We stayed here for a night and found the room #14 to be spacious - having fireplace (which you have to clean before leaving if you use it) a kitchen area with microwave, fridge, two burner stove and sink area, dishes & pots/pans. Bathroom had small sink area (one small broken bar of soap, towels which were rough, no hair... More

This is the 3rd or 4th time to stay here and we have just enjoyed the stay. The rooms sre quite cozy with a kitchenette and a fireplace. Would definitely recommend this place to others. We were sitting outside watching the deer graze on the grass. Just a added bonus.

Staff was friendly, room was fully furnished, including toaster, stove and dishwasher. Walking distance to stores. Very close to mountain. I will definitely be staying here again when I return to Ruidoso!

We enjoyed our stay here at the West Winds Lodge. The location was good as it was near the main street in town on N. Eagle. We could walk to some of the restaurants and stores. There was not a morning place to eat or get coffee though. We had to drive for that which was a bummer. The room... More

It was a nice little place to stay. It was a basic hotel room but you felt like you were staying at a lodge, with the looks of the style design. It has an indoor pool. It was walking distance to downtown Riudoso. The staff was friendly, good price for the area. we paid around $85ish. Had a king size... More

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
