Rooms spotless and ideal for a family of 4. Pool well kept and a wonderful hot tub! Would be nice if breakfasts were included in the rates as... More

I got this on Hotwire and I'm delighted with the price and the location. It is just off Hwy I40 near Old Town. I stayed 2 nights. The room had a microwave and fridge. I love having a fridge. There is a fitness room and business center with computers one can use. They give you a coupon for breakfast and... More

A great value. Conveniently located, secure parking, great dining, friendly staff, clean rooms, and up to date facilities. I always try to stay here whenever possible. The best value in town. Complimentary vouchers for drinks and food are an added bonus.

We'd spending 2 nights at this hotel and can't fault it. The rooms are large and clean, the staff helpful and a free breakfast with options.

This Hotel was nice. because I had a dog we were put in a room that I assume are dog rooms. I would like to make a suggestion. When it comes time to change the carpets. you should replace the floor with tile.

Walking distance to Old Town ABQ and Museums, easy access for transit lines. Lots of entertainment in Old Town. I have stayed at this motel over and over for around 15 years now. Free shuttle to/from airport and Indian Pueblo Cultural Center; free breakfast (complete, not just a muffin and coffee); and free Wi-Fi in/out of rooms. It is amazing... More

We always stay here in our trips through town (about 12 times a year) and it's our favorite motel in Albuquerque. Always clean and well maintained with very nice rooms.

Overall the hotel is ok. Not great but still a value. You can tell they sunk a lot of money into a facelift not long ago. Anyway, It's clean and it's safe and the staff are awesome! In particular Krishna. Whether she's serving me breakfast at 6:30 am or adult beverages at 9:30 pm she's always cheerful and spot on!... More

We were very pleased with the Best Western Hotel located within walking distance of Old Town (and the museums), located immediately off I-40 on Rio Grande Blvd, Albuquerque NM. The hotel was very clean and nicely furnished; the staff was very helpful. Definitely a 3++ Star Hotel for the money. The complimentary breakfast was good, but (WARNING!!) be sure to... More
