Great stay at the Sage Brush Sep 2014

Posted Sep 15, 2014
Pros: The place has history, its not all spit and polish, the atmosphere reflects the personality of Taos, it's comforting as your favorite pair of jeans.
Cons: Great hotel it just needs a little maintenance.
Location: Its a few miles to the plaza but the hotels location allows you to use alternate routes to avoid going through downtown when traffic is backed up.
Stayed at the Sagebrush the first week of Sept. Nice hotel. Somewhat dated but that's the charm of the place. The staff was fantastic on all accounts and everyone we dealt with to include front desk, housekeeping, bar staff, restaurant personnel and even groundskeepers/maintenence were pleasent to deal with and always took care of us with a smile. Our original room was facing the courtyard but on the second day we realized we made a mistake and were missing out on the great desert view. We went to the front desk and asked about moving and their answer was "Sure, we can move you!". They provide us a room on the second floor with a great desert view (GREAT SUNSETS) at no additional charge. The food in restaurant was very good and the cooked to order breakfast (included with room) was a very nice addition. The hotel is a couple miles from the plaza which is nice as it allows you to get away from the downtown crowds and lets you view the surrounding landscapes which are beautiful (Desert valley view to the west, Mountains and upper valley to the east).

Pros: History of hotel.
Cons: Needs major renovation!!
This used to be a very special place to stay; it is in such bad state of repair now it needs a major renovation. I have stayed at Motel 6 units at 1/3 the cost and was a better hotel.

La cueva

Posted Sep 3, 2014
Pros: Staff
Cons: Umm....where to start...everything!
Location: Off the beaten path and not walkable to downtown Taos.
We named our room la cueva, which means "cave" because that's what our room felt like - dark, musty, and in terrible need of a facelift. I'm sure this place was a high-end resort about 40 years ago, but now it's a musty-smelling, creepy little dump of a place. Hotel staff were very nice, though. I highly recommend for those looking for some nostalgia or Americana-kitsch. More power to you!

Location: Nice location for some motorcycle riding outside of Taos.
Nice older Facility . Hotel was well kept and room came with an actual free breakfast not just coffee and a doughnut. Everything was clean and worked fine. Beds were comfortable and we enjoyed our stay there . Nice outdoor courtyard to hang out with friends as well .

Quaint and disappointing

Posted Aug 30, 2014
Pros: Clean.
Cons: This legacy hotel needs renovation inside and out.
Location: Taos is a great place to visit with wonderful history and art.
We knew the Sagebrush Inn was an older hotel that has a following by many due to memories from many fond stays in years past, so we were prepared for it to be an older hotel in historicTaos. Unfortunately, even though we were pleased it was clean, it was terribly outdated. My colleage was given a room key where another guest was already registered and in the room, the "upgrade" was full of many sized beds, not truly a suite and felt awkward and uncomfortable. The TV, the only amenity, was a very old analog with a very fuzzy picture that prohibited any viewing pleasure. The fridge that was sitting on a table squeeked all night and I could hear the TV next door until 3 am. The furniture was very old worn out, truly from the 1950's. As we checked out everyone had a different complaint, phone didn't work, a chair broke when a child sat down in it. The staff seemed tired, likely from the constant complaints. This legacy hotel needs rennovation and TLC.

Too rustic.

Posted Aug 26, 2014
Hotel was a little more rustic than we anticipated based on the recommendation of Taos Country Club personnel. Breakfast was great and employee service were great.

Room not ready or clean even after check-in; TV remote missing batteries and although it appeared that staff was aware, I had to walk approx 500 yards to office to turn remote in, and back to room to await its delivery. Desk staff distracted and inattentive.

Old but beautiful

Posted Aug 9, 2014
My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. Not exactly what we were expecting, but still charming and nice. Breakfast may come with the room, but it's not much food. The hotel itself is gorgeous and has wonderful views of the mountains, but it is very old and needs some room updates and repair.
