“Wonderful Experience, Warm and Friendly”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

I stayed her with a friend on our way to Ghost Ranch. Robert, Jules and of course Stormy were the most welcoming and friendly hosts. We were only there for a short time but I will definitely be staying with them in the future.

The morning breakfast was delicious. Robert and Jules gave us excellent tips and points about our journey from Taos to Ghost Ranch. We had a time constraint, their input was critical. Thank you Robert and Jules for a great experience.

Our family of six, all agreed this was the perfect Christmas get away. Our children, all over the age of 17, commented on how cozy and "like home" it was. We were welcomed and made to feel at home and comfortable immediately. Robert, Jules and the helpers around the Inn, made a point of being helpful and kind, always with warm smiles to brighten the day. Breakfast and Christmas dinner were homemade, everything was beyond delicious.....exceptional! The meals and snacks were plentiful and satisfying to every appetite and tastebud. If there is another opportunity to return, we'll be back! Blessings to all.

The Inn on the Rio has been my go to since the late '90's. The rooms, the atmosphere, the exterior, and the common areas are the best ever. Being welcomed by Robert, Jules and Stormy makes the experience complete. Robert and Jules always take the time to help with sightseeing plans and the newest restaurants to visit. The wonderful breakfast beats anything in town, and afternoon snacks with coffee or tea in front of the kiva fireplace makes for a perfect ending to a long day. As usual can't wait to go back.

We had an unforgettable Thanksgiving experience at this B&B. The owners showed true hospitality. They even came out to say goodbye to us when we were leaving. The Thanksgiving feast was so tasty, and we had the best turkey ever. The Kiva fireplace in the dinning was incredibly beautiful. Even our teenage kids enjoyed this place very much. Our stay was superior to what a St. Regis can offer. I definitely recommend this B&B in Taos.

We just returned for our 3rd Thanksgiving weekend. It has become a wonderful tradition for us. The hosts are fabulous, breakfast a true treat, and we get great advise about the best activities around town. Rooms are delightful. Our 8 and 11 year old girls can't wait to come back. We have been coming to Taos for 30 years and have tried everything....but this is our over the top favorite.

Room Tip: All rooms great.

Delightful accommodations. Relaxing setting. WONDERFUL breakfast. Innkeepers are a wealth of information for what to do, where to go for Taos and the area. We've been to the Inn twice and left each time looking forward to our return.

Half historic motel and half B&B this property finds a nice medium by providing reasonably priced rooms with a B&B touch. Check in was a breeze as we walked in with no appointment but with open rooms during the Taos off season. We were shown a couple of options which were both unique and demonstrated the owners personal touch. The rooms are small motel rooms but the motif was fresh, the rooms were very clean, and the bedding was very comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was a lite offering of fresh baked bread, muffins, egg entree and fruit; I say lite in regard to small but reasonable selection but all was plentiful and the egg skillet was great! Owners were polite, friendly, and knowledgable of the area which was nice. The house keeper was very friendly as she deligently worked to keep the fall leaves at bay with a friendly attitude that showed in her work.
