This is our 3rd stay at this hotel and it is good, considering how inexpensive it is. It is detached from the casino, so the hotel and rooms do not smell like smoke. We have stayed here and also at much nicer and fancier Buffalo Thunder Resort down the road: two very different properties at two very different price ranges.... More

The hotel is old and dated. it is clean but needs an update. The front desk was nice and helpful. But when we ask for enough towels for the 4 adults we had in our room we were told that we could only get 2. still didn't have enough towels.

Want a drink, some cards or video poker in a laid back atmosphere? Then avoid the casino, because you won't find it here. Alcohol is only served in a cheezy nightclub where the security outnumbers the patrons. There aren't even chairs for the bar and the only friendly bartender was overshadowed by the staff who were agitated by something, as... More

We were visiting in Santa Fe for five days and wanted to find an inexpensive place to stay. The COG Hotel was basic no-frills comfort. The King bed gave an excellent night's sleep--and after a day at the Balloon Fiesta-- we needed the sleep. The facility was pretty worn and not exceptionally well maintained. However, the staff went overboard to... More

We checked in with our bus tour director at this hotel. The food we were served for our dinner in the conference room was better than I expected. The hotel personnel were all very helpful and nice. With that being said, when we got to our room, we needed toilet paper and Kleenex. Our room telephone did not work right.... More

Came here on a recommendation of my parents who have stayed here before. I needed an inexpensive place to stay on our lengthy vacation, near Santa Fe, NM. We arrived early so couldn't check in, but they registered that I had arrived with the family. I told them we were going into Santa Fe to sightsee and that I would... More

A good traveling place to stay that close to Santa Fe but reasonably priced. the Checkin is quick and easy and the hotel has two completely separate wings for smokers and non-smokers. THe hotel is 100 meters off highway 285 to Taos so its a good place to base a visit to the northern pueblos, Chimayo, Los Alamos and the... More

My husband and I made reservations a week before our trip to stay two nights. We reserved a king size bed, non smoking, dog friendly room. We showed up at 10:00 pm. When we went to check in, Heather at the front desk told us someone decided to extend their stay and so they had no pet friendly room. I... More
