Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We have only been here for four days into our 28 day stay(we originally were going to stay for a week, but decided to stay longer because it's so comfortable). Rocky is the owner who is very accommodating... this is located in a great location but most important is how clean and comfortable it is. I would highly recommend this...

We were so pleased with our stay here..Thanksgiving in Ruidoso was great. This motel was just as it should be-clean, comfy & we could access our room right from the vehicle, just a few paces away! The room was cozy with plenty of space for the two of us. Yes it's true, not all of the who-ha that many of...

Immaculate, Immaculate, Immaculate. Nothing fancy but the cleanliness is top notch and so is the price. The bed sheets and the comforter smelled freshly laundered. Most motel/hotels do not wash comforters between guests but the comforter on my bed was obviously freshly cleaned. Who needs a fancy unclean room, when you can have clean reasonably priced rooms at the Arrowhead?...

Carol thank you for taking the time to write a review. I honestly am so appreciative of when people take the time out of their busy day to stop and tell other people about what we are doing here at the motel. We have big plans for the future and the only way we can achieve our dreams for this...

The motel was very charming and cozy. For an old motel, it was maintained very well. The owner said that he is planning on making some upgrades as finances allow. The location was perfect and the scenery is beautiful. The beds were very comfortable and clean. The bathroom was a little small, but still big enough to move around in....

Well October has been a wonderful month for reviews. I couldn't be more thankful for you to take the time from your day to write it. And we do have big plans for our small motel in the future. But keeping the rooms clean and comfortable will always be our first concern.

Nice retro motel of course the beckoning neon brings back memories of days gone by. The room was nice and clean and Rocky was nice and personable. There is a bit of road noise, being early October leaving the screened windows open accounted for this. No negatives, would recommend the outside chairs be replaced or at least a few added...

Thank you for your review Rick. I have some good news in that I did finish switching television providers and we are now up and running with over 100 channels and a premium movie channel. And I will agree that maybe the new Adirondack chairs can be hard on those who have knee problems, but I do have others available....

Thank you for your review Carl. It's a bit hard to make out what happened in your review, but it looks like some of the questions were shown as your words. I did notice at the end where it asked what you liked best and your response was, "friendly owner", well thank you very much. I look forward to seeing...

This motel may be older but it comes with the charm of yesterday that others lack today. Where nowadays does one get colored sheets with print pattern? I am not sure if all rooms have that detail but ours did. Cleanliness is of utmost importance to me, and even the corners were immaculate. I booked this room by phone, and...

Carol thank you so much for taking the time to write the review. It's very special to me when someone takes the time out of their busy day to do so.

This motel is under new ownership and they have done a great job of renovating it. The new owner and his mother are very friendly and knowledgeable about attractions in the area. Every evening most of the guests can be found visiting in the chairs located outside the rooms. The rooms were very clean and neat. All in all a...

Thank you for taking time out of your day to write us a review. I see you mentioned how people enjoy sitting outside and visiting with one another.

Thank you so much Barbara for your kind words.
