They have GREAT deals in conjunction with a couple of ski slopes in the area (Taos Ski Valley and Sipapu), so if you go during ski season and they still have these, it's a great bargain! We ended up getting an upgrade to the fireplace room because they had extra room I think. The room was very spacious and rustic, and we had firewood, tools and matches. You could also get fire starter from the front desk every night.
Just a few odd/negative things about the room: It smelled like crayons (different, not necessarily horrible), the shower handle adjusted between cold and scalding and -- as someone mentioned in another review -- there was an incredible amount of static electricity going on with the sheets! This completely freaked me out one night when I saw sparks flying when I touched the sheet after scooting across the floor in fuzzy socks. Then it became a fun light show for our kids. It was ultimately a neat science experiment, and no one spontaneously combusted, so it was all good.
Anyway, the main hotel area is historic and quite lovely in a rustic way. Fireplace, nice bar, and a nice dining room. We didn't do dinner there, but we did borrow the computer and, of course, partake in the included breakfast. The sit-down, hot breakfast was much better than the continental breakfast you find in more modern hotels. Also, the hotel staff were extremely nice and helpful. They recommended restaurants, gave us extra fire starter -- and the bartender gave us directions and suggestions for the drive back, including a suggestion to go to Echo Canyon, which were happy to find. Parts of the hotel grounds could use a little TLC/cleanup, but overall, this was a unique place with lots of character and some good amenities.
