My wife and I stayed at the hotel for four nights in July 2016. We used the location as a base to explore other areas of New Mexico mostly to the north. We were upgraded to a very large two room suite for a very reasonable price. The hotel grounds are beautiful and very well kept. The pool and all... More

This is a great hotel, resort and casino in the middle of nowhere, but if you have to stay in Santa Fe, then the 19 mile drive from the airport is well worth it. Clean, fun, great golf course and casino.

This complex (it's more than a hotel) is a great place to stay and a wonderful spot to tour the Santa Fe and Taos areas. There are so many activities; national parks; and sites which are within an hour's drive. I recommend a balcony to sit out on in the morning with a cup of coffee and in the evening... More

This review is solely about the nice experiences my wife and I had on relatively brief visits to the gorgeous public spaces on the ground floor of this large resort. On Tuesday, 14 Jun 2016, on our way to lunch at nearby Gabriel's, we stopped here for a break in late morning after driving down from Taos. We were so... More

Shower plus separate bathtub with plenty of room. Granite countertops. Bed very comfortable. It was a hike to get to lobby and casino however. We only had breakfast... More
