Strategic yet peaceful location in Ruidoso

Negative Reviews

Wi-Fi access may not be very reliable

Although the lodge offers free Wi-Fi access throughout, some guests are still not satisfied with the Internet signal. They complained that the Internet on-site is slow and unstable, making it hard for them to go online and attend to different important matters.

Some beds are a bit lumpy

All rooms are well-furnished. However, some guests mentioned that the beds are a bit uncomfortable due to their lumpiness. This is just a minor problem though, as you can just ask the staff for additional modes of cushioning.

Rooms seem cramped

There are some guests who pointed out that the room is small yet it has so many furniture! This was a bit uncomfortable, especially for those guests who prefer to have enough space for them to comfortably move around.
