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!

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!

Feedback From Real Customers


The female owner / manager appeared very sweet at check-in I went back a few hours later and she started complaining about some of the guests I thought that this was in extremely poor taste!! The beds were okay The breakfast was small

The pool was small and could use a good acid wash Bottom line for one star is we got charged $25 on our debit card 3 days after we checked out I called them to find out what they were doing She said “we left dirty towels” I asked her if she had pictures of these “dirty towels” She said, “no” I told her there was only two adults and two children in two rooms! Yes, we all took showers but no one was that filthy that we needed to be charged $25 for towels She hung up on me I checked both rooms at 4 am when we left (for forgotten items), I saw no filthy towels I saw used towels in corners Watch this place!!


Based on the reviews and pictures, I was expecting at least a decent 2-star hotel Unfortunately, this is more in line with a 1-star rated hotel It’s a basic Inn with some interesting and unique-looking decor

The rooms are very dated and in need of a major refresh The exterior door didn’t lock, there is an infant-quality plastic mattress protector that sounds and feels like you’re sleeping on a plastic bag, the bathroom door hits the toilet, the shower faucet was messed up, the water from the sink faucet had a cloudy color to it (the public water is fine here – must be the plumbing), signs of dirt and concerning black grime in areas, and the list goes onIn addition, this location is right next to a busy street Expect lots of noises from loud cars and people that will keep you up It doesn’t help that the door and HVAC aren’t sealed up very well (you can see light)The breakfast is about as basic as it gets with the usual dry cereal, waffle machine, bad coffee, etc It smells like an old cafeteriaThere are new owners for this establishment, who were friendly, and helpful But we were only here for two nights and didn’t plan on spending the entire stay working with them to address every single thing in their room Especially considering how obvious many of these issues were The management/owners need to seriously check all of the rooms prior to checking in guestsOverall, this place needs a lot of work Until then, it should be re-classified as a 1-star hotel/inn, and the price dropped Otherwise, at the price we paid, there were considerably better options in the area

Dakota Ann

Not a bad place to stay In a good part of town The walls are a bit thin, so if you’re a light sleeper you will definitely have trouble sleeping, as it is right next to the road and people walking next to rooms can be loud

Breakfast is a little skimpy but if you like waffles, toast or Raisin Bran cereal you’re all set Room was clean and beds were comfy Overall, 7/10 stay

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

Ken Long

Home2 was outstanding across the board At the front desk the customer service representative Phonomary (my spelling is probably incorrect) was very helpful with information about the city that may our visit more enjoyable than it would have been without her help The room and the hotel in general was very clean

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

Sripriya G Bala

Excellent hotel stay Had a decent hot breakfast The hotel location is located in a mid point making it accessible to almost all eateries and gas stations

The hotel is near to Costco Being a Costco member, we refilled gas at Costco, which saved us some money The hotel was close to Interstate, which makes us accessible to connect to Arizona immediately The rooms and bathroom were clean The staff was very helpful and kind The wifi was good

Jennie Ragland

I am a loyal IHG member and stay at their hotels whenever possible I picked this particular hotel because it was pet friendly and I am traveling with my two dogs I am writing this review to give kudos to Beth, who worked the front desk during the evening shift

Beth was efficient, friendly, warm, knowledgeable She is a fabulous representative of the brand, and quite frankly, the BEST front desk person I’ve dealt with at any IHG propertyBreakfast at the hotel was quite good The room was sufficient to my needs It was clean and well appointedNot sure why one signs a “contract” when having pets in the hotel because the contract isn’t enforced Room 123 left their yippy dog alone in the room and Beth kindly gave me ear plugs Another room had 3 large dogs when the contract states the limit is two I’m just not fond of unenforced mandates Either have contracts with your guests or don’tI would stay at this particular hotel again should I have dogs with me when I travel


The moment I stepped inside of this hotel, I felt home already though we just stayed only for a night This hotel is our last stop and we stayed in four different hotels before this location So far this is the best hotel we had during our trip

Their lobby is neat and clean, Our room is tidy and bright, they even have provided Dove toiletries They’re breakfast is phenomenal compare to the other hotels we stayed too Very organized buffet with a lot of options It’s location is also accessible and convenient, right just the exit of I40 west


Had a decent stay there Area surrounding hotel is sketchy There were very suspicious individuals not too far from the hotel but they do have armed security that roam the premises

As far as the room goes, it was pretty nice Fan in the bathroom didn’t work though Breakfast was great Overall a very good stay Parking was cramped too, but that was bcuz they were having a lot repaved

Jessica R. Jacobelli

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

blanca ortiz

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

The staff was excellent, extremely accommodating and friendly with every interaction We stopped off from a long days travel and Gabby was so nice even though it was busy with others checking in and us with no reservations She was quick and efficient in helping

In the morning before heading back out for another long day of travel we stopped at the front only to be greeted by another friendly employee, Ralph! He answered all of our questions we had and even sent us away with a to-go breakfast and a smile

David Leask

Staff was fantastic Location is great Hotel is in need of serious upkeep

Fitness center was disappointing One broken treadmill and the other cardio bike looked like it was repaired with spare parts that didn’t belong to the bike TV remote was dead and chair in the room was stained Could be a great place but ownership needs to show more attention to detail The hotel was not horrific However cleanliness and upkeep were concerning I would return only because the front desk was fantastic and customer service oriented

Great hotel! Awesome location walkable to old town, so tons to do The service was top notch, some of the friendliest people Rooms were recently renovated and quite nice, they even thought to make the shower heads fit tall people! Bartenders and restaurant staff were super nice and helpful

Highly recommend!!!! Would definitely come back

Stephanie Armitage Sichler

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

This was an excellent choice! My family, my mom and dad and my mother in law all stayed in one house The house was very nice, clean and warm Steve and Kara were amazing and breakfast was wonderful! We all enjoyed the hot tub, the stars and the short walk to several amazing restaurants

I would highly recommend staying here as a couple, by yourself or with family, it is located in downtown Albuquerque but feels like your out of the city, it is truly a gem My family will definitely be staying here again

Susan Starr

This past week I had the wonderful experience of staying in the Historic B&B’s Heritage House! I stayed in the Rose Room which is a beautifully appointed and elegantly decorated gold and red bedroom with an adjacent sitting room The bed was super comfy and I greatly appreciated the fact that each bedroom is individually climate controlled Each of the four breakfasts I enjoyed were bountiful and delicious

I feasted on fresh fruit, amazing organic egg dishes, crisp bacon and sumptuous pancakes But best of all, I loved the warm reception and attention I received from the Grant family! I look forward to returning to Albuquerque and this charming exceptionally well run B&B!

Michelle Roaque

We really enjoyed staying at the Downtown Historic Bed & Breakfast of Albuquerque, NM! WE were getting away for a quick and I mean quick mini get-a-way WE only were able to spend 1 night The room was the Gold Room, it was lovely and so comfy

We have stayed in almost every room at this B & B and have never been disappointed! Breakfast was yummy as usual and the owners are always so accommodating to us that we always feel right at home! The family that owns the B & B are such a lovely family If you are planning a trip to Albuquerque, I suggest you choose to stay here because you will not be disappointed!

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

Staff is nice Grounds are cleanThey have daily breakfast, but I wouldn’t recommend it

Their fitness center is small but adequateMy room had a refrigerator and a microwave The showers are equipped with body wash, shampoo and conditioner They have an outdoor fire pit area where I guess you can sun bathe?Overall it doesn’t have very many amenities, but it is very clean and I appreciate that

Peter DeNatale

Although other reviews have mentioned noise issues, I didn’t hear much throughout the night The hotel is next to a hospital so you may hear sirens but there wasn’t much road noise or noise from neighbors aside from that The rooms and lobby were very modern and well-kept

The layout of the bathroom was a little odd but not a huge factor There weren’t too many options for breakfast but better than just cereal The staff at the front desk was friendly but not very personable/engaging Parking in garage is free which was nice to keep my car tucked away Would definitely stay again

Juli Rasmussen

The hotel is newer and nice BUT, the traffic sounds made it impossible to get a good nights sleep 🙁 I was in room 526, so you have nice views, but the highway ruins it with the stress of seeing and hearing cars zooming by

The only dirty thing was the shower floor, not sure why it’s wearing so poorly?! You can see what I mean in the photo The breakfast was probably one of the worst I’ve had in a while – the absolute minimum and nothing packaged that you can take with you The front desk experience was quick, but strange I wasn’t acknowledged as being a Titanium member, not that I care, but I thought it was unusual The two women working weren’t very professional and chatted a lot Not that I mind people enjoying their work environment, but the overall interaction wasn’t great Maybe I’m just tired from not getting enough sleep there 😉

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

the room was super spacious and the bed was super comfortable!! our room had a small kitchen fully stocked with everything you could possibly need, pots, pans, plates, cups, forks, spoons, etc! i was so sad we were only there for 1 night breakfast was better than expected with a great variety and was actually really tasty! we loved this place so much and will definitely be returning!!! ONLY downside was that there was a $250 deposit that i was unaware of, didn’t find out until i checked my bank statement but it was refunded after checking out

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

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!

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

Overall very pleased with this hotel The room was clean and the staff very kind Loved seeing so many other dogs

Felt very safe while hereI would love to see how the hotel changes following the upcoming renovation It would be great if there could be sheer curtains as in addition to the provided black out curtains for privacy Breakfast also could have used some fresh fruit Otherwise very pleased with our stay!

Richard Fountain

Very solid experience with our large group Smooth check-in, rooms were clean and well-prepared One room had weak A/C so the window had to be open at night to cool it down

Very good breakfast layout Pool and hot tub were excellent! Hotel pays very good attention to vehicle and personal security; private security personnel patrol periodically overnight and keycard access is required to enter the building after 8pm

Shanon Craudell

Extremely friendly and professional staff, clean and spacious rooms

highly recommend The only critique I have is the need to address the lack of signage for their entry I stayed at a horrible hotel across the street a week previously because I failed to notice that the LA Quinta was there Bright signage would be helpful for tired travelers to see when seeking a nice room to rest their head

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!

Loretta Rodriguez

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

Jocelyn Pace

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

I was skeptical to stay as I saw multiple previous reviews regarding this property, unfortunately they were right on I arrived to what appeared to be black mold in the bathroom Asked if housekeeping could come by to clean it up, they said it would take a while

They never showed up I attempted to eat downstairs next to the water feature only to be told by the restaurant staff that I couldn’t eat there and to move, they said it was a health concern I found it ironic how what appeared to be black mold in the room wasn’t an issue, yet the eating a commercial food product in the lobby was No other persons were dining and I wasn’t at a restaurant table, I was seated at a Lobby table in the water feature area Ventilation air is dirty, leaving marks on the ceiling Bathroom floor had scum and curtains were old/dirty They were out of laundry supplies and couldn’t answer when they’d restock Their afternoon snacks were pathetic Some chips and hummus Why even do it? The jacuzzi had a platform built over it, the staff stated it was permanently shut down Only good thing was the cooks at breakfast worked hard and had a nice attitude This property is very poorly managed and shouldn’t be allowed to be a Hilton property They have this advertised as a 5 star property, that is comical It wouldn’t even make a 3 star with how it’s run and the current condition Very disappointed

Gwen Dedman

We enjoyed our stay at Embassy Suites by Hilton Albuquerque The hotel clerk was very friendly and helpful The Breakfast made-to-order was delicious, especially the omelet

The pool was nice Maybe just one recommendation for the hotel to get a heated pool It was kind of cold Other than that, our stay was pleasant and we’d most definitely be back

Dena McClung

Mixed ReviewI was here for a conference, and brought my elderly cat with me because she has special needsFirst, the good stuff

The room was clean, well-appointed, and comfortable The breakfast was quite good, especially the made-to-order omelets and pancakes Those ladies rocked! Having a Starbucks on site was nice The public spaces were pleasant and clean, and the water features were so nice to sit near, especially when I was reading a book while eatingNow, the not-so-good stuff The conference space was freezing I had to buy a sweatshirt to put on simply to survive the presentations, especially if I was seated in the rear of the ballroom You could have hung meat in there!The internet for the conference space was not adequate for the number of people who attended our conferenceIf you have an electric or plug-in hybrid car, forget about plugging it in while you’re paying $15 per night to park There’s no charging availableAnd last, but certainly not least, be VERY CAREFUL IF YOU HAVE A PET I was explicit at check-in that I DID NOT WANT maid service during my stay, because my cat would be loose in my room I told the front desk personnel that I would come get towels if I needed them But upon returning to my room one day, I saw that the door was wide open and ran into a maid leaving as I arrived! Fortunately my cat had not escaped But upon contacting housekeeping, they informed me that the front desk personnel had stated that I had put in an order for service on that date, which was absolutely incorrect These are the kinds of details that are extremely important to guests
