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. I did not give it 5 stars because even though the motel is great the restaurant is HORRIBLE! Don't know where they got their cook (won't come near calling him... More

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

Simple to drive to and if you are active, you could walk to Old Town. Well maintained hotel and the room was fantastic with the softest bed. We did not use the pool as we were just passing thru but it also looked well maintained. We did use the lounge and had a wonderful bartender (Krishna) who made a point... More

We spent only one night in this Hotel, but it was enough to have a very good impression of it. It is easy to reach from the highway, the Old Town Albuquerque is close by feet (not more than 10 min); the Guest Service is very good. Useful the patio close to the swimmingpool.

After spending a week in a tent and two nights in a somewhat primitive hotel in a remote area of northern Arizona, this was a triple treat. Warm and comfortable decor and ambiance, helpful staff, and a fantastic value. Convenient location on the interstate makes arrival and departure simple. The only weakness we saw was in the restaurant, where service... More
