Did someone say turn up the heat? Finally made it to our hotel in Carlsbad NM. We were soaked but it hadn't rained a bit - yuck! We and our ride need a bath!
... color whatsoever. From Carlsbad we drove across the Texas border to Junction for the night. It rained for a good part of the afternoon. Up at the crack of dawn on Saturday morning to head to The Woodlands TX. Looking forward to seeing my cousin Jo-Ann on Sunday.
... bats exit the cave for the evening. Right before six, suddenly out of nowhere a black cloud of bats, thousands and thousands all started flying out of the cave. These bats make a couple of loops at the base of the cave before heading off for the night to eat Mosquitos. It looked like a dark smoke cloud. We only stayed for 20 to 25 minutes because it was pouring rain and we were soaked, but it was so cool. I think ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Stevens Inn Carlsbad
Best place in Carlsbad - Stay here!!
We evacuated from Texas due to Hurricane Rita and went to the Best Western Stevens Inn in Carlsbad NM. The people there were fantastic. They gave us a greatly discounted rate and thier staff treated us extremely well. I highly recommend this hotel.
My family and I just returned from a trip out to Carlsbad. The Best Western/Stevens Inn was a pretty good value for the money. The pool was very nice and the buffet breakfast was very good. Our only complaint was that we had asked for adjoining rooms, 1 with a kitchen. When we arrived, they informed us that they were full and had several "stay-overs" from the night before and therefore we could not get the rooms we had "reserved." Before when I have "stayed over" at a hotel, they made me switch rooms to accomodate existing reservations. (and all the ice machines outside were empty) Overall, a pretty good hotel.
My family stayed at the Best Western Stevens Inn on 07/29/05 while on vacation. We were generally satisfied with one major exception: It was an extremely hot day. Our room was in the older section--it was roomy with high ceilings. Unfortuneately, the Air Conditioner had not been left running during the day and the room was very warm when we first entered. The air conditioner is not adequate to handle the size of the room. Ten hours after we turned the AC on the room was still uncomfortably warm even though it was running hard and putting out cold air. I had read about this problem in other reviews of this hotel and unfortuneately they were true!
My wife and I ended up here when the hotel where we had a reservation had a hot water heater failure. Because other guests also had to change hotels, our last-minute choice of rooms here was limited, with only smoking king rooms, or non-smoking queen rooms remaining, all of them in the older sections. Jonathan at the front desk was extremely accomodating, letting us see three different rooms to choose from. The room we chose was very large and adequately clean. Although it was toward the front of the property, we heard no road noise. A nice amenity was a computer in the lobby for guest use.
Reliable and a good deal
Room was large and clean. Good location not far from Carlsbad caverns. Good breakfast buffet and the dining area was pretty fancy. Staff was responsive and nice. Pool looked good, but did not get a chance to use it. Good deal for the price. A reliable hote.
My family and i had planned a trip to Carlsbad since Feb. so off we went! Whenever my family and i travel we always need a larger than normal room becuase we are at least 5 of us and sometimes 6, so we were very excited to find such a reasonable deal for a "mini-suite". that is what a very polite Monica called it when she made our reservation.
We stayed here for one night since we were just traveling through the area.
Exceeded my expectations
I usually stay at the Comfort Inn in Carlsbad, but since it was booked I opted for the BW Stevens Inn. My expectations were low given the advanced age of this property. I'm happy to say that while its age shows, this hotel is still well maintained and made for a good stay. The beds were very comfortable, the A/C worked well (100 degrees outside), the shower was good and there were plenty of TV channels. The complimentary breakfast was above average, and the staff was friendly. I still prefer the newer Comfort Inn, but would not hesitate to recommend the BW Stevens Inn.
OK, for a night or two
Recently stayed in the single story rooms at this motel. While the rooms were very large and clean, the furnishings and rooms themselves had seen alot of wear. On the plus side, the rooms were so large that a crib or roll-away bed could easily fit in them and still leave plenty of room to move around. Don't know what the rooms were like in the 2-story sections but those buildings looked newer than the one we stayed in.
We stayed at the Best Western in Carlsbad the summer of 2003. The rooms were reasonably priced and my daughter loved the pool with the small playground nearby. We stayed the next night at the Best Western in Whites City (where the caves are located). That was great! My daughter and I really enjoyed their water park, which consisted of 2 different slides and a "pirate ship", in addition to a regular pool.
