Spent a week there in May of 2015. I do not gamble and only walked through the casino to get excellent pizza by the slice and or free hot chocolate. The rooms were very spacious, modern and clean. The cleaning staff did an really good top notch job of cleaning the rooms daily. The location of the hotel was fantastic... More

Solid accomodations and excellent dining at the resort restuarants. Staff was very nice and the rooms spotless. Golf bag shop staff was friendly and did a great job with our golf clubs and getting back to the concierge each night. Pro shop staff could be a bit more friendly and accomodating as they seemed to be distracted. Golf course conditions... More

We were here on a business trip and because the manager of the hotel was understaffed and inexperienced they cut our entire group off saying they weren't able to keep up with who was drinking in excess. We were spending a large amount of money for the weekend for the fifth year in a row and bringing a large group... More

I stayed here for a conference and was pleasantly surprised as to the accommodations and equally surprised by the excellent customer service. I stayed on the fifth floor in a king room overlooking the city; the view was sparkling with lights and serene when snow was falling. The halls were rather noisy during the day due to the number of... More

We had visited the casino a few times, but never stayed there before this trip. We arrived before check in time, but the receptionist welcomed us and was able to get us checked in. We requested a high floor with a mountain view and received both. We also received a corner room that was a little larger than the other... More

We stayed for 2 nights whilst visiting relatives in Rio Rancho. We were made to feel at home by all staff throughout the visit. Concierge arranged car hire and even dropped us off to collect the car! Elmer in the restaurant was one of the best waiters we've ever experienced. All in all enjoyed all aspects of the resort. We'd... More

The rooms are nice but certainly not worth what you lose in the casino. The slots are so tight since the construction started and now that it is finished they are just as tight as ever. Better bet for the money is to go somewhere else regardless of what they advertise.

Once a year I go visit and play at the casino. My last visit was business related and was able to eat at the top in the Ben Sur restaurant. Bring your wallet and food pallet. I believe this casino has the best decor in the area.
