This is a lovely boutique hotel with plenty of old world charm. The furnishings make you feel like you are stepping back in time.
There is a bag of the state cookie of New Mexico provided in the room upon arrival, and they are quite tasty. The toiletries provided are very nice and the soft sheets and thick towels are amazing. Breakfast was excellent with hot breakfast sandwiches, fresh berries, and oatmeal among other choices. On our first night we enjoyed eating frozen yogurt from the shop across the street on the roof patio swing. The Inn also offers a Family/Conference Room on the ground floor that has space for large group dining and an area to relax with a large seating area and TV. Although we didn't work out, there is an arrangement with the local health club for guests to receive free access to the health club.
The Ocotillo Performing Arts Center is just across the street, and the Heritage Inn offers packages that include a show with your lodging. The Inn is on Main Street and within easy walking distance to numerous interesting shops.
Ryan and Neva have created an amazing Inn. If you are wanting to visit the Carlsbad area, stay here instead. The drive to the cave is a short one from Artesia, and the Heritage Inn is a much better option than paying for an overpriced chain hotel in Carlsbad and dealing with the crowded conditions the oil boom has created.
