I stayed just one night prior to leaving from Sunport International Airport on a 6am flight. I arranged for the 4:45am shuttle to the airport and the driver was friendly and accommodating. The staff was very friendly and I would definitely stay here again as it was a great value. My only issue was it took about 15 minutes to...

We stayed here twice on our way to and from a business meeting in WA. 1st night was 16 Feb 2017. Check in was a breeze. A sweet young lady was in training and could not have been nicer and more accommodating. Room was nice, clean, showing signs of age, but very clean. Bed was very comfortable. We took advantage...

Great location when flying into Albuquerque late at night before ski trip to mountains. Would stay here again. Clean room with comfortable king bed. Rooms aren't insulated well and neighbors TV comes through the walls. Bathrooms could use a remodel.

I stayed here as I drove to Dallas on New Years Eve. The staff was incredibly busy but extremely friendly. They handled concerns of customers as well as continued checking in guests. I found the room very nice and comfortable. Large walk-in shower and extremely comfortable bed. I slept like a baby!

I used to like this place but new management has ruined it. The bar used to have late night happy hour and snacks, new management eliminated it. They also used to have some food in the bar, new management eliminated that too. I think they are required by law to serve some food but i am not from here so...

The bathroom wall paper is pealing and has hair in sink. The toilet is dirty. The person that checked us was training and did a good job. The luggage rack is broken and un safe. I pointed it out and all they said was that they would have maintenance look at it. The experience for the stay was below average...

My wife and I were in the airport area looking for a place to possibly check in early.

Have not stayed in Holiday Inns for years (frequent guest of HIE). This property was exceptional. Staff was helpful and professional. Rooms were clean and roomy. I will say that the bathroom door is a problem...the management should look at installing pocket doors. The bathroom is very narrow and the standard door is too large for the space. Otherwise loved...
