I was a bit freaked out when I realized where this motel was. When I was a kid this was a hooker motel of course it wasn't Econolodge back then. As they have reclaimed downtown area they have cleaned it up this area wasn't at all the same as it was in my youth. I felt safe and the hotel it's self was clean and updated. The shower and bed were comfortable decent and comfortable. That said it is still right next to 25 and was a bit loud.

This Econo Lodge is conveniently located and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is a good value.

Very convenient to hospital and good restruantd. Nothing fancy, didnt need that.

The staff was nice and helpful. Location is convenient to the University of NM, where I was spending 3 days. Room and bed very comfortable, with lots of room. Convenient parking near room. Wi-Fi could have had a better connection.

Located right next to noisy freeway. Room was filthy! Only 2 towels, nothing else. Bed was mushy. Lights didn't work in room. Continental breakfast was toast or cereal. When I came it to check out, the clerk was busy helping himself to the breakfast. Disgusting place.

Location+price=pretty good bargain. From here, you can walk to places up or down Central, the RailRunner is close by, etc. Staff was super nice. It was quiet enough, despite proximity to freeway. And they accept pets, which is a plus. Room wasn't super clean (it had that residual smoke smell), but I've stayed in much, much worse. So it passes. Walk down the street and eat at Farina, or the Grove. You won't be sorry.

Excellent continental breakfast, good location to buses around corner and across the street to take you most anywhere. Good restaurants down the street within a couple blocks. Great place to stay if you ride Amtrak and don't have a car while visiting.

Good location close to downtown Abq; I like the pillows, nice and soft; Free Continental breakfast was lacking -juice machine broken, mainly cereal or toast, not much selection; I paid for two queen beds but we got two full beds, I wanted to complain and get another room, but husband was too tired to move rooms. Overall just satisfactory.

Two blocks south of the Route 50 Bus to/from the Airport - get off at Lovelace Hospital. 15 minute walk to either downtown, or Univ of New Mexico. Nearby neighborhoods are residential. Good, cheap bus service - the local Route 66 stops next to the motel, the express ABQ Ride Green and Red lines stop on the other side of the I-25 freeway outside Presbyterian Hospital.

Stayed there for a business trip. Wasn't anything to fancy but it was cheap and clean. Nothing to complain about when you'r just sleeping between meetings.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are very quiet and clean. A great place to stay for the money. I will definitely be staying there again.

The downtown EconoLodge is centrally located in Albuquerque. The on-ramp to I-25 is at the intersection to head north or south. I-40 is just a bit north. The room is large with a desk, king sized bed, TV and bureau space. The alcove for luggage and hanging clothes is appropriately situated. The bathroom is roomy complete with a full-sized tub. I enjoyed my stay!
