Went to Santa Fe for a seed meeting! The company put us up in this hotel and casino. I'm not a gambler but I actually enjoyed the atmosphere of the casino and the people were so friendly! The Hotel was really nice and clean and the staff were absolutely helpful and went out of their way to make you feel...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 January 2017 via mobile

Stayed a few nights in this scenic environment. Artwork in lobby and throughout were fantastic. Staff were great. Had a very nice dinner at the The Red Sage. Breakfasts at the Iguana were outstanding. Nice walking trail near the golf course. Room was quiet & clean. Comfortable balcony to enjoy the 55 degree sun! Really nice Hilton

The hotel is very nice, clean and attractive. Selection of dining was not as nice, decided to eat outside the hotel for many of our meals. Casino was fun, but the air qualify is bad...needs better ventilation system for the smoke. Even the non smoking section was smokey. Overall it is a nice place for the money...the restaurants just seemed...

I stayed here on business for 7 days in early Feb 2017 for a sales conference. The hotel facilities were as one would expect from Hilton. The leisure facilities were pretty good, including a pool, gym, golf course and 'butterfly trail' running track. Scenery nearby is interesting, but the resort is in the middle of the desert so there's not...

This Hotel has so much going for it! It is located in a Native American Nation right outside of Santa Fe. It adjoins the Buffalo Thunder Casino and is a entertainment destination all by itself. The Hotel is managed by Hilton and the Hilton Staff is "top notch." Very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The rooms are full of...

We had a great time. It was nice to stay at a hotel that has a casino where you don't have to go outside to get to it. There are also several great places to eat. Rooms were great, but far to walk in long hallways for older family members that have a hard time walking!

We stayed at Buffalo Thunder in January, and it was definitely not crowded!! The customer service was pretty amazing, but there were room service trays in the halls, for over 24 hours. The room service trays are the only reason that I am not giving this resort 5 stars!! We played a lot in the casino, and they covered almost...

I was at the resort from Saturday the 4th until Friday the 10th. A lot of time for one location. Happily there was a golf course and a casino attached to the hotel. Busy on weekends and quiet during the week this time of year. Friendly staff but it is located outside downtown Santa Fe and can be desolate. Was...

Very nice and clean rooms. Some staff went over and beyond others were very rude wasn't consistent. Lost a personal item that was never returned was very disappointed. Also had a very loud neighbor that turned out to be a hotel employee had to call Security three times and problem was never resolved.

Dear Charlotte, Thank you for your review! I am glad your room was comfortable during your stay. My sincere apologies however for the mishap with a discourteous neighboring guest and hotel personnel. I am addressing all issues accordingly with hotel and security management; I am pleased to know that our front-office manager pro-actively applied the appropriate adjustment to your portfolio...
