This is a great place to stay if you are going to the Ruidoso Race Track with very clean rooms and comfortable beds. They served a full hot breakfast. The staff was very friendly and the hot cookies at the front desk hit the spot. Rooms located on the back side of the hotel are the quietest.

First of all, the staff is very nice and helpful. We felt welcomed by everyone. Love the pet friendliness of this hotel and the location. The lack of attention to the physical details of this property was very surprising. The buckling carpet in the hallways, cracked and broken floor tiles in bathroom, and the feeling of unstable flooring leads me... More

As usual, the staff was very polite and welcoming. As for the room I was assigned, it was nice, well appointed and clean. The bed was extra comfortable and so was the arm chair. The main issue I had was with the very slow speed of the Internet connection (there is supposedly only one provider in Ruidoso thus there is... More

Great pet friendly experience; convenient to the Ruidoso Downs Race Track and Walmart; exceptional TV and Wi-Fi service; great beds; very clean, very good check-in experience; good, hot breakfast; good, functioning A/C. Back of the building is the quietest of most major hotels/motels, with a distant view of only a mountain.

We stayed at this hotel back in 2011 when it won several top awards within the La Quinta brand hotel chain. All I can say is, man what three years of seemingly severe neglect can do. From the rolling carts having flat and torn tires awaiting a law suit; to carpet in every hallway buckled and uneven this hotel is... More

Friendly efficient personnel in all departments. Clean well appointed room with queen beds. Nice pool and exercise area. Really good Bright Side breakfast with a hostess who was very cordial and helpful. Close to shopping, dining and downtown.
