This was easy to get to from the freeway. Large room, huge bathroom sink area. No fridge, that would be my biggest complaint. They only supplied 1 washcloth and I didn't use it because it looked like a cleaning rag. It was very stained with something brown (blood?) and a grey color. I didn't want to touch it. I was...

Wasn't planning on staying tonight but last minute change. It was convenient. Room had a slight smell but nothing I couldn't deal with. Room was clean. Very affordable. Had a Einstein Brothers Bagel and Starbucks across the street great for breakfast. Right off interstate

Not a bad place to stay No complaints Right behind Denny's. Right off the highway. I had my dog with me, and they didn't give me a hard time. Rooms were large and clean. The staff was friendly, and accommodating.

Unbelievable behavior from a the Front Desk employee today. His behavior would have easily caused any HR manager to relieve him at least for the day he treated a fellow employee the way he treated my girlfriend and I today. He was seriously questioning the accuracy of a newly issued New Mexico state ID today. Calling into question the height... More

The floor was coming up in places and the bed was hard, but the price was right, free coffee, friendly people and easy to get to. A great spot to see the hot air balloons from your room. Plenty of parking too.

Thea took care of me and is a very good host she helped me get everything in line with my stay and I recommend this hotel make sure you ask for the manager her names Thea. It's a good location and pretty much in the center of town near all of Albuquerque main attractions

The lady Thea I believe she's the assistant manager , was very good with us she's professional and courteous and truly knows hospitality we had a few problems but they were solved quickly by a gentlemen by the name of Eloy or Leroy one of the two...they are reasonably priced and will accommodate you to the best of your needs
