With so many good reviews and the historic designation, my sister and I were looking forward to our stay at the Taos Inn. Since we live in different cities, we try to meet once a year, usually in October. We love Santa Fe and Taos so much that we usually wind up there.
I booked a room with a fireplace. We love the kiva fireplaces and look forward to having one in our room. The room itself faced the courtyard, was beautifully decorated and indeed had a fireplace. Unfortunately we were told that the fireplaces didn't work til later in the season - disappointment #1. With no fireplace we expected the heating to work. It did not and we spent the cold October night with no heat - disappointment #2. Although it wasn't in the room description, I just assumed there would be a coffee maker in room - disappointment #3. I didn't even mention the nail sticking out of the wicker chair. We were moved to a different room and it did have a fireplace. Good move, although a little inconvenient to pack everything up. The shower had no basin, just flat bathroom floor. When we showered, the water flooded the entire floor. Did we use the shower incorrectly? Were there any warnings? We're both very short - did that have anything to do with the direction of the shower head? - disappointment #4.
Management tried to make everything right but it just wasn't what we expected.
We never did get to dine in the restaurant, and the window of opportunity to get a cup of coffee was too small to even enjoy that. - disappointment #5.
