“Great beds, great art and nice spa”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel rooms were comfortable with comfy beds. The lobby is very nice with wonderful Native American art. If I stayed again, it would be for the SPA itself. We do not gamble and don't care for smoking which kind of seeps through the hotel, that is one of the negatives.

Room Tip: Try rooms away from Gambling area

This slight of hand place offers a buffet dinner for $7.77, until you stand in line for a half an hour and then at the register they ask for $20+. Hello Rip-off!!
The room was actually very nice can't say much for their marketing tactics...sad.

My husband and I have stayed at Buffalo Thunder before and had nothing but amazing things to say about it, however, we never went for any big event. Their inept employees were unable to communicate effectively, and we were told an event was not going on sale until 6pm when in fact, they were already sold out. I don't recommend this hotel for big events, but if you decide to go anyway, don't talk with Amber!! She will only forward you to a fax machine if you question the integrity of the establishment.

If you plan on gambling at Buffalo Thunder or just passing through on a road trip, stay at the Hilton. The reception was very cordial and friendly. I used Hilton's iPhone app to check in ahead of my arrival, so everything was ready when I arrived. My king bed room was very inviting and comfortable. The view from the balcony included an old church and the gorgeous mountainside. The hotel is connected to the casino directly or you can stroll the restaurants and shops on your way to the casino. I greatly enjoyed my stay and would stay again when I'm in the area.

Room Tip: Direct connection to Buffalo Thunder Casino

My hubby and I have stayed here twice now. We stay for one night when we're driving from Denver to Santa Fe. It's a very nice, clean hotel. The restaurant is awesome, food delicious but it's a tad on the pricey side. Didn't gamble much, walked around the hotel and grounds. They have some cool walking trails. Enjoy staying and will come again. The front desk people were wonderful and always get us a great room.

We spent two nights in a very quiet, clean room with comfortable beds with decent pillows. The bath was clean and well stocked. The dinner buffet had fewer selections than some but the food was much better than most. The breakfast buffet was super. It had a nice selection with steady refreshing. The casino is not too smokey plus there are two smoke free slot rooms. My only negative is the dealers on the crap table weren't real outgoing or friendly. Other tables seemed more inviting or welcoming.

We stayed here for a wedding, and the reception. Everything was perfect! The rooms were clean and well maintained. The staff was there to help with any situations, and to answer any questions. Everyone was friendly and attentive! We will definitely be coming back! Had a chance to play a round of golf, too. It is one of the most beautiful course I have been on! The scenery was gorgeous!
