Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

It is the only hotel in Whites City, and the closest to the two national parks. Location is perfect to visit to Carlsbad Caverns and Guadalupe National Park. It sits right outside to the entrance of the Carlsbad Nt. Pk. and about a 30 mile drive to Guadalupe Nt. Pk. The hotel could use some updating, but the rooms are...

This is a very well maintained and managed motel. I had one minor problem, but not serious enough to deter from recommending it. Three tiny nails were sticking up through the carpet. I reported it to the front desk and to housekeeping. It had not been taken care of prior to my departure, but I was confident they would handle...

When we got there we were expecting to be able to use the pool but found out it wasn't available at that time. The outside of the hotel is kind of run down including the grounds but the inside is much nicer both in the lobby and in our room. The front desk staff was nice.

This is the only hotel in the area for Carlsbad Caverns, right outside Carlsbad Caverns National Park. But I was very happy with this motel. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. They had a frig and a microwave in the room. The room was clean. The service staff was very helpful as there is no elevator to get up...

This place is trying to improve. The room was large and clean and the beds very comfortable. There were a new microwave and fridge with good freezer. I really appreciate that, as we travel with food, wine, and cool packs that need re-freezing at night. The Internet wasn't speedy but was adequate for E-mail and Search. However, it wasn't easy...

First this a motel, drive up to outside doors, It is an older hotel but has been kept up well and it was CLEAN. They have updated the bathroom, very nice. I would have given them a 3+ review, but the sheets in my room were horrible, pilled and so rough they were difficult to sleep on. If it hadn't...

We selected this hotel based on (a) TripAdvisor reviews and (b) Proximity to the Caverns. The property looks old but you can tell they are keeping it up. Our room was huge and rather stark, but it was clean and comfortable. The television had poor reception; maybe because the hotel is so far from everything. The fellow who checked us...

I wasn't expecting much from a motel located away from a town, but it was a pleasant surprise to discover how nice the place is. The room was modern, very clean, very quiet, and very comfortable. There is a microwave, fridge, and TV set in the room. The built in air conditioner cooler/heater was in excellent shape...quiet and functional. As...

We were pleased with our room. We were only there one night. The room was large and had all the amenities we needed, like a fridge and coffee maker. The breakfast was simple. We took it back to our room because there's no seating. It was no problem at all though and we were happy with it. I recommend this...

We chose this motel solely for its closeness to Carlsbad Caverns, and that really is a big plus: It allows you to get to the National Park before it gets crowded later in the morning. Have that no-frills breakfast that's on offer in the lobby, preferably by taking it to your no-frills room and then head out to the Caverns....
