We stayed for three nights for the 2014 Fiesta. Very good location close to the park. It is walkable to the park or if you drive it avoids having long waits on I25. The breakfast was good. It would have been nice if they adjusted the hours for Fiesta attendees. Staff and service was excellent. Bathroom was very small but...

Just returned from a stay in Albuquerque and stayed at the Holiday Inn Express balloon fiesta location. It was very nice, the service was excellent, front desk staff very friendly, free parking, the location is perfect for the balloon fiesta. The breakfast bar in the morning was hot and fresh. And even though we were on the ground floor facing...

I booked this hotel back in Feb. b/c hotels were starting to book up for the Balloon Fiesta this October. This hotel was located about a mile from the park so my friend and I just walked every morning and afternoon to see the balloons. So much easier to pay a little more for the hotel and walk than to...

This HIE feels more like a boutique hotel. It is conveniently located near the freeway and there is a convenience store and gas station next to the property. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. They allowed us to drop off our filthy mountain bikes early in the day before check-in so we could explore without worrying about them. I...

We have stayed at this hotel on the 4th of July for the past 2 years and will continue to do so. Rooms are smaller, but nice. If I had to give a negative it would be the size of the bathroom. The door actually hits the toilet. Breakfast is good. It is a smaller hotel but the indoor pool...

I stayed at this hotel a couple years ago and stayed again in late June 2014, based on the positive experience that I had the first time. Again, I had a great over night stay. Right from check in to check out, the staff (front desk and housekeeping) were attentive and their professionalism was refreshing. The hotel entry was inviting,...

Stayed here for 2 nights, for business, this hotel has seen better days! The lobby is nice and room/sleeping area was nice size. But..... The walls are thin & you can hear doors slamming, hall noise and people in room upstairs/downstairs. Bathrooms are super small & one person can barely fit; the fixtures are old & need updating. Did I...

We stayed here on July 5, 2014 so we could ride a balloon the following morning. Lobby was very inviting and the front desk agent was courteous and professional. The room was really spacious, two queens and a sofa bed sleeper. Layout of the room was logical. My only gripe is that there were no sheets in the room for...

Quick overnight passing through New Mexico. We usually stay with Holiday Inn Express because we know what we're getting and they have everything we need while staying there. The rate was reasonable. The usual breakfast was not up to HI Express standards. The selection was bleak and what they had was not appealing. The room was fine but had an...

We stayed two nights in a suite room with 3 small children. We chose the suite over the other rooms because we needed a refrigerator. It also was large enough to fit a pack n play nicely next to the TV table and desk. Pros: I loved that this is a smaller hotel. It didn't feel crowded at all (not...
