  • Hotel room prices vary depending on many factors but you’ll most likely find the best hotel deals in Carlsbad if you stay on a Saturday. The opposite is true for, Tuesday, which is usually the most expensive day.
  • Book at least 37 days before your stay begins to get the best price for your Carlsbad accommodation.
  • Carlsbad, New Mexico, is a city known for being the gateway to the Carlsbad Caverns National Park, but it is so much more than that. Downtown offers lots of activities, as well as shopping and dining options, which means it’s a good place to be based if you want to see more of Carlsbad. Try staying at TownePlace Suites by Marriott Carlsbad, which is along Canal Street and super close to the Bataan Recreation Area.
  • One of the biggest attractions in the area is the Carlsbad Caverns National Park, which sits in the Chihuahuan Desert, and boasts over 100 caves. Many travelers choose to stay as close as possible to the caverns, and there are many hotels in Carlsbad’s southern area, along Route 62, that are just a 20-minute drive from the park – including Quality Inn & Suites, La Quinta Inn & Suites Carlsbad, and Days Inn by Wyndham Carlsbad.
  • Lake Carlsbad Beach Park is a recreation area that offers opportunities to go fishing, boating, and partake in other water sports, and boasts big picnic areas that are perfect to visit on a summer afternoon.
