Verified Guest from Tempe, AZ US rated La Quinta Inn & Suites Albuquerque Journal Ctr NW 10 out of 10 on July 24, 2010
"The beds were great. We didn't get any shampoo. I never bring shampoo when I travel and always expect to have a small bottle in my room. I don't know if this was an oversight or if this a new policy. If it's a new policy, the old one was better. All in all though a good stay."
Beverley from Apache Creek Nm, US rated La Quinta Inn & Suites Albuquerque Journal Ctr NW 8 out of 10 on December 21, 2009
"While there is certainly nothing wrong with the hotel - it's on line with a Hampton type hotel.... and the staff are very nice and had answers to all my questions - directions to restaurants and shopping areas... some of the other patrons were a little scary looking (I don't intend to be snobbish about it but I'm pretty cognizant of my surroundings especially since I am a single woman in an unfamilliar area). It is very conveniently located - right off 25 - and I'd probably stay there again because I know where it is in relation to places I need to do business - but in honesty - I really do prefer the hotels with kitchenettes."
