          • Couple
            7.4

            the restaurant service and food was very poor.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            It was good value for the money. It was well-located being within walking distance of Old Town Albuquerque and economical freeing up funds for those activities--touring, shopping, dining--that one might wish to d in old town. It is readily freeway accessible to the freeway to do that travel to the natural settongs for which one might visit Albuquerque.

          • Family with children
            6.2

            A/C was loud didnt get much sleep

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Staff was great, very helpful and accomodating. Room was good size, good value, and the pool was convenient for family time following a day of shopping within walking distance. Restaurant choices were also within walking distance.

          • Family with children
            6.6

            Restaurant on site, convenient.

            Elevator on East side would not stop on third floor. Guess they might have mentioned that since we were on third floor! Couldn't cost that much to fix guys! Check in clerk must have been having a bad day, as she was curt & right on the edge of rude and definitely not friendly.

          • Single
            10.0

            Friendly and helpful staff, clean room, I ran off and left my cell phone in the room, called after I arrived home, they mailed it to me!

          • Single
            7.0

            The room was big, clean, good furniture. The staff is friendly. The shuttle service is very helpful.

            The breakfast is not include and if there weren't for the Sturbucks located at the mini plaza near the hotel I must be obligated to eat it here.

          • Single
            7.8

            Location -- easy access to freeway and to other Old Town locations where I had family function going on

            Size of elevators -- too small for a hotel as busy as this seemed to be.

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            Location, excellently maintained, super helpful desk staff.
