“Good Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Spent two nights visiting Albuquerque . Needed pet friendly hotel and this fit the bill!
Clean room with sofa and large upholstered chair plus desk and chair fridge and microwave. Very convenient to Old Town, walking distance, and museums. Breakfast was varied and good. Service was outstanding including restaurant recommendations.

We are from Iowa and were on a road trip to California, so I used tripadvisor to find motels along the way. After seeing all the good reviews about this place we decided to stay here and were happy with our choice. The owners are very helpful and friendly. They had a large variety of food choices for their breakfast, even had fresh strawberries! We did have a bit of trouble finding it. I liked being able to park right in front of the room that has an outside entrance, makes bringing luggage in and out easier too. There were some things that needed updating in the room, but they are working on remodeling more as they get the time.

Stayed here while attending a conference at the Hotel Albuquerque (10 minute walk from Econolodge Old Town). Requested a clean and quiet non-smoking room and that is what I got. Very pleased with room amenities, microwave, fridge, alarm clock (which showed the correct time). Hosts were very helpful and offered information to make my stay in Albuquerque an enjoyable one. Location is an excellent base for exploring Albuquerque Old Town.

We've never seen hotel managers try so hard to ensure that all is well with their guests. Excellent, tasty hot breakfast that varied from day to day. Clean rooms, pleasant & helpful staff. Easily the best Econolodge we've ever stayed at. New owners are trying hard to overcome the previous owners' reputation, and they are succeeding. We enjoyed the week we stayed there so much, we give it our highest recommendation.

Room Tip: Rooms on second floor far from the street are quietest.

We stopped here for one night...wanted to be near Old Town but not pay those exorbitant prices so I read the reviews of this place..and decided to give it a chance. OMG this place was wonderful..so pleasant. The bed was comfy..the room so clean..the owners so polite and customer accommodating. ..and the breakfast went beyond our expectations...eggs, bacon, sausage, bagels, waffles, cereal, cookies, fruit, oatmeal...etc.etc.. It was a pleasant experience..I recommend this place and we will be back.

Stayed two nights here and would not hesitate to stay again. Walking distance to Old Town Albuquerque and good restaurants. A good hot breakfast, clean rooms, wifi and friendly helpful service. What more can one ask for?

I just stayed at this hotel for 5 days. The owner/manager of the hotel are incredible nice people. They went out of the way to get the messed up booking right and were really always available to help. Whenever I needed a lift to the train station or conference hotel or because no taxi came - they would drive me or pick me up. Most genuinely gentle people!!!
Rooms were average, clean and had all that is needed. It is not a fancy hotel but the warmth the manager spreads makes it a very comfortable stay!

Room Tip: 2nd Floor rooms are safer!
