What a great stay, my first time staying after hitting the casino last year on a road trip. I was invited to enjoy a free night, free play and free food, who could resist. I live about 200 dollars’ worth of gas away unfortunately or I would go back often. Beautiful resort. I’ll start with the room. Big, open, comfortable.... More

I just got back from staying at the Thunder Valley Hotel and Casino and we loved it. First of all the hotel is great! Completely updated with everything you could want. We stayed in a king suite and was impressed with the room size. We had a great flat screen, comfortable bed, couch and deluxe marble bathroom. We also loved... More

I was recently sent a comp night to check out Thunder Valley Casino in Lincoln, CA from M Life. I have to say, I've never heard great of things about Indian casinos so went in expecting to be disappointed/not thrilled. From the moment we pulled up to the moment we left, it was nothing less than stellar interactions w/everyone at... More

The hotel has great rooms and they are spacious. Rates are very reasonable. Room was stocked with coffee and a Kierig coffee maker. Huge soaker tub, shower and comfortable beds. Lots of amenities in bathroom. Rooms are very quiet. Restaurants in the casino were good.

We stayed in the Deluxe room and it's very big compared with rooms in other casino cities. The service was great from the time we arrived to the departure. At the front, the attendance took care of the car drop-off and opened the door for us. Once we got to checkin, we were registered for the room quickly and ready... More

This place has the capability to be nice, it's quite obvious...but during non-peak times they really take minimalist to a whole new level. First, no pool or hot tub on an 83 degree day in mid-April. This is a resort fee charge as well as a selling point amenity for their spa, so this seems ridiculous. Okay, so I have... More

The hotel is surprisingly good. I didn't know what to expect being a casino and all but..... Convenience - drive up to the hotel check in, valet is there to help or they can watch your car while you check in, not very crowded and lobby wasn't intimidating in size, all very fast, elevators right by lobby (again not like...

Last night my husband and I took our son to the Casino in Lincoln for his 21st birthday. Between the mediocre buffet and the lack of wait staff, after we paid the 10% service change for the tables, and the rudeness of the blackjack dealer, I was shocked at what a low class establishment this was. We are clearly not... More
