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

My husband and I stayed here for three nights, and we had a wonderful time! The B&B is right in the centre of town, the owner and the staff are warm and friendly, the rooms are cosy and cheerful, and the breakfasts are delicious. In addition, our bathroom had the best lighting (over the mirror) that I've ever seen! We've... More

We loved everything about La Doña Luz! From the perfect location, the quiet, the friendly staff, and the incredible artistic furnishings, there was no room for improvement. ...Not to mention the comfortable bed, the wood fire in the kiva, and the great breakfast! We just got home and are already looking forward to our next visit!
