Just off the Interstate, so very handy as we were passing through. Efficient front desk staff. Plenty of room amenities. Restaurant style breakfast. Very secure with card entry door locks to the buildings.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This is the hotel of choice for my wife and I each year when we visit New Mexico. The rooms are clean, quiet and well maintained. The hotel staff from to front desk on is consistently polite and friendly. The hotel is located close (very Close) to 25 but freeway noise is basically non-existent. There is an excellent bar and...

This is one of the worst hotels I've ever been to. Kudos to them for fooling people with those pictures. The furniture looks like it's from the 60. The linen are so old they don't even look white anymore. they are doing extensive renovation so there is dust and noise everywhere. We were very upset they didn't notify us about...

I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your visit with us. We do have information about the renovation posted, and our reception team is normally very good about letting our guests know what to expect. We certainly waive any cancellation fee if the renovations are just not something you want to deal with. We have hand carved solid...

We stay at the Rio Grande Inn every year on our way to Arizona. We like it because of it's easy access to I40. This is a very clean motel and there is a restaurant with the motel. Breakfast is free at the restaurant. We also like to walk (1 mile) to the Church Street Cafe in Old Albuquerque. This...

At first glance and from the previous reviews and pictures, we were slightly disappointed in this property. We have always had a great experience at Best Westerns and expected nothing less with this visit. While the front office staff was terrific and the grounds were above par, the interior of the hotel needs attention to detail. The hallways were dirty...

The room was nice and spacious. Lots of secure parking. The hot tub was only luke warm. I told the hotel about it and they said they will fix the issue. I am confident that will be done. The location was good. Walking distance from Old Town. The price was reasonable.

Wonderfully comfortable beds. Clean rooms and convenient parking. Friendly and helpful staff. We will definitely go there again next time we are in Albuquerque. It's convenient to Old Town and great shopping.

This Best Western is located in a very good location, right off of I-40. Convenient place to stop after a long trip. There was a lot of renovations taking place in the parking lot so parking was slightly compromised. There appeared to be surveillance cameras in the parking lot so I felt safe not having a view of my vehicle....

Booked this hotel through Priceline. We were looking for good place to stay that was convenient to old town and other areas in Albuquerque. This place is close to I-25 and I-40. However, the entrance is quite tricky--you can miss it on Rio Grande Boulevard; it's next to a car repair business. Staff was friendly and informative of Old Town....

Near freeway. Plenty of parking. Great local places to eat that are within about 1.5 miles of the hotel.There is a Starbucks located across the street from the hotel. Hotel coffee was good too...the served Seattle's Best. Staff was nice and room was clean. The hotel is slightly dated...but well taken care of.
