Although the room looked nice and newly remodeled, the place is dirty and filthy. I took a shower and stepped on the floor out of the shower. I then put my foot on the tub to dry my leg. As I was drying my leg, black dirt dripped down the side of the tube from my foot. The dirt was...

Only spent 2 nights here but it was a little creepy. Lots of shady looking people in the hallways. Should have spent the extra money for a nicer hotel. Older hotel that has been remodeled. Very small room. Wouldn't want to stay there again.

Older hotel being renovated some. The room we got was a little musty smelling but it was at least clean. We got in late and left early so we can't say much more other than it was ok. Front desk was friendly and efficient. Ok for an overnight stop but if we were staying more than one night I would...

We stayed here due to its proximity to Carlsbad Caverns.I guess the room was updated, but it was hard for me to determine. The bathroom floor was filthy. I discovered this when I wiped some water that was spilled. The double queen room was kind of small. One good thing was we were able to get a first room floor...

The Front Desk women clerk, Dorothy(with the beautiful opal jewelry)was very friendly, helpful, and welcoming. Room was very clean, smelled good and newly remodeled. Motel was full but quiet and had a good night sleep. A little more pricey than other Motel 6, maybe with the area by Nat. Park Caverns and all the workers staying there too. wifi worked...

Stayed here while visiting Carlsbad Caverns. This motel is old and worn. The room we had was small but with a king-sized bed. The shower unit was pretty worn with brown marks on the edge that looked like cigarette burns. The vanity is outside of the bathroom and it was the only thing that looked newer. The faucet was reversed...

Well I know you get what you pay for, but for whatever reason lodging even in February is pricey and this was the most affordable option I found for about $70 a night. The person at the front desk was friendly, which was good being that I later had to ask to borrow an iron as irons and hair dryers...

Stayed at the Carlsbad Motel 6 for one night with my family in November 2013. We did not expect much, and we got even less. Loved the cockroach! The motel is located just off the main highway, and is about a 30 minute drive to the Carlsbad Caverns. A short drive from the motel you’ll find restaurants, and shopping. There...
