    • One Way from ABQ to Taos

      Taos Apr 4, 2014 at 12:46 PM

      two of us are flying to Albuquerque on June 3rd and need to get to Taos that same day to meet up with other travelers. We only need one way to Taos that day. I have only seen one shuttle that makes this trip and it's Twin Hearts. They don't pick up the phone to inquire or reserve and the reviews are just dreadful about them. To rent a car one way from ABQ to Taos is very expensive as well. do you have any other suggestions?

    • Safe Reasonable Hotel

      by jmcclelland Online Now Feb 15, 2014 at 11:58 PM

      My daughter and I will be traveling through New Mexico next month. Albuquerque is our half way point of the trip and would like to stay overnight. The last time I stayed there, my son and I just picked a convenient motel off the interstate. BIG MISTAKE! Hotel had several rooms with crack heads. The neighborhood was scary - lots of homeless and other types wandering around. We even had a stranger come into our room because the desk clerk did not recode the key card!!! Please let me know which area convenient to I40 would be safe for two ladies.

      Hi, I have been to Albuquerque 3 times in the past year to visit my daughter and family. They moved there a little over a year ago. Two times we have driven there and in August I flew there. Every single time I've gone there I get very sick with diarrhea and vomiting. I mean REALLY sick. I had to go to the hospital in August due to being so dehydrated. No one can tell me why I keep getting sick. I don't get sick at home or anywhere else we travel to. If anyone has any idea please post and let me know. We are going to be going again Oct 5 and I am scared to death to go. Please help if you can. Thank you, Donna

      Itinerary question

      by adri57 Online Now May 1, 2013 at 6:49 AM

      Arriving in ABQ towards late afternoon, with the next full day to stay there, but actually don't want to miss out on Santa Fe before moving on. Staying at Best Western Rio Grande. We'll probably go into the Old town after our arrival in the late afternoon; any ideas where to eat some good NM chow? Better to stay in the center or is there anywhere decent near the hotel? And on day 2: is it realistic to travel to Santa Fe via the Turquoise Trail, coming back via El Camino Real? What's parking like in Santa Fe? Is it better to eat somewhere on the road before getting there? We also want to visit a pueblo but they all look as if the journey north of SF would add on miles/time to our day, taking away from the time spent in SF. Are there any interesting pueblos west of ABQ which we could visit on our way out on day 3? Not ones with guided tours.

    • Place to stay on East-West trip thru Albuquerque

      by Rochrunner Online Now Mar 7, 2011 at 10:50 AM

      On our trip next September, Albuquerque looks like the only area to stay in while crossing thru on I-40. I figured there would be no problem finding accommodations, but from the reviews and other research so far, most of the ones I've found have signs of somewhat unsafe surroundings, cars broken into, etc.

      We really want to stay in a place where we're comfortable about the surroundings and not have to worry about our car overnight, etc. So where are the nicer areas with modern hotels that would be suitable for us for a night? Even the name-brand chains in the city have some pretty scary reviews.

      I did make a (cancelable) reservation at the Hilton Garden Inn Uptown. Seems OK, but again some questionable reviews (although from 2008) and the low price for the room is almost suspicious. Also right next to I-40.

      So, any suggestions?

      Last minute long week-end to Albuquerque/Sante Fe

      by valerie7277 Online Now Jan 11, 2011 at 2:39 PM

      Hi -- I just decided to do a long week-end in the Albuquerque/Sante Fe area in a couple of weeks. This will be my first time visiting, so a couple of questions:

      Should I stay in Albuquerque or Sante Fe? I'll have a car, but I'd like something in a safe, walkable area close to restaurants, galleries, shops, etc. (not a top priority, but would be nice)

      I'm thinking of visiting the Petroglyphs, Sandia Peak and Old Town....any other recommendations?

      If time permits, I was thinking of driving up to Taos. Is it worth the the drive or should I just spend my time between SF and Albuquerque?

      Thanks in advance!

      We are attending for the first time. We have a room and car booked. What else would you recommend reserving in advance. Do we need to buy tickets ahead of time? Do they sell out? What should we take in? We will be there for 5 days. 4 adults 50+ so still very able to walk about. How about some good restaurants off the beaten path (if there is such a thing that week). Anyone ever take a ride with Balloon Ryders? Any pilots we should ask for?

    • Day and a half in ABQ, what to do and where to stay?

      by tddragoon Online Now Mar 14, 2010 at 12:07 PM

      We are planning a trip to Albuquerque, and were planning on spending one night and about 1 and a half days.

      Mt first question: We are planning on taking the Sandia tram, the Petroglyph national park, a visit to old town, and nob hill. I was wondering if that's too much for the time we are spending there, or not enough. If too much, what should we pass on, and if not enough, what should we add?

      And my second question, we are looking at staying at the LaQuinta on I25 and San Antonio Drive I believe. I was wondering if that's a decent enough hotel in a decent enough neighborhood, and if not, where should we stay?
