Hacienda Inn


Member Rating 1 out of 5 by beckilena on June 12, 2006

My mother and I set out to plan our graduation celebration vacation and trusted the Internet to lead us in a good direction...wrong. The Hacienda Inn appears like a deal at $50 a night for two people, but upon arrival the tables turn. We arrived after driving 6 hours from Colorado and thought we could seek rest and relaxation in our deal of a hotel room. First off we paid before seeing the room...big mistake. The picture on the website is not the room we walked in on. It looked to be a seedy road side motel from a horror film in the 1970s.

 

The sign out front claiming to have the "cleanest rooms in Taos" was a far cry from the stained bath tub and dingy hotel room we walked in on. We asked for a refund and the desk clerk insured us that their "deluxe" rooms we're much better and she'd upgrade us to one for no extra charge. The "deluxe" room was the same deal, but with a ceiling fan and a border around the walls...horrible. On the phone when making the reservation, we were told the complementary breakfast included fruit, juice, and a pastry of sorts...upon arrival, the clerk informed us she'd make a pot of coffee at 7am, and that my friends was breakfast...disgust!

When we asked for a refund the clerk informed us that she was not authorized to do that and she would have the owner do that in the morning. We called the credit card company and they said they would dispute the charges. When we arrived at the visitor center to reserve another room, they laughed in our faces for believing the Hacienda's sale pitch, which I guess most tourists fall for. They redirected us to the Best Western, and for $30 more our horror film was brought to a happy ending.
