Historic Taos Inn Review

A 10-minute walk north of Taos Plaza, this celebrated property is a local landmark, with some devotees having been regulars here for decades. Spanish-colonial architecture, including decorative alcoves in rooms, lends a warm, distinctive aesthetic to the four buildings, including the upscale Helen's House, which contains some of the fanciest rooms. Older units have thick adobe walls, viga ceilings, and other elements typical of vintage Taos architecture. In summer there's dining alfresco on the patio. The lobby, which also serves as seating for the Adobe Bar, is built around a former town well from which a fountain bubbles forth. Many shops and eateries are within walking distance, and the restaurant, Doc Martin's, is great for people-watching.

    Historic Taos Inn Review

    Taos Inn is the most lovely and historical hotel that I would recommend everyone for your stay in Taos. In spite of small size of a boutique hotel, the rooms were nice and cozy. I love the living room where they had free night live Southwestern music, yummy nacho and refreshing margaritas from in house Adobe Bar. Located at downtown, it was very convenient to go sightseeing around Taos plaza, shopping and visiting many historical places. A lot more of exciting things you could find here at Taos Inn. I would definitely come back!

    Historic Taos Inn Review

    The Historic Taos Inn is located in the heart of Taos, New Mexico. Where all the shopping and galleries are. You are walking distance to most everything. The rooms are all unique in their own way no 2 rooms are the same. thee room I was in is above The Adobe Bar very quaint and comfortable room. Nightly entertainment until 10 which was a plus. The nachos in "The Adobe Bar" were excellent with chicken. Try the Cowboy Buddha margarita so yummy.

    Historic Taos Inn Review

    the taos inn is a unique hotel, in the heart of downtown taos. what i liked best about it was the atmosphere which captures historic Spanish culture theres a really cool night scene here too in the adobe bar downstairs in the lobby where theres an award winning bar and live music. plus just outside the taos inn are a bunch of neat art exhibits. also it is only a few minutes away from the taos pueblo which is a really cool sight in taos. another plus is its really close to angel fire, and taos ski valley which are two great ski resorts. i think what separates the taos inn from other hotels is its historic ambiance. i have to say i had a really good time at this hotel, the rooms were nice staff was pleasant, and theres great food at the adobe bar and doc martins which are located just downstairs in the lobby

    Taos was a bit "slow" but this place was busy. We hadn't known when we would be here, so we simply stopped in to see what they had, as we wanted two nights. We got a very comfortable Queen bedded room (with a couch, plenty of space and non-working fireplace that we wouldn't "need" anyway) in the main building. While there was live entertainment nightly, it was over at 10PM, so not a problem at all. We had a terrific breakfast here, but for dinner we went across the street for dinner to Graham's Grill (not on your list) which was SO good we went both nights. Great inventive food, excellent wine list, well priced.
