“Perfect place for a quick stop off in Albuquerque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

The hotel is a little ways from the airport, and it was about an $9.00 cab ride since we arrived late (flight delay) we couldn't take the shuttle. Upon arrival the night desk person was extremely pleasant and accomodating. He asked if we'd eaten and offered us complementary water, just because we probably looked pretty haggard. He processed us quickly and we were in our room before we knew it! The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. We had a king bed, a flat screen TV and everything we needed for one night. The next morning the breakfast was pretty comprehensive, they offered muffins, sausage, pancakes, some omelet type thing, cereal, juices, yogurt and more. It was filing and tasty. We took the hotel's shuttle to the rental car area, and that was a real added bonus! The shuttle was free, fast, and the driver actually told us some facts about Albuquerque as if they were a tour guide! Overall, a great one-night stay and I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Take the shuttle to and from the airport to save money!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

This was a very pleasant hotel with friendly staff and nice breakfast in the morning. Unfoturnately, we were late in arriving due to the weather in Colorado that we were coming from. My kid wasn't able to enjoy the pool in the evening and had to wait until the morning. There were obnoxious kids in the pool who were screaming so loud that we left early. While I understand it's not the responsiblity of the staff to keep guests and their kids under control, it should would be nice if parents could act responsibily and recognize that this is an enclosed area and SOUNDS are LOUD! I do not fault the hotel, everything here was quite good.

The room was spacious and clean. Temperature control was easy and comfortable. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud. The refrigerator and microwave made it a nearly perfect room. The finishing touch was the outstanding breakfast, probably the best we have had at a hotel. All in all, this was the best Holiday Inn we have experienced on our travels.

This Holiday Inn Express is relatively new in the ABQ Sunport area. Although there was a girl's spots team occupying most of he rooms when I stayed and they were exuberant, when I went into my room and shut the door I could not hear them. The room was very spacious and well appointed. The airport shuttle was prompt and courteous. A satisfying experience.

My husband and I stayed here one night on our way to Santa Fe and had a great experience. The complimentary shuttle was waiting for us at the airport and the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and breakfast was good. The best part about the hotel is the complimentary shuttle within a 3 mile radius. If we are ever back in the area we will definitely be staying there again.

We chose this hotel for its convenient location (5 minutes from airport) and reputation on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. We stayed one night on the front and back end of our trip this February and found check-in/out smooth, the staff attentive and helpful and the room clean and well equipped for a short stay. The restaurant and bar staff are particularly friendly, hard-working and do their very best to meet the needs of what seems to be a difficult to predict flow of traffic. We will definitely stay here again when we fly through ABQ. Thank you!!
