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.

This historic inn is well cared for and is so convenient to the historic area of Taos. Just park your car and walk! We stayed two nights and our room with king size bed was so comfortable and quiet. We loved it here! But the breakfast is what everyone raves about, and rightly so. We have really enjoyed our stay!... More

The location is perfect; the staff was very friendly. Their breakfast is fabulous, plentiful, freshly prepared, delicious. Our room was fine and comfortable, tho we may have had a nightime mousy visitor, but could not be sure.

Charming, old Inn in the center of downtown Taos. Friendly welcoming staff. Rooms very simple. Bathroom had no hairdryer, a little outside soil on the floor. The bed mattress was on the softer side and only one bedroom pillow with one extra in the closet. Wifi supernatural. Awesome breakfast of granola, peaches, and yogurt. It was followed by Green chilli... More

The room was huge, well decorated and our only suggestion was that more lamps would have been nice. There was a quiet lovely courtyard to relax in and great for enjoying the free afternoon treats.

Our room, the St. Thomas, was huge and beautifully decorated. The lighting was very subdued. Even with every lamp turned on, it was difficult to read a book. The only window was facing the busy sidewalk/street, so it was impossible to keep it open without feeling that my bedroom was a store front. The hallway was very stuffy and hot,... More
