We booked our room two month in advance (maybe a little more) knowing that the ABQ Balloon Festival was going on at the same time. When booking, we did prepay to get a lower rate. I tried several times to get them to take my money (a little weird hearing it now), they still hadn't taken it out prior to check in (despite that I was suppose to pay early). They did end up honoring the prepay price though but when we booked, we requested a low floor (due to fear of elevators). We were put on the 10th floor. When my husband asked about it, he was told that despite us reserving a room, they never ASSIGNED us a room and had booked our room to someone else (and had to cancel their reservation due to the being booked completely). Well, after the first hike up ten flights, I rode an elevator for the first time in 6 years. I guess that's good. Our room was TINY. Super tiny. We did have a good view of the highway and when the balloons were launched in the morning, we were able to watch them rise and fall. The first night we ordered pizza. We put our leftovers (almost 60 dollars worth of pizza and soda) in our mini fridge with the idea to eat them for lunch. The next morning we went about with our activities and came back...to find our mini fridge...and ALL of our food, gone. They took everything out of our room!!!!! We still aren't sure about why they removed it. I'm guessing another guest needed it and they just took our food with it. My husband wanted to make a big deal about it but seeing that my lips were chapped and our pizza was spicy, I didn't care anymore. I just wanted to enjoy our time in ABQ and deal with the room. The room was tiny but the bed was comfy. We slept well there except for hearing traffic on the highway all night (but it's an older hotel, what can you expect?). Our experience wasn't the worst but we would never stay here again. To get internet, we had to pay $13 a day and then go out for breakfast in the morning. Truthfully, I would have rather preferred a Holiday Inn over this. Their rooms are bigger and just as comfy and there is free wifi.
