Buffalo Thunder is a beautiful resort with nice conference facilities. The room was clean but the sliding glass door did not lock. I called for service, left the room, came back and the lock had not been taken care of. I called again and the engineer showed me that it had to be pushed hard....hmmm. Still had trouble. There was... More

Overall very good experience. First stop on our vacation. Rooms were very nice and comfortable, with a balcony. Close to the elevator, but was still a long walk to the lobby. Wife leisured in the pool area, while I went to the casino. Very impressed with the design work of the building. Buffet had a good variety of food. Turquoise... More

I stayed at this property for a couple of nights. The rooms were nicely decorated and clean. I did not find that the hotel staff was especially polite. The service did not compare to the sister property up on the hill. We were not informed of the on sight entertainment. I also had the same problem as the other reviewers... More

The Hilton Buffalo Thunder resort and casino is a very large facility, conveniently located just outside Santa Fe. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Room service is prompt and a number of restaurants are available on the property. We stayed for two nights, played some golf, are dinner at the resort and visited the spa and pool. The concierge desk... More

This beautiful hotel provides a high end feel. But the smaller amenities will cost you ie., a bottle of water and wifi. The snack tray provided in the room is tempting but a bag of M&M's will cost you $3.00! At least the coffee was free!

We've been here several times and find it relaxing as you don't need to leave the premises. Room wifi is very slow. There's everything here but an accessible lift for either of the two pools. We asked when we checked in to make sure the indoor pool lift would be operable in the morning. It wasn't! Lots of excuses. "The... More

I try to stay here whenever I'm in Santa Fe, N M. It's a great resort. They used to offer great rates but now, they check your players card. Hey I'm in Chicago so I'm not there to play . So they are not offering great rates unless you're a gambler. Which I think isn't a smart idea They really... More

This place is awesome, it is a very calming place, beautiful inside and the rooms are well taken care of. A little pricey, but truly worth it. Sometimes get good deals off season. The location is perfect since its about 20 minutes from Santa Fe, but yet quite peaceful at night. Loved it!!!

The facilities are nice. So why would I think twice about staying here again? How about Third World looking security guards on the rooftop of the five story building, looking down onto the property over the roof edge? I have never seen such a thing at a quality hotel. And then security guards constantly flowing through the pool area...sometimes two... More

Dear Carrie, Thanks for taking the time to share your comments regarding your recent stay at Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder.
