Motel style inn with room access from the outside, convenient location close to both Guadalupe Mountains NP and Carlsbad. Rooms could definitely use some updating and show some wear and tear, but it’s a welcome place after a long day of hiking. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming, they were great.

Very close to the caverns and there is a gas station, restaurant and gift shop right across the street. Rooms were dated, but overall spacious, quiet and very clean! Big parking lot that is well lit at night and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall, it was perfect for our family trip to the caves.

Property is old but clean. Closest lodging to Carlsbad Caverns. Room 246 didn't have hot water. When I told the guy and girl at the desk the next morning when checking out they just looked at me like "so". Of course now (Covid) in New Mexico it's hard to find something to eat. Not restaurants fault but plan for that if you go.

Excellent location just outside Carlsbad Caverns National Park. Clean and spacious rooms. Plenty of parking. Friendly staff. The people at the front desk really have their act together. Be warned though, the only restaurant in the area is closed on Sundays and Mondays, so come prepared.
