I went to a Herman's Hermits Starring Peter Noone concert show. I loved the show room, nice sound quality. I also loved the hotel room. It was nice and cozy and a wonderful view from the window.

No other big buildings are around the casino complex so you can spot it from the freeway easily. This place also has an outdoor concert arena and it looked like they were expecting big crowd for a show that weekend. As for the gaming…I didn’t play because I couldn’t find a non-smoking area (their signage said there is). I was... More

I think I like coming here for a few reasons: 1. the piped in music is pretty awesome, I can't stop dancing around when I am in there! 2. The food court is awesome, as are the "coffee shop type diner, with killer pastries, the Steak House is A- MAZ-ING! what a treat!, and, the most important reason, I always... More

I'm the first to admit that I really enjoy casinos, but if all were like "Thunder Valley," I would never go again. Upon entering, you notice a very dark and smokey atmosphere. Although you heard music before entering, once inside the music is overwhelmed by the loudest din of noise that I've ever heard in a casino. Adding to the... More

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
