“Secluded and Private but Central to Everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Awesome hotel and staff -- stayed second week in January, snow was so-so at Ski Apache, but the hotel staff was very accommodating. Had two dogs with us and we pretty much had the place to ourselves -- school just started back up so all the Christmas/New Years crowd had left. We let them run in the fenced in property behind the parking lot and really didn't have to worry about them running off. Maid service left us new towels every day (we didn't want them to have to deal with our high-strung weimeraner and his big brother). Only bad thing was the hot tub was broken, but they worked out a deal to let us use their sister hotel's swim facilities (indoor) just down the street. For the price and pet-friendly location, it can't be beat -- we'll be back for sure.

Friendly, helpful staff. Competitive prices and GREAT hot breakfast. Convenient to everything Ruidoso has to offer. O.utside room entry may be an issue for some but the courtyard side should be requested

Outstanding place to stay away from the mess of downtown Ruidoso but still just a short, convenient drive away. Loved it. Room was comfortable and warm even though it was freezing and snowy outside. Staff was excellent.

Stayed here over Thanksgiving. The staff could not have been more courteous or accomodating.

Breakfast offered a great variety and quality.

Rooms were large and clean.

Grounds were beautiful and emmaculatey keeped.

The minor annoyances that go with an older project were far over-shadowed by the sincere effort of the staff to be of service.

My dog "Dog" and I stayed at the Best Western Pine Springs Inn Ruidoso Down and it was a wonderful place. Dog was welcomed and enjoyed exploring the beautiful grounds in the pines. Our room was very comfortable, spacious and beautiful. Both of us were comfortable and right at home. Every area was clean and beautiful. The breakfast was delicious and there were dog treats at the front desk. Everyone was very helpful and polite making us welcomed in every way. We will definiely stay again. We had been on the road for seven days and had stayed in three other places before coming to Ruidoso on our way home from Colorado, this was one of our favorite places, we didn't want to leave. We enjoyed sight seeing and shopping while there, the location was great because we were away from traffic since we were nestled in the pines up away from the highway. We even ran into an old friend while in Ruidoso, over all this was a highlight of our travels home.

This is a beautiful little hotel done two story motel style with a large covered deck and nicely landscaped grounds. They had several ground floor handicapped rooms. The rooms are large and comfortable with frig , coffemaker and micro, soft towels and everything was very clean and well maintained. The beds were firm with pillowtops, Very good hot breakfast with eggs, sausage and bacon, bisquits and sausage gravy, belgian waffles, breads and pastries, cereal, fruit salad and fresh fruit, juice and coffee. It is a pet friendly hotel with plenty of room for running and even dog bisquits at the front desk. It is located directly across and up the hill from Ruidoso Downs. I found it a very good value for the money and it is convenient to everything in Ruidoso with access from either direction.
