We didn't have time to explore the Zoo and Aquarium, but can definitely say the gardens are well worth the stop. We really enjoy the pond and water the waterfowl after 7+ hours of driving. I hope to make it back here soon to explore...More

There is not a hotel at the botanical gardens. So, not sure what hotel you're talking about, but Albuquerque does have a pretty good bus system.
