Charming Taos style Casa. Our room was large and beautiful. Huge comfortable bed. The best part was the breakfast that is included. Absolutely the best breakfast I have ever had! This place is downtown and well within walking distance of the plaza. Highly recommended.

We had 1 room that was well decorated and very comfortable. Felt cozy and was close to town. Loved the turquoise paint and Adobe style architecture. Staff very nice and friendly. Breakfast was a good bonus. Room decorated with local style and well lit. Delicious granola!

We love the various room decors; and, although we have our preferences, we are never disappointed each time we choose a different one. Breakfast is a wonderful experience with first rate service, choice of entree, and wonderful muffins and coffee. Everything is homemade, and be sure to take the opportunity to return for tea and pastries every afternoon. You are... More

We stayed for one night in Casa Benavides after a rafting trip down the Taos Gorge, and I can tell you one night is NOT enough. What a beautiful respite in the historic little town of Taos, walking distance to the plaza and all the great shops, museums, galleries, etc. The property is stunning and oozes southwestern charm and spirit....

Large comfortable room, great location near the square, well appointed rooms and great breakfast. Each room is different so go on line and view the rooms before you book. We were in the St. Thomas room. It faces Kit Carson road but did not notice any noise from traffic. We did find the room was a bit dark and sure... More

Nice location, ok facility and room, but overall the staff was neither welcoming or attentive. The dining room is colorful, but the tea/cookies and breakfast were average. I may be spoiled from my recent experiences at wonderful B&Bs, but I did not like the vibe at Casa Benavides and would not stay here again.

Wonderful afternoon homemade snacks, fantastic breakfast in the morning. Each room is individual, the property is attentively decorated. Very centrally located. Easy to find. Love it! Ask to see a floor plan to pick your room. The Georgia OKeefe room has two bedrooms that share a bath. It is a good value for friends traveling together.

We had a lovely stay at Casa Benavides. Charming! Afternoon tea with home baked goods was an absolute delight. The grounds are beautiful and breakfast in the stunningly colorful dining room was amazing. I can't wait to return one day

This is a lovely Inn with private adobe suites. We were surprised with an afternoon tea including delicious homemade sweets. The buildings are a work of art in themselves, with several private patios on the property. Breakfast was included and started with fresh yogurt and homemade toppings. I chose the egg skillet meal with green chile sauce, which was wonderful... More

We had only booked to stay at this hotel for one night, but wished we had stayed longer. This place truly has a personal touch! Beautiful dining area and lounge with every beautiful object carefully placed. We had a large room on a little terraced row, separate from the main building. It was so spacious with steps going up to... More
