This place has everything you need! Restaurants, store, deli, casino, spa, and much more! Rooms are spacious and extremely quiet, just what I was looking for for a weekend getaway. Rooms were clean and tidy. Staff very nice. My only hangup was no microwave in room, but I am sure they are offered if you call and ask for one.

I love the hotel and amenities including the bar and casino. However, if you wish to stay for longer than a day or two, stay next doors at the Homewood Suites. The Hilton doesn't have laundry or a microwave so we had to get shuttled to the other hotel. Plus Homewood Suites has breakfast!

We stayed for one night. The hotel is beautiful. The staff was very friendly. Our room was very clean and the decor so pretty. Would love to go back and take advantage of their spa. Little disappointed in their casino. The machines were confusing and a little misleading on the amount you are betting. We didn't stay long.

This was a great place to stay. It was clean and bright. The Native American artwork throughout the hotel and convention center was outstanding. The front desk couldn't be more helpful. The room had a gas fireplace with 2 queen beds. We were on the top floor(5th). We had a good size balcony with two comfy chairs and a small...

The rooms were clean and amenities good. The location is well outside Santa Fe but they have a shuttle to town that runs a couple of times a day. However we experienced several problems that went unresolved. I would not return to this hotel.

Arrived early and we were put into our room. Room was a junior suite with a fireplace. Very comfortable and cozy. Restaurant downstairs makes wonderful margaritas and wait staff are awesome. Our family really enjoys our stays there.

Hotel is very nice. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Staff was accommodating and casino was clean. Food options were ok. Location is a bit far if you want to see Santa Fe attractions. Pet-Friendly! Overall pleasant stay.

Have stayed many times at the Buffalo. Quality is always superior and worth the drive out of town. Enjoy the casino too! Buffet was good on previous stay and the breakfast was worth the money. Not a fan of the Turquoise Room down stairs, but it is ok.

We stayed Buffalo Thunder Casino for four nights in October. I was really impressed with the rooms, ambiance and beauty of the place. They have done a nice job of making people welcome and the inside and outside of the buildings are very nice. They have some neat paintings and sculptures besides the tall stained glass art neat the front...

Early evening on trip from Tucson to Denver and starting to snow. Opted for this Hotel, not realizing it was way off Interstate 25. We also overlooked that it is part of a casino complex which is just about the last place we want to be. Valet park man could not have been more helpful and friendly. He patiently emptied...
