The service was great, I travel alot and appreciate comfort, from front desk who checked me in, she greeted me with a smile, and very knowledgeable in what she was doing, to restaurant, bar (Angelica), then the best part where you get a smile when you walk in the room, thank you! !

We stayed here 2 nights in April 2015, we are from England and were travelling Route 66. This hotel was welcoming, clean and helpful. Rooms great, breakfast good and servers very pleasant although they seemed run off their feet, but nevertheless polite and attentive. Reception staff helpful with advice on locality generally, one receptionist printed off a list of the... More

Krishna asked us if we were reward members and explained the benefits to us. Then while we finished breakfast she signed us up and got the info she needed and did everything for us. Then she brought us two goodie bags with water and popcorn for our trip. I have never seen someone so helpful taking the initiative that she... More

We try to stay here whenever we travel through Albuquerque. The staff is excellent and the location and accessibility are excellent. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. We like that it is close to many things such as old town and many local restaurants. The restaurant is very good and the service pretty quick

I went here after loosing my confirmed reservation at another place. The staff were quite empathetic and gave me a free room upgrade! This was an especially nice touch, since they had no associate with the other hotel. They were incredibily friendly, and you could not walk by a staff member without them saying hello and smiling. The room was... More

Enjoyed my stay in Albuquerque, NM. Nice surroundings, pleasant grounds and attractive room. The staff was friendly and offered to help. The attached restaurant had good service, great portabello mushroom and such a relief after a long day of traveling to just walk thru the lobby to dinner.

This location is right off the Interstate so easy on and off access. The room was clean, spacious southwestern décor. I requested a microwave ahead of time and it was provided. Refrigerator, coffeemaker was a plus. This is a pet friendly hotel and we were not in a pet friendly room but did get to hear the "dog fight" in... More

Great location when traveling I-40 between California and Colorado. Have stayed here many times and the staff has always been great and remember you from your last visit. Rooms are clean and the restaurant is okay.

I was very happy with our room here. The people at the front desk were pleasant and helpful, and the room was clean, quite, and very comfortable. (A few hot-tube goers got noisy for a few minutes, but that was really the only problem at all.) The included breakfast was great... Really. Cooked to order and not a typical pick... More
