I came to Alburquerque for a conference. I booked my room with Best Western becasue I love the Best Western hotel chain. The hotel staff (all) were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean. I liked the extra pillows on the bed. I loved the southwestern decor throughout the hotel. The food in the restaurant was simply amazing.... More

Very clean hotel, decent size rooms, wifi that worked well and friendly service. The hotel also in the winter time had an indoor pool and spa (which was perfect for warming up after those cold days) and a laundry for washing. Would stay here again.

Just spent two days in Albuquerque at the BW Rio Grande. Everything about the property is great, location (its just off I40) and two blocks from Old Town and the museum. Great attention to detail, Dee at the front desk even called after we arrived in our room to check if everything was OK, how often does that happen at... More

the Best Western Rio Grande looks "Southwest" with nicely appointed rooms, very convenient to the freeway and only a few blocks north of Old Town, the authentic Spanish colonial city. A helpful desk clerk gave a tip to a wonderful New Mexican cuisine restaurant and the hotel bad a good, free, from-the-menu breakfast. That alone was worth staying at the... More

Very clean, well appointed hotel in a good location close to lots of restaurants and just off the highway. Breakfast was a nice change as it was restaurant service versus buffet. The internet speed was the best we have ever experienced in a hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

We were very impressed with the pleasant and friendly staff. The location is convenient to the interstate and to old town Albuquerque. Breakfast was included and awesome. Many free choices and additional choices for a small fee.

Best Western Rio Grande Inn is 2 blocks from historic Old Town Albuquerque. The hotel is an excellent value, large comfortable rooms, onsite bar/restaurant, easy access to I-40 and I-25. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Food is OK. Free Wifi. Covered year-round pool. I would stay here again for sure.

We wanted to do a two day visit to Albuquerque, not spend a fortune on the hotel, and stay close to Old Town. This hotel fit that to a tee. We found the desk clerks to be friendly and helpful.

The location of this property is ideal, right off I-40, next to fine dining, and near to Old Town and downtown. Property is clean with good staff. Shower head and faucet were loose but all other amenities in fine working order. Very good value.
