Stayed one night. The hotel has been updated. Friendly service. Rooms nice and bed comfortable. We had a gas fireplace and small balcony. We were there spring break for a day of golf. Kids were everywhere and running the halls. Kids being kids. But once 10:00pm came it all stopped and we had a great night's sleep. Breakfast buffet was...

Room was clean and beds comfortable. Breakfast was ok. Biscuits a bit hard and hash browns not very "browned". They do have an omelette bar , but I did not try one. Grounds are beautiful! I would stay again.

Thanks for your review leannadanna, and we are glad to see you will be back again on your next trip to Ruidoso! I'm sorry that the breakfast wasn't up to par on that day. We sure attempt to have a top notch breakfast every day. Next time be sure to try the great omelets, the breakfast chef makes his signature...

I stayed at the MCM Elegante this past weekend while being a vendor at the VInes in the Pines Wine Festival taking place next door at the Ruidoso Convention Center. The location was great. My first night was great. However, my second night was far from great. I had spent all day vending at the wine festival, went for a...

Thank you for the review of your recent stay. I apologize for the less than perfect stay during your recent visit to Ruidoso and the noise caused by some other guests. Seems they were celebrating and having too good a time at the expense of their neighbors. Our staff did respond upon hearing of the noise and the offending guests...

Really impressed with the price we paid for what the value we received. Quiet, spacious, friendly, great views, and wonderful complimentary breakfast. Parking lot was large enough to more than compensate for a full hotel and the fireplace in the cool evenings was a welcome sight after skiing

Hotel staff was very friendly. We requested a late check out & were granted that with no problems. Hotel is clean, room was very nice. We had a beautiful view of Sierra Blanca out our window.

We made our 2nd stay here recently and we very pleased with the improvements. They have updated the pool area which is indoors and awesome after being on the mountain all day. Again breakfast was so, so good -- pancakes, omelets made to order, sausage, biscuits and gravy, hashbrowns, and more. Staff working breakfast were very nice and super helpful....

I see several glowing reviews on this site. My experience was not the same. The rooms are dated and tired, although the bed was newer and comfortable. The hotel is full of animal lovers who brought their pooches with them. Hard to sleep with all the barking etc. You can play golf if you don't mind dodging puppy land mines,...

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. I'm sorry that your stay was less than perfect and that you had to endure barking noises at night. You didn't mention whether you called the front desk about the noise; we do try to contact the dog owner under these circumstances. We don't have a full...

Wonderful place to stay for a family vacation in Ruidoso, NM! We loved the large, clean rooms with balconies and VERY comfortable beds. We had awesome views of the property. Each morning we could see the wild elk in the snow. Free breakfast was offered every morning. We thought it was pretty good. Hot and cold items were available along...

Thanks for your great review. We are glad that you had a great stay while in Ruidoso. The elk herd sighting is really amazing, around 50-60 elk grazing on the golf course early in the morning. This is an occasional sight, but really cool when you see them. Also glad your dog enjoyed the dog park as well. Come visit...

Positive attributes -Clean rooms, free wifi, family friendly, free parking, free breakfast Negative attributes - charged credit card (not debit card) for full stay without alerting us, charged again when we switched one room for another, only available meal was breakfast, it was sub par, daily maid service was inadequate

Thanks for your review, Janith789. I'm sorry that your stay was less than perfect. Just for your knowledge- credit cards are authorized for the full stay upon check in- plus a small amount in case there are bar charges or gift shop charges, etc. The card is not actually charged until check out. It's smart to use a credit card...

Recently purchased and remodeled to a point. New mattresses and carpets. WiFi is slow and boggy. Nice staff and lounge for large family sit downs. Nice bar. Needs food in afternoon and evenings, but the food is limited to breakfast only. We have stayed here for past 10 yrs each season.

Steve T, General Manager at MCM Elegante Lodge & Resort, responded to this review

Thanks for your review, A R. I appreciate your repeat business! Our guest wifi was slowed by the incredible holiday crowd, but I'm happy to report that we are getting our own dedicated fiber optic wifi line installed by March. I'm told it will be super fast. Hope to see you again next holiday season if not before!
