Couldn't find anything about the hotel that was better than average. The room seemed clean until I looked at the shower head. Some kind of pink mold or something growing on it. And the electric outlet next to the sink didn't work. The hair dryer was plugged into the outlet but did not work, so I plugged in my phone charger and my pc charger, neither of which got any juice.
The breakfast looked good, but the scrambled eggs, sausage, and biscuts & gravy were just barely warm, certainly not hot. With no microwave in sight, I asked the staff member who was restocking the area about the cold food. He offered to take it to the back to heat it up. I was just about ready to go to the nearby Village Inn for breakfast when he returned with my warmed up food. It was a nice layout, but in addition to not liking cold eggs, sausage, etc; I have some food safety concerns about their "hot" breakfast offering.
On the bright side, the bed was comfortable and the wifi was pretty good. The guest laundry consists of one washer and one dryer crammed into a small room with a bunch of exercise equipment, which I assume they either call a storage room or an exercise room. The W&D were both maxed out at 8 quarters.
Also on the bright side, they are running a special (thru Sept 30 I think) called the Boomer Special. If you're a baby boomer, your rate is the two-digit year of your birth. So if you were born in 1951 your rate would be $51.
Overall it's an average hotel with a few problems that could be easily fixed. When I go back to ABQ in a few months I may book my room there just to see if problems persist. If you can get a really good rate it might be worth a visit. But if you have to pay the full rack rate, go somewhere else.
