“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

This was hands down the BEST Bestwestern hotel we have ever stayed in. We travel a lot! The night clerk was friendly and got us checked in immediately at 1am after a long days travel. The rooms were very clean and the bed was comfortable. We woke up the next morning went to the front desk and ask if they had breakfast and we were given breakfast coupons for a free breakfast. Awesome property for a quick night sleep on our way to Phoenix, AZ. We stopped booking Best Western hotels but after staying here it was a great surprise! Good job and check up the great, clean and friendly hotel.

Clean and comfortable place to stay. Good location for Old Town visitors. The staff was very nice.
I would prefer a charge for pets based on any damage done. Two year oldchildren do much more damage than our dog who did no damage and we were charged $20 up front.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The hotel is in a good location near Interstate 40 and Old Town. It is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is not included in the room rate, if that is important to you. They do have a restaurant at the hotel and offer 20% off breakfast pricing to guests. The heating system can be a bit noisy, especially if you leave the bathroom door open.

Room Tip: Tough to choose, since the hotel is at a busy intersection of an Interstate and main road.

Feb. 21. This is a great location and perfect for visiting Old Town Albuquerque, which is right down the street. Staff friendly and helpful. Restaurant on site which is great when traveling with a pet. One of us stays and relaxes while the other orders carry out on site. Parking is fenced and gated. Gates are locked at night and we were told there is nighttime security staff.
We enjoyed the art by local artists in our room. Room was large, clean and well-appointed. One of the best. Excellent value.

I don't know where to start on how bad This hotel is. First of all, they seem to like to leave religious recruitment material in your room. Secondly, their idea of remodelling is adding dark southwestern paint to an already dark room with noisy heating and air conditioning. They market this as an "Old Town" hotel, but the truth is it is a long walk or a short drive to Old Town. I would never stay here again. The staff is nice and the rooms are clean if you are just passing by on the highway. I would rate this hotel as 2 stars.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from freeway side.
