Better than I expected
Posted Nov 30, 2015
After booking this with Expedia, I realized I had confused it with another place I wanted to stay for our 4 day vacation in Albuquerque. I was extremely discouraged when I called the hotel and was notified of cancellation fees so we decided to stick it out anyway. We were surprised to find the hotel was very clean, comfortable, and quiet. There were no odd smells in the room, the heating/ cooling unit was quiet and functional, the bed and pillows were comfortable, and the front desk staff were pleasant when we did have questions or need assistance. There were pros and cons to the location: you could literally throw a rock onto the freeway and the motel is on the corner of the off ramp of I-25 and Central (VERY BUSY intersection). A major hospital with airlift is on the other side of the freeway. Earplugs were sufficient to drown out the noise at bedtime. The location was great for our plans. Despite the questionable looking characters in the area (but not at the hotel), we had no problems and felt relatively safe. The hotel had one of the lowest pet "fees" for any hotels in the area. This turned out to be a happy mistake in booking. I would recommend it to others.
