I drove from Santa Fe (around 5 hours) and wanted to see the bats at night. I arrived at 5:00pm and checked in. The man was very friendly and changed my room to the 1st floor. He gave me the information and I checked in. It was close to the entrance of the caverns, so I unpacked and went to... More

I was here like everyone else for Carlsbad Caverns. The Caverns are maybe about a 20 minute drive up the road, the speed limit decreases the closer you get to the caverns, and the road can get very slow, especially when people are leaving after the evening bat flight programme. After checking in I was given a room on the... More

Literally right outside the entrance to Carlsbad Caverns park, it is the most convenient place to stay if visiting there. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Plenty of mirrors for my girls and myself - this is a big deal now that they are teenagers. Breakfast had several options, including waffles, cereal, muffins, boiled eggs, yogurt, breakfast bars, oatmeal, etc........ More

A little high priced for what you get. You're not paying for luxury, you're paying for convenience. It was very nice being so close to the park. The rooms are aged but clean. Microwave, mini fridge, noisy AC. Walls are paper thin and teenaged tourists kept us up all night. Whites City is a junkyard and does not feel like... More

When we arrived, the gentlemen behind the counter was very friendly. The room was very clean and huge. The breakfast in the morning was very nice, and had a lot to eat. This is the closest hotel to Carlsbad Caverns. This was very nice for a Rodeway Inn. A waterpark is next door.

Got in late and was put in a hotel a few hundred feet that they were managing. Filthy! Bed was terrible, door lock was broken, empty beer cans om step to the door. Aircon made lots of noise, but didn't cool the room. Take the time and drive into Carlsbad town.

Honestly we were a little hesitant to stay here as we normally stay in a higher class of hotel. We were pleasantly surprised. We loved our stay and really enjoyed the pool area. The room was so clean that the bathtub literally sparkled! While the facility itself was a bit dated and the breakfast lacked protein, the staff more than... More

You cannot beat the location of this older motel. Our room was enormous and comfortable. There was a microwave and a refrigerator with a separate freezer door. The shower supplied good hot water. The bed was firm and slept well. It was the quietest hotel room of our entire trip; no corridor, stair, or though-walls noise, despite lots of families... More

We reached this place after a long day's drive and were really ready to settle in. We had booked 2 rooms because we were a family of 8. The rooms were connecting which we loved! They were spacious and nicely decorated and very clean. The air conditioner worked well and was very quiet. The kids with us enjoyed the pool... More

This hotel was better than I expected. It was very clean and comfortable. The inside looks like it has been recently redone. The decor and bedding looked modern and new. The waterpark was a big plus for the kids. The location is the big draw for this hotel. It's the only place to stay for visit Carlsbad Caverns. We visited... More
