Because I travel so often for work, what I'm finding very disappointing with mid-range hotel rooms is the lack of comfort due either to rowdy guest or stuffiness of the room. This particular hotel clearly uses bleach to improve cleaning of bed sheets, towels, and likely surfaces. Five minutes in the room and I had to open all the windows and blast the AC (late summer in very hot dessert) just to make the air breathable. But even though I left the windows open the entire time I was in the room, the chlorine scent was so overpowering I couldn't even sleep on the bed. I had to sleep on the cheap, tiny couch right next to the window to be able to breathe reasonably clean air. The chemicals in the air (again, you could detect chlorine very easily) were so concentrated they burned my eyes and stung my throat so I was sniffling and coughing all night.
I don't mean to be disrespectful, but I have no idea how this hotel earned a 4+ star rating with an "excellent" guest rating. Even without the chlorine issue I'd characterize it as average.

Room was clean but in need of renovation. Capet, again, clean but needs to be replaced or re-stretchied. Tub/shower and tiolet separate from vanity which I like but tub/toilet area is small. Heating/cooling unit worked but is in need of major repair or replacement. Flat panel TV and satellite were modern with true HD reception and working Guide. Most hotels/motels don't have true HD reception. Linen and towel were good and bed is adequate but not great. Door was hard to close and worked hard to insure it was latched and locked. This motel was fine for me and an overnight stay but not suitable for a romantic getaway. This place was also nearby for my appointment. The breakfast was adequate but don't expect much.

I chose this hotel because it is unique and conveniently located on the north side of Albequerque. The decor could use updating, but the room was clean, the bed very comfortable and the staff very friendly.
