It looks nice. Much of the hotel space is designed around public areas on the first floor. Ceilings are very low on the rooms floors. Bathroom showers are very small. Vanity in Bathroom is mounted high. Hopefully, you are a tall guest, and skinny because bathrooms are small. Front Desk staff is very friendly and hospitable. Bed linens are in... More

For New Yorkers, there's really just one direct flight to New Mexico, and that's the late-night JetBlue flight. It gets in around 11pm, and if you're continuing on anywhere (like I was, to Santa Fe), you probably don't want to get in a rental car and drive an hour with jet lag. For that scenario, this was a great place.... More

Great hotel. Clean, large rooms, comfortable beds, pull out couch, large showers, clean bathrooms, etc. Indoor pool, hot tub and sauna. Starbucks in lobby. Great for concerts at Isleta...close to venue. Few things to know before booking; No continental breakfast, but you can order/pay for breakfast, finger foods and other meals. Pool is indoors, which I actually liked. No laundry... More

We've stayed here many times when we need to be at the airport early the next morning. It's well located, good parking, has a restaurant and bar, fitness area. In addition, it's generally quiet and easy to get that short night's sleep before an early flight. I've been finding lately that the Reception staff is getting less and less professional,... More

The very best thing about this hotel was the view over the city of Albuquerque. It was stunning; however, our room was on the opposite side depriving us of the best attribute. With that being said, you will need a car to do just about everything else that Albuquerque has to offer. Although they have a restaurant and small bar,... More

I am an avid user of Trip Advisor and have never had a problem bases on reviews. However, in this case, I must write a poor review and with the number of motels I would NOT recommend this one to travelers. The hotel wasn't very clean. The room was okay but the room was not restocked with toiletries, ice bags,... More

This hotel was quite nice. They had homemade chocolate chip cookies every afternoon, and they were the best I'd ever had. I'd give them a great rating just for that, but of course other things go into a review. The beds were unfortunately a bit high, and because I'm quite short (5ft. 1"), it made it difficult to get in,... More
