Trash Valley sums it up..
I did not think to read reviews but was so shocked at the ghastly experience there I had to see what others thought. Let me say that as we left, we joked that it was appropriately located between a landfill and a concrete supply place, speaks for itself. Back to our arrival: the minute we entered we were assaulted with not just overwhelming smoke, but very stale air. The place is filled with clumps of security staff who look at everyone as though they are axe murderers. No one is smiling. Everyone - customers, staff everyone looks depressed, angry and why not!!! The patrons are mostly low income/low rent. Very sad to see people who have less than nothing, haven't had a good meal or bath in a while, (but too many drinks and smokes) in absolute desperation at the games/slots. We walked the entire casino, stopped at the tables and machines and just observed. After a very short while, we lost any desire toplay anything here. This is not a place people come to have fun. In fact after 90 minutes of observing (stayed that logn just to see if there was anything redeeming) we just walked back to the garage. The best thing is that no one hit or broke into our car!!! The whole vibe is fake, sad, depressing. I've been to casinos all over the world, even in third world countries where they at least have a happening happy vibe even if they rip you blind. Did not gamble, could see what was going down at all their profit centers. It was clear to us having analysed corporate cultures for many years, the atmosphere of the place is directly attributable to the folks running the place. SInce we knew these Indian Casino's are a law unto themselves, and State controls are not enforceable, we felt real sorry for the employees. They are dressed very drab and shab, you can see they try to smile, but there is nothing to smile about.
It used to a fun place to play and enjoy a good meal.
There are four of us from Sun City that played there every Thursday for 4 years. One or more of us would always win something. We would play for two hours then eat at Austins and play some more. In late 2008 we started to see no wins and bad service.
We now drive an hour to Redhawk and the group is all smiles again.
Its sad to see what Thunder has become, Its well known that they dont pay their people fairly or treat them well.
Good luck with the new hotel, even though I will never stay there........I still feel like we paid for it.
BTW...... Redhawk will match your TV card right off and will work hard fr your repeat $$$
Nice Casino,great Machines,SLOW valet!!!!!.
I love Thunder Valley, My Wife always wins some kind of money at this casino. Very nice inside, alot of machines and LARGE selction of restaurants. Nice bar.The valet service is very slow, I will be back to thunder Valley. Thunder Valley should have a annual specials,birthday comps, for food or lower the slot machine prices on certains days.Great atmosphere, too many people just walking around (smoking) I love when she wins. I NEVER do!
THUNDER IS GREAT TO KICK BACK WITH FRIENDS,THERE CLUBS AWSOME BUT I AGREE THERE GREEDY WITH THERE REWARDS I THINK THEY SHOULD UPLIFT IT A TAD,ESPECIALLY TO PPL WHO HAVE BEEN GOING THERE FOR YEARS,
Seattle-based coffee chain lures caffeine addicts with upscale roasts, caramel frappuccinos, shaken iced teas and an extra shot of trendiness.. In Short For many, getting their daily jolt of java has become a daily morning ritual, and the cardboard cup with its infamous green label is the close companion of every coffee aficionado. Busy baristas work seamlessly behind the bar, juggling orders for their strongly-brewed drips and signature hot and cool beverages. While providing a wide selection of coffee specialties, pastries and various coffee related goods, patrons are invited to settle down in comfy armchairs and enjoy their favorite brews amid the chatter of the laidback yet caffeinated crowd.
