Great spot

Right off a main road. Very convenient spot. Thank you.

Nice stay

Very helpful host.

Friendly host

Very friendly host, but the position of the site (very close to a busy road) does not support a good sleep at night. Rena gave us good advise for visiting part of Albuquerque. Understand that she cannot eliminate the heavy traffic noises. Alternatively we can’t understand one of the other references reporting: quiet neighborhood.

It was such a pleasure to be hosted by Thornyrrose. Not only was she very nice & easy to talk to, but when my transmission died she helped me in every way that she could, most importantly letting me stay in her driveway for not the scheduled one, but EIGHT nights in a row. Knowing that I had a place to park & stay while waiting for my van to get fixed was such a blessing.
The location is within walking distance of a grocery store, two parks, & a great brewery. Very easy drive to downtown (when your transmission works).
Highly recommend!!

Perfectly fine

We spent one night in the driveway and had a good sleep in the middle of Alburquerque. Didn’t get the chance to meet up with thornyrrose but it was ok since we came late and left early. Thanks again for your spot :-)

It was fantastic.

Wonderful Host

The Thornyrose is a perfect place to stay inside the city of Albuquerque. Close to everything, pretty quiet, especially for the city, safe, and the host is extremely kind and very communicative and helpful. I highly recommend and am very thankful for the blessing.

Pleasant host and parking spot.

Thornyrrose is a very pleasant host and the driveway parking spot is flat. The urban location has many amenities nearby.

Great urban location

This a terrific site set in Albuquerque, convenient for some site seeing. Our host is a very nice person who gave us a ton of ideas for our visit in the region. Our 25 ft motor home fit perfectly in the driveway.
Please be aware that this is an urban location so some background noise will be present during the night. However this did not bother us at all.
Overall a nice comfortable stay. Thank you for the hospitality and great communication.

Easy overnight

I stayed with Thornyrose for a single night in March. She responded quickly and positively. Her situation was exactly as described. She greeted me upon arrival, offering me either the driveway or the street, and even invited me to a public event happening nearby. Because I'm used to living in rural areas, and her home is very near a major artery in Albuquerque, I decided to stay just a single night. Other than typical city noise which was bothersome to me, it was a very positive experience. Thank you, Thornyrose ~

Amazing host!

We stayed with Thornyrrose in March 2017 and she made our boondocking so wonderful. She was informative, kind, thoughtful, and flexible. She has also hosted numerous times and that expertise was very helpful in figuring out the best parking and visit arrangements. We highly recommend her as a host. Thanks, Thornyrrose!!

Great Stay!

We stayed here a month ago, Oct. 2016, during the Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, and found it very comfortable and convenient for all things. It was an easy drive to the Sandia Peak Tramway (we didn't take the tram - way too crowded - but we did hike on the trails), very quick and easy drive to the shopping center for the Balloon Fiesta shuttle, and a fairly easy drive to Old Town. Thornyrrose very kindly parked on the street so we could park in her driveway for a couple of nights. Unfortunately, between her work schedule and our up and out early for the Fiesta activities, and home late after more Fiesta activities, we met and spoke with her only briefly as she went to work one mornings. But through our email correspondence, she was very helpful and friendly.

Wonderful stay.

Stayed with Thornyrrose during the Albuquerque Ballon Festival. She was very knowledgeable about things to do and places to eat in her area. We had plenty of room for our 23ft camper van in her driveway. We really enjoyed talking with her about traveling.

We had a lovely time staying at Thorny Roses place. She was as nice as could be and we couldn't have asked for a better host.

Great visit in ABQ

We enjoyed the close to everything location whole staying with Thornyrose in ABQ. We got some great tips on places to camp nearby from our gracious host as well. Thanks, see you again!

Great Location and Fabulous Host

We had so much fun getting to know Thornyrrose, who made us feel immediately welcome and, at the same time, free to do our own thing and come and go as we pleased. The location is central, with easy access to lots of shopping as well as the Interstates Highways. Than you for the outstanding hospitality and two peaceful nights!

Central location in Albuquerque

Quiet neighborhood. Easy to locate and very easy to get to the Balloon Fiesta from here. An actual neighborhood where I could take my dogs for a walk in the morning. Nice host too.
