We've stayed in Taos many times over the years but have never stayed here as they are always booked. We were fortunate to get in for a one night stay. We had the Santiago room which is spacious, jetted tub, windows facing the mountains. Very quiet and has evaporative cooling as well as a corner fire place. Would highly recommend...

Ten stars!! The most unique place we have ever stayed. The entire building is a huge art gallery. Attention to detail is everywhere. Paco is a great guy & has worked so hard to create a great inn. We had the unique experience of getting to know Paco's father, Carlos, who entertained at breakfast with wonderful stories & was outside...

Stayed three nights in the Yellow Bird Deer Room. Nice seamless experience. Clean rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Saw Paco, the owner, once for half a second. The place you're staying has a wonderful history. Right off the Taos plaza. A little tricky space-wise for stowing away luggage. This was my very first BnB vacation (ie staying only in BnBs), so...

Staying at La Dona Luz really enhanced our Taos experience. This is now our favorite B&B in New Mexico. It's very homey and warm, and really helps you feel the history and culture. The location is great-- easily walkable to everything downtown, with easy off-street parking. Paco, the owner, is a really nice, friendly guy-- he makes you feel instantly...

You can feel the passion and creativity of Paco-the owner- for his property. We originally booked 4 nigts and ended staying 6! Although we had to move a few times from room (since we kept extending) it was actually a great experience, as it got better and better. We spent two nights in the Red Willow suite-very cozy and picturesque!...

We stayed in the Yellow Bird Suite. Loved being able to walk to the plaza and to restaurants. Breakfast was continental - the servers were very friendly. I really enjoyed having the private living area as well. For the price, this was a great option for two nights.

My friend and I stayed at this Inn during a "girlfriends" trip to New Mexico. The owner, Paco Castillo, was very welcoming as he checked us in. We were in the Los Angelitos Suite, which had a comfortable bedroom and a sunny sitting room with a trundle bed. Despite being a block away from a busy street, it was very...
