Fodor's Expert Review El Pueblo Lodge
412 Paseo del Pueblo Norte, Taos, New Mexico, 87571, USA Fodor's Choice
Among the budget-oriented properties in town, this well-maintained adobe-style hotel with a fun retro sign out front and the vibe of an old-school motel is a real gem. The complex comprises several buildings—plus a heated seasonal pool and year-round hot tub—on a peaceful 3-acre spread several blocks north of the plaza. Rooms in the West Building, constructed in the '80s, are a bit more spacious, and some have kiva-style fireplaces, but the original building, a vintage 1940s motor lodge, has more character, with its thick adobe walls and viga ceilings.
- terrific value
- short walk north of the plaza
- complimentary charcoal and utensils to use on barbecue
- nothing fancy (but still bright decor and clean rooms)
