Extremely clean and well cared for vintage motel. If you are on a Route 66 road trip and want to experience the good old days be sure to stay here. Excellent location a short walk to Old Town Albuquerque and Botanical Gardens. Very friendly and helpful owners to assist you. Best place we stayed at on our road trip.

Wonderfully clean and comfortable room and property. Very pretty room with lots of special touches. A must stop for Route 66 fans when in Albuquerque! Very near to Old Town and lots of restaurants, history, shopping and entertainment!

Motel was very, very clean. Room was very spacious and felt like home. Walking distance to Old Town Albuquerque. Owners were friendly and very helpful with directions and information on places to eat. I would defiently return here if in Albuquerque again.

Room Tip: Room 102 was very large.

Arrived late, left early. Clean, compact room with bulky furniture in older road side motel. Convenient for quirky old town and fast food. A more modern place which includes breakfast would be better value.

Stayed here on a road trip across Route 66, and I'm so happy we did! The owners were so nice, gave us lots of ideas for things to do during the day we were there. It's within walking distance of Old Town, which was convenient for grabbing some native food. The room was very clean, and we didn't have any problems with noise. Highly recommend for anyone passing through Albuquerque.

This was the best of the best budget Route 66 motels we stayed in on our road trip. We stayed for two nights and Henry was delightful. The room was super clean. We were able to do laundry. The pool wasn't open so can't comment on that. Within walking distance of Old Town and Henry recommended a couple of super eateries. Don't miss this great deal, budget gem!
