My husband and I stayed here for three nights at the end of a vacation road trip across Texas and New Mexico. We liked just about everything about this hotel--the friendly staff, our clean and attractive suite in one of the casitas at the back of the property, the appealing breakfast buffet and the pleasant public space where the breakfast was served. Because we were more interested in spending time exploring the area north of Santa Fe than in spending time in Santa Fe itself, the location was ideal for us as well.
Although the area around the hotel is not densely developed (there is not much in the immediate area other than the large Buffalo Thunder casino at the same exit, which we did not visit or really much notice during our stay other than when we were driving in and out), we found good food at two restaurants within a short drive, Gabriel's about a mile south and the Sopaipilla Factory just a bit further to the north. Both were very reasonably priced; the food and environment were a bit finer at Gabriel's, but if we had just one meal to eat we'd choose the warm and welcoming service at the Sopaipilla Factory.
The hotel is about a 45 minutes drive from the visitor center at Bandelier National Monument--well worth visiting--but only about 15 minutes from the less-visited Tsankawi section of the park, where there is a lovely 1.5 mile loop trail that visits some unrestored ancestral Pueblo ruins, following some of the same pathways through the rock that had been used by the ancestral Pueblo people.
One room tip: The one-bedroom suites on the second floor of the casita at the back of the property, #232 and #234, are extremely quiet and have an especially pleasant view over a golf course and the hills beyond.
