“Good Motel at a Good Price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2009

I stayed here in April 2009. The motel is run by some nice Indian couple (from India). The price was about $55.00 per person. The room was nice, good cable tv, and a good internet connection. The pool was closed though. The motel is about a 1/2 hour drive from Carlsbad Caverns. I would say that if you are going to see the caverns or Guadalupe Mountain this would be a place to stay (good price-good room). The motel is kind of in the middle of no where. The nearest restaurant is about 5 mile away. They had a lot of contruction works staying there. You could hear some road noises but the motel was prety quiet. Not too much night life in the area, just bars, grocery stores, and restaurants.

its a decent hotel. the rooms are clean and neat. the furniture looks a bit old, but for business puropose it was okay.I just spent the night there.the bathroom is nice and clean.
I'd've liked it more if they used white sheets on the beds, but they are using the ones with prints.maybe to cover the stains i dont know.
anyway, the hotel has no elevator, so you have to take the stair, which wasnt bad for me, but may be hard if you have large luggages. Location of hotel is good, its located around 2 or 3 miles away from carlsbad city center.

This place looks as dumpy on the inside as it does on the outside. The people staying here were ghetto. We complained to the management that the people next door were being very loud and she kind of took care of it, but we had to call back to compain again before she really did anything about it. The worst part about staying here is the managements insensitivity to guest who want to actually sleep past 7 am. All three mornings we were woken up way to early by the cleaning staff who starting cleaning rooms at the crack of dawn, talking loudly amongst themselves and in general banging around. Don't stay on the second floor since the breakfast room is there and you will hear all the traffic from that.

This hotel is very basic as previous reviews have mentioned. The hotel has not been updated since the 80's. Other than that, the rooms are VERY clean. I was satisfied with the price and service.

We stayed at Super 8 after visiting the Carlsbad Caverns. It was perfectly fine and they had waffles made with a waffle maker for breakfast. It was pretty basic but it worked out very well for the one night we were there. Room was clean and safe.

This is your basic Super 8 -- reasonably sized clean rooms off the main road in the center of town. The continental breakfast was okay -- do-it-yourself waffles, but no fruit, kind of hard to eat healthfully. Lots of fast food chains in the area. Carlsbad Caverns are about a 30 minute drive away. Hotel staff was reasonably friendly.

The hotel was pretty nice and clean on the inside. No real complaints about the inside. Outside however, there were about four shady-looking stray cats that greeted us as we got out of our rental with a growl and a hiss. Who can blame them though, they were trying to keep us away from their dinner....what looked to be a dead bird. The view out of our room was a dumpster. However, the staff was very nice and the price was reasonable for what we got.
