“Southwestern flair - great experience! Not your run-of-the-mill chain hotel.”
Reviewed 17 October 2010

My mom, my 1 year old son, and I stayed at this hotel for two nights. I have nothing to say but GREAT things about this hotel. I found it online through TripAdvisor and we were very happy with our stay! Our room had two, comfortable queen-sized beds and the room was nice and clean. It had a balcony (that faced out toward the parking lot/expressway - I think the backside had better views) so we could see when my brother arrived at the hotel to pick us up to go explore the ABQ and Santa Fe area. We loved that it had a southwestern flair to it instead of being a typical chain hotel. The lobby was well decorated, too...Native American feel with a modern, cozy feeling. The pool was an indoor/outdoor pool. We stayed in the middle of the week and happened to be there on a day when they were cleaning the pool and were told the pool was closed for the night. We were bummed that we could not use the pool (had arrived too late the night before) and had one night to use it. BUT, the friendly front desk receptionist let us know later that they opened the pool back up, and my son was able to go swimming in a big pool for the first time in his life! He was a little fish and loved, loved, loved it! There was also a small fitness room and a hot tub. There is a small outdoor area (I imagined it to be bigger, but there is no need for it to be bigger...just got that impression from photos online.) There is a teepee on the grounds outside with neat punched-tin-star type lights that made for a beautiful glow at night-time. The soaps and shampoos that were complimentary smelled great and were Native American made and smelled of refreshing sweet grass. Overall, our stay was excellent and very comfortable! Would (and probably will) stay there again! Oh, we received a military discount on room rates, too, since my husband is in the military.

We were in Albuquerque to attend the balloon fiesta. We booked two nights at the Nativo Lodge due to their web site and some reviews. We try to support native American businesses whenever we have the opportunity. The hotel was beautiful and clean. The staff were very helpful and courteous. We have two issues. The AC/Heating system was absolutely terrible. The AC system fan would not run unless the compressor was on. If the fan was not running the room became extremely stuffy and very noisy. A very courteous maintenance person came up and looked at the system and told us to run it at 65 degrees and the fan would not shut off. We ran it at that and tried 60 and the system would cycle and still shut off. When it cycled it was so loud it woke us up. As a result, we had two very restless nights. Then there was the sliding glass door. It would not close properly and seal. On our second night we had a storm blow in and the wind came through the door so hard it made the heavy curtain blow way out into the room. The wind blew through the back side of the door like an open window. Here is a suggestion if you stay here. After your sticker shock on the price of breakfast, walk over to the Starbucks for a really good and inexpensive breakfast.

We just spent one wonderful week at the Nativo Inn. The hotel is gorgeous, filled with lots of beautiful native american art & feeling. The best part of the hotel are the members of its employee team. We have never seen so many people go out of their way to be friendly & helpful. Example - When we were at their indoor/outdoor pool and could not find the ice machine, Frank, a maintenance man, went out of his way & interupted his work to get us a huge bag of ice! Its this kind of service that will make us return soon. One suggestion, the rooms are not soundproof enough......

We booked and paid in advance for our stay during Balloon Fiesta. When we arrived, we were told that they gave away our room away for the first night (we arrived at 5:00pm) which was a Saturday night, but we could come back for the next two nights. They paid for our stay at the Hilton that night which was a much nicer hotel. Actually, it was disappointing to return here. First of all, there was used shampoo in our room , a torn bath towel and the walls are paper thin. I heard all of our neighbor's conversations. So, the location was good for Balloon Fiesta, but not the best for everything else. The decor was actually kind of tacky and could use updating. So, based on all the choices in Albuquerque, this would not be on my list as one of them.

We had a very comfortable room in this very quiet hotel. I was glad to see the workout room, even though I didn't have a chance to use it. The ambiance is unique, and probably closer to authentic Albuquerque than authentic Native American. I liked that it didn't look like every other hotel.

The breakfast room was underused and over priced. We wanted a simpler breakfast and another time we would look for some place in the neighborhood.

Loved the Nativo Lodge. It was so quiet that we felt like we had the hotel to ourselves, but I'm sure there were other guests cuz there were cars in the parking lot. The pool is very nice, the rooms are lovely. It is centrally located so that it took no time at all to jump on 25 and get everywhere we were going. We will definitely stay there again!
