This is an older style motel with a fab neon sign. We paid $75 for a very comfortable room and bed. We left early but I don't think they offer breakfast although as a plus there are laundry facilities on site and great wifi. Very friendly owner. You can walk to old town. Go to the 66 Diner for a...

I made my reservations at the Monterey for my sister and myself for two nights. I wanted to go to the Botanical gardens for the African violet sale and show. It's within walking distance of the Motel. I got all turned around, and thought it was across the street from the UNM on central. NO, it was way up on... More

Wifey likes it when we can stay in old school, Route 66 digs, so the Monterey Non-Smokers was a no-brainer. Used Hotels.com to book it, and found out there was nowhere to indicate we had 4 in our party. Got to the hotel and the owner/husband/desk attendant had a few words to say about Hotels.com. When I told him were... More

"Charming" is the word we'd use for the Monterey Motel. The rooms are exceptionally clean, comfortable and well maintained by the congenial hosts. The Monterey is located within walking distance to Old Town Albuquerque and very close to the aquarium and the botanical gardens. We stay here whenever we get the opportunity.

A very good place to stay when visiting the old town. Our room was very clean as was the whole motel. The outdoor. pool was sparkling and heated. It was all very welcoming with pots of flowering plants around the pool and room areas. The owner was very helpful in giving directions and for dinner suggestions.

My family thoroughly enjoyed our brief, one night visit to Albuquerque largely thanks to the Monterey Non-Smoker's Motel. The room was large and clean and comfortable and like stepping back into the 70s. Perfect Route 66 kitsch. The service was amazing. Shortly after checking in, Boll was knocking on our door with an extra set of towels, because her husband... More

We were a family of four and stayed 4 nights at the end of a road trip from Las Vegas via Zion National Park and the North Rim. We stayed in quite a few of motels on the way and this was certainly the loveliest - a touch of Route 66 nostalgia, big clean room, fabulous pool, and really welcoming... More

Obviously this is a non-smoking hotel which we are always enthused about when traveling. This is a small motel located just west of Old Town in Albuquerque. It's small enough that we even had a designated parking spot in front of our room. We had two queens which were comfortable. The TV had plenty of cable channels, and the room... More

we had read the reviews and booked a room for early August. What a great decision.Henry and his staff are fantastic! Ultra clean rooms and bathrooms! Well maintained motel. We can't say enough nice things about this place. We will always stay here from now on when visiting central New Mexico.
