Reviewed October 27, 2013

Nice hotel, lovely grounds, convenient location, staff very nice. Good value for the money. Convenient parking, Like the fridge and microwave in our rooms. Comfortable beds, nice and quiet. We were up earlier than breakfast was served each morning but appreciated hot coffee available in the lobby.

Thank you for your kind comments. We have just taken over the management of the hotel and appreciate that the work is coming to reality.

The restaurant is now open for breakfast and lunch.
The adobe fireplace is going.
The hot tub will be ready shortly.

Thanks,
Josh and Andy, new management team.

The room was great. Clean, large and comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent. A good, hot breakfast that filled me up. The pool looked very inviting, though I didn't partake. The hotel is currently doing some renovation, but it didn't interfere. The staff was incredibly helpful and made me feel appreciated.

Room Tip: The hotel is laid out like a bunch of condos, each room is very private. Some look towards the court...

Large rooms at small room prices; very clean & quiet; indoor pool; close to old downtown; great staff. Breakfast--eggs, sausage juice coffee, hot water, variety of mini muffins, bagels, etc. I'd love to stay here again when I have more days to stay.

I read the previous reviews posted on here and noticed that the management gave a response to many reviews on this hotel. For this reason, I decided to give Don fernando de Taos the benefit of the doubt and book a stay for a last minute weekend to Taos to see the Fall colors. First of all, the staff is nice and accommodating. However, the hotel was in complete disrepair and probably would not pass inspection if were to be sold. The pictures on the website really need to be updated because there is no restaurant, bar or even a hot tub. My 6- yr old son was really looking forward to swimming in the pool, but I would not let him for several reasons; There was a piece of plywood covering the hot tub, there was a draft in the pool area, the heaters above looked like they have not been touched by a maintenace man in 30 yrs and looked as if they would fall into the pool. The cement around the pool needed to be resurfaced badly. In order to appease my son, we played pool in the lobby on a very dated pool table which surprisingly cost a dollar a game to play. Then, he needed to use the bathroom in the lobby and it smelled of a backed up sewer. The supposed restaurant that is "coming in fall of 2013" looks as if it has mountains to climb before it opens because there are visible leaks on the ceiling.
The room itself was ok for, again, 50 bucks a night. The exhaust fan in the bathroom didn't work. From inside the room you could see where the door needed new weather stripping. the room was very drafty but very hot when you turned on the outdated heater that probably didn't have a working thermostat. However, we did not have any bed bugs. the staff gave us extra pillows when we asked for them. The maid was very nice and made sure we had extra coffee.
My husband and I were both thinking of how nice this place must have been in its hey day and how it could still be a nice place if fixed up to expectations. The management really needs to take these reviews seriously and address the issues. For now, do not beleive what the management replies to my review unless you see it for yourself.

Room Tip: If you ask fo rwhat you want, the staff will try their best to help you

Found this hotel to be very well taken care of and very good hospitality. Central located to Taos activities with a relaxed park like setting. Not a high rise hotel but spread out for maximum ability to avoid noise etc. Good parking and rooms had all the desired comforts that I find desirable for being on my own. Fridge and microwave and along with the breakfast offered by the hotel made for most options needed. Ample sized rooms.

Room Tip: can request ground floor or the only two floors

I was in Taos for several days for the Wool Festival. My room was wonderfully spacious and I enjoyed the lay out of the property. The bed was comfortable and every night was quiet. The place is not new and it shows, but for the price.... it was great. I could hear the plumbing of an adjacent room, but no voices or TV sounds. I visited friends at other hotels and felt I had the best place for the price. The breakfast was adequate. I did not use the pool. I would stay again.

All the people at the front desk were very polite. The room was very spacious and all the complex is very well maintain. the breakfast room is big and there is also a lot of choices to start your morning. (orange juice, apple juice, water, coffee, bagels, muffin, cornflakes, eggs, sausages, ...). we checked out also the heated pool and looked clean, we didn't use it thou.
We recommend the place.
We saw also there were some construction in the lobby to renew the bar area, sure it will turn out nicely done.
we didn't use SPA or Fitness Center.
