“Great get away in Taos.!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Owners Cindy and Jasper were very congenial, professional and did everything to make my stay there a great one. Recommendations of local business es and directions to Ojo Caliente made my stay even more enjoyable.The room was quiet, clean and had everything I needed for one or more night's stay. The courtyard makes for a very welcome stay. I highly recommend the Sun God Lodge.
See you next time Cindy and Jasper!

Just returned from a 5-night stay in one of the rooms at the back across from the hot tub; really enjoyable. The room was a little smallish for 5 nights, but clean and comfortable. TV worked great, staff was friendly and front courtyard pretty with shade trees and blooming flowers. If I return to Taos I might try to stay again at Sun God. My only criticism is that housekeeping only supplies 2 bath-size towels daily, not enough if you and companion shower and use the hot tub both on same day.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back with AC, some rooms apparently don't have AC.

we have stayed here several times over the years and loved it. It has the old style courtyard in front and a newer 2 story units in the back. we like to stay in the back units they have air conditioning and are close to the hot tub. very quiet and pleasant rooms. this time it seemed that the maintenance was slipping a little. the paint was patchy where the walls had been scrubbed by the bathroom tile and the towel rack was falling off the wall. the rooms were very clean and staff very helpful.

Room Tip: we like to stay in the back. very quiet and private. close to the hot tub.

This is a quiet place to get a good night's sleep. The hotel is located on the main street across from Wal-Mart, and is especially convenient if you are wanting to visit Ranchos de Taos.

Our room was large and included a microwave and frig, and came with dishes. The room was clean: clean sheets, clean bathtub, and clean floor.

The hot tub was open and clean the night we were there. The wifi was down due to the provider replacing the buried cable. It should be completed in around 3 weeks.

The best part about this hotel is the staff. The front desk agent, manager, and even the maintenance guy were friendly, professional, and helpful. The front desk agent recommended a few events taking place the night we were there. The following day, the manager and maintenance man made several good recommendations about where to eat.

The staff was also extremely accommodating to infants with special needs (infant is a preemie who must have a VERY clean environment. His room was exceptionally clean.)

Room Tip: If you have an infant with special needs - let the staff know. They are really accommodating.

We stayed at this motel only one night and cancelled the second night because of soiled linen on the bed and mold in the bath tub area. The area outside was lovely but there is a need to do some serious cleaning.

Very nice people in the front office and gave good advice on restaurants in the city.

After checking in with a super helpful and friendly desk clerk, we motored to the back of the property and parked right below our second floor motel room. Large room with two queens, mini-kitchen, air-conditioner, large window, great view, nice clean hot tub and very quiet. We also liked the wide deck like walkway in front of the room, it was like having a balcony. We hate being sealed up in the new sterile box like hotel rooms, so this retro motel was a delight. Our mattresses could have had a little more fluff and we had one burned out light bulb, but because the price was reasonable it was no big deal. The managers are a major plus for this hotel, they were superior. We will definitely stay with them again.

Room Tip: The rooms are varied and different, the managers will work with you.

Sun God has a good location, nicely sized rooms, and reasonable prices. However, there is too much deferred maintenance, sloppy housekeeping and problematic staff to be assured of a satisfactory stay.

After two recent stays where both reservations were mishandled, unemptied wastebaskets, burned out light bulbs, a lumpy bed and a truly incompetent front desk person, I can suggest that Sun God should be a "last choice" for a stay in Taos.
