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.

My wife and I decided to try this place out after all the good stuff we heard. Mainly for the spa and food. First off the room was gorgeous. Las Vegas quality. We have stayed in a lot of places and this room was in the top 10 easily. Large room, even larger bathroom. We posted pics, so I am... More

Getting the room at the reception desk was very fast and pleasant. Elevators are all working and fast. Hallways are very nice. The room was a nice surprise due to the big picture windows and view. The room is very modern and clean. I think the TVC rooms are nicer than most rooms in Reno or Las Vegas. Bathroom is... More

The hotel is pretty nice; rooms are spacious, very nicely appointed, bathrooms are huge! Signs everywhere saying it is a nonsmoking hotel, but if you forgot your cigarettes, just take a deep breath and you won't miss them. Can't get to the hotel from the parking garage without going through the casino; that is, if you want to use the... More

The Hotel and Casino were stunning. We arrived late on a Wednesday for a quick stay. Check in was quick and easy, everyone was very friendly. The access the elevators you do need an active room key (Which is a nice touch) keeps out unwanted traffic. The room was well appointed and the beds were extremely comfortable. The casino floor...

Parking was free to this attraction and inside provided the usual array of casino games. Gone are the days of free drinks at casinos, but smoking is alive and gasping at this establishment. I am not sure how the stakes compare, but we walked away without winning back the $20 we agreed to spend. It was fun in a way,... More

When you think of Lincoln, California, odds are a high value resort hotel doesn't come to mind. But the Thunder Valley Casino Resort will definitely change your mind. The rooms are very clean and spacious with amenities such as coffee and tea included. The rooms are both modern and chic and makes you forget your not in a big town.... More
