I have stayed here for 10 years and this is my last. Non smoking room with burns in the floor, pillows and linens smelled like ash tray. Rate was higher than the rest of my oarty paid at two other popular motels. TV was terrrible reception, wireless internet was questionable most every time you tried to use it. Over all... More

We spent the night of October 4 in this pleasant hotel. The innkeeper told us he recently put in all new beds. They were fantastic and we had a great night's rest. Lovely area. Affordable accomodations and very pleasant staff. I recommend the breakfast at Jorge's for delicious Mexican food. queentess

We were traveling from Minnesota to AZ. Fortunately we happened to book a room at the Days Inn, Ruidoso Downs. It was a great stay with the most comfortable bed I have ever had the pleasure of sleeping in. Front desk service was great and cheerful. Very nice facility and great value. Only complaint; I missed breakfast, over slept, beds... More

We have stayed in many different places during our visits to one of our favorite spots and have now found that Days Inn offers us the most convenient location for everything we like to do and at a very reasonable price. The room is clean and comfortable and check-in and out is very pleasant. Close proximity to the race track... More

(Sitzmark blows this hotel out of the water in room quality and service if your wondering) I saw another review here about the Hotwire deal and the problem with the king bed. Basically I reserved...

I didn't know what to expect from a $70 room in Ruidoso. I was pleasantly surprised. We had a king bed non smoking room that had a small living area with a couch, microwave, coffee pot, fridge, desk, nice big flat screen TV, VERY comfy bed, jets in the tub, very fresh and clean. It was very quiet. We didn't... More

...but I'll write a review of it. I made a last-minute decision to make a weekend trip to Ruidoso. The Inn of the Mountain Gods had no availability, and I didn't have time to search the cabins, so I just went through Hotwire. It was $79/night as one of their "blind" bookings, which is too much for this place, but... More
