2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

For starters, it's now a Motel-6 and i'd more than call it a Motel-1 for the number of stars i'd give it.
When we arrived we were met by the staff's screaming crying child behind the reception desk and we were not impressed with the odour. Having booked this place to stay for 4 nights we immediately cancelled after one night and sought lodgings else where.

The room and building smelt stinky, the sheets in our room had holes in them and our bed was held together with a plank of wood with a giant screw sticking out of it...the bath taps hadn't seen a clean in years,,,no coffee or tea making facility in the room, NO breakfast provided which came as a shock, when we booked the room to include it. There was nothing to make this a stay memorable for the right reason. This place is just so down market for even the easiest to please person that I am.

Overall i'd give this place a big miss and move up the road to the Red Roof Inn for a better deal all round.

Room Tip: Avoid this place and go somewhere else!

We stayed when it was Econolodge (one review mentioned the name has changed to Motel 6?)
Visit is always during mid-May, before before Memorial Day and start of summer...
Good location, indoor pool (mind the slick surface around the pool!). The staff was always friendly and rooms were clean, but did in bad need of updating. However, we go to Santa Fe for the outdoors, downtown etc.

Room Tip: ask to see the property before you commit. I would advise this for ANY hotel!

First of all, we couldn't find this place because we were looking for the Econo Lodge sign but it is now a Motel 6--supposedly a very recent change. What did the room have? A huge, deep crack in the bathroom sink and a noisy heater. What did the room not have? No coffee/tea maker; no iron and ironing board, no tissue paper and not even a 'Do Not Disturb' sign. The Continental Breakfast is bye-bye too. You can get a cup of hot coffee in the morning. The sauna was not working and the jacuzzi was well heated but looked as though someone put dish soap in the water--bubbles everywhere.
I'm not a fussy traveler but do expect to get what is advertised. Am kicking myself for not spending $5-10 night extra and getting a Much nicer experience, especially during Santa Fe's off season.

This hotel is as good as the money you pay for it. Considering its less expensive, it is also not a great hotel. The staff is nice and was more then Willing to move me to another room at midnight when i could not sleep because of a loud utility room. The rooms are about as blah as they come. Not the cleanest but they met my standards for money I wanted to put out. All in all, its not bad for the cost. DONT EXPECT HILTON SERVICE IF U ARE NOT PAYONG FOR IT!!!

We got the last room available the 1st weekend of the balloon fiesta in Albuquerque. At least 13 other hotels were full and the nice staff at the Holiday Inn Express (next door) recommended it saying it was clean.

She was right, it was very clean. Probably better then the remodeled (2007) hotel we stayed at the next night. So while the carpets, bed spreads and pictures weren't the height of fashion, I could live with that, in part because of the cleanliness.

The bed wasn't the greatest bed I have ever had but it certainly wasn't the worst either. I didn't notice problems with noise. We turned the air conditioning unit on when we got in and it was the perfect tempt

Overall, we were happy with our stay here. The carpet in the hallway was pretty stained and worn, so at first, I was a little worried. The room was nice, clean and appeared to have new carpet. The beds and pillows were small, but comfy enough... The staff was very friendly. The indoor pool and hot tub was SUPER nice!! Only a few issues: You CANNOT check in until 3:00. I know all places have check in times, but we've always been able to check in early.... (I remember checking in at 9am once!)....Absolutely no check-ins until 3. SLOW wifi..... and finally: 2 towels...2 handtowels...1 wash cloth......FOR 4 PEOPLE??? You shouldn't have to ask for a reasonable number of towels.....
