After a wonderful drive thru northern NM, arrived in Taos late. The only motel not sold out was the Whitten. We paid $80 for a small, dirty (not filthy) room. We were so tired we slept until 10 and we were the only car in the parking lot. I guess everyone else was in a hurry to leave. It's an... More

Found trash in the floor no soap or coffee went to pull the covers back to put my kids to bed and there's a syringe in the blanket! Told manager/owner and they would not do anything about it! That is wrong! Paid 80$ a night to for a dirty drug room! Do not stay here!

My family and I have been coming to Taos for some years now as it is a near-by vacation hot spot, especially in the winter. The Whitten Inn did not disappoint! We've been to this hotel and the over-flux of people during the winter season is usually a huge hassle for this town specifically, as no one wants to work... More

David, the new owner of the Whitten Inn has provided great customer service and value for a nice hotel in Taos. The rooms are spacious and clean. There is a free continental breakfast that I like to stock up on before heading to the mountain to ride. There's a very large indoor heated pool and hot tub. With all the... More

The Whitten Inn is in serious need of updating. Carpet & furniture are thrift shop quality, the plumbing in the room was slow and the tub wouldn't drain at all. Positives are the budget price, friendly front desk, free breakfast and the 10-15 min walk to the old town. I have stayed here on prior visits to Taos, so my... More

The carpets were stained, and no coffee for the coffee maker. I woke up and was bitten by some kind of bug, it wasn't a spider. It was bad, particularly my face. My eye was almost swollen shut for 2 days, also bit on my arms, chest, elbows and hand. The front desk clerk said he would spray the mattress.... More
