“Best weekend in a long time!”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

I came here with a friend as a change of scenery from El Paso. We had taken a day trip about a month earlier and came here on a recommendation for dinner. What a treasure this place is! The food was tasty, the bartender and wait staff were so friendly, and the sight of Elephant Butte is amazing. We decided to come back and stay for a weekend. The lodge is newly renovated and there are also cabins that are slowly being renovated. We got in late, but Jonathan stayed and waited for us. Not only that, but he let us look in the remaining open cabins and choose the one we wanted. Most people would not have had that patience so late in the day! The next day we enjoyed the bar, restaurant, car show, and band that was performing. Reuben (the owner) greeted us and talked with us several times that weekend, as well as the bartenders (Randy and Terri) and even some of the cooks and housekeepers. Brad at the marina helped us with our fishing gear and offered some tips. The only bad thing is that we didn't catch any fish. They even have a shuttle that will take you to some of the hot springs, into town, etc. Our cabin was very comfortable, the water pressure was amazing, and we had plenty of space. I will definitely come back here and stay again. Dam Site is a must see and will be on my list of favorites!

Room Tip: Cabins have a bit more privacy than the lodge. All are arranged just a bit differently.

Reviewed 16 July 2011

It is very run down, the price is average for the area, I have been coming to Elephant Butte for over 40 years, and this is by far the worst place I have stayed. It smell like urine, the air conditioner only heats the small little kitchen area its in, the beds are hard, the windows do not have any screens, spider eggs on the walls, Check in is very inconvenient, you have to check in at the marina. Very bad experience all the way around, I would have paid anything at any other place if they had an availability.
