I found tons of not so great reviews about this little hotel online. I looked through the pictures and liked what I saw. The bad reviews were wrong. I can't figure out what people had to complain about. This trip was a short birthday getaway for my fiance & we LOVED staying at this unique hotel. Our room was the... More

Thank you so much for your review. It made us smile :) We aren't your typical Inn...we like to be a step away from the run of the mill chains and give you a memorable experience with eclectic decor, colored towels, hummingbirds buzzing on the front lawn, and a gondola photo-op opportunity. Not all like to step out of the... More

Needed a place to stay for only a few nights and cabin rentals were pricey with deposits/cleaning fees. Headed to TripAdvisor and found Sitzmark Chalet. Sent the owner Todd several emails regarding our reservation. Always prompt to reply and very kind in every response. Upon our arrival we were thrilled to find the Sitzmark so very cute! It's just precious... More

Wonderful and charming motel; owners were so friendly and helpful. We spent four nights there for a get-away mini vacation and were so glad we chose this place. It was close to everything and our room was very clean and comfortable. The fresh muffins every morning was a treat. It was just a short drive to Ruidoso Downs for the... More

Thank you for your review! Many patrons do not realize how much it benefits us for guests to leave reviews of their stay...for our little Inn not being a "chain" it helps us ten fold!

Super cute! Eclectically modern, comfy, and clean. Great, helpful owners. Very happy with our experience. Room 21 was great. Wi-fi, premium channels, designer soaps/shampoo, microwave, refrigerator, noise machine for away-from-home sleep. Highly recommend!

We loved the Sitzmark, a charming little inn. I had a lovely morning, sitting in the garden, enjoying the cool weather, watching the hummingbirds. We stayed in many hotels/inns on our trip, and this was by far the best value.

This was such a great choice for a place to stay while in Ruidoso. It has such a homey feel to it, that it feels like you are staying at a family members house. There is nothing fancy about it, but that is what gives it its great feel. The rooms are clean and comfy and hotel is located close... More

My son and I came to Ruidoso and decided to stay here based on TripAdvisor reviews. I'm so glad we did! I stay at so many fancy chain hotels for work, and doing that, you almost forget that places can be unique and quirky and charming. This place was all that. There is a lovely garden with picnic tables and... More

From wooden Indians, shady lawn with hummingbirds galore, to whiskey barrel sauna - which worked great, BTW! - this place was VERY nice! Owners Todd & Lori always handy with great recommendations for food and what to do at Ski Apache. (We will ride the mile-long zip-line next trip!)
