I have stayed in this motel for the last 7 years while in Ruidoso for a week of vacation. The motel is under new ownership and the new owners are very friendly. The rooms are very clean and well taken care of. If you are in Ruidoso and need place to stay. I highly recommend the Arrowhead Motel

I had the pleasure of staying at the Arrowhead Motel earlier this month. I generally like small, non-chain motels, depending of course on their condition and cleanliness. Upon entering the room, I was greated with that musty (a good musty) smell of an older, well kept room. The bed was comfortable and the A/C nice and cool. The room was... More

Thank you for your nice comments. Sorry about cell phone reception but as you say that is AT&T and I can't do anything about that. As for the TV being mounted on the wall which is true, however it will swing out and rotate so that you can see it very well from both beds, next time let me know... More

The best value!! For several years we have been staying at Arrowhead Motel when we come to Ruidoso for a week of vacation. The owner Norma is very friendly and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. There are chairs outside the rooms where you can sit and enjoy the beautiful scenery. If you are in Ruidoso and need a... More

The best value and fun in America!!! Norma runs the best 15 room motel around. Set in the picturesque pines with great views, this small motel reminds me of the mom and pop motels that were around when we were kids. It is the easiest parking and easy unloading on flat ground and takes only minutes to unpack. We sit... More

We've been coming to Ruidoso for years. My husband came alone one year and stayed here and loved it! We've come here staying in the same room when she can book it for us ever since ! Norma takes pride in the cleanliness of these rooms like it was her own home! The rooms are updated and very comfortable. Don't... More

This is exactly the kind of place we look for. Vintage but in great repair, great neon, mom & pop owned. The towels were more plush than my home towels. For us, this was a one night stay and the location was perfect. Might have been a little small if we were there a week or had kids along. You... More

I stayed in the hotel. This hotel is the old roadside style of hotel, but it has been updated, is very clean, and very well maintained. From the moment I stepped into the office I could tell the management takes pride in this property. It was a slow day in town, and the rate I got was really good. It... More

I have driven by here many times and always found it look well maintain so decided to stop. I was glad I did as the rooms were extremely clean, updated and quiet. The owner was very helpful with ideas of where to eat and sites to visit. Will stop again the next time I am in Ruidoso.
