Pros: The hotel is nice, very fitting for a ski trip. The bed was great, the room was nice very comfortable . Flat screen TV with Satellite. Morning coffee and muffins. That's about it.
Cons: The walls are very thin, I mean very thin. The couple in the next room talked until 3 in the morning and you can hear everything . I checked Adults only because it wasn't only talking that was heard (intercourse). It was so bad that if you closed your eyes, you would have sworn they were in your room. I feel bad because there was a family with small kids on the other side of them. Oh and the water pressure in the shower sucked.

4.0 Okay
Pros: Once I got into my room, I was able to enjoy the beauty and peace of the resort. The view of the lake was absolutely beautiful. The size of the room was incredible.
Cons: At check-in the Supervisor did not accept my confirmation from In addition I was informed that only comes with "smoking rooms" and if I wanted another room I would have to upgrade for $50.00 per night. It was not a pleasant welcome and a representative from had to call on my behalf. When I finally got into my room, the lock to the outdoor terrace was broken and the handles were coming off the drawer doors. Maintenance had to come in and fix that. I requested a refrigerator and that took 6+ Hours to be delivered and when it finally was delivered it sounded like it was ging to fall apart. I had to call for another one and that one finally worked. Front desk personnel need to learn how to be friendlier to guests. That can make or break your guests from ever returning.

Next morning, we were at the breakfast room at 9:15 (they closed at 9:30). Things were already locked up (although she unlocked the juice for us), and she was sweeping up. When 2 more fellows arrived at 9:25 the hot food had disappeared and she had to bring it back out.
9.1 Excellent
Pros: You can't go wrong with hotel ruidoso. It's clean, friendly and they have an indoor heated pool and breakfast. It's great for kids and family but if you want a romantic stay away from kids this is not the place. There is always children in the pool and the jacuzzi.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was great. Beds were comfortable. Rolled into town at about 4:30, laid in bed and did not want to get off after that. Breakfast was really good. They had eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits and gravy, waffles, cereal, muffins, bagels both days. Didn’t have coffee, so not sure if that was any good or not. The location was great. Only moved my car once the two days I was there and that was just to go to the miniature golf place. Saw some deer behind and in front of the hotel on one of the evenings. Took a lot of pictures.
Cons: The eggs were not that good. One waffle maker with one big family hogging it. Five family members, and 2 and a half minutes per waffle was a little ridiculous. Bed was a way too comfortable that I just wanted to lay in bed the entire time I was there. Hahah.
6.8 Good
Pros: The location is very convienant to the mid town shopping and to lincoln county grill.
Cons: Room cleaning never happened. They slipped a note under the door at 830AM saying they couldnt get into the room and stated to call front desk by 10AM to request it. We usually dont leave our room until 9-930 for any vacation we do. They never did come back even though we called down. Front desk was acting like they were new. The key cards had to be reactivated 4 times each and we were only there 2 nights. Otherwise the room is pleasant for this town.
9.7 Excellent
Pros: The room was great, a king bed and sitting area. Like the layout. We go an end room so didn't have people on both sides of the room and it was quiet and peaceful. The breakfast was okay with eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy, and cereal. Coffee was good. I would definitely go back.
