After prior great experiences, we upgraded to a suite. Our clock was not lit at night and was useless. Both TVs wouldn't work unless the remote was pointed at the box in back. Soap from the previous guest was still in the shower. When I took my shower, the drain plugged fast, slightly flooding the floor. I wiped the water...

This HI Express was one of the nicest we've stayed in during all of our travels. It was bright, clean, well located. Staff was friendly and our room was spacious. We didn't have a chance to use the pool or gym but maybe next time? Great breakfasts too!

When one travels to see the Caverns, an overnight stay in this somewhat remote town is almost required due to time and distance, so we thought we'd play it safe with a known hotel brand. When we arrived, the pool and spa were closed and there was no price reduction or compensation. There is NOTHING to do in Carlsbad, so...

I want every hotel stay to be like this one. We (me, 5yo, 3yo, 1yo) joined my husband there for 3 nights. He had already been there a week. Great room, nice pool, coin laundry, wonderful continental breakfast, 4pm - 6pm snacks, and great staff. My son wet the bed and the staff was every helpful with the situation. Only...

Arrived in the early evening and the staff at the desk was more than inviting. The desk person saw I was traveling with family and since the pool was closed, had upgraded my room to the suite before we even arrived to make up for it. The extra space that provided was well appreciated after a long drive and car-cramped...

This is a clean quiet hotel with easy access and next to the mall. Plenty of places to eat nearby, gas stations and banks. Felt safe and secure with ease of access. Staff was informed and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The air conditioning worked well as it was very hot!!

Rooms were small, but had everything that we needed for the two nights we were there. A better fridge would have been nice. Amenities: the breakfast was great (typical with waffles, bacon, eggs) and allowed us to get a quick start on our day. The outdoor pool was fabulous - still warm in the evening which allowed us to cool...
