Located only minutes away from Old Town Albuquerque, this hotel is situated near the Albuquerque Aquarium, National Museum of Nuclear Science and History and the ABQ BioPark Zoo. The Children’s Museum of Albuquerque can also be found nearby. After a day of touring the town, families can spend some quality time at the heated, indoor pool. The kids can swim and play while the adults relax and unwind. Pets are also welcome here so there is no need to leave any four legged family members at home. The comfortable guestrooms feature a king or two queen beds, a flat screen television and electrical outlets by the night stand so it’s convenient to charge devices. Some suites feature a mini-fridge and microwave as well. Complimentary Wi-Fi access is available in the guestrooms as well, making it convenient for the whole family to stay connected. Families will love to start the morning with the free continental breakfast.

From the outside the hotel doesn’t look like much, but don’t let that put you off. The hotel and room was very clean, staff was friendly, and the price was good. The hotel is on Route 66.

Not really a con, but if you have trouble climbing stairs then ask for a room on the first floor.
I stay here every year. The one thing I can count on is the consistency in Econolodge old town. A warm welcome and Fair priceing and a clean room after a 2000 mile train ride,I know I can count on it. I seen this place come out of a mess to a good place for family to stay. Location is excellent. 3 blocks to Old Town. 2 blocks to zoo. They have a very clean pool and area. Also have bikes you can rent. And the bus runs downtown. They do shuttle to help their customers. I come from Amtrak station and all I need is call on arrival. Very pet friendly but do tell them you have a pet. I highly recommend this motel. Elena hi. Yes I'm here. I got to say I read the reviews and laugh as I see through it. But as always the excellance you and John give is still there. My regards to the staff. They don't change but as me well another year older lol
