We have stayed at this hotel/motel five or six times. Before we always reserved a king room which as been very adequate in size. This time we reserved a two room suite which is convenient because I can get up with the dog early and let my wife sleep in. And obviously the property is pet friendly.
I think there are eight different buildings, each with two floors. The lay out is great and the hotel is on Pueblo del Sur, the main road through Taos. The rooms are in need of remodeling including new carpets and new furniture. You might say everything is well worn.
The landscaping is in need of maintenance as the lawn had not been mowed in over two weeks, weeds were everywhere, and volunteer Siberian elms were in many of the flower beds. The bar in the main building was closed, supposedly being updated although there was no sign of activity. Breakfast was provided in the restaurant. The food was fair. This was apparently the only use of the restaurant.
The property could be great with the location and layout. But the owners need to invest in it or it will be gone before long.
