We enjoyed the laid-back old style motel. Bunnies, jack-rabbits, quail galore and beautiful back lawn with desert/lake view. Clean and maintained. Bathroom converted to ADA regulations is serviceable. The restaurant/bar is the selling point for us. Everything we have had deliciously prepared. Waitstaff works as a team....all friendly and knowledgeable of their menu and the resort area.

Elephant Butte Inn is a surprisingly well-kept hotel. The grounds were my favorite part. They have a large section full of grass near the outdoor swimming pool overlooking the beautiful butte scenery and full of nature's critters (bunnies and quail). Perfect for little ones to explore! Both indoor and outdoor pools were well-kept and accessible. The room was also clean... More

Beautiful setting and I love that you can see how much pride the owners have in their property. This is great for families or that couple looking for romance.

Spacious, clean & comfortable. Modern bathroom & amenities! We chose a lakeside room as it overlooks the lake at Elephant Butte State Park. They had a wedding there on St Patrick's day so dining room was closed to guests but they served food in the tavern! With friendly staff & good service!
