We stayed here on Labor Day Weekend, a very busy time for Ruidoso. All the hotel prices are inflated on that weekend, and it is hard to find a room. My husband booked the room (through a different site). When we arrived, the desk clerk tried to charge him about $150 more than the amount on the reservation. Fortunately, my...

The room was reasonable in size, and the pillow-top bed was very comfortable, but there was NO dresser, NO hair drier, NO bed-side light. The large LCD TV worked flawlessly and the on-screen TV guide was outstanding. The overhead lighting was excellent. The free breakfast was better than average. The overall value was good, and we would likely stay here...

Better to sleep in your car or pay an over inflated hotel price than stay here! I am very serious. Don't stay here! No table lamps...Internet did not connect..only 3 huge overhead lights...a/c unit in the bathroom. OMG!

Don't be fooled like I was. I made the reservation on-line and the pictures shown of the rooms are totally fake! I reserved a room based on the pictures I saw on-line for the price of $79.99. When I got there, I got a room that was very small, it had a full bed instead of the queen size in...

Stayed here for Valebtine's Day and was very happy to have found a room because this town is always booked. The staff was friendly and although the price was lower than some places, this hotel is still run down BUT the bed is to DIE FOR!! Super nice and comfortable! Overall a small average hotel. Noise between rooms a factor

Service was terrible, office door was locked every morning during "free breakfast hours", had to wake staff up just to get a cup of coffee, not once during our week stay was any breakfast offered. The room to small for two beds, dirty old bed coverings, old broken furniture. Quoted one price charged another, the short of it look else...

This hotel is a dump. You have to charge through the door to get in. It has a little swamp cooler and an old school wall heater. The cooler is too small to cool the room. The night stand is an old chair with a phone so old it has turned a dingy yellow brown. There is no lamps anywhere...

Our room was remodeled except for carpet. Your add list $50 a night, they tried to charge us $80 and we told them no we would just go somewhere else. They asked what we would pay for the room, we said no more than $60. So we stayed. No coffee pots and no chairs in rooms.

I'm not the type to write a review but when you pay over $70 for a room you expect things like internet, a plug for the tug & a floor that doesn't shake so bad your downstairs neighbors are yelling at your three little kids for walking to the bathroom :-( Weak signal followed by my phone & laptop won't...
