For one night's stay, this was a good stop. So very close to Carlsbad Caverns, quiet, clean, and an easy drive to Carlsbad for dinner. Restaurant close by was closed on day we stayed. Reasonable rate.

My husband and I stayed two nights at this hotel. We stopped here halfway between Phoenix and Dallas. We stayed two nights.The clerk who checked us in was friendly. The room was very large and clean. The only restaurant in town is closed Monday and Tuesday. A small convenience store closes early in the evening. I had called the hotel...

Guess why you stay here? YES It is the closest Motel to Carlsbad! Kids love the pool you love the AC. If you want fewer crowds at Carlsbad you need to get there early, Our family had a good 2 hours in the morning before the crowds came!!!!!!!!

This hotel is the only one in Whites City open in November. The rooms are very dated and badly need renovation. The door to the room leaks air badly (can see bright light when closed and locked). The room smells of the 100's of guests/pets that previously stayed there. The continental "breakfast" must be brought back to your room and...

The room was comfortable, the breakfast wasn't bad. The only real problem was the night staff, I don't know if we caught him on a bad day, but his attitude left a lot to be desired, lady on the morning shift was nice and helpful. Would I stay here again? Probably, because the choices are limited without going out of...

Spacious newly renovated room – all new appliances, etc. Good for in-room dining. Superb location for getting to and from the spectacular Carlsbad caverns. Rather poor continental breakfast but nowhere to eat other than back in the hotel room. Indifferent front desk staff. Even noting these criticisms we would stay there again – remembering to bring our own food supplies.

Visited the Carlsbad caverns which are actually located approximately 25 miles south of the town of Carlsbad (Important to know). The little two horse town named White City is at the entrance to the caverns (then seven more miles from White City to the caverns). If you visit the caverns you will either have to drive back to Carlsbad for...

This is the second Rodeway Inn we stayed at on our recent trip. Once again it didn't disappoint. The room was fairly large and nicely decorated with white. It had a good Internet and a modern flat screen TV. Because it's about seven miles to the caverns it was convenient enough to go to the caverns and come back a...

For the price, the room was great and the waterpark was a lot of fun for us and our little daughter (2 years old)! Can't beat the location either, very close to the caverns!! Just a note for the older kids and the adults, they have two water slides there that are comparable to ones that you would find at...
