It smelled very clean when we entered the lobby, but went downhill from there. Like others have said, the rates are about double everywhere. I didn't want to pay 550.00 for 2 rooms anywhere else. This place was cheaper, but you get what you pay for here. It did appear to have several oil field workers and remodeling people that... More

The rooms where gross. Old and smelled old. The shower didn't get hot more like Luke warm. The beds are like sleeping on a rock. They messed up my back really bad. The staff was bad. I had maid service banging on the door at 7:30 in the morning and check out is at 10 or 11. They knocked twice... More

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...

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
