Motel 6 Ruidoso
Ranked #17 of 23 Hotels in Ruidoso
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

The gentleman at the front desk gave us a great deal he was very helpful friendly and had a cute dog. The rooms are outdated but the beds were incredibly comfortable. The check in was fast which is great when your tired and ready to go to bed. The rooms were clean and believe me I check for small details that maids could miss but it was spotless not a stray hair in place or dust on the headboards. Sheets even smelled fresh. So what if they don't have fancy flat screen TVs or plush bed spreads it was still a comfortable stay. The only downside is I didn't have an ironing board or blow dryer. Most hotels do so I was surprised. As a coffee drinker I would complain that there are no pots in the room but they make up for it by having 24 hr in the front.

When staying one night I tend to book Motel 6 or similar, knowing what to expect. This time it was a bad experience. The room was small by itself. However a corner of it was taken by the control room of the neighboring indoor swimming pool, leaving very little room space for walking and luggage. My complaint was met by the owner with a shrug "this is the only room we have". My reply that I have booked one and half months ago was replied: "But you booked through someone else". This impertinent reply is enough to suggest that you avoid this place. The fact that its price is at least 50% higher than the usual Motel 6 rates, makes the avoidance even better...

This older "gentleman" mentioned by another reviewer is a [--]! I got online and got a price, showed up in person and asked for that price and he said, "we don't do that stuff - I don't know where that stuff comes from". He could not have been ruder! Many years ago, when new, we stayed there on a couple of occasions and couldn't have been happier. Never again - there are too many places in Ruidoso at a reasonable price where the customer is appreciated - not the "enemy".

I did not know what the buzzing noise was in the walls! Another reviewer likened it to an electric sander. Whatever it is, be prepared to wake up throughout the night! That is, if the drunks at this hotel allow you to sleep. We finally called the front desk at 3:30am to complain. We were told they would call the room. Shortly after, the noise elevated! Someone knocked on their door and asked them to be quiet, but it did not help! I am done with Motel 6 and the thin walls and ceilings! When we checked out, I complained and the young girl smiled and ducked her head refusing to talk with us! We paid 86 for the room with no amenities in the room! Tom, do not waste your time leaving the light on for us!

When we got to our room we found dried boogers on the wall, dried ketchup on the wall, the shower knob came off when we turned on the water, the bathroom floor was disgustingly dirty! the door would barely open & close, we had to turn the thermostat as far down as it would go to make the air come on. They kindly moved us to another room which was MUCH cleaner but the a/c worked the same as the one in the other room. The beds were hard as a rock, the bedding smelled like dirty hair/bad breath. The hot tub water smelled like swamp water. I would NOT recommend this Motel 6 to ANYONE!!

We stayed here as they had the best rates for the weekend we traveled to Ruidoso for a family getaway.The rooms are dated and in need of upgrading but they were clean with hot showers but did not have a refrigerator.The indoor pool was a little cool but the hot tub was very hot and relaxing.I would probably rate it at 2 stars in it's current condition but it could easily be a 3 star if the owners upgraded the rooms and added some amenities like a fridge and more comfortable beds.
The front desk staff were friendly and helpful when asked about local attractions.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms away from the road noise are always best.
