    « We will be back. »

    Everything that we expected. Staff was terrific. Room was very clean. The only small issue that we had was the eggs at breakfast or dry and rubbery and didn't sit well on the tummy. But the waffles were great.

    « Excellent Stay at Ruidoso Inn »

    I stayed at the Ruidoso Inn for three nights about two weeks ago. My stay was excellent, from service to accommodations. The folks at Best Western Plus Ruidoso Inn think of everything, and their personal attention to guest comfort and provisions is commendable! Thank you!

    « Nice hotel; more attention to detail »

    This is basically a very nice hotel, with large spacious rooms in a wooded area at the edge of Ruidoso. The staff is quite pleasant, and the breakfast is above average. Two problems that could easily be fixed: the business center was closed (out of order) the entire time I was there, and the breakfast room is far too small (we had to wait for a table): this is a persistent problem at Best Westerns. Also I did not received any of the freebies I was entitled to as an Elite member (i only learned about this when I received a survey from the hotel).

    Friendly staff, spacious, attractive room. Nice breakfast. GPS took us through many twists and turns but we were told it was shortest route! Scenic location .We stayed only overnight but would stay here again!

    « Excellent Experience on our Travels »

    The beds are excellent and very comfortable. Also, the room seemed much more spacious than I have seen at other properties. The hotel staff is very helpful. They went out of their way to provide us with information about things to do in the local area, hiking trails, etc. I highly recommend this place! Their breakfast is excellent.

    « E & S BW Stay »

    The Manager was courteous, the other person I'm not too pleased with. I've traveled to many places across this country I've learned to see when a person has contempt for me as a person. I'm not happy.

    « Disappointed »

    I'm a fan of this hotel chain but was disappointed. It wasn't just one thing. Understaffed front desk, dirty cigarette butt area outside the door near our room. Most BW serve breakfast at 6:00 a.m., this one 6:30. We drive 8-10 hour days so 30 minutes was enough to forgo breakfast. The room was clean but sheets have seen better days with pilling. I hope this gets corrected because it's a good location and has potential with some tweaking.

    « Ruidoso snow »

    for the standard amount of 80 dollars this is a good hotel, could put the perfect qualification, just for one thing, that the shower was not useful and my boyfriend and I had to fill the tub to bathe with water glasses. they could improve. the breakfast very regular but the bed very comfortable. and everything very clean. at the reception they behaved very well. Other thing and the coffe is good.

    « Spring break family vacation »

    We spent a few nights here during spring break. I had checked around other hotels/ motels and found this facility would suit our family's convenience on a budget. Room was a bit bigger than usual with a sofa and desk. Very clean inside and outside, breakfast was good. I liked the fact different items were offered each day. I wasn't crazy about the scrambled eggs one day; they tasted like powdered eggs. The tamales and green chili salsa made up for it the next day. I really appreciate management opening the conference room to accommodate guests when the dining area was full. I only had two issues that I addressed to management before I checked out. They said they would take care of it. All hotel staff were courteous, polite, helpful, and professional.

    « Customer service »

    Had transportation problems getting to Ruidoso, called at 11am. The morning of my check in date to cancel, explaining the problem. They refused to cancel the first night and charged me for 1 night. On your confirmation there is a code, they claimed that is your notification you have to give 24 hr. Notice. Good luck finding it or understanding it. The girl I talked to answers to phone hello, no welcome to BW. You have no idea where you called or who you are talking to. She was rude, and could of cared less that they were taking advantage of you. The manager never even had the courtesy to call me back, she made the rude inconsiderate millennial immature kid call me back. Stay away from this place and plan to get billed if you have to cancel, oh unless you die or have a medical issue. They will take your money, for no service and prolly turn around and rent your room,double dipping. Terrible unethical service.

    « New Year's getaway »

    I pre-paid for the room prior to arriving, yet my card was charged again for $226 after I checked in. Was supposed to be a fun New Year's getaway but was ruined due to this hotel charging me again for the room that was already paid for. Staff at the front desk basically told me there's nothing they can do about it. Thanks for ruining my trip!! Definitely never staying here again and I will tell everybody I know that is considering visiting Ruidoso to stay away from the Best Western Plus!

    « good choice »

    Chose BWR because of price and amenities compared to local resort prices.Service was great, room was comfortable. Break fast was good. only negative was towel shelf in bathroom was pulled off wall and when notified front desk explained that a work order was in place but was not resolved yet. I believe another room should have been offered.

    « Our Saving Grace »

    We decided to try this hotel at the last second due to having a TERRIBLE experience in another hotel that same day. We did not have prior reservations but they got us a room without hesitation. They worked to give us a good deal for being reward members and were very accommodating. We felt welcomed and absolutely relieved that they had rooms available for us. Staff was wonderful! Rooms were nice and clean. Room was very spacious and beds were comfortable. This has become our "go-to" hotel when we are in Ruidoso ever since!

    « Great Hotel »

    Super comfortable. The decor felt like home. Very cozy. No problems at all, very friendly/helpful staff. Great indoor pool. Very nice and clean. Loved our outside view from the room. The cleaning staff was very good, we stayed 2 days and the room stayed clean thanks to them.

    Great place to stay, friendly staff and great breakfasts. Rooms look new and remodeling was in process, lobby was not as inviting as other BW plus but I'm sure that is planned in the remodel. I will certainly be back when the area.

    « Always a welcome visit »

    I travel a lot. I stay a several hotels of different kinds. When I'm in the Ruidoso area, this Best Western Hotel is always my go to Hotel. Although there are other hotels available, this particular BW is consistently a quality hotel.

    « Room Reveiw @ Best Western Plus »

    The room was very attractive & clean. We enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed the breakfast very much. It was served in a timely manner, and the items went beyond the usual. The staff was very friendly. We would highly recommend this hotel to our friends.

    « Birthday Weekend »

    This was a two night get away, it was off season so the price was good and the hotel was not so full, but November is a great time to visit Ruidoso for the colors of the trees and the weather, not too hot but not too cold. a light jacket will work. The hotel has an elevator, the rooms are spacious, bed was comfortable, breakfast was better than most, the indoor pool was a bit chilly but the hot tub was relaxing. Because it was my birthday the staff made me a card and they all signed it, how does it get any better than that? Id stay there again,

    « A New Home »

    Best Western Plus sits on the side of a mountain - the view is magnificent. The feeling when you walk through the door is warm and inviting. You feel like you have just arrived home. The employees treat you like you are their best friends. The knock themselves out for the guest. You just never want to leave. I think I could live there in the one room and be very lazy and happy.

    « Best Western Plus Ruidoso NM »

    Nice property. Spacious rooms, nice staff. Very comfortable. Very reasonable rate. I would highly recommend this property to couples and/or families, as the rooms are very comfortable. Conveniently located in Ruidoso, central to town.

    We travel a lot and this was by far my best hotel experience, the staff was so friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, clean and the overall hotel was in great condition. Can't wait to book our next trip not only to Ruidoso but all the other states we have on our bucket list to complete

    « SOME GOOD, SOME DISASPPOINTMENTS »

    On the plus side, the staff was excellent. We were greeted very warmly and each time we returned to the hotel, someone always asked us about our day. Room was average. However, housekeeping left something to be desired. One day our waste baskets were not emptied, and another day it looked like they had not finished making the beds. Also, the bath towels were threadbare. The breakfast was decent and the attendant always came by everyone's tables to ask if they needed anything. Room was quiet and ample parking.

    « Clean and Quiet and Friendly »

    This was a very nice hotel just outside of town, away from traffic. We spent two nights here, our room was very comfortable and quiet. The breakfast buffet was good. My husband had the tamales, I had the biscuits with gravy. All of the staff were pleasant, cheerful, polite, helpful. I would stay here again, any time!

    « rooms are a joke »

    Rooms are filthy but staff are great. I have never been to this little town and was so excited. We got to BW a day earlier than our reservation so we were offered a suite. Due to our early arrival we took it. We were told there was a small stain by the couch, we said no problem. When we got to the room there were stains from the door to the window. There room got worse from there. We were told the entire hotel would be getting new carpet the week of 10/7/17. That wouldn't address the window treatments that were torn. The old dirty furniture. I am not sure I would give this BW another chance but he staff were so great I would consider it.

    « Close Proximity to Historic Lincoln »

    If your planning on staying near Historic Lincoln this is a good option. It is close, about 1/2 hour drive and offers a clean comfortable room. The doors are hollow so there is a bit of sound travel in the halls, but overall quite. The staff is pleasant and they offer a complimentary breakfast.

    « VERY dissatisfied!!! »

    Horribly overpriced for the condition of the room and overall building safety and security. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone as when we notified the front desk of the issues & problems, they insisted it was our fault for not leaving the room for the entire day so they could fix the problems. The problems included torn & worn carpet to the point it became a tripping hazard, door to room would not close on its own, broken grout in the bathroom & laying all around, carpet installed in front of the refrigerator so it was very difficult to open & close, outside/side door to building was unlocked all day & all night, sliding doors between rooms of suite all had handles on one side making it almost impossible to open from inside the second room. Overall, VERY disappointed in the quality, cleanliness, security & price of this hotel.

    « Good value in off season »

    The hotel met our expectations, nice spacious room, clean, lots of plug for electronics. Breakfast was the BW standard prepared by a nice staff person. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were there on weekdays in the early fall, the off season, and felt the hotel was a good value.

    « Excellent Hotel, Great Staff, Fantastic Stay! »

    My company and I stayed here while on a project for the US Forest Service. WQe loved everything about this BW, and we stay at a lot of them. The staff is friendly, accommodating, and professional. The rooms are clean and nice. The breakfast is excellent (given the price point) and all-in-all, we were duly impressed. My guys especially liked the beds and remarked they all got an excellent night's sleep in them. We would recommend and stay here again.

    « Best Western Plus - Ruidoso »

    « Nice Hotel »

    Good quiet place to stay in Ruidoso which can be a very noisy tourist town especiasll along the major routes which is where most hotels are locaterd. This Best Western is back up the mountain way above the highway with back view to a mountain with trees and front views down towards the quite far away highway. Unlike the last two Best Westerns we stayed in in West Texas the pool and hot tub both worked. This is a good place to stay.

    « Great Motel in Ruidoso »

    « The best complimentary breakfast »

    The room was large with 2 queen beds and a sofa/bed. Everything was clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pleasant surprise was the breakfast. I have never had a complimentary hotel breakfast that was as good as this one. We stayed on a weekend and I understand that the breakfast is a little better on the weekend. Some of the food items looked and tasted like they were prepared by hand locally like the green chili chicken breakfast tamale. The salsa also seemed homemade. You will not regret the breakfast at this hotel.

    « Clean and comfortable »

    My daughters and I stayed one night at this hotel while visiting Ruidoso, New Mexico. The hotel was easy to find. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. They had a breakfast buffet with a good variety of food to eat. We enjoyed our stay, and it's a hotel I'd gladly stay at again.

    I have stayed in Best Westerns across Texas (from the top of the panhandle to the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and everywhere in between) and this one in New Mexico has.. by far.. the friendliest staff. Thank you for the kind hospitality and the caring demeanor. The staff here really does go above and beyond.

    I call and made arrangement at you motel very good service food was great very clean and everyone was very nice. The only thing I felt was wrong was the price of the last couple of days knowing that you would fill up so that you could charge more I just don't feel that is the right thing to do when you have paid for 3 days before

    « Lovely hotel on the outskirts of town »

    Windows open on this property which is a plus for me. On a hillside below a subdivision with fireplaces. Better air if you stay on front of building. You will not have exhaust odors from kitchen. Furniture throughout hotel is too dark. Rugs are worn bare in king room. Comfortable bed and good tv. Great hotel staff!

    This Best Western is an affordable, clean, quiet hotel, and in a great location for all the local events. The staff was awesome! The breakfast offered all the standards, plus omelets, waffles, biscuits and gravy and more. We have stayed at this hotel many times with no complaints - it's our "go to" hotel for our quick trips to get our mountain fix!

    « Great Place to stay & has great views »

    My husband & I stayed here 3 nights & it was a very nice place & had great views. The staff was very friendly & the breakfast area was large & clean. We did not know it was the 2nd busiest weekend of the year. It is a very quiet motel up on the side of a hill. We always try to stay at Best Westerns. The only problem that was mentioned by the staff, was that the televisions had a problem as the screens were dark & could not be lightened.. Otherwise, this is a great place to stay. The rec room as well as the pool area were great & always clean.

    « Long weekend at the horseraces »

    Dirty walls, breakfast provided wasn't good (went to Inn of the Mountain Gods to eat). Air didn't work that well only cooled part of the room, only one staff member was friendly. Over priced for what is provided. Won't stay here again, recommend if you have nowhere else to sleep. People running around making noise, I called to complain and nothing was done about it.

    « Good rates, value, and service for a resort town hotel! »

    Very friendly and helpful staff. Convenient location just outside city limits. Third floor rooms very quiet, with mountain views available. Room size exceptional for price range. Our $88 room with 2 queen beds had a spacious seating area by window with sofa and large desk. While bath room was small, it was updated, modern and well-equipped. We appreciated getting good quality, comfort, and service in a popular resort town,at a price that fit our budget!

    « Very hard inexpensive beds- Great staff and Cleanliness »

    The bed was so hard we couldn't sleep all night. They were like boards. The staff was great and they tried to help us find another room with better beds, however, all the beds were hard. The staff said the beds were fairly new which tells us the owner bought cheap beds. Otherwise, the property was great and the staff and housekeepers were top notch. If you want a really hard bed, this place will be ok for you.

    We mentioned to Rose the Hotel Manager that it was our 41st wedding anniversary and she came to our room with a bouquet of roses, two wine glasses and a bottle of Champagne, all compliments of the Best Western.

    My stay was great. The staff was extremely nice. The location of the hotel was perfect. The price was reasonable. My only issue was the check in time was not until 4. I was not a huge fan of it being so late because I had already been on the road all day. The lady at the desk helped me out though. The other bests western in this town was not willing to work with me at all.

    « Old But Clean »

    Facility was clean but old. Staff smoke right outside front door which looks unprofessional and problematic for those of us with asthma. Many guests appeared to be workers in the area rather than tourists. Get down to breakfast early, otherwise it's not very appetizing. After first morning, we ate elsewhere for breakfast.

    « A little trip with a twist! »

    We took the kiddos out of town for a night and stayed here. Unfortunately, my son picked up a stomach bug and well, let's just say, it wasn't as much fun for him! Thankfully, Laura, the lady at the front desk was extremely kind and compassionate even though he got sick in one of the trash cans! She was so pleasant to us the entire time we were there and she asked how he was feeling every time she saw us. Anytime we needed anything, she made sure it was brought to us promptly and with a big smile! Kudos to her for being such a wonderful employee and person!

    My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while on vacation. The front desk people were great in greeting us as we checked in. The room was very nice and the bed was comfortable. The tv remote control didn't work well. Don't know if it was a network problem or not. We asked them to check into it, but didn't get the issue resolved. Also, neither one of us recall getting the password to log into the wifi there. We only ate breakfast there on the morning that we were leaving. Holly, the manager, was nice and coming to ask if all was okay with the breakfast and our rooms. The lady that was taking care of the breakfast was very nice and helpful. The main reason that I didn't give a 5 was because of the issues with the tv situation, as my husband enjoys watching tv in the evenings and he couldn't.

    The room was large, clean, modern & very comfortable. Laura at front desk is a sweetheart., great customer service & a genuinely kind & happy person. Water pressure in shower is poor & Wi-fi is very poor. If it weren't for the Wi-fi I'd give 5 stars. Owner/management should invest in better faster wi-fi - router system. In today's day having good wi-fi is very important.

    « Nice Hotel to Stay At »

    We were there just one night traveling through Ruidoso but enjoyed our stay. The hotel had a great view on the side of a hill overlooking the valley. The room was clean and spacious and the Wi-Fi worked flawlessly. The indoor hot tub and pool was nice after a long day on the road and the hot breakfast the next morning was good way to start our day. Located just off the main street going through Ruidoso so getting around was a breeze.

    We truly enjoyed our stay at the Best Western plus in Ruidoso.

That happens every time I stayed in the best western.

    « Excellent staff, super-large room, great location »

    We reserved a king suite and wound up on the 3rd floor in the largest hotel suite we have ever stayed in for a chain hotel. It was awesome! The hotel is very clean and accommodating for all your needs. It was very reasonably priced ($130 on the weekend and $85 during the week--including all taxes.) While Ruidoso is very small, this hotel is situated in a quiet and convenient part of town. Highly recommend.

    We used our points for an overnight trip on our anniversary weekend. (If you haven't signed up for points with the hotels you frequently stay at, you're missing out on a great benefit - especially if you travel a lot.) The full breakfast was really good - plenty to choose from, one of the best ones we've had. By the time we were able to go down to eat it was almost at the end of the serving time, but the server said she would be there as long as we needed her. Every staff person we met was very friendly. Just a couple of things on the negative side. The tub faucet leaked like a sieve, and when we were checking out we reported it to the desk clerk. She said she would get that note to the maintenance man and have it taken care of. We were in a 2 queen room, and one of the mattresses had a definite sway to it so we slept on the other bed. We rested really well. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. It was a very pleasant stay.

The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is large and you have a vanity in the bathroom and another just outside the bathroom. There is both a microwave and frig.

    After traveling 8 hours I was greeted at this hotel with an evening desk clerk who had major attitude issues. After checking in, we tried to locate the elevator which we found to be in a closet with a potted plant propped next to the closet door to keep it open. Not a very safe feeling. Code issues,perhaps? We walked into the room which was large in size but very sparse in design or decoration. We found out later the air conditioner did not work. Even though it was 40's outside the room was close to 80 inside. The mattress and box spring were, my guess, probably a late 1960's vintage. The sheets were like tissue paper. The shower produced what I would generously call a "mist" rather than a spray. The toilet barely flushed. We were going n the third floor and the floor creaked. I can imagine how is sounded below us. Breakfast the next morning included sausage links burned on two sides, cold fried eggs and stale cereal. Basically inedible. However the second morning was better. The view was supposed to be mountainside, it did include a beautiful panoramic of the Motel 6. Overall, this was a total disappointment on our first trip to Ruidoso. Might be a good deal for $35 a night but no way for $150 a night. This is a great cash flow for the owners!

    The Good - I love the fact that it is NOT PET FRIENDLY - YEA! I am so tired of barking dogs near my hotel room and people walking their dogs outside and "forgetting" to pick up their pet's waste. The Bad - the pillows in our room were awful - very thick and hard. Both my husband and I had a terrible time trying to get comfortable with the pillows and by 3:00am the pillows hit the floor. I finally went and got my damp towel and made a makeshift pillow out of it. Better than nothing! If you need a pet friendly hotel try the sister property also a Best Western. It is in a more remote setting with lots of grass to walk your pets. Otherwise the front desk staff were very friendly and I'd stay again, but I would bring my own pillows!

It was a problem. I felt really bad for her. She was working her tail off and trying to smile while being inundated with requests. They need a second waffle iron. I wanted a waffle but was never able to have one any morning without squatting by the iron which I wasn't willing to do. The shower head is very high and wasn't adjustable and basically hit me in the face. Breakfast and shower aside I would stay here again. The place seemed clean and overall maintained.

    « Splendid Hiking Trip in Ruidoso »

    It was my first visit to picturesque Ruidoso, and it was one of the most pleasant stays in a Best Western. The hotel is close to town and sits on top of a hill with a view of a tree covered mountain to the south which is nice to gander at after a long day. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is top notch. Special kudos to Laura and Shanna for their concern for the guests. A central elevator is convenient, and the parking is sufficient. The delicious cookies in the lobby are always a nice touch, forcing a smile on my face each day after a strenuous hike in the forest. The only complaints of the 3rd floor room are mild ceiling structure noise from adjacent foot traffic and a slightly stubborn lever to activate the shower. The ceiling fan is an added bonus during the summer, and the cable package is more than adequate. The bed is comfortable, but the pillows are nothing special. The "single" most annoying occurrence was of course the absurd constant noise of slamming doors in the hallway on a couple of evenings. All things considered, I highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting rustic Ruidoso for a few splendid days, rain or shine.

    This hotel was amazing. With 4 kids under the age of 7, including 5 month old twins, it can be hard to find somewhere both with available space and family friendly. This place was both. It was also clean. I didn't worry about my kids playing on the floor or taking a bath or anything else that sometimes poses a problem. The kids and I took a rode trip to meet up with my husband before he shipped out and the hotel staff made a difficult situation as pleasant and easy as possible. They were patient with our chaos every morning at breakfast as well as our noise and constant circus. The allowed the kids and I to check in early when we arrived earlier than expected. They were understanding and even humored by what a family with a 7 year old, a toddler, and twin infants can be like. I never felt like we were a burden. My only complaint was that the shower in the room was difficult to use, leaked, and took a long time to warm up, and that the hot tub didn't look very clean. But none of those things would keep us from coming back!

    I never complain and stay at cheaper hotels usually and I'm always satisfied! Evidently his hotel jacked their prices up for the Easter holiday because I just got home and got online to leave a review and the rooms are $50 cheaper now! I might have felt better about the service had it been that much cheaper, but it wasn't worth what I paid! The breakfast was nice but that's all I can say. The wall mounted soap, shampoo and conditioner dispensers didn't work well so we finally ended up just taking them apart to get anything out of them... Then I find out that the lotion I'd been using out of the dispenser was really hair CONDITIONER! I called twice to the front desk and no one ever answered. I had to go get fresh washcloths that weren't left in the room. Our room only had one window that opened to the indoor pool?? Not to the outdoors, so we got to look at and hear lots of kids playing in the pool all evening instead of the mountains. The picture of the pool on this post is not the pool either!!! Don't be fooled... It's not that nice, it's old and dingy. Had to ask for towels to be replenished at the pool! The Wi-fi was worthless unless you go to the lobby. The rooms are old and dark and our TV brightness was turned way down with no way to change it. The room number on our phone was wrong so it could have really messed someone up. It was just an overall bad experience. The motel 6 right in front of this hotel or the Ruidoso Mountain Inn right next door may be better choices!

    « Enjoyed hotel so much, we extended our stay! »

    I chose this hotel for our family of 5 based on price and reviews. We booked the 1BR Suite for our family of 5. Check-in was easy, had to wait for my special request room location, but well worth it. Staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and genuinely helpful. Upon entry, it's noticeable that the room is outdated, and needed a few repairs. I notified the General Manager, and the problems were quickly fixed while we were out to lunch. The room is a great space, I've actually had a 1br apartment SMALLER than this suite. I have 2 teenagers and a 10m old. The teens loved that they each had a Queen bed in the bedroom, and we had enough space in the main area to setup a Pack&Play bed and also let the baby roam in a walker. Although it could use some updates, we found the value of the space far exceeded the need for posh drapes. A special treat was the electric fireplace in the living room area which added a mountain escape feel to the hotel room. While staying in Ruidoso, we found so much to do we extended our stay and enjoyed another night in this suite. I'm so glad we extended our stay, because the weekend breakfast served "homemade quality" tamales and salsa! After eating typical Continental hotel breakfast for a week, this Saturday morning FREE tamales and salsa were much appreciated. Special thanks to the General Manager and her staff for their outstanding service. We stayed at a few different competitors over the Spring Break, but this hotel experience topped the list.

    I would recommend this hotel to anyone needing a relaxing vacation. The indoor pool/hot tub are excellent, rooms are very spacious and front desk helpful and nice. Breakfast area comfortable and plenty of food to choose from

    « Spring break »

    We stayed during spring break and plan to return soon. Price was very economical, food was included. The only thing I would say was a negative is the AT&T phone service is terrible here and it didn't help that the hotel had terrible WiFi service. The phones in our rooms didn't work either so we had to use the phone at the front desk to order pizza. Other than that the service and manager were spectacular.

    Great place to stay if your visiting. Excellent breakfast buffet and they will honor lowest price on the internet vs current price at the hotel. Stopped in early in the morning didn't want to wake up family and the price was right.

    « Excellent Hotel and Great Bargain »

    A party of four , I went with my son, daughter in law and 4 yr old Grandson for a ski trip to Ski Apachi. This Hotel met all our needs, was located 30 min from Ski Apachi, 1 mile from Walmart for any forgotten items or snacks. Minutes fro downtown Ruidoso. Hot tub for me and parents,heated pool for Grandson.One time pool was cold and when staff were notified -maintenance got right on it and the pool was warmer within the next hour??? But true. They also offer military discount. Staff were courteous, professional and very accommodating. I will be going back in about 2 weeks. i highly recommend this hotel to others. Just leave room for me!!!!

    « Excellent Cust service »

    First time staying at a Best Western. My room didn't seem to have been cleaned, I called the desk and my room was changed with 5 minutes without any fuss. Excellent customer service. Check-in/check -out was quick and easy. The doors have a dead bolt lock and a safety chain so I feel very secure. Nice place I would stay here again.

    « AWESOME STAFF, GREAT BREAKFAST, LARGE ROOMS »

    The staff is extremely welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was a nice assortment and plenty for everyone. We stayed in a suite which had 3 beds that was comfortable for 6 people. Spa and heated pool was a great treat especially during the winter months. Would definitely recommend.

    The staff is very friendly and helpful. The check-in process seems a little overly, and unnecessarily complicated, but the staff is very polite about it. Very good complimentary breakfast in the morning. The internet service has improved and is fast enough to be relevant. The rooms are large, and the beds are comfortable.

    « Poor Hotel »

    There was not any hot water in the morning for showers. There were 2 towels in my room and both were discolored. we rented the conference room and it was filthy when we arrived.I do not recommend this hotel to anyone wanting or needing to stay in Ruidoso, New Mexico.

    « Good »

    The room was very spacious. The breakfast was good and acceptable. When we had a problem with our room the staff was there to fix it quick. The hotel even provides a place to cook out. The in door pool did not look clean to me but I am very picky about pools. On one night Several vehicles had trouble getting to the motel due to the ice on the driveway. The motel is located on top of a hill. I don't know if the hotel staff treats the driveway to help customers get to the motel. The hotel was good I would stay there again.

    This is an old hotel offers wine in the evening and a complete breakfast. The sheets are clean and has new comfortable mattress, but old smelly rug have not been replaced. Will not stay at this hotel again.

    « Always A great place to stay »

    We travel to Ruidoso 3 times a year at different times of the seasons. Every time we have chosen this hotel we have been satisfied. They are always very helpful and the hotel staff are very pleasant. I highly suggest trying this hotel before booking somewhere else. Each morning The breakfast has several different options to choose from.

    « Off the beaten path »

    Loved staying here. It was nice to get away from the downtown area but still be close by. This hotel has an outdoor picnic area and even a hilly walking trail. The room was clean and quiet and the towels were big and fluffy! Great breakfast in the morning. Warm cookies in the evening. Friendly staff that knows the town.

    We have stayed at the hotel before and over all like it. Front desk staff and housekeepers are friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is average for a non commercial kitchen to use. My daughter enjoyed the pool. My shower head was coming off the wall and there was hair other then ours on one of the pillows. Things happen sometimes I gather, so we would stay there again after all is said and done.

    « Not Happy »

    Have stayed at this Hotel in the past, had the nicest service, clean rooms, great service. This weekend stay was for my husbands birthday even after I brought that to their attention they offered NOTHING. Was unhappy with room, curtains were broke, carpet was dirty, nigh stand had coke from past visitors, ceiling fan made so much noise, some TV channels had no volume. I was very unhappy, this motel has gone down from our past visits, I paid WAY to much for a less than average motel.

    « Could have been a nice Review.. »

    Generally this motel was O.K. Not great, but o.k. However, after I left and returned home, I noticed I had forgotten by iPad Charger. Called the hotel, they said they had it and would Mail it to me for a $5.00 charge. Fine. One week came and went, not charger, called them back and they said it was mailed to just give it more time. SECOND week went by, not charger. CALLED them again and they said it was mailed. I asked for the Tracking Number. NOW THIRD WEEK, checked the Tracking Number.....my charger was deliver to another city entirely to someone else AND the Tracking showed the Charge was not mailed until I had CALLED the SECOND TIME in the SECOND week!!!! So yes, WILL NOT BE staying here again......WHY????? Because they LIED!!!

    « Missing a pool - there but we couldn't use it. »

    Overall a satisfactory stay except the promised pool (we do actual swimming) was not available to us because they won't open the pool until 11:00 am. Their explanation - the State of New Mexico will not let them open until 11:00 am because they set their pool hours. Yes, the state of New Mexico sets their hours!! We didn't believe it, either.

    « Great hotel! »

    I found everything to be clean, spacious, and well cared for. The morning clerk (George?) was very personable. The beds were awesome and ceiling fans provided ample comfort. The breakfast consisted of omletes, and sausage. Nice! Thanks!

    « Nice hotel, friendly staff »

    We've stayed at the Best Western Plus the last two times we have visited Ruidoso. The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful. The location is a little out of the way, and the price is a little high, but comparable with other hotels in the area.

    « Recently had a facelift »

    The rooms are large, comfortable beds, clean environment and just had a recent facelift. The breakfast had a lot of hot and cold options. Staff was courteous and helpful. Location is not within walking distance of downtown shops or race track. Value for price is a good choice. We stay here every time we come through Ruiodoso.

    « Relaxing stay »

    Good , clean, relaxing , will stay again I'm sure. Breakfast was good but could be improved if compared to a few places I've stayed. But still was enjoyable. Not complaining at all. Pool and all were always kept clean. Nice stay!!
