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.

While on my best of NM trip, I spent a night at the LQ in Ruidoso Downs. The price tag for the evening was exceptionally high, but I didn't have it in me to drive 3 more hours to my next stop. It was your typical LQ hotel, but this one is set in a ski town. My only complaint... More

This hotel is clean and comfortable and a great place for children. It has an indoor pool and hot tub and is very advantageously situated in town for all activities. Ruidoso is an active city with much to do in shopping, craft fairs, Funtrackers for kid activities. We go for horseback riding and Grindstone stables is not far away to... More

Great hotel. Clean and quiet and the suites are GIANT. Many La Quintas on our 10000 mile trek and this maybe the best . Melissa at the front desk at check in was awesome. Ruidoso New Mexico is a superb destination. We choose La Quinta because of our dog AND the hotels are great . Oh and Blue Oyster Cult... More

We've stayed in the king suite several times. A little pricy, but definitely worth it. Not much of a view, but the room is very spacious and clean. The breakfast is great and the staff are always helpful. We love coming to Ruidoso and we stay here about half the time.

This is the best place we have stayed in years--even considering higher priced hotels! The staff is extremely accommodating--the place is well managed and it reflects in the operations and the condition of the hotel. We were traveling with 2 dogs and it was just a refreshing experience to be so welcomed here.
