This place has two faces-- the public face with the bar and restaurant which was just great-- could not be better-- and the overnight inn which was just awful. I gave it two stars, but it's really more like a 1.5.
The room was noisy because it was next to a kitchen exhaust fan and over looking a dining area that was chock full of young kids. The room was also beat up and dingy. Staff members were unresponsive at best and rude at worst. When I asked about moving to a quieter room the young woman at the desk suggested that perhaps I would be happier checking out. When I asked for some soap because there was none on the room I was informed that they would get around to soap delivery later. Just awful. Plus, the pool was shut down "for the season" and there was obviously no attempt being made to repair it, even though the pool was one of the reasons we had picked the place. The closed pool meant that the jacuzzi (which is indoors and very dingy!) was full of kids.
I would not go back and I would no recommend it. Next time we go to Taos we will stay at one of the rennovated motor inns on edge of downtown.
