The lodge was ok but for the price I would rather just stay at the casino. If you are a golfer this is a great hotel for you because you are right on the course but if you aren't there is nothing really special about this hotel. The staff was nice.

Thank you for your review and your compliment for our staff. You are correct in that ours is not a casino property, we are more suited for couples and families. And golfers. For the price conscious guest, please check our website for periodic specials.

I stayed one night at the Lodge and was a little disappointed. The furnishings were ok, but everything was run down and worn. The bathroom had water damaged tiles and it was filthy underneath the bed (I stored some posters there). I would not go back. The Comfort Inn just down the road where I stayed the previous night, was superior at only $79. Try that hotel instead!

Was given a kitchenette because I was faculty at the conference held next door. What a gorgeous place to stay! Clean and so great, the kitchen would have been perfect for a couple or a small family but I was by myself this time. The fireplace was really nice to fire up on chilly mornings while I got ready. The balcony looks over the mountains and was great to sit out on in the mornings with some hot tea and just smell the wonderful pine trees.

The Lodge was a beautiful getaway! We stayed in a King sweet: separate bedroom, full kitchen (big fridge, stove, microwave), couch, fireplace. The bathroom had a HUGE jacuzzi bath tub. We also had an out door porch! Breakfast at the lodge was gourmet, WAY better than any ordinary continental breakfast. The grounds of the hotel were also incredible. There is a 3 mile walking path around the property that is just for walkers and bike riders. A golf course also surrounds the property the the views are quite and peaceful. The indoor pool was large, though Memorial day obviously was crowded.
Well worth the trip!

This is not a resort property. Grounds are totally unkept. Do not believe pictures. Dead grass and plants abound. Windows have not been washed in years. Light in kitchen suite intermittent, electrical problem. Toilet seat ready to fall off. All interior wall paint scuffed and marred down to exposed primer. Sofa was threadbare, cushions seams torn, heads of buttons missing exposing nails 1/4" long that caught your heals. Air conditioner was noisy. All faucets leaked. No hi-def flat screen tv's, rather borderline 19/24" crts - spelled obsolete. Picture quality was borderline.
The maids do an excellent job of trying to clean a totally unkept property. But you cannot polish a turd.

Room Tip: For $200 a night go somewhere else.

This is my second time staying in this hotel. For the price and outside look, you would definately think it was better than what it was. The first time there was an older (80's-90's) tv that had a jumpy screen. Was only staying for one night, so wasn't too bothered by it. Pool was a refreshing treat.

Beds were hard. Shower was not much because of the hard water buildup.

Second time was given a room with a "nice flatscreen tv". Wasn't much of a upgrade from the older tv that we had first. Screen had a fuzzy picture, that was almost impossible to see. One of the outlet plugs didn't work. Room was reserved with a company credit card. Upon check out I was asked which card was to be charged. I told the desk clerk to use the card the room was reserved with, not the one I used at check in. Checked my account a few hours later because we had car trouble and saw a charge on my card for the $252. When I called back I was told that a reversal would be done, but would take 2-3 business days to show back up in my account. I am now on the 4th business day and it still isn't there. Was told today that they are working on reimbursements now. Would definately stay somewhere else if possible, but room is paid for by company.

Not at all sure how to rate this place

First the pros :
- Comfy bed & sofa bed was made up when unfolded.
- Really yummy omlette on day 2 when the station was open.
- The room was nicely decorated & clean.
- Public areas were nice & comfy & a very inviting place to be.
- Check in was prompt and the staff helpful.
- Totally non-smoking hotel

The cons :
- No extra pillows in a drawer for the sofa bed? (probably could have gotten some with a call, just never bothered)
- The view - Meh! Parking lot. I understand Ruidoso is on the pricey side but I would have expected something a little better for the price. Again, wasn't a huge deal so we didn't say anything, just a bit of a dissatisfier.
- Breakfast the 1st morning - Meh - things that should have been hot on the buffet were warm and not much selection of cereals/fruit/pastry for a continental breakfast.
- The room was very cramped in many ways. I realize we had 4 of us in the room but one large room with 2 queen beds at the generic hotels in many ways were more roomy. We had a 1bdrm and there was just no empty space except the kitchen area.

I would consider this place if we return to Ruidoso but I would look more carefully at other places as well.
