“Go to for cocktails and nachos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

This is our go-to for margaritas and nachos for happy hour. The Margarita selection is extensive, has something for everyone and the food is pretty good for bar food. The decor is historic and there is typically a live band playing every night. This is a must for Taos. It is centrally located and a great place to meet people. Only drawback is the service can be pretty slow depending on your server. Also, double-check your tab if you go during happy hour (sometimes the staff forgets about it, nothing malicious on their part). This is a pretty good place for tourists and locals alike and pretty much sums up the Taos atmosphere in my opinion. Never stayed in the rooms but I hear they are pretty nice.

A week in New Mexico ended with the most romantic interlude in the snow in Taos at the Historic Taos Inn - Room 203 - ask specifically for it!! Duck to get in the old door and be enveloped in history. The pueblo fireplace, the thick adobe walls, your very own courtyard with fountain, flowers and sheer beauty everywhere. The staff was most kind, the accomodations just wonderful and the dinner at Doc Martins (just a few steps away) made for a perfect ending to a vacation.

Room Tip: Rooms 201/202 & 203 each have their own courtyard, fireplace and are VERY OLD - Historic, get it...

We ended up at the Taos Inn by accident. We had booked and paid to stay at the La Fionda, but the excellent Expedia (NOT) had decided we really didn’t want to stay there and so instead booked us into the Taos Inn but neglected to highlight this. For once Expedia didn’t make a total mess and the Taos Inn was excellent. Stayed here for just one night, but wish it had been longer. Rooms were excellent; very clean and quiet. Setting was excellent too and the staff were very helpful too. The Inn is located close to the main plaza and an ideal base for a day in Taos. Music in the main Inn most night and the breakfast was delicious!

I have stayed at the HTI several times and never been disappointed. You get the room you pay for, so if you want top luxury, pay for it. Bargin rooms are quaint and functional which is fine for me. The best part is the location, location location and the food/drink. I consider Doc Martin's and the hotel bar the best place for food and drink in town. Plus, you can quickly walk to all the highlights of the Taos plaza and shopping. Parking was private and close to my room. Staff is courteous and helpful and overall the hotel is remarkably unique.

Room Tip: Ask if you will be in the main building or in the courtyards (detached) out back. Make sure you pick...

We had a lovely dinner and then drinks and desert in the bar. It was 'open mike' night with several local talents featured. It was a lot of fun. Some of the acts were better than others but it was interesting just to see the diversity of talent. Who knows? We might have been watching the next big name in music? The food was great, margaritas were great & I'd love to go back. Maybe next time we can stay in the Inn.

If you are looking for a unique place to stay in Northern New Mexico that is located in the center of town near the square, and is the social hub for this Pueblo art area, then the historic Taos Inn is the place to stay. The main building includes the reception area, Doc Martin's restaurant, and the Adobe Bar. The high ceiling lobby serves as the nightly musical venue featuring a variety of musical performers from 7-10 p.m. This is a place meet local artisans, musicians, and fellow travelers who appreciate a gem from the past that provides comfortable lodging.

In addition to the rooms located in the main building, there are ground level rooms located in three courtyards for those who prefer to be some distance away from the music/bar scene.

Room Tip: If you are looking to observe/participate in the social activities in the lobby area, there are room...
