Los Angeles, California
July 3, 2007
Off of I-40 is Motel 6. I’ve stayed in several of these motels on my trip across the country, but this one was by far the cleanest one and safest (or so I felt) of all of the hotels I been to so far. Although the motel is just off of the interstate none of the rooms are actually close enough to the highway to hear the passing cars. The main lobby/reception area is by the road. Here you can find brochures on everything that can be found not only in Albuquerque, but Taos, Santa Fe, and the surrounding area as day trips.
In front of the motel is the pool. It was one of the larger ones that I have seen at a Motel 6. The water was extremely blue; so I knew that it was well keep. There are a few chairs to sit at along the pool, but with the hot New Mexican sun shinning the chairs of little concern.
The rooms were a little small. There were two beds in my room one bed was pushed up against the air-conditioner leaving a path between the two beds. The rooms are equipped with the basic: two beds, a dresser, mirror, TV, and bed stand. The rooms were extremely clean and the staff was wonderful. The room itself was around $50 a night.
