This is the second time in 4 weeks that I have been in this exact hotel. The staff is so friendly and welcoming, the rooms were clean and comfortable the first time I stayed here and they were again this time. I do have to give a special thank you to 2 of the young men that have waited on...

Loved the convenient location to the Balloon Park, they have a shuttle but they charge $5.00 per guest each way (the hotel next to them Quality Inn?? offers free shuttle to their guests). The Holiday Inn Shuttle was not very reliable for the return pick up...we had to call 3x and wait 45 minutes. The room was clean, however the...

This is an older property given a facelift...but still misses the mark. I WOULD ENCOURAGE HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS MANAGEMENT TO VISIT THIS PROPERTY UNANNOUNCED. The hallways and rooms have minimal lighting...normal light bulbs have been replaced with low wattage CFL bulbs something I have only seen in former soviet Republics in Central Asia. Brighten up the rooms with LED bulbs...

They had absolutely every amenity that we could have wanted. The breakfast was good and everything was clean. We enjoyed the other people who were there in the breakfast room. They even would have provided transportation to the balloon festival from the hotel

Although this hotel looks quite new from the outside it is clear from the very narrow halls and bathrooms that you have just landed in a remodel. The room was fine - large enough. The bathroom was reminiscent of a European hotel..TINY! It was clean and the staff friendly.

We drove from Phoenix to Albuquerque and we made reservations at this hotel months in advance, so we could be near the entrance to the Balloon Fiesta. The hotel is very old and run down and the price was jacked up because of the festival. I don't mind paying a higher rate for a hotel room due to a special...

My wife and I stayed here one night on a long cross country road trip. We regret the choice. It was our worst lodging experience of the trip. We enjoy Holiday Inn Expresses, but definitely not this one. The staff was indifferent and cavalier. It was hard to believe they were staff. Our room, as do most rooms on the...

This was an older Holiday Inn Express and quite expensive - I am sure that prices were escalated for the Balloon Festival - $345. - but we booked it because we could walk to the Balloon Festival - .7 of a mile.

We have stayed 3 nights recently in this hotel. The hotel took advantage of this event, by charging us $1135 for the all period. In addition, they are charging additional $5 for transportation to the site, which is outrages. The room was big, but the bathroom was very small & the water tub valve was leaking.
