Stayed here on Easter,one night getaway.room on a 15th floor,was next to elevator. Could hear the elevator unless we had tv up high.Buffet was overpriced. The casino was very smoky my throat and eyes hurt all night. I did enjoy that it us a short drive and I feel like I am at a Reno resort.

Thunder Valley is one of my favorite casino/hotels; the casino is large, so lots of gaming and the staff is always pleasant. The hotel rooms are really nice and now they have Keurig coffee in the room. I recommend the Buffet for morning/lunch only. The Sunday Brunch is very good, and breakfast on Monday morning is also very good, however,... More

We've been staying in their hotel ever since it opened every time we're in town. They must have the best housekeeping team in my opinion. The bathrooms are spotless as well as the rest of the room! It doesn't matter which room you stayed in it is top notch! Our kids always wanted to comeback here because they love how... More

Absolutely a great hotel! We have stayed there a few times and upon our first return, they remembered my first name when we approached the front desk, (prior to even telling them who we were). The rooms are Very, Very nice! Service by all staff impeccable! Flower petals on the bed for special occasions. Pastoral views from the rooms. Can't... More

For us it's really tricky to review this hotel - some great positives but also negatives - overall though extremely positive, probably coloured by the fact that none of our family gambles, we don't like casinos and hate smoking - we were in town to be with relatives for Christmas and needed somewhere to stay. I have rated the overall... More

Valets were friendly & helpful. Upon entering the luxurious main lobby, we were assaulted by smoke. Effortless friendly checkin. We coughed all the way down the smoky hall to our Non smoking room. Room super luxurious. Very quiet. Huge bathroom- makeup table, lighted makeup mirror, classy glass shower, and super deep soak tub. We stayed there for a show so... More

I got home unpacked and realized I had left a very expensive charger in my room. I called immediately and security/lost & found said nothing had been turned in but they would give me the front desk of the hotel so they could send someone up there to look for it.

Very comfortable rooms, pleasant staff, and a peaceful nights sleep. Even though there's no place like Vegas, this casino had it's pros: easy valet, quiet hotel, and quick room service. The only con, you have to pay for your own drinks when gambling.
