We found this inn on the Internet. This inn was was a wonderful two days of visiting relatives we hadn't met yet. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The decor was kitschy and fun. We felt welcomed by our two legged hosts and our four legged host. Breakfast was amazing. I'd go back just to eat breakfast there.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2016 via mobile

We found Inn on the Rio on the Internet. It looked like the kind of place we like to stay, but it turned out to be quite a find! The rooms aren't large but are very comfortable, and decorated with a basic southwest theme. The truly great thing about the Inn are the owners Jules and Robert. The are friendly,... More

I travel and stay in hotels frequently, so while on vacation am always looking for a B/B or alternative. I also have stayed in enough places to take one or two problems with a grain of salt. When planning, we depend on the reviews of others so I feel obligated to write my comments. First - if you love dogs,... More

The inn is located about a mile from Taos' downtown, near private museums and the first ever 'spaceship' house. It's owners were able to provide great restaurant recommendations and honest feedback on local attractions; even making reservations for us at popular sites. The beautiful gardens, hand-painted Southwestern touches, delicious breakfast, and lovely hot tub under the stars make the stay... More

Friendly owners and special mascot, Stormy made my stay very comfortable. Outdoor pool and spa were just what I needed. Hot, delicious breakfast and good company to share it with. Look forward to returning in the future.

What a wonderful relaxing inn! A friendly couple and their deputy, Stormy manage this delightful Inn away from the noise and traffic. The grounds are beautiful and a refreshing dip in the hot tub looking out at the hummingbirds and flowers will melt your cares away. The thoughtful owners remind me of the hospitality found in one of the better... More

It has been a couple of years since staying at the Inn and just completed 7 nights with Innkeepers Jules and Robert and of course, Stormy, the Inn's most amazing mascot! The consistency is still there and always feel that I am "home" in Taos. New items for breakfast, which is still hot and delicious with healthy alternatives, if you... More

Inn on the Rio is a quaint little homey place that perfectly fits the mood most visitors to Taos look for. The rooms are filled decor and the pine post beds have very nice mattresses for a perfect nights sleep. With the cool mountain breeze, we didn't even miss the a/c- and we were there in July. Above and beyond... More

Absolutely love this inn.... Jules, Robert and Stormy and the Inn on the Rio make you feel like part of the family. Came for holiday weekend with my brother . We roamed the town, took in the sights and marveled at the surrounding beauty. Drove up to the Vietnam Memorial .... Breathtaking and sad at the same time. Made new... More

I forgot about the free breakfast because I was already satisfied with the amount that I paid! Owners Jules & Robert are throwbacks to a bygone era when people cared about others genuinely! The pool is the type of pool that you can swim laps in. There are two huge birch trees there that would be prominent subjects in a... More
