... girl can hope!) Did I mention the wind? It was chilly and windy, so we decided we would take our picnic home and have it for dinner.
We headed through town and decided to try the Frontier Restaurant, which Sonja had also recommended as a fun place to eat. We really enjoyed the experience. The food was good and very reasonable (which always makes George ...
... Albuquerque has day time temperatures in the 90s, and I look forward to further exploring New Mexico. Instead of heading directly to Albuquerque I took the back roads this time. On one 36 mile stretch along NM-509 I counted 5 cars and 2 bikers driving in the opposite direction - one car every 7 miles. The landscape was desolate with hardly anything but unspoiled nature. ...
... a log to get to the very back of the cave. The guide, Sarah, said the best photos were taken with no lights, so all of our headlamps got turned off and we were in the pitch black. All I could think was, 'So going to die!' lol! The hike back up was steeply uphill and almost killed me! Lunch was at Denny's with a few of the Contiki girls, Amanda, Laura and Io. I had a sampler plate with onion rings, chicken and mozzarella sticks which I hadn't tried before. Stringy ...
... didn't really know - coming back to our seats to flirt with him. Coming in to Albuquerque we saw mostly brown from the airplane window.
Once I landed and went to the next gate for our flight to Seattle, I texted Coleen and she and mom had just landed. They came off their flight and met right there at gate A11 for the next leg of our journey - another 3 hour flight. It was already an exhausting day but very exciting!
... attention from the locals who have to disuaded and not too subtly. Then at last we arrive at our camp site, this is really nice, so are the people but very quiet at this time of the year, begs the question why we are still allocated the furthest site from the showers etc with others standing empty, I am sure somebody has contacted them before we arrive about Terry and Dave and there snoring. Anyway wine and scotch opened off to Grand Canyon ...

Historical Traveler Reviews MCM Elegante Hotel Albuquerque
Great value. Very comfortable beds, hotel has been recently re-done. Free breakfast, omelets, waffles, etc. Free drinks at night were a nice touch. Staff was real friendly, prompt service.
Old, dirty and worn out
My company put me in this hotel twice and I refuse to stay again. It is old, dirty and the industrial cleaning solution smell is overwhelming. The beds are not bad but the linens are worn so it negates the experience. The staff is friendly but they just have a bad product.
This is an older property that has only two things going for it, the beds and the staff. The furniture in the rooms is in bad shape, I tried to clean off the table in my room and then realized it wasn't dirty, it was very worn. Since I was only staying one night, I decided to tough it out since I couldn't find anything else near the airport on short notice that seemed any better. I spent the afternoon at the mall to avoid spending any more time than necessary in the room. I had chosen the hotel based on positive reviews that I read on this site, but after having stayed here I don't know what those people were thinking. I travel a great deal for work and have to say this is one of the worst properties I have had the misfortune to stay in.
Terrible! Blood in the shower!!!!
This is one of the worst hotels I have EVER stayed at. The room was filthy. The wallpaper was peeling off. The carpet was horribly dirty. To top it all off, there was BLOOD splattered on the shower curtain in the bathroom. I was horrified, and the staff didn't seem to care. The manager said, "I'm sorry about that. I'll take care of it for the next guest." Obviously that was NO help to me. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE. IT IS TERRIBLE!!!!
Great beds, little else
great beds, but you better ask to stay in the newer section, the "tower" even then, peeling wallpaper is the norm. a bit dated for a supposedly updated recently hotel, even the "newer" section. the breakfast was "ok" but served on paper and styrofoam.
The hotel staff was totally unaware of what was happening, and could not tell me where the business center I had been told to go to was, in fact they did not know there was one.
We stayed at the MCM Elegante in Albuquerque for 2 nights in October.
Good Value at the Elegante
My wife and I visited Albuquerque to take in the annual Balloon Fiesta and booked a package which including four nights at the MCM Elegante. We were a little apprehensive, not being familiar with the hotel, but were very pleasantly surprised; the room was clean, of good size and did not smell of smoke, the bed was comfortable and the bath was adequately supplied with towels, soap and other sundries. A hot, tasty breakfast and a couple of happy hour drinks were included daily with the room. The hotel, while not a destination resort, is well maintained and centrally located near the interstate interchange and the price was reasonable. All in all we were pleased and plan to stay again when we visit Albuquerque.
I booked two standard rooms at the MCM Elegante for four nights, August 12-15, 2005. Through Expedia the rate for each room was $60/night. The MCM's location on the NE side of the I-25/I-40 junction was very convenient, and despite the proximity to I-40 traffic noise wasn't a problem. The room with the king bed had a "VIP" label outside, and was furnished better than the room with two double beds. The former room had a nice desk and a recliner. But all of the beds were very comfortable, and the furnishings were in good condition. The complimentary breakfast was very hearty. Being vegetarian I didn't try the bacon or sausage, but the potatoes, omelets and oatmeal were excellent, and the coffee was decent. The free evening cocktails were a nice touch but not worth rushing back for.
MCM Elegante is extremely nice!! My husband and I booked a 6 day vacation to Albuqurque June 28 - July 3, 2005. The trip was so inexpensive via Expedia that I was a bit worried about this hotel. I had never heard of this chain before. Airfare and hotel was only 295.00 per person from Dallas via American Airlines.
