This is a great place to stay if you are going to the Ruidoso Race Track with very clean rooms and comfortable beds. They served a full hot breakfast. The staff was very friendly and the hot cookies at the front desk hit the spot. Rooms located on the back side of the hotel are the quietest.

"Mixed Feels"

First of all, the staff is very nice and helpful. We felt welcomed by everyone. Love the pet friendliness of this hotel and the location. The lack of attention to the physical details of this property was very surprising. The buckling carpet in the hallways, cracked and broken floor tiles in bathroom, and the feeling of unstable flooring leads me to believe there are structural issues with this hotel or that it just isn't properly maintained. More attention to the maintenance details would greatly improve this property. Time for a overhaul.

"A nice enough place to stay in a town in the pines of New Mexico"

As usual, the staff was very polite and welcoming. As for the room I was assigned, it was nice, well appointed and clean. The bed was extra comfortable and so was the arm chair. The main issue I had was with the very slow speed of the Internet connection (there is supposedly only one provider in Ruidoso thus there is no competition, therefore no impetus for them to improve their level of service). The breakfast was good although there was no sliced fresh fruit as in many other hotels, including La Quintas. Also, there was an issue with my credit card which I had to insist that they clear up. The problem was that there was supposedly a security alert on it. The problem was resolved the next morning only after I explained to the person at the reception desk that I had checked in to the matter online and had seen no such alert. All in all, I had a pleasant stay.

Great pet friendly experience; convenient to the Ruidoso Downs Race Track and Walmart; exceptional TV and Wi-Fi service; great beds; very clean, very good check-in experience; good, hot breakfast; good, functioning A/C. Back of the building is the quietest of most major hotels/motels, with a distant view of only a mountain.

The La Quinta in Ruidoso is a great place to stay. It is in a beautiful setting and is a great place to relax and enjoy yourself. The accommodations at La Quinta a top of the line. The rooms are clean and spacious. The service is great and the staff is friendly. We enjoy swimming in the pool, and the hot tub is wonderful. The breakfast was very good with a variety of well prepared foods. It is well located near many fun things to do and enjoy and close to many good places to eat. I think you and your family would enjoy staying at the La Quinta in Ruidoso Downs in New Mexico.
