We booked at the Comfort Inn given proximity to balloon fiesta, planning to walk to the opening ceremonies 10/04/08... which we did. We estimate ~ 2 miles from motel to balloon field. Walk wasn't so bad going, but after standing for 3 hours watching the balloons and walking around the field, we were ready to call a cab to get back to the motel - it was slight uphill back. Wished we had stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on the west side ot I-25. Forum was correct that the walk was safe. Glad we didn't drive and sit in the car traffic for hr getting into a parking lot. We walked by and beat many cars.
Friendly motel, front desk staff. There was mold around the base of the bathtub faucet . It is NOT on Signal Ave which is a dirt road lined with construction fencing and entry was closed into the back of the motel. You get to the motel from Alameda - it's behind the Burger King - with unmarked drive that runs between the BK and a car dealership. Average amenities: comp breakfast & wi-fi, don't bother with the inroom coffee - pot was yucky. Mini-fridge was good and cold.
I'm glad we only stayed there Fri and Sat night. We moved on to another town after fully enjoying the wonderful balloons Sat morning. Unfortunately the glow Sat night and lift off Sun were cancelled. I think we would have skipped them anyway. 1 morning was enough. Pictures of motel room posted are very accurate.
