New Mexico Hotels: 65 reviews and 118 photos
Route 66 trailblazed the era of drive-in motels and the American Southwest still has some remarkable examples of these motor inns.
El Vado Motel at 2500 Central Avenue SW in Albuquerque is a prime example of the kitsch architecture that epitomises the Route 66 character.
Unique Qualities: Built in 1937 from adobe bricks to resemble an Indian pueblo, El Vado is listed on the National Historic Register.
The rooms are cheap, heavily varnished and a bit 'rustique' but you'd be hard-pressed to find anything with more charm and character!
Address: Near the plaza on old Route 66
Price Comparison: least expensive
Phone: 505/243 4594
