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...

We have stayed here twice now. It has good easy access. There is a convience store next door and fast food next to that. The breakfast is good, and the staff is friendly. My only complaints is the wifi sucks and only about half the tv channels come in clear.

Room was clean. Bed was comfortable though pillows were very hard. Breakfast adequate but not as much variety as in most HIE. There was no pancake maker, for instance. But that was ok. What I really hated was the shower. It had been refit with plastic that squeaked very loudly every time I moved. I pitied the people in the...

Stayed here during the balloon fiesta and the staff went out of their way to make the stay very enjoyable. There is a great vibe inside the hotel during this time and it shows with the staff as well. Nice pool area, rooms are average but clean. The walk to the balloon park is about 3/4 of a mile and...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Balloon Fiesta Park 10-10 - 10-13 for the Fiesta. Great place to stay for this event. You can walk to the Park and avoid the traffic about a 25 minute walk with sidewalks and well lit. Great breakfast and Staff was friendly and helpful.
