The Historic Taos Inn
Ranked #3 of 14 Hotels in Taos
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Overall this historic hotel has a lot to offer but our room in the main building left a lot to be desired. When traveling, we try to stay at historic properties so we appreciate "old." However, the furnishings were scuffed and tired looking, the A/C was loud and did not adequately cool the room. Nevertheless, it was clean and the bed was comfortable. Great lobby bar with adjacent outdoor patio AND they have nightly live music. Friendly and accommodating staff. Would stay again - just not in the main building.

We stayed here for one night so we could see a little of Taos and its famous mission and Pueblo. It was a family trip so we got a room that would accommodate four people. It was in the main building, just behind the lobby/bar area. The place was crowded with guests as well as people who were dropping by from the street for lunch and drinks. The outdoor seating area was almost full and it took a long time to order a couple of beers. We were never able to really enjoy a quiet drink at the bar as it was Friday night and they had live music and a crowded lobby and bar. I think one would be better off visiting on a weekday and getting a room not in the main building. The room was stuffy and noisy because of tis proximity to the lobby and the live music. The room was clean, the staff was friendly, and the restaurant was satisfactory. Would probably stay here again, but would request a room outside of the main building.

Room Tip: Don't stay in main building and stay during the week if you want some peace. Some of the rooms t...

Friendly staff and a pretty good (though expensive) restaurant with nice wine list did not make up for the disappointing room. Common areas were fine, appreciated the free coffee and outdoor space, but the room was downright depressing. Not "historic", just tired. Only the walk-in shower seemed fresh. Decor nondescript and did not appeal. Pillows and bedspread old - would not go back.

We've been to Taos countless times, but this was our first time staying at the Historic Taos Inn. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! It is the center of action, a social and cultural hub right in the heart of Taos. There is live music every night, the staff is very eclectic and friendly, and the food at the restaurant, Doc Martin's, was outstanding! It's centrally located to downtown and to the Taos Pueblo. The hotel is also very family friendly. We will definitely stay here again the next time we pass through Taos and highly recommended it to anyone headed that way!

Great central location for a Taos visit. Clean rooms and property with convenient, friendly bar. Comfortable beds. Live music. Located in the historic downtown area, many things to see within walking distance.

Room Tip: Rooms located in the lobby area would probably be loud due to live music playing nightly 'till 1...

I love this hotel. It was our second visit. I love the decor and the southwest atmosphere. We got in close to 10pm from traveling all day from Boston. Even though the kitchen was closing in 10min., they made sure we got food and drink. The music and people are all lots of fun. There is lots to do from all the shops, restaurants to the farmer's market. Each room is unique. I wish I could stay longer, every time I have been there.

I stayed in room 408 of the Helen house, this is a great room that is toward the back and away from noise. If you are planning on spending the day shopping, this place is extremely convienent. Its only a walk away from all the shops and restaurants and you get free parking while you are there. The rooms are pretty, with a romantic electric fireplace, but the beds are extremely firm, and the pillows kind of dissapointing. The shower is a walk in with a fold down seat if you want to sit down or are disabled. You are mostly paying for the convince here though, service was OK, I had to badger them with questions, they don't divulge information voluntarily. Overall good experience, awesome location for shopping.
