We loved this place. My wife wasn't feeling well so this was a last minute change of plans decision. Yes, it is an old Traveler's Lodge, revamped and on the old Route 66 through the heart of town but they have done a great job of remodeling it. The beds are new and very comfortable, there is a huge new...

We stayed for just one night as we passed through the city. Welcoming staff. Free newspaper and delicious cookies upon arrival. We were on Floor 5 and the hall was not too nice with an ice machine that did not work and looked to be almost falling over (dangerous?). Otherwise, the hotel was great. Spacious, nicely decorated rooms with microwave,...

On my arrival, the initial appearance was not good. The outer appearance leaves a lot to be desired. However, on entering the lobby, the interior is completely different and looks great - well-kept and modern. The walk to our room was outside as this is a motel and again made me concerned about the room as my wife is kind...

Great bed, beautiful TV, excellent location, friendly service, nice amenities (pool; cont. breakfast; delicious cookies in the lobby). Fabulous price. Plenty of good restaurants a very short walk away. It's not the Ritz, but for what it is, it couldn't be better.

I have stayed in many hotels in Albuquerque, and this hotel offers the best value so far. The location is convenient plus it offers all great amenities including toileteries and bottled water at no extra cost. Great shuttle service, internet, tempurpedic bed, big flat screen tv, microwave and refrigerator in the room make me go back. The lobby looks nice,...

It was like that for 3 days straight until i brought it up to the front desk at night (Gloria?) I believe.. they...

I always stay here when we come to Albuquerque. The tempurpedic bed is awesome, especially after a long day's drive, and the flat screened hdtv is perfect for vegging out. Considering the age of the building, the rooms are in great shape and relatively quiet. The neighborhood is a bit sketchy, but the secured parking and building make me feel...

Stayed here in mid October, while attending conference at convention center. Found the room to be clean, and bed very comfortable. The room was lacking a desk or table making it hard to do any work there. There was an enormous, flat screen TV which looked new, did not use it so do not know what channels available. The front...

The pictures look much better than the actual hotel. When we arrived, we were surprised to find that it looked like a motel. All that aside, it was a comfortable stay. The bed was comfy, the flat screen TV was nice, there was a mini-fridge, so we can't really complain. Plus, they offered free shuttle to and from the airport,...

I read mixed reviews about the Hotel Blue concerning its location so I was relieved to find the location not only safe but also very convenient for a solo traveler without a car. I chose the Hotel Blue because of the reasonable rate ($70 including tax for one night), easy access to public transportation and complimentary shuttle service. I called...
