Setting the Bar for Albuquerque Lodging

Business travelers have become weary visiting the same old chain hotels every week, month or quarter when visiting Albuquerque.  Many are tired of the “absence of hospitality” in the same décor, the same styles, and the same packaged (or made out of a package) breakfast.  The noises of elevators dinging all night long, and doors slamming keeping them awake has made them start to look for alternatives in Albuquerque lodging.

Bed and breakfasts are a sight for sore eyes for these business travelers.  They are friendly, welcoming, comforting, cleaner than hotels, have homemade warm delicious breakfasts, and homemade treats.  Most B&B’s offer the same amenities as hotels such as private bathrooms, air conditioning/heat controls, refrigerator, coffee pot, cable TV, iron, ironing board, hair dryer, and many other amenities as well.

At the Mauger Estate B&B, we offer breakfast to go or early continental breakfast for guests departing early, and we offer evening refreshments as well.  We have our own parking lot directly behind the house, and we provide our guests with superior service and concierge services.  We are definitely setting the bar a little higher for Albuquerque lodging.  Our staff is exceptionally hospitable, including the housekeepers.   We can assist our guests in finding just the right restaurant to satisfy their culinary desires.  Whether they want to walk to a nice place for a meal, or if they are looking for a running route, need a pharmacy, or a car wash, whatever it is that our guests need, we are here to help.  

For the tourists visiting Albuquerque, B&B’s are the best thing since sliced bread.  Innkeepers love to help their guests decide what to do, where to go, where to dine and how to best enjoy their visit to Albuquerque.  At the Mauger Estate B&B, we have a plethora of materials: brochures, guide books, visitor guides and other information to offer.  

So, whether you’re traveling on business or for pleasure, choose the Albuquerque lodging that gives you the best value, service, comfort and delight during your stay – an Albuquerque B&B!

New Mexico Bed & Breakfast for Sale

Have you ever stayed at a bed and breakfast and thought to yourself “What a fantastic gig, this must be so much fun!  I wonder what it would take to own and operate a place like this.”

Me too, and I found a way to make it happen.  And so can you!   The Mauger Estate B&B in Albuquerque, New Mexico is for sale, and it is competitively priced, impeccably maintained, and has a bountiful guest list, many of which return often to appreciate this extraordinary downtown Albuquerque historic property.

Chances are, when you swiftly search your device, you type in “bed and breakfast for sale” and see what the market has to offer.  You quickly find that there are many, scattered across the nation, and they are usually just slightly out of your price range, and you also think “Would I really want to live in that part of the U.S.?”  Ok, so now look up “New Mexico b & b for sale” and hopefully you will find the Mauger Estate B&B.  You will notice it is perfectly located in the heart of Albuquerque, very near Old Town Plaza, the Zoo, BioPark, museums and many restaurants are within walking distance.  Route 66 (Central Ave.), and the Convention Center are just a few blocks away.  This property is a gem, on the National Historic Registry, originally owned by a prominent entrepreneur named William E. Mauger, and his wife Brittania. 

Albuquerque is a beautiful city in the high desert with very mild weather and a state rich in culture, diverse landscapes and many sights to see, and things to do.  Albuquerque has a relatively small number of bed and breakfasts, and the Mauger Estate B&B is one very highly regarded by locals and travelers.  The unique and flavorful cuisine, bright, sunny weather, moderate population (around 800,000), vast blue skies and relaxed spirit lure many visitors to experience the abundance of outdoor activities, art and history.

Just as many visitors love Albuquerque, you will love living here.  This extraordinary bed & breakfast for sale could be your dream come true!  Book a night or two to stay at the Mauger Estate B&B, and you’ll fall in love with the lavish charm of a home away from home for thousands of travelers each year.

Furry Friends Need Fun Too! Visit Pet Friendly Hotel in Albuquerque

Many of us are so attached to our furry friends these days that we want to take them on trips and vacations with us.  It can be difficult to find a comfortable place for them and for us to rest, relax and recharge.  The Mauger Estate B&B is the best pet friendly hotel in Albuquerque; a most cozy retreat for you and your dog.  Our dog friendly room has a private entrance, fully fenced private side yard, room with dog door, private bathroom, wi-fi, cable TV, refrigerator, coffee pot, and includes full breakfast and evening refreshments.  There are dog bowls, beds and treats for your furry friend, and a nice walking neighborhood with a park 5 blocks down the street.  An off leash dog park is only 1 mile away, and several restaurants and shops are dog friendly in our neighborhoods.

We also have a dog friendly townhouse which is truly a home away from home with a full kitchen, full living area, washer/dryer, and small fenced patio.  We welcome longer term stays in the townhouse, and it also has all of the necessary amenities (wi-fi, cable TV, parking) to make your stay relaxing and convenient.

Albuquerque has become a very dog friendly city with many shop owners and restaurants welcoming dogs, and several off leash dog parks are scattered throughout the city.  Some of our close by favorite restaurants are:  Slate Street Café (patio), Flying Star (“Petio”), Church Street Café (patio), O’Neills Pub (patio), and Kelly’s Brew Pub (patio).  Strolling through Old Town and Nob Hill are popular venues with your best friend on a leash.  In the summer, we have the Downtown Grower’s Market at Robinson Park, and most hiking trails in the foothills and the Petroglyph National Monument trails are all dog friendly as well.

Dog friendly lodging exists, many hotels are “dog friendly” but they don’t offer the same comfort and amenities.  Many times they are simply a smoking room that was converted to a dog room and there is no grass, yard or play area. 

You will find that the Mauger Estate B&B is your best go-to dog friendly lodging option in Albuquerque.

Albuquerque Lodging at its Best

Many business travelers and tourists say to us “I’ve never stayed at a B&B before, and this is so much better than a hotel!”  While it really is so true, many travelers still don’t realize that in terms of choices in Albuquerque lodging, B&B’s really are the best choice, and the Mauger Estate is the place to stay!

I would like to highlight three of the top reasons so many people switch from staying at hotels to B&B’s:
  • Cleanliness is a concern for everyone.We have all stepped into a hotel room and noticed the bathroom isn’t as clean as we expected, or the carpet makes us want to never take off our shoes, or worst of all, the sheets are not clean.  At the Mauger Estate, attention to cleanliness is our hallmark, and we take pride in putting people at ease.

  • Comfort is what makes us sleep better at night, and feel at home when we are traveling.  B&B’s are much more comfortable and inviting than hotels.  There are no elevator doors opening closing, ringing, doors banging at all hours of the night, children running up and down the halls, or drunk people cackling at 2am.  At the Mauger Estate, guests tell us daily how “quiet” the house and the neighborhood are, and they often ask if there is anyone else staying with us because they didn’t hear anything.  As you walk through the house, you will feel as though you are at home, with hot tea available anytime, cookies, muffins or other treats available, quiet sitting areas, and the ability to come and go as you please make our guests feel most comfortable.

  • Homemade breakfast creates an amazing aroma for you to wake up to, and our breakfasts are filled with homemade goodness, delectable flavors and love.  We make our own muffins, sweet breads, quiches, soufflés, frittatas, granola and our chocolate chip cookies are the highlight of many guest reviews.  If you have a tight schedule and can’t make our usual breakfast time, we offer breakfast to go so that you can have breakfast in your room or take it with you.  If our guests let us know, we accommodate their dietary restrictions, and make sure their breakfast is as delicious as everyone else’s.

B&B proprietors are in the business to please people, make them feel at home, welcome and exceptionally satisfied.  It is often evident that hotels treat all guests the same, and that all guests are simply adding to their daily revenue, rather than making our day by appreciating the details and specialized treatment that guests receive at a B&B. 

So, make the switch!  Book your next stay at the Mauger Estate, we look forward to meeting you and making your Albuquerque lodging experience delightful!
