... way. We had some dinner and watched 'Neighbours' with Zac Efron which was such a funny movie! Sleep time at Walmart now. 12th May Monday The car was making bad scraping sounds on the front left side so we found a mechanics luckily and booked it in that day. Whilst our car was getting fixed Steph and Matt had there at to drive us around to look at the original 'Breaking Bad' series house where Walt and Skylar lived. We also looked at the car wash they owned and ...
... big deal the charro is, and the ten "tests" of charro competitions. Interesting. Then, we planned to take a walking tour of Old Town, but tours are not given during winter. So, decided to drive north on Rio Grande Blvd., paralleling the river, to see what kind of vantage points were available. Went into the Rio Grande Nature Center. They had several walking loops down by the river, ...
... you also have to try to coat the sides between the boards. Both Jim and John were very complimentary about the result. Now, Diane won't have to worry about the deck for the next couple of years. Using primer I also painted the raw wooden boards in the bathroom. Finally, I cleared up the driveway bordering on the neighbors property. I usually don't do much ...
... the whole rear end to tremble (bouncing up and down). We stopped in the city of Tucumcari to see what options we had, but unfortunately the closest place that could repair his motorcycle was in Albuquerque; 160+/- miles away. The motorcycle was ride-able but needless to say it was not the most comfortable ride and he had to do so at speeds not exceeding 60mph in a 75mph speed limit road, which was not ideal considering ...
... I wasn't going to pass it up. At first we were all careful not wanting to break the candy cane. But after some pictures to remember it by, we all started taking our share. It was really good and just one more way it felt like Christmas.
We kept checking Radiator Springs but it wasn't open yet so we went and rode Toy Story. Greg got 144,900 and won for our car! First time! Stephanie got 143,900 and wasn't super pleased her dad beat her. Just a bit ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Howard Johnson Express Inn Albuquerque
My husband and I stayed at the Howard Johnson for 3 nights during the International Balloon Fiesta. The hotel is just off Hwy 25 and a short distance from the park. The room was quiet, very clean and had wifi in the rooms and a computer available in the lobby. Breakfast includes eggs, sausage and hash brown and was available even at 4 am for a quick start before going to the park. Although prices probably run higher during the Fiesta, they were much lower than other hotels and a very good value.
Ok for short stay
The lobby and staff were the best feature of this hotel. The hall carpets needed to be swept as this gives a negative first impression. The rooms appeared to be clean but the beds definitely left something to be desired. The breakfast was fine for a motel of this quality. There was easy access off and on the expresway. I would not want to stay here for an extended stay but for an overnight it is ok.
Good value, clean room with what appeared to be new carpet, average free breakfast, internet in lobby...negative- the exercise room consisted of only a treadmill, cycle and a leg lift/dips rack
I just spent another wonderful 11 days at this hotel, I wouldn't stay anywhere else and I hated to leave, everytime I go there I feel so at home. You couldn't ask for nicer people, they are all so friendly and this hotel is incredibly clean and each time there is always something new, they are doing a beautiful job in re-decorating and constantly making improvements! They serve a wonderful breakfast and have fresh baked cookies every afternoon .
We stayed two nights here based on Tripadvisor reviews. Don't be fooled into expecting a lot, but it is an okay place to stay. The staff is very hospitable and they are the best part of the hotel. They really do make you feel at home. The breakfast is good, but average. The room was fairly spacious and had new carpet. The room was clean. Internet service available to guests in the lobby as were warm cookies in the afternoon. Also a microwave and coffee/tea 24/7 were appreiciated. The down sides: decor was boring, the hallways needed to be vacuumed and they gave a poor first impression, some wear and tear of wallpaper in some places, and finally, the picture of the hotel on the website is a major misrepresentation. That mountain can't be seen from the rooms and the best scenery to be had is from the parking lot behind the storage units and trailer park. The north end of town is quite nice and appears to be growing, but this hotel is on the hwy and it is not a peaceful location. I recommend it, especially for the price...but don't expect a lot.
Great room at a great price
Wow... while on a roadtrip through the Southwest we randomly selected this hotel based upon the price (as a broke college student this is an important factor) When we arrived we were suprised to find a wonderful hotel that provided many amenities that other higher priced hotels did not. We were greeted by friendly staff members that checked us in and told us about the free wireless internet as well as the complimentary hot breakfast. They also had warm freshly baked cookies in the lobby as well as fresh brewed coffee (great after driving all day). Overall I would say that this was the best hotel that we stayed at during our 2 week roadtrip. We will definitely go back again.
Excellent facilities and staff
stayed here last summer whist visiting relatives in abq had a fantastic time found all staff friendly and helpful. rooms well furnished and clean. would stay here again
I have stayed before this is now owned by new owners and the improvements really show. I got a hot breakfast included in the regular room rate and the staff was very friendly. I will be back over and over again.
Avoid at all costs
Dirty hallways, smelly room, a single employee in the entire place at 9:30PM (who spoke very little English). No sheets on one bed, no pillow on the other. Worn out carpet and broken refrigerator. "Continental breakfast" consisted of a single stale donut, weak coffee (the orange juice machine was broken).
I wish I were kidding, but this is all literally true.
