Flew in late for a trade show at convention center for the next day. All staff from phone reservations, front desk and shuttle drivers were pleasant and professional. Breakfast space was very nice, can't duly comment on the food itself. My room was clean, comfortable and well maintained. Overall, an excellent value in a lively, if not colorful downtown area....

Clean comfy room, full breakfast, helpful front desk staff, all day shuttle, fresh baked cookies available for guests, clean safe pool area and gym. Some areas are a little dated but our overall experience is the reason for the rating.

Spent a couple nights in the hotel, but more a motel really. Friendly staff and rooms large and clean. Free secure parking, but guess may get full up during peak months. Good breakfast. Entrance to rooms is via common balconies around outside of hotel. Ask for a room with view over central Downtown. The motel is situated in middle of...

We loved this hotel! It's in a cool downtown ABQ location. We rolled in with no reservation snapped up a room for 80 something bucks, which included free secure parking in their gated lot. It is an older hotel that has been fixed up nicely while keeping with the original decor, it has lots of charm. 'Loved the rooms, we...

As a community group that does policy work, we often hold gatherings in a variety of places across the state. The Hotel Blue exceeded all expectations and allowed this to be our most successful and seamless event yet. The staff were extremely helpful, especially William at the front desk who was always available for my many questions. Sunil, we could...

After being rescheduled for a flight, I booked a room at this motel for one night. I was a single female and at first, at bit concerned about safety. After awhile, I realized, the place is safe. There is a high fence around the property and security cameras. And, during my stay, I saw that many of the people staying...

This is a clean, quiet, reasonable place centrally located. Near Old Town, the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. One must-experience bonus is the Saturday market in the park across the street. One of the best markets in a great setting.

We were on the 5th floor, with outside walkways to the rooms....which wasn't a problem.Room well equiped....would you believe an electric fireplace?!, as well as a fridge, microwave, iron and hairdryer. Staff were first class....ask and they responded quickly. Breakfasts were comprehensive (eggs, waffles, hash browns, fruit, cereals, etc) with USA Today newspaper. Free hotel shuttle service to Old Town,...

All time worst hotel I have even stayed at. I also became very ill while there. It was absolutely filthy. We were stuck due to the city being oversold for a convention. I would have been better off sleeping in the car.
