Would of been nice to have known the hotel was under construction when booking our stay. Was kinda shocked walking through the construction to get to our room. Made us wonder what the room was going to look like. That said the room was very nice and updated. Very pleased with our stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jongin2 Still under renovations. will be great
This is a lovely hotel in the middle of renovations. We chose a hotel north of Albuquerque to avoid morning rush hour. This was perfect! We were surprised it was not noted on any web site about the renovations when we booked. The renovations were not a hindrance however. We got a newly refurbished king room which was very comfortable. It still needed minor touch ups, such as baseboard trim, another lamp, counter tops on desk and dresser, light above mirror in bathroom. That did not bother us. We felt very comfortable and safe in the hotel. The breakfast choices were standard IHG brands. The floor was being mopped and hated to step on it but the housekeeper soon got it dried. We would stay here again and it will be fun to see how the renovations are the next time we come through this way.

In spite of the ongoing construction, we had a great stay at this hotel. During my trip I stayed at three different Holiday Inn Express hotels and this one was by far the best. It had the most spacious room, most comfortable bed, best shower pressure, and lowest price. I will definitely stay here again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by travolier 4 months and counting under construction
We stayed at this HIE in Nov. of 2014, and it was under renovation - no elevator, breakfast room & front lobby finished in bare dry wall w/ plywood floors, over-tired furniture - and thought that, by March, the renovations would be finished. My mistake for not asking. If anything, it's in worse shape than it was four months ago. Only the friendly, professional staff saved the stay from being totally unbearable. Those people deserve raises for having to put on a good front for so long. It will be a long time before we try this HIE location again.

This property is under extensive renovation and should close until the renovations are complete. The few rooms they have open are in bad shape. Our mattress was very bowed to the point it was like sleeping in a hammock. There is not a single ice machine or vending machine in the hotel and you have to go to an adjacent hotel to get ice and soda.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tinman1983 Hotel under remodel
Rooms on 1st and 2nd floor were competed, except mine had no fridge and mircrowave, and the mattress and pillows were not typical IHG quality. Rooms on upper floors completley gutted, as was the lobby and common area. The remodel is a good thing. Also the A/C in the room didn't appear to work. Luckily the fan is all we needed.
The only working icemaker on the property broke after the first night, and the staff didn't seem to be concerned or offer an alternative.
The jets on the hottub were missing, rendering the pump useless.
I am a long-term Priority Club / IHG member, and will continue with that loyalty. i will try this facility when I return to the area, hoping that the remodel will correct these issues.

A property should be required to state in BOLD type at the TOP of their listing as soon as they know they will be undergoing renovation. I was not informed of this when I made my 7-night reservation. I selected the property based on its location and its overall star-rating.
When I arrived, and saw the construction zone, I considered cancelling. The people at the front desk (a folding table) assured me they would put me away from the construction, and that the crew only worked from about 10-5. But at 7 the next morning, they were pounding away on the room just above me. After two nights, the clerk moved me to another room, at a reduced rate, to avoid the noise, but this room was on the first floor, next to the lobby and breakfast area, which was also being re-tiled. The breakfast area was marginally clean, but was amid constant construction dust.
Several evenings, a motorcyclist was continually roaring past my room, not ten feet away from my window. The clerk told me this was a public street, and he couldn't do anything about it. Again they offered to move me. I'm willing to move once during a stay if the first room is not acceptable, but moving is a hassle, especially during an extended stay, and I wasn't willing to do it again. My entire stay was too noisy to be relaxing.
The staff was sympathetic and very friendly, but pretty helpless under the circumstances. I'm also sympathetic to the renovation challenges, but the property should have closed during the renovation.
