The Inn is pretty, just pretty, from the artwork to the grounds and all areas in between. Had a quick dinner from the snack bar set up in a hallway, very convenient. The casino, although smoke allowed, doesn't seem that smoky to me, fun place for me to make my donation the first night. Returned for a second visit and had dinner in one of the cafes. Excellent food. Overall, I think it is a must do place in Ruidoso.
