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! Great place to stay while on vacation or stop in on trip from ABQ to ELP, quiet and friendly you'll be treated right!

A small group of friends, approximately 10 people, decided to get away for the weekend and selected the Inn. The rooms were nice. You have your choice of a water view or a parking lot view. I chose the upgrade of the water view. Our coed group returned to the hotel lounge after dinner at the Dam and were informed... More

We spent two nights at the Elephant Butte Inn. It was comfortable and the room was a good size. The bed was comfortable. The room could use a deep cleaning. On the other hand, I realize this is a sports area for boating and fishing. We were fine with the room. The included continental was bagel sad if fins, nothing... More

Our friends recommended this place and we are happy we took the time to find it. The Inn is somewhat dated but cozy, clean and comfortable. The food in the bar & restaurant was excellent. We played golf (awesome, beautiful course), hiked, soaked in the town's hot springs and relaxed. The Inn has a Spa so we enjoyed getting a... More

We just happened along this fine hotel on a tour of the Southwest. We made a phone reservation and were surprised that it was almost full -- a good sign! Apparently the hotel has recently been remodeled. The landscaping, exterior painting, and the rooms are all fresh and appealing. I appreciated the nice modern bathrooms and good beds -- all... More

Online booking remains simple :) Pet friendly, including a chew toy and biscuts with the clean up the poop bag. How can it be nicer? Upstairs room was clean and comfortable, the grounds groomed and the view of the lake is good as its gonna be till the water level comes up. The proximity to T or C is nice,... More

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend and it was very relaxing. There is a trail from the inn to the lake and only about a 2 mile walk. I got a pedicure in the spa which held up for several weeks. We ate in the hotel bar for dinner one night and it was solid typical... More

We stayed for 5 nights over the Thanksgiving holidays and found the entire resort to be excellent. The front desk lady was very pleasant and gave us an extra towel. The bed was very nice, the room extremely clean and everything worked. We ate 2 meals in the restaurant and except for the strange potato salad, everyone was quite pleased... More
