We checked in at night, very tired and only there for one night. At the time I was so exhausted I only cared that we had a bed. However, if we had intended to stay longer I would have either complained to the manager or just left. Our room was so filthy, there was literally trash on the floor under... More

Maybe the people who have rated this place highly arrived at night. We, unfortunately, had several hours of daylight in which to take in the disgusting sights of the Rodeway Inn of Whites City. Here are some highlights from the grounds: dirty socks amid other debris in the parking lot, rusted railings, sticky stains, a half eaten slice of pizza... More

Originally I booked this place for 2 nights to go see the Caverns, thinking we'd move to Carlsbad (20 minutes farther) if it was a dive. Definitely the Rodeway is not a dive. We stayed 4 nights. Rooms were big, and the 2nd floor rooms have a vaulted ceiling to give the room a spacious feel. A/C worked. Fridge/m'wave, coffee... More

I really wish we could have spent more time here. My partner was eyeing the water park and the pool, but we just didn't have the time. The night we were to check in, we kept calling the hotel to let them know we were indeed still coming and to hold the room. Eventually we arrived..after 11PM! Had a great... More

This Rodeway Inn cost far less than the places in Carlsbad, and since it is located at the entrance to Carlsbad Caverns Nat. Pk, it is very convenient. It is older style, with rooms opening to central parking area. Our king room was clean and spacious, with micro/frig, new coffeemaker, hairdryer, flat panel TV. Bed was comfy (firm), A/C worked...

Our room was upstairs and had a vaulted ceiling, which made the room seem large. The beds were comfortable and the a/c worked great! This hotel is the closest you will find to the Caverns. Actually, at the time of this review, it is the ONLY hotel in White's City. It was alot cheaper than anything in the city of... More

The first thing we noticed when going to the Rodeway Inn was the waterpark. Since we live in the Fort Worth Dallas Metroplex, we are used to massive waterparks; you won't confuse the one in Whites City with one in a large city. Despite that, it was a busy place with lots of kids and parents enjoying it. We enjoyed... More

We enjoyed our stay here. Young lady at the front desk was very welcoming, rooms were comfy and clean. Prices were very reasonable. Would definitely stay here again. We have no complaints.Not a big breakfast....just a snack but food is 20 miles down the road in Carlsbad. If you want a cold brew you should get it before arrival...the little... More

This motel was in need of some updating on the outside. All I can say is it was satisfactory. The carpet could have used a vacuuming, the shower curtain needed a good washing but it was OK to say the least. The complimentary breakfast was just packaged muffins and located at the small front desk area. So I recommend bringing... More
