This place is really run down, dirty and scary. And normally we would NEVER stay here but the Balloon Festival was going on and it was only more reasonably priced place we could find. There are people living in this motel, need I say more. They sit outside their rooms/apartment drinking at night. It's just dirty and scary.

My wife and I were traveling through Albuquerque to visit friends in New Mexico. Since I was separating from the military we had our cat. The website says "pet friendly" all over it, and has several signs in the lobby to the same effect. Their policy is actually "dogs only," which you have view the list of all hotel policies... More

We would like to apologize for the inconvenience! We believe there was a misunderstanding with our front desk. We have taken from this action to display and pronounce our pet policy a lot better to display we do not allow cats. More

Booked online and found it to be not at all what was expected. I checked in to get out of the 103 degree heat and that was a mistake! It took over 2 hours to get the room livable! Then, found out they charge for ice! They were very small rooms. For a hotel that marked its price down from... More

We were driving R66 and arrived at this hotel which was already pre booked and paid. The man at the desk was coughing and spluttering and said we had to pay when it had already been paid by our travel agent and we proved it. The mans attitude was beyond terrible. Didn't even apologise for the issues about the payment... More

The Motel was old and dated, but it was clean, comfortable, quiet and very centrally located. Family operated and the family was charming. We would stay there again next time we travel to Albuquerque. We went there for our Wedding anniversary Feb 29th. Took and Amtrak train there.
