Cabin Reviews

Oct 06, 2014
Poor communication, owner makes up charges, rude staff (guy named Keith), clean comfortable cabin. Would love to discuss if someone cares to hear about out experience.

The facilities were very clean, the hosts were friendly. The BBQ very bland and pricey. The biggest drawback is the smell of petroleum or natural gas in the air. Not the fault of the owners, but guests should be aware that there are drilling machines close by and the smell not only kept me up, it also gave me a terrible headache.

The KOA staff were not willing to accommodate our request but ask us to move to A higher priced cabin at our expense to accommodate another guest.

We had no idea what kind of place we were staying at. We read the reviews about this KOA and we were real excited but anxious about what we would get. We were blown away with the cabin, the staff and the overall experience! Thank you for having a great place to stay!

Friendly staff and great little cabin. Bed was like a rock or I would have given 5 stars.

We stayed in a small kamping kabin that was very clean and in perfect condition. The bed was very nice. Bath house was spotless and in very good repair. Great hospitality.

We wanted to take our two boys to visit the Caverns for the first time but could not find a reasonably priced hotel nearby, lucky for us we found your KOA. It was a fantastic all around weekend. I am a chef, so it was wonderful being able to cook out for my family as well. The cabin was awesome, just rustic enough for the boys and nice enough for our only girl. Thank you all! We will be back.

Very nice and quiet

We were disappointed in the fact that it was a 100 mile round trip to the Caverns and the A/C did not work in bedroom.The floors were swept but dirty, crumbs on toaster. People were very nice and outside grounds were nice. I felt we paid too much for what we received. If had to do over would stay in motel closer to Caverns

The tent village was unique and made tent camping easier. The only recommendations are spraying for black widows and the mouse droppings.

When we tried to book here we were told we could not book one of the cottages @95 per night as they had a three night minimum as per KOA and the Labor Day weekend. We had to book a lodge for 158 per night. We were there on the Weds and Thurs. before the weekend and two of the cottages were not occupied while we were there. Air did not work in the bedroom & other problems w/no offer to compensate

Friendly staff. Cabin was clean, beds comfortable. However, the A/C did not cool the room in the afternoon and evening - very HOT. Cool during night and morning so was able to sleep. All in all, not a bad stay since I was gone most of day

It was awesome. Everyone was so nice and helpful. We will be back!

We stayed in a delux cabin. The camp grounds and the cabin were very clean. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of the oil and gas smell is so strong it gave me a headache and burned my nose when the wind blew just so. I would also recommend having everything you need like milk, food and towels since they charge a high price for them in the office. Our kids really loved it here!

Awesome place. First time staying at a KOA and it won't be the last.

Well run, pleasant people at the front desk, our cabin was great. It would have helped if the website told more about what kitchen gear was provided in the cabin, and what we should bring.

BBQ dinners were great!

Everybody was extremely helpful and cared. Far enough away to seem secluded. We stayed in a cabin and had a great time with my boys.

It was nice. The area is nice a few more bugs than were used to. Most of the staff was nice. The front desk staff was really nice. Our screen was ripped on our cabin door and there was hole in the back side underneath that we saw an animal scurry under. Enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful stay. Clean and very friendly owners and staff. Fun activities for children.

Stopped over in our RV to visit the caverns. My son's family joined us and stayed in a cabin. We both enjoyed our stay, the friendly staff and the features of the park. We would certainly recommend the park to our friends.

Great staff, excellent food. Internet seems to be problematic. Sadly, the nearby gas fields also causing problems with smells.

Very clean, attractive, well-managed, well-supplied, well laid out, with a good variety of overnight sites/Kabins. Two small downsides: Lobo Kabin very close to it's neighbor Kabin. (Appreciate the good parking nearby!) Need a way to lock the Kabin & leave the key securely for early departure. Thank you and if we are ever back in that area, we will stay with you again!

The camp sight was clean and very accessible from the highway. The staff were friendly and very helpful. We stayed in one of the cabins, which was great for our family. It was clean and was exactly what we needed for our stay there. Our kids enjoyed it very much. I would recommend this KOA to anyone traveling in this area of New Mexico. Thank You.

We didn't get to stay long, just passing thru. It was a very nice cabin and getting in and out was a breeze.

Helpful staff, nice atmosphere and clean bathrooms! We enjoyed our night in the cabin. A little bit farther from Carlsbad Caverns than expected.

It was awesome. Staff was awesome and we plan on coming back. Thanks very much Steve & Sally Hill

It was comfortable and less expensive than a hotel in town. The cabin was a little dirty, otherwise everything was great. The staff was friendly and informative. There was plenty to do in the area. The BBQ made for an easy meal one night, they even delivered to our cabin.

Reason for not 100%, No water pressure for 5 day stay. Flush toilet and water stops coming out of sink faucet. could not use shower or tub water so slow would no turn on instant gas water heater. When I complained they said it was just the way it is in that cabin. No attempt to fix or anything. The outside faucet ran a sprinkler just fine something is wrong with the cabin itself.

We had a fantastic time at Carlsbad KOA! The people were delightful, the campground was clean and well organized, and the the bathrooms were immaculate. The pool was small but very clean. Don't forget to try the BBQ, it was wonderful!
