The hotel is in an industrial area - true - but if you have a car, that's really not going to matter. The welcome was friendly and the bedroom was HUGE, easily the largest we stayed in during our 3 week road trip. Convieniantly located for the NM state fair (which is well worth visiting if you're there when its on) and easy to get to the Sandia Peak cable car and the town centre. Breakfast was great, with a large selection available. Fantastic value for money, would stay again.
