It seems like the hotel owners are trying to bring this hotel back to life. Check-in was a very smooth process. The hotel rooms are from an outside entrance. The wifi worked very well. They have pumps at the sink and in the shower for soaps and shampoos. The breakfast was free and had a good selection of choices. The... More

The hotel is clean, and the bed is super comfortable. The morning, free buffet is comparable to other similar buffets. The WiFi is quick. There is juice available 24 hours. Parking is fenced. The location isn't the most desireable.

What a bargain - everything you could want for a reasonable price. Clean, deliciously comfortable bed, huge TV, fridge and freezer, microwave, coffee maker and a fake log fire!!! Awesome cooked breakfast. Best value we have had in America - travelling on a medium budget. Great bars just up the street and secure parking. Sad I didn't get a chance... More

Love the views (night time & morning) the tempurpedic bed is amazing, the service was great, the pool, the proximity to downtown (our favorite place to hang out)... everything was perfect both times we stayed! Can't wait to go back :)

Perfect location on Central Ave. downtown Albuquerque. Close to Zoo, Old Town, Botanic Gardens, Aquarium and just a couple of blocks from the historic Kimo Theatre. Staff are pleasant and helpful, we brought our bikes and were allowed to store them in one of the conference rooms when we weren't using them. On Saturday mornings there is a farmers market... More

The beds are great, rooms quiet and close to downtown events. They upgraded the Direct TV channels also. They give you a few basic tolietries and water. WiFi is free, but sluggish. I will continue to stay here if they continue to improve. Good value and location

This hotel is an incredible value. I don't understand why the place want packed. The rooms were clean, the price was right, and the continental breakfast was great. They even provide real plates, cups and silver ware. Try getting that at this price at on of the big box hotel chains. The pool area and lobby are also very nice.... More

We were in town to play at a local venue and needed a place for the night. This was right down the street from town and very easy to get to. We lucked out and got a room on the top floor overlooking the park. Our king size bed was the best as it was a tempurpedic (all beds are)... More

From the outside, this place looked pretty old (definitely needs some improvement to the building). But the room was nice and very clean. They have the best bed (tempurpedic), and wide selection of TV channels. The room also had a microwave and a refrigerator which was very convenient. The hotel offers a nice selection of free breakfast items. The swimming... More

The beds are the main reason to stay at this hotel, you are guaranteed a comfortable night. Our a.c. unit worked perfectly and the room was clean. The internet is free and fast, the TV has more channels than any other hotel I have stayed in. As for breakfast, We will find out if we can drag ourselves out of... More
