This hotel is outside the entrance to Carlsbad Caverns. All other hotels one might stay in for the Caverns involve a good half hour ride to the Caverns in the morning. . We checked in and when we were about to enter our room, we heard a dog yapping in the next room. We then heard a cow mooing nearby.... More

I was a little worried after reading some of the Trip Advisor reviews, but this Rodeway Inn was perfect for our needs. We were close to Carlsbad Caverns and the price was right. We were checked in by an older gentleman, given what turned out to be an accessible room on the first floor, and it was great! Super quiet,... More

I did a lot of research for hotels near Carlsbad Caverns before I left for my vacation, and the one thing I discovered from TA reviews was that the hotels in the city of Carlsbad were quite pricey. The one and only hotel closest to the caverns is the Rodeway Inn in Whites City. This is not a deluxe property,... More

The absolute best part of this motel is the distance to Carlsbad Caverns. It is literally down the road. The hotel is definitely older and a bit run-down but you can tell right off the bat that it is taken care of. The staff is friendly, there is a breakfast served (fruit, juice, muffins, etc) and most importantly, the hotel... More

Nice place, rooms did not smell of smoke at all which was nice. Outside of the hotel, the whole White's City area is a big let down and really run down. The hotel staff was nice, fruit in the morning was good and just down the road from Guadalupe Park and Carlsbad Park. Rooms were clean and no issues at... More

Hotel employees were friendly, prices low, breakfast and internet free. The hotel is located fight off the highway and very near Carlsbad Caverns. Our stay was quiet and uneventful- which was just perfect. Groceries and.gasoline was expensive so be prepared by having some from an earlier stop. Only knocks - internet slow at times and room could have been slightly... More

We chose the Rodeway Inn in Whites City, as we went to visit the Carlsbad Caverns, a visit will never will forget, what a awesome place. Our room was very roomy, clean, very comfortable. The room was a little more than we usually spend on a hotel, but the location was our selling point.

The Rodeway Inn in Whites City is not a new motel, but it is very clean and could not be any better located to go to the Carlsbad Caverns. The daytime receptionist, Mara, is truly a gem. Through no fault of her or the motel our reservations got mixed up; she would not give up in getting everything straightened out... More

Due to it's proximity to Carlsbad Caverns & Guadalupe Mountains, we opted to stay here rather than stay at the over-priced hotels in Carlsbad (due to the oil boom). The hotel was bleak but the room was large with a fridge & microwave, the bathroom was tiny but decent & the sink was outside which we like so one can... More

Our room was basic and clean. We arrived at 12:30 am and the attendant was kind and helpful. We found the stay restful and enjoyed our proximity to the caverns. There is not much near the hotel except a very modestly stocked grocery store, a restaurant, and a Shell gas station.
