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

Property location and hosts are absolutely great. The property is older but reasonably well maintained and clean. The area is extremely quiet. The kitchenette areas are not well stocked enough for our liking but overall for price paid this is a good value in Ruidoso.

My husband and I have stayed at the West Winds several times over the last 10 years! We have always enjoyed our stay. Tony, Vicky, and Teresa have always made us feel welcome and right at home. The accommodations are clean and comfortable and the pool and soaking tub are an added bonus. This lodge is about a block from... More
