There's a bit of deferred maintenance, and although the bathroom was clean, the windows were filthy & the air filter needed to be changed. And the blazing lights shining directly into the room was awful.

Buy cheap - get cheap

Pros: Cheap
Cons: Repairs, cleanliness, updates
Location: Carlsbad is the only city within 100 miles of Carlsbad Caverns national park. Lots to do in the area -
Seriously, if you can afford it, do yourself a favor, and book a different hotel. This property is in desperate need of cleaning, updating and repairs. "Repairs" that were done are shoddy and incomplete. Only positive point was that there was no evidence of bugs or rodents found, Lingering odor of stale cigarette smoke and numerous burn marks.
