Love the atmosphere and friendly people! Feels like you're at home when you're here, but you don't have to do the work! You even have a front yard to enjoy, complete with sauna, grill, flowers and hummingbirds!! The rooms are comfy and homey.. each one a little different with all the modern necessities. We stay here as often as possible... More

What a great find for a hotel in Ruidoso. It is on the main drag but I suggest to drive your vehicle to the main touristy store area. Only about 10 minutes from Inn of the Mountain Gods so if you are there for a concert or special even this is a good place to stay. The owners are very... More

An older property that is well-maintained and very clean. Had a comfortable and relaxing stay. It has a friendly atmosphere and is close to downtown Ruidoso. I have stayed in Ruidoso many times, in a variety of hotel properties and the Sitzmark beats the chain hotels in the same price range for both comfort and service.

We stayed here twice this week, as a stopover on a short road trip, both going and coming back. You just can't beat the Sitzmark for value, cleanliness and friendly service. We always opt for the hot coffee & home made muffins in the lobby each morning, but there is a coffee pot, fridge and microwave in the room (use... More

A cozy home away from home....We were very comfortable at our stay. This place is well maintained. The atmosphere was relaxing and even though it was close to the main street, we couldn't hear the traffic noise. We can't believe there is still an affordable gem!!!!! my kids enjoyed the stay. Thank you Sitzmark!!!!!

We stayed at the Sitzmark on our ski trip during the Presidents' Day weekend. We were all surprised at this inn due to the cleanliness and wonderful service. The first night, we stayed at room 16.
