We stayed here 8/4. The rooms wer nice and clean. The beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was nice with fresh fruit, pastries from a local bakery. I liked them because they were homemade and not your typical donuts. I think they also had a waffle maker( not sure), bagels, cereal, juice, and the coffee was good. They had a really... More

The new managers here are superb. The facilities were sparkling clean and the beds were more comfortable than a $100+ hotel or motel. The managers recommended a Mexican Restaurant in Old Town which was to die for. Try the Church Street Cafe if you eat in Old Town Albuquerque. We highly recommend this location and will always stay here if... More

I went to ABQ for an academic conference and booked the Econo Lodge because the nearby conference hotel was booked (and expensive). The new owners were very accommodating and addressed all my concerns, including loaning me their personal iron when the one in the room didn't work, which they replaced the same day. The room was very clean and the... More

The motel was a lovely surprise. It is clean, pleasant, and only a few walking blocks from old town and its many attractions. Although very centrally located, it is quiet. The management is exceptional. They are extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and very warm and friendly. Thanks to their attitude, the motel feels welcoming, personable, and cozy. The continental breakfast offered a... More

Stayed here for 4 nights while exploring Albuquerque. The hotel management gave us many recommendations for things to see. The breakfast was great, really fresh bagels and waffles. It was also convenient to be so close to Old Town we walked there several evenings to go out to dinner and to the ghost tour in the Old Town. Overall was... More

My wife and i were looking for a nice place to stay near Old Town and found it in this Econo Lodge. We booked the trip through Expedia to save a few dollars, and everything went as expected. Our plane had arrived in the afternoon, and they let us check in early so that we could unload our luggage. They... More

We stayed at the Nativo Lodge the night before and decided to stay here the second night to save $30. If I would've had the money to spend, choosing the other would've been worth it. However, this place was not bad for the money. The manager was very friendly. We had an issue with our tv, which was frustrating because... More

The new owners of the motel totally changed the motel for the better. It's now one of the best places to stay in Albuquerque if you're looking for a cheap, clean, conveniently located motel with a welcoming atmosphere. The historic plaza is just a few minutes walking distance away. But what impressed me the most is the extraordinary commitment of... More
