Had lunch in the tavern and was pretty good food, and of course, it was clean. The staff at the front office and the tavern was friendly. The pool area was closed due to winter season, but... More

This was a standard type of Inn. The front office staff where very nice. The room was typical two beds with lights attached to the walls. Hard time accessing wifi. Entrance from the outside. I had view of the mountains and the parking lot.

Its a 2 1/2 hour drive from El Paso (where we live) and it's just far enough to enjoy nature. El Paso is mountains and desert and within a short drive we are in nature with a lake and beautiful sunsets. The Inn is 15 minutes from the lake and accommodates boaters. Across the street they have an RV park... More

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... More

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... More

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.

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. More
