Minutes from Plaza, Breaking Bad RV tours, and Museums. Easy access to rooms. Great breakfast. Accomodating staff. Central location made easy travel to either north or south Casinos, or any other destination.

This place does not accept cats and when we called we were told service dogs only. I am sure this is a nice place, but Trip Advisor needs to remove this place from their pet friendly list. Website says dogs ok, but this is not what front desk says.

This is a great hotel located within walking distance of the historic Old Town area. The facility has a wonderful southwest flavor with indian architecture, historic pictures, and beautiful decorations. But the important point is the hotel was very clean, fresh, and great service. The internet was fast, the beds comfortable, the air conditioner quiet, and a beautiful room setup... More

Great value, super clean, quiet spacious room, complimentary breakfast at on site restaurant. Secure inside corridors. Terrific location; near attractions, old town and river walk/bike path. Would not stay any where else in Albuquerque.

The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful and attentive. Recommended to anyone traveling to Albuquerque. Convenient location. Wi-Fi is free which is quite helpful for business travel. Restaurant on site so if you don't want to leave hotel, you have options.

All in all a good experience and a great location. It would be nice if the bar/lounge area was a little more upscale. We did not find it inviting - not a place to have a drink with friends. We had to walk over to the St. Claire Winery. Disco is not very classy. Perhaps it is more appealing to... More

This hotel is right off I-40 but very quiet. It was very clean and comfortable and the hotel staff was friendly. They have an attached restaurant which serves delicious food for a great value.

LOVE this hotel. Walking distance to downtown (and the train), great rooms, excellent rates. The pool is awesome and the breakfast is decent. We stay here each time we visit Durango, which is several times per year.
