“Yuck!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2008

Stayed here one night. The first room they gave us looked like the carpet had not been vacuumed. There were chips and the like all over the floor. I walked back to the office and they gave us another one. I told them that the former room was filthy.

They gave us another room without any qualms, and it was an improvement but not much. The room was dark and very outdated. This is either an older property or one that was not taken care of much.

Their breakfast in the moning was pretty dismal...not up to today's standards. The people at the front desk were not really what I would call real personable.

I would definitely not recommend this one. We did get it for a cheaper price too, otherwise I would probably not have stayed there for even the single night.

What a joke! We arrived early in the afternoon so that the children in our party could go swimming, only to find out that the pool had been closed by the health department! It doesn't make you feel very good about the quality or cleanliness of the rooms, does it?

The rooms were dingy, the beds uncomfortable, and our room had a strange smell. It was a bad experience, overall. It was certainly not worth the money that we paid for the two rooms that we had booked. Stay anywhere else in Ruidoso! This place stinks. The quality level is far below what should be expected from a Days Inn.

The pool & jacuzzi were closed by the State Inspector when we were there. We had booked that hotel specifically for the indoor pool for the kids. The TV reception was terrible. The satellite cut out every minute. The clock radio was filthy. I hated to touch it. The room had hardly any toilet paper, I had to go to the front desk to get more.

The breakfast was disappointing. The clerk was watching a movie and didn't wipe any tables, or replenish supplies. I had to ask for more waffle batter, more milk, etc. There was no bread to make toast, but there was a toaster. There was cereal, waffles & prepackaged breakfast bars and muffins. The orange juice was watery and there was no decaf coffee.

I will not stay at this Days Inn again. I had stayed at one in a different town, and was pleased, but this one was a mess.

  • Liked — On main highway, easy to find
  • Disliked — Pool & Spa closed, front desk help unhelpful

Pool & Hot Tub closed by NM Health Dept., not due to maintenance but sanitation, and had been for quite awhile. We did not know of this until check-in, though we had called the day before confirming reservations made months in advance. Satellite was a joke, movie & tv channels cut out every 2 min., could not watch anything, complained but no results. No Hot Tub, Pool or TV. Manager refunded $50 after extensive arguing, we had stayed for 3 nights. Close proximity to Race Track, Indoor Pool & Hot Tub the reasons for selecting this Hotel, we will not be back or ever give a recommendation to anyone to stay there.
