Overall a good experience. The room was sparse, but that's to be expected at a Motel 6. The room... See full review

Gnawed off soap

- Front desk smelled strongly of cigarette smoke - Room (a non-smoking room) still smelled slightly of smoke - 6 holes in desk top (maybe from something installed?) - Cigarette butt-size hole in sheets - Stained sheets - Bathroom light didn't turn on on the first two tries - Dirty tub - Hot and cold water knobs on sink reversed - Dirty and chewed up backside of bathroom door - Front door stuck badly - Only dusting that shelves got was from tenants' stuff - Floor unclean and buckling in places - The ultimate: Hand soap bar had gnawed-off corners (as in something chewed through the wrapper to the soap). I'd rather they not provide soap than provide something that it looks like a rat has been munching on.

Poor service, uncomfortable stay

I checked in at around 9pm coming from Carlsbad Caverns and was rudely greeted by the woman at the front desk. She was not hospitable whatsoever. The room wasn't so bad, sheets were clean and so was the bathroom but the A/C smelled funny. Housekeeping came knocking at 8AM which was too early. I paid too much for low quality.

Clean room and toilet. Hot water.

Stayed 1 night only on my trip to Carlsbad Caverns. I had a good night sleep. The room and toilet is clean which is all I expect. When staying at here, be sure to bring your own toiletries as they only give a tiny bar of soap. There is a mini fridge and a microwave oven. I did not regret staying here specially for the price. I will stay here again.

Horrible

Well, we canceled our stay because of the condition of the building and the cleanliness, out of about 20 hotels it was one of the 5 worst. Would not let my dog stay there. You should inspect these places before offering them on your site.

Average motel experience

The lady at the front desk was friendly. I liked the decor in the room. I wish the water pressure was better and I didn't like the soap they gave us. It felt like I couldn't get the soap off my hands. Also, my husband said the bathtub was really slippery and almost slipped when he was taking a shower.

So So for the Caverns

Kinda dirty. No breakfast and you have to walk down to get your coffee. Super dusty area.

Convenient to Carlsbad Caverns

I stayed here because it was the cheapest option close to Carlsbad Caverns (which, honestly, was still not that cheap - lodging prices are high all around the area). It's a Motel 6, so I knew to expect no frills. But it was perfectly clean and serviceable, the room was modern, and the staff was friendly. The free WiFi worked fine and there was cable TV. I didn't expect pampering, just a clean and safe place to sleep, and I felt I got my money's worth.

Sometimes the staff make the visit work.

The motel was average, and the price was the best for the area. The staff, Dorothy, was what made the stay worthwhile. I needed some documents copied and Dorothy took care of it voluntarily. People are what we remember and this motel will be remembered for her excellent attitude.
