Felt right at home here! The owners are friendly and helpful. I initially thought this place was a Bed and Breakfast with the warm and tasty, homemade breakfast muffins (Cranberry Nut 😀 was yummy!)and hot coffee. The fireplace in the rooms was a nice extra bonus. Conveniently located near shopping and restaurants. When you go be sure to purchase some... More

We planned to stay at the Sitzmark while visiting Ruidoso for Ski Apache. While we were only at the hotel for a few hours a day (mostly to sleep), we very much enjoyed our stay. I was traveling with my girlfriend, sister, and brother-in-law so since we were two couples, we reserved 2 rooms. Everything was ready for us when... More

A cute, friendly place with reasonable rates. Clean rooms (a little outdated) but overall it was nice. Had what i needed and was in good repair. The owners are great and live on property. centrally located in town. Safe, quiet and a good value. Was fun to have an actual room key and not a card!

눇 This is a family owned inn with the feel of a home away from home. They keep it very clean (the way you would like your home to be). Todd and Lori are wonderful hosts, very welcoming, they took the time to show us the most important locations on the map, the best places to eat, and what to... More

Stayed here 1 night on a journey through New Mexico on the way to Colorado. We arrived after hours, but key was ready and we were able to pop in and head out to find some dinner on a Sunday night in Ruidoso. The bed was comfortable, the room was a nice size, even a standalone fireplace available (which although... More

I loved this place because it was so different from the usual economical motel. Decor was unique and clever. Bed was very comfortable and all amenities were first rate. Best of all was that it was spotlessly clean even though it is an older motel. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Only spent the one night here but enjoyed the cute revamped motel. The property is really kitchy with different outdoor seating that we took advantage of, with string lights and grills. If staying more than one night would have probably used the grill. The bed was okay, but the toilet was right up against the wall and the door opened... More

We stayed two nights while crossing the country. The price was right and the place although a bit dated was very very clean. The bed was comfy and had a fireplace which we didn't use. I like a room with a comfortable chair so my only complaint is the chairs were made for dining not sitting and watching TV.

Thank you for your recent review. We are glad that you found your room priced right and the bed comfortable. Two top points where we aim to please. We do wish the rooms had more area like a suite would where we could place a lounge chair. Unfortunately, we can't swap out the sled chairs for lounge chairs because they... More

One nice thing about a small hotel--one with only about 15 rooms for instance--is that the owners/staff feel personally invested in the property. Besides amenities like a whiskey barrel sauna available 24 hours a day, coffee in the rooms, and coffee and muffins in the mornings, along with a small library and swings in the garden area where we could...
