The major hotels along I-25 north of the I-40 intersection (at least two or three exits north, best not to stay right next to the intersection) are generally quite safe, if a bit uninspiring. We frequently stay at the Nativo Lodge when overnighting in town prior to an early-morning flight out of ABQ and are quite happy with it -- fully adequate for safety, more local color than most inb that area, decent value for dollar. There are other possibilities that are similarly satisfactory.
What about around the cottonwood mall area? Just in that broad general area- any safe hotels around there?
Thanks for your input. But is the area safe? Where you mentioned hotels are?
Thank you! Still looking.
