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. We stayed for a week in August and I can't say a single negative thing about the staff or accommodations. Everyone was friendly, welcoming and helpful... More

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

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... More

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. More

It was great.The restaurant and lounge stayed open late for the weekend to acommadate all the guests. The outdoor pool was so nice great water temp. Staff was so friendly and helpful. The Elephant Butte Lake and State Park is within 5 minutes of the motel. We will definitely stay here again. Didn't have time to try the spa, but... More

With Memorial Day around the corner, Travelin' Jack the bulldog and I decided to beat the crowds to Elephant Butte....AND especially to avoid the crowds at the lake who are 'roughing' it in their tents. We chose to go the other direction and luxuriate in the 'casual elegance' of the Elephant Butte Inn & Spa, that is... ....pet-friendly! Not only... More

The Inn is an upgraded motel venue. The room is very well appointed and had all the amenities you would expect in a large city hotel. The room was equivalent to staying at a Hilton, Hyatt, et al. The staff is very friendly and attentive to your needs. We did not have an opportunity to try the restaurant for an... More

I highly recommend the Elephant Butte Inn we could only stay one night but very happy to have stayed here! Reception and lounge staff friendly, professional and very helpful. Good food in the Tavern!
