We take many trips to Taos each year and we like to try different places to stay when we can. Here is why I give Casa Benavides just an average rating. Good: * Location, Location, Location. Really tough to argue this one. The location on Kit Carson road is about a block from the square as well as Kit Carson... More

This is a wonderful, reasonably priced B&B near the center of town. The rooms are spacious and decorated thematically. Nice grounds, porches and common areas. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is great. We will stay here again!

Positives: Very large well decorated bedrooms and huge bathrooms. A lovely dining room with a good selection of healthy food for breakfast. Parking available. Only a 5 minute walk to the main plaza. Negatives: Wi-fi is only available in the main reception area, which is locked at night. Entrance is through a side-street, and there was a definite feeling of... More

Casa Benavides has amazing communal spaces - the outdoor patios, the breakfast area, the lounge and the kitchen are just beautiful spaces and really tastefully decorated. The rooms themselves are great - comfortable beds and spacious bathrooms. I also can't say enough about the breakfast - super filling and delicious. They have a cold breakfast and a hot breakfast that... More

This was our first visit to both Taos and Casa Benavides, and it certainly won't be our last! Casa Benavides is located within the central historic district, and is within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. Our room was in the restored Victorian house, and was really spacious, lovely and very well appointed. The bed was fabulous, and one... More

Casa Benavides is conveniently located just a block from the main plaza in Taos. There is enough free parking all around the hotel. Breakfast was included in our rate and the food and service was very good. Our guest room was comfortable, but the bathroom was a bit small for a couple. We've become accustom to more counter top space... More

As part of a big road trip for 4 Brits, we wanted to see some smaller towns and taos fit the bill! Casa benavides was chosen based on price and location, very close to the square and galleries but cheaper than staying in the square. The 2rooms we had were both amazing, ours had a full kitchen and gorgeous living... More

It is just a short walk to the central area of Taos. The rooms are spacious, clean, well appointed and comfortable. There are New Mexico style rooms and "Victorian" rooms. Suit your taste. The main building has interesting art and is beautifully furnished. The breakfast is substantial and delicious. The afternoon "tea" is a cake, pastry and cookie-holics paradise. You... More

lovely place to stay in Taos. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Delicious breakfast and beautiful kitchen. They said they didn't accept discounts and special offers, though clearly they have one on this site. Attempted to check in Taos, though Internet connection on the phone wasn't working.

We wanted a nice and clean place to stay close to the square in Taos so we could walk down every day. This is the spot. The room was clean and reflected the history of Taos in the fireplace, ceiling and flooring. The skylight over the bed (Jemez Room) woke us early, but that was fine for use. Breakfast was... More
