A very economical and hospitable motel conveniently located near Old Town Albuquerque and the aquarium/botanical gardens/zoo. They serve a complete hot breakfast included in you cost. One can rent a bicycle also. The Albuquerque Journal is available for the taking.

Dear Virginiac168, Thank you for pointing out our hot breakfast. We’re one of the few hotels in walking distance of Old Town that does offer one. The bikes are also a great way to get around Albuquerque and enjoy the museums and parks. Thanks for staying. We hope to see you again in the future. Best Wishes, Elena M. Owner... More

Very well run and managed motel; close to old town. very nice linens and very clean. Thorough breakfast with eggs, sausage, bacon etc. the gal attending was on top of it all, w/ fast refills etc. Pool was small but refreshing. We got a room near the back, farther from the road noise.

This was recently renovated. There were wood floors and new bathrooms. There were hot items for breakfast, which was included. The location was an easy walk (just a block) from the town square. For the price it was a great place to stay.

It looks old but is very modern. It is historic like all the rest of the architecture in this wonderful area. Everything was neat and clean. The lobby is very nice and staff very friendly.

Dear Latresaann, Thank you for the fantastic review! Like most of the architecture around Old Town our exterior is very rustic. Yet, we have recently put a lot into renovating the inside of the hotel. We’re so glad you liked it! The area is fantastic, but our guests are even better. We can’t wait for you to come back through... More

We are hotel snobs and I didn't want to spend an arm and a leg to stay somewhere for less than 13 hours. Econolodge was great. Very crisp, clean bedding. Loved the new bamboo flooring! The new, quiet air conditioners were perfect. The room had plenty of room for 4 of us, and also had a fridge and microwave. Breakfast... More

If you walk along the road to the Old Town from this Econo Lodge, you are walking along a stretch of classic Route 66 urban ambiance (though not the trendy, upscale kind that you will find on Nob Hill a few miles East). The surroundings can be noisy, but the staff, and the design of the place does everything to... More

Caring management. Clean, quiet and safe Motel.The new A/C unit is efficient and quiet. Nice not to have noisey wall unit. I left some clothes in my room and Johnny and Elena the managers quickly sent them back to me. I would recommend staying here.
