Shocking, the room was filthy. I could not recommend this place. Still shocked, the worst place ive ever stayed in. A layer of dirt and grime round skirting boards appliances and the air con , light fittings can never have been cleaned. There was a visible layer of dirt everywhere.

Hotel room was clean and quiet, and very close to Carlsbad Caverns. However, we arrived around 9pm in the evening and there was no food for sale anywhere near it. No gas station, no fast food, no restaurant, not even a working vending machine. We ended up driving into Carlsbad to get food, which defeated the purpose of staying near...

When I arrived I had drunk too much coffee and really needed a bathroom break. When I asked if there was a bathroom available I was told the bathroom was not clean but I could use the bathroom across the street in the gas station! The check-in was long and painful - she had to go through the procedure twice....

1st impression is this is an old motel. The continental breakfast was not ever an idea when this place was built. The front check in lobby doubles as a breakfast counter but the picnic table is outside. I was offered a tray and was able to take my breakfast items back to my room. It was the preferred option. No...

Who are the people that are saying this hotel is clean?!?! Our room was filthy! It was the dirtiest room I have ever slept in! The floor was filthy - we had to ask to have the carpet re-vacuumed, since there was dirt, rocks and bugs everywhere. They did vacuum it, but it was only a little bit better. I...

Stayed here while visiting the caverns. The room was clean, and the staff was friendly. For a one nights stay I would stay again, but not for more than that. There is a "water park" next to the hotel's pool that guests can use also.

We stayed at the Rodeway Inn in Whites City because of it's proximity to Carlsbad Caverns. We were up there in mere minutes. There is also a distinct lack of choice on places to stay. The room we got when we checked in was rather dingy and had an odor. The sheets were clean and the bathroom relatively clean. We...

Not alot of choices for this area but nice room for a great price. We checked in late and got taken care of quickly. The rooms were pretty clean and the bed was comfortable. This location was very convenient to Carlsbad Caverns which was great. Literally right down the mountain from it. There was some cute looking play area for...

We stayed here one night while visiting the caverns. Room was on first floor, two queens, clean, fridge, and microwave. Rather large room, bathroom was also clean good water pressure and hot. Pool was little dated and in need of paint and updating but my 8 yr old loved it and so did I with 101° heat. The breakfast is...

We only stayed here because of location near the Caverns. It would have been out of our way to stay in the city of Carlsbad but after spending one night in the Rodeway, I now know it would have been better to stay in Carlsbad where there are nice hotels. The Rodeway could be a decent motel if they just...
