I stayed at the Thunder Valley Casino Resort for a business meeting held on site. The staff was extremely accommodating and the service outstanding. My room was gorgeous--quite large and filled with unexpected amenities. I am a non-smoker, but I did not find the casino as smoky as some other reviewers. I appreciated the smoke-free casino area. We ate in... More

Since the hotel has opened, I've probably stayed here four times, with a mix of 50/50 between great to less than four stars. I stayed one night and was guaranteed a room at 4pm. I arrived a little early, about 3:30. When I entered the lobby I immediately sensed that something was up - all the couches and chairs in... More

We stayed one night after a concert. The room was large and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was very similar to the ones in the Ritz Carlton San Francisco, large and luxurious with lots of marble. The bed was comfortable and the linens were good quality. We would stay there again.

My partner and I stayed here for an overnighter to relax and enjoy the Hall and Oates concert. When we stepped into the room we thought wow! Really? In the middle of flatland Sacramento area? We were extremely pleased with the luxurious accommodations including all the amenities. The room was clean, modern and very quiet. The plush sheets and bedding... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night after going to the Hall and Oates concert there. It is in wide open spaces but is easily accessible and sign posted if you travel by car, it is also serviced by a shuttle from Sacramento. Free self parking, friendly, helpful staff and great rooms. We got a rate, paying $99... More

We spent only one night but had a wonderful experience. The spa gave us on the spot pedicure appointments, the pool area with very relaxing and the wait staff was very attentive. Loved the room, it was comfortable, well equipped, and we slept great. We will make this an annual event!

I recently went with my husband, our 1 year old and my parents. My husband and I are not much of big gamblers, but my parents are so we decided to tag along with them since they get free hotel rooms since they gamble often. We got there on a Friday night and checked into our rooms and because we... More

My husband and I decided to spend a night here and we were not disappointed. We checked in on a Sunday night and from the Valet to the workers in the casino, we found everyone to be very pleasant to us. The room was bigger than we expected, very clean, and peaceful at night time, considering we didn't go to... More
