My husband made reservations for the best room at the inn for the day after Valentines Day, but really just wanted to get away and visit with our friend who lives around the corner from the Inn. Confirmed the day before via phone and asked about the hot tub, found out that it had been broken for some time and the inn keeper blamed the webmaster for having old information on the website...what a cop-out. Inn keeper was also very rude on the phone when we asked about a friend staying with us, but then she ended up being nice about it when we got there. The "La Luna" room has a beautiful balcony and very comfortable bed and a very large tub...but the tub jacuzzi feature was too loud to tolerate. The balcony and the room had small, uncomfortable chairs so the only appealing place to sit is the bed. Too bad, because the view from the balcony is wonderful. There really should at least be cushions on the small iron chairs outside and the room is plenty big enough to have at least one nice, big chair, but there are only two tiny wood chairs that were horrible. The room had no tv or phone, the only electronics was a small clock/radio with cd player. My husband and I did not like the small windows of time we were requested to adhere to for check-in and breakfast (check-in between 4 and 6pm, breakfast between 8:30 and 9:30am.). But we appreciated the split of champagne we were given upon arrival. When I told the inn keeper that I wanted to sleep in late, she moved breakfast to 10 am but acted annoyed about it, and sleeping in was impossible anyway because the expansive east facing windows in our room were covered only by thin white curtains that made the room explode in sunlight at 6:30 in the morning...on a Sunday...on vacation away from our young kids and dogs. Not cool. We also could hear every car on the road, I guess because the glass on the windows is thin or something. The breakfast was tasty, but minimal with no choices offered. Just a bowl of fruit with cream, a piece of quiche (delicious!) and a muffin. My husband requested gluten free food, which they accommodated, but there were no seconds available of the GF food. The coffee was just so-so and the orange juice did not taste fresh. For the price, I think this place was not worth it, but the views are fantastic and the bed was nice.
"I Wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else!"

The Adobe and Stars B&B is top notch! This well-kept establishment is comfortable, quiet, serves delicious breakfasts and has friendly and accommodating staff. We booked the Polaris room as we have on previous stays. The room is large and comfortable and conducive to deep, relaxing sleep. The staff served us a lovely glass of wine the afternoon of our arrival. They allowed us to invite our son for breakfast on both days of our stay (at no cost) and graciously accommodated his dietary needs. I cannot say enough nice things bout this B&B and will always stay here on our trips to the Taos area.
"Unfriendly, over-priced, snobby"

On a long trip this was going to be our "rest" in a nicer-than-a-motel setting. I regret not just staying in a Motel 6. The cook here is the only thing to recommend it. The owner is unfriendly, unconcerned with guests unless they are her personal friends, their doors are weird (seriously, they have weird doors) and nothing about it is comfortable or inviting.
"Very Nice Accommodations"

Adobe and Stars was a very nicely located bed and breakfast outside of the main Taos area. The problem with this place is the owner. If you book a reservation DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT GETTING THERE ANY EARLIER then check in at 4:00 pm. My son and I had the misfortune to do so, mainly because there was an 100 year event rain storm in the region, and we were welcomed by an owner who was very irate that we did NOT adhere to her policy. When we came back after the allotted time she did apologize but continued to be the most negative human. Furthermore, there is NO Cable or any other TV reception in the rooms. We were told that because the advertisement for the bed and breakfast did not specifically say there was no television reception, we should have assumed there was none. She did have a television in the room that you could play movies on. Her negativity continued about the restaurant choices and whatever else you asked her about. My son and I were wondering why this woman was even in the bed and breakfast business! The only saving grace with this place was the wonderful French woman that made and served breakfast. She was the most graceful and delightful person and every breakfast for our three day stay was WONDERFUL.
"Not worth the trouble"

We stayed here, or I should say, started to stay here in early September. The electricity went out and we could not locate the innkeeper. Although I had several hours left on my oxygen, we packed up in the dark and stayed in Taos. Our problem is not that the electricity went out, but that the innkeeper abandoned her responsibility and did not even have an emergency phone number available to her guests.

Beautiful views from our room, La Luna. Bobbi, who served us breakfast, was very nice. Room was clean, bed was comfy, though the owner, Judy, warned us not to buy Pella windows because they were problematic, and that candles only were to be used in the kiva fireplace until after the first snow due to fire risk. Jacuzzi tub with shower head attachment was great, but due to the upstairs location of the room, there is a notice posted stating can only be used between 7 am-11pm. B&B website says there is a hot tub under the stars, but that is apparently a seasonal feature and wasn't in operation for our visit.
"Generally excellent, but some maintenance issues"
08/22/13 canbelto Los Alamos, New Mexico, United States
This B&B is about half way between the town of Taos and the Taos Ski Valley, in the tiny town of Arroyo Seco. We have stayed there on multiple occasions and have always enjoyed it for the beauty of the setting, the friendliness and graciousness of the proprietor, the creative breakfasts, the flower garden that is a veritable magnet for hummingbirds ... and on and on. The only thing that prevents me from giving it a 5-star rating (which I rarely give) is that the place could use some maintenance. The week before our latest stay involved a powerful windstorm that dislodged one or two windows from the room we were originally slated to occupy. There was no problem relocating us to a different room, but that one will require some repairs (difficult as it is on the second floor and some of the repairs must be made from the outside) before it is suitable for use. More of an issue was the fact that the hot tub, a much-appreciated feature from years past, was out of service. This too needs to be repaired for the place to earn the highest possible score. There are occasional bits of peeling paint, etc., as well, but those are cosmetic in nature and shouldn't affect your stay. All told, we loved it, still love it, and will be back, but we hope it will get some effective maintenance before our next visit.
"Great bed and breakfast!"

This bed and breakfast north of Taos, NM is fantastic. The accommodations, food and location are stunning. Each morning one is greeted with a marvelous breakfast overlooking a flower filled patio complete with dueling hummingbirds. The owner is on site and greets you every evening with recommendations for dinner, and cheerful conversation. One couldn't ask for a more restful, beautiful setting.
"Excellent place to rest and renew."
07/01/13 Oleta B Arlington, Texas
We have stayed here many times and have a wonderful time each visit. You will too. The views, scenery, rooms, and food are excellent. The ladies running this B&B are wonderful. It is so close to Taos Sky Valley and hicking, just 5 to 10 minutes to the mountain top.
"Pet Friendly Near Taos"
06/27/13 William G Miami, Florida
We spent two nights at the Adobe & Stars BB during a 28 day road trip throught the Southwest. We picked Adobe & Stars because it is pet friendly. It was the only B&B that we encountered on our trip. What we remember most about this B&B is the owner, manager, and chief cook & bottle washer -Judy Salathiel. Judy - a retired CPA from Houston - is a veritable ball of fire. Our visit commenced with a 15 minute orientation with Judy whose attention to detail continued throughout our stay. An example of the degree of service that she provides involves the Mumford and Sons concert that occurred in Taos during the first evening or our stay. Judy, fearing traffic mayhem, sent us an email advising of a route to Adobe & Stars that would avoid the traffic chaos in downtown Taos. We consider this going above and beyond.... Our room, Orion, was tastefully decorated with Southwestern furnishings and art. The room featured a beamed/log ceiling and a woodburning kiva fireplace (which we did not use due to an extreme fire danger alert). The bed was comfortable. We also had a small patio. We REALLY liked our room. This property features breathtaking mountain views and great sunset opportunities. There is an outdoor hot tub which we did not use. We REALLY liked the views. Judy and her staff were extremely friendly and, as noted, went out of their way to be helpful. The breakfasts were phenominally good. As we were traveling with a Neemo the wonder dog, we ate our breakfasts outside on a veranda with fabulous mountain views. We REALLY enjoyed the breakfasts. What else? Each evening between 5 and 6 pm, a complimentary glass of wine or beer is served. Shiner Bock (a Houston favorite) was recommended. In light of the foregoing we rate Adobe & Stars at the excellent level. We are very happy that we stayed there. Several observations just in case these items matter - We were surprised to find that our room did not have a TV. Although we did not travel to Taos to watch TV, after a day out and about we enjoy unwinding before the TV. But note, there is a TV in the common area and we did not observe any great interest by the other guests in watching it. There is not a traditional hotel ice machine on the property although small quantities of ice were provided in the kitchen/dining area. We are big ice consumers (and did notice this) but for others this is probably not a big deal. Adobe & Stars is located just outside a small town called Arroyo Seco. It is about 9 miles from the town of Taos. If being near the "action " in Taos is a priority (it was not for us), you should keep this in mind. Bill, Linda and Neemo Miami, FL and Arenal, Costa Rica
