Sitzmark Chalet Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Small family run establishment backed up to a mountain was a god send. We are travellers who do not expect the hotel to be the destination and highlight. Sitzmark is a cozy oasis in the city. Low key atmosphere, restful setting under the trees where we could gather with our friends and discuss our day at the track or the many nearby attractions. The rooms were charming and the beds were comfortable. We will definitely book our next Ruidoso visit with Sitzmark.

This is my second time to stay there and I'll stay there again. It's quite comfortable and makes me feel good It's across the street from a great store in right up the street from Midtown Ruidoso

Small but comfortable room, fridge and micro BBQ,s available. Coffee and muffins in the morning but not available until around 7:30. Good location.

There was a mix-up in regards to the room that we had originally booked. We had booked a king room, but instead were given a double queen room, with a freestanding fire place. It was meant as an "upgrade feature" I believe, however it placed us very close to the road and traffic noise. The hosts were very nice, and the room was very clean. All in all, a fair price for a fair room.

was in ruidosoo for ems conference, took my family, we got ground floor rooms-perfect. rooms are large,had everything we needed in there. king size beds were very comfortable, great shower head and water flow. nice quiet location, setting is nice. hot tub great, private.no breakfast bar, but no problem for us, rooms have mini fridge, grab some snacks, fill it up. parking kind of small but you can see your vehicle from your door. will definitly stay again when in ruidoso.oh yeah, free wi-fi too. owners very pleasant. on last day conference did not let out till 1pm, later checkout was not a problem, no extra fees, very appreciated.

We were looking for reasonable overnight accomodations while traveling through the area. The Sitzmark Chalet is centrally located with Ruidoso Village on the main road between the Alto ski areas to the norht and Ruidoso Downs to the east. When we arrived in early afternoon we were expected, as my name was suggested by the receptionist when I said that we had a reservation. The staff is friendly, answered questions, and was solicitous to any needs. They helped us with several questions. The rooms are very clean, the bathroom was obviously recently renovated and spotless. The hotel is located within walking distance of the shops and restaurants -- this is the main part of the older part of Ruidoso.

I loved this hotel and so did my boyfriend, the little fireplace was very cool and everything was clean and nice. The bed was great and the senery was beautiful.

Family Reunion.

Hotel has 17 units and is a non-chain which we like and prefer. Very clean and remodeled. Public hot-tub. Our room was spacious and had a woodstove! Also had coffeemaker, microwave and mini-fridge. Owners very friendly and helpful. Right down the street from the Cattle Baron (highly recommend!) Restaurant.

Mainly there just to sleep. we were visiting friends who own a condo. nice and quiet and comfortable bed. Friendly staff. Will go back for sure.

Very honest and helpful staff.

We just needed a quick getaway and this was a pleasant surprise. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was very clean and quiet. At check in, we were accommodated with a room with a fireplace. The hotel was located close to little shops and good restaurants. We will consider staying here again next time we need to getaway for the night.

The room was clean but could have used some air freshners. It smelled old...but other than that, it was nice. I would not stay more than a day or two here, but one night was fine.

The room looked newly painted and the bathroom tub and fixtures looked brand new. The king sized bed was very comfortable. Everything was very clean. The atmosphere was casual and inviting. The down side was that there were zero annemities. There was not a resturuant on site nor did they offer a complementary breakfast. While there was a very pretty area out front to sit if you wanted to, there was not a swimming pool, exercise room, etc. There was a spa but it was not open. All in all, it is a quaint motel and we enjoyed our stay.

We enjoyed that the bathroom was a sep extension and that the sink was separate. we also liked that they used large towels for the bathroom. we used the coffeemaker, the microwave and the fridge and all three were very clean. I told the manager we would stay there again if we skieed again at ski apache.One day i walked into town and shopped while my family was skiing so that worked out great.

Fireplace in room was a nice touch. Very cozy room. The beds were very hard, like sleeping on concrete & the sheets still had hair imbedded. The parking here is very limited and hard to get in and out. The only place I've ever stayed that had colored towels. The only reason I stayed here a second time is because all other hotels were booked.

The Sitzmark Chalet has a very cozy and cute Alpine atmosphere and decor. Our room was large, neat, and well maintained. The shower has new fixtures and the shower head accommodates tall people. The vanity could be improved by providing a rack for hand towels and face cloths. The towels are soft, plush, absorbent, and are in a variety of warm colors instead of the standard white towels offered by many other lodgings. We didn't like the mattresses and pillows, which are very firm and prevented us from having a really good nights sleep. The Sitzmark Chalet is located in central Ruidoso and is close to shopping, restaurants, and within driving distance of other attractions such as Ruidoso Downs Racetrack and Casino, Inn Of The Mountain Gods Hotel and Casino, area ski resorts, golf courses, and other local attractions.
