I recently spent two nights at the Hotel. Wonderful up to date amenities in my comfortable room with an amazing view of the Elephant Butte Lake and distant mountains. Conference facility across the street. Plentiful parking, beautiful landscaping.

Recently stayed at Elephant Butte Inn and Spa. Wonderful facility. We had rooms that overlooked the lake for a only a few dollars extra. We had chairs and table in front of the rooms we could sit and enjoy the view and have a snack. Very friendly staff and clean rooms. Great buffet on Sunday, morning and very nice bar...

This is a motel, so I am reviewing as a motel and not comparing to any hotel. If you want a nice place to stay with a view of the lake, this should be your choice. There are much cheaper places in town, but no lake view. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I liked that the...

We've made the Elephant Butte Inn our "go to" hotel when visiting Elephant Butte. While not all rooms have been "updated", the accommodations we've had over the past several years have been clean and well maintained -- making for a restful night after a day on the lake. The front desk staff is great and very helpful.

We've visited the Elephant Butte area three or four times over the years and began to stay at the Elephant Butte Inn several years ago. Each stay at Elephant Butte Inn has gotten better.

Thank you for your review on the Elephant Butte Inn & Spa. When you return to our Inn, please let the front desk clerk know that you have small children and would prefer a floor on the first floor. This is a beautiful area; we hope you enjoyed the recreational amenities while you were here.

A recent visit to the Inn was met with service beyond what could possibly be expected from any chain hotel. The 4th of July celebration at the Inn was an incredibly pleasant experience, All-American food coupled with live music and a thoughtful seating arrangement made for a great way to view the annual fireworks at Elephant Butte Lake. Unfortunately, it...

Dear Las Crucen, Thank you so much for the kind words. We are thrilled that your 4th of July weekend was up to your expectations, with the exception of the rain. However, the rain proved to be only a 15 minute delay in the beautiful fireworks! We certainly hope to see you again in the future.
