The owners are very nice and attentive; seem striving to clean the place up. Having said that, we decided to stay another day in Ruidoso because of the heavy snowfall. Not wanting to pay an outrageous amount of money, we saw the hotel and asked for rates. The most I was expecting to pay was $60-70. I paid $90! The... More

I spent two nights here because I was on a road trip and other places in Ruidoso were very expensive. I was able to stay here both nights for less than the price of one in other hotels. This place is old but it was clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff was helpful and friendly.

I hate writing a negative review, however this is an honest and truthful review of our stay. The room was reserved on line. The room was clean but dingy and it smelled. The carpet was dirty. We immediately tried to get out of the reservation but the attendant told us we couldn't because we had made our reservation online and... More

We would have been better off in a tent in the fire area. As far as price $90 was total bull. Two of the three windows didn't lock, the other window in the room had no curtain on it and looked like a two way mirror, and the door only lock was the key card no other locks.The carpet looked... More

We were evacuated during the Little Bear fire. It was the middle of the night. We were scared and needed a place to collect ourselves for the rest of the night. We were charged $85.00 for a room in which the electrical connection most likely broke every fire code. There was not hot water in the morning. Later I found... More

When we checked in, our toilet would not work and the curtain in the room was barely hanging up. The shower had VERY little hot water and was very difficult to operate. The room was not very clean. The icing on the cake was the towels that had "Hampton Inn" on them. I felt the room was extremely overpriced for... More

First, don't believe Economy Inn's advertising that their rooms average at about $40 a night. For three people to stay in one small room for one night, we were charged $153. When booking the room, we knew that we didn't need luxury accomodations, but we at least expected the basic necessities (beds, hot water and electricity) especially for the overblown... More

I reserved a room in advance at Economy Inn for a holiday weekend using my credit card to secure the room. When I arrived at the motel the office was closed with a note on the door stating "be back in 30 minutes" with no indication of when they left and a phone number to call. When I called the... More
