I had a room at the hotel attached to the casino/theater at the Route 66 complex. The hotel is fairly small for a casino complex. but the rooms are fairy new and the rooms have a view of interstate 40 and the desert. Internet access is complimentary, and there is one of the best buffets in the area and other... More

We stayed here with our family, including one teenager and grandparents, for 5 nights. Something for everyone - pool, games, gambling, fitness center. Nice rooms and great price. We went on day trips into Albuquerque - the biopark, Petroglyphs, zoo, Sandia Peak, downtown, etc., then returned for the evening - pool time, gambling, rest. Sometimes the pool was too crowded,...

This was a nice hotel. I arrived in Albuquerque to attend a friends graduation. I wanted to stay in the historic route 66. I chose route 66 Hotel and Casino. The restaurants were good however, the staff at the front desk was very rude.

This was our 2nd hotel stop on an 11 day vacation. Nice big room, big TV, and whirlpool bathtub. Valet parking and bell service for our luggage. Check in and check out very quick. We ate at the buffet, food and service were great. Would stay here again if I am in the area.

The rooms were clean and adequate. They are typical for a hotel that is attached to a casino. There were issues with the card keys, they kept deactivating. And when you're tired and want to go to bed, the last thing you want to do is track down to the lobby to get a the key reactivated.

In late April, we enjoyed a 2 night stay at Route 66 Casino & Hotel. Our room was clean & comfortable with excellent linens. Valet service was convenient. Highlight of trip was Heart Concert. Amazing venue!! Hotel is located 15-20 minutes west of Albuquerque....not an issue with so much to do on property.

The overall experience was good. Clean room. Clean casino. We opted to try Thunderroad Cantina for supper. Before we entered we were told by a complete stranger, "the food is great but the service is horrible ". He did not lie. The receptionist literally ran off and left us. We could not keep up with her. All we could was... More
