Hotel is very pretty. remodeled rooms are very nice. New beds are incredible!!! Only problem is the smoke from the casino. Expensive, so look for deals. Pool and Hot tub are only open a couple of months during the year! Very hot in Lincoln need the pool to be open more.

Using "Thunder reward card" on visits for play, has many benefits, like being invited to tournament, with dinner included and an overnight stay at their hotel. The King bed and spacious sized room was newly remodeled. Impressive decor and wide wall T.V. with great H.D. reception. I could have soaked in their over sized tub for hours or ordered a...

Huge TV, rain shower, spa tub, robes, thick towels and every amenity you could want. If it wasn't in the room you could call housekeeping and they bring it right away. We forgot some stuff...

We had a nice visit to Thundervalley Casino. The renovated room was beautiful. The casino had a variety of new slots. I will definitely visit again. The front desk staff were very welcoming making check-in a breeze.

From the moment you drive your vehicle to the resort, register, enter the elevator, enter your room you are and feel pampered. What a lovely experience! Our experience at Thunder Valley Resort have consistently been outstanding. The food has been delectable. We were celebrating a 79th birthday. Way to go in such a classy resort.

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
