Best Western Plus Rio Grande Inn

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed three nights for a family reunion. Everything you would expect (In a good way) from a hotel in this price range. The restaurant was a great compliment to this property. Free coupon for breakfasts was nice; rest of the menu was fine. Room service great. Front desk staff was professional and helpful. Rooms clean and comfortable with a NM design motif.

Clean, great room, pet friendly, and great location to food.

I don't typically stop in large cities when I drive cross country. I feel it is less safe, especially when I'm alone. But driving through the desert, I knew my options may be limited, so I stopped here. The parking lot was secure, fenced. Near the interstate. Easy access. Clean. Friendly staff. Easy check in and out. Nice breakfast.

Great location!! We stopped in Old Town Albuquerque for a night during a 2 week road trip and found the Best Western Rio Grande to be exactly what we were hoping for - easy to find, close walk to town, super comfy bed, exceptionally friendly staff, very clean rooms. We will stay again when in the area!

Very nice hotel near the freeway and the old historical district. The made-to-order breakfast was top notch. We would stay there again.

Spacious room with large bathroom with Rollin shower for wheelchair. Excellent arrangement.

Right off of I-40, close to old town, many tourist attractions. Great staff, helpful and friendly. Good food, reasonably priced, nice bar. Comfortable beds, clean, well maintained. My only complaint it no laundry facility for guests. They do have valet service for laundry and dry cleaning but it is way too expensive.

Nice staff. Very good location. Rooms always cleaned well. Showing its age a bit. Didn't use restaurant. Breakfast vouchers can be used in bar or any food items. That's nice. Quite a few dogs in hotel. (I'm not a dog person.) Really no complaints about the place. We've stayed several times. Very predictable and good price.

Very happy. Nice and clean. No weird hotel smell to it. Pleasant staff. Short ride to Old Town. Close to a highway. Would definitely use again.

Good value for money. Clean and very helpful and friendly staff

Rooms were very good, and bed comfortable. Staff were always pleasant. Wi Fi reception very poor on the fourth floor. Were quite amazed one morning at breakfast, when the gentleman clearing tables dropped a bottle of tomato ketchup on the floor and it broke and splattered on the floor with broken glass, but he didn't clear it up. It was still there half an hour later when we had finished and people had to walk around it!

We had a change in travel plans and needed a place to stay the night before going to the Balloon Fiesta. We made our reservations on line and hoped that we would not be disappointed. The hotel was easy to find, right off Interstate 4. The girl that checked us in was very friendly and explained everything in detail, including the food vouchers for the restaurant. I felt very safe staying there the grounds were very secure. The room was clean and had everything we needed for the night. If we were staying in the area again we would certainly consider the Best Western Plus.

The hotel had a great location and met all expectations

the hotel is located a little bit to far from the centre of the city. The room was dark and quite dirty. we will not book this hotel once more.

This is the second time I stayed at a Best Western and I'm very pleased with my experience. First, the room was clean (they even had a "Fresh" bag over the remote control to demonstrate that it was clean, which was a huge hit with my OCD bf). The room was also very comfortable with a wall heater to keep us warm. The only issue I had was with the TV: I had a problem changing the channels and after it would get stuck on a channel that I didn't want, the TV would just turn off on its own. Other than that, the hotel was great for the price.

The hotel was very nice and the staff was really polite.

We stayed here for the balloon fiesta. It was centrally located to all the sites. Hotel staff was great. Breakfast coupons were included and food was good.

Conveniently located to the freeway and old town ABQ. $5 breakfast voucher given daily. Beds were comfortable and room clean. No desk in the room. Internet connection did not permit adult sites. It felt like a really nice Motel 6.

This was my third stay there. It is convenient, clean and has a very good breakfast. The staff are very nice and always give me a first floor room. I will stay there every time I'm in town.

The hotel was clean and comfortable. Good Location, easy access to highways and things to do. I liked the breakfast voucher which allowed you to choose a free breakfast off a set menu.

Thank you for the kind words and the well thought review. We do use a local dry cleaner for our valet service and they do set the prices for pickup and delivery of laundered items. They service most of the hotels in Old Town/Downtown area. We will keep an eye out for other choices. Safe travels. Anthony, Director of Sales.
