    Very helpful staff

    1. Hallways not air-conditioned, very uncomfortable when 100+ outside.2. In-room internet wired, not wireless, but no ethernet cable, had to go to desk to get one. 3. overpriced inhouse restaurant

  • Family with children

    The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed at the hotel twice during our New Mexico trip mainly due to that.I Had stayed there with my daughter two years ago and returned because of good memories. The shuttle service was a real plus. The food in the restaurant was good and reasonably priced. We enjoyed the pool. Nice people from all over the world. Nice furnishings in New Mexican style.

    No complaints. You did a great job.

  • Group of friends

    Sanitized remote control. Clean room, clean beds.

    In the bathroom you could overhear pretty well your next-door neighbour's batchroom chat. Be careful about which side of the building you choose. The side looking at the highway is relatively noisy. The other side is okay.

    Road noise was bad, bad and emergency vehicle activity was extreme........

    Get bigger pillows. The smaller pillows are bad for your back. I don't understand the reasoning behind the smaller pillows. They make it very hard to get a good nights sleep.

    Well designed, close to Old Town. Clean.

    A "better" stay near Old Town

    Excellent location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Christophe was a very hospitable bartender and makes quite an exceptional drink.

    The fridge was broken in our room #137

  • Older travelers

    Easy to find from the airport. Very close to the Interstate, so easy to get around the city. Best of all - within 15 mins walking distance of Albuquerque old town, with its restaurants, heritage buildings, museums etc. Would stay there again if in the area.

  • 6.6

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. I liked the southwestern flare to hotel.

    Hotel itself seemed old and dated for the price.

  • 9.6

    The staff was really outstanding...friendly and helpful. Eva at the front desk was especially helpful and friendly, so much so that we decided to extend our original booking. We enjoyed the made to order breakfasts. Easy walk to Old Town Albequerque.

  • 9.6

    Bed was incredible, the best we've ever slept on. Great breakfast options. All staff really helpful. This hotel is amazing value for money.

    The pool really needs cleaning, the tiles are filthy.

  • 8.2

    Comfortable and well located hotel near Old Town. Good value for money.

    Front desk and restaurant staff is extremely kind and helpful, but also often overloaded so they cannot satisfy customers' requests on time. For instance I had to ask 4 times for an iron to get it 24 hours later. Also my request for an AC adapter (US/EU) could not be fulfilled within my one week stay, not even a reference to a nearby store. I turned to amazon two-day shipping as the only solution.

  • 7.8

    The area, because it was close to everything. The bed was comfortable for my wife it was a little soft for me.

    A better breakfast menu for the free breakfast. Also the refrigerator wasn't cold enough. A microwave would have been nice to have as well.

  • 8.8

    Courteous, helpful, good food, ease of access.

    Bedding too soft, pillows too soft.
