Walking distance of good breweries and restaurants. Tight parking for oversized vehicles but very secure. Very helpful staff. Enjoyed their breakfast. Convenient location. Clean rooms with nice views.

We loved this hotel! It's in a cool downtown ABQ location. We rolled in with no reservation snapped up a room for 80 something bucks, which included free secure parking in their gated lot. It is an older hotel that has been fixed up nicely while keeping with the original decor, it has lots of charm. 'Loved the rooms, we... More

As a community group that does policy work, we often hold gatherings in a variety of places across the state. The Hotel Blue exceeded all expectations and allowed this to be our most successful and seamless event yet. The staff were extremely helpful, especially William at the front desk who was always available for my many questions. Sunil, we could... More

After being rescheduled for a flight, I booked a room at this motel for one night. I was a single female and at first, at bit concerned about safety. After awhile, I realized, the place is safe. There is a high fence around the property and security cameras. And, during my stay, I saw that many of the people staying... More

This is a clean, quiet, reasonable place centrally located. Near Old Town, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. One must-experience bonus is the Saturday market in the park across the street. One of the best markets in a great setting.

We were on the 5th floor, with outside walkways to the rooms....which wasn't a problem.Room well equiped....would you believe an electric fireplace?!, as well as a fridge, microwave, iron and hairdryer. Staff were first class....ask and they responded quickly. Breakfasts were comprehensive (eggs, waffles, hash browns, fruit, cereals, etc) with USA Today newspaper. Free hotel shuttle service to Old Town,... More

All time worst hotel I have even stayed at. I also became very ill while there. It was absolutely filthy. We were stuck due to the city being oversold for a convention. I would have been better off sleeping in the car.

The HOTEL is actually a MOTEL. Being a very light sleeper, I had requested a room on a higher floor, far away from the noise. Although I checked in early (3pm), I was put on the 2nd floor (out of 6). We had a group of young women talk in front of our door until about 3 am, then party... More

Honestly this place was shifty. The "gated parking" was definitely a necessity. The carpet in our room had stains and the lamp shade was broken. The beds were good, and the bathroom sink was lovely, but that's about all I can say that was good. Our room was supposed to have complimentary water, but with two beds/2 occupants why was... More

This was inexpensive, clean with a very comfortable temperpedic bed. It looked like the hotel had recently been renovated -- both the rooms and common areas. There was a good breakfast included. The hotel is located close to downtown and old town. The hotel still needs a little attention, for example the doors were scruffy -- but I had no... More
