Pet-friendly hotel, but our room did have a definite smell of animal when we walked in. Had to use air freshener to stay in room. Lobby furniture starting to look worn out and breakfast service not very appealing. However, one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in and the recliner in the room was really nice.

We used our accumulated points to stay for 1 night free at this location in Ruidoso. The friendliness of all staff definitely stood out. The cleanliness couldn't have been better. The staff person that was on at breakfast was attentive to keeping everything clean and all foods and condiments were kept well stocked.

Comfortable bed, super quiet, all clean. Had an issue with the TV & someone came right along & set it for us. Breakfast just fine, the usual mixture, with the usual excellent coffee. Beautiful view of the mountains from our window.

With the reviews I read on tripadvisor, I was disappointed and you probably will be too. The first impression when you walk into the lobby is ok - but you immediately are greeted with heavily worn furniture (a sofa and love seat with the pleather worn completely through). Front desk staff was friendly enough and and after check in, I... More

the type of bed was not stated correctly. It stated in the ad that it was a king size sleeper sofa when actually it was a king size pillow bed with a sleeper sofa. Overall the room was very nice except the tv was confusing as to how to operate. I liked the room layout

Stayed here 2 nights. Lobby looked new & contemporary. Check-in was easy & we received a good bag for being elite members. Staff members were friendly. Room was nice enough though the TV was very small. One caution if you are traveling with a dog, there is almost no grass around the hotel. Fortunately our dog doesn't care.

Good solid budget friendly hotel. Rooms were clean and nice, staff were sometimes hard to find. Maintenance shows up quickly to take care of a small issue. Lighting is odd in the way it is controlled, and not all electrical outlets work. Breakfast was good but not great. Pool had been drained earlier and so was extremely cold the first... More

The staff was so incredibly helpful. The front desk helped with every need. The room attendant helped us with our room despite the morning rush to get to the wedding. We forgot a tuxedo in our room's closet after we left and they called us. We were not too far away and were able to get back and pick it... More

We had excellent service, great room with AAA discount, nice pool, everything was as smooth a trip as we've ever had. Staff was so very friendly and helpful. The breakfast bar was very good and the weekend attendant was especially nice, went over and beyond to help us. It all made for a very pleasant 4 day stay for my... More

Management - please upgrade this property. 2nd floor is tired and run-down. Cracked tiles, the hall carpet needs stretching, and paper-thin walls. I've been all over world and never had such an experience. Next door to us, business guys hired a 'lady of the evening' and we heard everything. She thanked them and then they stayed up talking business. We... More
