This is a great hotel very clean and up to date. The rooms are. Ice the beds must be new as mine was one of the most comfortable I have found on the road in quite a while( the bed was firm). Plenty of places to eat and the breakfast was fantastic. The staff was very nice and very attentive....

You could always stay in Santa Fe, but you would be missing a real gem. Buffalo Thunder is such a diamond in the ruff. The rooms are beyond beautiful and spacious. The restaurants and entertainment are the best.

This Hotel perfect place for a quiet getaway with great food choices and a nice Casino downstairs. Staff was always friendly and helpful The lively Casino doesn't take away from the peaceful, quiet of the Hotel.

We checked in under the impression that it was a 4 star casino and hotel. The lobby is beautiful. Walk to your room, and the hallways smell like pine sol and cigarettes. The rooms don't look as pictured. We changed rooms 3 times and took a downgrade of the 2 queens to be able to have the fireplace in the...

I love the hotel, the casino, the area Santa Fe, everything I experienced. I did not utilize the spa or pool, but did go to Red Sage restaurant, which was very good. A bit pricey though. I will certainly be staying at Buffalo Thunder again and also in Taos, which is also a wonderful little town.

The resort is amazing!! The casino was a lot of fun too. We were particularly impressed with the quality of food at the Red Sage Steakhouse. The one thing that made every experience exceed our expectations was the staff. It is very clear why this place thrives...the people. While I had one or two minor concerns, for instance, no doggie...

Well the rooms we had were clean and good. The Hotel & Casino were great. Just the service has to improve much. During breakfast the team was absolutely over challenged. Dirty tables everywhere and a long waiting before we got seated. The same during dinner. Maybe next time it will be better.

We took a family vacation to New Mexico this year. The resort was very nice, just 13 miles outside Santa Fe and a bargain for the price versus the hotels in or around Santa Fe. The drive was not bad to and from the city and accommodations were very nice- fireplace in the room with two queen-sized beds. If you...

The property is a 15 min ride from the airport but well worth it. Great views, large rooms, great restaurants, gym ,spa ,golf and casino. We upgraded to the suite so our rooms were very spacious and one had a fireplace which was very nice since the temperature outside was in the upper 20's.
