We spent two nights here in the King suite. Very spacious and comfortable. It was nice to relax there after exploring the area. Large breakfast area was nicely laid out and restocked. Friendly personnel to us and our dog.

Because we travel with a pet, we've seen the inside of several La Quintas. Our king suite had plenty of privacy (traveling with kids too). One of the best layouts we've stayed in. The sofa bed was in poor shape, but an excellent alternative to the more expensive options in Ruidoso- especially when traveling with a pet!

We absolutely love staying at the LQ here in Ruidoso, NM. The place is really nice. Clean. The staff are very friendly and enjoyable to chat with. I would recommend this hotel over any in town. My kids love the pool and of course the cookies they set out at night. We really enjoy the hot breakfast in the morning.... More

Great hotel to stay in to go to ski Apache. The location is makes it close to all the Ruidoso attractions and easy to get in and out fast. The parking lot was snow and ice free after the huge blizzard after Christmas.

Our stay was pleasant for the most part but when it came to breakfast there were so many people there that we had to wait over 20 minutes just to have a chance to make waffles. The scrambled eggs were so obvious that they were not real :( I highly suggest 1 to 2 more waffle makers and some real... More

We enjoyed our stay at this La Quinta !! Max at the front desk always had a wonderful smile and attended to all our needs. We stay at La Quinta often because we travel with our dog. This by far is one of the best we have stayed at. Clean rooms, comfortable beds and great service. We will definitely stay... More

Very good stay with family for one night, breakfast area crowded understandably. Room was clean, housekeeping never got back to room after check-in to install bed covers. Sheets and pillows were clean, beds a little soft for my frame, but comfortable.

Thanks for the wonderful stay at La Quinta Ruidoso Downs. The staff made my wife, puppy, and I feel like royalty. Food was amazing; accommodations were plush and exceeded our expectations for this hotel. It's been renovated since we last stayed and is a MUCH better value. We'll be back. :)

I enjoyed the La Quinta in Ruidoso. It is going through some remodeling and it is looking great. My room was a large suite with high ceilings and was very comfortable. The food was very good and the staff was outstanding! Whenever I stay in Ruidoso I will be saying at this hotel.

Was too tired to return home on a day trip to Ruidoso and was glad for La Quinta They took great care in getting me and my friend a room. I have a service dog that is with all the times. And they had no problem helping me get in a room and getting me set up. Thank you so... More
