The Studio 6 in Albuquerque falls far short of what you should expect from a brand-name motel. This motel caters to long term guests. Housekeeping is supposed to be twice a week. However, there were problems scheduling housekeeping. I was lucky to have someone come by once a week.
At checkin, I looked at three rooms before I found one in acceptable condition. Even this one had funky marks in the tub from a bathmat that had been torn out. The refrigerators in the rooms were cheap and very noisy. The single queen room was smaller than the average motel room, and was cramped because a kitchen was squeezed into this space.
There is a written "Good Neighbor Policy" for guests, but it was not being enforced during my stay. Guests were storing and repairing unregistered vehicles on the property. One of these vehicles was parked in a space right at the bottom of a stairwell. Parking is tight and things like this just made the problem worse.
If you do stay here, be on the lookout for kids skateboarding in the parking lot at night. Also be ready for loud parties in some of the rooms most nights of the week. Expect a lot of road noise from the six-lane road and freeway. There are no sound absorbing walls around the property. There is also a billboard on the edge of the parking lot.
Overall, this is a motel to avoid. Granted, the place looks OK when you drive by, but there are problems. There are a number of hotels nearby, and those of you planning a long term stay should consider the Residence Inn or Crossland.
