Henry the owner welcomed us in true old school friendly helpful style. The rooms are large and well equipped. Really luxury compared to others. This is a place to stay and within a short walk to the old town and good restaurants / cafes, etc

I've stayed at this hotel yearly because it is such a favorite. This year I was traveling with my 82-year-old father, my 38-year-old son and my 5-year-old grandson, which left me needing special accommodations to suit the group of us. And Monterey did not disappoint. We had a large room with two queen beds and a pull-out queen couch. The... More

This hotel has everything you expect or need for an overnighter on old Route 66. The hotel is right on the Mother Road and has the requisite neon sign to welcome you in. The owners (from somewhere in eastern Europe, I think) are nice, very hospitable folks and live on site. The rooms are like time capsules from the days... More

Great motel with big clean rooms and good beds. The owner is very helpful and it's only a short walk into the old town. Road noise is present but not too bad, a/c moderatly noisy, the motel represents good value for money.

We stayed here on our way to the Grand Canyon. Our host was very sweet and informative about Old Town which is only a few blocks away. The room was spacious and clean and an absolute bargain. We would definitely stay here again!

Pride in ownership shows at this motel. It was well-maintained, clean, comfortable and offered modern amenities in a nostalgic setting. It is truly a gem on the iconic Route 66. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Wonderful, clean and great hosts. Doesn't hurt that it is close to the best in Alb. The hosts seem to remember their Polish background! And the Old Town and Natural History Museum can't be met. what about the pizza place Farina- wow!

This place is immaculate, comfortable, and affordable. Owners are friendly, and the outdoor pool is delightful and really clean. The rooms are really clean. It's dated for sure - think 1985 - but, the beds are comfortable, and the rooms spacious. The location is perfect for walking around Old Town. That said, make your own plans - I think the... More

The Monterey Non-smokers Motel is a trip back into the past that folds around you like a comfortable chair. Everything is as we remembered it from the '50's, but cleaner and better maintained. (everything worked perfectly!) Location was close to all the attractions we had wanted to see, especially historic Old Albuquerque. Our host and hostess, (the Owners) were most... More

Really have nothing to add that others haven't covered. Cheap, convenient, clean and an easy walk to Old Town this is a perfect location. The rooms are large and quiet - and although an old building the place echoes the care that is obviously take to maintain it.
