Location. Room was just OK. This is an old motel. I thought it was low income housing at first. The room was OK but should be priced around $50 rather than the $150+ that we had to pay . Wouldn't stay here again.
Spacious room, parking right by the room entry, free WiFi, free breakfast. Noisy mornings due to many large diesel trucks starting around 5:30. Most of the room was pretty beat up, dented microwave, stained bedding and carpet. Ice machines and soda machines were all out of order. Thin walls allow you to hear neighbors televisions. Staff was loudly using profanity, including the management in the large office by the front desk.
Room was good sized, beds were comfortable. With tax, a room in this very basic BW chain motel approaches $200. These rates are due to the influx of oil/gas workers, who also leave early and noisily. Rehab construction on nearby unit added to the din. Room in need of paint, carpet, plumbing fixes and almost non existent internet added negatives. Most ice machines were not working.
Everything was as pictured! The rooms really have been updated quite nicely and were very clean. There is a nice pool as well. The staff was friendly and there is a pretty decent restaurant on site. If you're looking to go to the most hopping place in Carlsbad on a Friday or Saturday night, it is the Blue Cactus Lounge attached to the hotel. We decided to stop in for a drink, and the place got completely nuts, security guards and all. And a lot of drunk people. It could be fun if you're looking to party, but if not, I'd recommend not going there on the weekend nights.
Very clean, nice bedding
2 adults 3 teens in 2 queen with hideaway couch room.= Proximity to Carlsbad Caverns good. Not a bad drive from Artisia if you have business there. Plentiful and good Breakfast. Hot tub was nice and clean. rooms were large and clean with extra room for stuff. Hideaway couch bed was very nice and comfortable. many restaurants in area. Had the feel and smell of a new home. always a short wait at the elevators. good selection of TV channels. My room overlooked the parking area and I was able to keep an eye on my vehicle. Price was a little high, but it was spring break and a lot of vacationers in area. We tried to get this hotel cheaper on a few other Apps but the hotel held firm on its cost. most likely due to the season and had no need to offer lower bargain hunter prices. parking was a little tight. OK for cars and pickups but if you have an RV or trailer keep looking.
Very clean and quite. Was a great place to relax and rest. Breakfast hours could be longer. We were trying to get some rest and sleep, not to get up for breakfast.
