“Great location.. Excellent Motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

It was our first time in Albuquerque and we had a bit of hard time locating the place (it was late night) . The hotel staff helped us a lot when I called and check in was smooth.

The rooms are standard, everything is super clean and we had no complaints.. It is real close to the old town area; just couple of blocks away..

The only thing to note is that the place goes dead in the late evenings. Most of the Restaurants, bars/Pubs etc are in the main town which is a few minutes of driving 9/or a good 20 minutes of walk..

Room Tip: Don;t miss the downtown festivities on weekends.. they shut down the main street so that people can...

Decided to stay at this hotel based on reviews and being a member of the rewards program. What a pleasant stay. Having the refrigerator and microwave allowed me to not struggle to find some place to eat after a long day. The breakfast was wonderful and the owners are attentive. It was fairly close to our business and that was a plus.The only downside was the lack of quality restaurants nearby but since this was a business trip, this was not a problem. If you want the "touristy" things, Old Town is close.

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: All the rooms are good but there is no elevator so if you can't handle stairs, choose the first...

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.
