Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn Taos
Zimmer in Ordnung, Frühstück nichts Besonderes
Dies war unser zweiter Aufenthalt innerhalb von acht Monaten. Ich bin ein großer Fan der Hampton Inn Kette, allerdings nur von Hotels, die eigens für die Kette gebaut wurden. Das Zimmer war sauber und die Internetverbindung war kostenlos und hat reibungslos funktioniert. Das Hampton Inn Frühstück war wirklich nichts Besonderes und wenig zufriedenstellend. Alles scheint aufgewärmte Tiefkühlkost zu sein, sparen Sie also ihre Zeit und gehen Sie lieber zu Michales Kitchen. Für New Mexico und besonders für Taos ist das Hotel immer noch ein ziemlich guter Deal.
A bit less than expected from a Hilton brand
This property was suffering from neglect unlike most Hampton inns. Hampton nationwide has a well earned reputation for standards and high quality.
The tub would not drain in our room. The box springs were so worn that someone had cut the pillow tops off of them leaving the fringe exposed when the covers were pulled back. The room was in a state of disrepair that is almost never experienced with Hamptons. The 100% satisfaction guarantee resulted in our rooms being free, but this should not have happened. The whole place looked worn.
Staff was nice. Room was clean. Breakfast was good...but there were not enough tables for everyone to eat. We had to eat in lobby one morning. Staff was helpful and friendly. Location is not close to the plaza. Lots of traffic. Nice restaurant next door called Tequilas. Good view of mountains from the pool and parking lot.
MAIN complaint was that the heated pool was VERY COLD. WE avoided another hotel in town because someone said their pool was cold. AND then we had a cold on too.
Clean and dependable. Get to breakfast early!
My wife and I stayed at the Hampton Inn for three nights over Memorial Day. We were very pleased with the facility. The rooms were large and clean and quiet! Ask for room 231 - it's a corner unit on the top floor, and you'll only have one neighbor. We received an AARP rate of $89 per night, which was very reasonable considering the overall quality of the hotel and the room. Our only disappointment was the continental breakfast. Unless you arrive very early, there won't be any fruit left.
The hotel is approximately 2-1/2 miles from the Taos historic area, and it's an easy ride down the main street to reach the town square. We'd strongly recommend visiting Taos Pueblo and the bridge over the Rio Grande Gorge. Both sites were unique and memorable. If you don't mind spending a bit for dinner, we'd also recommend the Stakeout Grill and Bar, which is approximately eight miles south of town. It has outdoor seating with fabulous views and excellent food. For dessert, we had the best pecan pie ever! North of town, Orlando's serves very good Mexican food in a unique setting (beware - they don't take credit cards, but they will take your out-of-town check).
Filthy loggy & restroom
Walked into the lobby to use the restroom prior to cheking in. Lobby was well worn and looking dated. Restroom was VERY dirty. Cancelled my reservation and went elsewhere!
I stayed 1 night at the hotel and was fully satisfied. Room was clean and quiet. Pool and whirlpool are in a separate building steps away from the main building. Free breakfast was tasty and had a good variety of items. The property is located on the main road into Taos, where all the hotels are located. It is a little further from the Taos plaza and pueblo than most of the hotels on the main road. On the other hand, it is very close to Rancho de Taos and the famous church there.
Good Service and Clean Facility
Very nice hotel, with polite and informative staff. Liked having the bill receipt slipped under the door so we could leave early and not have to check out. Nice continental breakfast with a little different selection (e.g. hot bisquits and gravy; sausage) as well as the usual.
Very easy stay
Very clean hotel with staff that is considerate. The breakfast is well managed and seems to be something that someone cares about. Most of the hotel staff struck me as caring. I really think it is a good place to stay.
Fairly new Hampton managed pretty well...
Clean, well maintained, on the main drag at the south end of town, a bit of a drive to the plaza but worth it for a modern hotel. The staff is a little snotty and none of the housekeeping staff or supervisors spoke English but that's not unusual anywhere else these days. Good hot breakfast with cold cereals and top notch cheese danish. I could forgive them for being out of orange juice one morning, but not two in a row. Can't someone go get a couple of gallons of Minute Maid from the grocery store? Otherwise, one of the better Hamptons of the 3 I've stayed at in the last year.
Thought the Hampton was good.
Check-in was quick and painless as I had a reservation. The room was nice and clean. The continental breakfast was good and included some hot food such as french toast and waffles.

We wisely split a burrito plate after seeing the enormous servings coming from the kitchen. It was a smart decision because the "kick" we were seeking just didn't deliver.

Exhibit included some photos of the devastation. Nasty pieces of work (unhappy face here). ...
