The hotel was excellent place to stay. The hotel was clean and they even put a microwave in my room as I requested. The location was great too, it was next to old town, the freeway and eating places. It was safe and I couldn't hear the freeway, very quiet place. Most of the customers were traveling vacation people. I...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 March 2017

This is the hotel of choice for my wife and I each year when we visit New Mexico. The rooms are clean, quiet and well maintained. The hotel staff from to front desk on is consistently polite and friendly. The hotel is located close (very Close) to 25 but freeway noise is basically non-existent. There is an excellent bar and...

The hotel is small and the rooms not spacious but the free breakfast, the central location, close to Old Town, and the free shuttle to museums and the airport makes this a great choice for visiting Albuquerque. The staff were friendly and accommodating which is always a plus!

This was our second visit to the Rio Grande Best Western. It came up twice as a match for a reasonable 3 star hotel on Hotwire in this neighborhood. It was $264 for three nights, which I thought was very reasonable. It is easy driving, and not far walking distance to Old Town. Starbucks across the street, and another nice...

I stayed at the Best Western Plus Rio Grande for a business conference meeting. The staff at the hotel was great. It was near Old Towne for walking distance because I didn't have a car to get around. I love that the hotel had a shuttle service and that is another reason why I selected the hotel. I enjoyed my...

The front desk and staff were very nice. The location is great, within walking distance to old town. Plus there are a couple of restaurants even closer. However, other guests arriving back to their rooms at 2 AM woke us up. The TV in the next door could be heard clearly at that hour. Not sure how you fix that,...

Our first time in Albuquerque. Restaurant waiter Johnathan was not only efficient and courteous in his profession duties, but he took the time to guide us to certain destinations during our four day stay at this hotel. Johnathan is an extraordinary employee who proves that service is as much, if not more, important than the product. he serves. This property...

We stayed here on our way west to visit family in Arizona. Booked reservation via their website. Location was a little hard to get to in rush hour traffic but we made it okay. The room was nice and the beds were very comfortable. They have a restaurant in the hotel where we ate both dinner and breakfast. The food...

I stay in Albuquerque quite often and have tried several hotel chains. None of the compare to Best Western Plus Rio Grande Inn. The staff is so hospitable, the hotel is clean and spacious, the food is amazing. I enjoyed my breakfast meals immensely.
