My son and I stayed here one night while traveling Route 66, it was spotless. The decor is dated, but in excellent shape. I walked into the room and there was none of that musty or damp odor/ feel. It has everything you need, plus a small treat waiting for us on the table. The beds were very comfortable. The...

This motel really was a pleasure to visit. From arrival at reception until we left, we found the motel and the owners a perfect combination. The owners were welcoming and helpful, pointing us in the right direction to take in the local area.The room was clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated in an almost retro sort of way, that worked wonderfully....

The Monterey Motel was clean and comfortable. I would have rated it "excellent" except for the neighborhood. The Old Town area of Albuquerque needs more renovation. We did not feel comfortable walking in the neighborhood after dark, but we did not hesitate to walk to the nearby aquarium and botanical gardens. We would stay there again.

A crazy name for a fine motel. This is a characterful old motel, run by a Polish family very much as an American institution. It harkens back to the 50s with small but adequately equipped rooms, with parking outside, a small but perfectly adequate swimming pool, a laundry and a good location near Old Albuquerque with lots of restaurants and...

Stayed at this motel for 2 nights. It is well run and maintained and very clean. It is a no frills drive up to your door motor inn. It has a nice small pool area, laundry with a microwave in the laundry room. It is a good value. It is walking distance to Old Town ABQ, The owners gave some...

You can find expensive, overpriced and nonpersonal hotels in Albuquerque or you can enjoy a very clean, comfortable and affordable home away from home at the Monterey Nonsmokers Motel. Bo and Henri along with Victor the dachshund are welcoming and friendly and we have enjoyed their hospitality for many trips. The motel is close to many attractions including the Zoo,...

Two months ago, I revisited Monterey for another extended stay. My purpose was to sell a Jeep from an estate I'm executing and to show my partner the delights of ABQ and the wonders of northern NM, which she loved. She also loved Monterey and its owners, Henry and Bo, who made us feel quite at home and helped me,...

The motel is clean, well run and maintained, and has a decent pool area. It is not luxurious but it is a nice place to stay and relax while traveling. A good value too. We enjoyed a quick swim and sitting by the pool in the evening. Will stay there again.

Absolutely best place in Albuquerque. We were here for a family wedding and The Monterey was just perfect. We loved everything about the place: mini fridge freezer actually freezes things, room very very clean, lots of outlets for charging electronics, pool was private, and location was centrally to many many things. As recommended, we requested a room at the back...

Stayed here largely due to other reviews here, so I thought I should post my own. I have lived in several major cities, so I'm not paranoid about city neighborhoods. But when I saw a few sketchy looking youths few doors down from this motel as I U-turned to pull in, it wasn't a great feeling. The owner? who checked...

In the past 15 years we have had NOT one customer who was inconvenienced in any way or complained about the DESIGNATED FRONT-END.. FRONT-END parking is a common occurrence in lodging institutions across the country and the globe. Our parking lot is somewhat narrow and was designed and built to be in ONE-DAY direction and we require HEAD-IN (ONE-WAY) parking...
