Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TLukken Great Stay!
As a frequent business traveler to Albuquerque I always enjoy staying at the Holiday Inn @ Balloon Park in Albuquerque. The only thing that needs to be looked at is the Internet connection. It seems a little slow and hard to connect to.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WedgieTwo Comfortable
We stayed here for one night on our way to other locations. The room itself was quite nice and the beds were above average. We were able to take advantage of the pool and hot tub, but the hot tub water level was low, and clean towels had to be hunted down. Breakfast was what you would come to expect at an Express.
The front desk staff upon arrival did not seem too interested in us and we were not greeted as Priority Club Members. The morning desk staff upon departure was very friendly and was fun to talk to.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrRemms Best hotel experience
Our stay at this Holiday Inn Express was by far one of the best experiences we have had. The staff is incredibly friendly, the facility and rooms are kept very clean, and they put out quite a spread for breakfast (not to mention the best hotel coffee I've had in a long time). The price was is well worth the service you get and I will definitely be staying here again if I come back to Albuquerque.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by HFLF Friendly front desk, room not so good
The folks at the front desk were friendly and helpful, but the room was a disappointment. We stayed at HI Express because usually we expect and get a standard level of performance. The shower curtain was ripped, bathtub would not drain, if you used both sides of the toaster in the breakfast room, after a few seconds it tripped the breaker and the lights went out (repeated many times). There were streaks of chemical or cleaner on the toilet seat and other surfaces. You get the impression that there is not as solid training program in place that tells the roommates exactly how to clean the room. Anyway we expect more from HIX normally, and this hotel did not come up to scratch. Disappointing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MikeD4x4 Good experience
Once again I have to say that the Holiday Inn (IHG) is my hotels of choice. This one in particular was an exceptional experience even for only one night. Staff was vary pleasant to work with and the room was awesome as my daughters had stated. I was unable to stay there on my way back from Denver but will stay there when ever I pass through. Thanks to all the staff and all who maintain the facilities. You can truly see that there is a GM and management that is involved.

The location was convenient, staff friendly and helpful, coffee good. The room was comfortable except for the bathroom which was very cramped, towel rack on front of sink, TP in odd locations and bathtub creaked and noisy, when standing in it for a shower. Weird, like it was going to break or something, disconcerting. Thank you for your hospitality. Also, pool looked murkey, so I didn't swim.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobPA Every aspect was fabulous
Moses at the front desk gave the impression that he loves his job. His recommendation for dinner was exactly what we were looking for!! We had wished we could have had Holiday Inn Express at all of our stops but they weren't available. We had to leave before breakfast so we only had coffee, juice and a roll, so we couldn't totally evaluate breakfast. I would totally recommend this hotel with no hesitation!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Suecitysue Clean room and friendly staff
I very much enjoyed my stay. The room was very comfortable and clean. I found the staff to be very helpful and cordial. All the road construction was a bit annoying, but not the fault of the hotel.
I was pleasantly surprised at the breakfast choices and taste. Better than I have experienced before at other locations.
I will stay at this location again when I visit relatives.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Debidee Great place to stay.
WE stayed here for 6 nights and had no complaints. Hotel staff friendly and rooms comfortable and clean. Would come back again and stay here. Convenient to most shopping and downtown. Awesome stay. Could change breakfast up more choices during the week. Breakfast was good but only changed the meat from bacon one day to sausage and that was only change. Would like to see more variety in breakfast foods especially if you are staying a week there. Gets boring after a few days....same stuff. Over all a great place to stay. Thanks.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Birdlady59 very disappointed/ loud noise all night no internet service
We were placed in room 126 on the first floor. I specifically asked if it was quiet and was told it was very quiet. Well it was next to a boiler, which made a loud boom sound every 2-3 minutes ! I was not able to sleep.
I WAS ON BUSINESS AND NEEDED TO USE MY COMPUTER, THE INTERNET WOULD NOT WORK. I CALLED THE FRONT DESK SEVERAL TIMES AND WAS TOLD TO USE A PASSWORD, USED SEVERAL PASSWORDS AND WAS FINALLY TOLD BY THE CLERK THE INTERNET WAS NOT WORKING !!!! I TRAVEL TO ALBUQUERQUE ON BUSINESS BUT WILL NEVER STAY THERE AGAIN !!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marc32 Excellent Staff
My family stayed there two nights on a combination business/pleasure stay. The staff was very courteous, attentive and did everything they possible could to make our stay comfortable. The breakfast area was very clean and the food was good. I specifically noticed that a staff member was posted at the breakfast area and continued to make sure that area was clean and that the food was plentiful.
The only issue we had was with the jacuzzi. Apparently, the maintenance person was unavailable to fix the jets. Probably wouldn't be an issue for most people. However, that is usually one of the amenities that I take advantage of at any hotel.
I will definitely stay there again.

The room was very dark and the toilet seat was very uncomfortable. Adding a charge for "amenities including the safe" and calling it hospitality surcharge is outrageous. The desk took it off but it should never have been put on. I won't stay here again.

I stay at many hotels and this hotel provided me with a room that was better than your usual limited style hotel. The customer service was great and I would definitely stay at this location again.

There are plenty of Great HI Properties in the area to spend your hard earned money. Go there not here!!
I woke up at 6:00am to the loud sounds of Diesel Trucks running outside my window for an hour. This occurred each of the two nights I spent here. When I asked the front desk and management about this. The reponse was " no one ever complained about this before". They are a "Big Account" and they will run their trucks as needed.
I am a Platinum member myself like most of you. Living on the road is hard but to have this happen and the hotel "defend" the "Big Account". I decided to take my business to another HI Property when in the area. I hope you do the same.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TXStar Horrible stay!
This hotel stay was the worst ever and was not able to relax. The room was dirty and had a foul odor on the bedding and the sofa and the carpet stained and the sofa aswell. The wallpaper was peeling off the wall in the bathroom and the bathroom was dirty and nasty. The hallway was smelling foul and dirty. The housekeeping staff was rude! The morning we left they were banging on peoples doors and speaking in spanish thinking we did not understand them. They were knocking on peoples doors who had do not disturb and I heard one of them say to the other keep knocking wake them up who cares. I was in shock to be honest. They were laughing at people in the hall. The fire alarm was pulled by some unruly kids and it was not a pleasant way to start the day. The breakfast was horrible with lack of selection and looked like it had been sitting forever with a bad odor on the eggs not a good quality I come to expect with Holiday Inn. The overall experience was terrible. Also was not recognized nor greeted as a priority member. The Wifi code was not given and it was just a bad experience at this property ruining our holiday. We went to another hotel and were only able to stay at the second one for one night as they were booked solid so that ended our holiday trip abruptly and ruined the holiday for the family.

This is my 3rd stay at this location. When I arrived I was put in a room, which ended up being next to the pool pump on the first floor. Thought the noise would stop, but gave up and asked the front desk for another room. The night staff quickly got me moved, apologized for the inconvenience, and was more than happy to make the change. This was the first issue over my multiple stays at this location.
The morning breakfast was not the same (same menu over multiple days) as other Holiday Inns (change the hot foods throughout the week), but thank goodness for the trademark Holiday Inn cinnamon rolls.
Overall the location is great and the hotel is quiet during the week. Easy to get to from the airport (15 minutes). Never stayed over a weekend. Will stay again the next time in town.
