I arrived about 10PM after being picked up at ABQ by the hotel's van. The time on hold was a bit much but not painful when I called for the van. My reservation was in order and check in was quick. The room was the new Holiday Inn standard with the hard floor for the entry and bathroom which I... More

The hotel is under renovation so it's a bit dusty and the front entrance was being painted. But the shuttle service and driver were expeditious and courteous. Rooms are smallish, the bathrooms slightly discombobulated but clean. A good place to stay right next to the airport if you are taking an early flight! Great price/quality ratio

Stayed here at the end of July to attend a concert. The hotel was easy to get to from the highway and although it is close to the highway and to the airport it was a pretty quiet place. Check in was quick and simple. We had one of the one room suites. It was very nice with lots of... More

We stayed a this hotel our last night prior to flying out.

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

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.
