    The room was great. Loved the huge flat-screen tv with HD channels and the bottle of water in our fridge was a nice touch. Secure gated carpark gives piece of mind. The breakfast was lovely. Nice restaurants within walking distance. Excellent value for money. Would definitely stay here again!

    convenient to downtown area. VERY affordable. felt secure as a female traveling alone. great breakfast and good coffee.cordial staff.exterior of hotel in need of attention, but seems that they are focusing on the interior and room upgrades first, which is good. the hotel is an older building, being renovated

    the hotel is located in a part of downtown that is a little shady , but well patrolled

    I love the air conditioner. I like that it was quite and the staff was very professional.

    This hotel is in a good location if you're interested in the downtown and old town. The rooms are very nice and well kept-up. Unique features that I like are the beds and the little electric fireplace, even though I wouldn't use it during the warmer months. The gated and guarded parking is nice, too.

    As other reviews mention, access to the rooms is from the outside, which is not necessarily bad.

    The staff was very nice and I've really appreciated the continental breakfast.

    It is located very close to the route 66 so it is very noisy, at least on Friday and Saturday evening.

    Shuttle service to Old Town.

    small rooms; strange closet, drawer arrangement; TV was not connected correctly, hence it had to start over loading the satillite system each time we turned it on.

    Friendly and helpful staff. ABQ bus service has stop nearby, so it is easy to reach city center and railway station. The hotel has a shuttle to get you to and from the airport, must be called from the airport for the hotel does not answer email.

    The breakfast didn't live up to the advertisments. Our room had serious flaws: the door was impossible the open more than a little because of the thick carpet, no separate light switch for the bathroom made the whole room lighted up, which is inconvenient in the night. Only one chair and no desk made it very difficult to use the computer. A big piece of unusable furniture took lot of space. A desk or table and some extra chairs would have been better.

    I like the location, near shops and restaurants but yet away from all the noise. Overall was good for the money.

    they should not allow more than 3 visitors per room. People had parties in their rooms and disturbed neighbors. Pool needed to be cleaned up often.

    I'ts an old hotel but near the Downtown and the Old Town. The beds are really comfortable. Breakfast it's not so rich but good.

  • Single

    Parking and tv. Room was clean and bed was nice and fresh.

    I did not like the location. The hotel was clean but seemed very old and had a feel of a second class hotel.

    The hotel needs to be renewed. Old furniture and rooms must be more clean. Swimming pool very dirty

  • Single

    The room was clean and the bed was comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful.

    I would like to have seen some info on area restaurants and attractions. I also would have liked to have an ice machine on the floor I was staying on.

    The place was nice and I enjoyed my stay.

    The beds were a little firm but I still got a good nights rest.

  • Group of friends

    The hotel blue was awesome. It was pretty affordable, especially if there are a couple of you staying there. You can't ask for a better location. The room was very well kept and the bed was very comfortable. The breakfast that they offer in the morning is good as well, not too much there but definitely fills you up and helps save a bit of money on dining out if you are on a budget. I will definitely stay again and might be the only hotel I consider in Albuquerque.
