“What nice place to stay even if not gambling.”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

This was a really nice hotel to stay at. The décor was very nice and the staff quite pleasant. The room was really nice, clean and kept up to date. It is pet friendly but you do not smell it. The casino is far enough from the hotel main areas that you don't get that crowded feeling. The rates are quite fair and you should indulge in the spa if you can.

Another wonderful casino stay in New Mexico at this gorgeous Hilton property attached to the Buffalo Thunder casino. This casino hotel, along with the Sandia casino hotel, has done the impossible. They have wonderful no smoking floors and rooms that have absolutely no smell of smoke from the casinos. Delightful! Our room was huge and the bathroom was gigantic with plenty of room for two people to have their own space! The beds were beautiful and comfortable and with lovely décor. Loved the outdoor pool and wandering through the lobby areas and casinos to not only gamble, but to see the artwork. We were there for the Belmont Stakes race, so the bar and racebook area was hopping with excitement! We had a great visit and next time we will definitely stay longer!

Room Tip: If anyone in your party has accessibility or walking issues, be sure to inform the front desk so tha...

I loved this hotel. The lobby is filled with amazing Native American art. The rooms were beautiful. I had a balcony with a fireplace in my room! It was stunning! There is a casino attached to the hotel - but I did not smell any smoke! The food was good. Buy your water and bring with you, it is pricey!

Best hotel I've stayed at in the state of NM. Rooms are always clean, comfortable and quite. Food and room cost is a little pricey but it's worth it. Kids really enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pool. Bring a jacket during late may early June. The temp is great during the day but may get a little chilly at night. DO NOT order room service unless you are willing to spend over $100 for 3 people and room service has an automatic 20% gratuity added. The buffet is the best value.

Wife and I spend 3 nights here a few weeks back to celebrate our Anniversary. The property is beautiful and well maintained. Rooms are as nice as any place we have stayed. It's an easy ride to Santa Fe. So why wouldn't we stay here again? First parking is a joke. How do build a resort without enough parking. The fact that 2 rows are for valet and 1/2 the spots are empty might have helped. The Casino is not Vegas style as advertised and the dealer acted like she didn't want to be there. We did not eat any meals at the hotel, the Trip Advisor reviews scared us away. The weekend we were there the property was full of families. Maybe they were running a special. So in summary, we would stay in Santa Fe next time. Just not enough good for a return.

My one night stay at Buffulo Thunder was fantastic! The golf course, the people, the accomodations were PRIMO! The area above Santa Fe was also beautiful. I would recommend this hotel to all! Charles E.

This is a great hotel and spa experience. The rooms are comfortable, attractive and well insulated from noisy neighbors and the bright sunlight. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The golf courses need much work but we were told that they are being renovated starting this summer. The spa is terrific, with great masseuses and accoutrements. It is close to Santa Fe so you have access to some terrific dining experiences outside the hotel, although the food at the hotel is also very good.
