“Lovely stay”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We stayed here for one night during our Route 66 road trip. It is conveniently located on Route 66 which is a definite bonus.

It was a lovely motel which had everything that we needed. We had a room with two double beds so it was a decent size for us. The pool was nice and they provided pool towels for guests use, we were the only ones using it which was good.

We were provided with a map of the area when we checked in and were told where the Old Town was and provided with recommendations of places to eat which we found helpful.

We believe that the hotel was definite value for money and we would stay here again if ever in the area.

We discovered this place 20 years ago and will not stay anywhere else when visiting the Duke City. Henry and Bo run a tight ship, and they do it with pride. The place is immaculate. We love the Route 66 charm and the proximity to Old Town. Our travel plans would only allow us to stay one night, but we'd have stayed longer if we could. We highly recommend this motel and always enjoy our stays there.

An old Route 66 motel, well kept and spotlessly clean. Has amenities many of the vintage motels do not, like ice and a guest laundry. Convenient to Old Town and a plethora of restaurants. No breakfast, but coffee, tea, and cookies were left in the room for us. Located right on a busy highway, but we were never bothered by the noise. Definitely recommend.

A great place to stay! Completely renovated, updated, clean Route 66 motel....owned by an Eastern European couple, impeccably maintained. They are eager to accommodate, easy to talk to. A full-size pool is clean and inviting. Full-service laundry machines are readily available. This motel is easy walking distance to Old Town Albuquerque. Plenty of restaurants and shopping there. We have stayed here often, the ONLY place we ever stay in Albuquerque! My most recent stay was because of an emergency medical situation--the owners were happy to oblige, kept the room for me on an extended basis, cared about the patient's progress, made sure I was safe in the room each night, checked on me often.

Room Tip: Room 9 is the back corner, across from the pool..one bed...quietest room there

We are traveling from Chicago to LA via Route 66 and wanted to stay in hotels originally built for The Mother Road. This one came highly recommended so we decided to give it a try. Gustav was very firm that rooms were for non-smokers, no pets were permitted and swimmers must wear shoes when walking to the pool. This all sounded very reasonable to us. We stayed in room 15 and were able to park in front of our door. The room had received updates which made for a pleasant stay. The room included digital TV, refrigerator, coffee maker, hair dryer, iron and board, wifi and a writing desk. We really enjoyed the well kept swimming pool. We would definitely stay here again!

When bragging about the motel to the owner, Henry, he said "thank you, it's my 'baby'." You can tell. The room were IMMACULATE and the grounds were more than clean... They were "loved". Just a quick walk to Old Town. It was a highlight of our Rt. 66 trip.

Room Tip: Request a room off the road.

Henry the owner welcomed us in true old school friendly helpful style. The rooms are large and well equipped. Really luxury compared to others. This is a place to stay and within a short walk to the old town and good restaurants / cafes, etc
