"One of the nicest La Quintas we have stayed in"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 11, 2014
Joyce S | Coppell, Texas
Nice hotel in a nice town. I've found La Quintas to be hit and miss, but this was one of the nicer ones. It was fairly close to downtown Riodoso by car, the lobby was very nice, and the rooms were clean. The breakfast was okay, but I would stay here again.

"Careful with this one"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Aug 5, 2014
Jim N | Somewhere in Texas, United States
The staff was very kind. The bedskirt was dirty and the sheets were clean but stained. A handle was off the closet and was lying on the counter. We gave it to someone in the hall with the cleaning staff & she said she'd get maintenance. Three days later it was still not fixed. The bathroom was still dirty after the room was cleaned. Breakfast was typical with several choices. Avoid the eggs! The worst powdered eggs I've ever tasted! Waffles were good. Cereal was fresh.

"La Quinta"

Easy to find and get to. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. The staff was helpful and pleasant. Have stayed here before and will do so again. The motel is located near the race tack, not far from downtown Ruidoso and it is absurd that more words are needed that is necessary to describe this property. I think I have given it a good review and that should be enough. You do not have to write a novel like WAR and Peace to get the point across. Stay here if you want a nice place at a nice price. Stay some where else if you want to pay more for the same thing just so you can brag about it.

"Great pet friendly family place!!"

My family of 3.5 stayed just after Christmas. It is one of our favorite La Quinta Inns. The pool is a gray feature out spending the day in the snow! The staff was awesome! I could not have asked for more. In fact we are currently planning our trip for next year definitely on the list is this hotel!!

"Super Place Stay"

Billy M | Lubbock, United States
Great place to stay. We always stay at La Quinta when we can and recommend it to anyone traveling. Their rooms are always large and roomy and the service is A-1. We always eat breakfast and the food is always good and hot and excellent. We like La Quinta very very much and do recommend the hotel to anyone who wants a great place to stay.
