El Vado ABQ

El Vado ABQ NOW OPEN !!! Restored historic Route 66 motel in Old Town Albuquerque, NM. Motel.Shopping.Entertainment.Taproom.Food Pods.Events Center. STAY UNIQUE
(55)

When it opened in 1937, El Vado was one of New Mexico's first motels to greet Route 66 travelers. Generations of families have forged lasting memories and adventures starting here. As renovation gets underway in 2017, El Vado will soon be a unique blend of historic character and charm, combined with modern comforts and amenities. We can't wait to celebrate El Vado's 80th anniversary with you.

Why you should visit Albuquerque

We here at El Vado are so pleased to, once again, receive national recognition as an Albuquerque travel destination. Thank you, Washington Post. We’re honored to be listed under Local Faves. We ❤️ our locals! Thanks to all who work hard to make El Vado a fun, interesting, and welcoming place to spend time!

The Land of Enchantment’s largest city is rich in Native American and Mexican cultures, though there are plenty of reminders that it remains Walter White’s territory.

I’ll bet there’s a beer to go with that fire.

Did you know that El Vado still maintains 22 motel rooms? Each one of our motel rooms is thoughtfully appointed with unique hand-crafted furniture and art, and surrounds the pool and courtyard. You can enjoy dinner on the patio, or pick up a growler of our local beer from our taproom and have your meal delivered to your door. Are you local? Consider planning a staycation with us. Eat, drink, shop, swim, play, stay...you won’t have to leave the grounds.
Are you from out of town? Our motel is one of the most beautiful and affordable in the city and we’re convenient to all that The Land of Enchantment has to offer you. Have you stayed at the renovated El Vado? Tell us about your experience in the comments!

We have a long and interesting history. Next time you visit us here at El Vado, stop by the front desk and ask to see our storybook. As you sit in the El Vado Taproom or on our patio enjoying your cold beer and hot tamale, flip through the pages and see all that we have been and all that we have become. We’ve come a long way and overcome many obstacles. Our story has had many ups and down through the years, but it’s got a happy ending for sure

One of my favorite stops on Route 66 while I work on I am Rt 66, is the El Vado ABQ. This old hotel was saved when the community realized they were about to lose a historical landmark that was created in 1937.

We’re staying in Albuquerque. Fenella is doing the cooking.
Are the shops and food places listed anywhere on the site? It would be nice to have a list and a map of where each place is.
went here for lunch today and loved it! (but you need to put a recycling bin in the food court) Thanks for a great addition to Route 66!
Beautiful night at El Vado! 👍🍺
What is your cancellation policy on reservations made on your website?
Was driving by yesterday and took this pic! Hope you enjoy!
I just visited this spot last night. It was fantastic! Vibrant, relaxing, great food and beverages. I'll be bringing the whole family and neighbors tonight!
The sign is going up it looks awesome
Great location. Swell development project. Zendo (Red Cappuccino === red espresso (ground roobios tea) with honey, cinnamon, and steamed milk. Also, some new eateries there (Tacos all day long, for one) ... and the Ponderosa El Vado Taproom soon to open ;-)
When can we start booking rooms?
