Was charged for damage that was disputed. I called to discuss. Was told that it wasn’t possible to talk to the manager. Sent 2 emails to management to contact me. Only wanted to discuss, but was refused.

Unfortunately, damages are not disputable charges. We keep documentation of all damages and will not refund these types of charges. If the item stained or damaged is a towel or sheet, we allow you to take them for yourself since we can no longer use them. If you can get the stains or damages out of the item to a point we can use them again, you can return the items to us and we will issue a refund after housekeeping staff has verified the item(s) are usable. We only store damaged items for a limited period of time, no more than a week. We are happy to help you understand more why you were charged so it doesn't happen in the future. You can contact us at any time.

Arrived late and checked in without any problems. Friendly staff and a clean, spacious room. Parking it was well lit and felt secure (we had a car full of stuff due to moving). Live feed video cameras visible in the lobby. Wall AC worked almost too well. Breakfast was the usual, but due to covid it's served. Only complaints (small): pillows are large and hard, sink sprayed too much, and no way to dim the really bright light for the ac (we finally covered it with socks). We would definitely stay here again.

No one has any idea what they're doing. I came in a day early from my reservation and let them know I have a reservation for the next day. They were sold out of the room type i had reserved so I let them know I'm ok with moving or staying in the room they gave me. In the morning I asked if I needed to move rooms or if I was staying in the same room, it took them over an hour and they had to call a manager cause they didn't know what to do. I worked for 10 years for choice. Just a heads up there's 2 ways they could have done it and I tried to help but they were so lost. They could have canceled my incoming Reservation since it was booked directly and extended my room by one more day or they could have checked me out of that room and checked me back in. So easy and simple. I had 3 authorizations on my card that I had to wait a week for it to fall off. The room was really hot as the ac is a little tiny unit in corner of room but otherwise the room was actually really large and rate was great for area. The other problem is no one wears masks at all. They aren't abiding by the state mandated order. I really wanted to like this hotel but it needs work.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay at our property, we appreciate the feedback. We are glad you found your room to be clean and spacious. The AC units we provide in our rooms are rated to handle the size of the room, and the size of the unit can be deceiving. Regardless, we apologize if you had any problems with the unit, and our maintenance team will perform a check on the unit in the room you stayed in to ensure it is performing up to standard. We apologize for any delays you encountered during check-in as well. A guest checking in on a date before their arrival date is not too common of an occurrence, and front desk staff may have been confused or inexperienced in that situation. We have learned from this experience and will use our new knowledge to better cater to guests in the future. Finally, all of our employees are required to wear masks, and our guests must wear masks in the lobby. This is a mandate put in place by both Choice Hotels and the State of New Mexico. We have notices in place both in the lobby and in our employee's workspaces reciting this as well. We are sorry if you feel that in any way your health was threatened. We do everything we can to mitigate risk and promote the safety of our guests. Thank you again for choosing to book Econo Lodge Old Town for your stay and we hope to make a better impression with you on your next stay in Albuquerque.

We stayed here a few years ago and thought it was a good value. It still is close to Old Town, had a decent clean bed, and was pretty quiet. It seemed to take the AC all night before it got really cool. The bathtub faucet had a very fast drip. What I really didn’t like was seeing guests without masks in the lobby/breakfast area in the morning disregarding all COVID safety protocols. Staff was not enforcing any discipline nor did I notice any signage to that effect. I turned around quickly! We will not stay there again.

Hello and thank you for taking the time to write a review about our property. We are glad to hear the room was comfortable and that the location was convenient for you. We apologize for the problematic faucet. The maintenance team has been made aware and will fix the issue. You can always call the front desk 24/7 if you have any problems during your stay, and we would be happy to help you resolve the issue faster. Additionally, we are sorry to hear you felt unsafe in the lobby. On the contrary, we do have signage up informing guests of the current COVID-19 regulations set in place by the state, and our breakfast options are adhering to these regulations. It is up to the guests to make sure they keep themselves safe when around others, and we are not obligated to force guests to wear masks, although it is appreciated. We hope we addressed your concerns and we hope to see you again on your next visit to Albuquerque. Econo Lodge Old Town.

It's an easy walk to old town & ABQ's Plaza Vieja. Very clean, nice beds. Upper floor rooms have nice views of the Sandia. Easy access to several good eateries, as well as mass transit--the buses on Central Ave run frequently. Also really easy to get up & out of ABQ by car--great access to the freeways. Quite affordable. Nice breakfast, too. This is my go-to in the city. One of the nicer Econolodges that I've ever stayed in.
