The motel is in need of updates but very well maintained, except the parking lot that becomes a small lake when it rains hard. The room was comfortable and well air conditioned, mattresses weren't the best were okay. The breakfast room was small but offered a very good Hot Breakfast. The desk clerks we helpful in recommending places to eat...

Dear Jedd1017, Thanks for the review! We do apologize for the standing water in the parking lot after the rain. Luckily, in New Mexico that neither happens often nor lasts for long! We’re glad you enjoyed the stay notwithstanding. Safe travels. Elena Owner 505-243-8475

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel, I read the reviews but I had NO idea it would be as nice as it was! First off the staff was very very nice and helpful, then I open my room and there was NO carpet! YAY YAY carpet is gross and even the best hotels don't do a good job or...

I note that Elena (Owner) regularly responds to reviews on TripAdvisor. This provides some insight into why the Econo Lodge Old Town achieves such high reviews. This is budget lodging but the owner is clearly working to make the stay as positive an experience as she can. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and there was plenty of...

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...

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...
