OK, let's get this out of the way. If you're looking for luxury accommodations, look elsewhere. If you're looking for an excellent bang for your buck in a great location in Ruidoso, look no further.
Let's start with the facility. This is an older property. It was built in the early 70's and it's showing its age. The decor is definitely vintage 70's Ruidoso, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. That said, there are signs everywhere that they staff are working on the property and improving it....but really, it does the job nicely as is. For $89 a night....about the price of a budget motel...we got a comfortable one bedroom condo with kitchenette and fireplace. The property is on Mechum drive in a great area of town, and is close to Ski Run road, Cedar Creek, Bonito Lake, and minutes from mid town. It's conveniently located, but still relatively quiet. They have an outdoor hot tub which was great on a cold evening.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. They go out of their way to help you. Couldn't really ask for more. I would (and likely will) stay here again. Give it a try if you're wanting even a weekend in Ruidoso.
