It is easy to get to from Interstate 40. Just a couple of blocks from the highway. Don't to far from Interstate 25. The rooms are clean and large. Good beds/pillows. Nice bathroom. They have a nice bar area with food and a friendly bartender to service you. The area for meals is large and good menu for breakfast as...

We arrived later in the evening. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. Check-on was seamless. Once in our room, we received a phone call to make sure all was well with our room😊. Next morning, we had a very nice breakfast off the menu. Checked-out with ease with cup of tea and coffee to go.

This is hotel with old rooms. As long as they're clean, which mine was, I don't mind. The wifi went down now and then during the evening, so it felt a bit unstable. The AC sounded like a freight train, so I turned it off, but it kept turning back on every once in a while. I don't know how...

Actually wanted another hotel closer to Old Town, but they had no non smoking rooms left so this was second choice. It was just off the Interstate so I was afraid we would hear traffic, but our room was very quiet. It is a half mile walk to the Plaza but I enjoyed the walk. Restaurant style breakfast was EXCELLENT....

This hotel is a standard-type Best Western - no complaints with it. Room was comfortable and didn't have any problems with it. Depending on where your room is, there can be long walks to relatively few and small elevators. The hotel is within walking distance of Old Town Albuquerque, and the Inn's van provides some drop-off service to downtown attractions...
