We just returned from a great stay at the La Posada de Taos B&B ! We are from the Dallas area and were fortunate to have won a 3 night stay at a charity event, which I sit on their board. So, first, thanks to Sandy the owner for her generous support of non profits and their events....and she will be happy to know that the wining bid was not a small sum, so the charity greatly appreciated it ! First let me say that if you are acustom to the Four Seasons and a certain drive up appeal, this is not the place. As a matter of fact, you may wonder as you make your way to the property which is tucked back in a neigborhood next to a school, if you made the wrong turn...but you are in Taos, not Denver or Dallas. I suspect that people come to Taos....to get away from the big city glitz and glamor of chain or fancy hotels. This B&B was perfect in many ways mentioned in other reviews, like a short walk to the Plaza/shopping. I concur with all the great comments about the (new) inkeepers, they did a spectacular job and made us feel "at home". The morning breakfast was excellent and chatting with the others visiting is fun if you have never experienced a B&B, though I suspect you are considering this B&B because you have and enjoy the more quaint atmosphere. We stayed in La Casa, because we reserved early and it is a detached structure with your own private entrance and parking slot next to it. Keep in mind folks, this is a B&B and while spacious for 2, with a separate bedroom, living room and bathroom, you will not find the wet bar, massive flat panel, etc....but that is what makes it unique and enjoyable. The room was well appointed with what you might expect, bathrobes, coffee maker, etc. The hot tub was a nice touch but it seemed to just "start" up at 5:30pm every day with no water in the tub..... Maybe haunted?....wait, that is La Posada de Santa Fe, never mind. I won't get into all the things to do around Taos, but regardless of your reason for a visit, consider this B&B, you won't regret it (unless as previously mentioned, you are looking for the valet to park your car, and the bartender in the lobby for a late night drink)!

Thanks to our google map program we went right to the hacienda. Our room was nice with a kiva fireplace and the bathroom was funky and darling. The towels were first rate and so were the soaps. Best of all was the breakfast and the other guests who were really interesting and fun. We''ll be back.

We spent two nights at La Posada. Karen and Sharon were wonderful hostesses. They went so far as to help us with dinner reservations. The breakfasts were amazing. We will definitely recommend the La Posada to our friends.

We stayed here for three nights this summer, and our entire time was outstanding! The staff was very friendly and helpful in every endeavor. Every morning we were treated to a superb breakfast with delicious fresh fruit and a southwest main dish, all of which were expertly prepared and very tasty. We stayed in the El Solecito room, and our accommodations were spacious, comfortable and peacefully quiet. This is an exceptional B&B and we would highly recommend staying here to anyone who visits the Taos area. Located very conveniently to old-town Taos and a short drive to many local attractions. We can't wait to come back!
Great place with a historical feel. Inn keepers do it right and rooms are exactly what you expect--not the Four Seasons but historical and with a great feel. A super place for reasonable folks who come to Taos because it is not Santa Fe. Great breakfast and good common areas. Will stay here again when in Taos.
"Charming B & B in a Great Location in Taos"
08/01/14 Bear59 Norwich, Vermont
I stayed here earlier in the week on my last night in New Mexico and absolutely loved my room, El Solecito, just off the main living room. The King-size bed was so comfortable! I also loved that the room had its own traditional adobe fireplace and sitting area. It was beautifully decorated with Native American crafts and local paintings, and with charming touches, such as a rustic ladder in the living room section to hold a handwoven rug and in the bathroom to hold towels. I also loved that El Solecito had its own private patio. Breakfast was a communal affair and hearty. A cooked entree, juice, coffee or tea, granola, yogurt, fresh fruit, and a baked good were more than enough to satisfy and fortify one for sightseeing or hiking until a late lunch. Mine hosts were more than obliging and generous. With a walled, courtyard garden and hardy, drought-resistant flowers, cacti, and flowering trees, this lovely, historic, pueblo-style home was a peaceful oasis within walking distance of the Taos Plaza. The B & B, itself, was unobtrusive and the perfect place for an overnight stay. I only wish I could have stated longer, and I would certainly recommend La Posada de Taos as a great alternative to a hotel! P.S. If you have the opportunity to stay here, do take time out to speak with Mary, who helped me with my luggage. A lovely person, she knew the Santa Clara potters, whose work I collected back in the seventies, as well as their families!
"Well located. Dog Friendly"

My lady & I were on our annual road trip through parts of the USA. This year we elected to go to Taos and to travel with our canine child, Mrs Jones. Of course, when traveling with one's dog, accommodations can be a challenge in the US (as opposed to most European countries). Thus, we were quite pleased to find La Posada de Taos on TripAdvisor, with so many excellent reviews. I called the inn and spoke directly with Sharon to make the reservation. She suggested the Lino room as this room has direct access from outside, allowing us to bring Mrs Jones in without going through the main house. All seemed reasonable, including the 10% AAA discount, so I went ahead and booked. We arrived at the inn at about 3:45 pm , and check-in hours are only from 4 to 6 pm. Nevertheless, Sharon was kind enough to open the door to let us in. We were the only guests checking in that day but even with that, Sharon didn't seem to remember that we had booked with a dog until I reminded her that was why she put us in the Lino room - not a problem, really, but just seemed odd given we were the only ones arriving.Sharon was also kind enough to provide some restaurant names and also to lend us a hiking guide book for our use during our stay. However, unlike some of the other posts, there was no sign, nor mention, of any welcoming wine and cheese or afternoon cookies; just an introduction to the house, instructions about breakfast (first we knew of a one seating 830 only timing), and a request to not bring the dog into the main house. Breakfast each day was okay. Fresh fruit and yogurt are always welcome. Each breakfast entree was also well presented and reasonably tasty - although the green chile sauce on the huevos rancheros was a little bland. Good but not excellent as many other posts have it. We have certainly had better at other B&Bs in the US. While we enjoy the experience of meeting new people in a B&B - one of the fun reasons to stay in one - we do think a choice of breakfast times would be an added benefit. When one plans on spending on the day hiking in the mountains, an 830 breakfast makes for a late start to the day - maybe a 730 seating also? Rochelle, who cooked and served breakfast on two of our three mornings there, was very friendly and made some excellent restaurant recommendations. Other posts also mention a newspaper available in the mornings...not sure whether this "feature" has been discontinued but we certainly didn't see, nor were we offered, a paper. The Lino room was adequate but very small. The bed was oddly placed in the corner of the room and there was nowhere comfortable to sit in the room - just an old, hard "period" couch. The bathroom was old, shower only, and could use some updating. Also the water system was a little "hit and miss" with temperature fluctuating wildly if someone else in the building was using water. I realise the inn is an older building but modern, temperature balancing, fixtures could still be discreetly installed. On the second day of our stay towels that had been placed on the floor for replacement were simply rehung and not replaced. We knew this as they were still damp from the morning use. We went in search of our own and managed to find some clean replacements. I find it odd that this happened - at the prices charged, clean towels should not be deemed a luxury. Perhaps this was their towel reuse policy but usually towels on floor means please replace, not "at your discretion". The Lino room also has a small courtyard attached, perfect fro the dog. The courtyard has a table and two chairs - a nice touch for sitting outside in the evening. Unfortunately the chairs are metal, with no cushions provided and thus not conducive to relaxing in the evening. On the last morning of our stay, breakfast took a bit of a bizarre twist. When we arrived in the dining room, the table was set for twelve people - a sign, I thought of a full house. Sure enough there were four other guests at the table, two of whom we had met the day before and quite enjoyed talking to. We were getting seated when suddenly three other people - one adult and two children showed up. Fair enough, I thought, more guests, But no, it turns out this was the daughter and grand-children of one of the innkeepers. Then five minutes or so later, two more of their family showed up. Now, we hadn't seen either Sharon or Karen for more than a few minutes on the other days of our stay but this morning they ere suddenly there serving breakfast to all. We felt oddly as though we had "crashed" or intruded on a Sharon/Karen family breakfast - not what one expects in a B&B. To top it off, Sharon then started taking pictures of everyone at the table, without asking permission! It would have been churlish to object at that point and, to be honest, I was too surprised to do so. I have since asked them to delete the pictures but have had no response so far. I know Sharon & Karen are fairly new as the innkeepers here but I would have expected a little more professionalism. So, in summary: an ok place, to which we could take our dog. A good location for walking into the plaza. Reasonable breakfasts. So so room furnishings. Hit & miss on amenities offered. Not professional at last morning breakfast. We will most likely return to Taos but unlikely we shall stay here again.
"Thanks for a wonderful stay"
07/22/14 Jill W Albuquerque, New Mexico
La Posada's owner, Sandy, very generously donated 2 rooms to the local Lions Club so that our band, 35 Degrees North, would have a place to stay when we came to play for the Taos Lions Club's Taste of Taos fundraiser. What a treat to stay in this B and B! The rooms are quite comfortable and beautifully decorated in true Taos style. The inn itself is beautiful, with plenty of areas to relax both inside and out, The innkeepers, Karen and Sharon, are gracious hosts and their breakfasts are delicious! La Posada is tucked away in a quiet corner of Taos but is within easy walking distance of the main Taos plaza with its many restaurants and shops. Thanks for the wonderful stay, Sandy!
"Once again a most wonderful, experience, absolutey delightful!"

Taos is one of our favorite destinations and we have had some great places to stay. However we have now found our new "home" when we visit. We stayed last year and opted to try it again. It exceeded our expectations and simply could not have been nicer. The La Posada de Taos is in an ideal location close to anything and everything you want to do in Taos. Walking distance to shops, galleries and restaurants. The Inn is quiet, spotless, warm, friendly and comfortable with safe parking. The Innkeepers are so welcoming and go out of their way to make you feel at home. We stayed in the Monterrey room which was private and quiet with a lovely back patio. The Inn is perfect for a romantic weekend getaway or an ideal place to rest and relax after an exciting day of hiking and traveling. We can't wait to return.
"Excellent in every way"

We had a family reunion from July 18-20 at the La Posada de Taos. New innkeepers Karen and Sharon were gracious and helpful hosts. The La Posada is an old home and each room is reflective of the Spanish past and influence in Taos. Rooms are tasteful and comfortable and roomy. Coffee is available at 7am and a wonderfully hearty breakfast is served at 8:30am to all guests together. A great opportunity to meet and get acquainted with very nice people. La Posada is conveniently a block and a half from the Plaza, saving the trouble of finding somewhere to park for many of the activities you go to Taos to experience. It was delightful and we highly recommend it to someone who wants a relaxing and very comfortable visit to Taos.
