Whenever the temperature begins rising in Austin so does the humidity and before not too long you are at a clam bake on the Maine coast only you are one of the clams. That is when I begin yearning for the higher elevations, the cool nights and sunny days more often than not that ...
After our epic drive from Big Bend to Carlsbad Caverns to White Sands, we decided that we wanted to make a little bit of progress towards Santa Fe, so we'd have less driving and more time to enjoy the town, so we stayed at Chaparral Motel in Carrizozo, NM. Ben had been wanting to stay in a classic American motel and this was it. The owner was sleeping as we pulled in around 10pm; there ...

Overall we had a great day out at the Winter Park, but knew
it was time to go home when none of us could feel our feet anymore! We would of course recommend it to anyone

... mini family/friend reunion!
For being such a small town, there's a lot to do here for families with small children. One of the girls favorite things to do in Ruidoso is ride the ponies at the Ruidoso Park, so naturally it was one of the first things that we did. Grandma, Grandpa, Brady and Mandy joined us and Collin got to go on his First pony ride. Sarah and Lily are now pro's at it and don't want mommy and daddy to help them, or as ...

Well tonight is our last evening and we will be spending it doing what we like to do----so you all may have to send us money to come home..... and then a good night sleep to get up and hit the road. We will be entering our trip home also, so keep in touch!
We love you,

Historical Traveler Reviews Inn of the Mountain Gods Mescalero
We loved it!
Stayed there on Spring break with the kids and rented a suite. All I can say is wow. Lake views, 2 balcony's. Staff was excellent and the gambling was great. Skiing was sunshine and it snowed the last day.
We had a blast. The Buffet was overpriced and food not that great, but you should be eating Rio Cafe anyway.
We stayed at the Inn of the Mountain Gods for three nights in November 2005.
Artwork is everywhere
Contrary to the post I just read, artwork was everywhere. The lobby and open areas had both paintings and statues in the areas the guests traveled from the parking area to the casino. The buffet was fully open and functional. Food was good both times we ate at the buffet. Servers were pleasant and helpful. Weekends were crowded and the buffet line was long and there was a wait. Week days the food was better and there was no line. The picutures I have already posted from the outside entrance was just an example of what was inside.
This is a beautiful facility. The rooms are large, immaculate, comfortable and nicely appointed with a spectacular view of the lake, golf course and mountains. Wonderful to sit out on the private balcony with a cup of coffee and take in the view. Dining choices are limited. Buffet is, well . . . . a buffet. Casino is large although slot machines earn their name of 'one arm bandits'. All in all, it was a very pleasant weekend.
I thought the whole place was just terrific!!! One of the nicest places I have ever stayed. Staff was friendly, very proud of their new facility. Food was excellent. Dance band was super.
Expecting as much excitement as the ads indicate, our visit to the Inn of the Mountain Gods left us wanting more of what we had expected--namely Indian artwork, many fun activities, excitement and a good time. Although we booked the last reservation for this period, the main thing we found was gobs of people of all ages.
We recently visited the new inn of the mountain gods ( we have stayed there before the reconstruction)---the new facilities are fabulous--huge guest rooms with beautiful furniture and state of the arts electronics. two restaurants--Gathering of Nations buffet style--food was excellent and was better than most Las vegas style buffets---upscale dining at Wendells was a great experience--well priced wines but expensive food--service outstanding--the golf course is first class and all public areas beautiful--as noted by other reviews the service is naive--however, evidence of intensive training abounds--this is not the service you get at a four star hotel in an urban area.--casino is very nice good table games--stingy slots--no alcohol allowed in casino--but soft drinks available.
Rude Staff, need Texas Hospitality training!
The place was nice, but staff lacked hospitality training and rude at times.
Staff needs training in the better things in life
Good location. Good sceenery. Food okay. Service - naive at best.
On one occasion, my wife wore a stylish hat in the dining room. They insisted she take it off because, no hats allowed was the rule. I thought that was quite humorous.
They have some pretty good fishing in the lake but no place to cook them. I think if they had an outside fish cleaning facility and a small place to cook the fish, it would help their business.
