Arrived late on Sunday, Aug 10 with friends, and found that our reservation had not been made (I suspect that it was our fault, thought we had done it!). Two lovely ladies at the Concierge desk were able to go above and beyond to get a room for an elderly, exhausted couple who had just driven in from LA. We... More

This visit was to celebrate my birthday with an overnight stay, dinner & some gambling fun. As one of the writers stated, the slots were tight, but with some perseverance I was able to find one machine that let me win (sometimes, lol). And dinner at the Red Lantern was delicious. We've stayed several times and it always help to... More

Beautiful rooms. Great staff. Casino needs to loosen the slots have lost $$$ gambling the last 3 out of 3 times we've stayed. We hope to win next time! The buffet is good, they don't change much of what is served so you can expect the same items morning,noon,and night. FATBURGER is excellent, made to order burgers and delicious shakes.... More

My first time here and what a great experience. Sarah was my contact to set up my conference and I don't think I could have been treated nicer. Very nice large room. Modern and comfortable. The food was excellent. We preordered because I set up a conference but wow, first class. Dinner at High Stakes for 25 people and they... More

I recently stayed here for my best friend's bachelorette party (she picked b/c she loves to gamble). When I arrived I parked in the garage & was very pleasantly surprised I did not have to pay for overnight parking (I mean most places charge nowadays).

Having visited the Casino literally hundreds of times I finally wrote them about there bad air. They have only responded by increasing my freeplay. I will not be back there until they solve the problem. The non smoking room is a joke. The other casino's are no where near as bad. If you have any health issues or hate smelling... More

I've been to Thunder Valley Casino several times. I had never considered staying at the hotel. I did this past weekend, and I will again. It is very nice hotel with spacious rooms. It is fairly new with modern features. The hotel fee is small for what they offer: maid service, exercise room, spa, and swimming pool. Comparing it to... More

We have been to the casino before and enjoyed ourselves but had never stayed at the hotel before. We decided to stay onsite this visit as a early birthday gift to my wife (who was also visiting the spa). The room was ready when we arrived. It was spacious and modern with a king bed and a couch.

Always a memorable experience. Staff is fantastic. Rooms are very clean, beds are super comfortable. We usually eat at High Steaks Steakhouse, great service. We enjoy happy hour at the bar. I always order the mojito.

We live close by, but had out of town guests this summer with children. We decided to take advantage of the room special for two queen beds in order to take advantage of the use of the Coconut Pool for the kids and enjoy the large buffet afterwards.
