My husband, daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights over spring break. We loved how close it was to the ski area - just walk across the parking lot! The room was definitely "no frills" - 2 double beds, a small table, dresser, refrigerator, microwave and coffee pot. No decorations, no TV and no internet, so we brought games... More

We're experienced skiers and usually stay at pretty pricey joints--however we've always wanted to check this spot out for our kids and grandkids-and we're glad we did! We stayed in the hotel--large basic room with 2 queen-sized beds. If you'd rather, there are cabins, apartments, suites--lots of choices. We brought our own coffee pot and full ice chest, and lots...

Sipapu's lodging may not be for everyone. But it is a joy to find a reasonable, clean place near taos. My brother is a frisbie golf enthusiast. this is the place to stay..there are several courses nearby and one right on the grounds. gorgeous stream and mountains. trails everywhere, pets welcome. five of us stayed in one of the 2...

This was a GREAT Value! We stayed in room 302 on the 3rd floor of the main lodge. Understand you get what you pay for! It is very basic lodging! Almost like taking trip back to 1950... No TV, no Internet, no phones and limited cell service. The rental shop had a good variety to choose from, but you can't... More

This could have been a great trip but ruined by several school bus load of kids. Took us over two hours to get lift tickets, and ski rental gear. Had to stand in line with very active kids. Finally got to the slopes, again, had to dodge the kids on slopes, pick up the kids (trash on the slopes) endured... More

We have returned 3 times since our original review in 2013. And each time was a little different, and each time has allowed me to appreciate this place more. Late 2013 season: One time we went there was a snow castle built and people wore costumes and blew horns as they skied down the mountain side. It was an atmosphere... More

The mountain and grounds are beautiful. The skiing is good. The lift tickets and rental rates are reasonable. The lodging is ABYSMAL. We paid $150 to stay in a motel room on New Year's Day ($119 + $20 for our dog + taxes). The room was totally bare bones, remniscent of a college dorm room circa 1972. It had two... More

I have visited the resort at least 8 times over the years and the last visit was in May,2013. I love your place because of reduced area in summer time as well as the rustic qualities of being in the woods. Also your staff are friendly and helpful. I went to the river nearby and was able to catch trout... More

We were here the week before thanksgiving. We did not stay on the property, but found a great house to rent 15 miles or so away. The lift tickets were very affordable, and we intended to ski for two days. A snow storm put us there too late for morning lessons, but that turned out to save us a ton... More
