                        10.0

                        The price of the room was excellent. I feel I got an exceptional room for the price! I was impressed with the family atmosphere as well. Pool, arcade, kid's club, etc.

                        Not much-but this was the first time I used a Hilton Resort casino was ok outside view was very nice

                        Front desk service hours of operation not posted at buffet cashier area beds uncomfortable no free internet access not enough elevators from front desk to rooms

                      • Family with children
                        7.8

                        The room was great and they take dogs. Great pool

                        Sunday at the pool seemed like locals day. The pool and hottub was over run with freeloaders

                      • Family with children
                        5.4

                        Exterior and interior design was perfect, it matches the local architecture.

                        Extremely rude ( 0 smile) personnel ( except the consierge), they look like they only respect the guests that look highly reach and pay full check with no doubts or questions at all. Mini bar sensors are unacceptable making guests feel like they are thefts by definition.

                      • Group of friends
                        5.8

                        The beds were comfortable, we had a nice balcony, and the rooms were really nice and very clean.

                        No mini fridge in the room. Rooms were really far from elevator/stair ways.

                      • Older travelers
                        8.4

                        I had such high hopes for this place but after a non-working drain in my sink, burned out light bulbs and what ulimately appeared to be a bed bug I was less then thrilled. I would not ding a place for a broken sink drain or burned out light bulbs, except after two days of calling the front desk and saying we are on it and someone is coming to your room right now and a no show...thats lying. I would have rather they say we will fix it upon check out - at least that is honesty. When I brought the blood filled bug down at check out to show the clerk he said nothing more than Oh?

                        Close to attractions like Bandolier National Park and Santa Fe. Very nice room with beautiful building.

                        Outdoor pool was closed and indoor pool was woefully small for number of guests. All you could do is stand and bounce in one spot. Was uncomfortable with warnings to not use refrigerator or touch any goods in room or be charged $6 for a bottle of water! Outlandish prices at restaurants aas well and food was only average.

                        This is a 4 to 5 star hotel with 1 to 2 star prices. It was very beautiful, both inside and out. I would highly recommend this hotel to others and I will definitely return. The bed was very comfortable and the rooms are very large.

                        The only thing that I did not like was the prices on food. This seemed to be a little on the high side. The breakfast buffet was around $32 for two people. The lunch and dinner buffet were reasonable if you used a free players card.

                        Booked a room with a king bed for $99.00 but was given a queen and charged $109.00 plus 8.00 for valet parking is excessive.

                        I knew it was a beautiful, clean, high quality hotel and the rates were great. Taking a mini vacation and being closer to our destination, added to the desirability of this lovely hotel. The service was a major plus.

                        Very nice great value hotel - cannot fault the cleanliness or quality

                        We booked a king room months in advance through Booked.net and on arrival were told only a double queen room available

                        Excellent Spa services and surrounding views

                        Service staff was inexperienced

                        The spacious rooms and comfy bed! The bed was extremely comfortable. My husband enjoyed a round of golf and we both loved the pool. Our stay was really nice.

                        I wish when we checked in the front desk would have told us to sign up for the Players Card...which was free! We missed out on some savings we really needed. Otherwise the stay was wonderful.

                        The location was close enough to Santa Fe to enjoy the city, but the price was not Santa Fe prices.
