Great breakfast, clean, comfy big bed. Would definitely stay again if something can be done about the new (?) thermostats. They have a BRILLIANT light that illuminates the entire room. Could not find any way to turn it off or even dim it, even though we were told you can dim. Covered it with towels and it still shines brightly... More

Great stay at a great price. The breakfast was above and beyond the norm for a room at this price point. My room was very clean. The parking area well lit and safe. Very close to old town and within walking distance of many restaurants.

Just stayed one night, but the location of this hotel allowed us to walk to Old Town, Albuquerque Museum and Museum of Natural History and Science. Great location! Central Ave was being torn up and construction all over the place but not too difficult to get in and out of. All the better that we could walk.

EconoLodge Old Town is on old Route 66, but it shares nothing with its neon cousins on the highway. The rooms have been updated (hardwood floors, lots of electrical outlets, high-tech thermostats), the towels are nice, and the wifi works well). The parking lot is small, and was full to overflowing on Saturday night, but the motel management and staff... More

This motel was not only our favorite, but also the least expensive, of all the places we stayed at during our 2-month cross-country road trip. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is great, near I-40 and next to Old Town Albuquerque, allowing us to walk to or have a few-mile drive to places we visited. The motel even... More

I had a terrible experience with Daniella who said she was the manager. We booked our room several days in advance. It was a simple king bed room and we had our little dog. The day we checked in they called and said we would have to be moved to a room with 2 queens because of the dog and... More

Not a great stay and out of 16 hotels/motels in 23 days of Route 66 trekking, one of the worst places we stayed at. Our "superior" room ("suite") was situated under the stairwell so looking out of the window you only saw a concrete wall 2 yards away - and of course the room was very dark. We changed rooms...
