I had stayed here years ago & thought it would be fun to return...not! No updating had been done. Noisy A/C, outdated room, drapery in front of door made it difficult to open; breakfast was good and special care was put into it.

Loved this place. Location was the best and the views were wonderful. We enjoyed the staff and the Tavern food was great. This place may be called "dated" by some but I prefer charming. The room was spacious and clean and the State park was minutes away. The town did not have

Our room was very clean. Bed was comfortable. The room had TV, microwave, refrigerator and more towels than we could possibly use! Plenty of soaps, shampoo and so on. The price includes breakfast. There was an excellent choice of foods for children - adults. Breakfast

Overpriced...bed as hard as a rock. Had to stay on the 2nd floor...no elevator. Very small bathroom. The strangest thing was the heating/cooling unit. If I were a bit shorter, I couldn't have reached the controls to turn it on! Oh, and the wifi does NOT work.

Thank you for choosing Elephant Butte Inn for your recent trip to the area. I would like to apologize for the few complaints that you addressed. We do have a handful of rooms that our AC/Heating Unit is mounted on the wall, there is a separate thermostat control located on the wall for your convenience. Being in a semi-rural area we do have times when our Wi-Fi / internet in general does not have the fastest speeds available. We encourage each and every guest to always inquire at the Front Desk when a problem arises so we can better serve you during your stay, we are here to make sure your stay is enjoyable.
