Stayed here one night while visiting Carlsbad Caverns. Picked it because of cost. The hotel seems a bit worn and in need of new carpet and updated bathrooms. Rooms and bathrooms were definitely on the small side. But our room was clean. Complimentary WiFi worked. Mini fridge and microwave was nice. Beds ok size, but not super comfortable. No elevator....

Prior to our vacation, I warned my family that we wouldn't be staying in a luxury hotel in Carlsbad. First of all, there are no luxury hotels and all of the hotels are overpriced due to the demand. A large area of southeastern NM and west TX is dominated by oilfield employees who need lodging. Like many travelers, we were... More

I stayed at Super 8 July 23, 2014. This is a typical motel out in Carlsbad. The price was right but most of the "price is right" motels are older. This one was an improvement over my last stay at the EconoLodge (yuck). People at the Super 8 were friendly. Bed was a tad uncomfortable but this is a quiet... More

We booked a room here because we didn't want to spend $200-300 for a room elsewhere and the reviews appeared acceptable. Major mistake on my part. Although the hotel staff was neither friendly, nor unfriendly, the hotel was dirty and in need of major repair. Outside the room, tiles were broken and the hallway smelled like urine and stale smoke.... More

We stayed here for one night while we were in Carlsbad to check out the caverns. It was expensive for a motel, but I understand that hotel rooms in the area are in high demand, and that seemed to be the average price in the area. It was only 15 minutes away from the caverns, had free breakfast, and a... More

After driving for 5 hours after work, the late check-in was simple. Sign this credit card receipt and here are your key cards to your room. The bathroom looked alright, until I looked at the hairdryer. At eye level, it was disgusting and caked with months of dust. The bathtub wasn't much better; I had to scrub the shampoo shelves....

This is about the second cheapest hotel in a city with way overpriced hotels. Room was freshly cleaned though these was some trash hidden behind the bed and the smell of cigarettes occasionally floated through the hallway.

The room was quite good. The price was very high considering, but as one reviewer put it - supply and demand. The two staff I encountered were lacklustre at best.
