My family and I visited Santa Fe and decided to stay at the Hilton Buffalo Thunder. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The beds were queens (not doubles like in many hotels). The southwestern decor didn't just end at the lobby. The rooms were also very neatly decorated. Great hotel!

I was asked if I wanted to upgrade for an extra $20, and wow, so glad I did! The rooms were exceptional! Big living area, with tv, frig, coffee pot, etc. Robes in the closet. The bathroom was HUGE, and the whole length of the suite. I was in awe! Separate place for the toilet, separate 'make up table', shower/tub...

Stayed here on a pass through. Can't wait to go back and really see what there is to offer. I got in too late and left too early for the spa. The pools looked amazing. Great restaurants on property. The room and view were nice. Comfortable bed. And there is a casino. Somewhat far from Santa Fe, but a good...

The rooms are exceptional. The location is very close to Santa Fe so it was easy to go back and forth. The price was also very good for this quality of hotel in this location. If you like to golf or take advantage of the spa, this is also a wonderful place to stay

We had a wonderful time here for a mini family reunion. We spent a significant amount of time in the bar near the hotel reception area. The staff was great and the drinks were good. If you are going here for a casino, don't get too excited. Maybe I'm just used to Vegas, but it wasn't that great. The pool,...

I love the rooms at Buffalo Thunder. They are done up in the Southwest tradition, which is a favorite of mine. However, I came to gamble. I like to play Texas Hold'em. Having visited several poker rooms, the poker room here left much to be desired. I found very long waits to get a seat at a table. There were...

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at Buffalo Thunder. The check in with Zack was a very good experience. As an HHonors member, we were upgraded to a room with a gas fireplace. The room was really really nice for a non-suite room. The balcony was fun! The sliding glass door is the "window" of the room. The...

We recently celebrated a birthday for my wife at Buffalo Thunder and we loved it! Not too far from Santa Fe, about 20 minutes north. Our room was warm and cozy. We stopped in and tried the buffet, well worth it, not your average casino buffet. Enjoyed the gaming they offered. Danced the night away at Shadeh night club. Enjoyed...
