“Would Stay Again”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Property location and hosts are absolutely great. The property is older but reasonably well maintained and clean. The area is extremely quiet. The kitchenette areas are not well stocked enough for our liking but overall for price paid this is a good value in Ruidoso.

My husband and I have stayed at the West Winds several times over the last 10 years! We have always enjoyed our stay. Tony, Vicky, and Teresa have always made us feel welcome and right at home. The accommodations are clean and comfortable and the pool and soaking tub are an added bonus. This lodge is about a block from restaurants and shopping making it very convenient.

The condo we stayed in was magnificent.
Lots of room, 2 rooms and a loft. 2 full bathrooms.
Full kitchen with needed cookery.
Nice balcony, great fireplace.
Hot tub and heated pool were very close to our condo and was nice after a cold day skiing.
They even pointed us to a great equipment outfitter on the way to the mountain who gave us a great discount.
Its basically only 2 blocks away from the main road and all the shops.
Great location and great place, our family will be going again for sure. I would recommended this to anyone.

Awesome family!

Thank you Tony and Vicky for a great time. We had a great time thier and we're planning our next trip back with you. We're telling all our friends and family to stay at west winds lodge. The condos make us feel like we're at home and our kids loved the pool and the Jacuzzi. We wished to stay longer but it was all worth the stay. But to see the dear on the premisice was the coolest thing to see from the back door. Thank you again Tony and Vicky..

Extended family of 9 stayed at the West Winds Condos from Dec 27-Jan 1. The location is two blocks from town. Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. And convenient drive to Ski Apache and casinos. The condo has everything you need at a great price. Would definitely recommend and hope to go back soon.

Room Tip: Condo needed more utensils and pots and pans. May can request from office. We did not try. We ate l...
