This place is in one of the highest crime zones in the city of Albuquerque. There are constant drug deals, prostitution, and violence in this motel.
Customers are shady and criminal. The rooms are disgusting, filthy, and one has to be careful with drug needles and such from previous occupants. Prostitution is common and people staying at the Sahara will most likely be leaving with some sort of sexually transmitted disease. Beware of previous occupants returning to your room to retrieve their 'stash'. They're likely to be carrying firearms and won't like the fact that you're in their 'office'.
We leave nearby this place and there isn't a week that goes by where there isn't a swat team, police car, ambulance, or firetruck on the premises. The owners are an odd couple and the man is often seen driving around the neighborhood in his van "running errands" at 2AM. The citizens in the area would love for this place to just be torn down in order to reduce the crime in the area. Giving these criminals and transients a cheap place to do their business is a detriment to the community and brings down the whole area. We hate this place and we fear for the safety of anyone staying at this disgusting motel.
Stay as far away from this place as possible.
