We stayed at The Lodge over the 4th Holiday. I called to ask about pet policies & pet friendly rooms & did not find out there was a weight limit, until check in. We were allowed to stay but I felt funny about it. There is no mention of the policy on the website either. (Website is not very good.... More

Thank you for the review of your recent stay. Please accept my apologies for a less than perfect stay at The Lodge. Yes, our pet policy has a 25 pound weight limit however we do make some exceptions for well behaved larger dogs. I'm sorry that the weight limit wasn't told to you upon making the reservation. Sounds like it... More

Had a wonderful stay at The Lodge. We were there for a business meeting that was conveniently located next to the Convention Center. We stayed in Room 341, which had a great view of the golf course and mountains. Walking trails were immediately next to the outside patio area. Food at the restaurant was great, front desk staff was very... More

Our family travels to Ruidoso every year to visit family. By far, this has been the worst hotel stay. Thinking if we chose a hotel a month in advance, we would get a great view of the mountains. Wrong! Our view was the top of the building on the 2nd floor. The bathroom would not shut, the bathroom tile was... More

We booked the king suite with jacuzzi tub, fireplace, and balcony. The so called suite is very small. The jacuzzi tub has mold around all the jets and top of the tub and the fireplace is a cheap electric. The balcony with great views sold to me on the phone is maybe 5x5 with a light falling off the wall... More

Thank you for the review. Our king studio suites are actually quite spacious at 575 square feet. The balconies are small (we call them cozy) at about 6' x 4' with two chairs and a small table. Some overlook the golf course, others overlook the mountains and parking. If you have a preference on view, it's a good idea to... More

The Lodge is a very beautiful hotel. It's right on the golf course, great atmosphere. Employees were very nice, and our dog was allowed to stay and they were very accommodating. I expected a little more out of the rooms for the price you pay. Rooms need a little maintenance. Caulking needs to be redone, a new coat of paint,... More

Overall the Lodge at Sierra Blanca is a nice hotel, but the fitness center is in very poor condition. There are two treadmills that have belts that slip and the belt surface is uneven. Basically, the treadmills are unsafe. One-half of the free weights are missing. The Nautalus-style weight machine was broken. And the recumbent excercise bike was not fully... More

Our room was a King Studio Suite. Very large L-shaped room, with small living area and full kitchen - microwave, large refrigerator, sink, stove, dishes, dishwasher, etc. The room also has a gas fireplace you can turn on with a timer on the wall.

We stayed in a King Studio Suite. We had a great view. The staff was friendly. I have never eaten a better breakfast in Ruidoso. Alfredo did a fabulous job with our cooked to order omelets. The salsa was the best I have eaten anywhere! We will be back!
