Surprise, Arizona
Reviewed November 9, 2014

The Owners are thoughtful and respectful of their guests. Their premises are fastidiously cared for. Rooms are modestly furnished AND extra clean. Breakfast is home cooked by the staff...delicious scrambled eggs and the best bacon....also the sausage was not greasy....very tasty. Hope you enjoy this location as we did. Very convenient to Old Town Albuerquerque!

I've always been hesitant with econo lodges; I grew up in a small town with one beat down econo lodge. I was specifically looking for a pet-friendly hotel with an indoor pool on this trip, as I am traveling with a dog, 2 cats, 4 adults, and one 2yr old. Whew! Well this was our best fit and was a...

Location is great. Old Town Plaza within walking distance. Prices reasonable. Rooms and bathrooms very basic. Room amenities could need more attention. Breakfast (included in room rate) was a positive suprise, considering that this is more of a budget accommodation. Hot and cold items, make your own waffle, etc. Only a handful of tables. So, arrive early to catch a...
