“Gorgeous Hotel at the foothills of Organ Mountain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

This hotel was amazing. My family, who complains about everything in hotels actually could not find a thing to complain about. First impression of the hotel is amazing, you walk in and the and decor look very Old Spanish, and New Mexican at the same time. If we were not so tired i would have taken a lot of photos because the hotel was just that beautiful.

This is actually now our favorite hotel. It actually bumped off a very nice historical hotel right across Alamo off the number 1 spot. That is quite a feat!

George (?) checked us in and was so very helpful. He made the check in process very easy. He called to check how our room was about 30 minutes after check in. I asked for a whole lot more towels and shampoo and conditioner. Normally, we get attitude because we always need a lot of shampoo and conditioner (my daughter and i have long hair). He was very helpful and sent some up without any problem.

We did get the room because of a groupon but i have to say that next time we are in Las Cruces, we will be staying at the hotel no matter what.

Quick Notes: The pool was just as gorgeous as the pictures. Pets are welcome and you are not treated poorly for having a pet. They were doing some maintenance on the floor in the lobby which smelled bad but did not take away the perfection of the rest of the stay. We did not get to try the restaurant but it looked amazing. Also, it has a super cute shop in the lobby. Location is great close to downtown but you are also right across from a mall. Wish we stayed longer.

The silver coin margarita in the restaurant was perfection. Exactly the right formulation to make an excellent margarita to go along with great chips, salsa and enchiladas.

The room was average but clean. The bed was comfortable. The front desk staff were friendly and willing to do what was necessary to make your stay pleasant. But, the walls are paper thin. I was awakened by out of control kids in the next room after midnight having a pillow fight, screaming and giggling. The front desk agreed to have security talk to them and it settled down, until 2:30 am when it started again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the end of a hallway to avoid noisy children

Thank you Donna C for your feedback.

Our margaritas in Gardunos is a huge attraction. We have a wide variety of margaritas and a tasty menu to please just about anyone. We are happy that we meet your lodging expectations and will apologize for the children near your room. I hope that you will continue to stay with us when traveling to beautiful Southern New Mexico.

Every stay at the Hotel Encanto is a pure pleasure! William at the front desk is as friendly and welcoming as though he were an old friend! "Hospitality" is the by-word at this fine establishment!
"Mercedes Salon and Day-Spa" on the lower level of the hotel is really world class! Robert Tellez is probably the MOST TALENTED hair stylist and colorist I have ever seen!I have followed Robert since 2009 when I moved to Las Cruces. Since moving away to Dallas last year to work for a major airline, I fly back every six weeks for my "Hair Maintenance" with Robert!I just can't go to anyone ELSE!
In addition, Diana Medina and Danny Cadena are also very talented! Try "Mercedez Salon and Day Spa"! You will NOT be disappointed!!

We have traveled to Las Cruces many times and stayed in several different hotels. We discovered Hotel Encanto a couple of years ago and immediately felt welcomed by the beauty of the hotel and the friendly, helpful staff. The new pool and garden area are a greatly enhance the ambiance place. This is our favorite hotel in Las Cruces.

This is one of my favorite places to stay. the food is good and it is a lovely place to sit by the fountain. There is a very nice pool with beautiful surroundings. What a great job they have done here. If you are in the area or you live nearby and want to get away ... you will enjoy this

From the friendly front desk welcome to wonderful housekeepers, I felt at home at this hotel. The lobby is beautiful and welcoming, and the pool area is spectacular. I did order room service twice, and was not thrilled with the food. It was fine, but not as delicious as I would have expected. My room was a great size, clean and nicely updated. I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel. It is close to a great restaurant-The Pecan Grill, the mall and other shopping. Great location and wonderful hotel
