Every employee at this hotel was helpful and kind. The room was spotless. There was no germ-ridden bedspread - just blankets encased in clean sheets - I love it when hotels make beds this way. Location was excellent. Free parking, walking distance to old town and neighboring studios, restaurants, the botanic gardens and an unexpected trail system just 2 blocks away - perfect for running in the morning. The pool was indoors and clean. Swim towels were provided. Breakfast was large and plentiful. When we stayed, the hotel was fully booked, so seating at breakfast was tight, but a kind stranger offered to share a table with another couple so that our family of 4 could have his table. At breakfast both mornings we stayed, there were eggs, sausage, bacon, various rolls, waffles, biscuits and gravy, toast, english muffins, bagels, juice and coffee. Wow! My favorite part was the friendliness of the owners. So nice to arrive in a never-before-vistited city and to be greeted with a genuine smile. I would definitely stay here again, and I will recommend it without hesitation to anyone traveling to Albuquerque.
