As usual, we enjoyed our stay at the motel. Quick & efficient check-in. Always love seeing Victor, the owners little dog. Clean, comfortable rooms at a fair price. Have been staying here for many years.

The lady on reception (and her husband) are passionate about hospitality. We could have chatted to her for hours! She gave us loads of advice about places to visit in Albuquerque. However, it was difficult to drag ourselves away from the wonderful pool - we enjoyed it for a couple of hours all to ourselves! The room was clean and the location is great. One of the best motels on Route 66.

Stayed 1 night in room 11.
Located within good walking distance to old town, felt very safe.
Rooms were dated and could definitely do with a facelift but the sheets and towels were new, clean and good quality.
Owner was very helpful.
Slightly weirded out by a coffee machine in the bathroom, but overall, met expectations given the price and a made for a good Route 66 experience.

Very economical, we stayed here for 3 nights for the bargain price of $75/d. Very clean, spacious room, ample parking right in front and a chatty helpful proprietrix. We used the laundry (dryers are not very efficient and took 2 spins for a load) but not the pool, etc. Ideal as a basecamp to tour oldtown ABQ & surroundings

I really like this motel. AAA rating which is important to me. The rate is great and the owner is very nice, and is very accommodating in giving information as to where restaurant's, etc. are located. It's very clean and and the bedding is nice, lots of pillows. I think this motel is a really good value, it just looks like the owner really tries to make things nice. I would stay again.

I have stayed at quite a few old Route 66 motor-hotels over the years, and this one is easily the best one so far! Yes, outside of the neon, the appearance can seem more run-down than nostalgic, but the rooms were clean, comfortable, quiet, modern, well-appointed, spacious... everything you could hope for, even cookies! The coffee in the room was even pretty darn good too! The owner was especially helpful with printing boarding passes, arranging a taxi, etc. We have stayed in many places not nearly as nice for much more money. We will definitely be back!

We found the hotel through the internet. This was our first visit to Albuquerque and we looked forward to the idea of staying at a motel on 'Historic Route 66', a stone's throw away from 'Old Town'.
Upon arrival we were a bit concerned by the look of the place. From the outside the building seems a bit oudated, but we were more than pleasantly surprised when we entered the room, as it was amazingly spacious and impeccably clean.
The decor is outdated, or can be considered vintage, but everything's neat and comfy.
The bathroom has the best nice, soft & clean towels and the beds have beautifully patterned sheets, great matresses & nice pillows, including extras if needed.
You get the comfort of making your own coffee or tea, with the use of the in-room coffee maker. You also have a small fridge, plus extra free supplies for making hot drinks in the laundry room.
A small library has a soft drinks dispenser and an ice machine.
Visitors are allowed to pick up magazines, books, maps and tourist information left by previous guests.
The motel is conveniently located & you have shopping centres near by.
The owners are friendly and pleasant and are always willing to give directions or tips about the town and surrounding tourist sites.
The price is fair & we definitely got our money's worth.
In summer thre's a small swimming pool, mainly for kids.

Room Tip: Remember, the motel's located on 'Route 66', otherwise known as Central Ave. SW., theref...
