The regional manager was so rude I left early, the rooms were filthy, the maintenance man kept knocking on the door wanting to check the smoke alarm, there were prostitutes soliciting patrons and the transients from the park next door were constantly knocking on the door asking for money. The wifi didn't work and when I inquired I was told... More

We didn't care where we were staying because we were putting more money input in our Vegas hotel after saying in Albuquerque for two days. If you plan on staying in Albuquerque for awhile then I recommend you finding a better place to stay and enjoy. This room was old. There was random stains on the bed sheets and such.... More

We were going to be arriving late and leaving early so we just needed a place to sleep for a few hours. It was cheap and the reviews were ok for the money, so we figured why not? The person at the front desk was very pleasant. However, when we drove around to our room there were many people milling... More

I stayed here before when it was a La Quinta so I figured now that it was a Motel 6, a slight downgrade would be expected. Lots of sketchy people milling around the parking lot. No pictures just the bolts that used to hold them. A tube television with only a rabbit-earred antenna which I haven't seen in 25 +... More

Opted to stay here as it was close to the interstate and had food and gas nearby. Originally planned on only staying two nights, ended up staying four. The room was clean, comfortable, quiet even with folks playing in the pool. Denny's is in the same lot, and the room key gets you 10% off your bill. Stair way was... More

We stay in this Motel only because we could keep out pet with us. It was a quick off of interstate 40 and back on the next morning. Very dirty hotel. It smelled and the people mulling around after dark made us all very nervous to stay. The one good thing I can say is the bed was one of... More

I only realized this is a Motel 6 after booking through Trip Advisor. I would have not booked if I had realized it was not La Quinta. There is a Starbucks across the street so I decided to stay. After checking in, I parked in front of the stairs to my room. I noticed several men peeking around two different... More

Rates at the Motel 6 at 2424 San Mateo (which must have formerly been a LaQuinta) were great. Rooms were very clean, no bugs, and office staff very helpful. Will stay there on our next visit this year
