We stayed at the Roadway Inn, White City because it was the closest hotel to the caverns (Carlsbad is 20 miles away) and the prices in Carlsbad were very high. I was pleasantly surprised. Our room was very clean and spacious. We had a microwave and a refrigerator which was a bonus. There is only one restaurant in the area... More

+ Really improved the rooms since we were here 5 years ago - the carpeting, tile, counters, etc. have all been replaced. - They should have replaced the pillows - these are not hotel quality pillows! By the first morning I woke up with a migraine headache. We had to drive into Carlsbad, NM to buy new pillows. + Staff... More

Large room, water park a plus because the hotel pool was not well maintained. Except for the pool, we were happy. Breakfast was not fancy but adequate the breakfast rolls were 4 dollar each at the cafe at the caverns.

Close to the Caverns, we were able to come and go to various Park activities without a lot of driving time. The water park with two big fun slides and a kiddie pool was a big plus. The regular pool was also pleasant and stayed open until 10 p.m. The staff was nice and the room was cool and quiet.... More

Good campsite but bad sleeping... too many glaring streetlights that keep the birds up all night... and me too. Next time I'll drive a little farther to camp. But if you must stay close to the national park, then tent or RV camping is fine. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Dirty, musty smelling, hard mattress. Those are just a few of the things wrong with this place. Apathetic management. Horrible restaurant. At least we think it is horrible. We waited forever to receive our food. Rude desk clerks. Next time, we stay in Carlsbad.

I booked this room for the water park - as I imagine many people do. I am by no means a snob and thought I could deal with the sub par room ammenities in exchange for a few hours of joy from my kids. When we arrived the lobby STUNK - it smelled like a dirty bar. We went to... More

Hotel room was dirty. Had someone elses dirty clothes on the floor, and some kind of bug that resembled an ant, except it jumped, in the room . The toilet also ran for at least 5 minutes after each flushing. I informed the office , he said that the maintenance man was not there. All he did was shake his... More

We stayed in Whites City and it was pleasantly surprised! We had read the reviews online and we were just too tired to drive 35-40 minutes to Carsbad NM. So we just stayed at White City. We were surprised! The Hamburgers we sooo good at the resturant and the people very friendly. The water park was nice for the kids,... More
