“Great Time!”
Reviewed 14 October 2012

Had a really enjoyable time in this small town.The hotel was very clean and the management is just amazing. Referred us to amazing restaurants in the area and even gave us a coupon to the hot springs. I brought my two medium dogs and they enjoyed the room and the lake. It was a great time at the lake and we really enjoyed the breakfast at the Tavern. The manager even opened the gift shop for me even after it was closed. It was a great time that we stayed a extra night. A really enjoyable trip to elephant butte and dinner at Kbob's Restaurant was great and afforable place to eat. MUST GO!

Room Tip: The customer service is just like being back in the south to me. Down home comfort and everyone says...

Altogether commodious! Very friendly and clean,the place appears to employ half the town and everyone we spoke with had worked there at least 9 years.
Pool was wonderful, not busy, not lots of chlorine. Great chef - Joan. Terrific service bartender- Sonny. All food and beverages were very inexpensive and extremely tasty.
Room was comfortable and bright.

Room Tip: poolside, ground level

Travelin' Jack, Roving Bulldog Reporter and Pet Travel Guru had his paw-socks knocked off at all the great pet-friendly attributes at this lakeside resort. Here are some of his favorite things about this hotel (and neighboring RV) resort:
1)Rooms are either lakeview or mountainview...with direct outdoor access to the lawn.
2)Spacious rooms with nice accoutrements.
3)Doggie Treat upon arrival (woo-hoo!) includes dog biscuits and potty pick-up bag
4) Lush green lawn, sandy beach area, walking paths surround the Inn.
5) Ivory Tusk Tavern (that serves great NM and American fare) has a pet-friendly outdoor patio.
6) Each room has porch area for enjoying the morning coffees, evening sunsets and chats with friendly tourist neighbors
7) Reasonable pet fees ($15 per stay for small pets, $20 for large pets)
8) Sister RV resort has (are you ready for this BIG PLUS?) a Self-Serve Dog Bath! The easy to use bath is available to all dogs, local and visiting, and is a handy state-of-the-art set up to make Fido (or in this case Travelin' Jack) spotless clean and oh-so-sweet to smell!
9) RV Resort also has smallish but nice partially shaded fenced off-leash park. There is a handy Dog Station nearby to make clean up easy.
10) Elephant Butte city has a walking/biking/dog trail directly in front of the inn. This nice walkway is paved, has shaded covered rest areas, and has Doggie stations AND WATER STATION. The water station is geared to tall people, short people...and DOGS!
11) The staff is very pet-friendly throughout the property...from welcoming Front Desk to Staff to housekeepers and grounds-keepers. The family owned pride in this property is evident. They go to great lengths to ensure a comfortable and pleasant stay for both people and pets!
12) Lobby area and even the Gift Shop are pet friendly.
13) ELEPHANT BUTTE IN EARNS TRAVELIN' JACK'S PRESTIGIOUS 5-PAWS RATING!

Room Tip: Ask for a pet-friendly room. We prefer downstairs rooms. They offer both upstairs and downstairs p...

We recently enjoyed another (our 4th) stay at the Elephant Butte Inn and are happy to report that this place just seems to get better each year. The lakeview rooms are just so comfy, recently renovated baths feel spa like, and the desert air, well kept grounds with pool and fantastic meals in the Ivory Tusk restaurant make this a truly relaxingl stop. The Ivory Bar/Lounge is fun and relaxing with the best appetizers like nachos, guacamole and chips, etc. a must do. The staff are so accommodating and since our last visit they now have a spa offering massages, facials, etc. that l really wanted to try, but our timing wasn't right. We did truly relish the yummy Sunday morning brunch that was only $6.95 for guests and it was more than we could ever eat, all freshly prepared and we even had to go for the chocolate cake--for breakfast? Evenings watching dusk descend on the lake is awesome.

Room Tip: We always ask for a king size, ground floor room facing Elephant Butte Lake.

Elephant Butte Inn is off the interstate for a quite stay. Rooms on the Lake view side all have Micro and Frigs and are very comfortable, great shower heads. The restuarant is super as they use Hatch green chile, their fried green beans are to die for. The grounds are very well maintained with green mowed grass. The view of the lake is superb and the surrise and set are terrific.

Room Tip: rooms on the lakeside are cooler in the afternoon

First stay at the Elephant Butte Inn. Staff was very friendly I can say that everyone I passed by or interracted always said "hi" Check in was smooth rooms where not bad could have used just a tad bit more cleaning, beds comfy, grounds where clean. The free breakfast was kind of sad cold cereal or a beagle no juice only coffee which I don't drink and never saw a employee to see if we had a choice for drinks. Over all I would stay there next time I go to the lake.
