Intrigued by the name - and by the generally glowing TA reviews - we booked a room here for the start of our New Mexico trip. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. Was this going to be an ironic, retro, hipster hotel, making this middle-aged couple feel old and frumpy? Nope. It was a classic roadside motel directly on... More

My partner and I spent a couple of nights here in June 2016. It was very clean and quiet. It is located across the street from a popular restaurant (I forget the name) and near the zoo and Old Town. I felt safe taking a walk in the neighborhood behind the motel in the morning. I believe this is one... More

This was avery nice updated Route 66 motel with a modern bath and comfortable beds. The staff was very helpful and the location very good to Old Town. They provided rags for us to clean our motorcycles. The wi-fi was somewhat slow.

Great motel, large room, very clean and comfortable. Has a guest laundry room and heated outdoor pool. Staff very helpful. Within walking distance of the beautiful Old Town, where there are lots of interesting shops and restaurants. We ate at High Noon which was very good.

We were in town recently for our daughters concert at UNM as well as the football game and stayed at the Monterrey Hotel. Usually we stay at the Parq Central but due to the Ballon Fiesta it was full. What a pleasant surprise. The hotel has only 15 rooms and you are assigned a parking spot corresponding to the room... More

We love non-chain motels like this, and were prepared to love this one too. And we almost did, but the location did us in: the street is very noisy, and while it's an easy walk to Old Town it's not a pleasant one. (While we were there, the road was under construction. But I'm not complaining about the construction noise,... More

Best hidden secret in Albuquerque, NM. Stayed two nights then returned later for one. Rooms are spacious, clean, quite, and very comfortable. We've stayed in many hotels over the 51 years. Wish they were all like this, through back, neon sign hotel. Located about 2 blocks from Old Town. For the price and location you can't beat the convenience. The... More

Comfy retro room and heated pool made for a good experience at the motel. Close proximity to cafe, restaurant and Plaza meant a quick and easy walk to most everywhere. Also a straight-shot drive to Nob Hill and the funky Route 66 shops and restaurants. We ate at Lindy's Diner and food was great and atmosphere and decode just perfect.... More

Looks modest from the outside but the rooms are great. Location a++ for the old town, you can walk anywhere in the old town from here. Very quiet and the host Henry is very friendly. Highly recommended.
