The location is glorious! Views of Mescalero Lake and Sierra Blanca are breathtaking.
The golf course is challenging and visually stunning.
We have been to the Inn many times (we live in Ruidoso) but this was our first overnight. Check-in was no problem. We booked the King Standard- it was acceptable with a good bed and an oversized bathroom. Hotel hallway carpets need cleaning.
Wendell's and Wendell's Lounge, both service and food, are always excellent (and expensive). Big thumbs up to Wendell's Lounge Bartender Tammy! The Big Game Sports Bar inside the casino is usually crowded and understaffed, food is slightly below mediocre. Apache Tee is good but closes early.
The casino has enough bright, shiny lights and noisy slot machines to make us happy.This is not Las Vegas, why anyone would expect a Vegas mega-casino in rural New Mexico? if you want the Vegas experience you should probably go to Nevada.
