The location was quite convenient. The shuttle service to and from the Old Town was very nice. I enjoyed the breakfast. A fresh paint on the room doors would be nice. The interior of the room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and nice.

OK but not great

We arrived late in the evening. The hotel staff was accommodating and the hotel was easy to find (of course with google maps, what isn't nowadays). The real disappointment, as far as amenities, was the complete lack of ice machines. Our standard procedure, once we're in the room and basically unpacked is to go fill up the ice bucket and get ready for some in-room relaxation. Ice machine on our floor (3rd) didn't work. Ice machine on the 2nd floor didn't work. Ice machine on the 4th floor didn't work. My wife went to the front desk to complain and was told Oh, well the one on the 5th floor is working! She went to the 5th floor. Ice machine not working. She returned to the desk: Do you have any ice anywhere? In the kitchen? Laundry? Manager's office? None anywhere in the building. Seriously. Bottom line: don't stay here if you enjoy ice in your room. On the bright side, the breakfast was very good lots of choices, eggs and sausage, etc. Excellent bed. If their amenities had been better or if the staff had been more forthright about the problem, I would have rated them higher. Probably will find another hotel next time in Albuquerque.

Hotel Blue

The room was clean and had been remodeled. It was comfortable, located well in the downtown, and the value was great!! I would recommend it!

OK at best

Staff, shuttle service & internet access all great. Room is in need of overhaul, all looking very worn, though bed was comfy. Heater was really noisy and outdoor access not good, didn't feel safe. Location is bad for outdoor access as DT Albuquerque did not instill a feeling of safety. Overall the hotel was ok...but the location was awful.

Doesn't match up with Trip advisor rating

Hotel blue is way downtown. Room was updated nicely with nice beds and tv and was okay. Location was sketchy at best and outside hotel appearance in great need of updating and cleaning. Shows you can't always trust online room ratings. Stayed because couldn't cancel in time. Will not stay again.

Ok For the Price

Picked me up at the airport ok. Drivers have limited English Knowledge.Hotel is Not Fancy,old,run down,not like the picture.Not well taken care of.Bed was ok.Room was clean.I never ate breakfast there. Italian restaurant across the street was good.A little high priced on any add on,or Deserts,Beware.I'm disabled,can't walk far,so I never went anywhere around the area.Pool was not open yet.It's right downtown,good location if that's where you need to go.If you like a real nice Fancy,very clean place,don't stay here.

Effecient hotel living at great price!

I had read reviews of this hotel & with guarded optimism took their great price. I recieved exactly what I expected. The room was plain, clean & effecient. I had a great king bed, clean bathroom, large satellite TV, frig, microwave. I wanted a nice place to crash after a tourist-type day and it was. They had a plain but good breakfast, clean, comfortable lobby, lobby computers, cookies, papers. Nice helpful folks. I had a great stay meeting exactly my expectations!!

Unbeatable location for the price

I was at a conference, which was in another hotel. The service and staff was wonderful. Everyone I met went out of his or her way to give me the best service possible. I will recommend Hotel Blue to be compared with one of the five star hotels.
