We stay at the Fairfield when we are in Albuquerque. They are always very professional and the room are spotless I enjoy their swimming pool, sauna and hot tub. This was another great stay except for some of our fellow guest . Kids cannon balling into the hot tub while parents ignored them. Running up and down the halls and...

I had a good stay. The hotel is older but refurbished, and the room was nice and clean. The breakfast was good: eggs, bacon, sausage, and waffles. The bed was also good. Cons: The walls are paper thin; I could hear a conversation happening through the bathroom walls. Despite the walls, I had little problem sleeping. My AC wouldn't stay...

Now let me start by saying I am a gold elite member of the Marriott program... so I stay in Marriott's all over and a lot of them. I can honestly say, I have never stayed in one that looked as old as this one. We felt more like we were in a Super 8 or Motel 6. Now the...

This is an old building that has had some upgrades (paint...bathrooms) but the building reminds me of an old Holiday Inn that requires more than what has been done so far. We had a good nights sleep and the place was clean, but the location is not the best...although it is close to the highway. I am a long time...

Rooms were quiet and clean. Furniture has been freshen up. Bed comfortable. Bathroom a little tight. Breakfast was above average-better than many other hotel chains. Full selection of drinks & yogurts. Friendly staff. Parking.

This property is overdue for some renovation, but the nice staff, fresh baked cookies and quiet (for not being too far off 25) made it worthwhile. A LOOONNNG walk down the hallways, so use carts! My only quibble was this is not really on Menaul Road, but behind a Crowne Plaza hotel hotel which DOES face Menaul Road. If we...

It's mentioned in other reviews as being a bit dated, and it is. However, it's convenient and quiet despite being at the interchange for I-25 and I-40, although it's not immediately accessible from University or Menaul. Check-in and service was friendly and efficient, and the breakfast featured a fair amount of New Mexican specialties. The property consists of multiple buildings...

My husband and I stopped at this motel for one night. It's close to I-25 and was convenient. Check in was fast and the front desk staff member was very nice. Our room was on the ground floor and had a sliding glass door that opened up onto a courtyard. The room was clean and modern. This motel is physically...

Quite restful place after a fun day at the balloon festival. Our tour of thirty five stayed two nights during Balloon Fiesta. We all enjoyed our rooms and great breakfast. It is a convenient location , all the staff were friendly and helpful.

Room was clean - but needed updating and a refresh. Elevator was extremely worn and public dining area was equally tattered. Staff was very friendly and accommodating - answering many questions for first time Balloon Festival visitor.
