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.

Nothing special, clean rooms, competent staff all in all a decent stay. We kept tripping on badly installed carpet in hall (large ripple in carpet), was a problem for my 82 year old Mom. If going to pool go later the children we loud & unruly, staff turned a blind eye to this problem.

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
