Stayed here a few times and it's away from the busy streets so it's pretty nice. It's old and needs attention. Kitchen is provided but we prefer to eat at the local restaurants. Beautiful scenery and activities to do in town

I promised the person I spoke to that I would leave a terrible review and I keep my promises. I had to cancel a trip for March 2015. The day I made the reservation I was charged one night. I cancelled Jan 8, 2015 and as of today 1/26/15 have not been refunded. I have sent emails and have called... More

Nothing was good about this place. The windows and doors leaked. It was freezing in the cabin. The bathroom was disgusting. Water ran all the time and texture on the walls was falling off. Hot and cold water turned off in different directions. Towel rack was falling off the wall. Kitchen wasn't any better; don't plan to cook here. Burners... More

I had stayed here before on a school trip so i expected the place to be a bit different from what I remembered. Traveled on a faimily trip so we liked the setting of the lodge but i never got to see an actual employee. When we arrived aroound check in time there was no one in the office the... More

Most of the time the 60s refrigerator didn't keep our food cold. The couple times it rained the skylight leaked. Several times we had to ask for more TP, no extra in the room. Heated pool was too cold to swim, hot tube out of order. Bathroom was a little larger than one on an airplane. Old thermostat would run... More

We went as a family to see some of the western attractions and it was a good price clean and TV that worked. Indoor pool was great for my kids and all in all it was good not in town but still able to get around. The owner was nice and it was a good stay

Came up to Ruidoso for the softball tournaments with my family, my parents, & my 2 brothers families. Had such a wonderful time. The kids loved the pool, adults loved the Jacuzzi. Owners were awesome!!! It may not be one of the fanciest cabins but I believe it was well worth the money. Would most definitely stay here again in... More

The cabins were overpriced for the age of the lodge. The cabins were clean. Staff very friendly. We enjoyed our stay but could've been in much better place for $129.00 a night. Full kitchen was stocked.

This place was TERRIBLE. The first cabin they put us in was dirty. Both chairs and the blinds in the living room had been chewed by a dog, didn't dare sit on the couch. The blinds in one of the bedrooms would not close, one of the rooms smelled like the aforementioned dog was still in residence. Looked like someone... More

Love this place! We were in town for the horse races at Ruidoso Downs and could not find a place near the race track, We were lucky to get a cabin here due to a last minute cancellation. The place was a real step back in time. Real cabins with two bedrooms and kitchen and fireplace. We took a gondola... More
