Six of us stayed in the Hotel Blue for a week in June! We had a marvelous time and we're all treated in such a friendly, helpful manner. From the front desk to the shuttle drivers, we could not have asked for more. The hotel might need a little paint, but the rooms were clean and the beds were excellent.... More

I use this hotel frequently since I do a lot of shows at the Launchpad. The rates are very good. The hotel rooms are really nice and clean. The downtown view is beautiful. Staff are friendly. I recommend this spot. It's located in the heart of downtown. Great place to stay if you want to check out our downtown.

Picked this place because it was close to old town. It was nothing too fancy and even a little bit dingy but I didn't mind. I'm sure there are nicer places in the area. We were on the 4th floor on the side with the pool so it was a little loud in the evening when the pool was busy.

Went there alone and for the 1st time to attend a conference in Conf centre, downtown, june 2007. I booked there 7 years after and found the hotel unchanged. Friendly staff at the reception. We were 3, wife, myself and son, 17yo. Great breakfast, nice beds. Should say that rooms are still unchanged with an old-style air conditioner, a bit... More

We had 2 reservations for 2 rooms each that I made. We were visiting Albuquerque for 2 days at both ends of our trip. The reservations were made for the 2 rooms for a Wednesday and Thursday night, and then the second reservation for 2 rooms, for the following Monday and Tuesday nights. At both check-ins, I was informed that... More

Hotel Blue has only two things in it's favor - low rates and very good beds. The hotel has seen better days. The rooms are well passed being updated. The door to our room looked like someone had chipped at the paint for several years. The rooms all have exterior entrances meaning other guests, in various states of drunkeness wander... More

If you're looking for a Motel 6 but want to pay twice as much, then The Hotel Blue is for you. But if you want a nice, comfortable hotel, then look elsewhere. Design: Clearly the architects had previously majored in designing public housing blocks. If you're looking for council estate chic, then you will marvel at the wrap-around walkway design.... More

I like staying in independent hotels. Like others, I was encouraged by the good reviews, only to have them a bit shattered when we arrived. It was definitely not funky or boutique-y. It was just tired. Check in was fine. I thought I had a reservation, but didn't, but no problem getting us a room. Was fairly encouraged until I... More
