Funky atmosphere, crappy food, very much should have went somewhere else. Will not try again. Did not try the salad bar so I can't help you there.

My sister and I wanted to go out and have a nice dinner with a glass of wine. These type of restaurants are few and far between around this area. However, the meal was good. What really startled me was paying an "ala carte" price for the salad bar that DID NOT come with the meal. The food wasn't exceptional... More

We had two queen rooms for our family as we stayed here for our visit to Carlsbad Caverns. Rooms were large, very clean and fully equipped with everthing we needed. Beds were comfortable and location was quiet so we all slept very well. Buffet breakfast was one of the best ever with many choices of freshly prepared items. Service at... More

The food was good, but I thought the menu limited and the prices fairly high. Located at a very nice hotel, I think they have chosen to reflect the influx of oil money to the area.

The Restaurant food was pretty good. I had chicken fajitas. It was very tasty. The atmosphere was nice. One sign that food is good is when police officer eats in the restaurant.

This is not fancy dining, but I thought it was excellent for the type of restaurant it aims to be: a reliable, comfortable standard American restaurant. The ribeye steak was good quality and cooked just as I asked; and well seasoned. A "vegetable medley" is usually a soggy blend of canned vegetables. These were freshly sauteed in a white wine...

the food was really good and at fair prices. The wait staff were all students at the local university and were polite and intelligent. The dining experience was pleasant and I would choose it again if I were in Carlsbad.

Nope, not all Best Western hotels are the same. This one was outstanding in every way...service, cleanliness, breakfast, bed, pillows, bathroom, amenities, and relatively close to the Caverns

Overall, this was a very clean hotel with friendly staff. We came here for a friend's wedding and this is the hotel that was recommended by the bridal party. It was pricey for the type of hotel, but all of the other hotels in Carlsbad seemed equally as pricey. The breakfast buffet was free and pretty good. The main drawback... More
