The hotel was good, but not great. In the upper middle level of quality. I stay in a lot of different hotels, I will use this one again. Location is easily accessible and centrally located. The bathroom did have an off smell.

Room was clean, staff was friendly, and they accept pets. We enjoyed it, and will stay here again. The only thing I did not enjoy was being right off Hywy 70, and walking entrance into the forest. The pool was nice, and we even utilized the weight room.

We have stayed at this hotel many times and have always found the rooms very clean and well maintained to be very good. The breakfast is always hot and delicious. The front desk staff and cleaning ladies are very polite and helpful. We really appreciate La Quinta's pet policy at other stays and locations.

Selected this property because the AARP rate was excellent under $90 for each night of a 2 night stay. The location was right in the heart of Ruidoso, so easy access to the locations I wanted to visit during my stay. Upon arrival the driveway had pot holes and pieces of the cement were coming up. Was concerned that the... More

We spent two nights in Ruidoso and chose this hotel because it is pet-friendly. Our little chihuahua was welcomed, too! We had a nice clean room and big bathroom with plenty of linens. We had a room with 2 queen beds which was nice, but it also only had one desk chair, so we couldn't comfortably sit on a second... More

Hotel is showing its age. Wi-fi service is slow and not very fast when working. Room was clean, temperature was appropriate for summer. Bathroom and fixtures showing wear. Carpet in room is showing age. Overall, an average hotel.

We planned a very last minute weekend trip and was thrilled we were able to bring our 2 dogs with us. We usually don't vacation with our dogs however the kennel we normally leave them at was booked up. Thankfully, LQ is pet friendly and does not charge anything additionally. I was pleased they had a pet spot to take... More
