“Great location, needs a lot of work”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2008

Crownpoint Condominiums is a timeshare in Ruidoso, New Mexico. Maintenance has really been neglected. A new management company took over about a year ago and they are doing a lot of work to try to catch up. They are replacing boards on the exterior siding and have completely replaced some decks. We were in building #8 and it doesn’t appear that have done much except paint the walls. The carpet was filthy! The manager told us that they have no weeks when the units are empty so it is very difficult to schedule the units for maintenance. The week in October we were there was the first week in several months that they have had any vacancies. On the plus side, housekeeping did a great job keeping the unit as clean as possible and everybody at the resort was friendly. We had two maintenance issues (inoperative AC outlet & broken microwave) which were immediately fixed. The views from buildings #1-6 were very nice, looking over downtown Ruidoso. Our building had a nice view of the mountains with beautiful sunrises, but we did look over the roofs of another building which kind of took away a little bit.
The pool and hot tub were OK, but the building temperature was a little cool. The weight room consisted of an elliptical, a stationary bike, a treadmill and a Bowflex in a tiny room. The pool table was lying on its side up against the wall. They had one computer to access the internet (never had trouble getting on, but the resort wasn’t crowded). They had wireless internet access at the reception center, but not in your room.
We were in Ruidoso during the Lincoln County Cowboy Symposium at the horse track and had a ball watching some shooting, cooking and cow milking demonstrations. There was great entertainment (if you happen to like country music like we do) and fantastic shopping.
Ruidoso is about 1.5 hours from Roswell which has the UFO tourist stuff and a very pretty drive around Bitter Lakes National Wildlife Preserve. Alamogordo and White Sands National Monument is also about 1.5 hours away to the south and is definitely worth the drive. The white gypsum dunes are an incredible sight.
We drove an easy half-day loop from Ruidoso to Tularosa to Three Rivers Petroglyphs National Monument to Valley of Fires National Recreation Area near Carrizzo and back to Ruidoso. The petrogylphs were very interesting, but could be a tough walk if you have any trouble walking. The Valley of Fires was an awesome display of a 5,000 year old lava field. The ¾ mile walk is completely paved so it is an easy walk wheelchair accessible.
To summarize, the location surrounding attractions were outstanding. In a couple of years, the resort will really be nice if they continue to keep at the maintenance.

  • Liked — The location and friendliness of the people working at the resort
