Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rolltyde68 Faith in humanity restored.
I have stayed at this hotel several times over the past 2 months while working in Albuquerque. I have had no problems and have found the staff to be more then helpful. Recently I accidentally left a large amount of cash tucked away in my room and left. The next morning I called AJ the General Manager and told him what had happened. He advised me that housekeeping had already found the envelope and turned it in. This hotel needs to be acknowledged for their honesty and professionalism. If you're in Albuquerque and want the best service you can receive this is your place.

I generally stay at one of the IHG hotels but this one proved to be a poor choice. It was undergoing renovation. Perhaps it will be better once the work is done.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by smb08 comfortable room but poor customer service
Room was clean and comfortable. It was a nice stay when we were in the room. I booked 4 rooms with my family. I was disappointed in the customer service, asked about the pool when I made the reservation but when we checked in and got settled we found out the pool was closed. I went to talk with the front desk and they advised me to talk with the manager. I went to talk with him in the morning on two different occasions and he was too busy to speak with me. I called him the next day and left a message. I have gotten no reply from the general manager. I am hoping after taking the survey someone will contact me so I can explain what happened during my stay and try to make it right.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Chimera Well taken care of.
This hotel is in good shape. It is clear the owner/manager takes pride in the property.
The goods during my stay...
The rooms were very clean.
Unique and very functional bathroom/shower layout. A stand up shower is a big plus for a traveler like myself. Tub combos tend to be cumbersome for my height.
There is a restaurant in the lobby with Starbucks.
The not as good...
Hotel was under renovation during my stay, so there was a lot of noise. I wasn't notified ahead of time and no accommodations were offered.
The pool was closed.
Housekeeping staff tries to enter the room very early (around 9am).
My room key was not programmed correctly and locked me out after the first night.
I received no recognition as an IHG Gold member.
Overall, this hotel is very nice and improving. The staff could use some better training though.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dissapointed in newMexico Poor management
i stay at holiday inns all year long with my work and usually enjoy every stay. This motels had issues that management should have taken care of long ago. There were signs everywhere saying please excuse us while we are remodeling. We rented 2 rooms and our sons room air conditioner didn't work had to change rooms at 11 pm.housekeeping should have known it didn't work when the cleaned it. All equipment in weight room was broken except for the walking machine. Pool heater didn't work. Breakfast was buffet only only had hard bacon half raw potatoes no eggs and2 one quarter pieces of waffle at 9 in the morning. Ended up eating a bowl of cereal for breakfast for 8 dollar buffet cost ridiculous . Trash can by coffee in the lobby stunk and smelled like rotten meat told desk clerk and she informed me it wasn't her job to empty it. Poor attitude. Management either does not care or does not pay attention .will come back to this town but will never stay or recommend this hotel. Holiday inn should should look hard at this .

For ABQ, the price was good for what you get. Area is safe. Walls are thin, so you can hear everything in the halls. Staff is nice and helpful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pamee54 Good last minute booking
Was pleased with my stay after a last minute booking from the airport in Chicago. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The one thing that would have made the stay better is more information about local restaurants and transportation. Arriving after 11 p.m., the in-house restaurant was closed and so was the first restaurant I was dropped at. Fortunately another was open 24 hours and less than a block away from the first one. Would have been nice to have a train schedule to look at, since I needed to get there before 9 a.m. and missed that train. Overall, these are minor complaints in what was a relatively stress free stay. The service provided by the shuttle driver and at the restaurant was excellent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fablav Very nice Holiday Inn
This hotel has everything. I stayed in a normal room not a suite. Despite that, the rooms are big, the TV's are large and new, everything was very clean. There is a small gym with brand new equipment including a multifunction cage. They even have an indoor pool plus a restaurant with drinks. I normally sleep at Crowne Plazas but this one is a vey good Holiday Inn.

Standard Holiday Inn. I wasn't there long enough to try the restaurant or other facilities. My room was clean and comfortable. Quick shuttle service to the airport. I would stay here again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Tar00 Highly inefficient hotel!
If you are looking for a courteous welcome and added benefit(s) (basic things like a bottle of water, room upgrade, etc.) for being a member that has status with IHG - forget about it. I am a Platinum Ambassador member and the check-in staff member did not even recognize that fact. In fact, the person was completely oblivious to everything. Even getting the person to smile was extremely difficult (benefits were far away)! On calling this experience out the next morning to a colleague of the staff member that checked us in the previous night, there was not apology or concern whatsoever. Experiences like these are moving me away from IHG and towards SPG hotels!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Horrible Shower
My stay at this hotel was only fair due to the terrible shower in my room. It would not drain, so after about 3 minutes in the shower, I was standing in ankle deep water. By the time the I was finished the water had risen to my low calfs. I find standing in water like this completely disgusting.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unhappiest Terrible
This is the only place I have ever stayed where no one even bothered to clean my room. Gee wiz, sorry, I'll give you a clean towel if you want. No consideration on my bill and no apology. Lousy pillows. I will say the size of the rooms were nice but the bathroom configuration was really bad. No where to put towels where you could reach them while showering other than the floor. The snail shower is very cold. I was not a happy guest.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tvs92550 Great for overnight stay to go to airport
Stayed at the hotel to get flight out early the next morning and found this place an excellent choice. The staff was great and the 3:30am wake up call was on schedule. The driver to the airport was on time and there were no issues of concern with checkout. All in all to be recommended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Davidruns Nice visit
Typical Holiday Inn. Only suggestion is that there was no desk lamp and lighting was poor.
Other reviews mentioned the lack of power outlets; I agree. Most hotels have lamps on the desk and night stand with electrical outlets; this one did not.
Again, nice hotel. I'd stsay again.

I travel to Albuquerque once a quarter on business and I always stay at this location. The people are always great, the rooms are very comfortable and it is convenient to the airport (no air traffic noise either).
Again, this is a great place to stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by WedgieTwo What happened?
I should have known from the start this would not be a typical Holiday Inn/IHG visit. When reserving, I almost always request the top floor, which I did here, to avoid any upstairs neighbors. Upon arrival, I noticed that we were on the second floor and asked if there were any on the top floor (four floors here). I got a quick "We're full!" from our receptionist as she apparently had more important things to do, like getting back to her cell phone. I'm not sure if the place was full and I understand not every request can be granted, but as Gold Member, I was somewhat surprised, bit my tongue and we proceeded to our room. Oddly, the sleeve that the keycards came in DID have us on the top floor, but it was scratched out. On the good side, the room was very comfortable and clean. Of course, upon our first night of sleep, or lack thereof, it sounded like someone was training for a marathon in the room above us. I'm not sure how much walking one can do in a room, but we sure found out each of the four nights we were there.
For the first night, the Wi-Fi worked totally smooth and well. For the final three nights, the three items we used to connect would FIND the signal, but none would connect. Calling down, I was told by the inexperienced girl to "turn it off and back on." Of course, that didn't work, but fortunately one of our phones had a hotspot.
ALL four mornings, there were no fresh towels at the gym or pool. On the second morning, I decided to swim, so I went up front and the receptionist girl said she would get housekeeping to put out some towels. After a half-hour swim, I never saw anyone. Needless to say, there was a puddle trail from the pool to my room that day. On the final morning, the pool area was utter chaos with dirty towels everywhere and the life preservers floating about the pool. Now, that is the fault of nasty guests, but if you have a sign saying the pool is open at 6 a.m., you would think it would be ready to go at that time.
IN the room, the hair dryer had some issue where my wife had to hold it at just the right angle for it to work. If you wanted to shower, we had to get a nail file to stick in the drain to keep the cap from closing off the flow. The mattress protector may have been the worst one in the history of ever. If you shifted, it would pop out of place and we ended up with a wad at the end of the bed each morning.
Now, I don't want to say it was totally horrid. The room was clean and comfortable (when we weren't hearing neighbors) and the amenities, including the bar and what the hotel has to offer are quite good for the price. We stayed in a suite and the setup felt like a pleasant, apartment home. The pool temperature was nice and warm.
This should be a GREAT hotel...it has been and should be. We have stayed here about five times over the years, but this time was well below average. The primary point of any hotel is sleep, and our lack of a good night's sleep marred an otherwise perfect vacation to the Albuquerque area. The staff was generally young, immature and unattentive. This might be the last time at this location if things don't change quickly.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LaVeda Not my first choice next time
The room was clean and the staff excellent! The problem was the room, the restroom was so small! We had to take turns charging our electronic devices because there aren't enough outlets. At first we couldn't figure out why the lamp on the night stand was unplugged but soon realized it was because someone who stayed in the room before us didn't have enough outlets either. Not what I have come to expect of a holiday inn.
