Restful & Refreshing

Posted Jul 13, 2014
Pros: Ah, the large comfortably warm/refreshingly cool swimming pool — with a real "deep end" — was my favorite thing! And the huge old trees.
Cons: A bit more water applied to the vast lawns during dry times, with seasonal flowers perhaps grown in large pots in that area.
Location: In the heart of traditional, historic Taos, right up against the indigenous Pueblo lands.
It's a blessing that a classic, large Taos "motor lodge" is still available to us all! It is lovingly maintained, without too many modern, pricey frills. Treat yourself to '50s thru '80s elegance, while not too shabby at all.

so we arrived and the boy was in training and he did ok, however we booked thru expedia and they didn't have our info. So he went back to the office and the lady did find our info. She had said that she was busy and she hadn't had time to print off all the outside reservations. Ok that's good, However there were ppl behind us and there was another lady working to behind the desk and she never once said to those behind us that she could help them. The lady that was helping us/with the boy, had said that the other lady could help those behind us. Those customers said,"Well, she never said anything." So that lady needs to be on top of her game, when ppl come in. Then we had to come back to the lobby to get an extra towel, and again the boy was helping another customer. The other two ladies were nowhere to be seen. The phone kept ringing and I felt bad for the boy bc not only is answering the phones but also trying to wait on the other ppl. Finally, the other two woman came back in (im assuming went outside to smoke) and the phone was ringing again. The lady that was helping the boy answered the phone, and the other lady didn't even acknowledge me. Finally, when the boy was done, he did help me. Then at night the Indian dances they had-what a joke. First off they were over an hr late. One of them said one of the dancers had forgot his outfit, another older man said a key. Then when I think of Indian dances, I think of the fire pit going and a whole bunch of dancers-not just 2

Pros: The location was good.
Cons: Correct advertising so that it is not misleading. Clean bathrooms better.
Location: The location is good. It is fairly close to the square.
A hot tub, restaurant, and lounge were advertised as available on the hotel premises. This was untrue. The lounge and restaurant are no longer open. The hot tub was covered and had no water in it.

Nice quiet place to stay

Posted Jul 1, 2014
Pros: Quiet and close to shopping and dining
Cons: Some furniture and TV are dated
Location: Most things Taos has to offer are within easy walking distance
We have stayed in this motel a number of times over the past few years. This time we booked a room with king size bed and the room was very spacious compared to previous rooms we have had. Definitely worth a few dollars more. Breakfast choices are a plus.

If you really need to find a cheap room

Posted Jun 30, 2014
Pros: It was quiet and the ice machine while located couple buildings away worked. Location is short walk from plaza.
Cons: See my experience comments
Location: 2 blocks from plaza
The room was quiet and they offer a small but hot breakfast with 4 or so choices. There was no hot water, not even reasonably warm water and I let it run in hopes of getting warm enough to shower. Air conditioner didn't cool the room the first night but was fixed the 2nd. Cleaning staff came late morning when I happened to be in the room but never came back. Front desk staff curt. Room is pretty scruffy but if you only sleep there....

Expedia reserved the wrong room. The clerk told me all about it. The photos are online are not what the room was like. Very tacky. Dirty. Stained and smelly carpet. Matress wornnout. Linens appeared used. Did not even want to use the towels or shower. Slept in my clothes. The internet connection was good. Horrible, unless you cannot pay more than $60 to $80. Maybe then you may not have a choice.
