    Dear dennisa938, We regret that we were not able to provide you with the quality of service you deserve during your recent stay. Buffalo Thunder does have bell hops and valets, unfortunately, they must of been assisting other guests at your time of need.

    This hotel is excellent for both personal or business travel. The service is fantastic. The rooms are great along with excellent food choices. Everything is incredibly clean from the rooms to the lobby, the restaurants. Will always stay here when I’m in the area.
