All the hotels were twice the average in Carlsbad NM. This hotel is definitely low end. I wouldn't recommend for a family vacation. I would stay with guys on a Hunting/fishing trip or like many other guests appeared to be oil field workers. The room was dated and not cleaned very well. The bed was firm and pretty comfortable.

The room was clean, but it smelled. The beds were like sleeping on the ground.. Fairly quiet so that's good.. My kids went to go swim, but the water was ice cold and the hot tub didn't work very well.. For the price, I probably would not come back here...

Carlsbad, NM is not exactly the motel mecca of the world, which is unfortunate because right now, they need a lot more hotel rooms. If you are going to Carlsbad Caverns or passing through this area, BOOK AHEAD! There is an oil boom in the region and every single hotel and motel in Carlsbad is sold out every weeknight. Rooms...

check out most motels in Carlsbad NM this is by far the best for overnight or longer. not overly priced like most. clean rooms with full kitchens. comfortable beds, good free Wi-Fi and large screen TV and nice indoor pool. even with the full kitchen they still had free breakfast. rooms are more like an apartment instead of a motel,...

For starters they need to remove the "suites" from the name. I advise anyone and everyone to NEVER EVER, stay here! Under any circumstance! You would be better off sleeping in your vehicle if this place is your only other option!! I didn't even stay the night. I stayed all of 5 minutes before I went back to the night... More

Entering our non-smoking room it stunk really bad... then noticed a dirty towel on the floor which obviously had not been vacuumed in a long time and the desk was not cleaned. Then going into the restroom was even worse... the toilet seat had urine all over the seat and there was pubic hair in the shower. Went to talk... More

After reading the reviews here, I had set my expectations quite low. It was better than what I was expecting! Rooms seemed clean. A little overpriced, but when I booked, it was the only reasonably priced hotel available. The oil field workers were noisy starting their trucks at 5am. The breakfast was not worth it - some cereal, pre-packaged pastries,... More
