Make sure you're hungry when you go. The wide selection of food is more that most places of this size. The food we had was above average for a buffet. The service was excellent, the facilities were clean. Getting to the actual casino is difficult from interstate 40 if you're traveling west but it can be accomplished.

We stayed here overnight and had a great experience. The price for the room was very reasonable-$99- and the Buffett was fabulous. The breakfast the next morning was also great and the staff were friendly and courteous. Didn't win anything in the Casino,but had fun trying. Would stop there again if we were in the area.

This hotel is located right off interstate 40, just west of Albuquerque. The front desk help were awesome. The room was beautiful, had a lovely bathroom, excellent mattress, and was located adjacent to the casino. All for a very reasonable price.

We have stayed here 3 or 4 times. The rooms are ok but nothing to brag about. We thought they were pet friendly. This was our fault for not checking. Anyway, we had our small dog with us so we cleaned out our car so nothing could be stolen. Rolled all the windows down so our dog would have some... More

We stayed at this hotel on May 20th 2016. The room was fairly clean & comfortable. We were kept awake by the noisy air conditioner most of the night. Tried shutting it off, but the room temperature became too hot. The Thunder Road & Cantina had the best tacos I have ever tasted! They were on the warm side, but... More

This is our third or fourth timing staying at the Route 66 casino hotel and have always walked away with a good experience. Our room (king) was very clean and comfortable. Check in was very easy. We were a bit disappointed at first as the pool was closed due to someone breaking something glass in there. (The indoor pool and... More

My daughter and I stayed one night at the hotel. The room was clean, comfortable and attractive. The only complaint was that the elevators were acting up a little, but with some patience, they worked just fine. We got there a bit on the late side, so some of the restaurants were closed.. I wish their steakhouse had a kids... More

Second time staying at the Route 66 Hotel & Casino. The hotel rooms are updated, very comfortable with comfy beds, great quality pillows, and modern decor. Indoor pool offered hours of entertainment for grandkids with towels provided. There is a mini arcade for kids and child care is available. Upon check in you'll get a $5 breakfast coupon which is...

Even though I used to live in Las Vegas NV, this is by far my favorite casino among the 5 dozen or so I've been to in the western USA. It just has all of the features, components, shops, restaurants, non-gambling entertainment (theater, nightclub, fitness center, pool, etc), and especially people that a well designed and managed casino should have....
