This was a DECENT stay. Not exceptional. To be more specific.... I stayed 4 nights. not a single employee here stands out as above and beyond. No one was overly pleasant, if pleasant at all. The bare minimum from any employee is what we received. If you are a Diamond Best Western member, don't expect an upgrade or a bottle... More

I am sorry your stay was not more enjoyable. I was disappointed to hear you say that not any of our employees stood out. I expect much more from my staff. I appreciate your review and will address your concerns. Thanks Bobby Forrest G/M More

It's quiet and comfortable. The king room we stayed in had a unique, pleasing design. The restaraunt was wonderful, and they have a hot breakfast. They are also pet friendly. We will definitely stay there next time we're in Carlsbad.

This hotel had no hot water and would not address the issue, said they couldn't make it hot for safety reasons. Front desk staff was horrible. I stay at many hotels during the year on business and most of them are Best Western, but I will not stay here again.

I have adjusted the temperature on the boilers to a hotter level. You have to be careful and not get the water to hot. I have also spoken with the front desk on the importance of treating all of our guests cordially. Thanks Bobby Forrest G/M More

Very clean, spacious and comfortable rooms. The staff was great. A newly employed young lady ( unfortunately I am unable to remember her name) checks us in, she was uncertain if she properly applied our Best Western Rewards. After check in, she researched and found everything applied correctly and made a point to inform us. Not everyone would have done... More

This is an older "motel" type Best Western. The good is that it was clean and the room was huge. There were a lot of oil field workers staying there. That doesn't bother me, but some folks may get turned off by a lot full of muddy pick up trucks snd dusty oil workers staying there. As others have mentioned,... More

The oilfield workers are some of our very valued customers. The muddy trucks along with their vigorous work schedule makes them stand out from your typical hotel guests. All of our customers are very well appreciated. The ice machines are all working now . Thanks for your review. Bobby Forrest G/M More

Very large hotel, has multiple units. We were in an older room. Very large and clean. Beds were very comfortable. On the main road so easy in and out. Breakfast was not very well organized when we went. Hot food was tepid, no ladle for oatmeal, coffee urns were consistently empty. Noted quite a few staff sitting around a table... More

We stayed at this hotel one night on our way to Carlsbad Caverns. The room was very large and comfortable. We were able to get a room that was a one story which proved to be very quiet. The bed was comfortable and we both slept well. The breakfast was a pleasant surprise- a hot breakfast buffet with pancakes, eggs,... More

Best Western Stevens Inn is a bit quaint, but well run and clean. Rooms are up to date and a good multi choice hot breakfast buffet is included. It is about 15 miles to Carlsbad Caverns NP. Walmart is just down the street.

The staff was friendly and offered helpful information. The room was large, clean, and bright. The beds were extremely comfortable and luxurious feeling. The area was quiet and pleasant.
