the inn has quite a long history and family with many artistic talents. The location is great and since you also get parking you are all set to view the downtown where parking is limited. Each room has a theme, well appointed and you will have a very satisfying breakfast. Please... More

The La Dona Luz has it all. Beautiful views, art in abundance and the funky eclectic style that beautiful Taos is defined by. The Madonna room is generous in size and full of Madonnas(of course!). The 2 queen beds are newer and have quality mattresses and waking up to the snow capped Taos mountain is pretty amazing. Microwave, fridge, 2... More

Our second visit to this lovely inn proved to be even more special than our first. We stayed in the Rainbow Room, the only one with the private hot tub on the roof. It was a perfect setting for a ski vacation. Inn is well situated for strolling about town. Paco is a special host and we enjoyed chatting with... More

On a recent trip to New Mexico, we made a last minute decision to stop in Taos at the "La Dona Luz". It was a busy Valentine's Day weekend, so the only room available was the penthouse suite -- and we are so glad! Ordinarily, we would have chosen a smaller room for just the two of us. However, this... More

My wife and I used to live in Taos so wasn't sure where to stay when we went back for a retirement party. On the off chance, we picked La Dona Luz Inn and we picked the room Los Angelitos. Great Inn, great room! The owner, Paco, was a wealth of knowledge and felt like friends immediately. Definitely ask him... More

We discovered this fantastic B&B 6 years ago and have not felt the need to look anywhere else in town. First, the location cannot be beat. Taos town square is a stones thrown from the front door. We stay in the Rainbow Room each year because it has its own private hot tub on the roof...this is the ONLY suite... More

The thing that really stands out about La Dona Luz is its amazing interior decoration. Each room has a different theme, as do the common rooms. (You'll particularly be amazed by the kitchen.) You could spend hours just looking at art and the other aspects of the decor. Other attributes are the location (about 1/2 block from the main square... More
