As long term Choice Privileges hotels users we were dismayed at this one......Carlsbad seems to think it has the right to charge extortionate rates compared to sister hotels in other locations around the country.....guess that is solely to do with the oil related businesses in the area & maybe the caverns but to pay over $100 incl tax for this rundown place (although Holiday Inn Express was over $200) seems completely out of keeping with what is supplied. We parked in a row of vehicles closest to & directly in front of reception because we could not pull up to our room which was on the inside row. Was awoken at 3am with a vehicle alarm....looked out it was where our car was parked...dressed & went out.....the SUV two cars away from ours had been broken into.....not a sole reacted from hotel reception area!....enquired in the am as the evidence...ie the bottle & a an impact glove packaging plus the shattered glass were still on the ground.....the receptionist was non-plussed like it probably happened before... no big deal
....breakfast was abysmal.....coffee had run out....there was nothing left at 8.30am....."lady will be back soon"....she wasnt....we left.....Choice P you should review this one guys!
