I've read several reviews of this hotel and just felt I need to tell you of our great experience. The positives were many: Check -in and out was a snap. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We were in #233, a corner, by the stairs room. I was dreading the upstairs, but it was PERFECT. I recommend that room: near the stairs and no problem with noise. The room was huge with 2, very comfortable,Queen beds. The AC worked perfectly with thermostat. There was a newer TV (approx. 30") with remote; all worked perfectly. The shower area had been re-done with slate tile and the curved curtain bar; all nice, clean and worked perfectly. I always have to hunt a place to plug-in my cell phone, but not here. Plenty of outlets within easy reach to plug those charges into. There is a microwave and frig in the room. Our grandson used the WiFi and said it worked without problems. He also takes a little longer shower than normal, but we never ran out of hot water! We would stay here again without question. We didn't stay here because of the pool and didn't use it, but did see several people enjoying it. It isn't huge, but adequate with a nice small pool for the toddlers.
The only least than perfect was just the basic Continental Breakfast. It was coffee, tea, juice and muffins. Since that was 'as advertised', I really wouldn't call it a negative...it was just what I expected. So bring some extra snack/breakfast items if you want more in your room. There is a restaurant just around the corner that opens early for breakfast. We didn't try it so can't comment on the food. The restaurant doesn't stay open late (8pm), so if you are going to the Cavern's evening Bat Program, you should either eat before the program, have items in your hotel room to eat or plan to drive into Carlsbad for dinner after the program. The restaurant will be closed when you come down the mountain.
We loved our brief stay here, but would stay at this hotel again when in the area.
