“Wonderful stay and beautiful Lodge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

The staff at the hotel was very friendly, I was also very please with how clean the rooms and bathroom was. The beds were quite comfy and we enjoyed our visit very much so. We loved the decor of the whole lodge it was just beautiful. Would definitely recommend this Lodge to anyone.

Room Tip: Only down side was no complementary breakfast was offered.

This hotel offers a lot for a family on a budget. We found it through Expedia.com. We never would have stopped to inquire about prices if we were to have passed it on our own. Outside appearance is nice, Navaho-ish, and unique. The lobby is big and welcoming...and there is a bar! (A huge plus). Swimming pool is partial indoor/outdoor so it is a tad cold. Exercise room has two treadmills and two ellipticals. Rooms are spacious with a groovy Indian print carpet. Shampoo and soap is nicer than most. There is an outside balcony. Sink and mirror are separate from shower/toilet. Only drawbacks: beds are squishy, walls are thin, and pillows are small. Good hotel if you want a change of pace from the usual family economy hotels.

Room Tip: Rooms with connecting doors don't offer much noise protection from neighbors. Stay on higher flo...

The staff at any hotel or restaurant make all the difference in the world. I am so pleased with Nativo Lodge, NM and especially Sher, Natasha (Both from Cafe and Room Service)and London (Reception) for their wonderful service and care. They were professional and personable that I not only enjoyed my stay but conversation with them.

I added two days to my trip. Price is value and I received both at Nativo Lodge. I will return for my next visit to the Pueblos.

Sincerely, Linda Corona-Brown

Room Tip: Stay on floor 3 or above.

This place has been one of the most TERRIBLE places we have ever stayed. 2nd night we were there, we could hear the people in the next room, talking and using fowl language which my son in law told them to stop talking through the wall, which after 5 min. they didn't stop, he went down to talk to the front desk and complained. The last night, we were there, my husband and I were in the same room, when at 2 am in the morning, we could actually hear 2 guys and 1 lady talking loud, using fowl language for about a hour and half, after talking loud, we could hear the couple having sex, the bed hitting the floor and the lady moaning and groaning, and then talking till like 6 am!!!!!! I thank God we didn't have children...because the staff doesn't seem to care one bit after complaining. Don't understand all the good ratings this motel gets, has to be the staff writing them, sorry Nativo, NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!

stayed at the nativo for just a pit stop between albuquerque and phoenix. I really wanted to like this hotel, its in a good location, the staff is really friendly, and the decor is amazing. The rooms are well apppointed and up to date, but i had problems. 1) The shower, probably the most overly complex shower mechanic ever, theres a ring inside the nob you have to pull out to get it turned on. After 15 hours driving this was unappreciated. 2) the wifi would not work for me, couldnt get any traffic through. I had my mifi so it was ok, but still annoying. 3) After pulling back the covers what do i find, a nasty stain on the sheets, maybe dried blood, not sure. But since its 2 in the morning i just covered it with the sheet and slept on the other side of the bed. Gosh i eanted to like this hotel. Oh almost forgot the restaurant is just ok, the breakfast taco was spicy but unremarkable. andbthe lobby noise last night was really audible in my room. turning up the AC fixed that though.

This place was simply disgusting. I had to stay here for a conference so I had no choice but I would never stay here again. When I first got there, outside my room was a bunch of roomservice trash in the hall, and it was there until the next afternoon. Everything was so dirty. The trashcans in my room were full and I even had a burnt out lightbulb on the nightstand. When we were in the conference we would have to stop talking because the kitchen staff was yelling at each other so loud we couldnt hear each other. The pool is gross, its super slick and slimy, the treadmills are next to worthless.You have to pay for breakfas as well, which is just nuts now days. Everything here just plain sucks. Dont waste your time or money here.

Room Tip: make sure your not near the pool or on the front of the building. The walls are paper thin so you he...

The guest room was clean and just the right size for us and our two small dogs. The room was quiet; no noise from the neighboring rooms or the traffic on I-25.

We stayed here for 7 days while on vacation; everything was just as we expected when on vacation. We would recommend this hotel to others coming to Albuquerque for business or vacation.
