There seems to be a lot of property damage for a reasonably new hotel. You could tell in our room that parts of the carpet had been replaced.

Room was not in my name when I arrived. Hotel was under construction and that was not told to us. Also I was told there was an indoor pool and hit tub. Test their was a pool but no hit fun. Very undstified by the whole stay.

not great hotel

My room was dirty with wallpaper peeling off of the wall. The room was unusually small for a Homewood Suites. The breakfast was not edible. I am a diamond hilton member and stay at Homewoods regularly. This is one place I will not return to.

Great place to stay

We've traveled a lot and this location receives high marks on all fronts. We came from a casita in Santa Fe and had leftovers galore, so a "suite" with full size refrigerator, microwave and two burner cook stove appealed to us. The dishwasher sealed the deal. The price was exceptional, considering you not only get a hot breakfast with eggs and extras, tortillas, and red and green salsas, but then they have a welcome home reception Monday-Thursday that has a featured hot dish. We were tired after moving bags on our first day, so we had a simple meal of ricotta stuffed shells, green beans and breadsticks. If the nightly selection hadn't appealed to us, a Cracker Barrel and Denny's are next door and across the street respectively. There's an indoor pool and Jacuzzi. The bed was comfortable, the staff friendly and the hotel was clean and well tended. It's right off the freeway and a short 10-15 minute drive to most places you'd want to go, but you'll definitely need a car.

Wow

Stayed there with three kids. Four nieces came over spent whole day in pool and fitness center. Extra towels at pool side, in the fitness room and the cleaning people were very discreet knocking and asking if there was anything we needed. 5 down pillows plus a down comforter the two queen beds and extra sofa/queen fold out in the living room were incrediblle for a hotel!! fully stocked kitchen came in VERY handy for someone on a budget. KIds watched one tv me and wife watched the other. Wife is very happy about the kitchen with dishwasher, with new babies that eat poop and eat and sleep this was a wonderful place to stay and relax, Right off the freeway(I-25) and two doors down from a cracker barrel and denny's Albertsons was just a short half mile down the street. perfect location!!

Homewood Suites

Our family always stays at this Homewood Suites when visiting Albuquerque. It is convenient to I-25 with restaurants close by. The staff is always helpful and polite. The entire property is clean and well kept.\n\nIf you are going to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta this is a great place to stay. The balloon park is very close by.

great hotel for families

I thought the hotel was great for families. The rooms are spacious enough for the kids to have room to roam and with the kitchen you can have snacks available. Great breakfast buffet and indoor pool is a hit with the kids.

In town for the night

This hotel is VERY CLEAN! The woman at the front desk was very friendly and very courteous. My wife and I were in Albuquerque for the night and were very comfortable in this hotel suite. It is very close to shopping, movies, places to eat. The hot breakfast could have been better with more varity but, all in all it was a great place to stay!
