Motel 6 Albuquerque North
Ranked #101 of 144 Hotels in Albuquerque
Reviewed 28 March 2012

I really have trouble believing that I am giving a positive review of a Motel 6... but this place was really nice... I would never have stayed here if it wasn't a government sponsored trip that I didn't plan myself but now I would recommend it to anyone. The staff was very nice for a Motel 6 and the building was in great shape, clean and had bright attractive colouring to it. The only bad thing was that the shower head was broken so the stream wouldn't adjust but other than that it was a great place to stay.

One of the nicest Motel 6's we've stayed at! Very clean, newly refreshed. We stay on the top floor, to avoid overhead noise.
The evening manager was very friendly and helpful!
The bed was comfy, heat worked well, and the $2.99 per day wi-fi worked very well.
I would definitely recommend this one for a few nights! We stayed 2 nights, very good value!
Oh, but they too have those small, thin towels Motel 6 is known for. :( The only real drawback.

Room Tip: Top floor, less noise from others!

You get so much more than you pay for with this hotel. True, it's a motel 6, so you're looking at a small basic room and paying for separately for internet, however this place is clean, modern looking, has nice non-carpeted floors, and looks brand new all around. Plus it's PET-FRIENDLY! And dogs stay for free, which is something we're always looking for. And this place is CHEAP!!! It's a nice looking, clean place to stay that costs less than $50. Can't get better than that! This is our go-to place in ABQ.

the appearance of the room was nicer than older motel 6s- very clean and modern looking. but because the room and hallway floors are wood, they can be loud. and i was put in a room with an adjoining door, which is always terrible for noise conduction.
great location for the ballon festival. of course they double the room price during the festival.

Just got back from a 4 night stay at this motel during the first weekend of the Balloon Fiesta.
I booked a room here because of the location close to the Balloon Fiesta field and because the cost was considerably less than other area hotels. I was pleasantly surprised by how clean and fresh it was. We had room 221 and there was plenty of space for our family of four. Loved the parquet style floors, the beds were very comfy, though they are fulls not queens. Bathroom was spotless, A/C worked great, elevator worked great. I asked for extra pillows and blankets, which were given to me straight away with a smile. The ladies at reception were extremely helpful, even offering to recharge a cell phone for another gentleman who had forgotten to pack his charger. The pool was sparkly clean with pool loungers for relaxing. Regular and decaf coffee were available all day long. No breakfast is offered but we found several places near us that offer an excellent breakfast - Weck's was our favourite, and a 3 - 5 minute drive from the motel.
The view from the motel of the balloons going up in the morning was just wonderful! We all had a great time - wish we could have stayed a little longer!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the mountains if you like peace and quiet.

Bring your own pillows(one each otherwise) but this no carpet, clean new fresh decor was just the ticket for us. Coffee is downstairs in the morning. Inexpensive price.. A/C worked great. one side table but you can use one of the 2 chairs for it. We had our own breakfast so sat and ate that at little table with 2 chairs. BAthroom was clean and new. I was told Motel 8s got renovated this year according to their level of revenue. This one got everything except flat screen tvs (we had a small tv).

This is probably the best motel 6 I have stayed at. The rooms are small but comftorable and well painted, there is a large pool at the back.
