This was 1000% better than the one in Ruidosa, NM. That was such a bad experience we almost wrote super 8's off forever. I guess it depends who manages or owns them. They are definitely not the same in each area.

It was an "OK" place to spend the night, but I would suggest you try some place else. You have to drive to find a place to eat and you have to drive to visit the plaza. Driving in Taos is not fun nor quick. The rooms are small and you can hear everything in the next room. The room and bath were clean. The staff were friendly.

This hotel looks nice from the outside. It has a interior hallway. However, it is an old small room. The bed is very hard. An old tv with 60+ channels. The HVAC system was inconsistant. The wi-fi was terrible. It worked sometimes.

The hotel is close to a busy road and is noisy.

Breakfast was marginal. Muffins, toast, cold cereal, juice, and coffee.

We were looking for value to enjoy downtown Taos. The Super 8 is just out of town and one block from the visitors center. The staff was very nice and answered our questions regarding what to see since we only had two days in Taos. Our king size bed was most comfortable and our room was kept spotless. We will definitely stay there again when we have opportunity to visit Taos. Bravo to a great staff!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have stayed at many Super 8's. They are usually decent and fairly-priced. I do not need luxury when I travel. My standards for a place to lay my head are not extreme. That being said, I would not stay here again and I will not recommend this hotel to anyone.

The location is fine. The staff was fine. Yes, it smells like smoke in the hallways but any hotel that still has smoking rooms is going to have that issue.

We did have to switch rooms. I don't think I've ever demanded to switch rooms before. As per our usual travel routine, the first thing we do is look for signs of bed bug infestation. If you don't know how to do that, I recommend that you learn as this is becoming a nightmare these days. Upon looking at the mattress in our room, we were 90% certain that the staining along the seams were the tell-tale fecal/blood stains indicative of a bed bug infestation. We used their free wifi (a bonus) to look up pictures of this phenomenon and the images we found online were identical to what we were seeing. We left the room and went to the front desk.

The person at the desk was very helpful in switching us to the only other room she had available. She seemed surprised as she thought the mattresses had just been replaced in all of the rooms on the first floor. There was, indeed, a dumpster in the parking lot full of mattresses, yet that room must have been missed or HORRIBLY infested.

The real disappointment for me was seeing that our old room was given to another party after I explained what we found in that room.

Our new room was acceptable. Breakfast in the morning was sparse, even for a Super 8. I get the impression that the owners/managers of this location know that they can make money on a hotel in Taos without investing much of their own money, time, or care in maintaining a nice oasis for weary travelers.

Worn-down is the only word that describes this place. Even though it was moderately clean, the place seemed dirty. The lobby was shabby and the room left no better impression. Smoke literally filled the air of the hallways in this supposedly non-smoking motel.
The room itself was worse. From the bits of 'stuff' on the floor, the carpet was obviously not vacuumed recently. The mattress made sleeping on a wooden plank preferable. The floors creaked so bad that the light fixtures vibrated with every footstep.
The bathroom was excessively small and drab. The sink was barely large enough to hold a toothbrush and had raw plywood screwed into the front as a covering for the plumbing. The toilet was the smallest I have ever had the displeasure of sitting on. It simply did not flush- there was simply not enough water to effectively fill the bowl.
In summary, this place was in such a state of disrepair that everything in it felt dirty and unpleasant.
