The people of the Hotel Blue were lovely. The hotel was clean and the continental breakfast was ok. The rooms were kind of cramped and quite outdated, but the beds were very comfortable. Overall, ok but not great, except the people😄

Location was fantastic. Great customer service. The outside is not the best but inside you will be very pleased. Excellent breakfast. This is a little gem that we will return. Wonderful night sleep, good and quiet.

I stayed one night for a combination of business and pleasure, and chose this hotel because of the location and value, and it didn't disappoint! This hotel is close to the downtown area, so you can walk to restaurants, and close to the highway, so it's a short, easy drive to the airport. Also very close to the old town...

Flew in late for a trade show at convention center for the next day. All staff from phone reservations, front desk and shuttle drivers were pleasant and professional. Breakfast space was very nice, can't duly comment on the food itself. My room was clean, comfortable and well maintained. Overall, an excellent value in a lively, if not colorful downtown area....

Clean comfy room, full breakfast, helpful front desk staff, all day shuttle, fresh baked cookies available for guests, clean safe pool area and gym. Some areas are a little dated but our overall experience is the reason for the rating.

Spent a couple nights in the hotel, but more a motel really. Friendly staff and rooms large and clean. Free secure parking, but guess may get full up during peak months. Good breakfast. Entrance to rooms is via common balconies around outside of hotel. Ask for a room with view over central Downtown. The motel is situated in middle of...

We loved this hotel! It's in a cool downtown ABQ location. We rolled in with no reservation snapped up a room for 80 something bucks, which included free secure parking in their gated lot. It is an older hotel that has been fixed up nicely while keeping with the original decor, it has lots of charm. 'Loved the rooms, we...

As a community group that does policy work, we often hold gatherings in a variety of places across the state. The Hotel Blue exceeded all expectations and allowed this to be our most successful and seamless event yet. The staff were extremely helpful, especially William at the front desk who was always available for my many questions. Sunil, we could...
