Motel 6 Albuquerque North
Ranked #92 of 144 Hotels in Albuquerque
Reviewed June 2, 2012

I will start the review by saying that this is absolutely the nicest Motel 6 we've ever stayed at. It looks like a total remodel was done - the bamboo floor was great and the guest laundry machines were the best by far that we've EVER used in all our years of traveling.

Now for the rest of the review: This is the first time - ever - we've been asked to sign (with a date and time) a paper saying that if we or any guest in our room is arrested for anything, Motel 6 will make us leave and won't refund our money. Great welcome, huh? I guess they must have lots of problems, judging by most of the other clientele that we encountered in our two days here. No fridge, microwave or hairdryer. Soap only for toiletries. $3.20 a day for internet (it was fast, though). Old style TV with limited stations. Absolutely no eateries within walking distance, but plenty within a couple of miles. For $44 plus tax it's a good deal, but we wouldn't stay here again.

We stopped for a night on a road trip across the country. Cheap, clean, and nice staff. Can’t be beat.

the room was quiet, spacious and clean. the desk clerk was very nice to microwave left overs for us on a few occasions. only complaint was the shower did not drain right, leaving me ankle deep in water during a quick shower. also its located off I-25 and paseo de norte(a congested area), on a outer road.

Price was right, nice and clean, but water pipes were noicy. Motel was hard to get to from Interstate. It is actually on the one way Pan American Highway frontage road.

I really have trouble believing that I am giving a positive review of a Motel 6... but this place was really nice... I would never have stayed here if it wasn't a government sponsored trip that I didn't plan myself but now I would recommend it to anyone. The staff was very nice for a Motel 6 and the building was in great shape, clean and had bright attractive colouring to it. The only bad thing was that the shower head was broken so the stream wouldn't adjust but other than that it was a great place to stay.

One of the nicest Motel 6's we've stayed at! Very clean, newly refreshed. We stay on the top floor, to avoid overhead noise.
The evening manager was very friendly and helpful!
The bed was comfy, heat worked well, and the $2.99 per day wi-fi worked very well.
I would definitely recommend this one for a few nights! We stayed 2 nights, very good value!
Oh, but they too have those small, thin towels Motel 6 is known for. :( The only real drawback.

Room Tip: Top floor, less noise from others!

You get so much more than you pay for with this hotel. True, it's a motel 6, so you're looking at a small basic room and paying for separately for internet, however this place is clean, modern looking, has nice non-carpeted floors, and looks brand new all around. Plus it's PET-FRIENDLY! And dogs stay for free, which is something we're always looking for. And this place is CHEAP!!! It's a nice looking, clean place to stay that costs less than $50. Can't get better than that! This is our go-to place in ABQ.
