There aren't any motels between Roswell and Ruidoso.
You might also research Capitan. It is closer than the other two places, but I'm not sure of the altitude. It should be fairly close to what you want, and I think there are some in that town.
Thanks so much!
There are at least two possibilities to investigate. Sorry I didn't read this before your trip, and I'm sorry that I haven't visited either of these places myself. 1st is the Hurd Ranch and Guest Homes in Hondo, NM. These are run by the Hurd family, related to Peter Hurd the artist. They are also related to Henriette Hurd, who had some very famous relatives. I assume you will have the opportunity to buy some art if you stay here. Peter and Henriette lived in the Hondo Valley and you'll see their beautiful paintings, no doubt. Many originals are in the Roswell Art Museum nearby.
There is also a Pecan Tree Bed and Breakfast in Hondo. It has no reviews as of today. If you return to the area, maybe you can review them. I do love the Hondo Valley and Ruidoso areas.
The Tinnie Mercantile @ Tinnie has two very nice rooms and an excellent restaurant and bar. There are two historic hotels in Lincoln that are fun and interesting to stay at. We stayed at Tinnie Mercantile in May and the rooms there are beautiful and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay at the Wortley Hotel in Lincoln, the food was excellent as well. Both are highly recommended.
Took me awhile to find any info on Tinnie Mercantile's rooms. http://www.tinniesilverdollar.com/
This is an old post, but some good information.
There are lots of hotels in Ruidoso itself, which is closer than Alamogordo.
