The hotel website photos are very accurate. Lobby area is really interesting and has a lot of southwest Native American ambiance, but a little dark. The front desk is like a cave.
Location is near some major roads/highways, making the location convenient to downtown/old town (10 min. drive) and the Sandia Peak Tramway, but noisy. The weather was comfortable enough for us not to need the air conditioner, and the balcony with mountain view was nice, but the road noise appears to be significant no matter what room you select. We used the air conditioner mainly to drown out traffic for sleeping purposes.
Room was immaculate with tasteful, somewhat sparse decor. A stark contrast to such a dramatic main lobby.No microwave or fridge in room, although there was plenty of room for one. T.V. was old tube set, with ok picture, but not a lot of channels. King bed was heavily padded, but too soft/saggy as others have mentioned. No problems with loud music from night club as we did not stay on a Thursday or Saturday night.
Biggest disappointment was that there was no "complimentary breakfast buffet" as advertised on the hotel's website. This can easily be up to a $20 per night additional expense/value for any couple. Fortunately, we got a great bogo website offer. Starbucks next to hotel, as well as several restaurants, stores, etc. Nativo Lodge, Please Change your Website regarding the complimentary Buffet Breakfast! False advertising.
Overall, a decent stay.
