The staff were very helpful and friendly. We arrived early and the room was already prepared for us. They unexpectedly provided pizza for dinner, gave us water bottles and cookies upon arrival, and were very prompt and polite when we needed extra supplies brought to our room. The only area that could have used improvement was the pool. The water was salty, so perhaps there wasn't enough chlorine, and there was no shade provided, which would have been nice.

Great hotel for the price

Pros: Excellent accommodations. The included breakfast was much, much better than average "included" breakfasts. Great value. Great location.
Cons: Perfect as is.
Location: Located on main highway (a big plus). Close to restaurants and parks.

Great place to stay!

We stayed in Carlsbad to visit the caverns. Staff suggested several places to eat in area that were good. Driving distance to caverns is about 25 min. drive, but worth it for room and area dining. Everyone was very friendly and room was exceptionally clean.

Can't go wrong with Marriott

Pros: Total experience was great.
Location: The Caverns were about 15 minutes away. I felt like we were in the middle of Carlsbad, so it was a good starting point in all directions.
From the check-in to the stay, everything was wonderful. Free cookies and popcorn, the kids loved it. An excellent breakfast selection started the day off right. I'd definitely recommend!

Small for the Price

We chose this location because of its proximity to Carlsbad Caverns. On this account it did not disappoint, but the room was undersized for its price. We were on the road for 26 days and this was most expensive night with the smallest room. The hotel is fairly new and our room and the grounds were clean. The hot breakfast was better than average. The front desk staff was friendly, but not much help when it came to local knowledge about dining choices. If we are ever in this area again, we will search for a better value for our money.

Clean & convenient

Pros: Free breakfast
We stayed here for two nights while visiting the caverns. The hotel was new, clean and a convenient place to stay while visiting the caverns. There was a good variety for the continental breakfast. There is a pool; however, it was crowded pretty much all throughout the day and evening. It would have been nice had they built a larger pool for this hotel. Only other downside was that there was not a refridgerator in the room, which would have been nice.

Terrible excuse for a Marriot

Cons: Noisy, Poor breakfast, very dirty bathrooms.
This place is new, but very dirty already. It is immediately facing the main hiway south out of town, and traffic is constant and loud. The breakfast should be outright false advertising. The local management is beligerent and unhelpful, and appear to be on drugs (cleaning staff). This place only exist because of the Marriot name, but I predict it will not last, under the current management at least. Also, there is a vacant lot full of hobos that ogle any females who attempt to use the miniscule outdoor pool. The walmart crowd is also handily available to keep you awake all night, immediately next door. What a location ! I would not send my worst enemy to this place, but would suggest Marriot cull this place from their chain.
