History of Taos Inn

The original building dates back to the late 1800s, built for an English land baron, Arthur Manby. He rented a house in the compound to Dr. Thomas Paul Martin and his wife, Helen, later selling it to the couple. When Manby’s decapitated body was found next to the inn in 1926, Dr. Martin took care of the body. The Martin’s purchased the cluster of adobes, naming the complex the Martin Apartments. Dr. Martin opened his office, operating room, and delivery room where the Doc Martin restaurant is currently located. After Dr. Martin passed away in 1933, his widow converted the Martin Apartments to Hotel Martin. At that time, Taos was drawing more attention as an arts colony, attracting numerous celebrities, including Greta Garbo and Anthony Quinn.

Really cute central hotel with a great restaurant and bar. Very quiet rooms with comfy beds. ~ Steve Van Wasshenova

If you stay here, I recommend getting a bungalow out back. They are beautiful rooms and very peaceful. The staff here were all very nice and helpful! ~ Dave Lash

Taos Historic Inn is super charming and really good value given location and quality. We had a corner room way in the back of one of the buildings, and while the beds, bathroom, and amenities were great, the room itself was a little dark. I think that was specific to this room as many others appeared to have large front wall windows, but it’s worth asking about if given the choice of multiple rooms.

Parking is convenient and tucked away so as not to be right on the street. You can walk to literally all of downtown Taos from the hotel, with very few destinations taking more than 10 minutes to walk to. I think when we stay again, we would try to get a second story room just for the light and the views. The newly renovated library/lounge space in the main building was super cozy, and they had decent coffee there ready to go early in the morning. ~ Mark Morrison
