“Great Location Great price The place to stay on Route 66”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

This is a great Hotel, it takes you back to when Route 66 was the road to travel and it has that old time feel. You don't get a hair dryer or coffee in your room because in those days it just wasn't that way. The rooms are large and full of light, the location is great because UNM is close by and so is anything else you may want to do or see. Shopping is great in Nob Hill and Old town is a short distance and is really cool with all the Indian merchants and tourist sites. George and Family offer a nice quite area away from Central so you don't hear the revelers at night. The Korean BBQ is a local favorite and should not be missed.

Room Tip: Room on the first floor are the best. No noise, good beds, nice and clean. NO morning coffee in roo...

We liked the location and old fashioned amenities such as examining the room before signing up for the night. We got a little history of who stays in the only king-sized bedroom they have and liked the friendly innkeeper. We would return to stay here again even though there is no hair dryer

Stayed one night. Would be great for a short stay or a stop-over as it is right in the middle of bars and shopping in ABQ. Rooms were clean and had working wi-fi. Paid a little more than we would have liked but it saved us having to ride a taxi to the bars, etc.

Room Tip: Try for a second floor room as the ground floor room windows at the back didn't have strong secu...

Decent room, excellent wifi, good location, awesome staff, old Route 66 motel, nuff said, why do these reviews have to be 200 characters? Walked to dinner and bars on central avenue, took a hungover dip in the pool on the morning, cured my headache.

The main problem was the a/c didn't not cool, only moved air around a little. In the fall or spring, that probably wouldn't be a problem. We walked next door to Kelly's Brewery (really great find!) and thought the room would cool down by the time we got back - wrong. Too tired to look for another hotel we stayed. Owner's dog was tied up and barked a little during the day but didn't see it after dark. Bedding seems pretty worn, could use some updating.

Room Tip: Check out the room (water, a/c. bedding, TV) before renting.

Stayed a couple nights with a girl friend. First room we were put in had a few bugs crawling around the bathroom and some noise was very noticeable sort of like running water or a fan running somewhere. We asked to move to a quieter room and they obliged. The second night we stayed right out the back windows was a college party at a house only about 20 feet behind the motel that went on til 3 or 4 in the AM. Beds actually felt firm and OK but I was very afraid of catching bugs in this place. Oh yeah and there was only water pressure with cold. As soon as you tried to use hot - I mean warm - the pressure went to a trickle. Will never stay at this place again. Several people actually appear to be living in many of the rooms too.

I checked in for 2 weeks and am actually here now as Im writing this. When I first checked in, the old lady in the front office, Olivia said she had a "real nice" room for me, like I was special. Come to find out, the TV got one channel. Room service is once a week for weekly tenents. The best thing I can say is the Location is alright and the price was decent BUT not only is the old lady at the front desk nosey and snoops into rooms while the tenants are away (Ive watched her going through personal belongings when she didnt know I was watching) but her two Alcoholic sons live there as well and party ALL night while entertaining their friends. The daughter also lives there. All in the Family. Oh and one of the sons keeps his dog running freely about the place. I wasnt comfortable walking around while the dog was growling on my back side. The shower and toilet drains hardly work at all. Make sure you bring the gallon jug of Bleach. There seem to be several upset drunks living there, screaming profanities at imaginary people. The prices did seem to change depending on if your a man or woman, single or married. My old drug dealer stayed here and recommended it to me. The rooms do offer a Microwave and Refrigerator. Oh and the local phone calls are included and there is Cable TV. The internet connection DID actually work well. Ok for singles who like to care less but if your halfway respectable with a wife and husband and kids, do yourself a favor and DON'T STAY THERE. Its a wee bit embarrasing and smells a bit old in the rooms. Other than that, it totally rocks....NOT.

Room Tip: Don't stay at the HiWay House.
