... we are learning to wait to be excited until after we see a site. Every place we go is a new adventure and for that we can get excited. The trails were relatively easy and so I was able to have a nice walk. George went to the top of the volcanoes, but these volcanoes didn't have craters and certainly there was no lava. (ok, seriously I knew there would be no ...

... Incidentally, the museum has no information about the Soviet atomic espionage that took place in New Mexico. Klaus Fuchs, Ted Hall, and David Greenglass provided ample information to their KGB couriers during 1944-45 about the bombs being developed at Los Alamos. The Soviet plutonium bomb that was exploded in August 1949 was an exact copy of 'Fat Man'. Why this strange omission in the museum's otherwise exhaustive displays? But in ...

Yesterday I faced my fears on the mountain, but today I faced my fears on the road... I actually drove! Now Bob can't say he drove this entire trip because I took the wheel for approximately 20 miles. (Which is actually about .4% of our over 5,000 mile trip, but who's counting, right?!) I drove so he could take a break and rest without having to stop for a while, but then when the sign came up that ...

... that was at a great price. When we were at the ruins we met a couple from New Mexico who own a ranch. They had with them two puppies about eight weeks old. These pups had fur that was blue. The breed is from Australia and the guy said this is the only type of dog he has ever owned because they are great cattle herding dogs. They were so well behaved – no barking and they listened to the couple. The name of the breed is ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews MCM Elegante Hotel Albuquerque

    Outstanding

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Never again.

    from

    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!!!!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    OK - but wouldn't stay there again

    from

    We stayed at the MCM Elegante in Albuquerque for 2 nights in October.

    Good Value at the Elegante

    from

    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.

    Good value, convenient location

    from

    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.

    Excellent experience at MCM Elgante

    from

    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.
