We saw it on Trip Advisor and decided to stay. It was like checking into a hotel from years ago. We filled out an actual card, including car information. In the room the spotless glasses were covered with plastic wrap and the little table had a vase of flowers. We took out a pizza box and the owner met us... More

We stayed in this motel which is very close to the old town, you can park your car in front of your motel room and visit the old town by foot. The price was very reasonable (read LOWER) compared to other motels/hotels which for some reason was much higher on that day (possibly some event in town?). True it's old... More

Located on route 66, called Central Ave in ABQ, this motel is clean, safe, friendly and great value for money. Handy for the Old Town too which is small but worth a wander for its american native/mexican galleries and boutiques. Not much else in ABQ except a few Breaking Bad sites which they really could exploit more...

We were very happy with our stay at the motel. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Bo was pleasant and gave us a good recommendation for dinner, High Noon. It is located a few blocks from Old Town and was a short walk. I would stay here again and recommend to others.

Travellers of Route 66 will appreciate this period motel, nicely maintained in the style of the era. Our room was clean, large and airy with tasteful furniture. Good modern bathroom facilities still keeping In style.

We originally planned to stay at a chain motel but when it had no vacancy, they recommended this motel. We are very glad they did. The owner was friendly and the room was very clean and large. Very near to Old Town and Botanical Gardens. Owner gave us some recommendations for restaurants and the one we chose was very good.... More

Close to Botanical Gardens, zoo, Old Town. Very clean, quiet. Near restaurants and main streets. Nostalgic feel to it, took me back to a different era! Owners are indeed European, and very nice. Highly recommend. I will be back the next time I'm staying in Albuquerque.

This motel was recommended by friends and we were so glad we followed up on their tip. It looks retro from the street with neon lighting and would not have caught our eye if we hadn't been told of it. As a bonus, it is a short walk to the historic Old town Plaza. The owner recommended several,places to eat... More

We were on a road trip vacation during spring break and decided to stay here because it's close to Old Town, had a decent price, and was non-smoking. I thought it was great to stay somewhere that still uses actual keys to unlock the door to the room. The room was big and clean and had everything we needed. They... More

This is the way a Route 66 motel should be. CLEAN, quaint, comfortable and reminiscent of yesteryear. I've been staying here a couple of times per year for the last 13 years and it's always one of the best on the Route. You won't be disappointed.
