“Relaxing Place to Stay and Play”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

We enjoyed relaxing, use of the exercise equipment, playing in the casino, and dinners together in a wonderful environment. The staff at the Buffalo Thunder Hilton treat you like family and are quick to resolve issues if they arise no matter how small.

Stayed at Buffalo Thunder recently. Terrific suite--fireplace in each room, comfy bed, easy to relax. The common space is lovely--much dramatic Indian art all around. Nice restaurant facility, but food not so good. Uninteresting and very pricey! Too bad, because there is so much of interest at the hotel.

The lobby and other public areas of Buffalo Thunder have some spectacular artworks displayed. The hotel and our room were very clean, and everything is Southwest style. You will have to pay for every little extra, but there are some great deals on the basic room rates.

If the rating was only on the facility it would be a 5. It is beautiful. I found the service average. The fact that wifi is not free was a surprise, I didn't have enough Hilton points to qualify. The worse part was the tone that I was told this over the phone. I got the same tone from the front desk in the morning when I asked if there was any coffee availalbe - there is a Starbucks down the hall. We stayed a year ago at the Homewood Suites on the same property and liked it much better. It had a great breakfast(and coffee!) and the staff was very friendly. We would stay there again.

I requested a room close to the elevator and was placed in the furthest room from the elevator! And when we arrived, even though we have status with Hilton, we waited three hours beyond check in time for room assignements. The food was good, the drinks cold and the property was gorgeous. Shame they couldn't accomodate high paying guests with room assignments until almost 6 oclock.

Room Tip: Don't arrive early. Don't expect the bar to open on time. In fact, don't expect anythin...

Stayed in one of their casita's with a view of the golf course. Very clean unit with all the amenities we needed....comfy bed and decent washroom/shower. Only complaint would be the thin walls....could hear our neighbors conversations. Easy access to the highway.

The breakfast was pretty good...they tried to mix it up every day. We checked out one dinner but opted to eat in the casino instead.

I was here for a convention nearby and the facility is neat and clean. In fact considering there is a casino as part of it its sanitized clean - spotless in fact. This is an absolutely wonderful location. Quiet, spacious rooms, well furnished and maintained and we got a government rate. With my Gold membership - free wifi and breakfast so that removes the most frequent gouge fees out there - with them gone the stay was perfect in every way. The hotel food is wonderful too - the locals come here to eat on purpose - its usually the reverse where you want to get away from the hotel to where the locals eat. I can't say enough good things about this place - if you are in the area choose this place. I dont play golf but if I did that would be more reason to stay here. The staff are accommodating and friendly too. Nothing at all wrong with my experience and I would repeat next time I am in the area this is the go to place for me. There is nothing here not to love.

Room Tip: I stayed on the 4th floor and it was completely quiet
