Crossroads Motel

TV show Breaking Bad (2008)
Also appears in TV show Better Call Saul (2015)
Nicknamed by Hank Schraeder (Dean Norris), the "Crystal Palace", the Crossroads Motel is in Breaking Bad the rendezvous of methamphetamine addicts. A place where Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) goes regularly. Fortunately, in reality, the motel used for the needs of the shooting, is largely more frequented.

“Look, Jesse came over to the palace at eleven o’clock Saturday night. We were together the whole time, and he never left the room.”

Wendy (Julia Minesci)

Like the vast majority of locations used for the filming of Breaking Bad, the Crossroads Motel is an actual motel. Again, no major changes were required. Even the name was kept. The owners also had to deal with the unenviable reputation that the series gave their establishment. Many fans first thought that in real life, this hotel is also the meeting point of drug dealers and other junkies in the Albuquerque area.

Fantrippers’ opinion

Los Pollos Hermanos Mug

Drink your drink from a mug featuring New Mexico’s largest fried chicken restaurant franchise. Guaranteed 100% meth free.

Used in Seasons 1, 2, 3 and 5 as the location of choice for Wendy (Julia Minesci), a drug-addicted prostitute, the Crossroads Motel is also briefly seen in Better Call Saul, when Saul Goodman (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn), try to discredit Howard Hamlin (Patrick Fabian).


Dean Norris is one of the Breaking Bad actors who made an appearance in Better Call Saul.

Crossroads Motel

A typical American motel, this establishment offers several rooms and also has a swimming pool.

If it does not offer the same welcome as luxury hotels, the Crossroads Motel is still more presentable than what is possible to see in Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. The place having indeed served as filming locations for the two series. Rather well located, it is located a stone’s throw from the Albuquerque airport, on the edge of the Downtown and Barelas districts.
