“Owner really cares about this motel and treats guests well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2010

I stayed here while passing though on a roadtrip westward. I chose Monterrey based on the reviews. Gustav was pleasant and clearly cares about the motel. He emphasized the non-smoking part and was happy to share nearby restaurants. You get an assigned parking spot right in front of your room, which added to my piece of mind since I was moving and had my car filled with my belongings. The room has an older style, but it was very clean and had the feeling like I was staying in my parents' spare bedroom. It felt warm and welcoming; not cheap and low-class. And for about $55, it also had a fridge and microwave. The motel is walking distance to Old Town, and Gustav has menus and maps that you can look at to help with your decision. Gustav is assertive and could be viewed as rude, but I thought he was very helpful and straightforward in his expectations. Afterall, it is his business and livelihood.

Read other's reviews and decided to try it out. Definitely a good bargain! Nice Polish proprietor, clean room, had everything I needed, and it was just a short walk to Old Town Plaza. And, being female and alone, I felt quite safe. And they had a sweet old dog in the office, I loved it!

The hotel was nothing fancy, but it isn't easy to get anything clean and comfortable for such a low price. The room was as clean as can be, and the bed was actually quite nice. It is conveniently just a couple blocks from I-40. Has an interesting 1950's feel. Definitely worth using if you're on a low budget. I will definitely stay there my next trip through Albuquerque.

This is a renovated motel on old Route 66 within easy walking distance of Old Town. Our room was spacious with plenty of light, something often lacking in motels. There was room for both of us to use our notebook computers at the same time comfortably, with free wireless access, of course. Lots of room for our stuff. Heated inground pool with pleasant sitting area, coin-operated laundry, microwave and fridge in the rooms. All in all, very well planned and very clean. A most welcome place to stay for those of us who would rather spend our vacation dollars on something besides 5-star luxury. We would definitely stay there again.

If you want to walk to Old Town & the Biopark this is the place to stay. The rooms are very comfortable at a great price. But if you want pleasing landscaping, a window view and a magnet pool area then you should look elsewhere. Their pool looks serviceable enough for cooling off but not something you'd want to sit around for half-a-day.

My friend and I stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the throw back rooms, complete with a ceiling fan, glass glasses, coffee mugs, serving tray (no plastic), 'grandmas' flowered sheets, etc. Would recommend this motel to anyone traveling through Albuquerque area. Within blocks of Olde Towne, take the train to Santa Fe.
