“Worst hotel experience EVER!!!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

The non smoking rooms smelled musty and reeked of smoke. Tried different rooms all smelled and had ash trays even though they were supposedly non smoking. We asked for towels from three different desk clerks. We finally had to go out and buy towels. We talked to other guests all of which were having similar problems. This is far the worst hotel experience in our travels around the us and even six different countries. I have never written a review before much less a bad one but we felt compelled to warn others. We wish we had seen other reviews on this site before we booked this room for the Balloon fiesta.

Room Tip: Best rooms are somwhere else.

My first time reserved room through priceline.com looks ok viewing pics online. In reality i walked in automatically smell the strong stench bad odor and smoke. In my request is no smoking room! i quickly ran to the bathroom to pee there's no toilet paper, no trash can, no toiletries complimentary, no towels just hand towel. I attempt to call front desk found the phone is broke the speaker is hanging since it's old fashion phone. I walked back to the front desk asked for another room or at refund but nope! can't get a refund and all the room are about the same since the employee is nice and let me in to check another room. Trash around parking lot as i walk and drove around the area. Internet or quote Wifi sucks!!!! TV keep shutting off . I didn't shower why should i put my clean body in between the stinking sheets and pillows. I didn't sleep at all feeling so unsafe and the noise upstairs and next to highways hearing traffic. Like the saying say's "You get what you paid for" this for sure! I wouldn't recommend this place what so ever it should be shut down for business.

Made a reservation online and it stated online that there would be a swimming pool so I agreed. To my surprise when I drove up the pool was out of service. My room was poor. Phone was written on, wall had something liquid looking that was dried up on them, no shampoos or soaps, no remote for tv, cable wire was split so you had to stick it in the back of the tv. Blankets rips and holes in them and the air conditioner had food in it. There was only the card lock on my door because the top lock was taken off for some reason. It is a bad experience I don't even want to sleep there it is so disgusting. If I had the funds or was able to get a refund I would stay somewhere else. Never again...

Booked for one night since plane got in late and I didn't want to drive to Santa Fe. Room was filthy - dirty carpet, holes in window curtain, sheets. Sheets so thin I could see the mattress underneath. Phone was dusty but didn't matter, because it didn't work. TV had no remote. Sink had no stopper. Decided not to take shower as not sure what was on basin floor. As another reviewer noted, poop on bathroom walls. Poor lighting. Poor everything. Not "suites," but a typical one-room motel. Handle on door stuck, so it was hard to open. I felt unsafe. This is not a place to spend several nights, and not a place to stay even one night, especially if you're traveling alone, as I was.

Room Tip: Don't choose any room here - go elsewhere

Stayed one night July 2,2011 and had two rooms. Neither room had blankets, ice buckets, telephone books,or clocks. Called the front desk to request a blanket and was told they had none.,not even extra sheets. The sheets and comforters on the beds looked like they were never washed. The bed felt like you were sleeping on a hill, the mattress was so worn. There was poop on the bathroom wall in both rooms. The drain in the shower was gone. Shadey people hanging around the place, .Not a good place to stay

Though they have a big banner claiming $125/wk starting rates, that's for an UNfurnished room. The real cost (Mar 2011) was $177/wk single - and that was without a microwave or fridge (those cost extra). The room was FAR smaller than a typical motel room, and needed numerous minor repairs. Several families living there (apparently long-term), with kids running amok. Noisy tenants. Don't know why they call it "suites", didn't see any sign of anything but normal single motel-type rooms. Wifi is passworded (changes weekly), isn't reliable, and takes you to corporate site before you can go anywhere else. Do yourself a favor, and keep driving.
