I don' t know when they last remodeled this motel, but assume it has been quite a while. The rooms are very small, and had a bad odor., along with the polyester cover that rarely gets washed. It took three hours to warm up the room and it still was not very warm. The bathroom is ancient. When you try...

We planned to stay here 2 nights and use this as the base camp for exploring Albuquerque. However, we were having so much fun and the hotel was nice enough we extended our stay an extra night.

Clean room, great front desk, nice comfortable big bed, and quiet room! Could have better water pressure tho. Located about 10 minutes from the airport which is why I mentioned quiet you can't hear the planes from the room.

We traveled to New Mexico from the east coast so weren't in need of anything fancy since we knew we wouldn't be in the room that much.

Staff were friendly and the room was comfortable. There was a bit of noise from the neighbours opening and closing doors. Pool was refreshing. Location wasn't walking distance from any restaurants or attractions and not in the best part of town.

We drove into ABQ late at night after driving all day in the rain. We found a special on hotwire for 40 bucks and didn't know what to expect.

We made the arrangements late at night while traveling. When we finally arrived at 1:45 AM, the manager was waiting for us, and was very nice and accommodating, despite the fact we arrived so late. If ever in the area again would definitely stay there again.
