We spent 4 nights here using our timshare points. The staff and manager were very friendly. Check in was smooth. They also provided us with information on the area. Units were very dirty, and a lot of it had not been cleaned. The worst was the black mold growing on the shower room ceiling. I did tell the front desk,... More

The condo itself is a bit dated. It kind of took me back to my days growing up. 80's furniture and appliances but it worked ok for us. We were there to see the All American Futurity....we had towels, shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, utensils, dishes, pots. Overall the staff was super nice and we aren't very picky. The place was...

Do not go to this disgusting place, it is filled with huge nasty spider webs, the furniture and appliances are very old and broken down and the staff is rude and unprofessional. The condo was very dirty and smelled bad, one of the toilets did not have running water and we had to fix it ourselves. There was dirt everywhere... More

We stayed here three nights on our way to El Paso, Texas. We had stayed here about twenty years ago and this was available for the time we needed it. We stayed in a three bedroom, two bath unit. The management is currently updating the units, replacing flooring and redoing the bathrooms and decking. The unit was comfortable, but the... More

Full of spiders, filthy, old, my skin is crawling and we are leaving as soon as our kids wake up. My husband is so upset and this was supposed to be a nice vacation with my his parents for our kids birthdays. The only thing worth the stay is the company we are with we rate it 0.00

A girls' birthday getaway of card playing, visiting and grazing our way through the weekend took us here. Very high off the narrow, beaten path (no lights at night on narrow, winding road with long drop-offs), our 3 bedroom condo had a great view. We never ventured to the pool area because the jacuzzi was not working and except for... More

We live in Alamogordo and decided to get away from, but stay close there for Spring Break. March/April weather in the mountains is great during the day, between high 50s to mid 70s. There's nothing to do by the resort except go to the indoor pool. We ventured to the town of ruidoso to play disc golf and go hiking...closest... More

the view is absolutely amazing. The facility, however leaves a lot to be desired. If you have been to other resorts, this is not up to those expectations. Had to call about lights not working, patio door handle missing, and burnt out fan switch. Otherwise it was okay.

First the good attributes. The resort is about 1000' above the surrounding town so there is an impressive view of the mountain and the valley. The staff was friendly and tried to be helpful. The apartment is large. There is a fireplace. There seems to be outside cooking facilities, etc. The deer eat out of your hand in the parking... More

We stopped by to tour the property for upcoming stay. What a beautiful scenery view and the bull elk and mule ear deer provided ample opportunities to interact and experience. The mule deer and their babies will come to you when you call out to them and will stay around for toast!
