Nice place, great location in town, really nice owners/managers. Very suprised at the upkeep given the date of the facility. Lots of things are dated, I don't think I had viewed a 19" tv with a tube in 10years. Very basic but gets the job done. Lots of kids there and adults drinking late at nite. So a bit noisy... More

Got in about 7pm, picked up my packet and key.... More

We stayed in a cabin which was very cozy. We have a dog and she was more than welcome there. We felt comfortable with leaving her alone in the cabin for 3-4 hours. While these are located off the main road, it was very peaceful and we felt very safe. My husband left his laptop outside on a bench while... More

If you are looking for a good experience while staying in Ruidoso STAY AWAY from West Winds Lodge!!! If I could leave zero stars for a rating I would, but since a single star is the lowest possible rating then that is what this place deserves. West Winds is EXTREMELY overpriced for the level of accomodations it provides. From checking... More

We've been coming here for years and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Ruidoso. Tony, Vicky, momma Teresa are the nicest people you will ever meet. Nice, clean rooms. close to town and easy to get to. If your planning a trip to Ruidoso stay here and don't look any further.

They had everything we needed for a nice relaxing vacation - pots, pans, dishes, dish soap, can opener - you name it! It was a great get away and the staff was always so friendly and accommodating. We will stay here every... More

Right in the middle of town, and walking distance from the shops. The owner was very friendly and made us feel welcome from the time we arrived till we left. His hospitality alone is enough to get us to come back. Very nice and comfortable rooms!

Pool not in service after being called on pool status. A/C not working, room did not cool down as fast as told w/ window fan. Perhaps poor service was caused by lack of patrons. hotel was older and room was very small. Hotel was clean but did not have individual soap for sink and shower. Sink had a pump style... More

Beds were comfortable had the memory foams. Everything was new and clean in the two bedroom lodge. The fresh air outside make it very pleasant to sleep with windows opened. The rooms looked recently remodeled. The pool and hot tub are great. It's walking distance to the Sanctuary on the river for a spa getaway. Lucy's cafe and several shopping... More
