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... More

The room very pretty dirty.... the AC did not cool until we pulled out the filters. The filters were so dirty and covered in dust it was crazy. Once they were clean we were able to cool down the room. Carpets were not vacuumed. The sink still have soap scum. The floors in the bathroom has still dirt in the... More

If you are traveling and need to count at all on wi-fi (I don't have a smart phone and therefore couldn't use my phone to connect), RUN FAR AWAY! We were able to functionally access wi-fi for a total of one hour in our entire 2-day stay! This place is the closest you'll find to the Caverns. Just 8 miles... More

Very friendly staff, convenient to area attractions (caverns, falls, etc), and clean. Pretty simple accommodations and really no dining- one small restaurant down the road, but I'd stay here again. Spacious rooms and water slides for kids is a definite perk!

The hotel was well located for our group trip to Guadalupe Mountains National Park and Carlsbad Caverns. The rooms were a bit dated, but clean and quiet. The price was good. There is a funky mini water park that is free for hotel guests. Breakfasts were cold cereal, pre-packaged muffins, bananas, and coffee or orange juice. You eat in your... More

The location is good as it's just at the entrance of Carlsbad. The room is big and the bed is comfortable. It provides simple breakfast only....cupcakes, bananas, cereals, orange juice and coffee. But the internet doesn't work at all. We could never get it connected. And there's no restroom at the lobby. After we checked out, we would like to... More

This hotel's main attraction is that it is only a short jaunt away from the Carlsbad Caves National Park which is great when you want to visit the caves during the day and then return in the evening to watch the bat flight. The hotel also has a nice little pool area that would be great to keep children entertained.... More

We made a reservation here despite mixed reviews and a high rate for what we would expect from this chain because the rates at the hotels in Carslbad were even higher. We were pleasantly surprised. It was clean and that was the most important to us for an overnight stay to tee us up for a visit to Carlsbad Caverns... More

This hotel is AT THE ENTRANCE to Carlsbad Caverns! You don't get any closer! You drive seven miles up the entrance road and there you are! So this place gets points for location, location, location. Carlsbad the city is 22 miles away. So this gets you IN THE CAVERN when they open at 830. BEAT THE RUSH -- you don't... More
