Great Hotel

Hotel was very comfortable and very clean. The Hotel has a bar located inside with free drinks for guests and the breakfast is just as good as if you were eating at an iHop.

Nothing too "elegante" about it.

Staff is great. Except the people at the front desk.

Nice Hotel, not too family friendly..

Very nice hotel... I really liked the set up and feel.. The water park was fun for the kids but the water was very high in chlorine and foggy.. I didn't think the rooms were family friendly.. They don't have mini refrigerators or microwaves to accommodate families with children..

Comfortable bed, dated baths and rooms. Good food.

Having seen Hotel Elegante in our hometown, I thought we would give them a try when traveling. It was an old Holiday Inn, that had some improvement in the rooms- newer beds and flat screen TV. Bathrooms, carpets and decor is dated. Still usable and comfortable, just dated. Rooms were clean. Breakfast is a full New Mexican buffet: eggs, bacon, sausage, hasbrowns, biscuits and gravy and Chile sauce that was great. Also waffles, cereal and oatmeal. Some canned mixed fruit too. Priced great for a stop along a longer trip, but wouldn't stay for an extended length. Front desk staff was great, other staff wasn't as friendly or eager to help.

Had a great stay at the hotel

Pros: In addition to the above mentioned, breakfast was great. I also liked the abundance of towels and washcloths. I often have to request more elsewhere
Cons: The message light wouldn't stop blinking even after reporting it and the internet was barely accessible in our room. I finally gave up.
Location: I understand there was a shuttle that would take you to old town and around but we were just there for a night so didn't try it out.
We were pleasantly surprised with our stay at your hotel. I had seen some reviews that almost made me change my reservation. We arrived and were greeted and got our room quickly, with complimentary drink coupons for happy hour. The bar was quite active and fun. Our room was nice and we ate dinner at the hotel restaurant - the bar was a bit too noisy for us to eat there. We had the chili rellanos and they were excellent and the service was great. We didn't get to the pool or the gym, but enjoyed our stay.
