We arrived, two women over retirement age, at night, in the rain, in a less than fancy part of the city, from Tennessee and Delaware, Travel weary doesn't begin to express it. Reception staff were genuinely helpful. Room was spotless, plain and comfortable - the hardwood floor, unusual in itself, looked clean enough to eat from. Best motel breakfast I've...

For those on budget and wanting to be close to old town area this is good choice. I only gave it a 3 out of 5 because the breakfast was just ok, pool was cold, and neighborhood seemed a bit sketchy - it's also off busy road so careful when leaving since drivers speed by!

I don't usually choose Econolodge, but this particular Econolodge was listed in the AAA tour book, and had good reviews. I'm glad I chose it. The price, with the discount I got from my retiree organization was wonderful. The location allowed us to walk to Old Town. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was beautiful.

Everything was great. I didn't expect so much for such a low price. The room was really nice and I loved the hardwood floors. Having a microwave and mini fridge helped out a lot. The only thing that could be improved.., Maybe a curtain between the sink area and bedroom area would be nice.

This is a smaller hotel on a busy street. It is within walking distance of old town. If you walk around the area you will encounter homeless and "low rent" type folks. The outside appearance of the hotel is drab with no curb appeal whatsoever. The front desk staff were pretty good, but they did keep a line of customers...

Owner, manager-Johnnie made us feel welcome. Very clean-laminate floors which were very nice. Recommend to anyone with dust allergies as the floor appeared very new and clean.

We needed a coming-and-going place through Albuquerque where we were needing to stay only one night each way. We didn't want to spend a lot of money and yet we didn't want a "cheap" place. We also thought it would be nice to be near Old Town Albuquerque (we walked there). The reviews on this place were pretty accurate. It's...

The front desk service was great. They gave me a choice of 1st or 2nd floor and asked if we wanted to be near the pool because of kids. (Of course!). I loved that they had an indoor pool. Everything seemed to be in good repair. Room was nice and clean with new flooring. It was a squeeze to get...

I normally try to be as positive as possible and give everything the benefit of the doubt - or just be quiet - but really feel a need to share. The young lady at the front desk at evening check-in could not have been sweeter. I registered for the Choice Rewards program, and she managed (not sure how) to bring...

My semi-tractor broke down so it had to go in the shop. I found EconoLodge's number on the wall at the shop. They came to get me in the shuttle! Very pleasant & helpful staff, clean rooms, close to everything!
