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
(57)

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.

Operating as usual

Reposted from @ladyjennd Gooood morning everyone!
I had a great time last night at @elvadoabq ! I am so grateful to my friends and peers and for the love and support they show towards my art! I actually got to see faces (though masked!) of folks I hadnโ€™t seen in months so that was very very special to my heart! And I got to know a couple of peeps I adore even better! So it was a chill evening with good food and great music by @guitarjperez ! Thanks to @mariposamusicpromo for putting this together every Friday.

Here are some highlights. Sales were a bit slow so Iโ€™ll be having a sale like today lol

I wanted to say thank you again for your kindness -when we got a flat tire 130 miles away and couldn't make our reservation. I appreciate it! We'll be sure to stay next time we come through.
Weโ€™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! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿบ
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?
