Loved everything about this property!!

The walls must be paper thin, we spent 2 long nights dealing with the children next door screaming, laughing , running. We assume the parents weren’t even in the room but were instead downstairs gambling. It took 3 phone calls to front desk before I asked for a room change, they didn’t even offer! Miserable stay, so much for a weekend getaway from our kids.

One of if not the quietest property i have stayed at and it is a casino! Casino is under the lobby so you dont feel like ypurw in Vegas when you walk in. No noisy neighbors at night. Away from the city so no outside noise. Great place to stay and lots of areas for your pet.

Is very clean and beautiful hotel, the theme of New Mexico is all over.

The property was clean and friendly. Several activities to choose from for both young and old. There weren't many restaurants open due to staffing but they were very friendly about it and i did not mind one bit. They gave great recommendations

Easy check in. Requested sheets to change the bed because they were under staffed. They brought sheets with blood on them. Restaurants and night club closed due to no help

Many restaurants were closed. Limited food options. Hot tub closed, indoor pool closed, thin walls. Waiters and other staff seemed new and lacked property knowledge

clean, professional, good covid controls

Great complex our only disappointment was that casino was not open during our visit. The food and beverages at restaurants good and nicely priced, Staff quite friendly throughout stay.

The property was very clean and spacious. Gorgeous artwork that was displayed throughout the whole place. The only thing was that much of the hotel was closed (spa, pool, restaurants) but we understood that it was due to COVID-19. We definitely plan on coming back and hopefully everything will be open and we will be able to enjoy all the amenities!!

The artwork and the Lobby were very nice. I liked all the Indian art. Since the hotel had been closed for such a while because of covid, you'd think they would freshen up everything. Our room didn't feel fresh and clean and the snacks were stale. Only fast food restaurants were open and so we had to go all the way back to Santa Fe. Our experience was ok.

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.
