This motel is located about 7 block west of downtown Albuquerque. It's also located close to the historic Martinez Town neighborhood and the University of New Mexico. That being said, this motel sucks because the hotel staff are rude and unprofessional. The maids are the worst. They think they can barge in whenever they want to to clean or exchange... More

Arrived in ABQ @ midnight, needed a place to stay believe it or not Imperial was recommended. Arrived at the motel checked in for $40. Right of the bat, the night clerk was unprofessional and catty. As soon as we stepped into the room it was stifling hot! Turned on the cooler, in the beginning it blew cold air. As... More

I arrived in Albuquerque late on a weeknight and was just looking for a room to sleep in, grab a shower - and then be on my way. No such luck here. Do _not_ waste your time trying to save a few dollars by staying at this hotel. I can not speak about any of the other hotels in the... More

This place is near a few other hotels and is the cheapest of them. The young man who took us in was very nice but the rest of the workers were not. I'm not even sure if they spoke English because they never smiled nor said a word to me even as I was checking out. I refused to walk... More

My wife and I stayed off and on at this hotel for one month. Except for Thomas the night shift clerk, the actual owners were the rudest people I have ever met. First of all, the price changed everday. The sign reads 21.99, but when you enter the lobby, the price quoted depends on who is working. If you say... More

This still didnt work, while waiting for the managment we noticed that there was blood on the bathroom wall, and inside the droors people had... More

We stayed here on a way through the US...also using the 66. There is lots of options you have in town. But if you want some good food and some sightseeing / shopping, you wanna stay around the Central Avenue (that's the Route 66 called in town). Like I said, there are many options to spend the night. But some... More
