The Sitzmark Chalet Inn, Your Home Away From Home, is nestled under the tall pines of Ruidoso, New Mexico. Our charming 17 unit inn offers the distinct personal attention that every traveler desires for a relaxing mountain get-a-way. Our regard to detail and customer service is something that you just can't acquire in a chain lodging atmosphere. We are located one mile south of Mid-Town Ruidoso, close to restaurants, hiking and skiing, historic sites, shopping, and nightlife. Relax on the front lawn during a summer evening on a porch swing while watching the hummingbirds, or unwind after a day on the slopes in our unique outdoor barrel sauna. All guest rooms are spotlessly clean, feature wifi, direct TV, private baths, microwave ovens, refrigerators, coffee makers and Dohm sleep sound machines. Each morning guests are treated to fresh coffee and muffins in our lobby. Ask about our new Romance Package. We'll be celebrating 60 years in 2019! We look forward to welcoming you to our inn!

We were looking to spend a night in the mountains after a week in the desert. I figured it's one night, and the suite wasn't much more than the other rooms--- I'll go for it. At check in, the nicest woman mentioned that our room was available the next night too----"eh, we'll see.....one night is fine." A minute later I was back downstairs booking that second night! The room was off the charts. 2 comfy queen beds, a table with 4 chairs, a separate conversation pit near the tv, a wet bar with glass glasses, swank toiletries AND a personal sun porch with another table. Dang! All done up in southwestern style. There's a barrel sauna out front too. It's about a mile 1/2 walk to the center of main st. Very rainy when we were there, but we drove to the Billy the kid sites and the smokey the bear place. Both totally worth it. Wish I remembered the names of the 2 women who worked while I was there--they were great people . Kick ass sign and bigfoot too! A place like this is why we travel. Loved it!

Sweet place with warm and friendly staff. We were impressed with the charm, atmosphere, cleanliness, and comfort. But my favorite surprise was the white-noise machine in the room. How thoughtful! Location was on a main street and close to the shopping area. We really enjoyed our stay.

Five stars!!! Everything was fresh and clean. Fresh delicious muffins and coffee were there daily at 7:30am. The outside sitting areas invite conversation and the sanuna is perfect to soothe sore muscles. Ample towele are provided to each room, as well as soap, lotion and shampoo. The lady at from desk is a wealth of info for dining, and outdoor activities. She will make you feel like part of the family. She has a library of books. You can check the books out too. Most exciting to us were the wild horses that hung out near the hotel that day. They wee in front of Comfort Suites The colts entertained the crowd gathered as they rared up at each other and played chase. Hats off to the Ruidoso police for closely ‘. guarding the people while also guarding the elk, deer, and wild horses that come to town. The mama horses are keeping their young safe by coming into town, and keeping them away from predators .we had the time of our lives watching the families of horses.They bonded with humans too! Wish someone could adopt them. They would make wowderful pets.

First of all, I would just like to add my voice to all the nice comments. This is a wonderfully cozy, comfortable and friendly inn. The team really takes customer service to a higher level; they cannot do enough for you. A well kept, comfortable room made our stay in this beautiful area a real holiday. Decor is thoughtful, with pine log beds, South Western bed spreads and all spotlessly clean. Air conditioning kept the room cool and comfortable. The bbq (natural gas) were a real plus; we cooked on them every night. Muffins available every morning, along with coffee and hot chocolate. A very convenient location as well. Standards of cleanliness and housekeeping were tip top. On top of all these plus points was the great value for money. We highly recommend staying here. Thank you.

We spent almost a week here in April. Room was comfortable with microwave and refrigerator. As one commentator said, room could use better lighting, but lighting was adequate and everything else was so good that this was easily overlooked. Bathroom had large shower with fresh smelling soaps and thick towels. Room windows opened to a shaded courtyard with picnic tables, several benches and other seating areas that we enjoyed plus a sauna that looked good, too.. Every morning, 3 types of freshly made muffins and high quality flavorful coffee were available in the lobby area. Staff were all pleasant. Parking lot was very convenient for access to our room. Inn decor was unique, pleasant with a ski emphasis. Bonus: prices were reasonable, windows opened to a pleasant hallway and outside, and inn had a great ice machine. We would choose this Inn again.

This was a very nice stay in a comfortable room. It is rustic but has a lot of charm. They have a sauna that was very nice to use. They also have fresh ground coffee and fresh baked muffins for breakfast. The lady who checked us in resides there and was very nice and helpful about taking a scenic route to White Sands.

Loved this charming hotel. The room could use better lighting but other than that it was well appointed an comfortable. My grandson lost a tech item and hotel staff found the item, called me and then mailed it to me. Excellent customer service which unfortunately is rare these days.

I have been coming to Ruidoso for many decades and I have found the Sitzmark Chalet Inn to be my favorite place to stay, a lot of things have come and gone over the years but it is nice to see the Chalet has kept its original vibe intact. I guess I am partial to the feeling of the swiss alpine decor, and my love for snow skiing in the mountains, it truly captures that cozy warm cottage serenity. I have always been met with a kind smile from the staff and owners, the rooms are comfortable and the location is perfect for experiencing the magic of Ruidoso.

A family member recommended Sitzmark after it was featured on a travel show. It was so cute, clean and very cozy. They also offer homemade muffins and great coffee in the mornings. I hope I have another chance to visit Ruidoso soon. Highly recommend a stay here!!

Jennifer was awesome. The best customer service ever. Lemon water and coffee with muffins every morning. We had a nice upstairs room with fireplace. Of course cable TV and wifi. Outdoor sauna. This place has been in business since 1959. We love history. Very old black and white photos on the walls going up the stairs.
