    Has anyone stayed at the Inn of the Mountain Gods in New Mexico? We have reservations in August and was curious to hear what people thought of the place.

    • What type of room to request (husband is a smoker)?
    • Is there anything besides gaming and golfing to do in that area?
    • Was it a nice place to stay?

    Although it was several years ago, we stayed there and loved it. The property is very nice in a beautiful area of NM. Not much else to do on the property but the town of Ruidoso is close by and that's one of my fav places in NM. Nice to stroll the streets and do a little shopping. I don't remember much about the room but only that it was very nice.

    White sands Dune National Park is not too far away and the mountain town of Cloudcroft can be a fun little side visit. Space Center is also close by.

    Stayed there years ago when the place was new. The hotel is beautiful. Rooms and food were both excellent. Ruidoso is a great area for hiking, especially along the nearby ridge trails.

    I never stayed at the Inn but visited a few times. I lived in Alamogordo, NM for three years which is about 45 miles away. I enjoyed the casino and it had a couple of good dining options. The golf course is very nice, but priced higher than it should.

    As mentioned above Ruidoso is a nice mountain town to visit. Lots of shops and dining options. Ruidoso also has a horse track if you like that.

    If you have a few hours to kill you can drive to the White Sands National Monument. From the casino it is about a hour and 15 minute drive. Great scenery and you are close by.

    You can fish they also have paddle boats you can rent. they have a game room.

    Lots of shopping downtown.

    No alcohol allowed on casino floor (New Mexico state law)

    It is a nice place to stay and play

    Wendells is a good place to eat

    We spent some time in Ruidoso a few years ago. While we didn't stay at the resort we visited several times. The casino was OK. Very smoky. I played a round of golf. $100 if I remember correctly. As others have reported there is lots to do in and around Ruidoso. Golf, National Forrest, Horse Racing, nice selection of resturants, trolling a small town in the mountains. It also, usually, has much cooler temps n the Summertime.

    later, GVJ
