“Good value, clean room, Pets welcome!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

The Travelodge in Ruidoso is an OK overnighter. If you're skiing and aren't doing much in the room except sleeping then this is a good bet. Rooms are clean, the place is being updated with fresh paint and carpet. The comp breakfast is like most that you see now. Waffles, cereal, etc. The location is not obvious. It sits behind the K-Bob's Steakhouse(run! stay away from this place!) at the "Y" leading into the Village. It is actually relatively quiet because it is tucked away somewhat. Overall the Travelodge is an OK spot in Ruidoso. They accept pets with absolutely no problem, unlike Hotel Ruidoso.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side, away from the highway. Turn on the AC upon entering the room for so...

Room and staff were fantastic. Breakfast was virtually nonexistent. Totally disappointing to everyone, I'm sure. I would have to really consider whether to stay at a Travelodge again.

Booked 2 nights at this property over a holiday weekend. The property signage is marked, but the hotel is not so easily seen from the road as another business is prominent in front and retails stores are on the side. Rooms looked like they do on the website and were priced well compared to what other properties were charging per night. The manager was friendly and helpful with services, and he and the desk staff on duty were committed to being attentive and generating a good experience. The housekeeping staff was not as friendly at times as they seemed more committed to getting rooms turned over quickly from the start of the day. The breakfast line-up was suitable, and the lobby eating area was often full of other guests with some competition for the waffle maker at times. Could tell the management attempted to generate a higher quality of comfort with the beds and decor, but a few things like the curtain rod was in need of repair to work and could use maintenance while the bath had an overlay of updated trim over poor paint jobs and a structure that could use a bit of a gut and replace. Sleep was surprisingly easy given the comfortable beds and that the property sits off the main drag; yet on work day mornings, the traffic does resonate well into the road-facing rooms. Also, we had a connecting room, and our neighbors were up late and in and out from partying, and their noise was not blocked out too well between rooms. Price and breakfast with some updated room features were the draw in booking and staying at this property; management made the stay seem like being guests of theirs with interest in a good experience. Did not visit a fitness center if there was one.

Room Tip: Room on the back side (parking lot side) could be quieter; rooms on the courtyard side are neighborl...

While it might look like an older "dumpy" looking hotel, the rooms were actually very clean and comfortable and we enjoyed our stay there. The rooms were clean, the beds and pillows were very comfortable and everything worked fine. The rooms have a mini-fridge and microwave and the only negative is that the fridge froze everything we put in it. We were there during frigid weather and the ac unit kept our room nice and heated. Another negative is that the hotel lobby breakfast area is very tiny with only 3 tables. My husband attempted to try breakfast there one morning and was discouraged because it was super crowded so he had breakfast elsewhere the remainder of our stay. Bummer because the fact they served a continental breakfast was a main reason for booking there. Overall, if you're not a breakfast person, this was a decent place to stay. An family steak house restaurant is located just a few feet away for another meal choice, and the prices were very economical.
