“Restored My Faith in B & B's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Following a recent business meeting in Albuquerque my wife and I decided to escape the conference hotel and try something different. Our reading the rave reviews we decided to give the Chocolate Turtle a try.Our past B&B experiences have been less than stellar so we had some trepidation about this one. We can say, however, that the Chocolate Tutle fare exceeded our expectations.
Dallas and Nancy are great hosts. We were the only guests at the B&B for two nights, but we received the full treatment. Both mornings we had full breakfasts that contained a variety of fruits, juices and entrees. Our hosts made sure to provide turkey sausage for my non-meat eating wife. The Road Runner room was big with a great shower. The bed was comfy. We enjoyed the chocoate turtles in our room and the fresh cookies that are always available. We also liked that water, soft drinks and snacks are always handy.
Our hosts were perfect. They have a great sense of when to be present and when you would like some time alone. All in all it was a great visit and one we're sure to repeat.

Frankly I have been leery of B&Bs after a few bad experiences, but the Chocolate Turtle and Dallas and Nancy really changed my mind. Such attention to detail! They offered the best balance between good conversation and privacy, beautiful views and the most amazing breakfasts! I would highly recommend this spot if you are coming to the Albuquerque area.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the private patio, it has a mountain view!

The owners make you feel both at home and like an honored guest. The rooms ae uniquely decorated, with lots of fun color and southwestern flair. Great breakfast, too, with plenty of fresh fruit, breakfast meat and a fun entree. Snacks are available in the evening, also.

Room Tip: Look unline to choose the room tat fits for you.

The innkeepers, Nancy and Dallas, made this special. They are kind and considerate, know how to keep the guest satisfied, and can cook like a TV chef. I often toss and turn the first couple nights in a new lodging, but there's something about the restful Southwest decor and the quiet rooms that I slept soundly night after night for my five-day stay. I was there in the winter, and they kept a good fire going in the Great Room, and hot coffee, brewed and Keurig. The location is close to the shops and restaurants of Corrales, a charming arts community near Albuquerque. It's more than a great place to stay because of the terrific price/value; I have family in the area and used to stay at hotels till I found this jewel.

Room Tip: All good rooms.

We really enjoyed having you here and were so pleased to hear that you slept so well right from the beginning of your visit. We were delighted that your family was able to join you for breakfast - hopefully when you return they can join you again and it will be warm enough to serve breafast on the porch where you all will be entertained by our bunnies, quail and roadrunners! Look forward to seeing you again. Nancy and Dallas

I love this place! Nancy and Dallas go out of their way to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. Add to that beautiful gardens, lovely southwestern themed rooms, and a restful atmosphere. And the breakfasts....ooooh the breakfasts. This is my favorite place to stay when I'm in Albuquerque.

Chris called the day before to confirm our arrival and gather helpful information. We found we are both from New Hampshire! So, already a connection. I had mis-entered the phone number to give an approximate time of arrival but she was graciously waiting for us. Excellent information on local eateries. Accommodating of our next morning early schedule. Absolutely lovely view to the East and Sandia Mt. at sunrise. Roadrunner room cozy and comfortable with all the amenities one needs/wants. Excellent self service of warm beverages and snacks in the dining area for "after" hours wants. Look forward to visiting again.

Our night at the Chocolate Turtle was peaceful and pleasant. The beds were excellent, the amenities were abundant and thoughtful, and the breakfast, french toast with blueberry compote was awesome. We would certainly stay there again. It's a perfect place to stay before going early to the dances at the Jemez Pueblo. Also, all kinds of shopping, big box and boutique, is nearby, just up the road.
