La Posada de Taos B&B
Ranked #10 of 23 Taos B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Great place with a historical feel. Inn keepers do it right and rooms are exactly what you expect--not the Four Seasons but historical and with a great feel. A super place for reasonable folks who come to Taos because it is not Santa Fe. Great breakfast and good common areas. Will stay here again when in Taos.

I stayed here earlier in the week on my last night in New Mexico and absolutely loved my room, El Solecito, just off the main living room. The King-size bed was so comfortable! I also loved that the room had its own traditional adobe fireplace and sitting area. It was beautifully decorated with Native American crafts and local paintings, and with charming touches, such as a rustic ladder in the living room section to hold a handwoven rug and in the bathroom to hold towels. I also loved that El Solecito had its own private patio.

Breakfast was a communal affair and hearty. A cooked entree, juice, coffee or tea, granola, yogurt, fresh fruit, and a baked good were more than enough to satisfy and fortify one for sightseeing or hiking until a late lunch. Mine hosts were more than obliging and generous.

With a walled, courtyard garden and hardy, drought-resistant flowers, cacti, and flowering trees, this lovely, historic, pueblo-style home was a peaceful oasis within walking distance of the Taos Plaza. The B & B, itself, was unobtrusive and the perfect place for an overnight stay. I only wish I could have stated longer, and I would certainly recommend La Posada de Taos as a great alternative to a hotel!

P.S. If you have the opportunity to stay here, do take time out to speak with Mary, who helped me with my luggage. A lovely person, she knew the Santa Clara potters, whose work I collected back in the seventies, as well as their families!

Room Tip: El Solecito is conveniently located just off the living room an d close to the dining room. Nice to...

My lady & I were on our annual road trip through parts of the USA. This year we elected to go to Taos and to travel with our canine child, Mrs Jones. Of course, when traveling with one's dog, accommodations can be a challenge in the US (as opposed to most European countries). Thus, we were quite pleased to find La Posada de Taos on TripAdvisor, with so many excellent reviews. I called the inn and spoke directly with Sharon to make the reservation. She suggested the Lino room as this room has direct access from outside, allowing us to bring Mrs Jones in without going through the main house. All seemed reasonable, including the 10% AAA discount, so I went ahead and booked.

We arrived at the inn at about 3:45 pm , and check-in hours are only from 4 to 6 pm. Nevertheless, Sharon was kind enough to open the door to let us in. We were the only guests checking in that day but even with that, Sharon didn't seem to remember that we had booked with a dog until I reminded her that was why she put us in the Lino room - not a problem, really, but just seemed odd given we were the only ones arriving.Sharon was also kind enough to provide some restaurant names and also to lend us a hiking guide book for our use during our stay. However, unlike some of the other posts, there was no sign, nor mention, of any welcoming wine and cheese or afternoon cookies; just an introduction to the house, instructions about breakfast (first we knew of a one seating 830 only timing), and a request to not bring the dog into the main house.

Breakfast each day was okay. Fresh fruit and yogurt are always welcome. Each breakfast entree was also well presented and reasonably tasty - although the green chile sauce on the huevos rancheros was a little bland. Good but not excellent as many other posts have it. We have certainly had better at other B&Bs in the US. While we enjoy the experience of meeting new people in a B&B - one of the fun reasons to stay in one - we do think a choice of breakfast times would be an added benefit. When one plans on spending on the day hiking in the mountains, an 830 breakfast makes for a late start to the day - maybe a 730 seating also?

Rochelle, who cooked and served breakfast on two of our three mornings there, was very friendly and made some excellent restaurant recommendations.

Other posts also mention a newspaper available in the mornings...not sure whether this "feature" has been discontinued but we certainly didn't see, nor were we offered, a paper.

The Lino room was adequate but very small. The bed was oddly placed in the corner of the room and there was nowhere comfortable to sit in the room - just an old, hard "period" couch. The bathroom was old, shower only, and could use some updating. Also the water system was a little "hit and miss" with temperature fluctuating wildly if someone else in the building was using water. I realise the inn is an older building but modern, temperature balancing, fixtures could still be discreetly installed.

On the second day of our stay towels that had been placed on the floor for replacement were simply rehung and not replaced. We knew this as they were still damp from the morning use. We went in search of our own and managed to find some clean replacements. I find it odd that this happened - at the prices charged, clean towels should not be deemed a luxury. Perhaps this was their towel reuse policy but usually towels on floor means please replace, not "at your discretion".

The Lino room also has a small courtyard attached, perfect fro the dog. The courtyard has a table and two chairs - a nice touch for sitting outside in the evening. Unfortunately the chairs are metal, with no cushions provided and thus not conducive to relaxing in the evening.

On the last morning of our stay, breakfast took a bit of a bizarre twist. When we arrived in the dining room, the table was set for twelve people - a sign, I thought of a full house. Sure enough there were four other guests at the table, two of whom we had met the day before and quite enjoyed talking to. We were getting seated when suddenly three other people - one adult and two children showed up. Fair enough, I thought, more guests, But no, it turns out this was the daughter and grand-children of one of the innkeepers. Then five minutes or so later, two more of their family showed up. Now, we hadn't seen either Sharon or Karen for more than a few minutes on the other days of our stay but this morning they ere suddenly there serving breakfast to all. We felt oddly as though we had "crashed" or intruded on a Sharon/Karen family breakfast - not what one expects in a B&B. To top it off, Sharon then started taking pictures of everyone at the table, without asking permission! It would have been churlish to object at that point and, to be honest, I was too surprised to do so. I have since asked them to delete the pictures but have had no response so far.

I know Sharon & Karen are fairly new as the innkeepers here but I would have expected a little more professionalism.

So, in summary: an ok place, to which we could take our dog. A good location for walking into the plaza. Reasonable breakfasts. So so room furnishings. Hit & miss on amenities offered. Not professional at last morning breakfast. We will most likely return to Taos but unlikely we shall stay here again.

La Posada's owner, Sandy, very generously donated 2 rooms to the local Lions Club so that our band, 35 Degrees North, would have a place to stay when we came to play for the Taos Lions Club's Taste of Taos fundraiser. What a treat to stay in this B and B! The rooms are quite comfortable and beautifully decorated in true Taos style. The inn itself is beautiful, with plenty of areas to relax both inside and out, The innkeepers, Karen and Sharon, are gracious hosts and their breakfasts are delicious! La Posada is tucked away in a quiet corner of Taos but is within easy walking distance of the main Taos plaza with its many restaurants and shops. Thanks for the wonderful stay, Sandy!

Taos is one of our favorite destinations and we have had some great places to stay. However we have now found our new "home" when we visit. We stayed last year and opted to try it again. It exceeded our expectations and simply could not have been nicer. The La Posada de Taos is in an ideal location close to anything and everything you want to do in Taos. Walking distance to shops, galleries and restaurants. The Inn is quiet, spotless, warm, friendly and comfortable with safe parking. The Innkeepers are so welcoming and go out of their way to make you feel at home. We stayed in the Monterrey room which was private and quiet with a lovely back patio. The Inn is perfect for a romantic weekend getaway or an ideal place to rest and relax after an exciting day of hiking and traveling. We can't wait to return.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are lovely and well appointed. Really can't go wrong. For couples, and for qu...

We had a family reunion from July 18-20 at the La Posada de Taos. New innkeepers Karen and Sharon were gracious and helpful hosts. The La Posada is an old home and each room is reflective of the Spanish past and influence in Taos. Rooms are tasteful and comfortable and roomy. Coffee is available at 7am and a wonderfully hearty breakfast is served at 8:30am to all guests together. A great opportunity to meet and get acquainted with very nice people. La Posada is conveniently a block and a half from the Plaza, saving the trouble of finding somewhere to park for many of the activities you go to Taos to experience. It was delightful and we highly recommend it to someone who wants a relaxing and very comfortable visit to Taos.

Room Tip: We had four rooms and all were differently decorated and very comfortable.

We spent 2 nights at this very lovely and historic B&B in old Taos. Excellent breakfast, very quaint and spotless surroundings. Owners are helpful and friendly, served wine and cheese in the afternoon which was very welcome after a long drive in the rain. Safe parking is a real plus. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Monterrey room which was small but comfortable.
