This is a nice place to stay while in the Santa Fe area. The rooms are spacious and the food options in the hotel are plentiful. The casino is small but can keep you entertained for a few hours each night. The staff is friendly as well. The parking lot is small and with the casino the lot is always... More

I had booked this resort for one night and we ended up changing our plans and arriving a day early. I called HHonors to book it on points and there was no problem linking it to our previous reservation. We got an executive 2 queen room on the top floor. Nice decor, fireplace and a balcony. Even though the balcony... More

We arrived at the hotel after a very long ride wishing to just check-in and relax. HOWEVER, ALL of the computers were down throughout the Hilton company worldwide. We waited in line with everyone else while they had THREE people at the desk trying to check in an enormous amount of people. Finally got to our room, only to find... More

This Hilton resort is very beautiful. Food is excellent. Hotel staff very friendly. Only overall drawback is that they are understaffed this lead to a few issues in our stay which although not major lead me to review them as very good versus excellent.

Let me first say that this really is a very beautiful hotel! Has a huge parking lot. My complaint is that we paid more to get a balcony w/ a view. We got a balcony and a big view of the parking lot, and a little view of the golf course. The BIG problem w/ this room having a balcony... More

The room was exquisite with old southwest decor. We had a fireplace which was really easy to operate and very romantic. Beautiful surrounding grounds, pool and golf course. Indian pottery and artwork throughout hotel. Plenty of restaurants to choose from with really good dishes and very reasonable prices on food and cocktails. The casino was fun, but we were disappointed... More

Buffalo Thunder Hilton Hotel and Casino is by far our choice for the best in the southwest United States. The hotel facilities are clean, well designed, and functional. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional in every way.

Enjoyable experience!...Spacious rooms and wonderful amenities...Happy Hour at Red Sage Bar is a must!...Two of the bartenders, Guy & Sandra, are fun and can make and recommend anything! One is by the book and the other is a bit more free spirited...I could also tell the hotel was very pet friendly...There is a pet courtyard with several doggie spot stations...

Staff needs customer service training. From front desk, who never said, "enjoy your stay with us, if you need anything let us know" Or when checking out. "How was your stay, hope you enjoyed your stay with us, we'll see you next time". Instead, I was handed my $50 deposit and a receipt. That is it! The Worker at the... More
