Good 7.8 From 133 reviews

Very good 8.0
Everything about the staff was great. Our towels were changed often and the lobby staff were friendly and informative. There were some stains on the bathroom wall that must’ve missed a cleaning, they didn’t look permanent. The room had a stale smoke smell. I know it’s not their fault, but during the hottest parts of the day, it was difficult not to notice. I would recommend that the AC be turned on before guests arrive, if possible. It took from 6 pm til 2 am for our room to finally cool off. It was miserable the first night. The rest of the nights were very cold and we slept great.

Home away from home.
Wonderful staff! Loved our room and how each day it way cleaned and neat. Appreciated this location as it was near the Convention Center and other event venues.

Just as promised
As long as you remember that it's Econolodge and not a Hilton, it's exactly as expected. The room was functional, not luxury. The pool was clean. Even though it's right next to I-25, it's quiet.

First Time in New Mexico
Very clean room and helpful staff. Had no issues our entire stay and it was in walking distance of the arts district area.
