Great service, comfortable rooms and beautiful views. We plan to return. We stayed in the two bed with a kitchen cabin. Pet friendly is a plus! The owners were very accommodating and the cleaning service lady was very nice. Love love loved it here!

My husband and I have stayed at West Winds many times. The owners, Tony and Vicky, do everything they can to provide excellent service and a friendly atmosphere. We've rented condos when family and friends join us and lodge rooms when we are by ourselves. We've been very pleased with all of our accommodations. The rooms are clean, the price... More

We get down to Ruidoso each year to go to the races at Ruidoso Downs. West Winds is a very nice place on a quiet street with lush landscaping along the borders to give you the feeling that you are almost in the woods. The motel is well maintained and clean. We often stay in the room with two queens... More

Nestled in the tall pines we have stayed here several times over the past few years.....Every trip made to Ruidodo we stay here. The staff is so friendly and love the rooms also. Just a short walk into Midtown and the lodge has a porch swing outside the rooms to relax. After a day of gambling or shopping they have... More

West Wind Lodge is the best place to stay in Ruidoso. Quiet, clean and yet walking distance to everything. Great indoor pool and the owners treat everyone like family. I've been staying here every summer for the last 10 years and I hope I can stay here 10 more. You will love it !!!!! Thanks, Joel

Just finished a four night stay in a 2x queen cabin room (lodge part of hotel). I'm not sure why there are so many positive reviews as the "lodge" rooms are not very nice. I can't comment on the condos which look ok from the outside. Pros: - Just like everyone else said...the staff is Great and very friendly. -... More

This place was great. My Wife and I went on our honeymoon here during spring break since just about every other place was booked. It was a good time. The only two complaints I have are the wood for the fireplace was a little expensive and the wifi signal was poor. There is a place to cook breakfast, shower comfortably,... More

Posted by Becky McElroy: I love this place. The owners are GREAT! They always make sure we are well taken care of and are very accommodating. We always stay in the condos which are big, clean and comfortable. We stay here every year with a large group of family and would not choose anywhere else! Its also a great rate.... More
