The hotel is in an odd location adjacent to the airport. If you miss the turn you find yourself going around the airport entrance. The only entrance in in the front of the hotel. Parking is free but if you park away from the entrance (which is loaded with employee vehicles) it's a trip carrying your luggage.The lobby is large... More

I checked in for my three day business trip on the 26th of July and the staff was very kind and seemed willing to do anything for me. Jessica, the Manager, was very knowledgeable of curtain situations, like booking.com and expedia (im not a fan). I believed some of the horror stories some of these trip advisor critics had to...

We flew into Albuquerque so we could drive to Colorado. We stayed at this property using rewards points. To our surprise, they upgraded us to a nice two room suite. We found the room spacious, quiet and accomadating. We found the staff friendly. This property offers a shuttle service to the airport and to the rental car center. We did... More

Please Note: I posted this review previously about a Holiday Inn at an address different than the one I stayed at. 1) I was charged $40 extra without explanation. 2) The pool and sauna area was suppose to provide towels -they were out two out of three times I used the whirlpool. The first time I notified the front desk... More

Dear shaufnm1, Thank you for writing a detailed review of your experience during your business trip. It’s nice to know that you regarded our room cleanliness, comfortable beds and excellent view of the Rio Grand Valley. However, we regret that the towel service and billing concern was a let down during your stay. We have sent you a private message... More

Would definitely not return. No problems with employees, but this place is sloppily managed, & there seems to be a total lack of involved, professional, caring ownership. I fully agree with other reviewers who complained about a lack of cleanliness. Even though some suggest asking for an "upgraded" room I don't know what good that would do? I am an... More

Front desk and hotel services were weak, with the dining and lounge staff picking-up the slack. Dining could be better as it took approx. an hour to order and be served breakfast when only six other tables were occupied out of twenty. Strangest daily room clean-up, as a door hanger explains the hotel's commitment to sustainability, thereby asking for your... More

This is a horribly dirty hotel. The carpet is almost black in spots, we were unwilling to even use the shower and worst of all when I folded back the comforter on the bed in the middle of the night it was covered with large areas of dried blood! The manger's response was to offer us a free breakfast which... More
