We love this hotel, its clean friendly and beautiful.But the buffet is horrible. We earned the points in the casino to get it for less, and Im glad because I would have been very upset if we had paid full price. The breakfast was ok, but over priced for what you got. The deli was the best food we had...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 12 January 2017 via mobile

Stayed a few nights in this scenic environment. Artwork in lobby and throughout were fantastic. Staff were great. Had a very nice dinner at the The Red Sage. Breakfasts at the Iguana were outstanding. Nice walking trail near the golf course. Room was quiet & clean. Comfortable balcony to enjoy the 55 degree sun! Really nice Hilton

On our way to Taos we made our first stop at Buffalo Thunder. It will be an easy place to return to. The Bell help at the front door was smiling and eager to help us unload, then waited patiently while we checked in. Our room was well appointed. There were a few small problems that a hotel with over...

Would we return? Yes! Beautiful resort and breath taking experience. Will recommend to all our family and friends. Many staff lacking in people skills. Training in public relations is needed. Buffet was a major disappointment. Food was plentiful but noted that many items were or appeared to taste as lacking in texture and taste. Indoor swimming pool health hazard due...

This property was lovely. It is just outside of Santa Fe but well worth the drive North. The hotel is new with amazing Native American decor. The room was neat, clean, and the bed and bedding very comfortable. I highly recommend having some salsa and guacamole made fresh right in front of you at the restaurant and then taken outside...

Upon arrival I was pleased to receive an upgraded room due to my Diamond Status. I was also given a code for free access to the Internet. However, the typical Diamond benefits stopped there. There is no lounge at this property. Therefore, I was offered a $10 credit at Starbucks on property or a free continental breakfast. Written literature given...

Hilton Buffalo Thunder is my favorite place stay. That is a huge statement from someone who has traveled extensively my whole life. The staff is magnificinet. Jonathan usually greets us by name and with a big hug. He makes sure our luggage gets to our room. Most of the time, the check-in staff also greets me by name. They welcome...

Price between a weekend and weekday is almost double. Also the pool is not open and it's beautiful in April. !!! They need to work that out! Good aspects are the great service and the rooms are nice. Good free coffee in the room.

This used to be the BEST casino in New Mexico, but now it is just a typical smoky stinky casino and hotel. They used to have such a fabulous filtration system, there wasn't even a trace of smoke smell throughout the hotel and lobby area. Now you can smell the smoke as soon as you thru the front doors. I...

Like living in an art museum. Spectacular architecture and Native American art everywhere you turn. The downside is that it's not actually in Santa Fe, but it's only about twenty minutes to town and less expensive than anything close to The Plaza. And if you're into gambling, there's a casino onsite and several others in the vicinity.
