Reviewed 28 March 2012

I don't know where to start, so I'll just give letter grades:

Service: F
Cleanliness: C-
Atmosphere: D

Where we're you folks that left a positive review staying, because it wasn't here! Never again will I stay here, or recommend to others. I'd rather stay at a Motel 6, at least I'd get a smile.

This was a beutiful B&B and the service was absolutely outstanding!! From the grounds to the front desk it was more then a pleasure staying there. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a cute little B&B to stay at.

This was a hard place to review, because of the extremes. The breakfasts were fantastic, served in a very pleasant room off the lobby. Not only are there all the hotel standards (yoghurt, granola, instant oatmeal, dry cereal, toast, bagels, coffee, juice, etc.), the cook came from the kitchen to take orders from each table for eggs any style, omelets (stuffed with a choice of cheese, onion, green chilies, red peppers, spinach, and mushrooms), pancakes, french toast, breakfast burritos (same choices of stuffings) and quesadillas (same choices), He then headed back to the kitchen to prepare the food to order. It was wonderful.

BUT - the picturesque buildings are very old and in need of repair. In fact, the excuse given when we asked about the lack of hot water in the bathroom wash basin was "the buildings are old". We got the same justification when we mentioned the dripping faucet in the kitchen sink. The living room blinds didn't close well and window ledges were covered in dust, probably because the windows didn't either. It appeared that, instead of repairs or remodeling over the years, occasional coats of paint were expected to suffice. "Dated" is a kind description of both the kitchen and the bathroom., though that ignores the tube mold.

On the other hand, the bed was quite good . We loved having a living room for our early riser in addition to the bedroom and kitchen, along with a tiny "office" space. The "bones" of the casita we were in were lovely - and would respond quite well to remodeling and refreshing. And the location almost adjacent to Old Town is perfect.

Would we go back, knowing what we know now? I can't decide about that, either.

We made a reservation based on photos via the internet. The B&B is easy to find, just one block south of Central Ave. and Rio Grande. The structures are old style Santa Fe, in a unique layout. The buildings are quite old and in need of restoration. The casitas are noted as historical, but vast improvements need to be made. The doors leading to the outside have large gaps, and easy for bugs and critters to crawl in. The kitchen (Rt 66 Casita) is very dated and in need of tile work on kitchen tops as well as the vanity in the bathroom. The facility is noted as a B&B, and while the lobby area is nice and dining area is nice, the casitas need refreshing. The front window in our casita would not close properly so it created a large cold draft for us. Had to sit with blankets on to watch TV. Cracked window in the bathroom and old grout that needs replacing around tub and vanity sink. Great selection of TV channels. In order to stay here, you must expect to see old fixtures and items that need repair. I would suggest that most casitas are in excess of 50+ years old. So expect some problems. The grounds inside the open courtyard is nice, but the buildings (casitas) are quite old. For the price charged, we would have rather stayed at a modern hotel. Not sure that we would stay here again, due to rundown inside fixtures, and gaps in doors. Yes, it has some Santa Fe style flair, but too old and rundown. Repairs are needed. Breakfast was cooked to order and had a nice selection. Internet service was down, and there is no lobby personel or front desk personel after 9:00 PM so beware. Rate 2 to 3 stars out of 5.

The grounds are immense and I imagine quite beautiful in the late spring/summer. We stayed in La Cascada. It was clean, but showed its age. The bed and sofa were new. The bed was comfortable and was its saving grace. It has a good location for Old Town and is OK if you aren't planning on spending much time in your room.

Casas de Suneos is a great hotel in Albuquerque. It is in a quiet residential neighborhood about a 5-minute walk from Old Town. The people running the hotel are friendly and accomodating.

At this hotel, you are housed in a casita (little house), and each one is different. Ours was "Kachina" and it was wonderfully appointed. There was a living room with two couches (at least one had a pull-out bed), table, and tv. There is a kitchen that has a mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, glasses/sliverware/dishes, oven, and stove. The bedroom has 1 king bed and two dressers. And, the bathroom (attached to the bedroom, so if you have someone sleeping in the living room be mindful that they'll have to pass through the bedroom to use the bathroom) has a sink partially separated from the bedroom and then a fully separated toilet and tub/shower.

Rooms come with shampoo, conditioner, soap, and lotion. Irons and hairdryers are also there.

Breakfast comes with your stay. There is a continental spread and then you get to order from the menu as well. The food was very good, though I hate to say on one day I did find a hair in my quesadilla.

The lobby of the hotel has an internet and wifi is free if you bring a device of your own.

The location is great. We were very thakful that we decided to rent a car. Coming from NYC I'm not accustomed to needing a vehicle, but it's almost necessary in Albuquerque. I did see buses running but I'm not sure if that would work for exploring the area. So, although you can only really walk to Old Town, other areas such as Sandia, Rt. 66, Petroglyph, etc. are a very short drive away and the highway is only about 5-7 minutes from the hotel.

I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The hotel's website has an overview of each room. We stayed in Kachina and loved it.

The place has true personality! Our casita was beautifully decorated. It included a living room, a full kitchen, a beautiful bathroom with a cast iron bath tub, and a bedroom with a little skylight on top of a California king bed. There were a lot of cute details, like the complimentary toiletries and snacks. The whole casita was spotless.
Now let me tell you about the breakfast! Everything organic, extensive fruit and fresh juice selection. To the regular pastries, toast, bagels, etc, you have Carlos, the chef, coming to your table and chatting with you while it takes your a la carte order for eggs any way you like it. By far the BEST omelette I recall having.
The front desk service was surprisingly dry compared to what you usually find in the hospitality business, though. Courteous but distant, and at some times, hard to get hold of.
The neighborhood look a tad shady when we got there but the whole area is gated and we really did not have any problems.
Overall, we loved it We were just passing by through Albuquerque but we would definitely have loved to enjoy the peace and beauty of the for a bit longer. Great for an intimate retreat of several days.
