If you are coming for either the white sands (just 10 short minutes away) or even carlsbad caverns (definitely worth the commute), this place is truly the only option. No where else will you find a better combination of comfort, hospitality, and value than at the Tavares Inn. An open bar, indoor pool, and 1st class pool table are just the tip of the ice berg. The house is spacious, clean, beautiful, and conveniently close to the white sands. The breakfast would rival (Im sure top) any local restaurant. The host and hostess were friendly, helpful, and respectful of our privacy (hardly ever saw them). I highly reccomend this place to anyone and everyone traveling through!
