We decided on Thursday to travel to Ruidoso on Friday. I called The Lodge at Sierra Blanca and they had plenty of availability to accommodate our last minute travel plans.
The Lodge was easy to find and was beautiful on the outside, with a surrounding golf course. The resort is also located next to the convention center.
Our room was nice and clean. There were signs of some wear but definately not a show stopper. The beds are comfortable and we had a great view of the back patio and golf course. At night a fire would be built in the middle of the courtyard so we had that as our nighttime view.
The hotel offers a complimentary cooked to order breakfast (very similar to the Embassy Suites breakfast) and the dining area has large pictureesque windows to view the golf course and the mountains.
The indoor pool / hot tub area was clean with large windows / doors to view the back patio / mountains while you are swimming or sitting in the hot tub. The ceiling in the pool room had some bubbles in, which could mean some damage at some time, but i didn't see how it affected the pool - at this time. The paint job in that room was not great, but again, didn't affect our stay or what I thought overall of the property.
This is not a large property (3 floors) and is well maintained. The resort does not have a restaurant but is also not far from dining establishments.
Plenty of deer spotted near the resort - very enjoyable to watch wildlife in their natural habitat.
If I had to say anything negative about this establishment is that not all of the front desk staff were friendly. It is something that stood out, but it wouldn't prevent me from staying here again.
