Taos Inn

Review of the Historic Taos Inn The Historic Taos Inn is a step back into the history of Taos. The Inn has been placed on the National and State Registers of Historic Places, and the sloping floors and sloping ceilings are a great indication that this accommodation has plenty of character! With adobe and Spanish architecture, furnishings and antiques, the look and feel of the hotel is still rich in history.

Formerly the Hotel Martin owned by Doc Martin, the inn is made up of several adobe houses from the 1800s that were surrounded by a small plaza that contained the community well. The plaza is now part of the bar, so instead of gathering for water the town folk now congregate for an alcoholic beverage. The vibrant bar is the social hub of town and it attracts artistic locals and visitors alike who appreciate how special the inn is.

Where is the Taos Inn Located? The Taos Inn is located in town of Taos in New Mexico at 125 Paseo del Pueblo Norte. It’s situated in the main street in the centre of the historic district, just a stone’s throw away from the plaza. Even though there’s a fabulous restaurant and bar at the hotel, it’s also well located with easy access to other dining and drinking options, as well as shops and galleries.

Hotel Rooms All of the 44 rooms are very different but they have the same south western flavour. Bedding configurations in each room are either twin beds or a double, queen or king bed. Many of the rooms are situated in quiet locations, ideal for a peaceful low-altitude sleep, whilst a few rooms are located in the main building above the bar. With live music playing until 10pm these rooms are only suited to music lovers.

We stayed in a delightful room off the courtyard that had a super comfortable king bed, shuttered windows, Pueblo décor and a low wooden ceiling. The little adobe fireplace was a highlight of the room, and with wood supplied and amazing firelighters, it was gorgeous to light the fire in the evenings. Don’t fear though, there’s also a modern heating system to keep you toasty. The modern conveniences extend to a contemporary bathroom.

Prices per room at the Taos Inn range from $75-$275 per night.

Restaurant and Bar Doc Martin’s restaurant is probably the best dining facility in town, and it’s right there on your door step. The food is exquisite, the wine list award winning, and the décor interesting and cosy.

For dinner the menu consists of southwestern cuisine that is incredibly varied including trout, steak, grilled buffalo, elk burgers and other tasty treats. One of the appetizers we tried was grilled rattlesnake and rabbit sausage adorned with a chili and dried cherry sauce. It was delicious once we got past the thought of what we were eating! One of their specialities is Doc’s Chili Relleno Platter: two fried Anaheim chilis coated with pumpkin seeds, filled with goats cheese cream and accompanied by salsa fresco, rice and beans. It was incredibly yummy, albeit a little naughty. The naughtiness really starts with the gorgeous desserts. It’s definitely worth saving a little room for dessert considering there are delicious treats to die for.

Breakfasts at Doc Martin’s are also scrummy. There are a range of cooked breakfasts with too many nice things to choose from, including great versions of French toast and huevos rancheros.

The Adobe Bar at the hotel is really cosy and it attracts a colourful and friendly crowd. Go for a drink and enjoy the varied live music, or sit in the back for a bar meal which is mainly Mexican food. Take care with Annabell’s green chili (or chilli if you’re from the UK or Australia) – it knocks your socks off!

Why Stay at the Taos Inn? If you don’t want to brave the cold outside in the evenings, you don’t have to. The best bar and restaurant is located right at the hotel. The Taos Inn is well priced and an opportunity to immerse yourself in the history and culture of Taos. Most of the people that stay at the Taos Inn are repeat customers because they love it so much, and it’s easy to see why.
