Albuquerque has a lot to offer as a unique tourist and business travel destination, including an average of 310 sunny days per year.

Thanks to the beautiful weather, most Albuquerque extended stay hotels have a pool and patio area. But some of the extended stay hotel choices go above and beyond to provide the best experience for their guests. These hotels stand out as long-term accommodations providing excellent value, service and amenities. Below, we reveal TravelMag’s top picks for extended stay hotels in Albuquerque.
From: $59/ night
The Extended Stay America Rio Rancho not only offers reasonable rates, but all guest rooms have been recently renovated—which means your stay will feel like it is costing more than $59 per night. Free breakfast and Wi-Fi are included, and every guest room has a full kitchen to prepare and store meals. Even travelers hoping to bring their four-legged pals along can benefit from a modern room at a low rate thanks to the availability of pet-friendly rooms. Another benefit of this Albuquerque Extended Stay America is its location, with department stores and supermarkets nearby to restock food and toiletries. Or, for times you would rather not cook, there are plenty of take-out and sit-down restaurants nearby. Convenient location and economical, contemporary rooms make this hotel a great extended stay choice.
From $49/ night
Less than a mile from the Albuquerque International airport is another Extended Stay America. It offers most of the same amenities their Rio Rancho location provides, including a recent renovation, and their rates are typically lower. The main factor that placed the Albuquerque Airport Extended Stay America behind Rio Rancho for us was location. While being incredibly close to the airport can be a blessing for travelers flying in and out of Albuquerque weekly or frequently, other extended stay guests may find the noise of airport traffic to be bothersome. It is still a great extended stay hotel choice, with the University of New Mexico and various restaurants nearby. And, for fans of outdoor activities, there are several parks and large golf course nearby.
From $104/ night
While pricier than its two-star competitors, the Homewood Suites Albuquerque Uptown is still a great value for the price paid. Guests enjoy the standard extended stay amenities such as suites with a full kitchen, free wifi and free breakfast, but this extended stay hotel in Albuquerque goes above and beyond. Monday through Thursday, guests are welcome to a light buffet-style evening social—for free. Prefer to cook instead? The Homewood Suites offers complimentary grocery shopping for guests as well. Even if you like to personally select your ingredients, shopping is a breeze thanks to this Hilton property’s incredibly close proximity to Uptown’s generous collection of shops, stores, restaurants and entertainment. All of these benefits make this hotel worth the higher rate, but the bill for just a week can be steep.
From $119/ night
It may seem impossible to build upon the Albuquerque Homewood Suite’s long list of amenities (including a full kitchen and ), but the Residence Inn has managed to do so—for an extra $15 or more per night. Still, long-term guests have the luxury of an in-suite fireplace for chilly nights as well as an outdoor sports court to play tennis or volleyball on under the sun. With the University of Mexico, Old Town Albuquerque and the Albuquerque Zoo nearby, extended stay travelers have plenty to do and see. Marriott is known for quality in service, amenities and accommodations, so it came as no surprise this location offers a penthouse suite featuring two bedrooms and two bathrooms spread throughout 1,050 square feet of elegant space. The cost of these extra frills may not be rational for longer stays, but those willing to pay a premium will undoubtedly enjoy their Albuquerque Residence Inn experience.
From $104/ night
Home2 is a relatively new name in the Hilton lineup, and is one of two extended stay brands the hospitality giant owns. Their Albuquerque extended stay Home2 location is comparable in rates to their Homewood Suites relative, but there are a few differences. The Home2 suite style is a little more contemporary in comparison to a typical Homewood Suites room, with a ‘sliding’ wall curtain to effortlessly separate the bed(s) from the bathroom and lounge area (or open up the room) if desired. While Home2 suites have impressive kitchenettes, they do not have a stove or oven for dedicated cooking. They have also traded the ‘evening social’ for a peppy entertainment room and stylish outdoor patio to provide ample space for socializing with visitors, coworkers and other guests. As an added bonus, this Albuquerque extended stay hotel is located right near the I-25 and I-40 interchange as well as the University of New Mexico North Campus.
