“What a great find!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Stopped on our way to CO for Thanksgiving. We slept well, beds are excellent. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise. Not your usual motel continental breakfast. They do a great job! Bacon, sausage, eggs, biscuits and all kinds of pastries. These aren't wrapped in plastic pastries, these are the real thing from a French bakery. My almond croissant was to die for. Couple of blocks from Old Town. Wish we could stay longer and explore Old Town. We will be back!

I spent 2 nights on my way west from Toronto to California. The husband and wife team of Elena and Johnny were very attentive and offered good advice on places to eat and other tidbits of info. Breakfast was fine and John was always fussy about making sure every thing was full or replaced. Eggs, sausage and or bacon, niscuits and all the other items one would expect like cereal, bagels, jucies, coffee, fruit (available all the time when I was there) etc. My room was close to pool filter so sometimes a tad noisey but it seemed to shut down later after pool closed. Room was very clean as was bedding which I always check after a few bad ones in past. The couple were working super hard to make a good impression and I thought they did a great job especially for the very reasonable price of the roo, Fo me the best on the road so far!! A 2 block walk to Old Town and less than an hour to Santa Fe where John gave me the name of Maria's resto which had fabulous Mexican food.

This motel is located just a block or so from Old Town Albuquerque, easy walking distance. If you are not expecting a 4 or 5 star hotel this is an excellent value for the price. The room was clean with a pleasant decor. The fellow at the front desk (I think he was the owner) was so very pleasant, helpful, and accommodating. The recently added hot breakfast was also better than expected.

A delightful family -friendly, warm and make you feel like family- own and manage this motel a couple of blocks from Old Town. The husband picked me up at the airport and drove me to get a bathing suit. The couple are wonderful managers and go out of their way to make their guests happy. The indoor pool and spa were perfect temperature and clean. The hot breakfast was beyond my expectations. I would return to this home away from home.

Room Tip: Awesome value and service

We picked Econo Old Town based on the excellent rate and the fact that it was near Old Town. We had a short walk to Old Town and discovered that a filling station was right next door and Baskin Robbins a few doors down. We did not expect to meet such nice friendly owners and a wonderful breakfast the next morning. Stay here. You will not be disappointed.

This husband and wife managed motel is an incredible find. Wonderful hosts who make you feel like part of the family, great hot breakfasts, with many quality choices of foods, very comfortable beds, wifi, and great service...Toping it off, a block's walk from Old Town Albuquerque. 2 nights here, and my bones are ready to meet any challenge on the road!!!

Room Tip: All good, but upstairs may be a bit quieter from the street

My wife and I were visiting the U.S.from the U.K. on a mini road trip taking in Arizona and New Mexico as Albuquerque was our last stop east -so to speak-we were looking for somewhere to stay near the old town and after looking at various places and reviews decided on this Econo Lodge for two nights in October.,I am glad we did.There is not much more to add as previous reviews have said it all - Great, friendly, helpful people run it - good and plentiful breakfast - large clean rooms - overall a smashing place to stay and if we ever get the chance to visit this area again we will have no hesitation in booking into the Econo Lodge Old Town - providing they are not fully booked after all these positive reviews.Keep up the good work.
