All was good except for a balcony room with no view

needed a less formal dinner restaurant without going into the smoking allowed casino

A lot of the finishes throughout the hotel are beginning to look quite dated.

My room was clean, comfortable and well furnished. The hotel was very quite. Wish there was a power outlet or USB plug at the bedside.

A perfect resort just outside of Santa Fe. Clean, comfortable with a great variety of alternatives from golf to swimming, spa treatments, good Resturant and casino. Reasonable price.

Good food fun atmosphere comfortable beds Casino very large and very nice

Bracelets required to go to the pool. Horrible smell on our floor. Dirty and smells of mold.

Nice hotel. Breakfast buffet was meh. The pool is nice, but the bar out there is over the top expensive. Beds were comfortable and everything was clean. Loved that they allow dogs.

I loved the location of this property. It was centrally located between Santa Fe, Taos, Jemez Trail, Bandalier. We were able to sight see easily from this location. If you want to experience more than the town of Santa Fe, this is a nice location. The supervision of the pool area is lacking. There are no pool rules or enforcement of anything-except to harass you about having wrist bands, which they don't even enforce. The pool and facilities are beautiful. However; common sense rules would prevent kids from jumping in and out of the hot tub and taking over the entire pool area. Parents did not supervise their kids- sent their kids to the pool by themselves and at times it was chaos. More umbrellas need to be available in the pool area for shade. Other than that, it was a wonderful stay.

I booked a room for a weekend getaway with my sisters, who had never stayed at this location and I had bragged about, and to my surprise I was very disappointed. To start, the lobby/ reception area was unusually hot and dirty, there was only two receptionist attending so check in was a drag. The room we initially got was dirty, furniture was visibly falling apart, and MINIMAL complimentary toiletries were set up. We were accommodated to another room which was slightly better. I don't know what was going on but the Hotel was visibly dirty this time around, from the lobby area to the rooms. For the price I would expect a cleaner facility at least!!

Had scheduling issues double booked And my card was double charged

Thank you for taking a moment to share your experience. We apologize for the smell of cigarette smoke that you experienced on property. We do maintain a 100% smoke free policy in our guest rooms and hotel facilities, however, the casino does allow smoking and this may affect some areas of the hotel. We are working with the casino maintenance crew to address this problem.
