Reviewed 13 February 2008

I stayed at the Downtown Econo-Lodge and was very happy with the experience. The room was very clean and all the front desk people were exceptionally nice. It was a great value and within walking distance of the convention center, train station, many restaurants and bus stops. I would highly recommend this motel to anyone looking to go to Albuquerque but not wanting to pay for Hyatt priced hotel rates. They also had a computer in the lobby with high speed internet, which I found to be a nice amenity.

For $44, it's a good choice for sleeping at Albuquerque, near the I25, before going to santa Fe or the east.
On Central avenue ( ex route 66) near the famous 66 Diner, famous for the look but the hamburgers are well, not more.
No noise, wifi works well, no surprise.

I didn't even stay here and they charged my credit card. I cancelled my reservation two months in advance, yet they still charged me and tell me I am a liar---that I never cancelled. They stole my money. STAY AWAY!!!!!

not a good experience. When check in ,they will ask you whether you agree to be charged all at once. Don't agree,or it is not easy to leave earlier if you want.
Make sure you get your receipt when you leave. They won't fax to the receipt to you automaticly until you call them several times and provide some unneccessary information.
Sorry for so many bad words. Actually most of the guys there are very kinds except a middle aged woman.

Great location just off of I-25. Price was great! Very clean room. The room appeared recently updated. The air conditioner was easy to control and it cycled on and off so as not to give off a continuous blast of cool air. I did not eat the breakfast offered, though, as I went to another restaurant for breakfast.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during early September 2004.

We booked online at the Econolodge website, and received the Internet Users Rate (approx 10% off standard rack rate). On checking in at the hotel, the reception staff initially refused to honor the rate as we did not hold a coupon that matched the discounted rate in the system. After having to explain the who online booking system with the staff member, they then accepted our discounted reservation.

The exterior of the hotel looks suit tidy and our room was spacious and comfortable with a "fresh" feeling (it appeared to be recently updated). There is a small swimming pool on-site.

The hotel provided a select but good breakfast of bagels, donuts, toast, cereals, juice and coffee. There are not many dining options nearby.

Downtown Albuquerque is a small walk away, but the Old Town area is quite a hike. There is a bus stop next to the hotel which can ferry you around town.

All in all, its a good place to rest your head at the right price, but does not offer a lot of facilities.
