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.

Yes they are remodeling. It disappoints me that there is so much concern by others in their reviews while this is going on. They need to stay in the low budget places and maybe they would be happier. We had an excellent room , very clean and comfortable. Arian Anderson ,front desk clerk , makes first impression of another wonderful... More

I had booked a room a couple of weeks before I stayed at this hotel. The ratings were decent but there had been no mention about the remodeling. A few days before I stayed at the hotel, I noticed some negative posts regarding the construction so I called the hotel and was assured that there is no construction on the... More
