I tried to convince my friend to stay in Carlsbad (20-30 minutes away from the Caverns) after reading the reviews here, but he insisted that it wouldn't be that bad, and would be worth it for the location, location, location. I'm glad I cave. This hotel was a perfectly fine place to stay while visiting Carlsbad Caverns! It was even worth the "I told you so" glance I received as I proclaimed that it wasnt bad at all.
You guys have always treated me great!
