Arrived after dark with no reservation. Guy said they had 2 rooms left with 2 queen beds for $95 plus tax. When I paid he sent me out on the street to an adjoining property (sign said Cavern Inn. Entrance has an empty beer can, twigs and bird feathers. Inside was worse. 2 Twin beds that moved and rocked like... More

We decided to stay here due to the proximity to both Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalupe National Parks. Hotel was clean and comfortable. The location was marvelous! Only minor complaint was that everything associated with the hotel (restaurant, shops, etc) closed up rather early so dinner needs to be planned ahead of time.

Like many other travellers, we booked a room here purely for its proximity to Carlsbad Caverns. The room was spacious and quite well equipped but the carpet clearly hadn't been vacuumed and the overall impression wasn't exactly one of cleanliness. When the air conditioning was turned on there was a distinctive smell of stale cigarette smoke. We hadn't realised quite... More

White's City and this, the ONLY hotel, are close to the Carlsbad Caverns (Carlsbad is 20 miles further away as we came from the west) but that's about the only thing good to say. We arrived at 6:30; the check in guy was fairly surly but did tell us to go right to the ONLY restaurant as it closes at... More

We stayed here because it is close to Carlsbad Caverns and reasonably priced. We reserved 2 rooms to include family members arriving from Houston. Both rooms were large, clean, and functional. It looked like the bathrooms and adjacent area had been recently retiled. The pool and surrounding area was clean. I can't see paying $100/$150 per room per night more... More

Pros: it was close to Carlsbad Caverns and the rooms were a good size. Cons: the room was dirty as if housekeeping spent 5 minutes preparing it. The floor was messy, the bathroom littered with hairs, unclean toilet, used coffee left in machine and the roof starting leaking water during the night because heavy rain. Service was average. Cost was... More

Very convenient to Carlsbad Caverns, which is he reason to stay here. Room was good size, and clean. But don't expect too much, and you won't be disappointed! The restaurant (two lots over, a separate establishment) closes at 7 pm and there is NOWHERE else to buy or get food in Whites City - so I had to drive back... More

Phone didn't work. Found manager who said we could use RV park shower down the road. No offer for compensation for inconvenience. One place to eat. . Only redeeming factor is that it was near Carlsbad Caverns, 20 mikes from town.

We stayed here one night in August, 2014. On the drive south, before we even got to Carlsbad, we saw signs advertising shops, restaurant, museum and the Rodeway Inn in White’s City. The motel was not what we were expecting. White’s City consists of two motels which are still in business, a restaurant which closes at 7:00 pm, a museum,... More

Stayed here over Labor Day weekend for one night as we wanted to save a night drive back into Carlsbad. The hotel is old, with no restaurant and the continental breakfast is Otis Spunkmeyer muffins and boxed juice, which continent serves that for breakfast? There is a grocer across the road but it closes at 8:00 PM... Food options in... More
