Accommodation for those skiing at Taos Ski Valley is plentiful. Both the village at Taos Ski Valley and the town of Taos have a variety of accommodation options.

At Taos Ski Valley at the base of the ski area there are various hotels, lodges and condo complexes, most of which are conveniently ski-in ski-out. The small European-style village has a quiet nightlife and is generally popular with families and those who want easy access to the slopes.

The town of Taos has a wider range of accommodations and these generally provide better value for money. Other pros of the town are the interesting culture and the variety of restaurants, bars, shops and galleries.

Taos Town Accommodation

The town of Taos has many accommodations for a wide range of budgets. Accommodations include lavish hotels, motels, and B&Bs. Taos is a former Spanish settlement with a significant Native American culture, so many of the buildings have adobe architecture. Apart from the restaurants, shops and galleries, another advantage of staying in town is a better night’s sleep. Insomnia is one of the first symptoms of altitude sickness, and if you’re usually a sea level dweller, you’ll enjoy staying in town and not having to count sheep.

The Historic Taos Inn is right in the centre of town and is an institution of Taos. The hotel has one of the best restaurants in town and a fantastically vibrant bar, and the rooms are charming, many with adobe fireplaces and Indian furnishings. See our review of the Historic Taos Inn for more information.

Accomodations on the Outskirts of Town

On the outskirts of town at the southern end (approximately 3 - 7 minutes drive) there are various very inexpensive chain motels such as Days Inn and Hampton Inn. They offer very inexpensive lodging and generally include a continental breakfast in the nightly rate.

Taos Ski Valley Lodging

The village of Taos Ski Valley has about 12 accommodation complexes within the charming village. Some accommodations such as the Snakedance Condominiums and Hotel St Bernard offer packages that include lift tickets and ski lessons for the week.

The Edelweiss Lodge and Spa is a luxury ski-in ski-out establishment with beautifully appointed condominiums and hotel rooms, and amenities such as ski valet and a day spa.

Other luxurious accommodation can be found at the Bavarian Lodge which features old world hospitality and Bavarian antiques. Accommodations are in guest suites in the main building and three bedroom chalets. The Bavarian Lodge is not located in the Taos Ski Valley village, but at a base area further along the road at lift #4. It is conveniently ski-in ski-out, but this probably isn’t a handy location for novice skiers or those wanting to access kids ski school.

More economical lodgings can be found at the older style ski-in ski-out Kandahar Condominiums located at the top of the main village or the Rio Hondo Condominiums located near the baby slopes and ski school.

On-Mountain Hotels (Not in the Village)

A couple of miles down the road from the base of the ski area, there are several accommodations that are significantly cheaper than those that are ski-in ski-out at the base area. Examples include Austing Haus, a bed and breakfast with standard rooms for 2 persons and the Columbine Inn has rooms with two queen beds. It would be a solid 10-15 min up-hill walk to the lifts from here or a 2 minute drive.

Lodging Between the Resort and Town

Arroyo Seco, a cute little old village, is located 10 miles from the ski area on the road to Taos town. The village has a few restaurants, bars, shops and galleries, and various accommodations.

The Adobe & Stars Bed and Breakfast is a pueblo adobe style inn in a gorgeous setting, whilst the Salsa del Salto is another cute B&B in the area.

Budget accommodation can be found at a hostel, the HI-Taos Abominable Snow Mansion Classic Ski Lodge Inn. 

Between Arroyo Seco and the town of Taos there are also various B&Bs, condos and vacation rentals.
