Passing through Albuquerque needing a safe hotel near I-40

In a couple weeks I will be moving from Virginia to Southern Utah and one of the nights will be needing to stay the night in Albuquerque. I will be driving a 26 foot penske (the biggest they offer) with an old muscle car on a trailer behind. I need to find a hotel that 1. I can fairly easily access from I-40 and park my Penske and trailer, 2. a hotel that will be safe so that I dont come out in the morning to find my classic car was stripped while I slept. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I am thinking about this - the car in the trailer concerns me. Off the cuff - the places that will be right off I-40 and most convenient aren't in the best areas. I'll be back....

OK, so far - Hotel Cascada has a parking garage but I don't know if it will take the height of the truck. I have found a few places with garages, but they have 6'8" height restrictions.

Isleta Casino and Resort has outdoor, RV parking that has a guard on duty:

OK - how does this sound? Across the street from the airport on Yale Blvd, there are a few long term parking lots. When we picked up our car the other night, I noticed that there seemed to be some larger vehicles that were parked there - maybe stored for a while or just while the owners were on a trip.

You could park the truck and trailer there - they are gated and guarded. There are several hotels, motels within walking distance. There is a Sheraton right across the street and others within a short walk. They might even drive you on shuttle.

I40 is generally not safe. Isleta is pretty far south. You could easily do Embassy suites off of I25 which is closer to I40. On I40 at Rio grande hotel Albuquerque has a huge lot and the Rio Grande inn is across the street. I believe Rio grande inn is a best western. I'd stay away from Tramway/central and Coors/I40 area
