If you want to stay in a place where the shower curtain is moldy, the sheets have wholes in them, and then they bill you $25.00 extra for a plastic ice bucket that you never used. I would recommend this place. If you want a nice place DON"T COME HERE!!!

My wife and I booked a trip through Orbits to stay at this Days Inn. After a 400 mile and a 6 hour drive from Tucson we arrived at 9:30 PM to find we had no reservation and the hotel was full. Make sure you call the hotel directly before leaving to make sure you have a reservation or you will be abandoned like us far away from home in a busy resort community. When we called Orbits they offered to give us our money back plus a coupon for 50 USD. I will let you be the judge on whether or not we were treated fairly.

Arrived at 12 told to come back at 2 for check in. Came back at 3 and were given a room, lugged the luggage up the stairs, because there is NO Elevator. Went up to the room told by the cleaning lady, that the room still wasn't ready. We were given a DIFFERENT room but had to GO BACK DOWN to exchange keys. Finally got in room and then were told we had to GO BACK to the ORIGINAL room, that was clean now, lugged luggage out of second room and back to original room and yes, had to GO BACK DOWNstairs to get the key AGAIN! Asked to speak to manager, told he wasn't in asked how we could reach him, were told though internet asked for address, they didn't have it only had a cheap business card with a number on it. Called the number, it was the number to the front desk!! Ridiculous! Noisy, could hear traffic throughout the night!

The front desk people were helpful. They had waffles for breakfast which was good. Only negative, was everyone loved the waffles for breakfast, so it took awhile to make them. They had a good restaurant in the parking lot, Jorge's which had great Mexican food.

I've stayed at this motel for over 5 years and the managment team has changed twice which i knw of, the current managers you can tell have taken charge on cleanliness in the rooms as well as overall property. cam here labor day weekend got overcharged at the time but everyone in town was charging over 169 (I drove around) but after the remodel of the bathrooms and new pillow top beds i would gladdly pay more then the avg rate i just payed this past weekend i was in ruidoso of 49 dollars.

We stayed in Ruidoso because we were far from home and did not want to travel at night. We were happy to find a room available during the Labor Day weekend; especially since Mine That Bird was also visiting Ruidoso Downs that weekend. I knew that we would pay a premium price for the night. However, when I looked at my receipt, I was sick. The price for the room for one night was 278 dollars. Sick, there must be some mistake. The room was clean, however the coffee was bad and the faucet on the sink was very hard to turn on. The hotel was noisy, the proprietors were not personable, the breakfast was inadequate. We feel that we were ripped off!

We stayed in Ruidoso for two nights; this was the second night. Even though it might be considered Ruidoso Downs, this motel was literally a 30 second car ride from Travelodge, where we stayed the night before, whose address is Ruidoso. This Days Inn was having roof work done, and when we checked in (late afternoon) we couldn't get to the room (it was roped off), but we knew that up front. There's a reasonably priced restaurant right next door, and when we were done with the meal we could enter our room. The room was good, except at night there was a booming sound (sounded like some machinery) and it often woke me up. We were also near the ice machine, but we shut that room's door and that problem was solved. The breakfast was fine, but nothing fancy. We weren't expecting more. The front desk apologized for the noise, and said they'd look into it. If we were staying in this area another night, I would have definitely stayed here again, but in a different room. There's ample parking. Overall, except for that booming noise, it was a good stay. This motel is very easy to find, but it's on a busy highway and if you're crossing over, it's probably better to go farther into Ruidoso Downs and turn around.
