Decided to take my family to Ruidoso for a few days during spring break. Read many reviews and settled on Upper Canyon Inn. Check in took less that 5 minutes. We were directed to #7 in the lodge portion of the property. The place was outstanding. It seemed brand new. Big king size bed. Two recliners in front of the...

As it being our 5th Anniversary we wanted to stay somewhere nice and cozy. Cabin #15 & #16 are the nicest and most luxury. We stayed in #15, it was so cute and very nice wood working throughout the cabin. The mattress was a little too hard for us but we are use to a super soft mattress. However, that...

We stayed in room #3 in the lodge. It was a lick-and-a-promise clean, but base boards, doors and door ways needed to be cleaned. One dinning room chair was broken. This room was in the down stairs center and when water was running in other rooms is was noisy in ours. On the upside --- it was in the quite...

Stayed in Cabin 11 which really was a duplex but had a pleasant night stay and never heard the neighbors. Very convenient location and easy to find. It's dated on the inside but a decent 2-bedroom with kitchen area.

Booked room about a month in advance with no trouble, had to add an extra day and this was done with great ease. The room we had booked was available, but they were going to be renovating so they kindly moved us to a stand alone cabin. All I can say is AMAZING!!!! These cabins are updated and beautiful. Beds...

The staff here is awesome!! Had an unforeseen situation that shouldn't have happened, but no ones fault, and they jumped on it and was taken care of immediately, even the owner came out to take care of it. The place was very clean and nice. Location was pretty close to the heart of shopping. We stayed in Lodge 10, lots...

We booked a cabin last minute. It was exactly what we needed, a clean safe place to stay. Cabin 11 is a small 2 bedroom, 1 bath, it's a duplex with cabin 12. We never heard our neighbors but they were there. The cabin is on the list for upgrades I was told. I hope they start with the beds!...

Thanks for the great review. Cabin 11 is a gem from the rustic days of Ruidoso. We are closing in on completing major renovations throughout the entire property, converting the lodge into all whirlpool suites. We expect to have all work completed by late fall this year. That will include all new beds! Come again.

This was a beautiful cabin but did have "DrawBacks". First I was going to book at Shadow Mountain Lodge and Cabins but Upper Canyon had a king size bed and I thought a wooden floor. The kitchen area looked clean and was adequate for what it was, a small area..we were not going to use it anyway...The bathroom itself ,...

Thanks for the honest review. We only recently purchased this property and are scrambling to restore it to its once former glory by November. New carpet is on the list, but the existing carpet is still servicable and was steam cleaned recently. We are in the process of completely renovating the entire property, but since the cabin you stayed in...

Clean and comfortable cabin. We stayed in cabin #11. Floors need some updating but were clean. Owners were friendly and helpful. Loved sitting out on the front porch in the rocking chairs and enjoying the cool pines. Nice amenities, nice big TV, air conditioned as well. Best of all it was pet friendly with a nice little park next to...

My son and I were chased out of our tent in the great outdoors by freezing weather, and by happenstance ended up at the Upper Canyon Inn. What a delightful find!! We stayed in a 2 bedroom which was nicely appointed and had all the amenities one might desire. As someone mentioned in a previous review, the kitchen is a...

“Cabins 11 & 12 face sit closer to a busy road than the other ones but not too loud.”

“Even though the lodge is close to downtown, the combination of road construction and lack of sidewalks in some areas makes walking somewhat of an adventure. I would avoid walking if you have children or are elderly.”
