We love to stay at this beautiful historic inn. Staff is friendly, it's a relaxed atmosphere and so close to central Taos that we walk everywhere. The breakfast, prepared fresh every morning, is served in a beautiful, sunny room which overlooks the courtyard. Every afternoon there are fresh cakes and cookies warm out of the oven that we enjoy on...

Casa Benavides was an awesome place to stay. We had two young children and everything was very welcoming and nice. The morning breakfast was as good as it gets. Afternoon snacks of drinks and sweets were delicious as well. I definitely will stay there again. ❤

Spent 3 nights in OAXACA over Spring Break. This room has a King bed and a day bed with an optional trundle bed underneath. It is located about a block from The Plaza, which has tons of restaurants and shopping. We felt safe at this location. Everyone at the Inn was very friendly (they let us check in 3 hours...

Our room, Taos Pueblo, was fine although a tad dark. But, it was on a lovely, quiet courtyard and steps from the main building. The breakfast was delicious. We were offered yogurt, granola, muffins, juice and coffee. Then, we had a choice of waffles, french toast or a quiche/egg dish with tortillas. Wonderful. We did not partake of the afternoon...

We've stayed at the Casa Benavides several times, and we've always been delighted with it. Though we had reserved a room with a queen size bed, they had a king-sized room available and gave us that without us even having to ask. It was a lovely, quiet room, extremely spacious. We spend the whole afternoon (after wandering around town all...

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Benavides and would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Taos. We had reserved Jemez and after discovering a hot water issue we were immediately upgraded to Casa Mesa which was a great room. The breakfast was really tasty they provided assorted muffins, yogurt, granola mix, and then your choice...

Great rates and nice rooms for the money. Easy walking distance to the plaza and restaurants. Great breakfast included in a wonderful dining room. The lobby is great, but I really enjoyed my room. The staff are great and this is my place to stay in Taos.

Very nice hotel about a 1 minute walk to the Plaza. Lots of shops to explore and everyone is very friendly. The hotel check-in and check-out is as easy as could be.

I stopped in for a few minutes to ask some questions about lodging. I've passed this place many times. I never realized it was so beautiful on the inside. It seems like a great place also to have some sort of event. The dining room was gorgeous. Wow.

Not cookie cutter-modern chain facility. That's a huge compliment. Very good rooms, with modern amenities, if not the latest. Great Wi-Fi, , super clean rooms. The staff is superb, they're attentive, responsive and really care about the owner(s) and the reputation of the Casa. Breakfast is personal and expansive, and yes ---included. Location could not be better.
