Pool not in service after being called on pool status. A/C not working, room did not cool down as fast as told w/ window fan. Perhaps poor service was caused by lack of patrons. hotel was older and room was very small. Hotel was clean but did not have individual soap for sink and shower. Sink had a pump style...

Beds were comfortable had the memory foams. Everything was new and clean in the two bedroom lodge. The fresh air outside make it very pleasant to sleep with windows opened. The rooms looked recently remodeled. The pool and hot tub are great. It's walking distance to the Sanctuary on the river for a spa getaway. Lucy's cafe and several shopping...

Looking for an inexpensive trip for young couples or empty nesters then this is your spot. They have inexpensive rooms that are very basic if you are looking to come in to ski and be close to downtown. This spot is 1 block from the main restaurant area of downtown. The indoor pool is nice, but what makes this spot...

We go to Ruidoso about 2 times a year and ALWAYS stay here. We love (being older and creaky) the open-to-the sky-but- walled hot tub, but haven't used the indoor pool yet. As stated in the title, the small kitchenette and large bedroom we always rent are clean and VERY comfortable for the two of us. But we wouldn't go...
