The Santa Claran Hotel Casino was absolutely beautiful. The view from my 6th floor room was amazing! The room itself was immaculate. Clean, incredibly large, complete with beautiful fixtures and great beds. I love that the shower had body wash, shampoo and conditioner in pump bottles on the wall. The towels were plush, the water was hot and water pressure... More

The hotel is beautiful. The only complaint I have is that there were cobwebs in all the corners and on the walls of the room we stayed in and also on the walls and ceilings in the lobby. The room we stayed in was not very clean. The toilet rim looked dirty. but the hotel looks fairly newer and the... More

Upon first entrance, this place is awesome. Southwest meets Craftsman meets Frank Lloyd Wright. Something about the acoustics keeps the sounds muted and no evidence of cigarette smoke. The rooms are very nice, with prints of famous Native artists. Very classy, very clean. Lovely bathroom! Worth the price. Casino is in middle of businesses and Northern NM scenery, with lots...

The rooms are over priced. My air conditioning was out and my room extremely hot. They did not move me. They did offer to compensate me for the problem but at check out the young ladies in charge pretty much called me a liar and were more concerned with someone working in the hotel getting in trouble then trying to...

Then they over bill me a few bucks on my invoice but corrected on the spot Rooms were nice, clean, and spacious. Bed was not what I expected....not very comfortable.

I did not stay at the hotel as it is booked up for 3 months at over $200/night so I checked out the attached casino. It is mediocre to say the best. Not very large, stinks of smoke and unappealing decor. I wanted food so I sat at what looks like a nice bar with draught Guinness, but the smoke... More

I was concerned about booking with a hotel/casino--envisioning cigarette smoke billowing out of the front door and having to traverse the mind numbing sound of one-arm bandits to get to the front desk. My experience couldn't have been more opposite this. The hotel is an Ahhhhhhhh experience from the front entryway all the way up to the pristinely clean, beautifully... More
