Stayed for 3 nights, to see Old Town and other ABQ attractions.
The room was very clean, our bed excellent. There was a good amount of space. We paid a little extra to get a suite, it was great to have more square footage.
The TV was merely okay. The set up resulted in a semi-blurry picture reminiscent of a tube TV, despite the flat screen.
The air conditioner did not have a setting where you could have the fan running constantly, which I view as a drawback. When staying at a motel where the guest cars park very near the rooms, it is highly preferable to be able to have some white noise. We would have slept better if there had been a "fan on" option.
The location is excellent, you can walk to Old Town, and there are a couple of basic restaurants within walking distance as well. Because of windy weather, we did not do the nearby botanical gardens, but I will note they are also within walking distance.
The parking lot is not really big enough for the number of rooms, and the parking striping is badly done, resulting in some ridiculously narrow spots (but some are okay, it seems they took the time measure properly for only part of the lot). In the end, the parking ended up being slightly chaotic.
The breakfast was very good, I especially appreciated the chicken sausages.
The staff was very friendly and professional, housekeeping did a nice job. A note about housekeeping - despite much signage indicating an environmental-friendly aim of not replacing all the towels and sheets everyday - all our towels and sheets were replaced every day. This was despite our following the steps to indicate we did not need them replaced.
The wireless internet worked well.
In the end, I can't give more than 3, due to the mentioned air conditioner, television and wonky parking lot striping issues. A nice stay, but nothing extraordinary.
