I have traveled all over the world and stayed everywhere from youth hostels, to B&Bs, apartments, houses, motels and all types of hotels. I don't expect perfection. I do expect a property to be honestly represented, and I really was shocked at the room condition at the La Dona Luz Inn. I will post pictures of the Sonrisa room, and... More

This B&B is located literally in the heart of Taos, just one block from the main square. I prefer to breakdown the different aspects of the visit so here they are: Location - Being smack in the middle of town has benefits and drawbacks. It is quite easy to get out and walk around. There are a number of shops... More

This place was such a great surprise. It was a bit hard to track down as it is set a little back from the curb, but once you find it and open the door you are in for a treat. The door was locked when we arrived, but Paco told us to park around back and use the other door.... More

What a find...right in the heart of one of our favorite places on the planet... downtown Taos...situated right across from the plaza, and a short stroll to great food, microbrews and live entertainment. We usually choose to stay in The Santiago room, and love the ambiance, the coziness, the comfort, the food, and the people. Paco runs a great B&B,... More

We stayed 2 nites in the Rainbow Room..2 story with hot tub on roof! Location to square and restaurants was perfect. Paco the owner was very accommodating and helpful thru the whole booking and staying process. Very quaint B&B, authentic to Taos. Breakfast was also wonderful!

One of the most unique places to stay anywhere.. Dripping with history and Taos culture. Paco, the owner, is constantly working to create an unforgettable lodging experience. Super clean and quiet. Our favorite Taos getaway!

Right in the heart of downtown Taos. Across from the plaza. We chose to stay in The Santiago room, and loved the ambiance, the coziness, the comfort, the food, and the people. Paco runs a great B&B, and we were fortunate to meet his father Carlos, who was visiting his son and grandsons. Condrieu took marvelous care of us for... More

We came back here after a long hiatus, having stayed with our boys here 9 years ago, and the place is delightfully frozen in time [in a good sort of way]. Owner Paco is a great host, and our favorite room, La Madonna, accessed by external spiral staircase, is one of the great rooms of all our travels over the... More

We absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful Bed & Breakfast. Paco and his father, Carlos, really make the stay even better. Their kindness, personality and understanding of the local history is just incredible. We came to New Mexico on our honeymoon and this has been our favorite place we've stayed. The location is very colorful and artistic and the... More

Paco provides a unique artifact and art emmersed stay in a special place, Taos. This B&B, just off the square, is located centrally and perfectly. Special needs all met by staff. Breakfast was energetically provided by a new staff addition. Waffles, yogurt, granola, toast, cream cheese and jelly/jam; Breakfast pastry and egg tortilla, juice, coffee and tea.
