Sandia Peak Inn Motel
Ranked #7 of 144 Hotels in Albuquerque
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Like others I found this reasonably priced motel on Trip Advisor. It is a pretty good Route 66 stopover and an ideal location from which to explore Albuquerque - easy access to downtown and to all local amenities. The owner seemed pleasant and friendly and our room was clean and quiet. Breakfast included a variety of fruits, much to my wife's satisfaction. The only downside was no wifi available in the room - when raised with the owner she wanted to upgrade us to a room with wifi for an extra $5 each. Given the small cost it would have been nice if the owner had waived this and moved us nonetheless but alas she saw fit not to. Otherwise, we were happy with our stay here.

What a great stay or should I say visit we had. We were welcomed & treated like family throughout our stay. For example, a buddy & I were in Albuquerque for a Model Sailboat Regatta at nearby Tingley Beach, loaded down with large boxes of equipment. When Kay, the manager, became aware of how crowded the equipment made us, she offered us the use of the unoccupied adjoining unit to store & have easy access to our equipment - at no charge! For five days we had two units for the price of one! In spite of our needs, the rooms are spacious, clean & well maintained. The rooms reflect the southwest motif nicely. Beds & pillows were very comfortable. The breakfast room was spotless & offered a variety of fresh fruit, cereals, yogurt & juices. Of course Kay is there every morning to greet her guests & to make sure nothing is left incomplete, she even makes waffles for her guests! While we were there Kay had the motel's internet service upgraded, although there were no internet problems while we were there. I believe the Sandia Peak Inn should be rated the #1 small sized motel in Albuquerque! We have already made reservations for our return next year for the next regatta. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. If you plan to stay at the Sandia Peak Inn - be prepared to be spoiled.

Room Tip: Call Kay direct for reservations for a lower rate

We found this motel on our trip of Route 66, we had gotten to Albuquerque quite late and we were just looking for a place to spend one night. My partner saw it just by chance and we were meant to stay one day, however we stayed for four! The amenities and breakfast were excellent, and the owner was lovely. We would definitely recommend this place to other travellers, as it is wonderful value for money.

Found this motel on trip advisor and thought of trying it out with my buddy as we were to start the trip of Southwest US.
Clean and spacious rooms, excellent amenities, good complementary AM breakfast (more selection of food compared to standard generic name motels).
The aforementioned things are expected from any place that we pay money to stay in, but what makes it 5 star rating is the customer service.
Kay is an example of an immigrant woman single handedly building this successful motel from a scratch. I am truly inspired by her story and her hard work she has been putting in this motel from the past decade. She absolutely makes sure that we all are comfortable and all our needs are met.
Not just her but other staff is also very courteous and helpful.
If I were to go to ABQ again, I am definitely staying here, no questions asked.
There is no doubt by the end of this passage that I highly recommend this motel.

We stopped off at the Sandia Peak Motel a we ventured across Route 66 on our honeymoon. I had gone on the dozens of positive reviews I had seen on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. The manager, Kay, was absolutely fantastic - when she found out we were from Ireland and on our honeymoon she did us a deal on an executive room. The rooms were beautiful, especially for a motel , and Kay made us feel really, really welcome.

We were sad that it was only an overnight stay as Albuquerque seemed to have loads to offer and it is definitely on our To Do list for our next roadtrip.

This is one of the best all around values we have experienced. Kay is such an accomodating, cheerful, and hard-working host. Our suite was very clean, spacious, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfast is also good. Everything is so well maintained! This is where we will stay if in the area again.

We had heard great things about this motel from friends, ad we were not disappointed! Great motel that reminds us of the pre-chain era of Mom and Pop establishments. We had originally booked a standard room, but asked to see any "special" rooms. We ended up staying in the honeymoon suite (at least it could easily do duty as a honeymoon suite); with a hottub in the room. Very large and comfortable room, very clean and well maintained. Very friendly staff, and we felt right at home. We had a very busy weekend in Albuquerque, with breakfast with friends both mornings, so we did not have the chance to try the motel breakfast. Motel is conveniently located on Central Ave (Old Rt 66), only minutes away from any location on Central, and close to Old Town and Tingley Beach. Definitely would stay here again!
