We stayed here during the balloon fiesta in Albuquerque. I'm pretty sure we've stayed here before but probably won't in the future. First the good things about this inn. The location is perfect if you're in town for the balloon festival. You're just a 10 minute ride to the park. The room was a good size and the bed was comfortable. Really liked the recliner next to the window and the flat screen TV. The sheets were clean but scratchy and there were plenty of pillows on the bed. It was nice to have a fridge and microwave in the room if we needed them.
Now for the bad. When we sleep, we need a fan to sleep with. The hvac system in the room does not allow to only have the fan running. We set the A/C to its lowest setting, but it kept going off during the night waking me up each time it did that. Needless to say I did not get much sleep. (We went out and bought a small fan for our second night.) Also when we got back to our room the second day, the bed had been made and the trash taken out but the cups that we used were not replaced. Also, the toilet had not been cleaned as there was a floater in it and the floor had hairs all over.
Finally, after going out for the evening we came back to the room only to find our key would not work. We went back to the front desk twice to have the key reprogrammed. Still no luck. The front desk person had to come to our room to let us in with their special key. Apparently, the battery in the door lock mechanism was in need of repair. Thank you to that front desk person for taking care of us. He actually offered to move us to another room which we declined since we were leaving early the next morning.
Overall, this visit was a wash. I'm not sure I'd go back since there are so many other options in the area.
