Hotel Encanto offers a free shuttle service, available to all registered hotel guests, which will take you anywhere in the Las Cruces and Mesilla areas (within 10 miles).  The shuttle will pick you up and return you to the hotel with just a phone call to the dispatcher!

Room rates are drastically reduced down to just $107 (about $124 w/tax incl) and that rate is good for either a single King bed or double Queen bed room. Please make sure that you mention" PORSCHE CLUB" or "OKTOBERFIESTA 2016" when reserving your room. Only 40 rooms are blocked right now, although additional rooms may be booked if they are available.  For quick reservations, call the hotel's front desk at 575-522-4300 and when the voice prompt begins, press "0" to receive quick, courteous service from the hotel reception desk staff.

All guests renting sleeping rooms during OktoberFiesta 2016 will receive complimentary breakfast at Garduno's Restaurant and Cantina, located on the ground floor of the hotel adjacent to the atrium and fountain.  Please show your OktoberFiesta 2016 name badge to the hotel staff member at Garduno's. 

The hotel manager has granted OktoberFiesta participants reserved, taped-off parking in the North parking lot for security as well as for the "bling" factor, of course!  There is ample parking for trailers, motor homes, busses, and cars on all sides of the hotel property if you choose to park elsewhere.  All parking is conveniently located close to entrances.  Special guests will be afforded parking very close to the main entrance of the hotel.
