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

This older "gentleman" mentioned by another reviewer is a [--]!

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

When we got to our room we found dried boogers on the wall, dried ketchup on the wall, the shower knob came off when we turned on the water, the bathroom floor was disgustingly dirty! the door would barely open & close, we had to turn the thermostat as far down as it would go to make the air come...

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.
