My husband and I stayed one night at the Nativo Lodge, selecting it for the location close to where we needed to be in Albuquerque and for the reviews on TripAdvisor. Our stay was disappointing. The lobby area is lovely and beautifully decorated -- but we weren't spending the night in the lobby. The "luxurious linens" included a fitted sheet on the king size bed that was much too shallow for the deep mattress, and we battled it all night as it kept slipping off. The pillows were stuffed into too-small pillowcases. We tried to have breakfast in the on-site restaurant, and the service and food were pathetic. It was not crowded, but we waited over 10 minutes after being seated for any attention -- coffee, water, a smile, anything. The buffet was not set up, at 8:30 a.m., but was heavily pushed by the waiter as "just a short wait until it's ready". We ordered off the menu, but our food was clearly from the buffet anyway - a lukewarm breakfast burrito with steamtable scrambled eggs and bacon, none of the garnishes mentioned on the menu. Coffee was refilled only when my husband went to the waitstation and got the pot. We expressed our disappointment as we checked out about all of these items and got the standard shrug and "sorry about that" from the front desk. We will most certainly stay at another one of the many hotels in the area next time.
