I booked 4 rooms for a weekend stay for/with my parents and sisters. We were not disappointed from the moment we checked in -- to the moment we left. We've stayed at Buffalo Thunder near Santa Fe and have been very disappointed in those accommodations, so for this excursion, we decided to try the Santa Claran. The staff was simply professional, personable and accommodating. The rooms were exceptionally clean and nice. Granted it wasn't peak season, but we didn't have a noise issue or rowdy guests to deal with. The casino restaurant provided good experiences for both breakfast and dinner. They had no problem seating 8 of us. The food and prices were average but better than most casino restaurants. The casino was nice to play in, though smokey at times.
Traveling with my elderly parents and a variety of palates (2 vegans in the group) can be a challenge in locating an ideal set of accommodations. We had such an enjoyable time that we hope to go again in spring. Book your room over the phone vs through the options given on TripAdvisor (sorry TA). According to the online options, there were no available rooms for the weekend we were trying to book. We got great rates as well.
I highly recommend this destination and hotel/casino.
