Tucked in the New Mexico desert is a flashy hotel, with bright lights and jingly feel. However the hotel service was not what we anticipated. We called to make reservations and asked for prices. The lady proceeds to tell me the rate was $119 plus tax, I told her it would be four adults and one child, so five people...

I spent the weekend at the Route 66 Casino, I am not much of a gambler so I can't talk much about that aspect. The dinner in the steak house is very good. I had the ribeye and it was cooked perfectly, my dad and brother had excellent meals as well. The rooms are clean the beds and pillows are...

Hello, my lovely wife had a meeting scheduled for Fri the third. So we stayed Thurs night at the casino. They have updated the room's and they are very nice.

We always stay here on our way to and from the west coast. Rooms are reasonably priced, especially if you have a coupon from using your player's card, and are updated, clean, and nice with a fridge. Toiletries are a good brand. Towels are fluffy. Several reasonable dining options are available with 2 for 1 specials in the buffet and...

Didn't stop at a hotel in Albuquerque like we should have as we headed west and got worried that we wouldn't come across a good hotel for quite a while when out of the deep dark we saw the bright neon of the Route 66 Hotel and Casino. Decided to check it out hoping it would be at least adequate....

We came with a friend for a night of gambling. The buffet was an added pleasure. The brazilian meat was excellent! I had 3 pieces. Tip-Stay away from the pastry section-food is dry. Also, the Filet Mignon in the Italian section is tough. But shrimp is plentiful and the atmosphere is good.

We used to stay in Albuquerque but prefer this Hotel for cleanliness, quietness and comfortable beds. Have stayed here before and we are always impressed. Front desk staff are very helpful and friendly. The rates were very good, great buffet and if you like a casino, it has new slots--and lots of them and gives lots of action.

We had a really good time as we were driving back from California. Not to big but friendly staff. Clean and the smoke wasn't too bad. Rooms were very reasonable. Not much for new member comps. Several eateries and live music in the bar.

Route 66 Casino and Hotel is a great place to visit, with great memorabilia, but not to stay at! Rooms below average, very seedy and strange characters in the lobby and casino. We were suppose to spend two nights, but checked out after our first night. Slots barely payoff, table games horrible, a visit...drop $40...then move on! We left and...
