“Great Value in Taos”
Reviewed February 22, 2010

I've stayed in most of the 'budget' motels in Taos through the years and I keep coming back here. The hotel feels very comfortable compared to many places. It's also has a seasoned and professional staff; not a bunch of high school kids (as one popular establishment up the street seems to employ). The rooms are equally comfortable, with all the basic amenities; refrigerator, microwave, internet/desk, etc. The word 'suite' has been stretched in recent years, and though the rooms at this hotel do have a small divider between the sleeping and sitting areas, suite isn't the word that comes to mind. This hotel is located on the south end of town, so you'll need to drive to hit the plaza, shops, or decent restaurants. Anyhow, this is a good value for your money.

This hotel offers a lot of room for the money. Although it is not as atmospheric as other properties downtown, it's worth it if you like space. Since it's only a 5 minute drive from downtown, it's easy to get around IF you have a car.

This was a really nice hotel. The room we stayed in had a king, queen, and a living room. It was very clean, very well maintained, and breakfast was nice. We were pleasantly surprised and felt that this was nicer than other Comfort Inns that we have stayed at in the past. The location is good. It was easy to find and close to the attractions of Taos.

We decided to visit this hotel after a suggestion from a friend who lives in the area. We stayed at Santa Fe Suites the night before which was comparable to this hotel. In reading the reviews I was hesitant because of the reports of uncleanliness. At this point when you're travelling in a group of four, you don't need fancy but clean and simple.
According to our friend who lives in the area, the place was recently remodeled and the showers and toilet are newer. I'm not sure why the reviews are so low given the price we paid (under 90) but we're very satisfied. They have plenty of pillows and there are two tvs.
I've stayed at the Ritz, W, and other boutique hotels which are absolutely luxurious but I have to say at the given price point what more can you ask for? I don't like how people expect to pay for a two star hotel and expect five star amenities. You're not paying for ambiance and I'd really wish the reviews would reflect that. This seemed to be the problem I was getting in reviews around Taos and Santa Fe.
The shower pressure is good, the decor is definitely dated and not my taste. I wish they'd put a trashcan in the bathroom. The suites are VERY spacious. There's a separate room for a sofa and TV while the bedroom fits a king and queen bed with space to spare. The bathroom arrangement had the sink outside of the toilet/shower. We have wireless access but only because the we stayed closer to the lobby. The staff is helpful, albeit not the most efficient.

Had a very pleasant 5 night stay over the Labor Day weekend at the Comfort Inn Suites Taos.
We had booked a home through VRBO website, and upon arrival in Taos at 10:00pm, we found out house was not accessible without 4-wheel drive. The home was down a 3 mile “dirt” road with huge divots and pot holes the size of moon caters. The person that rents the home did not mention this to us and unfortunately we were in a compact rental car. We then decided to park the car and try walking to the home, after a 45 minute walk we arrived at the home to find it had no AC...And no ceiling fans, and hot as Hades inside, with this problem and the possibility of damage to the rental car due to the condition of the road, we decide to bail on the house. This left us scrambling for a room at 11:00 PM on an up coming Labor Day weekend, not an east task. We got out the phone book and began calling hotels and motels that could accommodate us, many could only accommodate us for 1 or 2 nights, not the full 5 nights we needed. Finally it came down to Hampton Inn and Comfort Suites which both had a room for the full 5 nights and happen to be right across the street from each other, so we headed that way.
We checked Hampton Inn first as it’s a newer hotel, they did not have a king bed as we would have liked, they only twin beds available but I decided to take a look anyway as we were tired from our trip. …The room was very tiny, with no mini - fridge or micro wave, and not up to the price they were asking, we politely declined the room at Hampton Inn and went across the street to Comfort Suites. The room was 10.00 less and the room was a suite with king size bed, with fridge and micro wave, which for the price was a great deal.
At first glance this motel might not do anything for you as it an older property, but by the end of our stay the Comfort Suites had won us over.
The staff is top notch…very friendly and really seems genuinely happy you are staying with them.
The complimentary breakfast in the mornings was a good way to start the day, nothing fancy, but was good enough for us.
They did have a pool but it was located in the back of the motel and between the buildings, ok for a dip but nothing to look at.
They had resident bats on the side entrance door that hung out there every night, it made coming back to the motel a hair raising experience but didn’t bother us too much as we got in the door as quickly as possible. The bats never moved from the upper corner of door, thankfully.
Only a few negatives, the bathroom fan was very loud,,,and comes on when you turn on the light…the AC is a window unit and could be considered loud but we liked sleeping to the white noise it made so not a problem for us.
The toilets took what seemed like forever to flush, making you feel nervous it wouldn’t complete flush…it eventually did…
Walls are very thin and noise from the hall can be heard easily.
The motel could use a bit more light in the room, seemed very dim inside and the light fixtures were a bit older.
On the positive side, great location…excellent water pressure from shower, nice pillows and sheets. The beds were ok, Ive had better and worse…middle of the road,
I did not smell any musty odors as previous reviewers mentioned.
The lobby is nice, and they have a computer that guest can use. The staff was kind enough to print out a few things I needed for my flight on my return trip.
We only used the housekeeping service a few times and they did a good job,,, we put out a do not disturb sign on the door and when we came back form breakfast a note was under our door telling us they came by but didn’t clean due to the sign and if we needed anything let the from desk know.
I got a newspaper some morning, some mornings I didn’t. When I did get one they seemed to give you what they had at the time, one day it was USA Today, then next day Albuquerque newspaper, no big deal, I read what they gave me.
I was very happy with comfort suites. Yes it’s a bit older and can sometimes show it age, but cant we all from time to time? Doesn’t mean we still don’t have a lot of life left in us and I expect that the case with Comfort Suites Taos…they will be welcoming guest and travelers for years to come.
Kudos to the staff, thanks for making our stay pleasant and fun, we look forward to our return visit to Comfort Suites and Taos.

I have stayed here a few times, much older facility. Staff is very helpful, wonder ig they are ownership, business center is glorified hallway console, rooms are straight out of Brady Bunch era. That said, the facilities are clean and spacious and location is central to some good restaurants. No workout facility can be problematic for local weather but for determined runner I recommend taking highway towards angel fire, very beautiful once you get a mile or two out for shorter routes head away from the main road to small homes in back of hotel.

Pros: Friendly staff, spacious rooms, near good mexican food

Cons: Old facilities, in
