Reviews for El Vado Motel

We stayed 5 days and had a great time.. Their rooms are very nice and clean. They have a good size pool and an great outdoor area to hang out and also they have restaurants just outside the gate so very convenient. And the aquarium and botanical gardens are just across the street and old Town is just 5 minutes away or 20 minutes if you decide to walk. Really nice area for vacation. Staff was so polite, friendly and helpful with any questions we asked.

Love the look of the place. Hospitality was a bit lacking. Biggest recommendation would be to show up early, and not to check in late. The desk closes at 10:00 and if anything's wrong with the room, they may not be around to fix it. They're also apparently some popular food options if you get there early enough. The city does close by 7:30 or 8:00.

STAY HERE! Seriously, if you are in Albuquerque, this is the only place to stay. It's a refurbished old motel on the old Route 66 and they did an excellent job -- the El Vado has a motel vibe but it's beautifully done and everything is nice, clean and well maintained. If you've ever stayed in an old motel... it's not gonna be like that. :-) also, there is a lovely outdoor food court with some great food on the property, a craft beer bar (NOT KIDDING), artisan ice cream and paletas,...read full review
