Taking the kids to Carlsbad Caverns on the way to Texas. I have been to Carlsbad Caverns many times, so I knew exactly where this hotel is located. Really the location is the only reason to stay there. There is no other hotel closer to the entrance of the park. Choosing any other hotel would mean going to Carlsbad which... More

Pros: big clean rooms, comfortable beds, safety, convenience to the caverns, peaceful, decent wifi and the "water park". Cons: limited dining choices. only 1 restaurant. it's a 40 min roundtrip to Carlsbad otherwise. The "water park" may or may not be fully operational. During our stay only 1 slide worked one day, the next day neither slide ran. Kids didn't... More

You can tell the hotel is an older hotel, however the service was friendly and the rooms are spacious. They have a fridge and microwave at no extra cost. The pool was fun for the kids and they operate the water slide after check in time, which is 3 pm. The hotel is located across the street from a souvenir... More

So we have been taking our grandson and granddaughter on a tour of the national parks. Our first stop was Carlsbad. My husband and I have been here many times before and my last review of this hotel wasn't as complimentary. In fact my tip was to bring your own pillows, but now you won't have to. There is new...

Room was spacious and clean. Got there at 9:00pm and there were NO restaurants around hotel to eat. Had to drive 25 Miles back to Carlsbad to find restaurants. Closest to Caverns so great location. Front desk helpful. Water park would be awesome for kids.

This hotel may be old but it was clean, the rooms were big, the beds average comfortable, and the pool area is really cool! The best thing is it is close to the Caverns so it was easy to get there at night to see the bat flight and to get there early in the morning before the crowds. They... More

Have stayed here twice. Kind od a sad little town - can remember as a child when Carlsbad Caverns was a more popular destination, this place was popping with a little amusement park, tram ride, etc. All gone but this motel stays and it is the closest motel to Guadalupe National Park. Rooms dated but clean. Staff friendly. Maid service... More

We picked this hotel because of its location, it was at the Carlsbad caverns entrance. And it had a pool. That is the good about it. Our daughter clogged up the toilet in our room. We tried to call front desk but the phone did not work at first. Then when it did my wife said they hung up on... More

Girlfriends' trip to the Carlsbad Caverns and Rodeway Inn was our base. The front desk staff was knowledgable about local events and attractions. Beds were comfortable, clean and maintained rooms, good proximity to the Caverns, we would stay here again.

This was a great hotel. We got in late and left early. Wish we could've taken advantage of the pool. The room was HUGE! We had 2 doubles on the second floor so the ceilings were vaulted. Comfortable beds and pillows. Clean room. Breakfast was small but sufficient. They have pizza available for $5, too. I would definitely recommend.
