"La Quinta, Ruidoso Downs"

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.

"Family Vacation"

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.

"Much needed maintenance"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Jun 16, 2014
TimWW_ELP | El Paso
We stayed at this hotel back in 2011 when it won several top awards within the La Quinta brand hotel chain. All I can say is, man what three years of seemingly severe neglect can do. From the rolling carts having flat and torn tires awaiting a law suit; to carpet in every hallway buckled and uneven this hotel is crying out for help. The outside grounds still look appealing but the interior is getting rough without needed constant care. I believe the General Manager needs to get out of the office and do a reality check on each room. What awaits are issues like burnt out lights, broken tile, loose and potentially dangerous threshold marble in the bath room, buckled carpet in need of being re-stretched and tacked down, peeling and torn wallpaper, broken and missing elevator hall lights and stoppers on the bath tub that will not hold water. I could go on, but you probably get the picture. The free breakfast seems to be a hit even though we didn't eat there, the front desk staff was friendly at both check in and check out and it is a non-smoking facility. They do allow a pet friendly environment and if the sound of dogs barking throughout the night bothers you, you may wish to reconsider staying or at least know the air conditioner needs to be on high fan all night.

Friendly efficient personnel in all departments. Clean well appointed room with queen beds. Nice pool and exercise area. Really good Bright Side breakfast with a hostess who was very cordial and helpful. Close to shopping, dining and downtown.
