“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We (two adults and a 13 yr old)just returned back from our ski trip to Ruidoso. I had booked originally a double queen bedroom using AAA. After arriving at the lodge wanted to check out King Studio suite. Steve- the GM who was managing the front-desk at that time give us the access to check out both the rooms. We then decided to take the King Studio suite and then he upgraded us to King one bedroom suite. The room is spacious and has a balcony which over looked the snow covered courtyard. As others said the lobby is a place to meet.. We loved the fireplace in the courtyard. The only gripe I have is that the room A/C (in our case heater) noise is a little loud. Would highly recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Do not choose a room next to the pool. If they are many kids in the pool you can hear their exciteme...

Never having visited Ruidoso, I did a lot of research before choosing The Lodge at Sierra Blanca. It met or exceeded all of my expectations.

The lobby is a beautiful, upscale, lodge type setting with comfortable seating areas, fireplaces, and a bar in the evening. The outdoor patio has a fire pit and seating areas in the evening.

We had a King Bedroom Suite and were very happy. The rooms have full kitchens, fireplace, large jacuzzi hot tub, and a private balcony.

The staff working at the front desk was always helpful and friendly.

The breakfast was a special treat all in itself. It is a FULL breakfast with pancakes and/or waffles, sausage and/or bacon, hash browns, cereals, breads, juices, made to order omeletes, and much more. It is nothing like the 'free breakfast' that you will find at many 3 star hotels. It is more like a breakfast that you will find at a fine bed & breakfast... or a nice sit-down restaurant. The seating area for the breakfast is in a cozy area with a beautiful view.

For the money, it also is a great deal. You won't find any better place for a similar amount of money.

If you are not sure where to stay... stay here.

Loved the king room. When we had an issue at checkout, the manager quickly remedied the problem. We really enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub. It was very relaxing after a long day of skiing. I would definitely stay here again! Although the mountain only had three lifts open, skiing was still great!

We decided to stay in Ruidoso to relax during a road trip and had stayed at this hotel before. When we called to make the reservation the woman at the desk was very helpful and even told us about a special that we were unaware of - so got a great price! The hotel is large and in a beautiful part of town on a golf course and next to the convention center. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. Our room had a kitchenette. Parking is plentiful and free. Nice indoor pool and guest laundry. They serve a full hot breakfast with a made-to-order omelet station. It is close to the shopping and restaurants but not in the middle of the traffic and bustle. We would definitely stay there again.

The Lodge was nicely appointed. A bit dated but well maintained. Service was good but limited. Fair value. Breakfast was an extra treat unexpected. Free parking. Try to get a room with a balcony if possible. Tv's needs updating aswell. The indoor pool is nice and gym.

The hotel was very nice. It took a little whole to get someone at the front desk at check in, but I think most of the employees were working the Octoberfest event. Room was very nice. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to friends. Hopefully next time we will be able to stay for more than one night.

We arrived at Lodge at at Sierra Blanca, our room was ready and we had a view of the golf course (rm 217). We went exploring around the hotel and found a message room. Patty booked us on the spot and boy did she blow us away. She worked knots out I didn't know I had. I love to workout and she showed me great stretches to get warmed up. She is very professional and you can tell she knows and loves her craft. She has a little ball of heaven in those hands.
If you are ever in the area look her up and book a massage with Patty @ 5759372304. The prices are reasonable: 1 hr is $75 from 9am-5pm, mon-sat; after hours begin at $90 til 8 pm; after 8pm prices begin at $110.
The free breakfast was great...a little something for everyone. I recommend a stay if you want peace, relaxation, and great hospitality. We will def come again and i can't wait to utilize Patty's great skills again. I don't play golf but our view of the golf course showed it was very popular so be advised those room does get the golf corse and patio noise. With the tv on the noise is easily drowned out. And if its winter I'm sure not many ppl will be on the golf course or patio. Bottom line great location, 10 into town and great stay for the price. What are you waiting for book your stay NOW!!?
