We only planned on staying here for one night, then moving on to Santa Fe. We loved our room & experience so much we stayed another night. So happy we did! The room was absolutely perfect! Great wood burning fireplace, Spanish tiled bathroom & High Desert decor. The breakfast was sensational! Best granola ever. We even bought a pound to... More

One of our principles of travel is that we prefer a location that offers us the ability to walk to/from in the evenings after we have had an "adult beverage' or two. Getting behind the wheel of a vehicle is not only irresponsible but unnecessary during the evening hours! Casa Benavides is located a long block from the main plaza... More

We enjoyed everything about Casa Benevides. Our large, clean and comfortable room had high beamed ceilings creating a lovely ambiance. There’s no internet service in the guest rooms, but the becoming lobby with local artwork and resources is an enjoyable spot to hang out. Our room had a nice patio with comfortable seating to enjoy the sunny weather in Taos.... More

We arrived late Sunday evening and although we had no reservations they went out of their way to come in and not only give us keys to out room but information on where to have dinner as well as hot tea to take back to our room. Great location just downtown yet quit an tranquil. Breakfast was great. Would defiantly... More

Great location right in downtown Taos. Really nice place, old adobe charm but on a big scale. Tall ceilings, large rooms, so comfortable but not cozy. Our favorite part was the breakfast. Stunning room, staff bustling about bringing you anything you could imagine: homemade muffins and cakes, Mexican baked eggs, fresh peaches, and the best homemade granola we'd ever had.... More

I'm sitting in the lobby of this wonderful B&B and I am overwhelmed by the charm, character and superb service of this unassuming place. Keeping up perfectly with this town's style, this B&B makes you feel you are staying in a wonderful grand house, with a beautiful enviable charming kitchen, perfectly appointed dining room, warm living room and cozy bedroom....

We just spent one night at Benavides in Taos. The two of us found the cookies and sweets irresistible at the afternoon tea, again proving New Mexico a bane for eating light, let alone dieting. Then, the breakfast with the New Mexican fritatta and homestyle chili, plus homemade granola with yogurt and local peaches put the emphasis on the Breakfast... More

If you are tired of impersonal hotels, this charming and historic spot is for you. Price is slightly higher than banal local hotels but worth it. Barbara and Tom, the owners are part of Taos history and full of stories and hints about the area. Rooms are all different and appointed with attention to New Mexico's colours and architecture.

The Inn is absolutely lovely, and just a block off the main part of town. Our side street was quiet and a convenient one block walk to the restaurants. Our room was impeccably decorated, bright and lively. The room was small and cozy but we didn't go for one of the higher priced rooms. The food is amazing with a... More

Our group of 21 stayed for two nights at this great B&B. The rooms were great, (all different configurations), the art work and decor was outstanding, and the food (breakfast) was to die for!! The location of the inn was convenient to the Plaza, and art galleries. I would highly recommend this B&B.
