We made the reservation thinking we would stay at a Holiday Inn express quality Hotel. We found the staff at this hotel to be arrogant and rude. The breakfast was a major disappointment. There was never enough food. They even shut down the food before time is over. My wife was told 15 minutes before breakfast was supposed to be...

We stayed here for two days. Its a good hotel next to a circle k. Easy access to the I-25 freeway. We didn't get a chance to try out the breakfast. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is professional and courteous. There is a hub of restraunts and a movie theater not to far north of the hotel....

I am VERY UPSET over my stay. First off I made the reservation in advance and was told I would have a high floor and with a view of the park. I got there and was on level one with a view of a BUILDING. I was next to the laundry room and the pool, we were the only room...

We booked this hotel using IHG Points (20,000/night) back in January 2014 as rates for Columbus Day Weekend (final weekend of Balloon Fiesta) were going for $200/night. Even though we weren't out any cash, 20k points is a lot. But we really wanted to be able to avoid traffic and walk to the Fiesta each day. Aside from the price,...

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...

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,...
