Just minutes from Carlsbad Caverns. Clean room, extra towels.

The motel is your typical 40 year old building but the rooms were clean. That said, the location is perfect for those going to the cavern, only ten minutes away. The price was good as were the low pet fees. Overall it was a very good value.

White's City is very quiet and it looks like a lot of the stores were permanently closed. Very quiet and cozy, though. If you want easy access to Carlsbad Caverns NP, this is the best place for it.

It’s just an old place with very old sheets, pillows and bedspreads. To the point they looked dirty. (I don’t think they were, just looked bad. The bed was mediocre at best. The girl at check in was matter of fact and not terribly friendly. It just didn’t live up to the Orbitz rating.

The only positive thing about this hotel is that it was the closest to the Carlsbad Caverns which would have been great except there is NO WHERE to get any food in White's City so you have to travel the 18 miles into Carlsbad any way. The is no alcohol sales in White's city either. The pool was full of a black slimy substance (mold or algae I believe) that made it too slippery for the kids and possibly a health hazard. Very poor maintenance overall but especially in the pool area. Our room was musty smelling and the floors were sticky. We booked two nights but only stayed one and left. Carlsbad Caverns were AMAZING - I wish there were more businesses in White's City for lodging, restaurants, and activities.

Great location and good value. Really liked the pool!

Sparkling clean and spacious!

We love the vaulted ceilings in our second floor room. Our room is so spacious, in perfect condition, and sparkling clean.

Not much for a breakfast

We were put in a room that had noisy plumbing all day and night. I asked to move to a new room at 3:00 AM first night of stay as we couldn't sleep with the constant thumping of noise. Person on duty told me and I quote "I think we shouldn't rent that room but management wants it used so the guests run water to take care of the noise issue". In other words, I was deliberately put into a room they new was bad from the start!!!!!! when we went to move to another room, the door wouldn't unlock, back to the desk, and the gal says "there's a trick to it". she tried and her trick didn't work she couldn't get it open either!! 3rd room was finally provided. most AMs the front desk didn't even acknowledge your existence when you went in to pick up your bowl of cereal, and share the communal gallon of milk. Woman at the desk our last day was very friendly but the first two days nobody even bothered to say good morning. Overall management of the property is the issue! They knew and put is in the room from hell anyway!!! We never spent another dime at the location, not the restaurant, gift shop, none of it out of frustration with what they put us through.

Easy access to Carlsbad Caverns. Staff was very friendly, room was clean and the beds were comfortable.

The rooms were unique..each a different theme. Also very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was grab and go..no place to sit in the lobby.

While it is an old property, it’s a great location and the staff is friendly. My son and I stayed here while we did our hiking at Guadalupe.

Excellent location. Very reasonable for the comfortable stay. Spacious room. Breakfast options could have been more

Very kind employees! Very quiet place. Very clean. Simple, but comfy!

room clean, bathroom looks been upgraded.
