Hello, I will going to stay in Carlsbad for 2 nights to go to Guadalupe Mountains National Park in early june with my grandparents.I am from Texas. What are some good hotels to stay in? I stayed in the Best Western Stevens Inn in 2007, and I enjoyed it. However, that hotel may have gone down hill since then. Are there any good places to eat besides Furr's, McDonald's, and Chilli's.I am 21 so I would prefer some place that served alcohol.Thanks in advance.

I envy Ya!!

Was through there a year ago last March, to me a great time to visit. Been there several times. And at that time the temps were in the mid 70's.

A few mom and pop places you might try is Red Chimney BBQ on north Canal, the No Whiner Diner on South Canal, and Lucy's on South Canal (good Mexican food!) Canal street is U.S.285, the main drag.

If you've never been, you'll love Carlsbad Caverns, it's one of the top 5 National Parks-period! Just an amazing place.

I'll get back to ya on motels, I've heard the energy companies have been busy in the area.

Danny's BBQ does not serve alcohol, but it has not deterred me from dining there previously. One of two or three best bbq joints I've ever been to. Each time I buy their sauce to go.

Welcome to Danny's Barbecue

A good friend of mine a bit ago advised me that yes, there is quite a bit oilfield work not far from town and the motels are doing a brisk (as in money) business. There is quite a bit of road construction out there too. I checked prices on Motel 6, Super 8, Best Value Inn and Days Inn and they've increased prices probably 20%. But those motels I prefer when I do stay overnight as they are a ways south of town on 62/180 aka National Parks Highway. I've never stayed at BW Stevens Inn, IIRC they are on the main drag.

Mike0421 has a good suggestion here in Danny's. It's across the street from the old Furr's Cafeteria (Furr's closed some time ago). A couple other suggestions would be Pecos River Cafe (breakfast and lunch only). There is an International House of Pancakes by Walmart. A couple other places of note that have good mexican food are Mi Casita and Larez's restaurant. One place that is fairly upscale that my friend suggested is the Stock Exchange. As you know, a fair amount of mom and pop restaurants close on Sunday. This one is only open Thursday through Sunday, kind of an interesting twist here! I wasn't aware of the place but it has great food though.

Hopefully a few other NM posters will chime in here with suggestions.
