I checked out of my original hotel expecting to drive back to Albuquerque. Due to a project delay , I return to town to find all the hotels were booked up.as a last minute ditch I did a search and made a reservation at a hotel that was reasonably priced. My room was extremely filthy and the place is severely... More

Okay, the rate for El Camino was a bit lower. The savings was not worth the trouble. There was a common theme at this hotel, 'we are trying to save a buck....at all cost.' First the overall look of the hotel is run down. It is clearly understaffed, on several occasions I found the front desk unmanned. This is a... More

Reasonably priced for Taos, a little way from the action but it is walkable to town if you fancy a drink at night. Big room with all mod cons. Half decent continental breakfast: friendly Mexican staff who make you feel welcome. Recommended for a weekend.

Rooms are filthy, many of the clientele suspect. Service is terrible. On top of everything else an electronic device was left there and we still cannot get the Manager to return it after 3 weeks despite repeated calls. Expedia was also no help with this issue. Avoid this place like the plague.

I picked this place for it's location to downtown and even read the reviews, but I was totally taken by surprise. The first "non-smoking room we checked into, totally wreaked from cigarette smoke and pet odors. They were nice enough to change our room when I called the desk. I made my way to the reception area, but had to... More

Booking.com overbooked the place but that wasn't the worst part. The housekeeping staff supposedly didn't show up for work and so the rooms were not ready at 3:00 pm when checking began. It took 2 hrs to check in with a long line because we were not allowed to check in before 3. There was ONE person running the front... More

Of our many destinations on a 20 day trip so far, this was a good, clean, comfortable room at a good price. Nothing special, but when you're on the road for an extended period of time, costs add up quickly and this was a good find! The location is fine relative to everything in town.......

the bosses here are horrible they treat their workers very bad and the they give you nasty looking old used towels and bed sheets that looks like they've been used for years. the way they treat their housekeepers is very unfair

I concur with other reviews. After seeing the room we left and went to a different hotel despite having reservations. Room was dirty and heavy smoke smell; also there many people hanging outside drinking. We had young children with us on family vacation.
