“Another great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Being born and raised in New Mexico, it is not as important to me to have the Santa Fe experience any longer. I have stayed at this property 5 or 6 times over the past couple of years. While the Homewood Suites are located north of, but an easy 15 minute drive back into Santa Fe, it is more than worth it to stay at this property. First off, the front desk service is usually excellent, the management is always there to make the stay as enjoyable as they possibly can and are always very friendly. The rooms are spotless and very well cared for by the service staff.
One of the perks of the stay if you should choose to stay in and served nightly (except Fri-Sun) can be the complimentary evening meals you can take in their very spacious area for what is also the breakfast (much more than a continental breakfast) room. The food is cooked with the local flavors and can be very tasty.
There has been a much improved wifi correction they needed to make if you stayed out in one of the casitas. Prior to the upgrade, there were some major connection issues. Not any longer - it was a welcome relief to be able to connect so quickly once we got to our room. They have a good sized workout room and even a place to do your laundry if you are on the road for some time and need to clean a few clothes.
Just across the parking lot is the pretty busy Buffalo Thunder Hilton, They have several restaurants, a cafe, a lunch deli and a beautiful buffet that resembles the top rated buffet located at the Planet Hollywood (formerly the Aladdin) resort in Las Vegas. The food was very good, and offered a tremendous variety diners could choose from. Additionally the Hilton has a casino if you would like to try your hand at a little gambling. But for me, I appreciate the roominess of a suite with the full sized refrigerator, microwave, cooktop stove and dishwasher that the Homewood Suites has. I highly recommend this property.

Room Tip: If you really want peace and quiet, ask for a room in one of the casitas. They are detached from th...

Lovely facility They have a great breakfast buffet, not of the continental variety. They also serve a free dinner Monday through Thursday. Great view from the west side of the building. I felt like a Georgia O'Keeffe painting was right out my window. The resort is about 10 miles north of Santa Fe, which is a quick drive to all the sights. I would highly reccomend this facility.

I normally don't post reviews until after my stay but I have two more nights here and I'm extremely satisfied. After the hassles of the property sharing the parking lot.....I finally spoke with Steve at the Homewood Suites. It took 3 minutes to get what I spent hours trying to get at the other place. As others have said, it's clean, quiet, dinner was a surprise, breakfast ok (the bacon was very good, didn't touch the eggs) and if you get a room facing the gold course, it's very quiet. I opened my windows for fresh air and I slept wonderfully. The bed is very comfortable and the units spacious, especially for one person. Internet is included, (unlike the other property) and it's a short 18 minute drive to downtown Santa Fe. I would definitely stay here again. The staff will do whatever they can to make your stay comfortable. Having a fridge, microwave, mini kitchen, dishwasher etc is a plus.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from the freeway if you're a light sleeper.

We stayed at this property this last weekend. There were 3 couples, my husband and I as well as my brother in law and wife, and sister in law and husband. All of us had a great experience here. It is close enough to go into Santa Fe, but remote and secluded enough to enjoy the beauty of the desert landscape. It was very quiet. The included breakfast was good, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The Buffalo Thunder resort is right next door, and is easily accessible by foot or golf cart, (courtesy of the hotel), It is a Hilton property also, and if you are staying at the Homewood Suites, you can use the any of the amenities at the resort next door. My husband used the workout gym, the indoor pool and the hot tub and said it was great. The casino was fun and there are several restaurants there as well. My only suggestion might be to keep the breakfast items which are served to hotel guests in the morning warmer. We ate about an hour after serving began, and the food, while good, was just lukewarm. Overall, we loved our stay and we will be back!

Room Tip: The Casitas are very nice, but they have no elevator, so if you have mobility issues ask for a first...

We stayed here previously on the advice of a friend and love it! About a half hour away from The Plaza and next door to Buffalo Thunder Casino. Great breakfast and even has dinner Mon-Thurs. The lobby is gorgeous and nice to socialize in. Full kitchen, nice lounge area, huge bathroom and the beds are comfortable. The staff is very welcoming, even had personalized notes waiting for us in our room. We'll definitely be back again!

After staying in downtown Santa Fe, this was a welcome oasis and the senior rates made this stay affordable to us. Nice amenities, EXCELLENT, FRIENDLY staff, great location with easy on/off access to the highway, We enjoyed having the casino next door for evening and other dining options. The included breakfast & dinner were time and money savers. Would definately stay here again.

We stayed here for a full week in September with our adult daughter. Our first Homewood experience and if all are like this one we are hooked! I suppose different people may have different likes or expectations, but this was perfect for us. Beautiful, modern, clean and nicely decorated suites and public spaces. Friendly and helpful staff from front desk to housekeeping. No extra charges for the few extra services and facilities available.

We stayed in one of the casitas behind the main building. Each of the four casitas consists of two floors with four suites on each floor (no elevator). Our building had two one bedroom suites and two studio suites on each floor. The two bedroom suite casitas are closer to the main building. Being behind the main building facing the golf course and desert these suites are very quiet day and night. The suites have basic kitchen facilities, which we barely used.

The morning breakfast is nice, with 3 or 4 warm items each day, whereof one egg dish and one meat dish, different each day throughout the week. Further pastries, cereals, yoghurt, fruit and juices and different coffees and teas. There is a waffle iron and strawberries and cream. The complementary evening "dinner spread" is very simple. Not gourmet dining, but again a meat dish, a vegetable dish, a small salad bar fruits and deserts. It includes choices of one red and one white wine and one beer on tap. Guests are free to consume up to three drinks each.

The hotel does not have a lot of in-house facilities. A fairly small outdoor pool with a few loungers. A patios with a few tables. A small fitness center and a computer room with two computers and printer. All use is complementary. There is a small store for very basic needs near the front desk. We had no problem with our WiFi connection in our casita suite.

While the Homewood itself has no restaurant or hot tub, the huge Hilton resort next door has all you need and more. Seven restaurants from basic coffee-shop to buffet to bar to fancy dining, There are beautiful outdoor and indoor pools, outdoor and indoor hot tubs, casino, store, spa etc. It's a beautiful sprawling new resort with lots of native artwork. We enjoyed two of our 7 days just relaxing at the pools, which by the way were very quiet in September.

For us the location was ideal. 15 minutes out of Santa Fe and centrally located to explore northern New Mexico. 1 Hour to Taos. A few minutes away from the beginning of the High Road to Taos. 15 minutes from Chimayo, 30 minutes from Bandelier and Los Alamos. Basic services such as banking, a supermarket and some restaurants a 5 minute drive to Pojoaque, the nearest Pueblo.

By now you must have figured out that we had a great time! We highly recommend this hotel for a quiet, relaxed stay with all facilities at hand. And all this for less than $ 100/night for the three of us. :)

Room Tip: Casitas are very quiet. However, top floor has no elevator access. Stairs only. Looks like two bedro...
