The Inn of the Mountain Gods is a beautiful, picturesque resort just outside Ruidoso, NM. Casino Apache was very clean, handles smoking well, and offers a large variety of gaming options. Slot machines are modern and fun to play.....payouts are well below Vegas percentages, but I knew that going in.

Can't say much after visiting the Inn first. We had gone to The Inn of The Mountain Gods first and were not impressed at all. Then we found the Billy the Kid casino at Ruidoso Downs. We went back to our hotel and looked up The Inn on the net and saw they mentioned that they also owned the Casino... More

This was a small casino that is also a restaurant and travel center with gas pumps. It seems quite popular, not many open machines there...and quite smokey. Good security as we saw a number of guards there.

I you enjoy breathing second hand smoke in a casino, this is the best choice. A small area and not many choice for machine to play. Other locations in town for gaming

I prefer the other local casinos but this one isn't bad. Never has been that crowded when I am there. Smoky when crowded but not overwhelmingly so. People are friendly enough. The attached convenience store is clean and well stocked with standards for that type store. The coffee is good! Gas prices are a couple of cents cheaper than in... More

It's your average casino, kind if small, but it definitely pays better than the inn of the mountain gods. The restaurant is pretty good.

We have been going here for years but have become increasingly disappointed in the casino area. They just do not spend enough time or money keeping it clean of litter.

The buffet was great, but if you can't stand cigaret smoke, than the casino is not right for you. The games are fun, go to the blazing 7s slots, they are my favorite.
