The front desk and staff were very nice. The location is great, within walking distance to old town. Plus there are a couple of restaurants even closer. However, other guests arriving back to their rooms at 2 AM woke us up. The TV in the next door could be heard clearly at that hour. Not sure how you fix that,...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 March 2017

This is the hotel of choice for my wife and I each year when we visit New Mexico. The rooms are clean, quiet and well maintained. The hotel staff from to front desk on is consistently polite and friendly. The hotel is located close (very Close) to 25 but freeway noise is basically non-existent. There is an excellent bar and...

In town to visit Old Town area and this hotel is very convenient to all the attractions and restaurants here. Will certainly stay here again. Rooms were very clean. Breakfast was also good. Convenient to I40 as well.

Our first time in Albuquerque. Restaurant waiter Johnathan was not only efficient and courteous in his profession duties, but he took the time to guide us to certain destinations during our four day stay at this hotel. Johnathan is an extraordinary employee who proves that service is as much, if not more, important than the product. he serves. This property...

We stayed here on our way west to visit family in Arizona. Booked reservation via their website. Location was a little hard to get to in rush hour traffic but we made it okay. The room was nice and the beds were very comfortable. They have a restaurant in the hotel where we ate both dinner and breakfast. The food...

I stay in Albuquerque quite often and have tried several hotel chains. None of the compare to Best Western Plus Rio Grande Inn. The staff is so hospitable, the hotel is clean and spacious, the food is amazing. I enjoyed my breakfast meals immensely.

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay with us. I apologize that the service in the restaurant was slow. I cannot imagine why a meal would take this long to be served, and will follow up with our team. We have many updates in progress in our public spaces at the moment and have updates planned for our guest...

Location couldn't be more convenient, and the hotel has a restaurant so when you stop here for the night, you really can relax. Good menu, reasonable prices, good service. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Wifi and parking are free. There's hot breakfast option in the morning.

This was a great choice for us. They have free airport pick up, and are close to Old Town Albuquerque. It's also an easy trip to Santa Fe, without having to pay the high prices of the hotels there. The rooms are clean, the service people are friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is decent.

Pool still has giant bubble over it so it is so hot in there that you can use it. Very far from the beautiful pool picture. Clerk offered us to sign up for rewards point card to get the free breakfast (other places just give this for free) and it wouldn't accept a postal code. Instead of saying we will...

I am very sorry to learn that we did not provide you with a good experience. This is the time of year in Albuquerque that we can have an 80 degree today and 55 degree tomorrow. Also, we have high winds at this time of year and it makes it very difficult for us to keep the pool clean. Most...
