The good points. This motel looked clean and kept up. The Wi-Fi was great. The bad points - 1) there was no TV remote in the room. I asked for one and the desk clerk said she would bring one up. Turned out she was the only one on duty so eventually I went by the desk and picked it up. It didn't work. 2) The lock on the back door was not 'on'. I mentioned this since I had things stolen on my last trip to Albuquerque. They said that it would be locked in the evening. It never was. 3) It was about 90 degrees out and the AC in the room was not working. When reported the clerk said that there was no one to fix it and she could down grade me to a room with it working. I didn't take her up on that offer. Later when I saw the clerk outside about 9 PM she said another room became available that was the same as mine. I did decide to take her up on it since my room was well over 80 degrees by then. She nicely helped me move. 4) New room was fine except that half of the TV channels were 'not working' for some reason. ?? 5) When I went to take a shower and started using the shampoo that was on the tub I found that it was not shampoo but hand lotion. Was not amused at having to get out and find some in my toiletry bag. The bottom line - The desk clerks were all very nice BUT - to have all these things go wrong was simply unacceptable! I don't plan on staying here again. I find it very hard to imagine leaving one person working on a Friday night and not having anyone to do maintenance on call. Very sad.

We frequently stay at La Quintas because they are dog friendly. We have previously had very good luck, but the rooms at this one are awful! I believe one their website it mentions the rooms have been recently redone, but I think "recently" is used very loosely. The whole bathroom was nasty! Another reason why we liked La Quintas is because we like to have a refrigerator, but there wasn't one! I can't comment about breakfast because even though it was free, we just wanted to get the heck out of here!

I got in after midnight due to car troubles, but the staff was excellent and friendly. I had to get up early to make a meeting, so i didn't stay long the next day either. The time I did spend at the hotel was great. The beds were comfortable, the pillows not to fat, and the A/C was significantly quieter than most other hotels. Lack of time at the hotel brings it down a point since I didn't experience much beyond the room.

The Management and Staff at this location are outstanding....they give 110%. The rooms are quiet, clean and comfortable. The selection at breakfast was fabulous and fresh. I would recommend LaQuinta Albuquerque NW for business or pleasure travel...

No problems here. This place is a no brainer to stay at. The front desk was pleasant and courteous. Very dog friendly. The bed was the best out of all slept in while on cross country trip. The rooms are well maintained.
