Score from 7 reviews Good
The beautiful and comfortable room. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
We were kept awake by the boxing match that was on TV at the bar. We could hear it because the doors to the Bar were open.
Loved the rooms. Spacious and clean. This casino hotel is in the city of Espanola, not on the outskirts, so location was also good. The club sandwich with jalapeño infused bacon and avocado was great. The apple pie with caramel was awesome
Restaurant was a bit noisy with children.
Quite clean rooms, really comfortable bed. Front desk staff was very professional, polite and friendly.
lighting in bathroom is not good for putting makeup on. Restaurant should not be located in the casino which allows for smoking. Hotel is no smoking but no eating facility is.
We really like your hotel and casino....very clean and EVERYONE was very friendly...we will definitely stay there again when in the area.
I could have used a better lamp for reading while sitting in the room's lounge chair...did not feel the light was bright enough by the bed...also, we were in Room 428, which is a King bed....it was not as comfortable and felt too hard for me... last time we stayed with you we had a room with Queen beds that were much more comfortable.
It is always clean.
The two women at the front desK were not too friendly, and they did not acknowledge my request for the stay.
RESTAURANT HOURS NEED TO BE LONGER
We chose this location for its proximity to the Santa Fe Opera House and Ojo Caliente Hot Springs and Santa Fe. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. The hotel was not at all crowded and was next to the casino but totally separate-no slot machines even.Room was great with views of the Jemez Mnts.
There was no restaurant in the hotel. There was a cafe in the casino and a bar that allowed smoking. The little town of Espanola where the hotel is has little to offer except its proximity to so many great places in NM.
The two Ladies that were at the check in were so Wonderful. The whole place is Great. I would recommend this place to everyone. Which I have already. Thank you's for being like Family.
We liked it all. Sorry.
my family n I enjoyed the bowling area
no breakfast bar,pool
The room was spacious The room was nice The bed was comfortable The decor was appropriate
Was not able to find the restaurants open at a later hour
Close to everything! Nice bar.
The staff went above and beyond as our reservation was mistakenly booked for the month of September rather than August. The hotel was sold out and they were kind enough to give us a conference suite which worked fine. Having a good sense of humor is essential.
The mix up of date of reservation which caused confusion for the staff and us.
Wasn't too happy that my husband and I were booked in a handicap room, shower was too small no room to move.
The Santa Claran was the perfect "day-trip" location ... Santa Fe Chimayo, Taos, Los Alamos, Santa Clara, San Idefonso, Puye Cilffs, on and on. The lodging was elegant! Our west-facing balcony was a sunset romanticist's dream!
Smoking in the casino. We enjoyed dining in the restaurant, except for the smoke-filled gauntlet of the casino .
The atmosphere was so peaceful and relaxing.
Our short stay.
Quiet Room, good facilities
Smoking allowed in casino (made my visit to floor extremely short)
everything nice comfortable experience
the beds were a little to hard I needed a heavier blanket.
The night manager was particularly helpful and responsive in relation to my concern (see below). The casino bar has an outdoor seating area with tables with gas fires. We loved that. Hotel was clean, comfortable, and generally quiet.
I understand that this arrangement is temporary--however a large-event party was scheduled on a floor above us--on a Saturday night--and the noise was disruptive.
I liked the décor.
My bedding was not fresh. The mirror in bathroom was too high for my 4'10" elderly mother. No WiFi. No Continental breakfast.
Clean spacious comfortable bed
Very poor lighting in the room. Hard to see well or read because of the dim lighting.
Room Clean and spacious
Bathroom dark, didn't like the coffee
Location was our prime objective for Chimayo, Taos, Ghost Ranch etc. Our room was spacious, clean and smoke free with a great bed
We are non-smokers but our room was odor free as was the rest of the property except for the casino but we understand that. We had breakfast in the casino restaurant and we didn't find that a problem. Thumbs up for everything. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful.
Rooms are nice and I like the walk in showers.
The beds were a little too firm, would like to have a microwave in the room, could not get breakfast before 7 AM, I had to be a work by 7 AM! Would like to have had more cable TV channels.
I stayed there for one night. The room was modern and very clean. The staff was very helpful during check in. The hotel's casino was great as well. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is wanting to stay at a nice location in Española.
I loved the fact that it was quiet....not hearing others in the room next to mine. The bed was very comfortable, the room was very clean. This is the second time I have stayed at the Santa Claran and have not been dissappointed. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. I will stay there again.
A slight inconvenience was fan in the bathroom not working...but this did not cause much of an issue due to the large size of the bathroom.
