Visiting Carlsbad Cavern from TX. Was looking for a value hotel. Comfortable bed, clean rooms, friendly front desk staff. Thanks Alva and Zoyie. We got 2 queen beds. We were two adults and 2 small kids. Rooms are quiet. Hotel was full but barely any noise through the walls. Most guests were visitors. No locals is the first good sign.... More

Booked our room at Super 8 due to what we felt was overpriced rooms at usual hotels we frequent. The staff was courteous, the hotel is old although being updated. The main concern was the deadbolt on our door did not work. I mentioned this when checking out and was told there were several rooms with that problem and the... More

This is an older property, in need of updating. Door handles were very dirty but the room was otherwise clean. The pool had already been drained and there was no hot-tub. The breakfast was really bad. The waffle batter (blueberry) was WATERY so the waffle came out raw and not edible. Not much else except some dry cereal and small... More

Whether you are just visiting Carlsbad or are going to one of the National Parks just down the road, this hotel fits the bill for a good price. Located close to shopping and restaurants makes it a very convenient place to have a good nights sleep. Enjoy!

The bathroom needs a lot of updating. We felt like we were going to fall through the tub. The tub definitely needs to be replaced. The tissue holder was rusted. There was an old bar of soap that had been used from someone staying there prior to us. The bathroom was not swept at all. One of the chairs was... More

We stopped here for the night ahead of touring Carlsbad Caverns, only another 20 miles up the road, so very quick, easy access. The room was clean and the beds fairly comfortable. The desk staff were welcoming and pointed out that the elevators at the caverns were down for annual maintenance so we would have to walk in...and out! Was... More
