Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great location within walking distance of Old Town. Incredibly polite staff. Well maintained and very clean. Although the swimming pool and hot tub are outdoors, they were enclosed in an inflatable bubble so they could be used in winter. A very satisfying experience.

The hotel is located very close to the historic part of Albuquerque. The facility is in very good up-to-date shape and the staff is top notch. Parking is very secure with a lot of space. Highly recommend.

Convenient to Highway 40 and St Clair restaurant nearby is very good. Facilities good., breakfast average. They do take pets with a $20 fee. Reasonable room rate. Could use some updating and remoberling.

For $105 for a room for 2 people for one night, I would expect a blanket somewhere in the room on a cold, snowy, winter night. No such luck here. My husband and I live in ABQ, but were attending a dance across the street and stayed here so we wouldn't have to drive across town after drinking. We didn't...

Moving from Dallas to Albuquerque, Rio Grande Inn was my first choice. Comfortable rooms, an excellent breakfast and close to I-40. Near Old town, museums, and historic route 66. After driving for 10 hours, was able to relax and get a good nights sleep.

This is our second stay at the Best Western Rio Grande Inn. It conveniently located in Old Town Albuquerque. It was a very enjoyable stay, the price was good, the staff very courteous and accommodating. We would surely stay there again when passing through this area.
