When you travel and stay at hotels these days, you will be hard pressed to see much difference from one chain to the next. Sitzmark is different. The property is well kept and they have grills for guests and a sauna. I had a great room (26) which looked over Ruidoso's main street with views of the hills and trees...

My wife and I spent night here on a road trip. We arrived without a reservation in early August. We were warmly greeted by the owners and offered a nice second floor room for $72!! The place reminded me of my childhood road trips with my parents. You actually got a key to open the door. Not a card. The...

This is a small family run hotel that used to exist in the days before large chain hotels. It is clean, well maintained, well priced, and has a friendly staff. The room was large and the bed is very comfortable. The hotel is on the main road but our room has some type of noise generator which gave out a...

We loved everything the Sitzmark had to offer. The staff were friendly and helpful. They even allowed us to check out one night early without penalty when one in our party became ill. It's a quirky place with a lot of character. Very clean and plenty of room for what we needed. If traveling again to the area it would...

We booked last minute in this hotel since there was a snow storm and we couldn't get to the hotel we originally planned. When we arrived we asked the front desk lady if we could see one room to decide if we stay. She accepted and we got to see the last room available that night. The room was a...

As the saying goes, there are always two sides to every story. Even though you waited six months to leave a review, I do remember you as a guest because, as the owner of the property, it was me who checked you in. We are a very small family owned establishment, and we follow strict guest rules for the comfort...

Nice, clean place for the money. Owners were responsive to our needs. Only downside was a not so comfortable bed. The good thing was the great location. On a busy street, but quiet later in the evening.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Sitzmark Chalet is nestled under the tall pines of Ruidoso, NM. Our charming 17 unit inn offers the distinct personal attention that every traveler desires for a relaxing mountain get-a-way. Our classic regard to detail and customer service is something that you just can't acquire in today's cookie-cutter chain lodging atmosphere. We are located in the heart of Ruidoso close to restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. With a wonderful central location, you are close to all of the vacation activities you have been looking for. Relax on the front lawn during a summer evening on a porch swing while watching the hummingbirds, or unwind after a day on the slopes in our steam sauna. We look forward to having you as our guest! ... more   less
