We stayed a this hotel our last night prior to flying out. The front desk staff helped me coordinate turning in my car at Avis the night before and arranging transportation to the airport the next morning. We had room service for dinner and for breakfast. Both times the food was good and the service was quick. My one complaint... More

I have had to go to ABQ for work for about 14 years. I've stayed in this location because it's right next to the rental car return by the airport, so it was easy. Time was that they recognized me as soon as I walked in the door and I recognized them. Not that we necessarily knew each other's names,... More

I stayed at this Hotel in April which is nice, clean, and very well kept. BIG However!!!! Upon checkout I got my receipt which showed I was being charged for smoking.

Whoever designed this place should be thrashed severely. There are no good parking spots at this hotel. There is not enough parking and there are not enough entrances into the building so you always have to walk a long ways to get in. Other than that it is a decent place to stay.

The Hotel is certainly located with great convenience to the Albuquerque Sunport. Overall, the grounds and lobby seemed clean and well organized. My room, however, was not up to even Motel 6 standard. Broken and sticking furniture, closet doors, lopsided drawers, and a very very filthy dirty tub. I like a bath after long day of working this dustbowl called... More

This hotel was everything we could expect. The room was larger than most of our other hotel choices in NM. It was clean and comfortable while also having all amenities we wanted. The A/C unit was old and noisy. The staff were generally helpful. The breakfast selections were good and included a pancake making machine! We had not previously stayed... More

This is our 2nd year staying here for 2 different nights at the beginning and end of our vacation trip. The thing I like the most is how accommodating they are with airport transportation, the shuttle runs from 4:30am to midnight which works for most ABQ flights and they even picked us up at 11:55 pm. We have to drive... More

I had read how difficult this hotel was to find. That's not exactly accurate. You can see it clearly, but the GPS instructions will lead you astray. When I came off the highway, I made the mistake of thinking the turn was a left, but it was a right. That error led me into the airport. After taking that loop,... More
