Property location and hosts are absolutely great. The property is older but reasonably well maintained and clean. The area is extremely quiet. The kitchenette areas are not well stocked enough for our liking but overall for price paid this is a good value in Ruidoso.

The condo we stayed in was magnificent. Lots of room, 2 rooms and a loft. 2 full bathrooms. Full kitchen with needed cookery. Nice balcony, great fireplace. Hot tub and heated pool were very close to our condo and was nice after a cold day skiing. They even pointed us to a great equipment outfitter on the way to the... More

Extended family of 9 stayed at the West Winds Condos from Dec 27-Jan 1. The location is two blocks from town. Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. And convenient drive to Ski Apache and casinos. The condo has everything you need at a great price. Would definitely recommend and hope to go back soon.

Since I was a child, my family has traveled to Ruidoso to enjoy the beautiful mountains, amazing weather and memorable sights. It is a very special place that we all treasure. When we sold our cabin, we worried that we'd never find another place to stay that we would love as much and call our own. We were referred to... More

My wife and I and our two daughters had the best weekend here this weekend. Rooms were cozy and very clean. Pool and hot tub were perfect. The West Winds Lodge was easy walking distance to the main attractions downtown, but far enough to keep it nice and quiet at night. Especially for our two little ones. The staff were... More
