... took one. Walked for about a half a mile along the River Loop, did see some of the "mighty Rio Grande". Not very impressive now, but I am sure during a normal spring thaw, there is a lot of water available. Don't think that will be the case this year. They had a couple of early snows, before Christmas, but almost none since. Then, we came back to Old Town to see the Natural ...
... School and others. The objective of the school was to "kill the Indian to save the man" by taking Pueblo children from their families and teaching them the white mans ways. The school operated from 1881 to 1989. It was an attempt to "drive the culture" out of the children (courtesy of the U.S. Government) - another sad story!

I realize I have a little catching up to do :) We arrived in Albuquerque on the 9th and spent the next week at my mom's parents house. My grandparents....Kaitlyn's great-grandparents...4 generations in 1 home. We really spent this week just enjoying our family, which means I didn't stop to write every day, so I am going to sum it all up in one post.
Our first full day there, Wednesday, was pretty lazy. In the morning we washed clothes and ran ...

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.
