Stay on a piece of History Route 66
This was a great Motel. A piece of history on Route 66, but it has been modernized on the inside. Very clean rooms, good size for a Motel. Bed in our room was a double, so a little small if you are a larger couple, I don't know if they have queens and kings. Location is walkable to Old Town Albuquerque, as well as to the Aquarium, so very convenient. Would absolutely stay here again. Excellent Motel, and a great price.
