After booking over the phone, the room rate we were quoted was a great value since one of our co-workers had a players card. What they didn't tell me was how much the resort fee was.... $15. I didn't come to use the spa amenities so $15 seemed a bit high. As for the rooms, they were very nice and... More

The rooms at Thunder Valley are very large, all have great views of the surrounding area. The bathroom is the largest I've ever seen in a "standard" hotel room: Large soaker tub, separate shower, two sinks and a make-up counter. My wife loved it. The prices were normal for a casino hotel. Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and casino. Everything... More

My husband stayed here Thursday, October 2 for one night. We checked in around 9pm. We were assigned a room on the 11th floor. Check in was fast and easy. You need a key to operate the elevators. The room was non-smoking with a king size bed. The room is really luxurious and large. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom... More

So if your looking for a casino trip TVC would be an okay choice. The rooms are big, the bathrooms are big, good amenities and friendly staff. The casino is a decent size and their are enough food choices. Didn't eat at any so I can comment about quality. As mentioned by other reviewers air circulation is a problem. The... More

if you don't then stay well clear - as others have said, the air filtration here is abysmal - too bad for the rooms are large and well appointed, but even on the higher floors the smell of smoke is everywhere. I came for a concert (outdoors) which is a really nice facility with great sound. We also dined in... More

Went to check into my room on Aug 31. Had a room reserved thru my host with a king bed. Natalie my front desk agent said they had no king bed rooms and was going to give me two queens. I was not happy, asked for an upgrade which she rudely said no. I asked why I couldn't get my... More

I stayed here one night a few weeks ago and the accommodations were very clean, the place was pretty much sound proof (quiet), and they had a few extra special toiletries that were nice to have available. The only reason I didn't rate this a Excellent is that there was no water bottles available for drinking left in the room... More

The hotel and rooms are gorgeous! Check in was quick. Food is really good and everyone is helpful and nice. I was there for a meeting - they keep the meeting rooms at ice box temps even after requesting to turn off the a/c. Large casino area, but be prepared for the smoking.
