Resort: Very nice, great conditions, and in a great location if you want to be out of Santa Fe to explore the area! Rooms: Very nice, big, comfy, clean and quiet. Staff: Friendly and helpful. Great Stay overall, my only knock was the hot water was a little inconsistent. I was part of a large business group here for meetings....

Exceptional room with ample space; room was extremely clean and nicely decorated; bathroom was large with ample amenities. All staff was friendly and professional. Complimentary breakfast (buffet was my choice) was very delicious! Highly recommend this hotel!

I found this hotel/casino online when booking our road trip through the U.S. would definitely visit here again. The only disappointment was having to pay for valet as a registered guest. Highly recommended.

I requested a room with a balcony near the elevator and it was very quiet. The room was wonderful with a great view of pool and mountains. I loved being able to take the elevator straight down to level below 1st floor and have it open right to the casino. I loved the non-smoking section of slot machines. We had...

Buffalo Thunder is a wonderful place to stay. Setting is beautiful and if you enjoy a bit of gambling, so convenient to walk to the casino from your room. Although you can't drink in the casino the bars are close by. The indoor and outdoor pool areas are very nice and food is also good. Had the best filet of...

We love this hotel, its clean friendly and beautiful.But the buffet is horrible. We earned the points in the casino to get it for less, and Im glad because I would have been very upset if we had paid full price. The breakfast was ok, but over priced for what you got. The deli was the best food we had...

On our way to Taos we made our first stop at Buffalo Thunder. It will be an easy place to return to. The Bell help at the front door was smiling and eager to help us unload, then waited patiently while we checked in. Our room was well appointed. There were a few small problems that a hotel with over...

Would we return? Yes! Beautiful resort and breath taking experience. Will recommend to all our family and friends. Many staff lacking in people skills. Training in public relations is needed. Buffet was a major disappointment. Food was plentiful but noted that many items were or appeared to taste as lacking in texture and taste. Indoor swimming pool health hazard due...

This property was lovely. It is just outside of Santa Fe but well worth the drive North. The hotel is new with amazing Native American decor. The room was neat, clean, and the bed and bedding very comfortable. I highly recommend having some salsa and guacamole made fresh right in front of you at the restaurant and then taken outside...

Upon arrival I was pleased to receive an upgraded room due to my Diamond Status. I was also given a code for free access to the Internet. However, the typical Diamond benefits stopped there. There is no lounge at this property. Therefore, I was offered a $10 credit at Starbucks on property or a free continental breakfast. Written literature given...
