Intown Suites, Albuquerque, New Mexico - December 20, 2003
I stayed at the Intown Suites in Albuquerque for 2 weeks. I decided
to take some pictures. It was a reasonably decent place to stay,
though they really need to finish renovations, they need to have some
non-smoking rooms, they need to fix the elevator, and they need to
make the person upstairs stop walking around like an elephant all
night. It was cheap and the overworked woman at the front desk was
friendly and helpful, but I'd still recommend something else if you're
looking for a place to stay temporarily in Albuquerque.

Night stand. No alarm clock. And another Alaska Highway picture on
the screen saver.
There's a small table with 2 chairs.
A little kitchen. With 2 refridgerators, for some reason.
Bathroom. Another complaint: the towels provided were pretty bad, so
I went out and bought a set.
Time for a new carpet. Looks like someone tried to iron it.
And they need to do some painting.

View from outside the room. Those volcanoes are the next stop..
The ridiculous rental car, my giant white boat. If you're ever
looking for a car that doesn't go when you step on the gas, has the
turning radius of a tandem trailer, gets lousy gas mileage, and is
absolutely horrible in snow, get yourself a Town Car. Otherwise, do
yourself a favor and never drive one. Like the Intown Suites, the car
was a bargain, cheaper than most places' small cars. I should have
turned down the free upgrades and gotten something more reasonable.
