This makes out 4th time to stay here. Would not stay ANYWHERE else while in Ruidoso. Cabins are awesome - secluded - clean - what else could you ask for ?? Cabin 12 is the one we have stayed at each and every time. My wife was disappointed not to find the Diary books that once were left here for... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our lodge. Our cabins are nothing short of spectacular with vaulted ceilings, amazing wood craft, whirlpools, fireplaces and awesome decks. Come again soon! More

I did extensive research to find a nice place for my husband and I to stay for our 5th anniversary, and the price for the romantic lodge room #4 was perfect. The room was very clean, and though the bed was a bit hard for my taste, the sheets and pillows were soft. The TV had many channels, and I... More

Please note - our review is for the 4 bedroom cabin #22. The other cabins are of varying quality and may be nicer. We did not step into the main lodge and have no comment about it's quality. We rented this cabin a few weeks ago. We arrived late in the evening - the keys were left in an envelope... More

We want you to know that the previous owners are no in possession of Upper Canyon Lodge. To the best of our knowledge they continue to own the rental you refer to, but it has absolutely no relationship with UCI any longer. Upper Canyon Inn has some beautiful two person cabins and two person rooms. There are also some four... More

As the new managers of Upper Canyon Inn we want to first apologize for your awful experience. The owner of the cabin you stayed in no longer owns UCI, the bank took it back a week ago.

We stay here each time that we go to Ruidoso. The rooms are always clean, well maintained, and reasonably priced. The best thing about this place are the owners. They are always pleasant to visit with and will call you by name.

The hotel was perfect for our vacation; the self contained rooms (we had the raccoon suite) were perfect for what we needed. With a full kitchen and living area it made the stay that little extra pleasant, we were there during Christmas and it began snowing the day we arrived and snowed for 2 days straight. That hotel is very... More

I have stayed in plenty of Cabins in New Mexico and this one is definitely a C- at best (504 Main St). There was an abudant smelll of propane in the cabin due to the multiple heaters throughout the cabin. The hot-tub was awesome though. We really did not eat in due to there being only Salvation Army reject quality... More

The owner of the cabin you stayed in is no longer associated with Upper Canyon Lodge. The bank has taken it back and we are contracted to manage UCI.

This was our first time staying in a cabin or in this case, trailer converted cabin. The place was clean and felt like a cozy home. They are a bit older but have character. Stayed in 2 different cabins since we decided to stay an extra night. They were both fully stocked with kitchen utensils, plates and pans, bathroom soaps,... More

We stayed in "Mountain Elegance", a studio Jacuzzi suite, for two nights starting on Thanksgiving. We got off to a rough start when we locked ourselves out of the cabin at 10pm on Thanksgiving Day, but we called the emergency number on the office door and a very friendly (and forgiving!) gentleman showed up in about 2 minutes to let...
