“suprisingly quiet, dog friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2011

i went to the Sun God Lodge during 'off season' and had asked for a room in the back courtyard~away from the road. perfect for me and my older dog. The room was quite small, but cozy and adequate. The bed was old, but it was very quiet and peaceful. No frills, but for the price I would go there again.

Room Tip: In back courtyard area, farthest from road . You hear NO traffic

this motel has several different room types so what you pay varies by room type and time of year, with weekdays being cheaper. i only paid $55 for a single, older room. it was small but nice and everything was clean. the in-room coffee and amenities were good quality. the double bed was ok. there's no air conditioning but there is a ceiling fan. as with most cheap motels, the walls are thin. there is expanded cable tv but no desk, table or chair so the only place to sit was the bed.
check-in was slow and i had to change rooms because the phone didn't work in the first room. then the ice machine also wasn't working so i had to go to the office to report it and get ice from a cooler there. i also asked for a wakeup call but never received it. so the motel has problems but the front desk people were always nice to deal with.

I've said it once or twice before, that everyone's entitled to their opinion, but so many single reviews posted are hotel-bashers. I'd love to know on what some people base their writing. Granted, a firm mattress is bliss to some, hard to another. I slept like a baby.
We stayed several nights here and from first to last, could not be happier with all aspects of the stay. We had a minor problem with electrics and rather than wait for the repair, the manager moved us immediately next door. On arriving back from the town an hour later he offered to upgrade us to a swanky room in the rear courtyard by way of apology.
Clearly a lot of effort has been made to create a south-west feeling to the courtyards and balconies and this extends to the room decor. We loved the lit niches in the walls that allowed gentle lighting in the evening. Chairs were provided outside each room so we could sit and sip something while the sun set.
It wasn't their fault that Fall fell with a vengeance in the night, along with a couple of feet of snow. We had the unusual experince of scraping a car windscreen in New Mexico! But the heating worked fine.
Gaspar- if I've got that right - your staff was very friendly and helpful. I will certainly come back and visit you next time I'm Taos. Muchisimas gracias para su amistad!

Room Tip: Upsatairs balconies have better sunsets.

This was absolutely the worst night of "sleep" I've EVER had. The beds were hard; it was almost as if I slept on the box spring with sheets on it. Upon check out we mentioned to the desk clerk of our dissatisfaction and her reply was "Sorry" accompanied by a shoulder shrug.

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel.

I found my room clean and my bed comfortable. Comfortable enough that I had a great sleep. Basic amenities but there was a coffee machine (yay) and free wi-fi (double yay). Lovely green courtyard but some people don't pick up after their dogs! Otherwise, lots of parking and well-lit at night. Heat was more than adequate. A little way out of "town" but only by a few miles. I would recommend this hotel especially if you're planning a stay of a few nights and are watching your pennies. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Thanks for a nice stay.

Room Tip: I stayed in #26 and it was absolutely fine. No traffic noise. I'll have a complete travel story...

Nice attendants, clean room and grounds, felt safe, and southwest decor to the max. We had 2 dogs with us, which added $10, and we got a ground floor deluxe room in the courtyard. The carpet had some staining on it, but I assume we got the 'dog' room, so that's probably why. The other downside was the bed was hard, springy, and low to the ground. We didn't have to use the air or heat because of the time of year, so no experience with those. Otherwise the bathroom was spotless, linens were fresh. Loved the organic bath products too. Good value!

Room Tip: Get a deluxe room, not too pricey

Great place! The hosts are very nice and the service was excellent. Wonderful courtyard, and my room was very quaint and comfortable. There was a couple soap wrappers on the bathroom floor and a washcloth on the shower rod, but these are minor. If you're looking for a cute, quaint place with great atmosphere in Taos, check out Sun God.
