Booked a room for a steal on Expedia. Hotel had an indoor pool (murky but kids had fun) and free coffee (not bad). Room was decent: micro, fridge, long desk, plenty of towels, shampoo/conditioner, soap, makeup remover...no iron in room. Overall tub and vanity were clean, beds were okay, and the location of the hotel was excellent. For the low... More

My husband and I are currently staying at this hotel and we will not be coming back. We have stayed at different cabins, chalets and lodges in the area and even after reading the reviews for this place we figured "what the hay! It can't be that bad." But believe me it is. The rooms are disgusting and this after... More

My annual trip to Ruidoso in july was slightly tarnished by my Motel 6 experience. I brought along a potential client and booked a separate room for him. So many disappointments for this trip. First, the icemaker on the second floor was dry and out of order. I asked that a sign be posted; "we just ordered the part," the... More

The check in was fast which is great when your tired and ready to go to bed. The rooms were clean and believe me I check for small details... More

When staying one night I tend to book Motel 6 or similar, knowing what to expect. This time it was a bad experience. The room was small by itself. However a corner of it was taken by the control room of the neighboring indoor swimming pool, leaving very little room space for walking and luggage. My complaint was met by... More

This older "gentleman" mentioned by another reviewer is a [--]! I got online and got a price, showed up in person and asked for that price and he said, "we don't do that stuff - I don't know where that stuff comes from". He could not have been ruder!

I did not know what the buzzing noise was in the walls! Another reviewer likened it to an electric sander. Whatever it is, be prepared to wake up throughout the night! That is, if the drunks at this hotel allow you to sleep. We finally called the front desk at 3:30am to complain. We were told they would call the... More

If you love cold showers and electric sander type buzzing in the walls all night then you will love this Motel 6 in Ruidiso. If you love cold showers and electric sander type buzzing in the walls all night then you will love this Motel 6 in Ruidiso.
