Recent guest reviews

Windy night, curtain blowing with patio door closed

The staff at this location were friendly and helpful. There was a complimentary shuttle to the cliffs amusement park and ride for the balloon festival, which was really nice. The kitchen provided a good continental breakfast. The room was facing the highway with a single pane sliding glass door which really allowed the highway sounds into the room! The wallpaper was peeling, carpet pulled up in some places, sink slightly discolored, curtains really warn down, and sounds were loud from other rooms. The pool was nice, clean, and pretty warm. The hot water in the room was really hot and could burn little kids hands if not supervised. The location is easy to find after you have been there once, but took a second time around the block the first time. The microwave, refrigerator, and coffee maker were nice amenities. Overall an okay stay to save money. It does look like they are partially remodeling, however I really think better sound proofing would be the best upgrade.

The hotel was right off the freeway. Chicken was easy and staff were great. Breakfast in the morning was biscuits and gravy, scrambled eggs and green chile which was a nice addition.

small rooms, door to balcony didn't work, lots of noise, cheap plywood housing for fridge. Pillows are not comfortable and the hotel is run down. Best way I can describe this hotel is cheap and white trashy, you may only pay 40 for the room for the night but you can tell you are getting a cheap room.

Hotel is old and smells moldy. It seems that the local transients are given vouchers to stay.

Was one of the best stays ever. Clean, convenient and the breakfast was amazing

Great value, clean, refreshed decor, I was very impressed !

Amazing hotel amenities, cleanliness, accessibility, staff, location. Great for the prizes is right.

Not what we expected. Night crew inept and unqualified.

Night shift could not run credit card. Kept telling me my cc was declined. Other guest complaining of bed bugs. Non plus experience.

Need updating carpets and sink. Bed was comfortable

I reserved a handicap acessible room and all I got was aregular room with handicap bars in the bathroom, Toilet was small. The bed felt like cardboard. . People got stuck in the elevator. I had no other option kus we drove in for the GON. I will never stay at a Howard Johnson again!!

We were on the 4th floor, it was quiet and clean. Breakfast good, very happy.

Hotel was nice, and staff was super nice, however there was a couple of Fiber One wrappers, chunks and crumbs under the bed.

Parking small no true exit to major streets. Heat in room not plesant ,broken titles in room ,small tv's in room ,bathroom fans dont wo rk and no heat in bathroom.

Grandson had an eye doctor appointment in Albuquerque, and stayed here for the first time. The grandsons loved the pool and of course the breakfast that didn't require a trip to eat elsewhere. I will definitely stay there on the next trip.

The hotel was musty, and there was wallpaper peeling in certain spots of our hotel room.

Had a great experience everything was fast and easy great people work there friendly as well.. The rooms where nice and loved that it had cable good customer service!!

I like staying at this hotel friendly people and great service

Hotel is very cozy, me and the family always sleep well and enjoy the pool and breakfast. Staff is polite and the rooms are very welcoming and comfortable.
