My husband and I have 6 kids, ages 3 years to 10 years. We were very skeptical about staying here with all the reviews but after driving by on our way to the Caverns and not spotting any serial killers hanging out by the office or razor blades in the pool we went for it. I have to say, I'm... More

Stayed here for the location to the caverns and like the other reviews say it left some to be desired but overall it was fun for one night. But we like the crazy kinda motel wanna be a hotel... sometimes! The room was ok. No crazy things to report. Just a plain jane room. One perk... The night sky was... More

There are too many things to mention, so I will hit a couple of the highlights: The commode was less than clean. When we had an issue with our remote, the desk clerk showed up with some guy in his pajamas. We assumed he was the maintenance man and that she woke him up to come to our room. We... More

I spent two nights in the campground while visiting the caverns. Overall the campground is ok. Its got flush toilets, and showers, potable water throughout the property. But something just felt off about the place. Perhaps it was the fact that during peak tourist season, this campground was literally just outside the national park entrance, yet was mostly empty. Also,... More

There might be a better tent camping area somewhere within 50 miles, but I haven't see it yet and am always open to suggestions. The tent camping area has more handily available facilities than most I've come across. Water within a stride, bathrooms close, and even showers. And a short walk brings you to Restaurant, Gift Shop, and Grocery. The... More

First unsure to make a reservation because of the previous reviews but afterwards lucky that we did and positively surprised! First of all, White’s City is a very convenient location to visit Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalupe Mountains National Parks. We were accommodated in Walnut Inn. The room was spacious and very quiet and clean. The restaurant was very good. The... More

White’s City is a great location to reach both National Parks Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalupe Mountains. We stayed in Walnut Inn. The room was spacious and absolutely quiet and clean. The staff of the motel was very friendly. The restaurant (JJ’s) was very good and the staff was very friendly as well. We did not have any of the following... More

OK, I read all the bad reviews about this place. However, I look at motels/hotels in this price range as a PLACE TO LAY MY HEAD at night. And the fact that it was closest to the caverns got my interest. Also, we had 3 kids (7,9,17) and they have a small clean waterpark in the middle of a hot... More

Stayed in RV parking. was charged twice for one nite's stay. Better accomodations at Carlsbad. The store staff not real friendly. Hotel person who overcharged me, very friendly? Was told is under NEW managment, but they have a LONG ways to go!

The hotel is close to the caverns, and so is sort of stuck out in the middle of no where. It was clean, but had no refrig. or microwave. The restaurant is ok - somewhat limited menu. We stayed there 4 nights and were pretty satisfied.
