During Horse Racing season, the prices in Ruidoso get real high. Keep that in mind. We had a rewards program that helped a lot in the cost department.
The hotel was clean, quiet and has an excellent location for walking the "shopping" area of Ruidoso. A decent TV, a micorwave and a refrigator are nice. You don't go to Ruidoso to hang around the hotel, thus nothing really special about the rooms. However, beds were comfortalbe and you never felt rushed. The free breakfast was solid as well.
I would stay there again.
