This review includes references from the research I should've done before my stay: Hope it helps you make a better choice because there are plenty better! - I ended up here because just like the review from 9JAN2015 I attempted to stay at the good venue and got redirected to this place. - Filth; yes!

We appreciate all feedback, so thank you for that. We would invite all guests to look at the numerous 5 star reviews made since we finished renovations three months ago. This cabin had the living room, kitchen and bath renovated and has been a hit with our other guests. Also, we have only owned Upper Canyon Inn for six months... More

We only stayed one night at this lovely lodge, i wish we could have stayed more! I am not plotting how i can go back for a birthday visit. We stayed in the lodge-the single downside was our room was upstairs. Our choice, we knew it, just was not optimal for us. Our room had a sitting are behind a... More

I booked the Upper Canyon Inn several months ago to round up our 2 week vacation in Colorado. We decided to travel through Ruidoso NM on our way home to Texas. Online this place appears to be the perfect little getaway. Not so!! After an 8 1/2 hour drive from Bayfield Co. we really just wanted to rest. We found... More

First, thank you for your review. We want to hear both the good and the bad. We apologize for the sheets being stained. Our manager looked at them and did find what appeared to be a water spot, so you were correct, we missed that. We also apologize for bringing the incorrect sheets the first time. It seems that when... More

My husband and I recently enjoyed one of the Upper Canyon Inn's first floor rooms. We shared an immaculate, delightful room surrounded by tall evergreens, in a quiet canyon close to the center of Ruidoso. Very comfortable king-sized bed, and ample leather recliners to stretch out and enjoy. We also appreciated the convenience of a refrigerator, microwave and two-burner stove,... More

We decided last minute to celebrate our anniversary in Ruidoso. We stayed in Lodge #7. It was very clean, updated and comfortable. Outside of each room is a cute seating area where you can overlook neighboring cabins and a small stream. The only complaint I might give is the road noise since the Lodge is close to a main road....

So glad that you enjoyed our lodge. We recently renovated the rooms and reading your words makes us happy and grateful for guests like you. The road is close, which, as you said, is great for getting in and out of town, but you do get some noise during the day.. Of course, as the evening comes things quiet down... More

Decided to take my family to Ruidoso for a few days during spring break. Read many reviews and settled on Upper Canyon Inn. Check in took less that 5 minutes.

As it being our 5th Anniversary we wanted to stay somewhere nice and cozy. Cabin #15 & #16 are the nicest and most luxury. We stayed in #15, it was so cute and very nice wood working throughout the cabin. The mattress was a little too hard for us but we are use to a super soft mattress. However, that... More

We stayed in room #3 in the lodge. It was a lick-and-a-promise clean, but base boards, doors and door ways needed to be cleaned. One dinning room chair was broken.

Stayed in Cabin 11 which really was a duplex but had a pleasant night stay and never heard the neighbors. Very convenient location and easy to find. It's dated on the inside but a decent 2-bedroom with kitchen area.
