Hopefully coming from East going West Train will arrive close to on time in Albuquerque, NM as have rental car reservation --- if not will need a hotel either nearby or within low cost taxi ride. Rental Car office is about a mile from the train station. Any low cost (safe area) hotels that fit that? Thanks.

Until somebody chimes in with something better, here's a link to the closest hotel to the train station: https://www.tripadvi...New_Mexico.html The map feature there will let you see what's closest to the car rental office - wherever that might be.

They have dorm rooms and several private rooms with bathroom. Our room was pepto pink at the top of the stairs.
There is good cheap bus service along Central Avenue (old US 66).

Edit: P.S. In regards to the hotels being in a safe area, I, as a physically fit young man, have never felt unsafe downtown, but during our current mayoral campaign they've gone on and on about how unsafe it is, so it occurred to me you might feel unsafe even in the blocks around the station, in which case you should know that any branch of a hotel with airport or university in its name is within 5 minutes by cab.

In years past, Albuquerque has been considered specifically unsafe for women walking alone at night. YMMV, but I'd recommend caution.
The Parq Central hotel is fairly near Amtrak, and a unique experience--it's a former mental hospital, now a very comfortable boutique hotel. And the Standard Diner (nearby, roughly midway between Parq Central and Andaluz) has good food and drink, and offers a comfortable welcome to all sorts--women alone, elders, and children included.

If the rates are not too high, we stay at the Hotel Andaluz. A very nice place with fantastic lobby and very E conscious. A decent walk in daylight, but at night you might want to grab a quick taxi.
