“Wonderfully surprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

We chose this inn because of previous reviews and found it to be exactly as we'd read. The room we had was just redone and very clean. A fridge and microwave were included, and the bed was comfortable. The price was very reasonable. The owners are so nice and eager to make your stay with them the best. If ever back in this area, I would definitely want to stay here again.

I stayed at the Sandia Peak Inn Motel for seven days this past August while helping my daughter get settled in Albuquerque. The rooms were very clean, roomy, and comfortable. Kay was wonderful! She told us she was available 24/7 and she was. I'm going back this winter with my husband and plan to make Sandia Peak my home away from home again.

We stayed two nights and everything was very good. Kay, would go out of her way to make sure you had everything to make your stay plesant. We would come back. We had two other couples with us and we needed a big table in our room to play cards. Kay went out of her way to accomidate that request.

Staying at the Sandia Peak Inn Motel was as wonderful experience. Kay treated us like family and we felt home while we stayed there the three nights. The motel is very clean and well kept. We plan on staying there the next time.

Room Tip: We stayed in 201 but all the rooms appeared great.

We stayed here for the night after having a blowout on the interstate. Found it through Tripadvisor too. Nice place with very large rooms. Don't get too excited if the room air conditioner blows warm air when you first turn it on. It does get cool in a few minutes. If we ever get back this way, we will definitely stay here again!

Oh! And it's right on Route 66! Very cool!

We always stay at the Sandia Peak Inn when we visit Albuquerque. The owner, Kay, is one of the kindest, most gracious people I have ever met. The motel is spotless and a great value. The already wonderful motel has been upgraded with new concrete walkways, new carpet and flat screen TVs. The free breakfast is very good. The motel is very close to Old Town and Museums. I don't know why you would spend more money or stay anywhere else. We will stay there again during our next vacation to New Mexico.

The host is very nice , the bullet proof glass a bit off putting on your arrival but certainly there for her protection....and she seems like she's a work horse.
The good points , the room and bed are quite nice the soaps and stuff nice too. TV is wall mounted and out of the way...but.....you are right on central ave...and at least my room was never quiet... whether it was the fire station and their lifesaving runs at all hours or the motorcycles and loud cars on central ave... It was tough to get to sleep before 12 am.

Yes it's a deal for the location (a bit on the iffy side) but safe enough..
bring earplugs.

Room Tip: watch balloons drift over your room early in the morning. (if the wind is blowing the right way)
