Not a high-end place, but if you want a nice clean room with very nice, helpful management at a great price, close to Old Town, this is hard to beat. I especially like the thick walls - nothing disturbed our sleep at night. The full hot breakfast was a nice surprise at this price.

We chose this place because of earlier reviews on Trip Advisor. It was clean and efficient, and just a block walk from Old Town Albuquerque, and not much else, and in most respects it was just a typical motel room with bed, dresser,TV, sink, and shower. The bed was comfortable, but the walls barely subdued the loud family next to... More

This was a clean, affordable hotel with very good service and a yummy full breakfast. Highly recommended. Stayed there on a trip through to Nevada. On the way back home, thought I had made reservations here, but accidently mixed it up with Econo Lodge DOWN Town, also on Central Ave. They are not comparable at all. Be careful not to... More

Rooms are clean, service is great, people are friendly. Excellent hospitality. Walking distance to old town. They also rent bicycles. Lots of channels on TV, nice pool. Overall I am impressed and would highly recommend this place. Especially for fellow truckers. They have 2 shuttle cars + a van to take you anywhere you want to go within a 5... More

Location, location, location. If you want to stay close to Old Town and want a Very Good Budget motel, this is the place. Walking distance about 2 1/2 blocks to Old Town. Stayed in a King Suite, very comfy bed, large room, great air conditioner. Elena, the Owner/General Manager, was very personable and very helpful. Recommended a New Mexico Restaurant... More

Stayed one night August 30 and didn't want to spend a lot of money. Econo Lodge was clean, quiet and very reasonable. Staff was very helpful with city info and provided an excellent map. Super good free breakfast: eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, grits, biscuit along with juice and coffee. Will stay there again when we visit Albuquerque, NM! SLL

Stopped here on our way to Gallup. We were looking for a reasonably priced place to stay near the interstate. Rooms were clean, nice and value priced. Service was excellent. Pool and hottub were indoor and heated. Kids were impressed. Would definitely stay again.

My daughter and I spent six nights at this clean, reasonably priced motel and were impressed by the friendliness of the staff, the tasty morning breakfasts and the care we saw in maintaining the grounds. It is located within walking distance of Old Town, down the street from a Walgreen's and easily accessible on Central Ave. NW. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

While it is on a busy street in an old neighborhood, we found that the convenience of the location offset that minor negative. For a 'budget' motel, this place was great -- clean, comfortable, friendly, and with a very good breakfast. It is walking distance to both Old Town and the excellent Botanical Gardens and Aquarium portion of Bio Park.... More
