“Don't Bother”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We have stayed at the America's Best Value Inn and Suites/North on Alameda Blvd several times and really like it, so decided to try this location because we wanted to go to the zoo and it was closer. What a disappointment! The room was not very nice, the bed was uncomfortable and the staff was unfriendly. We also felt the location was not very safe. I would never stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Clean and comfortable - not entirely quiet. Three of us stayed in a double queen room during the balloon fiesta. The gal closest to the door said she could hear trucks once in a while - but I, in the further bed, didn't hear a thing all night. As far as I was concerned, it was a quiet night's sleep. The price was very reasonable - especially considering balloon fiesta - so we were happy with the hotel.

Room Tip: For quiet - ask to be away from Central Avenue as much as possible.

We are glad to get your review. It is a little difficult to keep it quiet during Balloon Fiesta as we are always full to capacity at that time. We hope to see you again this year.

During check in the young man was very kind and made the experience relaxing. He assisted us to check in and gave he acted as a good guide to the area, which was a very nice place. The rooms were very clean and it was surprisingly quiet at night. Breakfast was basic stuff, but it wasn't stale cheerios like most hotels. I see myself here again in the future because this hotel is MIND-BLOWING

This was one of the cleanest rooms I have ever stayed in. It wasn't a huge room but had everything we needed. The bathroom was very large for a motel. Everyone we spoke to from making reservation to checking in was super nice and very helpful! Would definitely recommend staying here.

I spent 4 nights here to take the bar exam at the Albuquerque Convention Center - which is about a 20 minute walk from the hotel. The staff has been very pleasant and very helpful. My room was very clean and comfortable, and had a coffeemaker, microwave, and iron/ironing board - there's also a basic complimentary breakfast with coffee, juice, cereal, fruit, and muffins. The exterior of the hotel is also very clean, and there's a small but nice pool. Excellent for the value. The kind and helpful staff made a stressful exam experience much more pleasant.

I have to admit that being used to a bit higher priced hotel experience my expectations were not high. I was pleasantly surprised! I will certainly stay again when traveling to Albuquerque. Our room was very clean and smelled nice and fresh. It had cleaner carpet than most higher priced hotels that frequently have that sticky floor feel. The manager on duty was helpful and quite nice. We had a very pleasant stay here.

We needed budget accommodations in ABQ and ended up at this motel through hotwire.

The pros:
- Rooms are huge (really a 2-room suite) and have great amenities: fridge, microwave, ironing board, wifi. Very clean and appear to be newly renovated.

The cons:
- A/C units were LOUD. Far louder than what one might expect. Bring earplugs.
- The pool was closed--awaiting inspection. The main reason we booked here was for the pool, so this was disappointing.
- Breakfast was awful. I've had the free continental breakfast at many budget places, but this was the worst I've encountered. (All pre-packaged, shelf-stable fare.) Just a couple of tables in the eating area.
- Our key cards never worked properly. We kept having to get them reprogrammed at the front desk.

Fortunately, there's a terrific bakery/cafe across the street. But if you factor in having to buy breakfast, then this place isn't the best value any more.

Thank you for the feedback, we do feel awful that you had such a negative experience at our hotel. If you came to the office with these problems we would have attempted to fix some like the a/c. Our pool is now ready and we apologize that you came while it was closed. The summer season has barely started and it can take a while for the pool to open. We are also working on improving our breakfast. Thank you for the feedback and we apologize for your experience.
