Positive Reviews

Excellent central location

La Fonda de Taos is situated right in the very heart of the town's historical district. Guests loved the atmosphere created by the historic buildings, art galleries and other amenities in the surrounding streets, but also found that it made for a decent base when visiting the surrounding ski slopes.

In-room fireplaces

It seems that most of the rooms have built in gas fireplaces that guests traveling in the cooler months really appreciated. They seemed to not only generate physical warmth, but also created a romantic and cozy atmosphere as well.

Lovely historic atmosphere

There has been an inn on the site since 1820. The current buildings are themselves quite old and very much pay tribute to times past. Guests seemed to really like the old-time atmosphere, and had the sense that they were stepping back into the frontier period.

Negative Reviews

No restaurant or bar on-site

This was far and away what most disappointed guests when it came to La Fonda. There is neither a restaurant nor bar on-site, only a basic facility providing hot drinks. Guests really missed being able to have breakfast at their hotel, as well as a nightcap or odd drink with friends at their hotel bar.

Extra fee for parking

This seemed to upset a number of guests, who objected to having to pay extra to park when they already considered their room-rate to be too high. They felt they were being nickel and dimed.

Hotel may be haunted

While not an entirely serious complaint, more than one guest mentioned that the hotel had a long-held reputation for being haunted, resulting in some ‘interesting' nights involving a creaking here or faint whistle there. Or was it something else?
