My boyfriend and I stayed here during the Balloon Fiesta 2007 for 3 nights. We got a non-smoking handicap room so it was quite spacious! The room we got was very clean, and pretty quiet despite us being on the first floor, adjacent to the indoor pool.
Breakfast was served around 5am (normally it starts around 6am if it were not for the Balloon Fiesta. Breakfast included coffee, pastries, do-it-yourself waffles!
The location of this hotel cannot be beat. On most days we opt to walk to the Fiesta rather than drive. It took us about 20 - 25 minutes walking leisurely. Just a hint - if you decide to book this hotel, and will be attending a Balloon Fiesta - take the backroad (I believe the street is called Eagle Rock, but not sure), walk down a short block, take a right on San Mateo. Eventually you will see the Balloon Fiesta on your left.
I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel to anyone.
