Not a lot of choices in Taos, but this was disappointing. Classic Southwest décor but probably not remodeled in more than 10 years. Carpet stained throughout. Pool was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient to shops and restaurants"
Location was great for walking distance to all the local shops and restaurants. It was a nice quiet place. There were Native American dancers giving scheduled dance programs every evening.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice walking path"
We enjoyed our stay. As you travel you need to walk and they have a very nice walkway in the back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I love staying here. I don't have real high expectations in NM. It's obvious that they work hard with what it is, old. Remodeling is the only way to make it better in my opinion.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location, great price, pretty decent breakfast, Staff was friendly but hotel has seen better days...I'd say 30 years ago. If a well maintained place is important to you I'd say stay away. I'd probably stay again but I would be afraid to recomend it to some one else!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel room was okay. It was clean and quiet. The common areas in the building that we were in was in need of cleaning. We enjoyed the hot breakfast ordered from a menu. The pool water was not heated on the day that I took my granddaughter which was Saturday, June 7th. When asked for the key to the hot tub; we were told that it was inoperable that […] day well. A couple that was sitting by the pool stated that the hot tub was not working the day before on June 6th. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed at the Kachina in Taos before and will stay there again. The hotel does need some work. The staff is upbeat and helpful. The buffet breakfast is good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tolerable, but not great"
Chose this place because of the price and you get what you pay for. The hot water wasn't quite hot, the TV was a 20 year old relic that made that high pitched squealing noise old TV's make the entire time it was on. The A/C unit never quite seemed to function properly or keep up with the temperature. The place was clean and tolerable, but there's a […] reason it's way cheaper than the other places in town.

Could be a nice hotel but run down and poor maintenance. Rooms OK but corridors and common areas in need for a good clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good place for the price"
This was exactly what we expected - we were hoping for a cheap and different place (not a chain), and this was it. Great breakfast in the morning, which was a bit unexpected. It is walking distance to shops and restaurants, pretty quiet, and clean rooms. Would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I liked the early check-in time!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were promised early-morning coffee in the lobby, but it was never provided. The room, itself, was comfortable, but there was no coffee maker, fridge, or microwave available.. Breakfast ranged between a "2" and a five, depending on whether it was served buffet-style in the meeting room or served-style in the restaurant. Restaurant service was exc […] eptional!

"Ok, but has seen better days"
This hotel has seen better days, and not recently. Having said that, it was better than I expected, given other reviews. The room was small but clean and quiet. The WiFi worked. The staff was quite pleasant. The room rate was reasonable. Breakfast was plentiful and cooked there (not microwaved eggs and sausage and that flip-over waffle). The location […] is good, with downtown Taos shops, restaurants and galleries an easy short walk. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Used to be nice"
I don't usually complain on things like this, but this hotel is not what it used to be and appears to be very mismanaged. When I checked into my room, it was already occupied, kind of scary. Was "upgraded" to a King. Whole property did not seem very safe. Might reconsider representing this particular property on your site until they get things toge […] ther.

"Close to sights."
Had 2 rooms, mine was very good, the hot water was nonexistent in the bath in the roon my daughter and granddaughter shared. The free breakfast was outstanding.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We really enjoyed our room and the benefit of having our dog with us. We were close to the old town plaza, and right next door was the Alehouse. The breakfast was very good also the next morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
For the money this was a fantastic deal. The room was nice enough, as nice as rooms I've paid double or more for. The bed was a bit on the firm side. I enjoyed walking to town and the park down the street. Everyone was courteous.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed at the Kachina Lodge for two nights. It's on the north edge of town and it's a little walk to downtown, but we didn't mind. The room was adequate. Neighbors were loud the first night, but they were gone the second. Breakfast was awesome! Our waitress, who was the only one working in the cafe besides the cook, was hilarious. They have a menu […] of about 10 items that they cook for you. Yes, cook! None of this buffet-style, make your own waffle stuff. I'm talking delicious Spanish omelettes, fluffy scrambled eggs, or greasy sausage links. Yum. We barely missed out, but during the summer months, they have Native American dancers from the nearby Pueblo every night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for the price"
We got a pretty good deal on the room rates so can't complain to much. It is within walking and/or driving distance of everything we wanted to do. KTAO solar radio station had a great concert Friday night which was a short drive, walked to shops on Saturday, drove to Chimayo on Sunday. Great trip. Breakfast made to order was included and they were very […] accommodating to our special needs. The carpet in the room was a little gross but bathroom was clean. No remote to the TV but we were not in the room for very long. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"All and all, a lovely place to stay!"
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Kachina Lodge! My room was cute and clean, the staff very friendly, breakfast was tasty and freshly cooked, and the location! Wow! It was walking distance from the historical part of town which was just beautiful. I stayed there with my two cats who seemed to enjoy the room as well. There was also a very nice enclosed […] hot tub. I will definitely be staying there again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best Lodging Value in Taos, NM!"
After using all the affordable and many pricier lodgers since 1980, I pronounce this Taos' Best lodging value today. A great way to experience the indoor/outdoor museum/gallery/exercise/sports/scenery experience of Old (1600's) Taos without breaking the bank! Solidly built, courteously operated, it features traditional architecture with Native American […] themes. Lots of original art in spacious public gallery area. Completing renovation to recover from Taos' loss of natural gas several winters ago. I have stayed there for 30 years without any noise problems. No alcohol sales or noisy lounge inappropriate to children. Convenient moderate walk to historic Taos Plaza square, past microbrewery nextdoor, galleries & cafes, Michael's Kitchen (grade-A), and pricey but unique historic Taos Inn (eat at Doc Martin's Restaurant and enjoy nightly live music). Location north of Plaza avoids most stoplights and and 2-lane traffic congestion for a straight shot north to Taos Pueblo, Casino, Ski Valley, Rio Grande Gorge, and Colorado. Various choices of free hot breakfast till 10:30 in the unique round Kiva Coffee Shop with massive authentic Totem Pole in center. Outdoor pool with year-round hot tub.

The hotel was very outdated but pretty quiet. The surroundings were beautiful and they offer free breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is an older hotel and the rooms could use an update. The staff was courteous and the free breakfast was good. The room was good for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A well-run, bargain older property"
A cute place, well kept, very nice people, and the included breakfast is legit cafe food (not a lame buffet carb-fest). There were some noises at times from the neighboring rooms and parking area; this is a function of the low price and let's face it, this is an older property. Bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper, and it's great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not too clean"
The hallway smelled like smoke. At the bottom of the stairs, there was a bunch of trash and a bike in a pile. Only one person was working and she couldn't leave the front desk to get some towels for another guest. It too quite a while to check in because she was on the phone with another guest. They can afford an art gallery in their hotel, but they […] can't make some improvements on their rooms, like comfortable mattresses? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Conveniently located hotel is priced right"
The hotel is well located, within walking distance of the plaza, with plenty of parking. It also included a hot breakfast in the very reasonable room rate. The bed was comfortable and the bathrooms clean. That's the good news. The bad news: the rooms are incredibly dated, in major need of upgrades such as carpet and paint and better TVs. Our room was […] small, dark and even had a musty smell when we first entered. The staff was friendly, especially the waitress in the coffee shop. The reception area of the hotel was much nicer than the individual rooms, much more bright and attractively decorated. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was large, comfortable and quiet. The hot breakfast was in a connected full scale, public restaurant with a wide variety of selections. We were impressed with the art gallery connecting the lobby with the restaurant as well as the original large Remington statue outside the front entrance!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great deal for the money!"
Loved it, rooms are ok, great breakfast, great location, good service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff seem nice enough, but patrons who are "troubled" were allowed to openly discuss their personal issues in the breakfast area and making other guests uncomfortable. The waitress Rose made no to little attempt to curb the conversation; in fact she was an active participant. Oh well, I guess that's what you get for choosing the cheapest option on […] the list. I felt bad for the woman whose face was beat up. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good value. Within walking distance to plaza. Not to far from skiing. Good Resturants close by. Good size roomGenuine Expedia guest review
"Had a great stay......except......"
The Kachina is an older hotel; however, it is kept up pretty good. We did enjoy our stay with one exception. Our last night, we had next door neighbors....young girls that laughed and screamed and I had to pound on the wall to quiet them down. So walls are not very sound proofGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I have been going to the Kachina Lodge since the Seventies. It is a family tradition. One of the highlights of our family trip every year was breakfast and the Kachina Lodge Café. We would have sausage and hashbrowns covered in green chili. In fact we ate enough to allow us to skip lunch and ski all day. Currently there is one poor overwhelmed cook […] who probably just never cooked in his life. The waitress was panicked when facing eight customers. And her drama with everyone's drama. She shared the fact that the cook was brand-new with everyone at least twice. The burden of telling everyone of her suffering with a brand new cook prohibited her from refilling coffee. I ordered two pieces of sausage. It took 35 minutes. It seemed that a good bit of the hotel was vacant. That didn't stop them from putting a folksinger directly above my room. I heard every chord changes he struggled to play his guitar. Obviously this is no longer a best Western property. The lack of supervision is evident. I am sorry to see a family tradition die because of incompetent management. . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Room smelled and was dirty. No hot water in shower. Sheets were clean but mattress and pillow will lumpy. Could not afford to book another room somewhere else. Hotel staff did not tell me about complimentary breakfast. I found out by accident on second morning. Ordered and left after waiting almost 1 hour. Never even received water. They didn't have […] iced tea and had only 1 waitress for entire restaurant. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Internet needs a TON of upgrading, the room runs at dial-up speeds, went to the lobby and it wasn't much better. Don't plan on getting ANY work done if you need the internet. Breakfast is OK food-wise, but took just under an hour, very slow, so get there right when it opens if you need to get somewhere. Location is OK and shuttle for the ski area is […] convenient.

Hotel was old and bed was not comfortable. Heater would not adjust so room was very hot. Could hear the people next door talking, walls were not very insulated. It is in a good location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy to find"
Hotel is convenient for skiers. There are 2 shuttles to the slopes that stop here for only $2 round trip. Hotel needs an update & the restaurant is only open for breakfast with a very limited menu. Lounge was closed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cute Old Style Roadside America"
From the first moments, I knew I was in for a treat. Very charming place, looks right out of the 1960s golden age of travel and yet was up-to-date with what we expect from today's hotels. Breakfast was full and either in the Hopi Dining room or the cafe, decorated with super-kitsch native statues and plenty of vintage fixtures. I recommend this to anyone […] who does not want their time in Taos taken up by cookie-cutter hotels and boring chains but wants to see something special. As with any historic structures, there may be signs of age here and there. Again, if you want a plastic boring hotel with everything new but from Home Depot, stay somewhere else. If you want to chat with interesting people, have friendly staff, and take the bottomless coffee looking at Kachina paintings, stay here. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

No daily room cleaning. Hotel staff sleeping on couch. Breakfast began late. It appears to have been a good hotel years ago.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is looking very old and needs a lot of work. Thermostat doesn't work right. When we arrived the room temperature was 60 degrees. I set the thermostat at 70. We came back 4 hours later and the room temperature was 62. I had to call the front office and they told me I had to set the thermostat all the way up to 90 to get any heat. It took another […] couple of hours to warm up the room Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Room clean but had musty smell, bed hard as a rock. Need new beds and air fresheners.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It is in need of a major renovation."
The complex has a wonderful restaurant hotel lobby with wonderful paintings. It needs new carpet and paint. I hope to see someone take over that can make it the resort it once used to be.Genuine Expedia guest review
"close to plaza is only plus"
very dated decor. lounge was closed for unstated reason. hot breakfast was late and limited each day. no coffee in room. heat failed on 2nd night with room temp at 55 degrees. do ya think we'll be back? nope!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"loved the receptionist, but....."
Wouldnt stay there again.receptionist was the best thing about our stay.She was bright, and friendly and very welcoming. rooms were decent size, and adequately clean, but smelled of cleanser and are dark and dreary. I stayed there with my two sons, and for us tv was important at night because we wanted to watch the Olympics, but the tv which had maybe […] 5 viable stations and was made circa 1990 had no sound on NBC which of course was airing the Olympics. If you are in Taos to ski and enjoy some good food and drink in town and just want to crash at the end of the night then this may be a good spot for you because the location is just a couple of blocks from the Plaza and some good eats, but if you want a nice room with wifi, and other nice amenities I would not reccomend Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice but old hotel"
This is a nice hotel with old world character, it is well located near plaza, walking distance in good weather. The hotel is getting long in the tooth and could use major remodel. It's need of remodel is major reason for my lower score. It is clean and the staff were nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"NEVER stop here"
This was the dirtiest hotel we have ever encountered! Was checking in an hour past check in time , had to wait while they found a room that was "ready" and then the room was filthy , smelled horrible and a cat ran thru the door as we entered. OMG!! we turned right around and went back to the desk clerk and demanded a full refund .Genuine Expedia guest review
