“Decent Place to Stay”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

My roommate and I stopped here on the way to Flagstaff. We stayed only one night, and the hotel was completely fine. We experienced no major issues. If you're just passing through town, then this place is perfect. We got an extremely low price, and the location was excellent.

This place is very budget oriented. My bed smelled like it was already slept in for a week. Killed 4 fly's, 1 still buzzing around. Could not get fridge/microwave in room and someone put down that we were staying for 1 day, not the week...so we came back to the room after working overnight to dead key cards. Overall...pretty bad experience.

This hotel was very nice and everything went perfect. Bed and pillows are very comfortable...we called ahead while on the road to reserve the room and the staff was very helpful and it was a quick check in. Will be staying at this hotel next time!!

Clean, spacious, comfortable room. Was nice to have the microwave and fridge in room. Was about 5 miles from his training. The area is not great to check out and didn't have good views, but he just wanted something close to class. Did feel safe. The stairwell was really smelly. Definintely was good for dog lovers, although I didn't think carrying your dog in your arms and getting breakfast holding the dog was a great thing to do. Good amount of choices for breakfast. There was a leak under the bathroom sink where it appeared to be getting moldy. Cookies at the front desk in the afternoon. Close to the big I to get around Abq easily. He wouldn't have an issue staying here again, but not for romance.

Room Tip: We were on the back side, so unsure if those in front had road noise? Was off the road a bit, but th...

We always stay here when in Albuquerque with our dog. They have a great dog-walk with pick up and disposal products at hand. They usually have dog biscuits at the counter. It is a very comfortable hotel with friendly staff and a decent, if not great, breakfast. It also has a Village Inn on the property which makes it easy if you are too road weary to go out for dinner.

Room Tip: If you want the first floor, ask for a handicapped accessible room.

This hotel was not a good LaQuina experience. It was in a bad neighborhood, and the room smelled like it was smoked in even though we requested a non smoking room. The mattress was saggy and uncomfortable. The breakfast area was not set up well. The outside areas were run down, and unkept. If I were LaQuinta I would do a complete renovation, or cut this hotel from their brand. BAD hotel. The staff was very nice though, and they did the best they could with a hotel that just is too tired to meet standards.

The check in process was fast. Located next to a park that is pet friendly. This made it very easy to walk our dog. Room was older, but clean and neat. Free wi-if. Room spacious enough for four people and a dog plus all our luggage. Even got carry put pizza and ate in the room, but Denny's is located in the parking lot. Air conditioning lulled us to sleep and blocked out any outside noises (big storm). We were pleasantly surprised at the convenience of this hotel, especially since this is our first time traveling with our 75lb Labrador. The price was very reasonable! And includes free breakfast, nothing fancy, but good for being included.

Room Tip: If traveling with a dog, ask for first floor close to the park.
