My brother-in-Law, his gal, and myself had dinner on 3/5/16. The "skillet" enchiladas were absolutely terrible. My brother-in-law had beef, and his gal had chicken, neither could stomach them. The small bowl of beans were way under cooked, to the point we joked about using them in a slingshot for rabbit hunting. I had the burger with bacon, green chile,...

The Santa Claran Hotel Casino has become very popular since my 2014 review. We continue to go monthly and enjoy each of our stays. With the popularity you now need to plan and book well ahead of time to reserve your room. Upgrading to a suite is very hard to come by as the hotel is normally fully booked. New...

My wife and I stayed the night here and it was a very pleasant stay. The rooms are very homey. The bed is very soft and comfortable. Very clean Establishment. The hotel has a very nice lobby coffee shop. The Grill has awesome French toast. Would love to come back again and explore the history. Love it.

We had a great stay at the Santa Claran. The rooms were nice and very clean. The housekeeping staff was very accommodating. Rusty was very friendly and very helpful she told us about some spots to spot and check out while we were in Northern Nm. The restaurant was good but the food was over priced. The casino needs more...

We had a terrific time at the Santa Claran. Can't possibly say enough about how friendly and helpful the staff are. Everyone, from the hotel to the casino and the restaurant, went out of their way to make our time there pleasant. The room was comfortable with a nice view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the distance. Wish...

I truly enjoy staying at this hotel. The beds are comfortable, the indoor pool is nice as is the hot tub (when it's working which it tends to be down a lot) and the overall hospitality you receive from employees is wonderful. The casino is really nice even though they got rid of a lot of my favorite machines I...

This review is for the new Grill Resteraunt. Since it is not on TripAdvisor yet I have stayed many times at the hotel, very nice staff and rooms. Very clean. Make reservations way in advance.
