Might as well add my question to this...
Last time I checked (it's been a year or two), the hotel prices in Carlsbad were insanely expensive. Through some research I realized that the surrounding area had become an oil boom place, hence the cost (oil companies have no problem paying it).
When I did my research, I saw that hotels in Roswell were only about $100 per night (Carlsbad was about $300). I will obviously re-check as my info may be outdated and no longer relevant/current, but I will be in Carlsbad area during my 6/12 - 6/19 trip....and was planning to stay in Roswell.
I am watching for other ideas about where to stay.
Thanks for all the input. We spent one night in Artesia - and it is a cute town. Oil smell was not noticeable. Had some character and some good restaurants. Then we spent 2 nights in Carlsbad - one in an awful hotel and then a better one. Not much character here, but it was enough closer to make it worthwhile. Also some decent places to eat.
