Nestled in the tall pines we have stayed here several times over the past few years.....Every trip made to Ruidodo we stay here. The staff is so friendly and love the rooms also. Just a short walk into Midtown and the lodge has a porch swing outside the rooms to relax. After a day of gambling or shopping they have a wonderful pool and hot tub! Would definately recommend!

West Wind Lodge is the best place to stay in Ruidoso. Quiet, clean and yet walking distance to everything. Great indoor pool and the owners treat everyone like family. I've been staying here every summer for the last 10 years and I hope I can stay here 10 more. You will love it !!!!! Thanks, Joel

Just finished a four night stay in a 2x queen cabin room (lodge part of hotel). I'm not sure why there are so many positive reviews as the "lodge" rooms are not very nice. I can't comment on the condos which look ok from the outside.
Pros:
- Just like everyone else said...the staff is Great and very friendly.
- Location. Short & nice walk to central shopping & dining area of town
- Clean
- Outside grounds are well kept.
Cons:
- Room way too small for two queen beds. No seating other than the two wood dining chairs.
- WiFi doesn't work (tried outside the room as well. Had to go to Dennys to check my email)
- Small bathroom with only a broken thin plastic accordion door separating it from the room. Using the toilet, you are about 6 feet from one of the beds.
- Kitchenette adequate, but old fridge unit from the 1960's froze everything in it (even at lowest temp). A can of coke exploded inside and made a mess that we cleaned up.
- No water pressure in shower/bath. Very disappointing when you want a nice shower or
bath after a day of skiing.
- Bathroom sink outlet broken (GFCI would not reset). Wife had to dry hair etc. in the kitchenette.
- Smallish old style T.V. (did have good channel selection)
- Hot tub/pool doesn't open until noon....and then takes another hour to warm up.
- Be aware of no soap/shampoo provided for bath. Just hand soap at sink.
Overall:
It was ok for the price and we didn't let the cons affect our stay. Would have been too crowded if my son was with us (just had daughter on this trip). Next time I'll spend more and maybe check out the West Wind condo's along with the many other lodging options in the area.

This place was great. My Wife and I went on our honeymoon here during spring break since just about every other place was booked. It was a good time. The only two complaints I have are the wood for the fireplace was a little expensive and the wifi signal was poor. There is a place to cook breakfast, shower comfortably, swim in a heated pool and hot tub. This place is a bargain, I enjoyed it, and whoever is reading this, so will you.

Signed,

A now happy patron.

Room Tip: Pick cabin number 16 a or b, for they are easier to pull out of if you have a vehicle and quieter

I love this place. The owners are GREAT! They always make sure we are well taken care of and are very accommodating. We always stay in the condos which are big, clean and comfortable. We stay here every year with a large group of family and would not choose anywhere else! Its also a great rate. The location is an added bonus Its right in the middle of town so we can walk and not have to worry about parking. I would highly recommend this place!

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.
