We came came to Taos for a night. The rooms stink of smoke and are musty. You can see the filth. The carpet is full of stains, the bathroom floor was disgusting. The bed was very hard and looked dirty. The bathroom smelled really bad like urine. Ive used portable bathrooms that were cleaner. The price for the room was... More

After traveling for 10-12 hrs, we were exhausted & ready for our Hotwire hot rate hotel Deal! Not a deal...a dud! First, we couldn't find it because the ownership has changed and the name is now El Camino lodge. When we arrived there were several sketchy people congregating in the parking lot and it appears that part of the hotel... More

Don't stop here what ever you do! This place has recently changed ownership and is no longer called Whitten Inn. First off, when we got our key at check in there were people still in the room. In fact, they in bed...ahem...coitus interuptus... Then they gave us another room in the back. This room was surounded by transients partying in... More

We booked this motel through Hotwire and found that it was totally misrepresented. Hotwire currently shows the motel having an 84% satisfaction rating. There is no way this is accurate. When we checked in the guy at the registration desk was not your typical desk clerk. I’ll just leave it at that. The people hanging around the front desk looked... More

My family and I stayed here and while looking online at the pictures I thought it was reasonable and fairly nice. We arrived and while checking out the pool find tampons around the pool area with wet toilet paper. In addition to that they gave us a key to a room that was already occupied and we walked in to...

Checked into room #1 on the 1st floor. It had been trashed out by a previous party. We were then assigned a different room. Room #2 was not clean. We demanded our money back & immediately left. Obviously, this place does not have any accountability in the house keeping dept. or in their management. Best advise- do not go here.

The first thing we noticed was the abundance of shady characters hanging around. The peep hole is covered so you can't use it. The ceiling in the bathroom is brown from leaks. The hot water nozzle in the shower whistled the entire time. The complimentary shampoo is a dial soap hand dispenser attached to the shower wall. The jetted tub... More

Well they claimed to have WIFI which I have had better with my old dial up. if it was up the PING was over 500 and it had a 0.2 m download and upload wouldn't log in. The pool was nice and the hot tub was hot but the floaty things made me worry.

I'm not usually one to write reviews, but need to record these comments. We decided late in the day to stay in Taos on our family vacation. It was a busy weekend in town, so hotel rooms were apparently hard to come by. The sign in front advertising a need for housekeeping help should have been a clue. We were... More

Bugs in the room. Toilet leaked, room dirty. Management let a big party in the parking lot get out of hand, the police had to be called to break it up after 10:30 PM. The wifi was almost non existent. Absolutely disgusted with the place.
