“Best of the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Amazingly accommodating and hospitable Romanians (with 2 incredibly cute kids), a lovely couple, run this hotel. It is a refreshingly quiet, restful, and enjoyable place. The free breakfast is bountiful. The private jacuzzi in every room is relaxing. The air and the heater are new and work great. Rooms are large, clean, and relaxing. The beds have GREAT mattresses (I slept like a baby for 3 nights - better than at home). I have stayed in 5 star hotels that are not this nice. Treat yourself and stay here. It is also right down the block from Old Town - great restaurants and little shops. THE PLACE TO STAY IN ALBUQUERQUE. Don't let the name EconoLodge fool you. This place is better than some Hiltons and Mariotts I have stayed at.

Room Tip: Treat yourself and ask for a suite. I'm glad I did.

Very clean; modest; well-equipped rooms. Hospitality of management was awesome! From getting us around town reasonably (we're Amtrakkers) to daily newspapers to incredible full HOT breakfast to BIG smiles and helpfulness including coffee and fruit in the lobby all day long! If we ever get back to Albuquerque, we'd stay there in an instant!

Room Tip: All the rooms (we stayed in two separate ones on two different weekends) seemed great to us!

How this place ever got such a high rating is beyond me. The motel must be 60+ years old and it shows the wear and tear very, very much. The only positive thing I can say was it was relatively clean. I suppose if you cannot afford a real hotel, it would do. And I do mean the motel a 2321 Central Ave. NW in Albuquerque.

We found this via Trip Advisor, and are thankful for your guidance. The Econolodge has fairly basic but clean rooms, with Xbox TV, whirlpool bathtub and all the usuals. However, what makes it 5 star, in our opinion, is the $65 room rate and the excellent service by the hotel staff. A full cooked breakfast is included too (eggs, sausage, potatoes, pastries, fresh fruit, etc.)

Where else can you get all this for just $65 per night. Also, it is just a short 2 block walk to the charming Old Town Plaza.

Nice, clean, basic motel. I travel a lot and am not a fan of motels (I don't like easy access from the road, or not being able to open curtains without having people able to look into your room), but this was such a good deal I couldn't pass it up. This is a no-frills room motel. It was very clean and the people running it could not have been nicer. They also have a hot breakfast every morning. If you want something fancy, this isn't for you. The location is a quick walk to Old Town, where there are restaurants and shops.

Great value and a great location. We found the room to be clean and spacious. Our room had a mini-fridge, microwave, WiFi (it actually worked) and a HD TV. The breakfast was a full, hot breakfast not the usual ceral and muffin. In the lobby they had complimentary newpapers and baskets of fruit (apples/bananas). They have a indoor pool and rent bicycles. Old Town was a 5 minute walk and there was plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby. We planned on two days in Albuquerque and another two in Santa Fe. Instead, we stayed 4 days here and drove to Santa Fe. There is also the Rail Runner which will get you to Santa Fe for $7.00. The staff and attention to detail is another big plus for this motel. We highly recommend the Econo Lodge Old Town.

If you are looking to stay close to Old Town in Abq. and price is a consideration, look no further. Yes, it is old. But the people that run this place are the friendliest and most accommodating I have EVER experienced! Who could imagine, that there would be a whirlpool tub in a $60 motel! Everything was clean and the breakfast was abundant and did I mention the people were the nicest I have ever encountered?????
