Excellent in all ways, except no exhaust fan in the bath room. The breakfast was an all-you-can-eat buffet and was fantastic! We stayed there because of a medical requirement we stay in Albuquerque overnight, and MCM Elegante gave us a medical discount on the room.

We are glad you enjoyed our guest room at a discounted rate and hot breakfast. Did you inform the front desk on the bathroom fan issue - it would have been resolved immediately! We appreciate your comments and you are welcome any time. More

The motel was under construction remodel-new carpet, furniture, bath fixtures, decor. They quit working at 7pm as promised. Walls are thin so you can hear talking in next room. Room was nicely remodeled. Front desk personnel were very nice. Breakfast quality is a disappointment overall. Bisquits and gravy were good. Coffee was good. A good value.

Thank you for completing this survey regarding your recent stay at our property. Remodel of rooms will be shortly be completed. Walls are made of concrete and hence noise from next room is not heard unless they are exceptionally loud. What was wrong with breakfast quality specifically? Did you inform the breakfast lady in charge? We could have resolved it... More

We were on our last leg of our 6000 mile journey across our beautiful country and had found this Best Western thru trip advisor. Read the reviews which were good. However, we were charged a $25 booking fee when we called the 800 number plus we had to pay in advance. This caused a little apprehension as to the kind... More

Clean inside and out, friendly professional staff, comfortable bed, good shower, good breakfast, has a good Italian restaurant next door ... I stay here this time every year and have no expectations of changing that.

We had a comfortable nights stay after along day with the grandchildren. It was a late check in after a high school football game an hour's drive away. Our handicapped room had be saved for us. Check in was as simple as saying we're here and over the keys. Breakfast was excellent.

We were very pleased with our room at this location. The room had been recently remodeled. Vanity and bathroom areas were clean. This was a great location: convenient to freeway, but far enough away to avoid freeway noise. Spacious area for dog walking. Good amenities nearby

The bed slept well, the room was clean, especially coming from Wyoming and Idaho area. I'm not sure how they could prepare the "breakfast" so bad! We couldn't eat it. Price was average as was the hotel. I would try another hotel and won't be back to this one.

The rooms were nice and the night clerk was help full and very nice. She made it enjoyable to check in after a long day of riding motorcycles all day. Breakfast was disappointing Canned gravy and it was not hot. Not up to the same quality as the other Best Westerns that we have stayed at.

Hotel was clean but just a plain décor. Staff were helpful. Breakfast bombed big time. Cold and did not taste very good. Could not eat it. A/C was noisey. Rooms were a little small but seemed like a older motel that is being remodeled.

This Best Western was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly, helpful, courteous, professional, and caring. Breakfast was good and filling. Even though it was a full house for the night, it was very quiet in the room, even being above the swimming pool. It was an excellent stay, and I highly recommend the Best Western Van Buren Inn to...
