Event Facilities

The Monterey Motel

For all events, we partner with our sister motel, El Vado ABQ. We’re connected by a short walking path so you and your guests can easily get to and from the party and enjoy all that El Vado and The Monterey Motel have to offer.

Celebrate with us

El Vado’s Event Center with three combinable event rooms is a perfect intimate setting for celebrating life’s milestones or for professional events. The event spaces offer state of the art built-in audio/visual technology, superior acoustics, and festive interiors inspired by nature. A fully equipped warming kitchen can support all catering needs.

The event spaces open into a light filled logia infused with nature inspired interiors. This space also acts as a lounge for all our guests. The logia opens onto an outdoor event patio offering a variety of settings for any event. An indoor/outdoor feature fireplace acts as a central sculptural focus for the area. The event center also acts as an art gallery which celebrates the work of local artists on a rotating basis.

When you visit the Monterey, you map your own story, similar to those who have traveled before you throughout the historic Route 66 highway.
