“Balloon Fiesta”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

I was going to Alburquque on business during the balloon fiesta week and all of the major hotels were already booked. My customer advised trying the INN which really worked out well. It was 15 minutes to downtown and about the same distance to the balloon event. The Inn is located on a golf course and although the rooms are dated, the setting is as good as it gets. The rooms open up to gardens facing the first tee and in my opinion, offer a great affordable alternative to the major hotels. The Innkeeper Tony is friendly and helpful.....there is a complimentary breakfast at the INN....and the golf course has a nice grill room for lunch and a limited dinner menu. It's not the Ritz, but it is very nice and I will go back.

Room Tip: I stayed on the first floor and could walk outside to the garden.

Had a family wedding to go to and stayed at Paradise with the rest of our family. The rooms are a little outdated but clean. Was the perfect spot for a big family (around 25): rooms are close by, plenty of room to congregate outside, beautiful landscaping and a great vista looking out towards the mountain. A big plus is the breakfast, which may be cooked by the staff, but may be cooked by you. It is a family run hotel. Mini fridge in rooms.

We had a group of 30 and found the Inn to be a lovely place to gather. The owners were very accommodating. We had cook-outs for several meals and were able to set up tables in the beautiful garden area and use the grill. Breakfast was very casual, but more than adequate. It was more a continental style where we ate whenever we were ready. There was a waffle maker and mix available, plus a lovely assortment of breads, fruits and cereals. The garden was an awesome spot to sit in the early morning and watch hot air balloons. Anything we asked for we were provided. It is a family run operation, a little large for a B & B, a little small for a hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the welcome feeling of the place. We will definitely meet up with family here again. For other reviewers who said it wasn't clean, I would say more it wasn't a sterile environment. It felt very homey and I think that's why we were all so comfortable.

Room Tip: The room on the main floor closest to the breakfast room has a fireplace and is very large.

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend. Overall, the place feels a bit dated, but was clean. The rooms are spacious and the bedding was all very nice. The view onto the golf course was beautiful and we awoke to hot air balloons in the distance! The staff was very nice!

This is like a hotel in the size/layout of the rooms, but is operated more like a B&B in that you have to request room service, for example, or that the same person who checks you in will possibly be the same one fixing the breakfast. Oh, and the continental breakfast was basic, but good. Overall, we'd give this a B. Not quite average, but not yet very good. Somewhere in between.

Room Tip: If you want a view of the golf course, get an upstairs room. If you want to walk directly out onto...

Went on a golf trip and stayed at this so-called B&B. The three days we were there, the basket was never emptied, the coffee maker never cleaned since the first day we used it. The food in the B&B kitchen looked old, the area looked dirty. We stayed clear of it. The staff was almost invisible. When I tried to call down to the reception for the wi-fi password, no one answered. I had to get an outside line and call in as if I was making a reservation to get service. If your looking for helpful, friendly service, look elsewhere. You'll be hard pressed to find any of their staff give you as much as a smile. The place is dated and not well maintained. We would never recommend this place to anyone.

This is a small, budget hotel. It is not a b & b as advertised. It was clean enough, but not what was expected.

Stayed here for two nights to go to the Balloon Fiesta (which is well worth going to). Although this is an Inn set on a golf course, it felt more like a motel. The room was a reasonably size but felt dated, the bathroom was tiny. We arrived late and asked for directions for somewhere to eat. The owner suggested we went next door to the golf course restaurant. Turned out to be more of a bar with a few tables. We both ordered chicken fillets; one came cooked throughout, the other was still raw inside (all the food was very mediocre). At least there was no suggestion that we should pay for the meals and we were only charged for our beers. We also asked the owner for directions to the Fiesta. Given that we were leaving to get there at 4.30am, in the dark, it would have been helpful if the directions had coincided with the road names, but we eventually got there by spotting and following a 4x4 with a balloon basket in a trailer. Breakfast was basic and they appeared to be understaffed throughout our stay. The garden area was lovely and it was nice to be in an open area with the golf course in front of the rooms. But if we are ever in Albuquerque again this would not be our first choice of accommodation.
