This hotel is so cute that I can not even describe it. It is an older building, but it is so well kept and has so much character that it is far superior to new hotels I have stayed in.
SAUNA --They have a sauna. My husband and I went and tried it out. It is a barrel shaped sauna made of cedar wood. It smells fantastic and feels so relaxing. I thought it was way better than any hot tub!! We were apprehensive about trying the sauna, but we just swim-suited up, turned it on so it could heat up and went in. You pour water over the heater with rocks in the back and it steams and feels wonderful.
ROOM -- The room was super cute. It is a small room, but when your on vacation, you don't need to carry a ton of stuff with you. I DO NOT pack light, and I was still able to fit everything in the room with no problems. Plus they provide you with a microwave, coffee maker, and fridge in every room!!
NOISE LEVEL-- This hotel is on one of the main roads in Ruidoso, and yet in the room it is so peaceful. We stayed multiple nights and when there was noise in the hotel, it was because of a very disrespectful group who made a ton of noise at 1:00a.m. Otherwise, you can hear the traffic when in the little yard they have out front, but it is not bothersome.
BATHROOM -- So clean. I am really grossed out by bathrooms, but this one did not bother me at all.
EXTRAS -- They provide home made muffins every morning. There is no smoking allowed (which is great!). There are notices in the room that you have to be quiet between the hours of 9:00pm and 8:00am to respect others at the hotel. I think this is a great policy! They have free WiFi and cable!!
OVERALL -- My husband and I plan on making this a regular vacation spot. The owners are very lovely and accommodating. The prices are more than reasonable. It feels homey. Visit this hotel and definitely use the sauna!! (PS, they do not have a pool, but the sauna is so much better!)
