We booked this hotel because it had such high reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. Owner/Manger Elena Baron greeted us with a warm welcome and gave us both a map of the Old Town and a wonderful restaurant recommendation. As Choice Members, we were also given a large chocolate candy bar, upon check-in! This was a first... More

First of all remember, it's an Econo Lodge. The rooms are large and clean. The staff is friendly. The hot breakfast (eggs, sausage, hash browns, waffles) is better than average. The hotel is about 4 blocks from Old Town and located on Central Ave (Old Route 66). We stayed there two times on our trip. Our first room was nice... More

I can't believe I forgot to review this place! I think I reviewed on yelp though. We were here for balloon fiesta in October and we are coming back for a few days in August. Very clean rooms and they fix anything broken in a timely manner. Very friendly owners. We are looking forward to staying again

Stayed for 2 days on a family vacation. Well kept and clean for a good price. Room was updated and it looked as if they were in the process of updating other rooms while we were there. Great location close to everything. Definitely not going to WOW you but if you are looking for a clean place to sleep this... More

My husband and I was traveling from our home in California to Wichita Kansas for a family crisis. Before we left home in the mist of planning out our route with the help of Triple A we decided we would stop mid way in New Mexico and get a few hours of rest. We didn't want to spend a lot... More

Had a spacious room with two beds. Unfortunately, there was no lighting near the beds, but I was able to move a floor lamp nearby. Similarly, I had to move a desk lamp to the top of the microwave to get light onto the desk/table. The room was crisp & clean; perhaps recently painted & refurbished. The floor appeared to... More

This looks like your typical 1950s cheap motel. But the owners are in the process of a renovation that is turning it into a jewel. The room was CLEAN! So clean. And the hospitality at the front desk was just superior! The breakfast each morning goes far beyond what one might expect from most big chain hotels. Its European flair... More

Very clean room, very nice people, way above expectations for an econo lodge. Did not care for Albuquerque, not worth a visit, unless it is the closest airport to tour final destination. Old town is ok, but lacks some personality. Breakfast was very good.

We were only here for a night, but the accommodations were clean and well maintained. It is quiet, a comfortable bed, and great location near old town. The breakfast was adequate, certainly better than many places in this category. Staff was friendly and helpful.
