“Wonderful Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

We had a great time at this Hotel. The beds were very comfortable with quality pillows and bedding. Very clean and luscious decor. The lobby contained some beautiful art. A good variety of in-house restaurants, gift shops and a fun casino. Located perfectly in convenient proximity to various tourists sites.

The showers in this facility are very high on the wall, have a very wide spray, and are not adjustable. If you are not at least 5'10" you would probably do better to take a bath! This is a very pretty facility, though, and the customer service and the food were both excellent. Access from Santa Fe is quick and convenient.

Hotel is 12 miles north of Santa Fe, very quiet and peaceful location. Hotel is very beautiful and nicely done rooms. Our second stay. Not golfers but they do have a golf course. Buffet breakfast was very go with excellent selections. Overall a very nice stay.

Stayed at Buffalo thunder as a home base for skiing at Taos and Ski Santa Fe. All of us guys enjoyed the entire time at BT. The rooms are comfortable and we'll decorated. We ate at the buffet which was good but not great. Gabriel's up the road towards Santa Fe is an excellent stop for Mexican/New Mexican food. Overall we loved our stay at BT.

We have stayed at Buffalo Thunder several times. THe first two times we had problems - paid full price and got a horrible room...view of the air conditioning systems I believe and it was far away from the casino. The front desk people were apparantly ready to go home and could care less about us.
BUT the past couple of times we had a really good time. Staff friendly and we were able to get the towers above the casino. Had dinner at the Turqouis trail...drinks and nachos great value for the money and all was really good. The rooms are really nice - we had a strange stain on the comforter...but didn't see it until we were checking out. Otherwise I would have requested it to be replaced...BUT I have no doubt that they would corrected this with no problem. THE ONLY thing I have a problem with....not too many choices for breakfast. Wish they had a coffee bar w/pastries like Sandia in Albuqurqe.

Room Tip: There are two towers one above the casino...just an elevator ride away...they other is way on the ot...

We recently stayed for a last minute honeymoon getaway, never again will we return. They put us in a cheaper room then what we paid for. Staff was rude and would not even offer to fix it. Room service was a way over priced joke. $20 for a 10 inch pizza that came in a 16 inch box that they will not even put cheese on. But that is ok because if you are really hungry you can go to one of their many places to eat, no one will wait on you and you will have to wait till you are done eating to even get your drink. I recommend driving up the road to Santa Fe to eat because the 4 places we ate at Buffalo Thunder were horrible. There was trash in the room still from the people who had the room before us. When I was walking from the resort to the casino, I had a staff member who was walking and texting run into me and then she got rude with me. We were told that there was free wifi, but they forgot to mention that it is only free in the lobby and if you want it near your room then you have to pay $10 for only 24 hours of internet...not wifi. Any time we tried to talk to staff about our concerns, all we got was attitude. You get better customer service at a Motel 6.

Hal L, General Manager at Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder, responded to this review, 5 May 2014
Dear Jimmy,
Thank you for taking the time to share comments regarding your recent stay at Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder. Celebrating a last-minute Honeymoon should have been a memorable experience and it appears based on your review, we failed to meet your expectations in several areas. I'm especially concerned that you dined in four out of our six restaurants and not one of them impressed you.
I would enjoy speaking with you personally about your visit and have listed below, my direct number to my office as well as my email address. I'm confident that should you give us another opportunity to serve you, we will not only meet, but hopefully exceed your expectations.
Sincerely,

Hal Leonard
General Manager

Room service needs allot of help. The sink in our room was falling apart. The room smelled of dog and lots of powdered carpet cleaner. The carpets in the rooms require a good cleaning. Debbie at the spa gives the best facial I have ever had. She was awesome.
