OK, let's get this out of the way. If you're looking for luxury accommodations, look elsewhere. If you're looking for an excellent bang for your buck in a great location in Ruidoso, look no further. Let's start with the facility. This is an older property. It was built in the early 70's and it's showing its age. The decor is...

Overall it was a good stay. Very comfortable and clean inside. The owner was very nice, quick check in. A couple of observations for the manager of Village Lodge-the sidewalk was dirty, a lot of debris, if you look outside the window from the bedroom there is a lot of junk in the back, kind of an eye sore, toaster...

This is an old, apartment complex that is now considered a condo complex. It’s seen better days but the owner/managers seemed to be working very hard to make it the best they could. The location was great for me as I had a car, did not want to stay in the busy town area, and wanted some quiet. It’s close...

Clean 1980s condo in a nice location. We spent two nights here and it was a very nice stay. Full kitchen and living room. The people were friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again. Close to the general aviation airport and good local restaurants.

These are not luxury accommodations but they have everything you need for longer stays. They are basically little condos with a small living room with fireplace, kitchenette small bath and a bedroom(s). I've stayed here on multiple occasions and found it quite comfortable. Some rooms are nicer and more updated than others, but all are cozy.

These places are a little bit older, but have everything you need. They do have too much furniture to pull out the couch, so after a lot of rearranging we were able to finally do that. My son said the pull out couch wasn't very comfortable (surprise, surprise). The king size bed in the master bedroom was great. The hot...

This is like a small apartment complex that has been converted to a rental facility. It is not a cabin, but you can go outside and be among the trees. This is now one of my top 3 places to stay in Ruidoso. First of all the people that run this place are very nice and attentive. They keep the...

If all you need is hot water and a good bed - stay here. If you require people to answer questions or handle issues, you will have to wait until 11AM to see a live person. Time wasted on vacation means you are not making any memories.

Definitely recommend this place. It was quiet, cozy, and clean. The owner was very friendly, nice, and helpful. Only downsides seemed that the lodge is far from the mountain (it was about a 45min twisty/turny drive to Ski Apache) and the floor is a little creaky (heard people walking around upstairs at 2am). Also, the wifi wasn't great (but who...

Very cozy place and reasonably priced. Close to good restaurants and the drive to the slopes wasn't very bad at all. Would come back. The place was very well kept, dishes, coffee, microwave, toaster, refrigerator all included. We didn't bring our bathing suits so couldn't utilize the hot tub but it was pretty warm while we were there anyways.
