Nice room, grill was spotless, as was the room. Large comfortable courtyard. Hotel rooms we searched for did not meet our needs The Inn exceeded our expectations. We do not hesitate giving the Inn a high rating.

The Fiddler's Inn was a wonderful place to stay in Carlsbad! The rooms are decorated so well, they are roomy, comfortable, and all the little details make the stay here extra nice! The little details, from the chocolate chip cookies every day, to the bottled water in the fridge, to the great service all add up to make this a great stay!

My family and I are moving across country and decided to visit Carlsbad caverns along the way. I stumbled upon the Fiddlers Inn and I was very intrigued. Definitely not your run of the mill hotel. Very quiet and private. We loved the decor and charm and the space we had in the Orange Blossom room. Every detail down to the treats on the bed side tables was excellent. We would gladly stay here again.

We stayed at Fiddler's in on our way down to Texas. We also visited the Carlsbad Caverns nearby, and this location was great. It was my husband's hometown, and we wanted a neighborhood experience for our hotel. Fiddler's Inn was perfect! Their customer service was excellent. Jenn was so patient with all of my questions, and I asked a bunch! The room was beautiful and clean. Breakfast down the block was excellent. We will stay there again in a heartbeat. Thank you for a wonderful time!

My mom booked me a room here for my first birthday away from home. When I arrived, not only was the room extremely neat and tidy, but it had balloons, a bottle of wine, my favorite candy, and a birthday card waiting for me! This bed and breakfast went above and beyond to make me feel happy and at home - so far away from home! The room was very clean and VERY comfortable. I highly recommend this place and will come back if I am ever in the area!
