Justin was awesome at check-in Rarely in my 30+ years of traveling and hotel stays have I encountered such quality service, cheerfulness and undivided attention at check-in Taking my elderly mother on her final cross-country road-trip; we arrived a bit early

Rather than stall or make excuses, Justin went far above and beyond to get us into our room as fast as possible, all while he helped get us familiar with the area I’ve stayed in $1600/night hotels where the service wasn’t this good Well done, Marriott In my book, you’ve got a hero in Justin Oh, and… the room was awesome — slightly on the expensive side, but quite upscale and worth every penny

Jonathan Lacson

Facility was state of the art, everything worked and was nice, and the staff were very attentive and friendly Shoutout to Justin who was very kind and gracious during my 2ish month stay — he deserves a raiseTaking a point off because of the laundry — the dryers did not dry all the way (and before you ask, yes I cleaned the lint traps

) I had to run the dryers twice (which I didn’t appreciate from a cost perspective) or hang up my damp shirts around the room and blast the AC if time was a constraint

John Matranga

Rooms were well-appointed and spacious Decor was nice throughout in the room and in the common areas The greatest “minus” related to the free breakfast

Much of the food for breakfast is off-limits to guests A gatekeeper and physical barriers blocked access from getting juice, cereal, yogurt, bagels, and the like My guess is the purpose was to control room costs related to breakfast, but the effect on guests is to make people wait and feel uncomfortable asking for juice Drop the barriers please and guests will be happier

Samantha Vigil

The rooms were very clean and a good size for a family of 4 The staff was very welcoming but somewhat inconsistent The front desk was great about all questions, but breakfast

One day breakfast was amazing: sausage, eggs, waffles The next cereal and cold coffee from the day before?? When asked the front desk said it wasn’t their job I’m sure it wasn’t, but not helpful Hence the 3 for service The maids were 4 star for real very helpful and courteous when needing towels or anything

Derek Raymond

I stayed 3 nights in an ADA King Suite The room was really clean with a great lay out I really appreciate the walk in shower with adjustable shower head, as well as the wide living area

The staff were really friendly and professional I felt safe at night, staying alone It’s really close to major roads and interstates I’d recommend joining their Free Choice rewards club so you get the best rates and accrue points for your stayI’d highly recommend turning left out of their parking lot and checking out the view of the mountains while getting a coffee at Dunkin Donuts

Timothy Carmickle

If you choose this hotel, make sure you stay on the third floor We were kept awake nearly until midnight and at 5am due to the room above us Every footstep is heard and felt through the walls, floor, and bed

The clerk was absent-minded or very inexperienced, asking for my name and other information multiple times over the phone during reservationThe pool had stuff all over its surface, visible from the hall outside Some doors were ripped and hanging from the jambHot and cold in the shower were switched, although plenty hot The handle was loose and floppyThe central air vent was very noisy (not enough to drown noise from other tenants)The greatest credit to this hotel is that the bed was quite comfortableI have had much better stays at hotels less than half the cost of this Breakfast held no surprisesYou would not miss out if you stayed elsewhere

Doug Wilson

Clean, comfortable, and quiet room The front desk staff really went above and beyond to make our stay smooth and restful When we extended our stay, they made sure that our room key wouldn’t expire, as just one example

Very thoughtful, helpful, answered all our questions, and checked in via text to make sure we had everything we needed Outstanding and very much appreciated, as my girlfriend’s mother had just passed, and we were overwhelmed

Angie Kotarski

For being a Diamond member, they sure don’t know how to take care of you I was told upon check in that I would receive breakfast for my and my husband We were there for our wedding so we had a lot of family also staying there

When we went for breakfast, they said I didn’t chose that so we would have to pay full price I told the lady that when we checked in we were told we received breakfast or a credit to use for snacks I had to call Hilton customer service and they called front desk at Rio Rancho Lady said they lady that checked us in was new and we have to pay full price Didn’t even try to accommodate us at all So disappointing

Jeiden Arellano

We checked in August 4th The initial front staff was not the most pleasant (sorry it irked you we couldn’t find our rewards account number) but other than that the room was clean, the shower had good water pressure and the rest of the staff was pretty friendly Breakfast is not free you either pay extra for it at the time of booking or they charge you at the time of receiving it

It’s a good location though so there are plenty of restaurants around that serve breakfast I recommend booking online as calls are outsourced, it was hard to understand the attendant and it was not an option we had to sign up for the rewards Which we were then not able to use for the discounted rate because the front desk couldn’t find us in their system and was very rude when we tried offering the number we received in the email

We stayed for one night and we loved it The room was comfortable and suited our family of 5 Breakfast was great and we loved the selection

The common area is very welcoming and comfortable The staff was very friendly and helpful Our kids enjoyed the pool just said it was a little cold A hot tub would’ve been awesome We will definitely stay again if we’re in the area

Ryan Erwin

This is our first stay at the Marriott Pyramid in Albuquerque and I must admit that we’ve been impressed Our room is very nice and comfy The showers are hot and have great water pressure and the bed is great

Now for the best part of our experience here – the guy behind the desk running the show tonight – Drew We can’t thank him enough for his hospitality He went above and beyond to accommodate our family after being on the road for 15 hoursGreat service and a 2am check in are a rare and unusual combination, but Drew knocked it out of the park

Lindsay Norman

We love this hotel and stay every time we visit Albuquerque We had a room with no AC and they happily moved and upgraded us, it was a smooth process so that was appreciated The staff is professional and very kind and accommodating

It’s my understanding the hotel is severely understaffed based on their standard and the hotel was booked to capacity during our stay You can feel that but everyone takes it in stride Joe, the bartender was amazing and we hope y’all give him a raise! Thanks for a great experience

Nick Peterson

We stayed here for two nights on the back end of a 5,000+ mile road trip across the country We desperately needed a day or two of rest and relaxation before we made the final 750 miles home – and decided to stay hereThe bad: The price per night for this place is insane

They wanted over $400 a night for the room alone, which of course is crazy expensive Back when we paid for rooms in Vegas I never paid anywhere near that, and for much bigger, newer roomsMediocre: The poker room was drastically understaffed and the staff they did have was not friendly Not that I blame them really, they are overworked and underpaid The seats were not comfortable, they didn’t have many trolleys for drinks and whatnot and the beverage service left a lot to be desiredThe good: The staff is friendly, the casino is well lit, secure and well stocked The hotel and the rooms themselves were great, very clean – just not worth the price tagAt the end of the day if they want to charge high end Vegas prices they need to provide a high end Vegas experience, and that includes a solid, amenable wait staff and gambling staff

S A Lands

Customer service is horrible since the pandemic Everything is a fight here We rented their super suite for $1500/night for a girls trip

They made every aspect of the stay difficult Weeks before we requested early check in When we arrived, they wouldn’t honor it AND even tried to make us wait an extra hour to check in at 4! The restaurant wouldn’t take a reservation and we’re going to make us wait an hour The sports bar tried the same thing b it there were so many empty tables that we walked in and sat down-after they’d hassled us all day, we’d had enough Our trip to the spa was bad too They had oversold day passes so the hot tubs and saunas were too crowded to use even if you’d paid for a service and expected the amenities They obviously have way too much funding from somewhere, because they don’t care a thing about guest experience!

Roshelle White

Extremely disappointed! We booked our room for one night, on a Monday and it was $300 When we got to our room and decided to checkout our dinner options, we realized we could only eat at the fast food grill The sports bar was closed for maintenance

I decided to DoorDash dinner only to find out that the dasher can only deliver to the front desk and I had to go downstairs and get my order We tried to bring up alcohol that we bought at the store but the casino wouldn’t allow it When we asked where we would be able to buy beer in the casino, a security guard pointed us towards the gift shop that closed at 7pm By this time it was already after 7 There were only two towels in the bathroom of our double queen bed room Makes no sense We found a long black hair in the tub The only positive is the bathroom had a really nice tub with good water pressure We went down to the casino and found out that your not allowed to drink on the casino floor You have to sit at the bar and finish your drink! I have never been to a casino this terrible No fun!!

Jessica Wojtasek

Had an excellent stay here on our first trip to ABQ The neighborhood is awesome – it’s residential but walking distance to several craft breweries and doesn’t have the touristy vibe of old town (although you can walk there in like 15 min if that’s on your list) It’s really centrally located and totally safe

The rooms are very well decorated with local art and prints I felt kind of pampered here, there are a lot of really nice personal touches Jesse was a wonderful host and has done an amazing job of restoring this propertyWe stayed in the Lottie suite and loved having a kitchen and living room

David Divine

We really enjoyed our stay at the Painted Lady The suite was immaculate and plenty of room for my wife and I along with my folks Plenty of nice touches, especially if you’re interested in exploring the beer scene in Albuquerque

Jesse is super friendly and knowledgeable to steer you in the right direction for breweries and/or restaurants The courtyard is comfortable and bright My wife really enjoyed the fire pit We will definitely return

Jennie Garst

We loved, loved, loved our stay in the Lottie suite at the Painted Lady Bed & Brew! Jesse thought of every detail to make a stay at the Painted Lady perfect The suite was beautiful and cozy and beyond our expectations Jesse was such a wonderful host too

We enjoyed talking with him and learning about the area and the Painted Lady We can’t wait to go back and enjoy another stay! Thanks, Jesse!

A great place to stay! We were on the road about 14 hours and this was an oasis in the desert! It was clean, pet-friendly, and the employees were so nice The hotel was surrounded by a variety of great restaurants and the neighborhood was nice, too I didn’t love having to go all the way downstairs for ice but I survived

I noticed the parking lot was well-lit when we parked but I woke up around 3 or 4 in the morning and it seemed the lights where we parked had gone out The room was super-clean and a good size The bed was a little firm but maybe that’s because the hotel seems pretty new It was a great start to a long vacation

Jarrod Fox

This place was great It was clean and tidy I absolutely love the kitchenettes or whatever they are called

My biggest issue was with the desk person on the date that we arrived While friendly to me, my wife had a different experience She went down at one point to get me a soda from the snack area and due to being exhausted from not sleeping well, she didn’t understand what the front desk staff person was saying When asked for clarification, she got snapped at Later on; in the early morning, my wife went back to the snack area to grab something to boost her blood sugar She grabbed a few items and waited for about 5 minutes or so before hitting the service bell No one came She continued to wait and still no one came She put the items back and came back to the room Other than that, we enjoyed our stay We wished we could have stayed longer!! Would definitely come back

Michael Glass

As someone who spends the majority of my year on the road (upwards of 17 nights a month) I normally use Hilton properties, but this fantastic hotel has converted me to Marriott! Not only is the location ideal, and the accommodations well kept, but the staff makes all the difference! Between Dolores who obviously gives the place an expert touch and the fantastic management staff that Charlene and Cheyenne have perfected and then the maintenance / engineering guys Tom and Tim always making themselves available and then Cameron being a fantastic face for the team I am lucky to have been here for the last few months Denise greets me every morning at breakfast, and I can’t even begin to name all of the housekeeping staff that have made this rough stretch of my life away from home so much better than I expected! You would be lucky to stay here, and I know that they always stay pretty booked with guests, but the cool part is seeing the fact that this team makes all the difference for their guests! I’m glad to be one of their visitors and I’m going to make this my primary plan for all future visits to Albuquerque

Where do I begin to describe this astonishingly beautiful place that we stayed at for 3 nights in July, 2022 to celebrate a family member’s birthday It is located on the outskirts of Albuquerque My spouse and I had a lovely queen suite with a living area with gas fireplace and a private flower-filled small patio

Our son had a twin bedroom with a small patio also The bed linens in each room were of a lovely, high quality When you first arise, they bring a delicious homemade muffin or scone and coffee to your room A little later there is a gourmet picture-perfect breakfast made right in the open kitchen The setting is reminiscent of an enclosed compound that is contemporary with a New Mexico vibe There are trees and flowers flourishing among the large flagstone patio area and there is also a swimming pool It is obvious that every detail was carefully and thoroughly thought out by the owner and architect when this small hotel was built It gets close to perfection

Carolyn Leavitt

We truly enjoyed our stay Amy’s hospitality was unsurpassed The amenities were wonderful and the breakfast was THE best

This is not a 5 star rating because of the “passive cooling” that was in place when we visited Unfortunately, our room was very warm which made sleeping difficult, despite the use of a provided fan and opening the window Thank you Sarabande

Charlene McCurn

A little late writing this review as we stayed at Sarabande in April Everything was so wonderful and Amy was so attentive Breakfast was absolutely delicious and our room was very comfortable

We enjoyed sitting by the fire pit in the evenings enjoying a glass of wine We would definitely stay here again if we are ever in Albaquerque!

This property is great Reasonable price, great rooms, excellent customer service from Brian at the Registration Desk and the restaurant staff too The room was clean, well maintained, and quiet

There is not much available within walking distance for food or entertainment as I had hoped there would be, so I was bored for the evening The quality, preparation, and service for the food was excellent! pool was very full with other guests and kids which was great for them, but I would have liked to have a live band or musician during the evening Overall a great experience

Avenda Marketplace

We came into town for a weekend getaway this place looked amazing online they really fluff it up With anticipation of a relaxing weekend by the pool we find out after booking that the pool is closed for no particular reason Called Guest services several times to get basic information about places to eat or fresh linen and towels no one answered

They also offer breakfast but it’s an Additional charge I suggest going to FLYING STAR CAFE it was a place I found online and it was amazing I wish they had a hotel I would probably have had a better time Unfortunately Crowne Plaza doesn’t meet its online presence so be forewarned you are just paying for a bed and a shower and a pretty lobby (why they got the 3rd star)

JL DaPilot

Well as far as hotels I would recommend just die to the fact that the housekeeper named Ruby went above and beyond for what ever I needed or my family needed She never hesitated and just because I recommend this their service Excellent when it comes to the rooms Now as for the front desk can get busy but they are very friendly as soon as they greet you you feel welcomed

Try it once won’t be disappointed Two pools are better than one and the view is pretty cool

Overall very pleased with this hotel The room was clean and the staff very kind Loved seeing so many other dogs

Felt very safe while hereI would love to see how the hotel changes following the upcoming renovation It would be great if there could be sheer curtains as in addition to the provided black out curtains for privacy Breakfast also could have used some fresh fruit Otherwise very pleased with our stay!

Richard Fountain

Very solid experience with our large group Smooth check-in, rooms were clean and well-prepared One room had weak A/C so the window had to be open at night to cool it down

Very good breakfast layout Pool and hot tub were excellent! Hotel pays very good attention to vehicle and personal security; private security personnel patrol periodically overnight and keycard access is required to enter the building after 8pm

Shanon Craudell

Extremely friendly and professional staff, clean and spacious rooms

highly recommend The only critique I have is the need to address the lack of signage for their entry I stayed at a horrible hotel across the street a week previously because I failed to notice that the LA Quinta was there Bright signage would be helpful for tired travelers to see when seeking a nice room to rest their head

Friendly staff, clean rooms, nice pool but it is 4ft to 5ft for those that have kiddos Easy location to get to and from places Lots of places to eat nearby

Little noise from freeway The north rooms have great view of sandias South room great view of sunsets Pillows are very flat and soft, recommend asking for extra pillows if you like more support

Beth Harrelson

The hotel was clean and most of the staff were helpful and friendly My brother made my reservation and when I got there I gave my own credit card to pay for the room However, they still charged his card instead of mine

This was not a big deal, I just gave him the money What was a big deal was the breakfast While we were finishing ours a family came in with 3 young children There was still 25 minutes left for breakfast but there was seriously almost nothing left When the woman asked the attendant about getting something to eat she was told by the attendant she didn’t have time to put anything else out for them If the breakfast is served until a certain time, then food should be available The young lady who was working was very rude and she locked everyone out exactly on the hour I felt so bad for this family

Keshia Chino

Thinking of a nice get away for 4th of July Booked two rooms, for two nights Got robbed on the very first night

And was told by the employees there’s very little camera footage coverage And there’s nothing they can do about it Spoke to the security and was told the cameras cover the entire premises and are clear They also told us that a week ago this hotel was robbed and there was no footage of the robbery and their thinking it’s a inside job Nowhere to be found are the security footage Cops were no help at all except for the insurance wants to up our rate The same night my son got sliced by their light fixture in the pool So, all in all don’t stay here or even think about it And this is how they treat their guests and loyal diamond members

Stefanie Crosswhite

Me and my husband stayed 2 days here at this hotel, it was our 23 anniversary, I have to say it was very nice and quiet not too busy at all We swam and relaxed in the hot tub with no one else around it was so nice Beds could be a little more comfy and the water didn’t drain in the tub properly, other then that it was awesome!! Would stay here again for sure

Oh and props to Jill she was so sweet!


The girl at the front desk, Celeste, was very nice That was the biggest plus I remember, but other than that, there is not a whole lot of plus when it comes to this hotel Unless you count the black sock that was in the corner of the room when we arrived

Maybe the plus was the bobby pin on the floor (so we knew the room had not been vacuumed)? I have stayed at worse hotels, but I have also stayed at much better hotels for the same price It is not in the greatest locationunsafe intersection where Google tells you to turn left, but if you don’t want to get in an accident, it is best to drive up a little further and do a U-turn But the main reason we will no stay again iswe stayed in the beginning of July and I was looking through my bank activity and I saw a $197 charge from this hotel on August 1st (3 weeks later) I disputed the charges and then called the hotel The nice girl said that she had been fielding calls like mine for some time She explained that for the whole month of July a portion of the tax was not being taken out of each customers payment method It sure would have saved me some trouble knowing that my card was not subject to fraud like my bank thought it might be Would an email to each customer have been too much to ask for?

Fernando Anorve

Stayed here a year ago forgot to write a reviewBeds were comfortable, sheets clean, pillows nice and comfy Did not have any issues with the front desk at all very friendly when leaving with a “have a good day” , “have a good night”

Floors in the room were clean Very spacious for all of our luggageI would recommend this place

This has got to be the Joke of the Hilton Brand They do not live up to the brand and service that you expect and get from other Hilton hotels At check in my room wasn’t ready, so went to dinner and came back

Still not ready? “We only have 2 in housekeeping” was the response I was given So, I get stuck in another part of the building Pool is closed for remodeling No other options (According to other reviews I should be GLAD of that)Being a Hilton Honors Member doesn’t get you anything more, as they charge your card for the benefits, they are supposed to offer free to you I have talked to hotel management and even hotel chain customer serviceThe room was clean, and the a/c worked Shower head was so dirty with corrosion and “water conservation” you couldn’t get wetUsed the restaurant for breakfast, only 2 tables had anyone at them Waited close to 10 minutes to get waited on Then I had to eat without silverware and napkins Finally got up and went to get my own coffee that I ordered from the grab and go station at the door There they had no lids, stirrers or sugarI have stayed at many Garden Inns, and multiple Hilton brands in my corporate and personal travels over the last 20 years This is by far the worst experience I have seen ever My next stay in Albuquerque will NOT be at this place

My room had technology problems Requested a fix, new remote was sent which didn’t fix the problem Notified front desk at check out, ask about a credit to offset

None was given Later, once my invoice was emailed to me, learned that I had been billed for restaurant charges that were not mine (occurred before my check-in even) I had to spend time resolving this from work, speaking with Janet who said she was a manager Not a good experience She was very condescending and needed to perform research before offering a credit Once the credit hit my account, it was short by $5So silly So many places for me to choose when I travel Why treat people this way?

Adam Figuracion

The hotel room was decent, but the rest was alright It will be better when renovations are finished The business center was under renovation and the door says to ask the front desk for help with business center needs

I needed some documents printed, but the front desk said they couldn’t help me, so I had to go to Staples The pool was very uninviting with its rotten smell

We stayed here for 2 nights The staff were all very friendly and helpful We loved the free 5:30 pm Kickback Meal, and the free breakfast

We enjoyed the hot tub and pool every night Our room was super clean and the beds are very comfy We were in a room facing the interstate and we did hear a lot of road noise even with white noise playing on our phone I would bring ear plugs just in case you are on the interstate side of the hotel I would not hesitate to stay here again We loved it!

Remember to use Hᴏᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking a stay This website will compare countless booking websites and normally will have rates a lot cheaper than others! You’re welcome :)! This resort is one of the best in the area

I have been coming here for years If you stay for a few days you definitely won’t be let downGreat location and the rooms were great Over and above everything though was how the staff treated everybody So consistent! Incredibly nice folks In addition, the breakfast was one of the best hotel breakfasts I’ve had Something for absolutely anyone Keep up the great work Drury Inn!!

Lynne Shaughnessy

This is the second time we stayed at this Drury All the staff is super friendly and polite Always helpful and proactive in service

The dinner and breakfast included are very good and the 2 cocktails after a day on the road welcome 😉 The hotel is clean and well maintained The bed was a little soft for me, but I think beds and pillows are difficult to please everyone The price is very fair for the room and 2 meals We’ll be back Thank you

It was a great place to stay! The rooms were very clean and neat! Beds were comfy This hotel is very convenient for parents or even people that are looking for a place to stay for the hospital, it’s connected basically to the hospital just with a overhead pass way to get to the hospital I find this very helpful in the hotel because some people need a place to stay for there children!


A nice hotel Love the rooms Very clean, kudos to housekeeping!I did have problems with the heating/cooling system in one of the King suites

It kept coming on coolvery cooland would not go to heat or even turn off I was treated like an idiot by several people about it because they didn’t believe I had done everything correctly to get heat They figured I didn’t know how to use a very easy thermostatI finally got someone who gave me another room and later told me I was right Someone had reprogrammed it to be nothing but cold, constantly, and they were working on fixing it Her name was Angel, I think, and she did me right and I appreciate itI also had concerns about an extra 40 dollar charge and someone did eventually get back to me with an explanation I appreciate that tooSo, despite the rocky start I had with being at this hotel for the first time, I liked the second room and the hotel Breakfast was typical free fare, but it was cooked well and tasted good Nice clean eating space They also had chocolate milk which gives them total brownie points!!I would stay there again Nice location too

Rebekah Deane

We arrived to check in to our room that we had reserved a month prior, specifically called the location to reserve a handicap accessible room with a roll-in shower on the first floor as we are traveling with our son who uses a wheelchair When we arrived we were told that those rooms were all taken & were only available on a first-come, first-serve basis What is the purpose of a reservation if they do not reserve the room you requested? While the girl at the front tried to be accommodating & contacted her manager who approved a discount, it still defeats the purpose of a reservation and made life more difficult and has us assured that we will not be using Marriott in the future if this is their policy

Very clean rooms with comfortable beds, great view from our room and excellent breakfast The cleaning staff were very attentive However, the best part of our stay was the Customer service and welcome we received from Adriana

From the moment we arrived going above and beyond to accommodate our requests She remained very pleasant, continued to answer phones and took care of other guests at the same time During our entire stay her level of Customer Service was exceptional

Ken Long

Home2 was outstanding across the board At the front desk the customer service representative Phonomary (my spelling is probably incorrect) was very helpful with information about the city that may our visit more enjoyable than it would have been without her help The room and the hotel in general was very clean

At breakfast the food was prepared well and the personnel supporting the breakfast were friendly and helpful It was a pleasure to stay here I would look forward to staying here again

Friendly staff Nice rooms and hotel Excellent value for our money

I would stay here again and recommend it to othersThe only thing to add is that the room that “sleeps 6” really only sleeps 5 – or sleeps 4 plus 2 kids We were able to make due though

This is hands down the worst IHG hotel I have ever stayed at With work I stay long term in many hotels which gives me a great insight overall I am not impressed with this establishment

Pros: we had a very select few of the employees that were hospitable and a joy to see Two of the front desk ladies , Ellie and Debbie, I believe ,were great Always smiled and greeted guests and even made my young son feel very welcomed The dinning room hostess Aida was also very helpful and hospitable She went out of her way almost every morning to talk with us and my sonThe breakfast was decent and they even offered some finger foods in the eveningsThe hotel had a lot to offer such as a small gym, pool room with hot tub and a very nice fenced off patio area Unfortunately the gym room had standing water in it more than once during our stay allowing electrical plugins to be submerged ( picture added ) the hot tub was out of order more times than not and the out door patio was used as a smoking pit by both guests and employees rendering it useless to anyone wanting to just enjoy outsideCons:Upon arriving our room was pretty outdated and showed not only damages but severely worn out furniture The room was FILTHY ( pictures added) the foul smell of the room was never conquered during our three month stay here Countless odor sprays, candles, fans, even left the windows open most nights when cool enough to try and air it out When we left it still stank and the smell stayed with some of our linens even after arriving back home days laterAlso upon arriving our ice maker didn’t work We called the front to notify and we were told maintenance would be there shortly, they showed up three days later Upon arriving the employee turned the entire unit off destroying $300 in groceries and leaving my $1000 worth of insulin sitting in a non refrigerated box The hotel did give us a $300 credit to our bill after a month of asking about it with several employees and finally calling IHG guest phone lineThey decided we not only needed a new fridge at this time but a new microwave and dish washer which did nothing but cause large amounts of inconvenience and more messes for me to clean up The employees WALKED all over my kitchen counters leaving boot prints and left saw dust from drilling I was left to clean this myself ( pictures added) They also left the heavy microwave hanging by one screw for over an hour while they were out of the room Leaving my 6 year old son and I in the room with the barley hanging lawsuit The dishwasher was the worst The guy who installing it was clueless and installed it incorrectly not once, not twice, but three timesThe first time he left all the packing material in it and started the washer Left that mess for me to clean up and throw out It also leaked , flooding our room every time we used it We called the first three times and gave up on their competency after thatThe housekeeping staff were useless They spent most of their time on their cell phones or in the office next to our room where they were disrespectfully loud on the daily We asked them twice if we could have a few fresh towels and we’re told they couldn’t speak English sorry, and had backs turned on usAlso the hotel staff took all the front spots leaving the paying guests to walkOur encounter with the management was not dealt with professionally and we actually received a complaining phone call from her because we called IHGThe amount of dog urine in the ONLY elevator was disgusting and smelled great on those nice hot days Speaking of hot days our ac was unable to keep up and hit 90’ in our room more than once Probably due to lack of maintenance on their machine Take a peek at the rooms air filter( picture added )The list of inconveniences we experienced while here are absolutely staggering and would be comical if I listed them allDespite being the highest rated IHG rewards member you can achieve , we are taking a break from IHG after this stay I am currently sitting in a Marriott as I type this

Emily Burke

Breakfast and room were decent, there’s a nice courtyard in the back, and the location is pretty quiet and close to lots of food and store optionsHowever, the water in my bathroom never got past lukewarm even though the kitchen sink would get hot… and the exercise room is kind of a bust The three machines are all on the same power strip and even with nobody else in the room, 5 minutes on the treadmill caused the power strip to kick off

This happened twice and both times I nearly hyperextended my knee because of the abrupt stop of the machine The free weight options were also either 5 pounds or 30+ pounds… not super helpful The pool was also constantly crammed with screaming kids, which wasn’t always the nicest background noise when trying to work in my room or be on meeting calls Also meant I never had a chance to just go sit in the hot tub Adult-only hours for the pool/hot tub would be a great management change!Overall, probably wouldn’t stay here again, personally

We have stayed at the Chocolate Turtle Bed & Breakfast at least 5 or 6 times in the past couple of years Denise and Keith are warm and welcoming hosts Everything is spotlessly clean, all the rooms are well decorated in charming Southwestern decor

One year we were there in December and each of the bedrooms had its own small Christmas tree, each one decorated differently The beds are super comfortable, the breakfasts are wonderful, the common rooms and grounds very inviting for relaxing and making new friends Each time we stay, we say we’re going to stay longer next time!

christo phett

this was our first time at Chocolate Turtle and we will definitely return! Keith and Denise were great hosts and the location was unbelievable The rooms were decorated wonderfully and the communal areas were equally as nice The backyard and patio were just incredible

Beautiful views of the Sandia mountains (especially at sunset) and great birdwatching (and hearing them singing in the morning) Breakfast was amazing and filling They even had some souvenirs available for gifts The nearby town had quaint restaurants and shops We were truly impressed and can’t wait to visit again!

Lynn Kronowit

Thank you so much Keith and Denise for letting us celebrate our daughter’s wedding at your beautiful bed and breakfast Everything was perfect (except for the rain), but you both made us feel so welcome and your b&b is such a perfect spot for anything from a wedding to just a peaceful, relaxing stay Zorro and Rico added to the tranquility and enjoyment

Keith created an excellent breakfast and I just want to say that I would highly recommend the Chocolate Turtle Again, our thanks and gratitude for making my daughter’s wedding day so perfect
