The Lodge is a nice place to stay. Very friendly staff and great breakfast options. Ask for specials, as they have them quite often, especially during the off season. We had a King Suite, so I would definitely suggest that type of room. I would not call it a Luxury Lodge, but it's very suitable for most needs. Great place... More

Service was normal. The tub took a long time to fill up. The breakfast was great but packed because of a wedding. I feel like we paid an average price. Parking was easy. King size bed was amazing. The kitchenette was what made the price of the room worth it.

We loved the customer service, atmosphere, and breakfast accommodations that are included with our room. Great Omelet bar, they will create any omelet you request and this is part of the continental breakfast! The room was very nice, spacious, clean and cozy. We reserved a king suite that has a fireplace, jacuzzi tub and a kitchenette and it was great.... More

If you are on the fence about Inn of the Mountain Gods or the Lodge at Sierra Blanca, it's the Lodge every time. My husband's job brings us to Ruidoso frequently and we have stayed at several hotels in town. By far, The Lodge is the classiest, nicest, most comfortable and conveniently located. You're close to the main drag (Suddeth... More

There's nothing more awesome in the midst of the winter doldrums after the holidays are over to escape for a quick get-away to rest, relax and recharge. And the Lodge at Sierra Blanca is the perfect....or as my dog, Jack would say...PAWfect....place to land. Besides being an awesome resort with big roomy suites....there's nothing more AHHHHsome than to sit back... More

We stayed the weekend before Christmas. Our family had a Double Queen and my parents had a King Suite. Both were very nice. The King Suite had a full kitchen, gas fireplace, and whirlpool tub....nice extras for the same price as our Double Queen. We had a special rate on both rooms and it was an exceptional value. Buffet breakfast... More

I expected more from the Lodge. First of all the front lobby was nice and the staff. My wife and I stayed in a suite. The first thing I noticed, it looked new outside, well maintained but rotten inside. The suite that we stayed in had molds on bathroom walls. If it were not molds it should have been cleaned... More

Thank you for the review of your recent stay at the Lodge. My apologies for a less than perfect stay. You mentioned that the outside and public areas were in good shape; we have done some recent upgrades to make sure it looks great. Some of the furniture and carpet have some age, although kept clean and in good shape.... More

I have stayed at The Lodge many times over the past 8 years. In all that time I have been at least, 'satisfied' with the quality of the facility - not so this time.

Thank you for the review of your recent stay. I notice that you stayed during a very busy holiday period, which explains the line for breakfast omelets and limited places to sit. We have 64 seats in our breakfast area but during heavy (family) holidays, it can be a short wait. I'm glad to note you mentioned the cleanliness and... More

Recommend this place. Good pricing for the quality of amenities and room. Out of downtown Ruidoso traffic and close to skiing. Resort quality at hotel pricing when we stayed. Its on a nice golf course, however we stayed after summer season and right at the start of ski season
