I stayed for one night in the "jacuzzi bed king" room. I called hotel directly to book. From the moment I checked in I was impressed. Very polite and professional staff... Which I've found can be hard to come by in New Mexico. They paid full attention to me and got me taken care of. Room was clean, laminent floors... More

We didn't pre-book this place, since the place we were at the night before was totally unacceptable. Just went on the recent trip advisors reviews. The owners had 2 rooms for our group, and was more than helpful to direct us to where to buy liquor and for supper. The breakfast was super as noted in previous reviews, along with... More

We keep staying at this hotel due to the excellent service. The managers really make you feel welcome and comfortable. The rooms are really clean and have really nice amenities. I took my wife and kids to Albuquerque and I made a reservation through an external site to the hotel, I need to mention that this third party did not... More

We take a yearly trip across country and have had some pretty bad experiences with budget hotels in general, and Econo Lodges in particular. It was with a little trepidation that we booked a free night (through the Choice Hotels) program at the Albuquerque Oldtown Econo Lodge. Our stay was stellar! Friendly and helpful staff, really good coffee and fresh... More

The property itself is average, but the service continued to exceed my expectations. Elena (owner) helped me find live entertainment for that evening before I reserved my room. Just one look at the live plants tells you they care. You can check in early or out late. There are ample outlets for YOUR stuff. Refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker are standard.... More

Everything was great, true I are in the middle of a big renovation and the rooms are great.they have both non smoking and smoking which most hotels I have been to don't have any more unless they are a motel. The breakfast is great and have plenty to choose from. The location looks a bit sketchy but great restaraunts.

This was a surprise stay. Such great value for large and very clean room. Its run by a family so they take great pride in the place which makes a difference. Would easily stay here again. Close to old town restaurants and the staff will help you with recommendations and more.

I usually consider EconoLodges to be basic clean accommodations, but this one is way better! The location is primo...within walking distance to the Old Town ABQ and the Bio Park. The breakfast is over the top (not merely your typical continental breakfast, but hot items, as well). The staff goes out of their way to be friendly. As a ChoiceHotels... More

Arrived from a long drive at supper time. Quick check in and helpful information. Dining option that was in walking distance in Old Town proved good. Room smelled good and was clean. Given a bottle of water and apple for the next part of our road trip that next morning.

Picked this hotel based on reviews here, we were not disappointed. It ticked all the boxes, clean, friendly staff, quite and comfy. We got there a little early and our room wasn't quite ready.
