Adobe and Roses
Ranked #9 of 13 Albuquerque B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 April 2016

My husband and I were so delighted to have chosen Adobe & Roses B&B for our 3-day visit to Albuquerque in February. The Southwestern styling, kiva fireplace and all the wood we needed, reasonable price, comfortable king-size bed, eclectically decorated casita, including small, efficient kitchen, provided all the amenities we needed to enjoy our stay. We could envision how beautiful in the spring the gardens and pond would be as we looked out the picture window in the living room. Our gracious host Dorothy delivered our breakfast choices to us promptly. What friendly, great service!

Room Tip: Detached rooms are the most private.

I have stayed at Adobe and Roses multiple times over the past couple years, and I always look forward to returning. It is quiet and private and surrounded by lush gardens and trees, and the lodging is neat and comfortable with classic adobe architecture and furnishings. Dorothy Morse, the owner, is kind and accommodating. She obviously takes pleasure in knowing that her guests are well cared for. I visit Albuquerque frequently to bike and skate on the city's extensive multi-use trail system, particularly the award winning Paseo del Bosque trail along the Rio Grande. Albuquerque's extensive trail system, the cottonwood forest, the mythic river, and great local food, make it a vacation destination. I can bike straight from Adobe and Roses down a short cool graded dirt trail to the Paseo del Norte branch of the trail system, continue briefly west to the main feature, bike south to the Nature Center or to the zoo or botanical garden or Tingley beach, picnic under cottonwoods, sit by the Rio Grande, then return at the end of a long day of biking and exploring having never had to cross a road or to share space with a car except crossing tiny Ortega Road to get to my first trail. Albuquerque was so wise to have invested in such an extensive recreational greenway. When I stay at Adobe and Roses I can't believe my good luck. Not only do I enjoy world class recreation, but at the end of the day I also get to return to the quiet oasis of Adobe and Roses for quality rest and restoration. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to take full advantage of their precious time, and who appreciates good living and good hospitality.

I stayed here for a couple of nights and this place was the perfect quiet and cozy retreat. I was driving a ton and got in late and they were so accommodating. The hosts were so incredibly sweet as well. Clean, beautifully maintained and furnished bnb with a nice outside patio/courtyard area. The neighborhood is quiet as well if you're looking to stay outside of the business of the main city area. If you're looking to completely chill and get away from it all, this is a great place. I'd come back any time! Thanks guys!

Quiet location but not far from anything. Liked all nearby trails. Host is very attentive. Lots of flowers and animals on site. We really enjoyed our stay here. We had several fires in the kiva fireplace.

We drove into Albuquerque late, planning to just drive through but we were too exhausted to continue. We thought our only option would be a motel 6 but low and behold, Dorothy answered her phone and allowed us an overnight stay at 9pm, no questions asked! Not only was the Adobe decorated by what looked like a professional, but it was clean, cozy, and peppered with thoughtful amenities. Breakfast was a delight with fresh eggs from Dorothy's on-site chickens. Next time we roll through Albuquerque, we'll be sure to stay more than just one night!

We located this B&B thru Google Maps. We were looking for a last minute reservation. Dorothy was a very gracious & helpful hostess. Our suite included a king sized bed, living room, kitchenette & bath. Decor very authentic. Very quiet, fireplace is a plus, fresh flowers & a freshly cooked breakfast of eggs from her chickens with fruit, bacon, asparagus & toast delivered to our room. Wish we could have stayed a couple of days.
Great location for an extended stay.

Room Tip: We chose the casita

My sister had recommended Adobe and Roses for years, and finally I had the opportunity to spend 3 nights there with her. It’s the perfect retreat, set well back off a quiet side street. It was lovely to walk each day through Dorothy’s garden to our little casita. The Sandia Mountains were the perfect backdrop to the rising hot air balloons, which were visible from our window every morning. Each evening we enjoyed fragrant fires in the traditional kiva fireplace. The generously sized and elegantly proportioned rooms are remarkably constructed, using real adobe bricks, large structural beams across the ceiling, pretty tile work, and a traditional brick floor laid expertly on sand. Dorothy patiently showed us all the architectural details we so greedily inquired about! We had quick access to the extensive bike trails along the Rio Grande, and Dorothy kindly oriented us to some other opportunities as well. Can’t wait to return, and will definitely recommend to friends!
