The contemporary design style of Inn of the Mountain Gods Resort & Casino fits beautifully into the high-altitude mountain setting. The hotel stretches along the edge of Lake Mescalero, with a towering central lobby area featuring a multistory panoramic window for fabulous vistas over the lake to the Southern Rockies, and 12,000 foot Sierra Blanca peak. Although the sleek and streamlined building takes a step away from the more usual "Native American hotel" look, it blends harmoniously into the Mescalero Apache tribal lands, framed by majestic ponderosa pine trees and New Mexico's enormous blue skies. The resort’s 273 guest rooms and suites echo a modern design but pay tribute to the Inn's Apache heritage with serene Southwestern décor and Native American influences.
