Everyone is an absolute delight even when it comes to needing to switch rooms In valet, Robert is fantastic & extremely kind to your needs, and at the front desk Theresa & Christopher are A++++ in your service needs When it comes to the rest of the resort, the pool is small with part inside & part outside which leaves it quaint & perfect

The hotel is clean and up-to-date even with covid still protocols still in ace for staff but leaves restaurants closed The casino is actually huge with thousands of slot machines, busy tables and a great center bar staff This is a great little getaway or place to stay while in town on business Definitely 2 thumbs up customer service should always be the top item to grade

Burton Rominger

Outstanding service Helpful staff The water jets in the tub went on the fritz and wouldn’t shut off

Maintenance was very quick to respond and fix the issue, as was housekeeping to cleanup after I do recommend requesting a room further away from the elevators as guests are loud and the doors are thin Overall rooms are very well maintained, and very comfortableSeating in the Showroom for concerts is amazing The concessions are quick, restrooms have close and easy access Dining options are limited, however the few that are there have large menus So plan your dietary needs accordingly

Clean As in pristine The drawers that you don’t use when traveling, spotless

Although I’ve noticed some damages on the wall- bar hooks or probably handle bars falling off the wall, a clean hotel always tops that The walls are thick enough so you’d be sleeping peacefully Spacious rooms Staff are very welcoming Thank you to Theresa at the front desk for being so informative and helpful, I really appreciate you! I’ll be back to stay longer

Incredible charm at a great price! These renovated 1930’s artist apartments are super cozy and quaint We stayed in the”Ivy Cottage ” We had a working fireplace that they stocked with wood and had a private patio where we ate our dinner from a wonderful restaurant they recommended

Emily checked us in and showed us to our room personally We could not have been happier with her! Breakfast next morning was yummy as well and the breakfast room overlooked the adorable grounds! Wished I had been staying more than 1 night!

Dianne Hansen

This is not your standard hotel It has so much character in the Casita It is not a new building

I’m guessing 1940s or 1950s? So the quirks of the building are expected, but the fireplace, large living room, cute setting, walk ability to old town and the aquarium made it a wonderful stay Extra friendly hotel staff and a breakfast that is delicious and more enjoyable Ice machine is in a turquoise box on the edge of funky cool gardens Each Casita seems different (I didn’t go in them) Check the bathroom features, our cottage had 15 baths and 2 bedrooms which was great, but no shower stall, instead a jetted tub and hand held nozzle which worked fine, but would have been a bit easier with a holder and shower curtain I would stay there again in a heartbeat because I enjoyed the fireplace so muchrefreshed firewood every day was a nice touch! Thanks for a wonderful stay!

L Dobkowski

While it certainly isn’t pristine, it is extremely charming It feels like stepping back in time in some ways I love the unique style and background of the hotel

It is a historic building and they have worked hard to keep it functioning with the times, but the buildings weren’t built with A/C systems in mind, so set expectations accordingly It was spacious and felt very safe The gardens are beautiful and the staff was wonderful I adore all of the unique structures and art I absolutely would go there again, it was actually my mom’s second time there Please consider this wonderful little business if you are in the area

Very clean rooms with comfortable beds, great view from our room and excellent breakfast The cleaning staff were very attentive However, the best part of our stay was the Customer service and welcome we received from Adriana

At breakfast the food was prepared well and the personnel supporting the breakfast were friendly and helpful It was a pleasure to stay here I would look forward to staying here again

From the time we checked in The Staff was Courteous and Helpful You felt like they Actually wanted to help The music was good, too bad it was only until 8pm

The rooms were nice and clean, the restaurants were tasty and the beer was cold Parking is a little scarce, but other than that, Come and Enjoy The Mexican restaurant across the street was Delicious The Bagel shop on the property was good The Staff at the “Sister” Property bar The Monterrey, were Rude but the Staff at El Vado made up for it The pool was Very clean and there were quite a few Adults and Children enjoying it😃 It was a hidden gem that’s for sure

Roger Swygart

The staff was very friendly and helpful The room was clean and well designed The whole place has great atmosphere full with a central lounging area with a food pod on the street and shops around the outside of the building

Easy to walk to historic downtown from your room You can’t go wrong choosing El Vado I’ve already recommended it to friends and will make it my stay next time I am in Albuquerque

Chris Lee

Route 66 experience here at El Vado was just fantastic This is a very nicely rennovated relic of a great part of American history The staff here were very helpful and kind

I was a long term resident over the summer and I couldn’t have had a nicer experience at El Cuervo! The owners are very kind, and it’s the perfect distance from downtown and only a mile’s walk to Old Town Also, although crime can be notoriously bad in Albuquerque, during my 2 month’s stay there wasn’t one time where I didn’t feel safe, even when I was getting back late at night (and I was a 19 year old girl at the time) I also parked my car out back and didn’t have any problems

If you’re staying in ABQ, there’s no place with better charm, you’ve really got to stay here!!


Highly recommended this museum-like Airbnb!!! This is indeed a historic site and all the furniture pieces are arts! You will feel like living in a museum or an old house of a aristocratic family On the other hand, the TV is big and fancy with all online streaming platforms installed, locks are advanced, everything is convenient The hosts are also very friendly and helpful

Walking distance to downtown and old town Really really fantastic experience here!

Pamela Espinosa

We stayed here for an anniversary get away, excellent choice!!! It was clean, homey, quiet, and had special touches everywhere They let us check in 4hrs early which was a huge bonus Our room was so clean and comfy and had a fireplace

We had a fire going the whole time, so cozy and romantic We ordered a cheese plate and fruit with chocolate plate that were yummy Breakfast was filling and delicious We will definitely be staying here again!

Nikki Micale

This property is great Reasonable price, great rooms, excellent customer service from Brian at the Registration Desk and the restaurant staff too The room was clean, well maintained, and quiet

There is not much available within walking distance for food or entertainment as I had hoped there would be, so I was bored for the evening The quality, preparation, and service for the food was excellent! pool was very full with other guests and kids which was great for them, but I would have liked to have a live band or musician during the evening Overall a great experience

Avenda Marketplace

We came into town for a weekend getaway this place looked amazing online they really fluff it up With anticipation of a relaxing weekend by the pool we find out after booking that the pool is closed for no particular reason Called Guest services several times to get basic information about places to eat or fresh linen and towels no one answered

They also offer breakfast but it’s an Additional charge I suggest going to FLYING STAR CAFE it was a place I found online and it was amazing I wish they had a hotel I would probably have had a better time Unfortunately Crowne Plaza doesn’t meet its online presence so be forewarned you are just paying for a bed and a shower and a pretty lobby (why they got the 3rd star)

JL DaPilot

Well as far as hotels I would recommend just die to the fact that the housekeeper named Ruby went above and beyond for what ever I needed or my family needed She never hesitated and just because I recommend this their service Excellent when it comes to the rooms Now as for the front desk can get busy but they are very friendly as soon as they greet you you feel welcomed

Try it once won’t be disappointed Two pools are better than one and the view is pretty cool

Great location! Charming rooms! Amazing breakfast! We walked to the shops in Old Town Albuquerque; we could have walked to three different museums, but we needed our car for other excursions afterward We had the smallest room, with two twin beds, perfect for my daughter and I The high ceilings, the new “antique” tile

the blue glass toadstool door stop and the footed tub all added to the cozy feeling in our room AND the breakfast, mmmmm, the blue corn scones and fresh fruit with homemade sorbet were my favorites, while my daughter was blown away by the fruit juice blends (blueberry-prickly pear, for instance) The hosts made check in and check out so easy with timely, friendly texts What a delightful stay we had!

Karen Marty

My husband and I had a wonderful 3-night stay in late March, 2022 The room was very comfortable and the heating/cooling system easy to operate The Bottger Mansion is in a fantastic location on the edge of Old Town, Albuquerque

There were many interesting restaurants and shops all within easy walking distance – it was so nice not to have to hunt for parking spaces! Steve and Kathy are warm and hospitable innkeepers, and their breakfasts are not to be missed!

Mike and Chris Goulet

We recently enjoyed a lovely evening in room 21 at the Bottger Mansion It was conveniently located to the airport as well as had some restaurants within walking distance The grounds were just beautiful and it was so nice to sit out on the lawn at the table provided to enjoy their freshly brewed coffee in the morning

They have our favorite pottery shop’s coffee mugs and we were able to purchase one with the Bottger Mansion logo on it We were served a delicious breakfast outside in their courtyard We would definitely consider staying there again in the future

This was a great find for us right on Route 66! (rooms fill up quickly so advise making reservations)The owners have taken the Monterey Motel and completely updated it to a very nice, contemporary place to stay!Take a look at the pictures, and see how large the room is! Great space with a nice couch and modern, up to date bathroom as well!Only 1 minor negative there was no microwave

when you consider what value you’re getting at this motor lodge that was no biggie

Jayla Read

For the price I paid for one night

I expected a little bit more I guessWe stayed in a family room that sleeps 8-10 people There were 5 or 6 towels available – no extras available for pool use, however we did have 5 bath mats?? I found the hand soap dispenser was empty upon our arrival And only coffee for two, with one of the cups appearing to have already been used Two of the lights and outlets near two of the bunk beds did not work Each bunk bed has a cubby space that closes and locks- however some where locked and no key availableWhen I went into the lobby to check out I found the lady surfing the web for couponsOh, and the ice machine was out of orderHonestly the property has the potential to be bad a**, however there is a true lack of care or attention to details – or somethingI would have rather spent my $250/night elsewhere

A beautiful stay! It was quiet and the staff was amazing! I really appreciated the kind words from the breakfast staff I would come back any timeMy only complaint is that my shower drain did not work

I could take maybe five minutes shower before the basin was on the edge of overflowingThe windows were placed a bit strangely directly in front of the toilet and the clear glass shower but I recognize it is a historic building!Again I would absolutely recommend it!

Ashton Alexander

I researched hotels in the area for over a month prior to our trip I wanted clean and safe! Went back and forth between here and a few others So glad I went with Parq Central

I am very picky when it comes to hotels and this one exceeded my expectations Everyone was friendly The rooms were cleaned each day and the hotel bar was great with a beautiful view! The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable! Also, the free breakfast was simple, but great for a quick bite! The bathroom was a nice size with a big walk in shower They will shuttle you anywhere within a 3 mile distance free of charge 10 out of 10!!

darla carmello

The restoration of this place from a hospital to a hotel is interesting The rooms were set up very nice and contemporary style The service was great but the continental breakfast served was unusual

The hotel did not have a pool onky hot tub and the rooftop lounge had a great atmosphere and awesome views The hotel location downtown was good in proximity for business but overall the area seems rundown with many homeless nearby and closed restaurants The best part was the paranormal experience, if you like a little spooky stay here!

We had not planned to stay at this hotel but after staying at another Heritage Hotel it was top on our list when we found that our return flight home was canceled I booked online very early since the reservation center was not open at that hour in the morning (5 am) I had remembered seeing the hotel previewed on the heritage channel during our stay at The Inn and Spa at Loretto earlier that week

Once we obtained our rental car and had some coffee we contacted the hotel and asked if we could drop off our luggage since there were a lot of alerts about car break ins at a lot of tourist locations We were told that we could absolutely do that and to come right over The valet attendant James took care of our luggage quickly and efficiently We returned to the hotel around 2 pm to see if we would be able to check in early Sarah at the desk was very kind and welcoming while briefly listening to our plight She got us checked in early with swiftness and efficiency The room was beautiful and extremely comfortable with every convenience we would need Everyone was so kind, helpful, and welcoming even the hotel security Michelle who brushed the snow off our rental Absolutely loved this hotel and can’t wait to go back


Excellent and wonderful hotel! I really love the Indian style artworks and the details of every furniture and decoration in the hotel and the rooms Very nice pool, and the parking space is right in front of the lobby door Also, there is a food market across a street

It’s really convenient to grab the food I’d love to stay at this hotel again!

Teresa Mills

Cannot speak highly enough of our stay The service was impeccable, from the included valet, front desk and wine bar Our room was very clean and thoughtfully designed – including USB ports in sensible places for charging, beautiful robes and 4 large towels (those with long hair will appreciate having enough towels for body and head!) would absolutely stay here again!

Highly recommend!!!! Would definitely come back

The hotel is clean, the staff is great but do not stay while there is a wedding Bass was shaking our walls- concert level volume We were told they would move inside at 10pm, however, employee then started cleaning and moving tables & chairs until after 11pm

People outside enjoying themselves well into the night If you’re staying for the wedding wonderful otherwise ask if there is an event before booking!

Shawna Baron

We stayed two nights and had a wonderful time So much to do within walking distance- our favorite was Sawmill Market across the street This place is safe, clean, modern, and friendly

The pool is fabulous but they do share it with their sister hotel next door (Hotel Chaco) Also loved the restaurant and gift shop on site Will definitely be back

The ambiance in the lobby is fantastic and has many beautiful features We worked with two different valet attendants during our stay and they were great We called for our car to be brought to the front of the hotel, left our room and headed downstairs, and our car was waiting for us

Super impressive turnaround, less than five minutesRoom decor included these creepy partial faces on the wall The ac did not work as well as we had hoped and it was very hot at night Our room did not have a bathtub, microwave, and the toilet paper was super thin All of the pillows were on the flat side However, the room was clean and the bed was comfy

Emily Feldkamp

This was a unique hotel in an awesome location in downtown Albuquerque The parking situation isn’t ideal, but I used the garage next door with no issue! I got a double room on the 5th floor with excellent mountain views The beds were comfortable and there were a ton of TV channels to browse

I wasn’t a huge fan of the shower – it doesn’t have a door – but other than that the bathrooms are upgraded and very modern! I loved the lobby decor & how they have kept older aspects of the hotel while modernizing aspects of it as well The office space was excellent for getting some work done as wellThere are no coffee makers in the rooms but there is coffee in the lobby every morning that was very good! The biggest downside to this hotel, which is of no fault of theirs, is the traffic noise going all night They do provide ear plugs but since it is an older building the noise really doesn’t get blocked much There is also no fitness center in the hotel, not a deal breaker for me but something to be aware of! Overall, I would definitely recommend staying here and hope to check out the restaurant when I’m back as it smelled so yummy every time I went by!

Dhanashree Chaudhari

Lovely hotel!The decor is amazingThe hotel has small cabanas on level 1 with unique decor you can use as a available to just sit and talk with family/friendsThe elevator is stylish too

The bathroom was a bit weird though There was no door to the shower area so the water splashed outside (It was not a accessible room)The ac didn’t work so it was quite hot at night The instructions for thermostat were not very helpful

Jessica Wojtasek

Had an excellent stay here on our first trip to ABQ The neighborhood is awesome – it’s residential but walking distance to several craft breweries and doesn’t have the touristy vibe of old town (although you can walk there in like 15 min if that’s on your list) It’s really centrally located and totally safe

The rooms are very well decorated with local art and prints I felt kind of pampered here, there are a lot of really nice personal touches Jesse was a wonderful host and has done an amazing job of restoring this propertyWe stayed in the Lottie suite and loved having a kitchen and living room

We really enjoyed our stay at the Painted Lady The suite was immaculate and plenty of room for my wife and I along with my folks Plenty of nice touches, especially if you’re interested in exploring the beer scene in Albuquerque

Jesse is super friendly and knowledgeable to steer you in the right direction for breweries and/or restaurants The courtyard is comfortable and bright My wife really enjoyed the fire pit We will definitely return

Jennie Garst

We loved, loved, loved our stay in the Lottie suite at the Painted Lady Bed & Brew! Jesse thought of every detail to make a stay at the Painted Lady perfect The suite was beautiful and cozy and beyond our expectations Jesse was such a wonderful host too

We enjoyed talking with him and learning about the area and the Painted Lady We can’t wait to go back and enjoy another stay! Thanks, Jesse!

Great experience during my 2 night stay Staff very friendly and they even applied a discount I didn’t know I qualified for when I checked in Had breakfast and dinner in the restaurant and both meals were fantastic

Bed was just right as far as firmness goes My TV stopped working at 9pm and the maintenance guy was in my room in less than 5 minutes to fix it which I really appreciated The location is great, close to the freeway and easy to get around Would absolutely stay here again!

This hotel deserves 5/5 stars for the customer service alone! As someone traveling to NM for the first time, I felt well attended to and safe Gillian and Jasmine stood out the most They were all so attentive, suggested nearby restaurants and sight seeing, and one night even sent up a microwave to my room for my dinner

The cleaning staff also do a great job and are very considerate! This is a great stay for newcomers as it’s close to Old Town, great coffee shops, and even has a Starbucks and Burger King across the street The free breakfast was delicious and some of the best I’ve had as it’s made to order! Shuttle bus service is amazing to and from the airport and other nearby attractions The only things that weren’t the best is that the hotel itself is a bit outdated and the pool was still covered even though it’s end of April and weather was in the 70s & 80s Fridge also made a lot of noise at night

This was a great pet-friendly hotel Very clean, very helpful and knowledgeable desk staff They were super kind with our late arrival due to being stuck on I-40 due to the Sixty Six Fire

My husband and son reported the food was quite good I liked the location, which made it easy to reach historic sites, restaurants, and shopping After a long week on the road, we planned two days here for some downtime It was a lovely place to spend a couple daysI did dislike the prevalence of skunky pot smoke outside the doors closest to our rooms The smell persists well into the hallways It makes it rough for those of us who are allergic Luckily, it doesn’t travel into the rooms, even when folks are smoking directly outside the air unitsMy only room recommendation: room microwaves! We have food allergies and frequently bring things to microwave when traveling I realize this may be a difficult prospect given the age of the hotel–electrical updates are difficult to configure Even a couple lobby microwaves would be helpful

Was able to check in using the app while on the road so when we came in we were greeted by a nice professional lady at the front desk this evening who was very helpful Straight to our room which was very roomy, CLEAN (and I am very particular about this part, especially these days

and I still sanitize my way), and everything in the room was just how it should be Very nice room, comfy bed, and all around great feel here! Especially after a long day of travel it’s very refreshing! If we weren’t so tired would possibly use some of the nice facilities, restaurant, or even grab a drink at the bar Looking forward to having a full night’s sleep soon! Wanted to go ahead and take a minute to review Would definitely stay again!

Unfortunately we didn’t have the best experience with this hotelWe came here wanting to experience a new area and hotel While it’s close to Uptown Albuquerque, the hotel itself is hidden behind construction and isn’t that great of an area

From the moment we came in, we knew this hotel wouldn’t be as good as we would likeFirstly, they don’t answer the message system within the Hilton app We sent several messages over our stay and never got a responseSecond, the air conditioning units within the rooms are obnoxiously loud and don’t stop running We had to turn ours off to be able to sleepThird, the restaurant will charge you a $4 delivery on food you order even if you order food to go at the restaurant and pick it up yourself We had to ask staff to remove this as it didn’t seem appropriate to charge this if they weren’t delivering anything To be fair, their chicken tenders are really good and freshFourth, the restrooms do not have toilet paper holders Really bizarre for a hotel as you’d expect this in the restroomFifth the showers do not have any soap holder/ledge to keep soap on Again it’s really weird as this is a really basic configuration in hotel showersSixth, the toilets are somehow connected to the sinks Whenever you flush toilets, you can hear it flushing from the sink as well A little weird and unsettlingLast, the gym is really small One cardio equipment of each basic type and a few free weights are in this small room It does connect to a decent pool thoughOverall I don’t think I’d stay here again just due to the list of things that this hotel could greatly improve upon

The beds are atrocious The bed creaked every time I moved, and it felt like whoever installed the bed didn’t realize box springs and mattresses are different things As to the pillows, I don’t know who wants to have their head flat against the bed while the pillow fluffs on either side of their head, but if you’re into that, GOOD NEWS! You’ll love these pillows!The place is clean, and the staff are fine, provided you don’t care about masking during the pandemic

I mean, you might get COVID, but you’ll get it with a smile!If you’re disabled, please note at this property, Hilton cares more about their Diamond members being able to park than handicapped people, and there are only two designated spots to the side of the hotel at that (Five spots right out front for diamonds members) However, no one enforces compliance unless specifically asked to do so May the parking odds be ever in your favorIt’s right off I-40, but I wouldn’t say it’s conveniently located since it’s kind of weird to get to once you exit the interstate Be prepared to drive in such a way as to irritate other drivers or to make u-turns a couple of timesI’ve stayed in worse places, for sure, but I dang sure didn’t pay nearly $200 to do so
