This is the only motel in Whites City that is only 7 miles outside the park. Everything else is 20 miles away in Carlsbad. This worked great for us because we got in late but were able to catch the bat flight and as tired as we were after driving from San Antonio didn't have a long drive back to our hotel.
The rooms were clean, had bare minimum amenities. No fridge, no microwave. Beds were not terribly uncomfortable. Kind of springy. Other than that we had no issues. The walls are pretty thin so in the morning we could hear our neighbors talking. I would spend ONE night here to see the park, but probably no more than that. The little water park was pretty neat, would probably entertain your kids for hours. And it was sparkling clean in the pool and water park area. It is a little pricey for what they offer, but with no competition I guess you can charge what you want.
When we checked in we were told that the "continental breakfast" is just packaged muffins and juice. We didn't even bother looking at it.
White City itself....SUCKS. They don't sell beer anywhere lol. And the one restaurant is EXTREMELY limited. Everyone is really nice and helpful though. It's just a weird little abandoned town.
