The 500+ mile day

A travel blog entry by hamlin-hart


Woke up this morning earlier than usual so we could hit the road knowing we had a long day ahead of us. It was 48 this morning - full winter riding gear on. By first gas stop we were already pealing some of it off. Out of Winslow, the idea was to go thru the Petrified Forest National Park. Well, the leader of the bunch, that would be me, didn't pay …

More miles and miles of Texas!

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!

Bats and One Whopping Big Cave

A travel blog entry by mrear99


... of what we saw. The picture of Matt on the bench having a challenging hair day is an original. Since that photo we decided that Matt gets his hair combed in the morning despite any protests.

After returning to the hotel room and then getting a leisurely start the next morning, we returned for the tour of the caverns. Without a wheel chair, you can walk 750' down and then back up. We took the ...

Hunting horcruxes

A travel blog entry by natalie.j95

Dear family members who remember how terrified I was if Wookey Hole as a child: prepare to be shocked. I went 750ft underground in Carlsbad Caverns... and enjoyed it!! The cavern was so spacious and well-lit that I hardly thought about the fact that I was in an underground cave and really enjoyed the beauty of it. I loved the names of some of the features - from the very technical term "popcorn" used to describe a particular formation of rock to the creatively named ...

Going Under Ground

A travel blog entry by chrisleslie


... always a cool 56F (13C), which today is 10 degrees warmer than outside so it was nice to get into the warmth. The 1.5 miles took just under an hour. The cave formations including stalagmites and stalactites are breathtaking. Normally these caves are home to around 3 million bats, but sadly they will not be back until March so we pretty much had the cave to ourselves.

Once at the bottom we jumped on a ranger lead tour of the "Kings Palace" room. After that we ...

    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.

    Moderate 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.

    OK but with cautions


    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!

    OK, but not great


    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.

    'mom is this a 'flea-bag'?


    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.

    The worst


    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.

    Best Western


    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.
