Where to stay in Taos

Taos offers a wealth of accommodations right in town and in the surrounding area. Plenty of small inns, bed and breakfasts, and hotels lie in and around the business district, but your options greatly expand when you consider renting a small house or an apartment. Where you stay depends on what you come for. If you want to use Taos as a base for seeing local sites, opt for accommodation within the city limits. If you plan to spend most of your time in the mountains, the Valdez and Arroyo Seco areas are convenient. Staying between these areas and downtown puts you close to the Taos Pueblo Indian Lands.

  • Total surprise via Trail Forks. The Taos overlook trail system. Fun trail with awesome views of Rio Grande Gorge. Rolling fun 12 mile up and down jaunt through Juniper, Pinion and sage.
  • Gorgeous gorge! A few miles out of Taos but worth the hour to meander over the bridge and admire the gorge.
  • Stunning views. The bighorn sheep herd in the rest area was a bonus. Restrooms were closed and locked with sign explaining why.
  • Clean air and water great views free of man made structures. Amazing rafting. Great fishing at the end of the summer.
  • Great views. However, the street vendors were taking up a lot of the parking. The parking lot was in bad shape.
