The Hilton Buffalo Thunder is a very nice hotel and resort on the outskirts of Santa Fe. It is attached to a casino and has a Vegas vibe, kind of like the South Point Casino in Vegas or another off-strip property. If smoking, drinking and gambling are your thing, you will probably love this place. If not, I would recommend...

I had a terrible experience at this location. They had a false alarm go off after midnight. I dont blame them for the alarm going off, I do blame them for not apologizing or offering up something when it was determined it was a false alarm. Took me another 2 hours to fall asleep and I had to get up...

Hands down, the nicest Hilton property I've patronized in the western-US. Likewise, the staff is exceptional. Rooms are oversized & comfortably furnished. Also, the balcony views are picturesque. Pool is nice in the warmer months --but a bit of a walk from the rooms ("1st World Problem?). The décor reflects the character of the Southwest and there are many pieces...

I must start by saying that I travel a lot for my job. I am a diamond member with Hilton. I LOVE Hilton properties in general, and will continue to support Hilton in my future travels. I have NEVER written a review of any sort online. Not for hotels, restaurants, or otherwise. Unfortunately, I feel compelled to write about my...

The hotel was such a great location and overall great experience. We had a few issues at first but the staff did everything to make up the mistake. The indoor pool was something the kids really enjoyed. Visiting during the winter is something we will have to do again in the future. And it will be done at THIS hotel.

The Buffalo Thunder Hotel and Casino was the perfect place to stay during our visit to Santa Fe. The countryside was beautiful with the mountains covered in snow. Wonderful meals in the restaurants and fun in the casino with top notch service. We had very easy access to Santa Fe downtown for the shops and museums.

We stayed here 26-31st and had a great time. We had a suite with huge bathroom and large balcony along with bedroom separate from living area. The kiddos (19/20) stayed a few doors down so they'd come and play games at night with us. We were the last room by the staircase and it was nice and quiet. The further...
