“Don't Be Discouraged by the Outside”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2011

DO NOT get the two queen rooms in the building that faces the parking lot (unless they have been remodeled at some point - ask to look at them first). But DO get the King rooms that face the courtyard. Nothing fancy - but clean and quaint - and pet friendly. Almost seems like two different hotels between the one building and the other. Front desk staff is friendly and very helpful (especially Carrie!). A decent stay for the price.

Room Tip: Definitely get the building with all King rooms - Queen rooms building in desperate need of remodeli...

I read the reviews and decided to stop here. My husband and I looked at each other in the parking lot and I told him we should probably look elsewhere. He suggested we at least look at a room based on the reviews. I went to the front desk and asked to see a room. It was wonderful! The room was clean, quaint, with a very comfortable bed. We loved the courtyard area overlooking the adobe fire pit, animals in the distance, picnic area and overhanging trees. We didn't expect the free continental breakfast which was so well done. It was such a lovely area and we had a wonderful stay.

We loved our stay at the Indian Hills Inn. The staff was very helpful with all of our needs and we appreciated the nice lodging. The salt water pool was a bit chilly yet much more refreshing than chlorinated water. The green space/courtyard was nice to sit and relax enjoying the clear blue sky.

I read most of the reviews and found the rollaway bed quite comical. My initial thought process there was that anyone would have a hard time accommodating those folks.

Rooms are clean enough, nothing spectacular.
Requested non smoking room and it had a faint smell of smoke. Management gave me a new room to my satisfaction. Believe it or not, smokers like the non
smoking rooms too.

The breakfast was just that, continental breakfast. It seems some folks were expecting Gordon Ramsey bedside with eggs benedict.
I've stayed in many of hotels and seen a far worst breakfast than this.

Location is impeccable.

Allows me to stay here with my dog and has a decent courtyard to boot. In the "Land Of Broken Glass" it's nice to have a clean place to let my dog walk around.

Management seems to go out of their way to accommodate the guest.

The fatal flaw regarding this establiment is the paper thin Walls. Obviously this can be a nuisance to anyone especially if your neighbors are rowdy or getting it on. Also, the windows lack a screen which makes no logical sense.

WIFI is mediocre at best. The better your wireless device is the further you can be from the access point.

The bottom line is that if I need a place to stay for $80.00 I stay here. If I have 200.00 to blow on a room I don't.

This was a decent hotel to stay at, but the price was a litlle high. The price is most likely due to its location. The location is a couple of blocks from the main plaza making it easy to get around. If ever in Taos again I would entertain the idea of staying again.

Stayed one night after going thru Expedia for a reservation. Expedia rated this as a two star but I think it was a three star. Front desk man was very friendly and very helpful. He recommended a very good mexican eatery that was very good. Wait person was Jeremy and he was wonderful. Rooms were fine. alittle outdated, could be modernized but overall stay was good.
