Wife and I have stayed here at least 5 times dating back to 2002. Rooms have a rustic southwest decor along with high ceilings. Rooms have always been clean/tidy and spacious. Our most recent visit was to ski at Santa Fe with our children. We mentioned to young clerk that we stayed here in on our honeymoon back in 2002... More

We enjoyed a very pleasant stay - twice...once going to and once coming from our destination. The room was clean and quiet & the king size bed was extremely comfortable! After breakfast, my husband and I enjoyed a game of table tennis in the hotel's activity room, followed by a wonderful swim and hot tub soak in their "tropical garden"... More

This is your basic older hotel and nothing fancy, but was a decent place with a large room and clean for a night's stop. The cost was reasonable and the breakfast in the morning was adequate. I would stay here again if the occasion presents itself.

I was not going to bother writing a review about this place, but I feel that other travellers need to know what to expect when booking a room in this place. I went ahead with the reservation trusting the excellent reviews I came across from third parties, little did we know.... We arrived late, tired and fatigued after a long... More

I'm happy to hear that you found our check in process pleasant and our manager charming. I'm sorry that we only had a second floor room available. Sometimes that is all that we have available at a late hour. I'm sorry that you did not find our place at the same standards that many of our previous guests have. Thank... More

The hotel is an extreme budget hotel, and as that its pretty good. first the positives, the pool was nice, our teens enjoyed it, the hot tub was also quite nice. Breakfast was decent, waffles, hard boiled eggs, fruit, cereal etc. The hotel is also exceptionally clean and well maintained for its age, and it still has those charming bottle... More

When we pulled up, I was nervous because the hotel isn't attractive. However, the woman at the front desk is friendly and the room is adorable! Great for a stop thru on a road trip. Heated pool and spa was decent. The wifi was spotty. Breakfast was waffles cereal, toast, muffins, bagels, biscuits & gravy but it was about 15... More

After 5 nights of camping, we needed a shower and a place to lay our heads. I have had some bad experiences with ABV in other states, so I was hesitant about the stay. The lady at the front desk allowed us to look at a room before making a decision. The room was beautiful! Love the South Western look,... More

Stayed here numerous times. First time back in 3 years or so and unfortunately it has gone down a bit. Rooms are fairly spacious, the beds comfy and the wifi was pretty good. The rooms felt dated with stained walls and carpeting, the lack of power outlets and poor TV reception. The pool/spa greenhouse area still has that tropical feel,... More

This is a good location and reasonable rates. Can not comment on breakfast as we did not partake of it. Room was clean while dated, It is a straight shot into downtown and old town. Right near the pantry, not walkable, but a short drive for great breakfast
