While touring New Mexico for the 4th of July and camping our way through it, it was raining when we pulled into ABQ, and we decided we wanted to support a local Route 66 Hotel/Motel. Unfortunately, most of the "Historic" hotels in the area falsely advertise their rates on the signs outside, trying to lure you in with what is actually a weekly rate by day. This hotel was no exception.
Ended up booking this on a major hotel search site, on check in the clerk complained about us using a hotel site and that we had a toddler with us. The clerk didn't even care that we were on a little Route 66 tour!
The location is excellent, right next to the junction of I-25 and I-40.
Room was cute, and bathroom were clean, the fridge was turned off so wasn't useful for a few hours. No shampoo, just a bar of soap. Towels were stained, but smelled clean.
On checkout we noticed the cleaning lady was smoking in the non smoking rooms she was cleaning. Not cool.
In the end, it would appear that trying to help save the Route 66 establishments feels a lot like trying to save the seals, they don't want to be saved!
