A warm welcome was just the start of a very comfortable and affordable overnight stay at Econo Lodge Old Town - literally a two minute walk to the centre of Albuquerque's beautiful Old Town. Perfectly situated for ease of access when travelling east through Albuquerque along Route 66. Big comfortable bed, lovely big bathroom and arctic air-conditioning - it was... More

We arrived just before 6pm without a reservation, no vacancies. We looked tired, the clerk kindly asked us to wait while she made a phone call. Our good fortune, there was a cancellation! She quickly processed payment, gave us keys, and provided a map to restaurants within walking distance. Our ground level, non-smoking room was bright and welcoming. The furnishings... More

Our newly remolded rooms have been a bit hit with our guests. I am sorry the breakfast room was crowded. We... More

I've stayed here before. It was good then and I think it's even better now. I called the motel on the morning of my expected arrivan and asked that they save a room for us on the ground floor.

I have always thought that the Econolodge brand was low budget, unsafe, and might have cleanliness issues. I stayed at this Econolodge by default and was very tentative. It turned out to be one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The owners are attentive, wonderful people, who care about every detail. The room was clean, safe, quiet.... More

Staying 5 nights at this Econo Lodge was a pleasure. The rooms were very clean and recently renovated. The breakfast was excellent, including 'real' eggs. The indoor pool was very nice. The location is ideal - on Route 66, and only two blocks from the center of Old Town. The owner, Johnny Mangu, is so hospitable, and quickly gives attention... More

The rooms were nicely priced and clean. The breakfast was the best we'd had on our whole trip. It was easy access from 1-40. We stayed both coming and going from our destination. Because I live in an urban area, the locaiton did not concern me. We actually walked to and from Old Town after our Ghost Tour.
