Get what you pay for
Posted Aug 18, 2016
The hotel is older and has undergone some ongoing updates. The price reflects the over inflated charges hotels demand to stay in Carlsbad. The basics: the room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the location was close to the caverns, and the A/C worked well. For what was paid in comparison to other hotels I have stayed in across the country, they offered few amenities, no breakfast or coffee in your room. This might help explain why it appeared 80 percent empty. However, I would prefer to stay there again and use the saving to have a very nice breakfast at the nearby restaurants.
