With the oil boom in SE New Mexico, there is now an abundance of chain hotels in this small town. However, this modern hotel in a historic building (important distinction--modern plumbing and room amenities in a building that used to be a bank but has been completely retrofitted) is lovely. We were in room 202 which is a large room...

Like probably everyone else, we were in Carlsbad to go to the cave. The Trinity is a great hotel in every way. At one time it was a bank. The first floor is a restaurant and the second floor is the hotel. There are two rooms on the first floor which open to the sidewalk outside. We were in the...

This is an old bank converted to a hotel. Room was on 2nd floor up old but renovated stairwell, no elevator. Room was fine, neat, clean and comfy. It appears the historic nature led to restrictions when renovated. Being a retired Fie Chief, it lacked fire sprinkler protection, but had recent heat and smoke detectors installed. I have been in...

Lovely Room and great restaurant. Even though it was on the main street through town, we had no noise (recommend a back room to be sure). Got back late from watching the bats coming out of the cavern and had a wonderful dinner. Breakfast was good.

As noted in the other reviews, this is an interesting B&B style hotel with a great restaurant. Unfortunately if you are there on a Sunday there is no one on duty (but a procedure to get your room) and the restaurant is closed. The complimentary wine tasting is also not held since there is no one on duty. The neighborhood...

We agree with most comments of reviewers that this is a unique, charming B&B, with outstanding service, and an extremely friendly staff .All other hotels in Carlsbad are chains, but there are several new ones on the road to the caverns that look nice. We checked in on a Sunday afternoon, when the office was closed. Following the owner's instructions,...
