We arrived with no reservation on a Thursday night. The staff was very friendly and the room was very nice, clean, a big. Had a king bed, couch, chair, fridge. We were truely impressed with the cleanliness and freshness of the room. For only $60 plus tax we were very happy with this room. Most rooms around the area were...

I visited carlsbad with 4 adults and 3 children. We had 2 rooms. The continental breakfast meant a lot to us, or I should say would have . The breakfast was the waffle machine alone, no eggs no yogurt no toast no biscuits and gravy no fruit. Only one man there day and night. Hot tub is filthy and is...

We arrived late with two very tired children to a check-in gentlemen who spoke with a thick accent as if he had gauze in his mouth who was extremely abrupt, nearly shouting at me, as we tried to sort out how Priceline had not provided him a confirmation number. I had booked via Priceline and he kept arguing with me...

This little known motel has had a complete facelift. The owner has remodeled the rooms with new beds, bedding, carpet, security lighting, granite counter tops and way too many things to remember. For a privately owned property it was great.

I had driven most of the day concerning my business. I first thought we had booked a Best Western in Carlsbad but my mistake it was the Great Western. When I checked in they said they were working on the cable----would be only a few minutes well, it was around 9:00 pm when they finished. Not a good motel for...

DO NOT GO TO THIS HOTEL! I wasn't expecting the Ritz Carlton for the price, but I should have read the reviews and reviewed the photos before settling on this property. It wasn't, on the surface, too bad. I've stayed in worse; it was relatively clean, and they were great about our dogs. But, I awakened with bites all over...

If I could give this property 0 stars, I would. I spent 3 hours attempting to get to Carlsbad, but all roads were closed due to the snow. Even though their property was unreachable, they still charged me for one night plus tax. Having driven by it the next day, don't make a reservation here and don't stay here. The...

Large clean room with fridge, mico & large counter. Bed was comfy & shower was good as was WiFi. Large complex with outside doors on both 1st & 2nd floors. Indoor pool with plenty of parking. Advertised breakfast consisted of 2 kinds of cereal & packaged pastries. Got half a cup of coffee. Plenty of restaurants close by. Newer chain...

Checked in after a great day at Carlsbad Caverns. Acceptable room for the price. However, do not expect any help or assistance - from local police department. After catching a vehicle trying to "back in" next us (we were out of state plates) - we requested "extra patrol" and to file a report - gave up after waiting over an...

“Best tip to get a good room is try and stay somewhere else. But if that's not an option, ask for a room on the side or back edge of the motel where any noise of workers departing in the morning would be at a minimum.”
