We must admit, we are downtown ABQ, and many scenes were filmed for Breaking Bad at nearby locations. You may wonder why a B&B would want to be associated with such a dark plotted television series. Well, after having many guests, from all over the world who have visited ABQ for the specific purpose of seeing where Walter White and Jesse Pinkman called home, we have decided to jump on the Breaking Bad Wagon. After all, if the Pinkmans can call downtown ABQ home, you should too, while you stay at the Mauger!
