I often have allergic reactions to motels, most likely from dirty a/c or heaters. I figured a non-smoker motel might indicate a sensitivity to allergy sufferers. The heating was the baseboard set-up, so no air is blowing. It was definitely clean by my standards! It is one story, but the windows do open! And even the bathroom has a window, but I didn't see a fan to run while showering.
Also, it was convenient to tourist attractions; you can walk to the Aquarium and Old Town and several museums.
You can check email in the lobby. There is no breakfast. The ice machine room has one soda machine, but rooms have fridges, so you can keep your own food. In March, not a busy time, the area was quiet at night.

Stayed: March 2006

My wife and I have stayed at the Monterey a number of times over the past ten years. We have found Henry and his wife to be very hospitable and eager to please their guests. (I trust the individual who speculated there had been a change in ownership is mistaken, because these fine folks have made the Monterey something very special). This is without a doubt the best motel value in Albuquerque and one of our favorite motels anywhere.

We will return to the Monterey No Smokers Motel because of the great location, cleanliness, bargain price and the very personal attention of the two owners. The decor is quirky but homey--makes you feel like you're staying with a great aunt.

We have stayed at this motel a few times in past years & had been reasonably pleased. It has apparently been remodeled recently, and it may be under new ownership. I say "may" because when I called for information today I was greeted with: "What you want?" & "How did you find out about us?" The person I spoke with (sounded like an adult male) seemed reluctant to identify himself (I had already stated where I was calling from and that I was interested in a room)--and was upset that I had the temerity to request info using their toll-free # (which was posted on their website). It appears that more than the motel could use some remodeling. I told him I would be searching elsewhere.

We were looking for a nice clean & basic hotel for a good price. We came across this motel and were pleasantly surprised. It was very clean and comfortable with nicely decorated rooms. Refridgerators in the rooms were very nice. A great price, close to Old Town, and very soft & comfortable beds. Would stay there again without hesitation.
