This place wasn't a bad place to stay. The room was clean and seemed like it had been remodeled. The breakfast wasn't one of the better ones. If it provided protein it would have gotten a better review. The guy at the counter did take our suggestion, and that was good.

We used our GPS to find a motel close to the Square. We called and booked the room and low expectations while driving the next two hours, because the room rate was in the $50 range. It was a rare rainy and chilly night when we arrived. The gentleman in reception was very friendly and helpful, and the room was... More

You offer the worst "breakfast" I have ever had in at least 50 motels! Thanks for serving it early for the balloon fest though. (at 5am) This motel is acceptable for the low price I suppose, but barely.

An easy drive from the airport and close to the interstate, so just what we needed after a long flight.

This stay was good. There was no major issues. The evening manager was very polite and friendly. The bathroom was extremely small and had a small toilet pretty close to the wall and only a stand up shower which could have been cleaner. The air conditioner took a little while to cool down but it did work. The beds were... More

This is a great old motel right on Route 66 and right off I-25, easy to get to wherever you want to be in Albuquerque. Our room looked like it had recently been remodeled and was large and very nice. They have some pretty funky weird room keys and we thought our lock was not working properly, but it turned... More

We were traveling across country in a moving truck, the front desk clerk was a great help finding us a parking spot close to our room. The room was very comfortable. There was a good selection for breakfast, complete with a complimentary newspaper.
