“Our wonderful under some not so wonderful circumstances”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Can't say enough about this place after we were stuck for 9 days due to our trainers semi breaking down. This staff was exceptional. Considering the circumstances they really looked after us, even getting up at 3:00 am to take us to the bus station, so we could get back home. Rooms were spacious and clean (I mean clean I have been some to some pretty fancy places that were not this clean) My husband really liked the breakfast. Location is perfect, walking distance to Old Town, Aquarium and Botanical Gardens. Only a couple of miles away from Downtown and Museums. I could not have asked for a better place to have an unscheduled stop.

We were hearty greeted in the reception area. We had a room a bit further back from the street. We had two great nights, quiet and comfortable. The room was very clean, smelled fresh and the seating area even had a (fake) flower. Old Town is a short and easy walk, just watch the traffic. MacDonalds and Wallgreens are neighbours.

I am from Albuquerque and still travel often to visit family and take my kids to medical appointments. We were looking to save a few dollars and stay close to family. I chose this motel (not really a hotel) based on all the awesome reviews on this site. Upon arrival the staff was very friendly. Our room was located on the top floor. As we got up the stairs all we could feel was the extreme heat from the the ac units in the hallway. The room appeared clean but it was very very basic. We got settled then left for the evening. When we returned to our room it was HOT!!! We tried to run the ac and with no luck and several calls to the front desk (it was 10:30 pm by this time) we were forced to ask for a refund. The staff was again very helpful and found us a room up the street.
My only problem with this place is it really doesn't match up with all the awesome reviews here on Trip Advisor. It is an older very basic place to stay. Hopefully your ac unit works during your stay otherwise you will find yourself looking for another place to stay.

Room Tip: During the summer don't get a room right off the stairway. Because of all the units exhausts bei...

Perfect location (5 minutes on foot to old town), very friendly staff, huge rooms, clean bathroom, free wifi and parking, good breakfast, relatively silent for being downtown. You get all this at one of the cheapest fares in Albuquerque. The staff was so nice that when we were leaving, they offered us some fruits for the trip. Really, this is THE place I would like to come back if I went back to ABQ.

Just finished a fabulous breakfast at the Econo Lodge. Best breakfast on our road trip so far. Scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, country potatoes, biscuits & gravy. All hot & fresh. Make your own waffles and the usual coffee, juice, cereal, etc. Management is friendly and kept the breakfast area clean and stocked. They do a great job. Free newspaper.
Room is clean and bed is comfy. Micro., refrig. and coffee maker. Air conditioner worked well. Room price is great.
It is two blocks from Old Town, which did not impress us. The Plaza at Santa Fe is better.
The area around the motel looks a little run down, but we felt very safe.
Overall I would highly recommend this motel.

We stayed here on the second day of our trip to the Southwest and it was fine for the night. This econolodge appears to be an older motel that has been remodeled. It was clean and comfortable. We got a suite for 80.00 plus tax. We didn't really have any complaints EXCEPT the very steep staircase up the second floor. It was tough lugging our huge suitcases (packed for two weeks) up and down the stairs. Anyway, it was close to our balloon flight launch site so it met all of our needs.
