This was an off season visit so we did not use outdoor amenities. The room was large, clean, and offered a flat screen tv, microwave, refrigerator, and coffee pot. The bed was comfortable and furnishings were nice. They offered cereal, muffins, waffles, and coffee in the office with a tray to take back to the room. The wifi was hard... More

We stayed in room 234. Single king bed. Room was huge, and super clean for an older, budget hotel. We asked the front desk when the rooms were renovated, and were told 2 years ago. If that's the case, the cleaning staff is top notch. There's a small breakfast offering in the mornings that's sufficient. If you're going to Carlsbad... More

After the rather brutal hike in/out at the Caverns, and given that I was headed south to Guadelupe NP, I had no interest in backtracking 25 miles to Carlsbad. Fortunately, the Rodeway Inn in Whites City is right there at the hwy junction just 7 miles from the caves. There's nothing here except the motel, one restaurant, a general store... More

Stayed at the White's City Rodeway Inn while on a trip to Guadalupe Mountains and Carlsbad Caverns national parks. While the hotel itself is old, the room was large and clean with plenty of towels and a nice size flat screen tv. This hotel is right at the entrance to Carlsbad Caverns National Park and a short drive to McKittrick... More

I arrived the day after a rare blizzard. The desk guy has been there for a couple of days and is clearly exhausted but surprisingly chipper and accommodating. Helped with getting a stuck door open (binding because of the ice from the blizzard). Made sure everything was there in the room. The room was large, warm and comfortable. The continental... More

Rates were reasonable. It was off-season. The playground looked inviting. So did the pool. Too bad it was closed. Our room was spacious, clean and well appointed. Breakfast was indeed on your lap but you could sit outside and say hi to other travelers. I kind of appreciated the break from early morning news programs.

How can you not love this place?! Talked to Roy even before I left home, such great hospitality at the office! :) Room is very clean, got everything one needs, fridge with freezer, microwave. Yes, price is higher because of its great, convenient location to the cavern, the closest, only 7 miles. Did have problem accessing kids website via their... More

The room was okay, although overpriced for off season and with horrible internet. My problem was with the manager Tony. Upon returning home from my trip and noticing that there was an additional $12.53 added to my charges, I called the office to inquire why. The manager said I must have made purchases at the restaurant or gift shop. When... More

When I booked this hotel the other reviews made me nervous but my experience here actually made me join TripAdvisor to make this review! It was much more reasonably priced than the nearby Carlsbad motels, and although the decor is dated the bed was huge, the room was spacious and very clean and tidy. I have no complaints about my...

The room was very large, and the mini-frifge had a real freezer which we like to have. It was reasonably clean, and the beds were comfortable, but slightly on the too firm side for us. The price was much better than we could find in Carlsbad.
