Huge casino! It was noisy and busy. If you want a lot of gaming choices this is the place. The hotel part is very nice, if you can get a room. There is even a separate large room for non-smokers. It was quieter in there.

I have been to the casino several times and decided to stay last week. The room was great with a separate living room and master bedroom and a great view of pool and mountains. I was forced to shut the door to bedroom due to how the noise from hallway carries into room. Highly recommended.

If you are looking for a random hotel to sleep at or a place to golf or gamble, this place is fine. The room was clean, shower was nice, bed was adequate, check in staff pleasant. But as a resort, it’s pretty bad. I was here for a few nights for a conference. —There is nowhere to walk. No walking...

Although one might not choose to stay here cause of the fairly high prices, the Sandia Resort Casino is certainly worth a visit. Rooms are spacious and clean and have all the conveniences one would expect from a resort at this price. Lovely native american architecture, both on the outside and inside, great bar on the ground floor and even...

I've been disappointed by the buffet before but decided to give it another chance & this was by far the worst experience yet! The mac & cheese was tasteless, the ham was way too salty, mashed potatos were runny, salisbury steak tasted like bbq sauce & the pork chops didn't look appetizing what-so-ever.The ice cream & cookies weren't up to...

After staying in a very substandard "Hotel Blue" the night before, we were completely satisfied by the clean public areas, nice ammenities, spotless room, amazing bathroom, and of course the pool. I enjoyed drinks outside while my wife enjoyed the poolside. We have stayed at sandia before, and will definately stay again. The underground parking was a plus as we...
