We booked here due to the special rates offered during a local hockey tournament. Things were not good from the beginning: although we reserved two suites, only one was available; all three rooms were upstairs and spread out in three different buildings, although all were booked at the same time; the desk clerks seemed indifferent to these issues at check...

Enjoyed our stay. Room was nice, and the bed was very comfortable. Good location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We met the owner while walking through the lobby, and she she was very personable. The pool was larger than we expected. Free full hot breakfast with real scrambled eggs-not the watery fake eggs you get at some hotels. We... More

When we arrived, we were told we did not have those and they weren't available now. We were going to be close, but not next to each other like we planned. Upon entering our... More

Visited in early November and stayed at Hotel Don Fernando de Taos. Management was excellent and very helpful with assisting us on booking a room at our next stop. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you very much.

After reading several negative reviews, I was leery of booking a stay at Hotel Don Fernando. With two parents and four teenagers in our party, and a planned stay of three nights, we needed adequate space with an affordable price. I contacted the hotel, and Joshua, the Manager, responded quickly with a suggestion that we book a suite featuring a... More

Had issues with the first room I checked into but was assisted by a lovely and caring front desk person named Melissa. Not only did she get me a excellent room but she accommodated my entire stay. Over all Hotel Don Fernando knows how to treat there guests right!

We arrived to Don Fernando a lot earlier than the scheduled check-in time. We were welcomed regardless by the nice manager, Josh. My boyfriend and I had a lot of misfortunes before we arrived and Josh was sure to leave his card in case we needed anything. We were happy with the staff and accomodations.

We were so pleasantly surprised when we stopped here. We wanted to stay in an affordable place where the atmosphere wasn't so sterile. We had stayed at the Super 8 on our previous trip, but wanted something with more personality. Hotel Don Fernando was priced so reasonably that we thought there had to be a catch. While we were inquiring... More
