After our recent two-night stay at the Monterey (our first), we wondered how we had never heard of this small motor court. (We usually stay at a mid-range chain hotel near the interstate. What were we thinking?) This is an extremely convenient Rt. 66 location with clean, spacious rooms, and hosts that were helpful and friendly. We pulled up right... More

We needed one night near the airport and the Monterey worked out perfectly! The friendly owners run a class operation.......modern pristine rooms, great mattresses, high thread count sheets (and I must tell you, if Martha Stewart was grading the person who made the bed, it would be A+).

We stayed at Monterey's Motel on a trip to Flagstaff AZ from Texas. The room was spotless and upon checking in I was provided with ample information and recommendations about "Old Town" and attractions in the area. The owners clearly take a lot of pride in their establishment and it shows.

This motel is located close to Old Town. They advertise as within walking distance. It's possible to walk there, but just as easy to drive. Located on the main Central Ave. You can take that road and drive to quite a few locations pretty easily. Nob Hill for one. Clean room. Great old style with modern convenience. Quiet. I'd stay...

Really nice little American style motor motel with a fully working neon sign. Nice sized rooms, clean and reasonably priced. Great location 5 mins walk from the old town with some nice restaurants etc.

We chose to stay here because it looks like the kind of place we'd stay when we were young. It is! The rooms are VERY clean, although a little small. The bed is only a queen, and that's a little small for us, but it was very comfortable and not a problem. There is a ceiling fan, bathroom very well... More

I have stayed here several times over the last 6 years when traveling through Albuquerque. We have a family of 5 that is hard to get accommodations for. They have a room that is not on the online reservations that has 2 queens and a queen foldout for a very reasonable cost. The pool is warm and immaculately kept as... More

Great little place to stop, and stay for the night especially if your going for the look, and feel of classic Route 66. The couple that runs this place, are very sweet, and respectful. Definitely will stay with them again if I'm ever out this way again

I spent 2 nights at the Monterey Non-Smokers Motel and found it absolutely charming and perfectly located. It's within walking distance of Old Town, and right on Route 66 (Central Avenue) which can take you pretty much anywhere you want to go in Albuquerque. I thought the vintage/70s style decor was completely charming and the pool was just an added... More

The Old Town Monterey Non-Smokers Motel is a completely remodeled Old Route 66 Motel. It has the Old School Neon Sign out front glowing their warm-welcome in the sunset-evenings. This Motel takes you back to a simpler time in America, and is only one and 1/2 blocks away from the Old Town Albuquerque Square. The coffee maker in your Bathroom... More
