I strongly advise guests to go elsewhere. You cant walk to close convienient stores without a bunch of drunk or high guests stopping and harrassing you.

I have stayed in many hotels in Albuquerque and this is by far the one with the most comfortable beds. They also have a kitchen with stove, refrigerator and a small dining table in each room.

Presbyterian Medical Services put me at the Sahara Hotel because of my new baby, and I thought it was excellent. The people there were decent and the room was very clean. The kitchenettes also were nice and so was the garden and pool. I recommend this motel a lot.
