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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I had a nice stay, nothing stands out.
Manager let me cancel second night Location, room, tacky check in, the worst value, swimming pool empty. Don't stay in carlsbad. I heard they are gouging because of high demand due to drilLing or minerals etc. I am two weeks into a road trip and the other motels in other cities were infinetly better for less than half the price. terriblet experience after a 9 hour drive.
There was nothing great about the hotel. Everything was normal. Nothing stuff out. There was a funky smell in the hotel. They over charged me $310 and said they would give me a discount the next time I stayed.
I have never stayed in the Super 8 that has been this disgusting, the ceiling in the bathroom was falling in there was black mold all over the shower and bathroom, there was a s*** in the toilet, there was food wrappers in all the drawers, there were stains all over the bed spread sheets blankets pillows, the pictures are nothing like what it is. The staff was amazing though they got everything I needed and everything I wanted when I wanted it.

They could not add my hotel stay to LQ Returns and it is difficult to access new membership
The hotel is the newest one in town, so everything was clean and new. Carlsbad is a small town so the location is close to everything. The couple of days I stayed I was up at 8 in the morning and the breakfast items were not replenished so the selection was as good.
They have a very friendly staff. The beds where to stiff, not enough bedding, the a/c- heater didn't work to my satisfaction. The shower head was way to low and I had to crouch down for the water to hit my head!
It had a fridge and microwave and was within 30 minutes of Carlsbad caverns. I think the sheets were cleaned, but that's about it. It seems like everything else in town is double the price, but you would think that for paying over a $100 / night, things would be cleaner. The breakfast is a joke. Coffee, Cheap OJ and Cereal. There are empty beer bottles all around the property. It seems like there is only 1 person there and he is level of effort is minimal, and it shows.
The bed was not very comfortable
location the staff and the breakfast
the price and it is close to the caverns. New big screen tv and cable. Walmart close by and several places to eat. There was mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. The maid came knocking at the door at 6 am. The man that runs the front desk is rude over the phone but polite in person. Adult only because there were many guests smoking and drinking on the balcony at night. Pillows were flat and we had to go buy a new one from a near by walmart.
Our door was all smashed in as if someone kicked it in. The main switch for lights didn't work. Bathroom door wouldn't close.
The room was spacious and clean. The staff were very responsive to any issue that came up. The internet wasn't always reliable.
Nothing remarkable. Meh. The price was ridiculous (more than $300 with fees) and they put us on the first floor by a noisy family. We went here because everything else was sold out.
There was no place to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air. The pool and spa areas were closed for cleaning during the morning/midday, so we did not get a chance to get any water exercise. Seems like maybe they should clean those areas after hours?
The entrance was really pretty. Yes the hotel room was VERY dirty. Carpet stained, bedsheets dirty and stained.

The hotel went out of its way to try to meet my needs even though the room that Priceline sold me was unavailable. Nothing

Great location Staff seemed mostly disinterested
We had a late check in. The man at the desk was friendly and helpful even though it was 1:00 AM. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast was really bad. There were lots of choices, but nothing was good.
nice hotel to much money for the room and area over looked a parking lot with stores. children in the pool area without adult present running and scream jumping in and out of pool unable to use pool. Don't mind paying money for a good area.
Great breakfast, internet was fast, comfortable bed. The first night our air conditioner was broken and kept us up all night. The staff moved us and the rest of the stay was excellent.
room was clean and pool was nice I was treated poorly because I had used priceline.
The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The location is pretty sketchy and was informed upon check in that there was no security in the parking lot and that cars are frequently broken into.
Location Breakfast Breakfast Area congested. By making reservation on internet, couldn't get AARP or Military discount. This my biggest complaint.
I've stayed in the Carlsbad Days Inn many times when I travel there to visit aging family. I've always had a pleasant stay and the staff has always been very polite and eager to please. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and we enjoy the breakfast. I know that the prices in Carlsbad are pretty expensive because of all the growth and the oil boom. I'm sure that all the hotels stay within a certain price range, but it gets harder to find a hotel I can afford every time I travel to Carlsbad since I'm on a fixed income. Kayak has always given me affordable prices with no hidden charges.
