“Very pleasant stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

This place was such a delight! We had never stayed in a Motel before so wondered about it. Tripadvisor reviews recommended it big time and it was a great deal too so we decided to give it a shot! We were very very pleasantly surprised by the experience! It was more like a bed and breakfast! The hostess Kiki is extremely friendly and hospitable- she made sure our stay was extremely comfortable and we had everything we needed in the room. Guest satisfaction is definitely her top priority!
It is also conveniently located - close to Old Town and also an hour's drive from Sandia Peak and 15 miles from the tramway.
Definitely recommended for a clean comfortable and cosy stay with a wholesome breakfast!

We stayed here during our recent trip to view the annular eclipse. The hotel was exceptionally clean and the owner very helpful. The breakfast was good and included your typical selection of cereal, fruit, yogurt, toast,muffins, etc.. It's a bargain for the area and located fairly close to Old Town. We missed out on the nearby steakhouse ( closed on Sundays) which I hear was previewed on the Food Network.

Everything we needed for an overnight stop on our road trip. Basic amenities, but clean and the owner is concerned about your satisfaction. Continental breakfast included. For the best price, pick up a traveler's coupon book (found at welcome centers)...can't beat the value!

The managers were very helpful, even with the door keys. A real change to find a clean, tidy and well kept hotel. Well done! Slept well and large bathroom, plenty of towels and warm too. No restaurants open locally so had to buy microwave meal from a local store. Breakfast was good.

Room Tip: ground floor and had disabled areas too

I was excited to stay at such a highly-rated hotel in Albuquerque, but was sorely disappointed. The owner was nice and the room was clean, but that's all I could say for it. My husband couldn't sleep all night because of the loud road noise in this not-so-nice location. There were only a couple of other guests, which didn't surprise me after I saw how boring the hotel was. The "indoor pool" looked like a hot tub, and the "breakfast" was a poor and unsatisfying bite. I really don't know why this place is rated so high. We kept saying, there must be some pretty bad places in Albuquerque!

From the moment we checked in until we left the next day, everything went well. The owner / manager is a trip! She is excited about her place and takes a great deal of pride in it and your enjoyment of it. Rooms are clean and well kept, location is near Old Town, price is incredible and Kay is a joy. We enjoyed our night here as much as anywhere else we stayed during this 15 day trip.

Room Tip: Let kay guide you, she'll treat you right.

I took a chance on this place because it was reasonably priced and had such a high approval score. This was indeed a pleasant surprise. The owner is a kick and the little motel just oozes pride of ownership. Sheets are clean and sweet smelling, Bathrooms are well scrubbed. Breakfast is continental Plus and always fresh. There is a popular Mexican cafe across the street, a fabulous grocery store close by, and old town is about a mile down the road. The owner is friendly and very accomadating.

Room Tip: The owner offered to give us a larger room
