Dirty, Air conditioner does not work, bugs everywhere, and it comes with its own baby bat. If this were the only place that had a room, I'd sleep in my car. They look a lot better from the water, that's about as close as you want to get.

Our recent stay for one night was horrible. When we entered the cabin with the staff member the person had a broom to sweep the "critters" aka cockroachs out of the cabin. Maybe that should have been done prior to our arrival? The overall feeling of the cabin was scary!! Very out dated, poorly cared for. Only 2 burners on... More

We enjoyed our one-night stay at the Damsite Recreation Area. The location and views right at Elephant Butte Lake can’t be beat. As other reviewers have said, the cabins are old but clean, and the 2-room cabins are really 2 bedroom cabins with a living room and 2 separate bedrooms.

The fact you don't have to drive anywhere at all the entire weekend and can walk to the marina, the bar, to fishing spots, the park, the cabins, bait shop, the lodge and to the restaurant and bar was super relaxing and...

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... More

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... More

“Ledge rooms are very nicely renovated and have flat screen TVs and cable. Cabins are rustic.”
