Solid hotel and being maybe 5 blocks from Old Town ABQ it is not super cheap but probably an optimal choice for many ! You are just 2 or 3 blocks further away from old town than Hotel Albuquerque AND closer to I40 (BW is almost on the off ramp of I40 -- but noise wasnt an issue in my room). Parking seemed safe although the homeless were not out in force due to a cold weather snap in mid Nov '21 -- lot is well lit and fenced. There's a good resturant/winery bar a block over that is very good and handy to have -- better than the 'tasting rooms' by Old Town Square. Plus there is a restaurant on site.
