Very clean motel inside and out. The staff was very kind throughout the entire visit. The breakfast was of various selections. There was always a snack available in the evenings at the front desk. The rooms were always clean and well stocked.

I had tried in vain to find a pet friendly hotel in Ruidoso when one non-pet-friendly accommodation suggested that I try La Quinta. I arrived on a rainy night tired and frazzled from the drive and was greeted by the nicest young lady who immediately made me feel very welcome. I was traveling with three falcons and a hawk, all...

This is a great La Quinta with a great staff. I always stay at the La Quinta in Ruidoso Downs because I know it will be clean, fresh and the staff is so friendly. This is the best La Quinta that I've found in my travels.

My family and I stayed at this property about 2 years ago and it was very clean. It appears to be starting to become the lesser. It is still a nice establishment, but you there are certain things that are noticeably different. Hopefully management will pick up on these and right the wrongs. Overall, it's not a bad place, it's... More

The iron and ironing board should be replaced. They are dirty and torn. The iron stained a shirt while trying to iron. There was black on the heating plate of the iron and it transfered to my husbands shirt. I haven't been able to get it out

Nice hotel in a nice town. I've found La Quintas to be hit and miss, but this was one of the nicer ones. It was fairly close to downtown Riodoso by car, the lobby was very nice, and the rooms were clean. The breakfast was okay, but I would stay here again.

The staff was very kind. The bedskirt was dirty and the sheets were clean but stained. A handle was off the closet and was lying on the counter. We gave it to someone in the hall with the cleaning staff & she said she'd get maintenance. Three days later it was still not fixed. The bathroom was still dirty after... More

Easy to find and get to. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The staff was helpful and pleasant. Have stayed here before and will do so again. The motel is located near the race tack, not far from downtown Ruidoso and it is absurd that more words are needed that is necessary to describe this property. I think I... More

My family of 3.5 stayed just after Christmas. It is one of our favorite La Quinta Inns. The pool is a gray feature out spending the day in the snow! The staff was awesome! I could not have asked for more. In fact we are currently planning our trip for next year definitely on the list is this hotel!!

Great place to stay. We always stay at La Quinta when we can and recommend it to anyone traveling. Their rooms are always large and roomy and the service is A-1. We always eat breakfast and the food is always good and hot and excellent. We like La Quinta very very much and do recommend the hotel to anyone who... More
