A wonderful place to stay if you are seeking a clean, warm, cozy hideaway! Paco and his staff are about the nicest hosts in Taos! This was not my first time here - it will always be MY PLACE to visit - over and over again. Thank you again for your wonderful homemade and fresh breakfasts each morning, the lovely... More

It would be hard to overstate the warm charms of La Dona Luz Inn, which made us feel right at home on our first stay in Taos. Paco's roots are right here and are fascinating, and the artistic expressions of this host make each of the rooms in his family's historic homestead are filled with fine taste and hand-accented charm....

The B&B is absolutely gorgeous and service provided was outstanding! I highly recommend staying here! We actually stayed an extra night just to experience more of the Inn itself. Here are some photos of the kitchen which was painted by hand by Paco's (the owner) mother. The place is a spiritual retreat!

La Dona Luz is a wonderfully sweet, colorful and quiet Inn less than a block from the Taos Plaza. The interior has thick old beams, artwork on all the walls, there is color every where! The cupboards in the kitchen (which you will have access to) has brightly painted fronts with tile along the walls. The little dining area looks... More

Loved, loved, loved this place! So comfortable and welcoming. We stayed in the La Madonna room. It was incredible, especially the deck area where we drank wine and watched the stars. Breakfast time was special...Khondru is the most amazing hostess! And the Spanish tortilla, delicious. And we couldn't ask for a better location. It's private, yet within walking distance from...

We arrived at 9:15 pm and was greeted with a warm smile from Carie. She was very friendly and gave us great recommendations on what to do and where to go. The next morning Khondru had a wonderful breakfast ready for us and was very accommodating with our special requests.

So welcoming and comfortable. We felt at home the second we walked in the door. This B & B is so full of color, texture, and surprise. The rooms are accessed by spiral staircases and not all of the rooms are in the same building so finding your way around is a fun adventure. We stayed in the Rainbow Room... More

Local art throughout the eclectic spaces. Clean, charming - modern bathrooms. Climb the stairs to the top rooms for a view of the town. Have breakfast in lovely courtyard patio. Lots to do, see and eat in walking distance.

Owner Paco Martinez has clearly invested heart and energy in designing and furnishing this delightful B and B. From the hand-carved cabinetry to the original paintings and prints the rooms and public spaces have a near-museum ambience - though not as formal. Mr. Martinez generously showed us around the whole inn, whetting our appetite for a next visit. He and... More

We have come back many times over the past 20 years. We have enjoyed a number of rooms, all with individual personality, each with its own story, each a museum unto itself. We have recommended La Dona Luz to friends and they were so happy with our advice. No place is so singularly wonderful as this B&B. I really could... More
