2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

One night stay in Albuquerque. The hotel was easy to find. It was a little harder to get to because of the way it is situated with the Crown Suites and the way the roads are, but doable. The staff was nice and helpful. The room was clean. The pool was great. The breakfast has a lot to offer.

Hotel and room clean. Couch in room a little worn , used. Breakfast was good , with a acceptable variety. Hotel full so breakfast area crowded. Key card worked very well wich sometimes is a roblem at other hotels but not here. Enjoyed our stay.

This is a much older hotel that has been renovated with the Fairfield name. Room was clean, but bathroom was very cramped. Heater sounded like a freight train was rambling through the room. Breakfast beverages (coffee and orange juice) were watered down.

We stay here only for a short rest at night in the middle of a loooong road trip. The room and bathroom were good enough for my family and I. Breakfast was pretty good too. The only thing was the girl in the front that was like in a hurry and she didn´t take her time to explain us all the hotel accomodation and where to find the room.

Located close to all major highways. Seversl good restaurants close by.

OK, but just average accommodations. I expect more from Marriott.

Seems like an old hotel than is being renovated. A touch dingy but many nice amenities. Indoor pool, hot tub, clean linens, good pillows, frig in room, flatscreen. Mattress not great but acceptable. Nice breakfast. Good price for what you get.

Loved the your hotel, room, spa and sauna but was disappointed with the breakfast. Many of the other hotels we have stayed with have a large Quaker Oats pot with rolled oats cooked in water without all the added salt, fat and sugar that the processed instant oatmeal has. We just are no longer eating processed foods and are so mush more healthier for it. You should watch the documentary Forks over Knives and read the China Study - they just might save your lives.

For the dollar value there is no better stay. Only down is basic brkfst. Good food not exceptional .

Housekeeping was excellent but the only elevator was out of service for nearly all of our stay. Pool was so full of chemicals it was cloudy. Internet connection kicked me off after about 6 minutes. No access to my email, and was told that the tech guy would be out to fix it three days after our departure date. Not even any aspirin or ibuprofen for sale. Staff tried to make the best of things, but it felt like anything they needed requiring an expenditure beyond bare minimum was a problem. This 'Inn' is next to another Marriot property- one that is a real hotel. Convenient location, though.

Great price. Clean and modern room. Convenient location. I stayed here on Thursday night. My son and his classmates also stayed at the hotel as they were in town for an academic competition. This was my first time staying at the Fairfield Inn in ABQ and I thought it was nice. Nice bedding, clean and update bathroom, attentive staff..everything that is important to me.

Very nice relaxing stay. Great room and great staff

It was a nice small but big hotel. It had everything you needed for a pleasant stay. Bathrooms are a little snug.

We had fun there until we turned down one of the beds..it was full of hair..the pillow and below. I called the desk..she said i could come and get some sheets...then she said..i only have a full flat sheet...Whatever...we had 2 queens..so I said ..not staying in that room..she tried to put us in the far back rooms...no ty..we did get to move to a room just above ours. I think she should have said..ok we will do anything to make you happy..how about a nice suite. I will never again stay at fairfield. I love the location. I have one in Ca. that I like and its always been clean. The girl. [...].she was no help. Maybe she was new in the business. Otherwise the location and the pool and the breakfast was nioce..very nice. Ty Kat

We needed a place for one night after the end of a long day of flying. The Fairfield surprised us. We expected an economy room at economy price. Instead, we received a room as good as any high-end Marriott for an economy price. Then, before we left, we had a very good, hot breakfast included in the fee.

I was in Albuquerque for the Balloon Fiesta and this hotel was perfect for me. It was just 3 miles down the road from a park and ride. It was also easy on and off I-40. Rooms were very large, the bed was comfy, and the shower clean and spacious.

After having issues at the airport during my trip, it was nice to have a comfortable quiet room to relax in and this hotel was perfect for that.

I have stayed at other hotels in Albuquerque but stay at the Fairfield on Menaul if they have a vacancy. It is handy for my needs, it is clean and I like the personnel. The price is good for the value you get at this hotel.

this is an older, recently renovated hotel
