This hotel was basic, but clean and at a reasonable price. It was conveniently located to all of the attractions. The pool and hot tub were both closed, which was disappointing. Breakfast was minimal, but fine. The best thing was sitting out in the back area during our "down time." We peacefully sat overlooking the mountains as hummingbirds zoomed around.

We booked here instead of at a resort because of the price. Our room was very spacious and comfortable and CLEAN. We booked a one room king suite. It had a king bed, a small sofa that apparently can pull out into a bed as well, a roomy desk (with quite a few outlets on it), and a small table... More

This hotel needs some TLC. The fitness center is a joke, my bathroom smelled of urine and the tv remote needed batteries. Used to be a nice place, but now is really rundown. Find some place else to stay.

Hotel is conveniently located. Rates were great for this time of the year. Staff was helpful. We visited Ruidoso to gamble at casino. Considering it was Valentine week end, we thought it was best of choices available. Usually visit area 3-4 times a year. When not staying in rental cabin we always stay at La Quinta.

The hot tub and pool were very nice. The workout facility was also filled with nice equipment. Staff was great and the Breakfast was excellent. However we had to dance around dogs to go anywhere. They are a pet friendly facility. A guest left there dog locked in the bathroom a floor below us and it howled all day. My... More

The hotel nice and friendly environment. We did have a person with us that had some allergies to pets. I think there should be some rooms set aside for pet owners and non pet. Since I found stuff(old chips) on the floor, I know the floor was not vacuumed well and her alergy could have been prevented a little more.... More

We took our grandchildren there for a ski trip. The pool was freezing cold. My granddaughter said the hall smelled of urine. The breakfast was average. We had requested extra pillows which is a health issue for one of our family members, they were not provided. On a positive note the young man at the desk was very nice and... More

Every thing like new. Nice people in front desk, plenty space in rooms. The only bad thing was the Pool and SPA were closed one day for some problem with a lamp. Unfortunately for me, was the day I most wanted to be in the SPA after a ski day.
