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.
