Check-In & Check-Out Process

What time is check in?

Check-in is at 4:00 pm, and staff is unable to release keys until 4:00 pm. If guests arrive prior to approved check-in time, we kindly ask that guests make other arrangements and plan accordingly, as keys are not released and access codes are not active until approved check-in time.

Check-in and check-out location varies by property. For check-out, keys are returned to the same location as check-in. Please refer to your rental agreement and/or check-in instructions email, and please contact Ruidoso Vacation Rentals with any questions.

The contracted Guest must be present at check-in and provide ID. If alternate arrangements are necessary, please contact us in advance, so we may let you know if we’re able to make other arrangements.
You may be asked to provide a government-issued license and vehicle information (make, model, color, license plate information).
Check-out is at 11 am.

Trip Planning

Are additional guests allowed at my vacation rental?
All properties have established Maximum Occupancy limits, as listed in the Rental Agreement. At no time during your Reservation Dates are Guests to exceed the Maximum Occupancy for your Rental Property. Occupancy is defined as the total number of people at the Rental Property at any given time, not only overnight guests. All guests, including daytime visitors, must be registered on your Guest Registration.

We supply you with a limited starter kit of toilet paper, soap, paper towels, and dishwasher detergent for your convenience. There are several shops you can visit nearby to purchase supplies for your stay.

We recommend bringing the following to your Ruidoso rental: trash bags, paper towels, laundry detergent, dishwasher packs, and extra toilet paper.
