The hotel is pretty nice; rooms are spacious, very nicely appointed, bathrooms are huge! Signs everywhere saying it is a nonsmoking hotel, but if you forgot your cigarettes, just take a deep breath and you won't miss them. Can't get to the hotel from the parking garage without going through the casino; that is, if you want to use the elevators. You can hike down the stairs and around to the front of the hotel. We ate at the buffet. Lots of choices, pretty inexpensive but you are easily reminded that you get what you pay for. Wouldn't want to eat there again. Nothing really wrong with the food, but very mediocre. Rooms were clean. Pool is very nice! Guest services staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. All in all we had a good time, but it is much less a resort and definitely a casino.

It is owned by the United Auburn Indian Community and opened in June 2003.

The highly popular Summer Concert Series outdoor amphitheater seats over 5,000 while attracting major headliners. Additionally, Thunder Valley acquired Whitney Oaks Golf Club, a championship 18-hole course just 15 minutes away in Rocklin. Renovation Underway Construction is currently taking place on our expansion and renovation project! In addition to adding 111 new luxury rooms and suites, we are completely renovating all existing 297 rooms. We expect to complete the project by Fall 2017. We're working hard to minimize the noise and intrusion, with most work taking place during non-peak periods and minimal guest interruption. During this time our windows have had an opaque film placed on them to obscure your view so as to protect your privacy as scaffolding has been erected outside your window to complete work on the exterior of the building. For your safety, please use caution when approaching work zones. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for your understanding. We're excited to show off our "new look" with upgraded technology, including charging ports and our new Guest-Tek interactive entertainment system. Soon, our guests will enjoy more of an unprecedented luxury resort experience than ever before! ... more less
