Nice location. Easy access to almost everything. Good selection of restaurants. Rooms are clean and well maintained. Good size bathroom though not sound proof as we can hear the people next door. I would still recommend this hotel.

The rooms here are excellent. I live in the area, but I try to stay here at least once a month for a mini-vacay! The rooms are large with excellent views and amenities. There is a single use Keurig coffee machine and mini refrigerator in the rooms. The bathroom is HUGE, with a separate tub and shower!

The resort is currently under a renovation, so the price of the room was nicely discounted. The room was very nice and spacious. The bathroom was really nice with the extra counter space for putting on makeup and the shower was great. The window was covered, so we weren't able to enjoy the view, but it was fine for 1...

Stayed for one night. The room was recently renovated very clean and spacious. Front desk staffs are professional and courteous. I take one star off because one of the sinks in our room has drainage problem.

I hate to give this 2 stars but since the hotel and casino are on the same rating page, there is not much I can do. Our experience at the hotel was great. We were in one of the new rooms and it was spacious, well decorated, comfortable and high end. Our experience at the casino was less than stellar....

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
