Staff were friendly and the room was comfortable. There was a bit of noise from the neighbours opening and closing doors. Pool was refreshing. Location wasn't walking distance from any restaurants or attractions and not in the best part of town.

We drove into ABQ late at night after driving all day in the rain. We found a special on hotwire for 40 bucks and didn't know what to expect. I called to find out about non-smoking rooms and the man working was absolutely the best thing about this place. He made sure we had two beds in a nonsmoking room... More

We made the arrangements late at night while traveling. When we finally arrived at 1:45 AM, the manager was waiting for us, and was very nice and accommodating, despite the fact we arrived so late. If ever in the area again would definitely stay there again.

The hotel staff was courteous and helpful. The room was nicely done, however the door didn't seal and there was about a 1 inch gap at the bottom of the door. Being so close to the hospital, all night long there were ambulances and the door not sealing meant we heard them all. The A/C also was very loud and... More

My first impression was iffy! To my surprise it was clean, and the staff were very friendly. We arrived around 12:30 PM they let us check in early. Nice place to stay for the money. I would recommend staying here. Close to the main part of town. Right off the freeway.
