Santa Claran Hotel and Casino makes an impressive statement. Few hotel and casino combinations present themselves the way this one does. Having truly considered the mystery and history of the ancestral lands of modern-day Santa Clara Pueblo tribe, the new Santa Claran Hotel represents the values of those traditions. Without the typical flash and sound of most casino-aligned hotels, the Pueblo’s cultural traits of warmth, friendship and hospitality are immediate to the visitor. After years of devoted development, it offers the traditional style and elegance of northern New Mexico. As soon as you walk in, you know that you’re about to experience something fine. From the eaves to the light fixtures to the paintings and carvings on the wood-panel walls, you will sense the dignified spirit of the Pueblo all around you.
For centuries, the people of the Pueblo have been known for their hospitality and for treating travelers like family. Likewise, the talented people of the highly trained staff share one common goal -—to make you feel at home. Santa Claran Hotel’s central location in the heart of northern New Mexico also makes it your hub for the region’s most celebrated sights and activities. Enjoy any of the 124 beautiful rooms, many with pretty views, as well as a 24-hour fitness center with the latest cardio equipment, a 24-hour business center, and the 24-lane Big Rock Bowling Center.
With the community of guests that keep returning and the multitude of on-line 4-star reviews, it’s obvious why they’ve received the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence. Minutes from the highly rated, challenging, and geographically stunning Black Mesa Golf Club and a very short distance from the ancestral homes at Puye Cliff Dwellings, the Santa Claran Hotel and Casino is an excellent inclusive destination.
There’s no mistaking you are in a casino at Santa Claran. The floor is vibrant with 27,000 square feet of northern New Mexico’s hottest and luckiest gaming. No doubt, you play for big payouts at the 650 reel and video slot machines, and popular table games including craps, blackjack and roulette. But there are exquisite, considered touches that give it a feeling that sets it apart from most casinos. It’s small and it’s mindfully elegant. The emphasis on responsible gaming is evidenced by less distractions from the special touches brought by the pueblo design features. It’s balanced here.
