I was aware that renovations were going on, but chose this hotel for a conference where I knew I wouldn't be spending much more time there than sleeping.
Upon arriving, the staff that greeted me were friendly, apologetic and as accommodating as they could be for the fact that many of the amenities were unavailable (pool, fitness room, ice and vending machines, etc). They did let me know that if I needed any of those, they would contact their sister hotel on the same property (Day's Inn) and I could use their facilities, which isn't completely convenient but is a good attempt at compensation.
Only 3rd floor rooms were available during my stay. Heavy paint fumes in the hallway of my floor had me concerned but it was really noticable in my room. The room itself was mostly clean, though there were details that were still unfinished. (taped off areas in bath, missing glass tops of desk, nightstand, missing fridge, etc)
Thankfully WiFi worked well my entire stay. The same cannot be said of my keycard which needed replaced every night of my stay. Not a big deal but after a 14 hour day, trudging back down to the lobby was a pain after getting to my room.
Breakfast was typical, if a little disappointing looking. The eggs seemed a bit gritty and the bacon was sad looking. I ended up passing in favor of Dennys nearby, but maybe they were okay.

Read reviews and was a bit leery but my experience was very good. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Some signs of wear on exterior carpet but for the price the important things were very good. Water was nice and hot. Convenient location. Microwave/fridge were nice to have. Quiet even though right on major highway. My only complaints really were that the workout room was not open d/t broken equipment and the laundry needs to have soap machine to purchase. Again, minor things given the low rates.

We received excellent customer service. Checking-in was easy; our reservation was found immediately, and the front desk agent was very pleasant and helpful. Our room was clean, and welcoming. Morning breakfast was nice; a large variety of food choices. Tables and counters were nice and clean. The lady who was in charge of the breakfast was indeed very pleasant and made us welcome with fresh pot of coffee. We want to give the staff five stars for their great service. We will definitely come again.
El Camino Real, the colonial road that ran through Bernalillo, once led to Mexico City. The community’s rich history is reflected at the Coronado State Monument, the site conquistador Francisco Vásquez de Coronado is thought to have encountered in 1540 while searching for the fabled Seven Cities of Gold. Bernalillo is also known for its annual wine festival, the largest in New Mexico.
