A wonderful place to stay. Fast check in....great beds and pillows. Very clean and smelled pleasant. Well insulated, did not hear other guests. The mini kerig in the room is a nice touch. Easy high speed cable connection at desk with power outlets. Lots of parking. The room hostess (Cynthia) left this little suprise to greet us.

This hotel is in a good location near Old Town, has a good breakfast, nice servers. Christine L was particularly efficient and anxious to please. This is near the highway, but that did not pose a problem.

A relaxing stay before our art show. Professional staff, clean room, taste hot food, and a secure parking area. Great food services by Christine L. at complimentary breakfast and front desk service by Lorenza. They give a personal home front New Mexico style of "mi casa, es tu casa", "my house is your house" feel.

Clean, affordable, friendly staff, 5 min drive to Old Town and centrally located to get to other attractions in ABQ. Yes there's fancier places in town but if you're only staying a few nights save your money for sightseeing or the many good restaurants to be found in town.

We went to look at Albuquerque as a possible place to move when we leave Ca. Planned to stay 2 nights & extended twice for a total of 4 nights. Excellent facility and the staff was great, especially Jeff who served us dinner 2 night in the hotel restaurant, & Christine L. who served us breakfast. Great people.
