The hotel is about a 20 minute drive from center of Albuquerque down I-40. The room was 129$ a night which I find to be a little pricey for how far away the hotel/casino is and for the amenities. Upon check in they make you sign a form indicating you will not have alcohol in your room, there is a... More

We Stayed 2 nights middle of the week during a snow Storm, price was exactly what it said for week days 99 bucks, restaurant isn't too shabby for a quick casual bite to eat either, nothing fancy. Room was fine too, I would recommend a room opposite of the highways

Although the casino and hotel looked nice (which we didn't use either) ..... the buffet was not that tasty. There are many items to choose from but the only thing that tasted fresh was the salad. The ribs were tender and moist also. Most of the things we got tasted like they were freezer burnt. The deserts were flavorless,and sadly... More

Rooms were clean and well appointed and staff was friendly and courteous. We booked travel as a group and we did have a bit of a snag with a slight miscommunication with the bell desk, but they fixed the problem right away. I did not gamble or dine here a So review is strictly for the hotel. Would definitely recommend.

Went for buffet during lunch. They have great food actually. Monday thru Wed. They have a special for like $7. Usually 13$. They also have senior discount for 50+. Was pleased with the food, lots of choices. Also they have decent rewards for members which is free. Granted the rewards are given when spending money at the casino, but if... More

We got a handicapped room and the ADA room was perfect. The beds are low so you don't need a step ladder to get into bed like you do at other places. The shower chair is already in the bathroom and it was clean! The tub is not deep so it wasn't that hard to get my mom in and... More

First co located with casino, big place, plenty of parking. Staff friendly and efficient. Rooms pretty standard, bed comfortable, pillows kind of small. Should note that hotel currently being renovated, to be completed by May 2015. Hotel rooms very convenient to interior of casino. Looking forward to returning when renovation completed.

We stayed here on a roadtrip because my friend likes to gamble. The room was nice, and it was convenient to stay right there at the casino. The Route 66 decor was funky and fun. The gift shop was somewhat limited in items--I say this because I walked out without buying anything, not even a postcard. The main restaurant was... More

This was a great find. We stayed here for a night and had a blast. The room was big and comfortable. The casino was awesome. It had a great route 66 décor and the slots were pretty loose. We really enjoyed our stay here.

My husband and I just happened to see this place on our way home and decided to stop and check it out. After going in and seeing everything we decided to check the rates and found out with our triple A discount it $70. We decided it was a great deal and spent the night. The casino was clean and...
