We spent the Christmas holidays in this awesome small Inn and it was a lot more than we expected. The owners treated me and my family great. We arrived like at 11am, about 5 hours before check in time and the room was ready by 12 and we were given the opportunity to check in early. The owners were very...

If you want a cozy, clean and wonderful place to stay I highly recommend the Sitzmark Chalet Inn. The owners go out of their way to make you feel at home. Shopping across the street at Tanner's is an absolute MUST. My husband stayed here for two weeks while we were renovating our home in Ruidoso. He checked in as...

Office staff couldn't have been nicer. They accommodated our late arrival and gave us great suggestions on restaurants and things to check out. The room was great and we enjoyed using the sauna. I will be staying there again in the future.

Very clean and cozy. We have traveled a lot and this place is one of the cleanest we have ever seen. They had a great fireplace in the room and provided the log to burn. Very charming. And close to everything fun in Ruidoso. They were also able to loan us a pack and play for our little guy when...

My kids and I planned this off the cuff trip and really didn't care what we got, we just wanted to see snow as we were tired of a Hot Texas Christmas. We found a deal online and booked the ski packages. I have stayed in luxury hotels across the world to single room cabins in the wilderness of Wyoming...

Undoubtedly the best place to stay when visiting Ruidoso. We've stayed in a number of cabins, etc. but none could match the quaintness and overall incredible experience we had while staying here at Stizmark.

I was a bit disappointed, but maybe the fact that it was between the summer tourist season and the winter ski season was the reason. We arrived with our reservation, and the office was locked. I had to phone the number on a sign to get someone to come check us in. At least he upgraded the room since there...

You are exactly right about it being the off season, but we take pride on taking care of our customers whether we have 1 person or all 17 rooms are full. The office was locked because there are errands that need to be run and things need to be taken care of while things are slow. We are open 365...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sitzmark Chalet is nestled under the tall pines of Ruidoso, NM. Our charming 17 unit inn offers the distinct personal attention that every traveler desires for a relaxing mountain get-a-way. Our classic regard to detail and customer service is something that you just can't acquire in today's cookie-cutter chain lodging atmosphere. We are located in the heart of Ruidoso close to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. With a wonderful central location, you are close to all of the vacation activities you have been looking for. Relax on the front lawn during a summer evening on a porch swing while watching the hummingbirds, or unwind after a day on the slopes in our steam sauna. We look forward to having you as our guest! ... more   less
