Booking a reservation authorizes us to charge your Visa or MasterCard and serves as a virtual signature. Booking your reservation allows you to enter your card information which is charged automatically because of Credit Card Compliance Rules. If you are not booking online, we reserve the right to cancel your reservation if you do not provide us with credit card information in a timely fashion (within 48 hours of booking).
Call us and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. 575-758-0192, or text 575-770-3246. We can usually fit in odd nights, but this must be done manually. We have a two night minimum stay [(three nights during Thanksgiving (Nov 23 to 25th) and Christmas (Dec 23 to 26) holiday)] unless filling a slot, any one night booking must be confirmed by telephone, and we reserve the right to move you to a comparable room or to upgrade you at no additional charge should the need arise. One night stays do not appear on on-line calendar and are charged the regular room rate, no discounts apply.
ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE TIMES
Arrival time: Generally, Check-in is from 3-5 PM. Early arrivals OK - call to see if room is ready. Late arrivals are no problem. Special instructions sent to you allow you to arrive at your leisure.
Check-Out: 11 AM. We will charge an additional night fee if you have not departed by 12 noon.
DEPOSIT AND CANCELLATION POLICY (INDIVIDUALS)
Because of credit card Compliance Rules, the full amount of booking is charged in one transaction. You must cancel your reservation 15 days prior to arrival, for a refund minus cancellation fee of $75 or 15% of total deposit - whichever is higher; otherwise you will forfeit the entire deposit and will receive no refund of any kind if you cancel. 100% non-refundable of a one night stay is required when you book. If you book on the same day that you arrive then 100% of the balance is due at the time of booking and is non-refundable. You are responsible for payment of all nights reserved regardless of the actual arrival or departure date so if you leave a day early or arrive a day late you are responsible for full payment and will be charged. If you give us a card number that is declined for any reason, we must charge 4% for each submission to the processor because they charge us a fee for every submission whether declined, canceled or approved. In some cases, if there is a proven medical emergency or valid weather hindrance, we will, at our discretion, issue a voucher for a future visit - not transferable and not valid for holiday even if original was for holiday. Examine your confirmation closely and purchase trip insurance if needed.
DEPOSIT AND CANCELLATION POLICY (GROUPS, WEDDINGS, AND WORKSHOPS)
One half of the amount due is charged upon booking as a deposit and is non-refundable. The other half is due 60 days prior to arrival. If you cancel your reservation you will forfeit the entire deposit and will receive no refund of any kind; in some cases, deposit may be transferable, but is not refundable. If special arrangements are made, balance may be delayed to within thirty days of arrival; however, you are financially responsible for your entire confirmed stay and will be charged for nights reserved but not used. Examine your confirmation closely and purchase trip insurance if needed.
Rates are subject to change without notice. All reserved rates are honored according to the rate and date on which they were booked. In some cases, for group workshops, a package is put together with uniform lodging rates charged to participants which does not reflect the size or amenities of the room. Please do not complain to us that your room is not as nice as another person's room who paid the same price as you did, as all rooms are unique and we are offering a package deal to your workshop presenter with much lower lodging rates than regular rates. If you cancel, you do not get your money back - your room was taken off the market so that you have the opportunity to enjoy being here - use it, or loose it.
If the room is damaged in any way from your stay then you are responsible for all fees associated with the repair. Pet damage or smoking damage is an automatic $250 fee.
The Inn is open year-round.
We have two rooms which can accommodate small children, please call. Our EID ruling states that we cannot take children under the age of 12 without specifically informing parents of need for close supervision because of the proximity of the river. There is a river on the edge of our property and children must be supervised at all times.
Non-smoking: We are a non-smoking inn. Smokers willing to smoke outside, away from balconies and rooms are welcome!
Pets: To maintain high housekeeping standards, we have a very restrictive policy toward pets. We do add a $50 non-refundable pet deposit for each pet. If your pet does not meet our specifications, we can refer you to a nearby veterinary clinic that boards visiting pets.
Packing: Be sure to bring things so that you can dress in layers. It does get chilly when the sun goes down even in the summer. In the winter consider packing wool socks instead of bulky winter boots, and silk long-johns are a must for your comfort, male or female. Remember, the air is dry so bring your favorite lotion too!
Information: We are happy to provide information on local facilities and events: Restaurants, Shops, Museums, Indian Pueblos and their Dances, Music and Art Festivals, Winter Skiing and Summer Hiking and Rafting. We have compiled maps and guides to help you plan your days. Please visit our facebook page too.
We look forward to your visit, aqui en Taos!
