We were 3 families traveling together toward Santa Fe, tired after a long drive we decided to stay in the closest hotel we could find on our way. First thing we saw, was that the reception looked very filthy and disorganized, but we thought, we are tired maybe the rooms will be just acceptable. The rooms looked very filthy, we...

This hotel is a place to stay for the night on your way through and not much more. Our room was clean and more than enough room for us. The noise level was quiet enough to sleep too. The only complaint was that the people above us made the floor creak a lot but it wasn't distracting. It's definitely not...

Our room smelled smoky and musty. Our bathroom window would not lock. Staff was not very friendly. Filthy carpet. Only the doorknob locks worked. Not the deadbolt. Not a safe place to leave your things for a trip to the caverns. My husband opened it with my library card, just to prove that he could. Pool was drained, even though...

The staff was not what you would call friendly. I waited to be checked in while the clerk had a personal conversation on her cell phone. The rooms were newly remodeled, clean, and smelled clean, not funky like many older motels do. Beds were comfortable. Did like there was a small desk in the dressing area where I could work...

DO NOT STAY AT THIS MOTEL! We were passing through Carlsbad on a road trip and being behind schedule decided to stay in the cheapest motel we could find. Needless to say we got what we paid for after realizing cheap is a very relative term in Carlsbad. First, if the hotel and motel prices everywhere in Carlsbad seem ridiculous...

We stayed here for a quick trip to the caverns. Great location because it's on the south end of town towards the caverns. It was clean, quiet, and full the night we were there. We didn't get a chance to use it, but there was a clean pool and playground available as well.

Anywhere else this inn would cost half of what they demand in Carlsbad. But this _is_ Carlsbad, and that makes this price relatively correct. The standard is simple, the beds are good, and free coffee in the reception helps. The pool is nice and necessary after a day under ground in the caverns. Barbecue buffs can use the grills outside,...

I believe I was gonna die the night I stayed here. First off the floors had not been vacuumed. There was animal hair everywhere. Second the animal slept in the bed, when I turned down the sheets there was animal hair all over the bed. So i called and asked for new sheets. The lady brought them and told me...
