I have had nothing but great experience when I stay at any Hilton. I will continue to recommend to all my friends . My next visit will be most definitely be for pleasure with Hilton as my sleeping accommodations.

We stayed at Buffalo Thunder on Saturday, March 28, 2015. The room was very nice, also quiet. The floor and wing we were on had an elevator straight to the casino floor, which was convenient. The casino itself was nice, clean, and had a lot of people, but we still found machines we enjoyed. The buffet was ok. Not the... More

My family and I stood at the Buffalo for 2 nights and must say it was relaxing. We had a 1 bedroom suite which was clean, very nice in its native decoration and comfortable. My kids and I really enjoyed the fireplaces in the room. I am not much of a gambler but I was very nice to go down... More

If you stay here make sure you check the sheets first! Our sheets were dirty. The water that was left in the room had already been opened as well. The lotion was completely empty and the shampoo and conditioner was opened as well. We thought due to the price of the room it would have been thoroughly cleaned and perfect.

The International Buffet Dinner was just awful... Cold, fatty brisket, dried out ribs, baked potatoes looked like shriveled skins done in the Micro.... Chinese food, cold and I would not call it Chinese, something just tossed together... spring rolls just terrible and the so called Mexican food disgusting. I don't think the kitchen stuff has any knowledge what a good... More

I recently was fortunate enough to get "snowed in" at the hotel. The rooms were nice, clean, and quite. The casino was fun, even though I lost money. The employees were all very friendly. The restaurants were all very good. I would definitely stay there again.

My partner and I spent a few days in the "off season" and during the week. The room was great, large, well decorated, and clean. Room service was so-so but the restaurants were pretty good. The staff members were friendly and responsive to our requests.

My wife and I have now been to Buffalo Thunder 5-6 times, and we've had a great experience very time. The staff is great, and there is so much to do. We were really impressed at how nice our room was this trip for the price/points we paid. It was a top floor, corner room with a massive balcony and... More

Recently spent a couple of nights here to celebrate my wife's birthday and we were not disappointed. Upgraded as a Diamond to a very nice suite and really enjoyed the fireplaces. Overall property was in superb condition and as a casino property not loud at all. Drive into Santa Fe was not far at all so if you are looking... More

We stayed here with family lots to do for everyone. Excellent pool area for kids, and the grounds and views are amazing. Make sure and take the time to eat about one exit down at Gabriel's, wonderful food. We had a wonderful time at the casino but was unaware you can't have alcohol on casino floor, so anyone interesting in... More
