I had a very bad experience at the spa last Monday. I paid over $125 for a 90 minute message. My masseur was sick and was coughing all over me during my treatment, there was a loud banging noise coming from behind the wall and I got scalded by the shower water that wouldn't cool. When I brought all this... More

For those who hit the casino once or twice a year, take a nice gambling stake you're comfortable with risking and this will probably please you. ON the plus side, it's a lovely facility, tons of machines, pretty good food, lots of parking, and you can't beat the drive if you live in Place County. BUT - on the flip... More

The shows are terrific and affordable. High Steaks restaurant is terrific. The buffet is as good and affordable as any Las Vegas or Reno buffet. The casino is smoky and the slots seem too tight. Having Thunder Valley nearby is terrific.

For the President's Day holiday, I decided to make a trip to the Thunder Valley Casino Resort with the family. Thunder Valley is located at Lincoln, CA near Roseville, CA. This Casino resort is an Indian casino, and very upscale in many ways; it's very elaborately designed, and offer all of the luxuries one can expect for a nice weekend... More

Lots of machines and newer slots. Table games so, so. Rewards program is lacking! Reaching tiers is difficult. However; it is good for an Indian Casino. Lots, and lots of smoke! You can't smoke in California, but technically a Indian Casino is not California, so they smoke.

I was invited to celebrate my friend's birthday. I am not a fun of casinos but this place was terrible. TOO STINCKY. Food aweful. Too loud. I can't believe this was a new building in Lincoln.

The familiar slots were mostly gone, the new slots had up to 149 paylines. Way too confusing for me. I went into the gift shop hoping to purchase some used casino playing cards. The gift shop employee informed me that no cards are sold there, All used cards are destroyed. Another disappointment.

Cigarette smoke smell throughout. There is a small room for non-smokers but all the other amenities are in the smoking areas. Fast food food court and a buffet ($20-30 person), some entertainment at night for an extra charge. A hotel is attached and lots of parking. Lots of video gambling and some live gambling tables too. One large bar in... More
