This place is a lovely, cozy and well kept Inn right down the street from the main square! It is also a quick walking distance to Our Lady of Guadalupe Church. It was a special Mother/Daughter trip and we thoroughly enjoyed the pretty room, the quiet, and the beautiful dining room and homemade breakfast with homemade granola! Tea in the...

The Inn has a lot of Taos charm, but avoid 'the Trapper' room. There is one chair and no desk. You have to sit on the bed to read or anything else...use your laptop, etc. The room is very close to Kit Carson (one of two busy streets in Taos) which has road noise much of the day/evening. The gravel...

We definitely highly recommend Casa Benavides for couples or individuals. It *may* not be great for kids due to semi breakable furnishings, but it would depend on the family. Rooms are nicely appointed in southwestern decor. Afternoon tea involves numerous very good pastries and tea. Breakfast consisted of gourmet granola, peaches, yogurt, tea, juice, and/or coffee, and your choice of...

My traveling companion and I chose this B and B to stay because it was close to the plaza and had a room available at a decent price. We had a lovely room with parking close by. Our breakfast next morning was very good, and they were very careful about working with my allergies. The only problem was that there...

We had a lovely stay at Casa Benavides. Here are the highlights of what to expect. Pros: Comfortable, clean rooms with signature New Mexico style, convenient location within a short walking distance of the plaza and other points of interest, friendly staff that is willing to help in every way to make your stay enjoyable and a fully served breakfast...

My MIL booked this inn for us to stay two nights on our way to another destination. We saw other positive reviews, so we were hopeful. The property is very quaint w southwest charm, but our room (Victorian Oak) is extremely out of place. Nothing pueblo style at all about it. In all fairness, they have pics on the website....

Have stayed there regularly for two-thee days for the last three years. The inn has the charm and style of ol' Castillo, with a hearty breakfast served by angelic servers. Each room has very unique style.

Had a 3-night reservation, but thanks to American Airlines I didn't make it in the first night. Without me even asking, Casa Benavides credited me back for that night. I can't tell you how much I appreciate that courtesy. Because of that missed flight, a full day of hiking, and a very early departure the 3rd day, I unfortunately never...

Charming little B&B just a block away from the town square. Decorated like a museum, breakfast superb (and way too much to eat!), and extremely friendly service. Our room had its own courtyard (with hot tub) attached. Highly recommended.

This inn feels like a bed and breakfast with personal attention from the staff. There is a delicious breakfast and afternoon tea served with home baked goodies. Each room is unique but ours was very beautiful traditional New Mexican. The La Chiripada winery tasting room is nearby. We enjoyed a bottle of wine on the relaxing patio.
