5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Great service, comfortable rooms and beautiful views. We plan to return. We stayed in the two bed with a kitchen cabin. Pet friendly is a plus! The owners were very accommodating and the cleaning service lady was very nice. Love love loved it here!

My husband and I have stayed at West Winds many times. The owners, Tony and Vicky, do everything they can to provide excellent service and a friendly atmosphere. We've rented condos when family and friends join us and lodge rooms when we are by ourselves. We've been very pleased with all of our accommodations. The rooms are clean, the price is reasonable, and it is in easy walking distance to downtown stores. We highly recommend West Winds Lodge and Condos!!

We get down to Ruidoso each year to go to the races at Ruidoso Downs. West Winds is a very nice place on a quiet street with lush landscaping along the borders to give you the feeling that you are almost in the woods. The motel is well maintained and clean. We often stay in the room with two queens and a small kitchenette. The later comes in handy for that late evening beer out on the small patio. The beds are a bit soft so stay in the room with the two queens. The owners are always pleasant and helpful.. You always get a kind welcome. We will definitely stay here again. A big bonus are the reasonable prices and easy to use website.

Room Tip: We have stayed in rooms 12 and 14 which are roomy and quiet.

Stayed here the weekend of my nieces wedding. It was a really great stay. This place is not perfect. It is old, but the owners have kept it looming good and clean. Tbe paint jobs aren't perfect, some of tbe cosmetic things are not perfect, but the owner and the location and all the necessities that are provided, are almost perfect. My family and I will be back. Aside from the over the top friendly service, it is clean, and well loved. If you are looking at reviews and aren't sure, you will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here.

Nestled in the tall pines we have stayed here several times over the past few years.....Every trip made to Ruidodo we stay here. The staff is so friendly and love the rooms also. Just a short walk into Midtown and the lodge has a porch swing outside the rooms to relax. After a day of gambling or shopping they have a wonderful pool and hot tub! Would definately recommend!

West Wind Lodge is the best place to stay in Ruidoso. Quiet, clean and yet walking distance to everything. Great indoor pool and the owners treat everyone like family. I've been staying here every summer for the last 10 years and I hope I can stay here 10 more. You will love it !!!!! Thanks, Joel
