We ended up in Albuquerque during the Balloon Festival and chose the Historic Downtown B&B based on TripAdvisor recommendations. We couldn't agree more with all of the positive comments about the warmth and graciousness of the owners (Kara and Steve - although we only met Kara because Steve needed to be out of town). Kara made us breakfast at 5:00AM on the morning we headed out to the fairgrounds to see the hot air balloon "mass ascension" (an outrageously beautiful thing to see) - and her willingness to do anything to makes guests comfortable was outstanding. There were snacks and fresh fruit and cold beverages in the big kitchen refrigerator at all hours. The B&B is at the edge of downtown on a quiet street - but not far from I 25 and close to some good restaurants (including the Artichoke Cafe).
