We stayed as part of a party of 10, with 5 hotel rooms for 2 nights. The physical facility was very nice. Staff was a disappointment across the board, however. Desk and service staffs were generally aloof, but capable. Many were downright surly. During our stay, the only genuinely pleasant staff were one waiter and one parking valet. We returned... More

Great supply of crab, but the lines are crazy long. Good selection of American, Asian, Italian and Mexican foods but we basically go for the crab!

Fairly new casino near the highway making it easily accessible. The buffet is good and we have enjoyed a few shows here.

The Hotel was very nice, I was disapointed that the Hotel rooms, smelled like smoke, They have signs posted a non smoking hotel, but the smoke from the Casino is in the rooms. The Spa and work out room were very nice, I also liked you did not have to pay to go... More

Attended an Awards Ceremony this week for business. It turned out very nice. We had a sit down dinner, food was good, servers were nice. Not use to people being able to smoke inside places, so went home smelling like smoke. Not a gambler so didn't care if the slots paid or not. I think the casino would get more... More

I rate this casino a flat Zero. When initially started going to Thunder Valley there was a small casino. I did win on the slots on my early visits. As time went on I stopped winning and the casino. Grew larger into a result. This is due to all the lovers like me who invested with liyou'veeturn. My choice of... More

What thunder valley casino has probably done is altered the virtual reels so there are less jack pots less hits overall, but enough mid level pay outs like 50-80-100 to equal a 72% payout percentage on just about all of their machines. This place is greedy to the max their goal is to have nothing but penny slots they wont... More
