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.

Colorful rooms, ours was the Madonna room, allow for a funky fun , comfortable stay in Taos. Large bedroom with fireplce, 2 queen brass beds, big screen tv and a sizable sitting room with an outdoors deck. Friendly helpful host, great breakfast with homemade waffles, melon, yogurt in a dining room downstairs. Only drawback is stairs are narrow winding staircase... More

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
