I booked the "suite" because I needed a soaking tub for this stay. I am average height and weight (5' 4" 145 lbs) for a female and the tub was tight for me so anyone larger may want to reconsider if this is important to them. The location can't be beat for being close to Old Town. There is an...

Dear Tracey, Thank you for your comments and feedback. We are so glad our Old Town location was perfect for your visit. There is so much to see and do in Old Town, especially around the holidays.

Had a major issue checking in with an hour spent in the lobby waiting to and then finally getting our room. 6 pm on a Saturday night, 3 families waiting to check in and only one inexperienced clerk who had to keep calling her manager on the phone for help. The room itself was clean and neat but the refrigerator...

Dear Billy, Please accept my apologies for the long wait time during your check-in and your uncomfortable night as our guest. There is nothing worse than having to wait after a long drive, only to have your room not as cozy as you had hoped. We will work hard to improve and we hope you will give us another opportunity...

Great breakfast, clean, comfy big bed. Would definitely stay again if something can be done about the new (?) thermostats. They have a BRILLIANT light that illuminates the entire room. Could not find any way to turn it off or even dim it, even though we were told you can dim. Covered it with towels and it still shines brightly...

Great stay at a great price. The breakfast was above and beyond the norm for a room at this price point. My room was very clean. The parking area well lit and safe. Very close to old town and within walking distance of many restaurants.

Just stayed one night, but the location of this hotel allowed us to walk to Old Town, Albuquerque Museum and Museum of Natural History and Science. Great location! Central Ave was being torn up and construction all over the place but not too difficult to get in and out of. All the better that we could walk.

EconoLodge Old Town is on old Route 66, but it shares nothing with its neon cousins on the highway. The rooms have been updated (hardwood floors, lots of electrical outlets, high-tech thermostats), the towels are nice, and the wifi works well). The parking lot is small, and was full to overflowing on Saturday night, but the motel management and staff...

This motel was not only our favorite, but also the least expensive, of all the places we stayed at during our 2-month cross-country road trip. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is great, near I-40 and next to Old Town Albuquerque, allowing us to walk to or have a few-mile drive to places we visited. The motel even...
