Yes, it's close to the Plaza, but that is all it has going for it. Nice people at the front desk doesn't make up for the lack of services, cleanliness, basics. After noticing that I didn't have a remote for the TV in my room, the staff proceeded to move me to another room. That remote didn't work either, so,... More

Thanks you for writing a review. Sorry we failed to provide an appropriate room. The lack of completeness and cleanliness of your room is unacceptable. We've just changed part of our housekeeping team and improved the leadership part to provide what most Guests expect, clean, complete, accommodations. Clearly, we took too long to make housekeeping changes. Hope you'll consider giving... More

I always stay here when going through Taos. I stay because of the price and location it isn't for people that want things perfect. For those people. Go pay 150 per night. I just want a affordable place close to town and the Indian Hills is That. I have been staying for over 20 years through many changes in management.... More

Thanks for your business over 20 years! Our convenient downtown central historic business district location is probably the number one reason people choose us. We've tried to provide an affordable Taos lodging rate and will continue to make that effort. Yes, we've made numerous manager changes over the years, this most recent change is one of the best and believe... More

Stayed here for one night when passing through. This motel is located conveniently in the center of Taos. Restaurants and galleries are within walking distance. The place has seen better times, but offers good value rooms compared to the price level in Taos. I liked the style and the lobby, but some refurbishment would help a lot.There was a continental...

The main entrance looked ok for a two star motel... however when we pulled around the back for parking it looked a bit sketchy... very dark. The room is as expected but everything was there and functioning! It was quiet and we ended finding a good value for the location.

Rooms were disgusting. Stains going down the walls, on the sheets and the carpet. Room had an awful smell. You can here everything in the rooms around you. There are no closets. Just an armoire that is missing the handles. The TV was an old tube tv.

Thanks for your business over the years! We too are disappointed that we did not provide the service you deserve and expected. None of the front desk staff recalls (or admits) any complaints or questions similar to your post. Since TP is easily available across the street, we'll look into your questions and make certain it won't happen again. If... More

In my first room the TV did not work, so I was moved to a second room. The deadbolt did not work in the second room. The hot water was lukewarm in the shower, curtains didn't close, holes in the sheets, no outside lighting (it was really dark while unloading), wifi worked some of the time, the phone did not...

There are good things to say about Indian Hills Inn--great location close to the Plaza, rooms were clean, seemed to be recently decorated, nice courtyard, takes pets, very helpful staff. Not so good--parking in the rear seemed unsafe especially off season with relatively few customers, and no amenities. I didn't expect shampoo for what I paid, but not even a... More

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. The most common reason select Indizn Hills Inn, Taos Plaza is location which as you said is about as good as it gets. Other oft meantioned Guest comments are similar to your observations, a friendly "tour guide" like front desk team and a great value. Thanks for your business and comments!... More

Checked in, got to my room and it did not have a memory-foam mattress topper as described online and in my reservation. They moved me to a second room that was not clean. Both rooms were non-smoking, but smelled like smoke. Both rooms were very cold upon arrival (no heat turned on). Both rooms had gas flame units that were... More

I was looking for a budget hotel in Taos. I heard Indian Hills was decent. The desk person was very helpful when I made my reservations by phone. The room I was given had a carpet full of clumps of dog hair. It had not been vacuumed. The bedspread was so filthy I removed it. There was no soap. I... More
