Really a nice property and the staff was very nice and helpful. The room was a standard king with a balcony. I didn't have any major issues. I was able to check-in with my phone and even get a digital room key on my iphone. It works but a little slow. We had two minor issues. One was that the...

The problems we had with this hotel: 1. It took over an hour to check in. 2. They double charged my credit card and haven't answered my calls to fix it. 3. We had to keep getting new room keys every time we left the room because the old ones stopped working. 4. They didn't leave a receipt under our...

Dear Cari, Thank you for taking the time to share your recent experience at Hilton Santa Fe Buffalo Thunder. I was disappointed, however not surprised when I read your list of problems that you encountered during your stay. I have no excuse to offer other than the fact that our entire computer system was down for 3 days and while...

Took us over an hour to check in due to their computers being down. I usually don't like giving a bad review, but they didn't offer any of the guests that we're all very frustrated anything for the inconvenience. When a "resort" has these kind of issues, usually they offer some dining vouchers or upgrade your room. We stayed here...

Always a great experience, from location to service and big time gaming experience. Love the size of even the standard room. Beautiful decorum spacious bathrooms with walk in showers. Very comfortable beds too and nice towels and toiletries. Beautiful balcony views. Can choose to be close to casino or closer to pool and spa area. Lobby and common areas also...

On a road trip and decided to stay at the Hilton Buffalo Thunder resort, about 12 to 15 miles north of Santa Fe, New Mexico. It's billed as a large golf and spa resort, with a casino. Very pretty area (New Mexico style). Many rooms. What drew us there was the opportunity to golf, enjoy the spa, and visit the...

Clean, friendly, fairly quick, accommodating. The staff greeted us promptly and were pleasant. We inquired about an online offer for the price of the room and were initially told they couldn't match it. We were going to have to go to a computer and book the room over the internet. The manager finally realized it was an unnecessary step and...

As school employees, we needed to REALLY get away for Spring Break, but only had three days and two nights..The Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino was our choice and it turned out beautifully.... We made day trips in the Santa Fe and Taos area, but we could have spent the whole time at the resort and been very happy...the accommodations...

I stay here two weeks a month on business - wish it was on pleasure so I could indulge in their spa facilities. This resort is incredible - not only breath-taking views, but impeccable service, incredible customer service, and a 5 star restaurant! The rooms are to die for! Love Love the fireplaces and balconies!

Room was not at all as pictured and not worth the price. Also, we requested a handicap room and then had to ask for a chair as this room had only a regular tub with one grab bar. Worse of all, it was a very long walk from the elevator and long even to get out a side exit because...
