Anywhere else this inn would cost half of what they demand in Carlsbad. But this _is_ Carlsbad, and that makes this price relatively correct. The standard is simple, the beds are good, and free coffee in the reception helps. The pool is nice and necessary after a day under ground in the caverns. Barbecue buffs can use the grills outside,... More

Second the animal slept in the bed, when I turned down the sheets there was animal hair all over the bed. So i called and asked for new sheets. The lady brought them and told me... More

We booked this hotel from Travelocity.com before leaving Phoenix. We were planning on driving all day and staying the night before going to the caves and we didn't want to get stuck without a room for the night. The website showed all hotels booked for the night with only one room left at this hotel so we took it. When... More

We were on the road and booked hotel through Booking.com after reading reviews from your site. First, booking.com claimed only 2 rooms left and price was far less than chains. When we got there, very few cars in lot. Woman manning the desk appeared to be living there with children. It is an old 2 story hotel which had been... More

Stopped in this mom-and-pop hotel after checking out a chain hotel and was appalled at the NY City prices they wanted. This hotel was friendly, more reasonable, and clean. We had plenty of room, a fridge, and all the essential amenities for traveling and staying one night. Would recommend for those who are on a budget. The bed was reasonable... More

We booked this trip through Expedia around Feb/March time frame to travel Memorial Day week. We arrived - upon check in the person at the counter told me that I booked early and his prices have changed and I would have to pay the higher rate. I showed him my Expedia reservations with no such wording and told him he... More

Place was very dated, but appeared clean enough. Make sure to bring all your toiletries, they have none. Don't expect much, a little overpriced for what you get. It's close to the caves if that is your stop and right off the Main Street.

Priced right, $70. Could be a little cleaner. Make no mistake, this place is beat down. Old blankets and comforters, most of the reviews are spot on, I don't understand any of the glowing reviews, they must be fake. I asked for a iron and got probably the only one they had and no ironing board. This area Is crazy... More
