Dear Nutcracker44, Thank you so much for staying with us at the Holiday Inn Express at Balloon Fiesta Park and for taking the time to give us your feedback. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed our staff service, breakfast, indoor pool, and that you felt comfortable in our rooms. We are delighted to know that our location was a highlight of your stay since you could 'beat' traffic and walk to the Fiesta event from the hotel and then have a great time seeing the balloons. We will pass on your kind words to the staff and we are looking forward to see you back in our hotel very soon. Thank you! Lily H Front Desk Manager

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Balloon Fiesta Park 10-10 - 10-13 for the Fiesta. Great place to stay for this event. You can walk to the Park and avoid the traffic about a 25 minute walk with sidewalks and well lit. Great breakfast and Staff was friendly and helpful.

Normally the Holiday Inn Express properties are a great value and a comfortable stay. This one is way below the average Express property. Getting into the property is a little awkward as it sits behind a Circle K. Parking isn't all that great and it is definitely limited. The rooms are average, but the bathrooms are ridiculously small. The door barely misses the toilet, the counter is short, and the tub is so small, the curtain doesn't stay easily in the tub due to the curved rod. The night staff seems to like hanging out in the back office as they weren't in any hurry to come out and check people in. Breakfast is average, but the breakfast area is crowded and hard to move around with a plate of food. Using their promotion line, it looks like it would be "smarter" to stay at another property in ABQ, including another Holiday Inn Express, which are definitely nicer than this one.

I plan my travel carefully, so it was unusual that I was looking for a hotel room late at night. Came across this Holiday Inn Express at 1am and hesitated because it was an awkward drive behind a gas station and through another entrance.

Happy with the choice, the last minute rare, the cleanliness of the room and the breakfast.

Had some wi-fi problems but used computer in business area.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Daily breakfast was varied and we liked the fresh fruit.

We appreciated having the on site laundry during our four night stay.

Small vending machine with dry and candy snacks and assorted colas.
