I usually do not write bad reviews because I travel so much and know that you aren't always going to have the best experience. Having said that, I have never been so irritated with a hotel. I had my grandmother and father staying here because they were working on our house. We requested a handicap accessible room, which we received, but were disappointed because "handicap accessible" only meant a bar to hold onto in the shower. OK, I was over it--no big deal. Next, I check my account after checkout and notice that the $20 (I later found out was $20/night/room) that was supposed to come out of my account for "incidentals" had turned to $337! What the...? When I called to talk to a manager, I was told that they didn't notice my card was charged from a 3rd party already (I went through Hotwire). This struck me as odd b/c I had a discussion with the front desk lady about it. When I explained that I have things to pay for, that I am glad nothing big was going to go through my account and need that money back in my account, the manager got quite rigid and told me that it was not their fault if I had insufficient funds. Oh. I guess it's my fault that someone on your end messed up and deducted over 4x the amount of what the incidentals were supposed to be. Not only were they not owning up to their mistake, but now I am to blame because I went through a 3rd party. Great. If this wasn't enough, the location is horrendous and if you are on a lower floor your view will be an industrial building.
My suggestions? If you have to stay, stay only 1 night and use cash. I run tournaments out here and use a lot of hotels here in ABQ...I can now scratch this hotel off my list.
