The customer service has most definitely improved from my last stay one year ago. I was pleasantly surprised by the concierge desk stepping in to help with check in when a line began to form. The room was beautiful as always with a very comfortable bed and gorgeous bathroom. My favorite part of staying at this hotel is the oversized... More

My husband and I stayed here when his company had their holiday dinner in one of their banquet halls. The room was huge! The bed was so comfortable! The bathroom was gigantic and fancy! And one little extra bonus that we thought was neat was the Keurig machine. They had it on the counter above the mini fridge, with cups... More

Very Very nice stay . Staff was very nice and efficient, Room was very clean and updated, View was acceptable would have preferred a westerly view. Hope to visit pool next time weather permitting. The bathroom had the all toiletries needed to clean up and a big tub to relax in.

I USED to come here a lot and enjoy the afternoon. You could bring $100 and have several hours of fun with good food. Now the gambling returns have dried up. Your $100 will last maybe 20 minutes. Very tight machines. They play bait-and-switch with the machines - - when they are new they pay out well, but then they... More

Stayed only one night but the room and hotel/casino were nice. Room was large for a standard room with a bathroom that had a shower and soaking tub. Bed was very comfortable. Played in the casino which was just like the ones you will find in vegas. If I am iba know in the area I would stay again.

I have stayed at Thunder Valley numerous times over the last two years or so. I joined their players club, Thunder Rewards, and have been able to get a comped room since my first visit. Unlike most Vegas casino hotels, you do not need to walk through the casino to get to your room if you arrive via valet. If... More

First impressions are typically a lasting impression, but it was the darn lack of hot water that really irked me about Thunder Valley. We're not talking about a few minutes of lukewarm water here and there. My wife and I simply couldn't get a hot shower on the morning we departed. We tried to hop in about 9AM -- then... More

I like to gamble but my most recent visit to Thunder Valley Casino was not enjoyable. The problem is not limited to them, it's Indian casinos in general. Why am I discriminated against for not smoking? The main section of every casino allows smoking. The majority of gamblers seem to be non smokers. The best machines are always in the... More

Visited the Thunder Valley Casino and Resort on a business trip and really enjoyed my stay there. They have several nice restaurants located on the property. The rooms were very nice and roomy. This would have been a five star review if it weren't for the smoking as it the rule in all Indian casinos.
