“Best Hotel in the Area”
Reviewed 20 October 2005

The Elephant Butte Inn (used to be Quality Inn) was a very surprisingly nice hotel. Set on the edge of Elephant Butte Lake State Park it has beautiful views of the lake and the hills at sunset (make sure you get the "lakeview" rooms...rather then the parking lot rooms), very clean and comfortable rooms. The staff was very friendly and the food in the tavern was first rate. A great value all around, I would recommend it to anyone going through the area or needing a weekend "away".

Stayed August 2005

Reviewed 15 June 2005

Got reasonable rates with AAA discount (don't forget to ask!). Stayed in a room on the 2nd floor with a view of the parking lot! Room was large, very clean with great toiletries!

Pool is OK, if a little small. The usual annoyance of children running round and round the edge put us off! Had a very good meal in the restaurant. Good food, well prepared and lots of it! There is also a bar with live music. Clientele was a little odd and raucous so we didn't stay long.

Breakfast was a reasonable buffet of the usual fayre (waffles etc). Overall a good place to stay if you have to be in that part of New Mexico (!)
