This property has beautiful rooms, friendly staff, and I enjoyed the casino. There was construction but I did not really notice it. Great amenities and the price was great. Worth the extra drive from Sacramento area which is where I was for business.

Best place to dine and have a great night. Saturday nights enjoy the live music and gambling atmosphere. It is a wonderful place to go and great customer service. Dining there is excellent from the buffet to the High Steaks dining you will not be disappointed. A treat for everyone who likes to enjoy a great weekend.

TV offers a wide variety of slots, a good food court and several nice restaurants. The rooms are very comfortable and have recently been renovated. The beds are great - all with cozy duvets. Each room has a Keurig coffee maker with very good coffee.

Anytime I need anything from comps for dinner, show tickets, rooms, Casino Host Alfred Lee always goes out of his way to make it happen. He is professional and always keeps me posted about upcoming events. Anyone that can get a casino host should ask for Him.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Thunder Valley Casino Resort is a AAA Four Diamond award-winning casino and resort located in Lincoln, California, 30 miles east of Sacramento. It is owned by the United Auburn Indian Community and opened in June 2003. Thunder Valley Casino Resort features a 250,000-square-foot Las Vegas-style casino, offering over 2,500 slot and video machines, 100 table games (including Blackjack, Baccarat, California Craps, Mystery Card Roulette, and Pai Gow) and a live Poker Room which accommodates more than 250 players. The casino regularly holds major promotions and special events including drawings, cash prizes, and tournaments. The expansion completed in June 2010 includes a 17-story luxury hotel with 297 rooms, 40 suites, a full amenity Spa, gift shop and boutique. The resort boasts 14 restaurants and bars, as well as Pano Hall, a large banquet and entertainment center with a capacity of up to 900 guests. The outdoor pool offers a tropical setting with cushioned chaise lounges, private cabanas and Coconut Bar. 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
