Stayed here for ABQ Balloon Fiesta with my daughter and friends. Convenient location to visit Fiesta, on the intersection of 2 major highways. Rather than convenience, location is unremarkable, not a nice area. I am not sure why other reviewers talk about Marriott standards, because Fairfield Inn is "low end" brand, not really representing Marriott. I would stay in Fairfield... More

We stayed at Fairfield Inn for two nights, the week of the balloon fiesta. They are obviously trying to give the hotel a facelift but may be going about it in a wrong way. They rooms were updated but you can tell there is moisture in the walls or the air there. The breakfast had several healthy options to go... More

VeryGood room and breakfast and indoor pool. Doesn't look too promising from outside since in a busy area near the interstates, with an industrial business zone and shopping malls and other hotels nearby. But hotel is good once inside. Would stay again. Convenient to international baloon festival, which was the whole idea for me as well as being part of... More

This place is very bad and is the word Fairfield Inn I've stayed in. The rooms are old and smell like mold and cigarette smoke. The hotel staff is rude and they didn't help with anything. I found two large bugs outside my room! I don't think this place should be a Fairfield Inn. Will never return!

Excellent welcome at Reception, very professional but the rest of the hotel failed to live up to the normal Fairfield brand except for the bed! Bathroom was small and dated, room was ok but carpet in room needed professionally cleaning or replacing.

This hotel had a very nice young man at the check in desk. Room was very large, A/C worked GREAT. I loved that. The breakfast was a little disappointing. Scrambled eggs were a bit too runny for me. I guess Marriott is trying to make us all a little healthier, they always serve turkey sausage instead of regular pork sausage.... More

We found this on hotelcoupons.com and use it now everytime we pass through Albq. Clean, otherwise my wife would not stay; excellent warm breakfast with waffles, scrambled eggs, muffins and more; and very nice people.

The hotel is older and not at all like any Fairfield Inn I have ever stayed in. The buildings facade had a decided Southwestern flair. The lobby was a little complicated and there was a warren of rooms - I counted four. This hotel had cookies at the front desk in the evening but my husband got the last one... More

Marriott never disappoints and this hotel was no exception. From the friendly staff to the great tasting breakfast it was all great. The room was spacious and clean. We had a handicapped accessible room with roll in shower and handheld showerhead. The bed was very comfortable, better than my own. We will definitely be back.
