I was in town for only three days due to a family emergency. My sleeping arrangement was canceled at the last minute, and thankfully the TVL took me in. The gentleman at the front desk Dan helped me check in and was there for breakfast every morning. Nice clean cozy room. Zero co

Hotel was clean, desk people were friendship. Rim service responded when asked.
There was a snow storm, the employees cleaned the snow and kept clear. Lodge was under construction but was never disturbed by noise.
Happy to return again.

Is there any wildlife like bears and cougars living near Taos Valley Lodge in Taos of New Mexico USA? Also how deep is the pool of Taos Valley Lodge in Taos of New Mexico USA?
Never been in the wilderness there. Just sk slopes and in town, pool is shallow. Chest high. Swam laps. Actually headed back there tomorrow.

To Unkown Guest Relations Manager at El Camino Lodge as in your response to my review you didn't mention a name. My name is Jose Gonzales I stayed there at the hotel in January of this year my wife and my self I'm highly upset that you Mr or Ms are questioning the integrity of my review I'm astonished that a manager would pretty much call a guest a liar in nice words to try and deny the allegations against the hotel as far as my motivation it's to warn people of having to deal with what I did and share my experience of the El Camino Lodge I totally understand why you would try to slander my bad review but facts are facts! but there has to be some integrity to guest and Amit wrong doing to paying customer if as in your reply to my review about the "state of the art camera systems" then why was I told by the lady at front desk that cameras weren't working? Was it to cover up the attempted break in of my truck or the suspicious activity in parking lot hince done per one of the staff members? Far as the racism just because there is a wide range of different ethnic and background staff doesn't mean that the Pacific person in this case  ( Latino maintenance man mid late 20s 5"6 - 5"8 medium build) is not racist him self as in my review I explained is actions the comment weren't directed at me but I over heard them and I noticed you didn't reply to my stains on sheets no tolit paper upon check in of room I have pictures by the way also the no smoking room that smelled of a smoking bar! and burns on blankets   I PLAN ON GETTING A COPY OF MY CREDIT CARD BILL TAKING A PICTURE OF THE PAYED STAY AT THE HOTEL AND POSTING IT TO MY REVIEW TO SHOW OTHER GUEST MY STAY YOUR TRYING TO DENY! I have read through a couple of responses to bad reviews per other guest at the hotel and I noticed a few say we have no records of your stay is that how you aim for readers to think people just have nothing else to do with there time but lie about your hotel look back at reviews there is alot more bad reviews then good do the math. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TALK ABOUT THIS IN PERSON ID BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO CALL YOU PLEASE PROVIDE YOUR NAME AND DIRECT PHONE NUMBER SINCERELY JOSE    My original review Horrible place i stayed for  a week originally planned two weeks took my stay elsewhere I was on a local construction job this place is a dump! Someone tried to break into my truck Sepousios activity in parking lot! Made complaints to front desk lady I was told cameras were down not working?? No security at all ever checking the premises plenty of bums begging and drug deals in parking lot the now for the room sheets stained cigarette burns on blankets room smelled of smoke this was a no smoking room! The Tv had horrible picture the wi fi barley works on arrival the room only had a quarter roll of toilet paper. Toilet always clogging I asked a woman cleaner to request for maintenance by the time the maintenance guy arrived 2 days later I already fixed the problem my self this is it where it gets even better I didn't catch the maintenance guys name as he didn't say he had a snobby attitude a shorter mid 20s latino I herd him singing some made up song as he came up to my door and then again after he was walking away but it consisted the N word ever other word (N**ger) I found this very disrespectful as a part Aferican American everything about the place is horrible do your self a favor and aviod it at all cost! Upon Check out I asked to speak to a supervisor and was told he was out on vacation and not reachable! Yeah right I guess they cover up each others tracks at this location Guest Relations answer Jose, you will notice by every other response from me or my team that we are accountable above all else. Our only priority is to ensure our guests have the best possible experience while staying with us. But in your case I take exception with your review. First, we do not have any record of you staying with us. And after speaking to my team and reviewing video there is nothing to support any of your claims. And you certainly did not ask for me or I would have made myself available. Second, myself and my team both celebrate diversity and are made up of people of varied race, national origin and background. So your charge of racism is aimed at the wrong people. In regards to the issues you raise...we have the fastest WiFi available in the area (as evidenced in many guest reviews). We have new flat screen TVs and a state of the art security network with multiple interior and exterior cameras to ensure the safety of our guests. Ultimately, I question both your personal motivation and the integrity of your review. However, I and the team at El Camino remain passionately committed to providing the most comfortable visit for all of our guests and are always available to quickly address any issue that arises. Sincerely Guest Relations.
