The ONLY place we stay in Taos. Beautiful, "Earthereal", variety of room options for every family: studios with kitchen, 1 & 2 bedrooms. We've stayed in several different rooms. Each unique, fireplaces in every suite [I think], and several hot tubs on the premises. The McCarthy's have long family roots in Taos. They are wonderful hosts and hands-on running the... More

When you get Comfortable beds, a great location, plus a gracious, helpful staff what more could you want? Maybe a lovely hot breakfast and mid afternoon treats served in a beautifully decorated dining room? Well you have all that here. Loved Taos and this place.

My Wife and I stayed at Casa Benevidez last weekend and it was perfect! Our room was very nice and had its own Kiva style wood burning fireplace. The staff was extremely friendly, and the breakfast options were more than sufficient. They have a hot tub on premise, which is great in the cold weather. The only reason I didn't... More

This was our second stay at Casa Bienavides and it remains high on our list of favorites. I think most of the B and Bs in Taos are overpriced but Casa Bienavides is a top notch inn where it is clear the owners are cognizant of what hospitality is all about. The breafast is truly remarkable as are the staff--very... More

After searching through hundreds of reviews trying to find a decent place to stay in Taos, I found a "Gem"! The room was decorated with the famous Georgia O'Keeffe prints and skull. I believe each room is custom decorated to fit the southwest style. The inn was in a perfect location to walk to galleries and restaurants. The absolute best... More

We returned after 15 years and found a much improved facility that will be our preferred place to stay ofnour annual visits to Taos. Old and quirky to be sure but with charm and congenial staff to make it entirely enjoyable. And very good breakfasts, too.

For various reasons, we generally avoid bed and breakfast places while traveling, but I'm glad we made this exception. In a charming and historic town, this has to be one of the most charming and historic of inns. Beautiful decor...hard to take it all in, actually, as the place is almost an art museum itself. Since it's located in the... More

Every chance I get to visit Taos, I like to stay here. I have stayed here for years and enjoy it every time. The hospitality is unrivaled, and the rooms are comfy and warm. Beds you sink into and lots of covers on those cold days! If you are still cold, fire up the kiva fireplace in your room with... More

We were delightfully surprised with the comfortable clean rooms. Our room had a small kitchenette, no dinnerware or cooking ware. The room also had access to a semi-private courtyard. Afternoon tea and treats were awesome. The breakfast was served family style. The staff were like family, food was excellent. Within easy walking of all Taos shopping and sites.

This would have to be one of the best places to stay in Taos, for service and comfort, the breakfast is amazing and the afternoon tea such a delight, it is central to everything, we loved it here! It is extremely central to the town centre, there are restaurants everywhere within walking distance, the car parking was great private parking... More
