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.

Well maintained and spotless, this vintage Route 66 motor hotel is everything other reviews report. The owner-manager is accommodating and helpful with area attractions and restaurants. Just a 5 minute walk to the historic plaza, it is well located and a true delight and exceptional value.

I reserved a room at the Monterey just for one night. Check in was fast and easy. Our room had its own parking spot next to the door. The shrubbery needed a little trim around our door, but you can tell the property is well maintained. The exterior is in good repair, the parking lot was well marked and there... More

We were on a Route 66 motorcycle ride and found one of those great old motels in Tucumcari New Mexico (Historic Route 66 Motel) but we were too early to stay there. The manager recommended the Monterey Motel in Albuquerque as that would be our final city of the day. We were glad she told us about it. The Monterey... More
