I notice there were several hotels in the same price range but I went with HIE bc I have stayed at others. This location is older, hallway is musky smelling, rooms should be cleaner. For the price it is not worth it. As far as positive there is plenty of parking, easy access to highway, fridge in room. Bring your...

I would like to start off by saying all the staff go the extra mile to make your stay as comfortable as possible, I work in the communication industry, so I spend most of the year in a hotel, I tend to move from hotel to hotel even if I'm in the same area for an extended time. Same place...

I'll never stay here again, once was enough. I went to the front desk after breakfast because my card didn't work in the door. I asked Amber if I had the correct room. She said "yes", and reprogrammed my card. I returned to my room on the third floor, and once again could not open the door. Back to the...

I am a member of IHG and stay in IHG affiliated hotels whenever possible. Most of those are Holiday Inn Express. This hotel is definitely showing its age. The sink drain ran slow and it sounded like we were going to fall into the room below us when we stepped into the tub. We addressed these issues with the staff...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express whenever we are on the road, and usually are pretty impressed. This hotel, however, is really showing its age. The room we stayed in, 229, was shabby overall with badly worn carpet and extremely dated design. On the plus side, the staff was very attentive and the morning breakfast well stocked.

Not easy being an employee in a busy economy hotel over a holiday weekend. Kids running around, more folks in guest rooms than a typical weekend, and breakfast gets hammered. Staff plowed through with smiles and energy. Impressive crew!

I recently moved to Santa Fe and stayed here five nights in transition. Staff couldn't have been more helpful, especially Alex, the manager. Clean through out. Very quiet at night. Well maintained breakfast bar.

We had a clean comfortable room that worked well for our one night stay. The wifi worked well in out room, and there was ample parking. We were in a room on the side of the hotel and noise was not at all a factor. The breakfast was typical for HIE, and the breakfast area was kept clean and well...

A bit off the freeway. But a nice quiet place to lay down at. The room is comfortable, has a small refrigerator and microwave for your convenience.
