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.

My short conversation with the owner/operator of this property confirmed my belief in the American Dream. This man came here from Poland to purchase a business and make a new life. This motel is his baby and it reflects his pride. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The provided WiFi was better than I have experienced at some of... More

We stayed only one night in this motel but we were quite pleased with the overall experience. The name itself sas all about the cleanliness of the room, being a non-smoker couple for us it's very important to stay in a room where nobody ever smoked. The room is quite big as well so it could be a good choice... More
