We plan a trip to the Inn at least once a year. Love it... The hotel is beautiful, the grounds well kept. The lake view is so peaceful and relaxing, a morning cup of coffee on the balcony, watching ducks swimming by, the crisp mountain air.... Priceless. The casino is typical of any Las Vegas casino.... Some days good, some...

Booked this hotel for 149.99 per night and noticed when I received the confirmation it was a mountain view king smoking room. Rebooked at a Superior room with a lake view for 179.99 per night. The next week I noticed on the web page that the non-smoking king mountain room was now available for 149.99. Called them, as you can't...

Should be experienced if you are in this part of NM. Inn is located in a rural area on the Mescalero Apache Reservation. The scenery is spectacular, especially on the drive there and from the lobby. Rooms are reasonably priced, clean, nice Native American decor. Friendly, helpful staff. Wendel's Restaurant is a bit pricey but the food is excellent. Buffet...

My wife and I attended a concert there recently - Wynonna Judd. She was great. However, my other observations were: Resort staff very slow to seat - not too organized. Cigarette smoke in the area from the casino on the other end of the resort. The 2 big screens were usually shots of Wynonna at somewhat of a distance so...

Beautiful location. Clean but overpriced.Food at buffet was mediocre. Went to 2 concerts at resort over weekend and their method for seating you is slow and disorganized. Husband says casino was excellent with mostly good dealers. At checkout my bill was messed up royally. We were way overcharged and at 6:15 am it took 30 minutes to get it corrected....

I have stayed here and played (mostly poker) here many times. it's an incredible natural setting, uniquely beautiful, rooms are wonderful, service is as well. Lots of different selections for restaurant, quick snacks, etc. The casino space is limited by comparison to some of the larger casinos, but easily accommodates whatever kind of gambling you might like. The poker room...

We stayed there as part of a large wedding party. Hotel is beautifully furnished beside a small lake used for guest water activities. When I booked my room my confirmation paper had mountain view room. When I asked about it I was told there were no more although we checked in early enough to be given the room I was...

We traveled to Ruidoso for some down time and fun. The Hotel was very clean and quiet! We enjoyed our stay so very much. The gambling was great! We even came home with more money than we brought! (and you can't say that to often!) The staff was very friendly and helpful! Thanks for a great weekend!

Great room ,large, great view! beautiful hotel and grounds. Great buffet. Would stay there every time in area. Casino fun. Didn't lose much money. Peaceful. Did day trips from there. Nice central point for area. Lots to see. Staff could have been a little friendlier, but just did our own thing and enjoyed ourselves.
