Travel Blogs from Taos
From Albuquerque we started heading north to Taos, but wait... we have an important stop along the way....the Bandelier National Monument. (The Americans pronounce it Bandeleer, we Canadians would naturally default to the French pronunciation.) If you want to delve into the history of how people used to live, this is a great place to do it! It was …
... 1903. I know I said it was an artist's mecca already, but that's almost an understatement. The area is so beautiful and inspiring to artists of all types (painters, sculptures, jewellers, potters, photographers etc etc) that it seems to only take one visit before the decision is made to move here. That's what happened to Paco's grandfather. And his artistic talent has not skipped a generation. Paco's ...
... catch ups, which include our hosts as well as all the guests, we all seem to get in there at the same time so it's a great way to start the day. This morning I met a lovely lady from Calgary who was also travelling on her own so we spent the day together today touring Taos finishing up with a delicious dinner and glass of vino. We thought about tossing a coin to see who'd do the driving but as there was a slight possibility of me forgetting ...

Whilst there I heard a couple of friends calling out to each other below, one yelled to the other "hey Pablo don't forget the tacos", what more can I say :) One of the museums I saw today was Kit Carson's house. He was an explorer and mountain man that arrived in the area in the mid 1820s. During his life time he was a fur trapper, an Indian Agent and an Army officer. His first two wives were Indian (the first Arapahoe, the second Cheyenne), ...

I found one place too irresistible not to stop and take a photo and that was a place called Abiquiu Dam. In the middle of all this desert with nothing but rock around the sight of a large body of water makes you pull the car over. I've also popped in a pic of Lake Powell that I took yesterday ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sagebrush Inn Taos
Dark & Dreary
My husband and I usually find our hotels by the diamond ratings from the AAA Tour Book. The Sagebrush Inn had a three diamond rating. We booked the evening. Yes, the room was nicely decorated but it was very dark and depressing in there. Even turning on the lights it was dark. I always check the bedding and the toliets before staying in a hotel to see if they are clean. There was hair on the sheets and on the toilet and in the bathtub. We got our stuff together and cancelled our plan to stay there. We will never go there again. We found something much better a few miles away. There was no apology, the innkeeper just asked if we wanted another room. We left!
Free cooked-to-order breakfast!
We stayed at the Sagebrush for the 1st time just two weeks ago. It was a delight. With two of our children in tow this trip, we opted for just a simple room with 2 double beds. The room was charming and everything you could want in a southwestern motel. The courtyard and patio were lovely, and the dining room served a wonderful dinner. And let's not forget the cooked-to-order breakfast that was included with our room. We have paid $25 for meals not half as good. It was the best breakfast of the trip; no more "continental" for us. We can't wait to go back.
Sagebrush is great
The Sagebrush Inn is very charming. I recomend the two-bedroom suite for a family. There is a great courtyard and restaraunt -- great breakfast! The staff is very friendly, as well.
Last remodeled in the 70s
This place needs remodeling. First of all, there are no couches in the rooms. The explanation by the hotel staff was that they were dirty, so they threw them away. In lieu of a couch were hard wooden chairs. The bathrooms obviously were last remodeled in the 1970s. The baseboards (vinyl) had fallen down, so instead of putting them back on properly, they were nailed on. Then all the nails rusted. The hot tub area (indoors) needed many repairs. The location of the hotel is on a motel row and not centrally located. I found it overpriced. The pool is an outdoor pool and not turned on in the winter.
A King@ Sagebrush
I just spend 4 days at Sagebrush with a group of about 300 people, and i was treated like a king. So if you want the best treatment for this area, stay there, you wont regret it.
Loved the Sagebrush
We have stayed at the Sagebrush Inn several times over the years and have always had a very good experience. We like the fireplace rooms in the old section best as the old adobe has a charm of its own, though we have stayed in the newer deluxe rooms, we still like the old part better. We think the free breakfast is terrific and the live music and dancing in the Cantina at night was just incredible fun.We highly recommend this place. Its not an average hotel, and I can see that if someone is more comfortable in a generic holiday inn type, they might not be impressed with the Sagebrush Inn, but for our money, the ambience of the old adobe, the friendliness of the staff and the good food and fun, we will always come back again and again.
Couldn't Be Happier
Our room was clean, quiet, romantic (we had the suite with the fireplace), and PET FRIENDLY! The staff was courteous and took good care of our special requests. The breakfast was really great. The lobby was a warm, cozy place to relax and visit. This is a must stay in Taos (and believe me, we checked out the others).
This used to be a great place, but is in need of some revamping. Our room didn't "feel" clean--outdated worn carpet, worn out stairs and decking, hottub not functional, etc. Would not recommend--will not stay here again.
Needs an update!
While the Sagebrush Inn may appear to be a charming, adobe hotel full of character, we thought the rooms were terribly outdated. We had a suite, with a fireplace, and a nice view of the mountains. However, the room was so dark and musty that we barely wanted to spend any time in there. The carpet and decor are old and outdated. Overall, the room is strictly average for its price.
The redeeming feature of this hotel, however, is the chef and the hospitality of the staff. The staff went to great lengths to ensure the guests started the day with a delicious and hearty meal. The main lodge is also a nice place to sit and hang out (much less depressing than staying in the room).
Beautiful Adobe, friendly staff!
The Sagebrush Inn has been a beautiful adobe destination for longer than I can remember. There are many different kinds of rooms to stay in, including suites. I think all of them have wood burning kiva fireplaces that really make a cold winter night more enjoyable. The rooms do not look like every other hotel room you have ever stayed in, like most places. It is unique and beautiful from the courtyards, to the pool, the hottubs, the beautiful adobe buildings, and breakfast the next morning in the Gorman Room. I have never had a better breakfast at a hotel and I highly recommend you make time for it. It is free, after all! Definitely make The Sagebrush a destination to stay in Taos. The prices are worth the experience you will have!
