Thunder Valley Casino & Resort

My husband and I went to Thunder Valley Casino & Resort last Thursday for a one night Getaway.  It is in Lincoln, Ca only a 1.5 hour drive from us, so it is a great one night place to go.  This is the nicest Indian casino I have ever been too.  I love the decor, it is all earth tones, no sickening purple & pink carpets & wall papers.  I think what I like the most, being a non-smoker, is this casino dosen’t smell like smoke.  They must have an incredible ventilation system.

The rooms are the nicest casino rooms I have ever seen and I have been to casinos in NJ, Vegas, Reno, Tahoe and California.  The beds are super comfy, the bathroom is awesome!  It has a big soaking tub and a separate marble shower.  They have Keurig coffee makers   in the room! So bring your own k-cups if you like more than 1 cup in the morning.  They supply 2ea of coffee, decaf and teas.  Speaking of coffee, we found a self serve free coffee station in the casino!  No more waiting 30 mins in the line at the one coffee shop in the casino.

We ate breakfast and lunch in the Thunder Cafe it was also very good!  They served one of the best hamburgers I have ever had.  Seriously!  For breakfast we both had NY steak & eggs.  The steaks and eggs were cooked perfectly!

I treated myself to the Popular Spa Package.  100 mins of pure bliss!  It included a body polish with a salt scrub, a 50 min massage, I chose deep tissue, this also included hot stone therapy after that, I got a pedicure!  The spa facilities are beautiful and relaxing I could have spent all day in there.  I will certainly be back for more spa treatments.

If you are in the Sacramento area, looking for a place to stay, I highly recommend the Thunder Valley Casino & Resort.  If you don’t like to gamble there is shopping galore just a mile or 2 away in Roseville.

The Peppermill Casino & Resort in Reno Nv

It’s been a while since I posted.  I have been so busy.  My husband & I escaped to Reno for Christmas.  I thought it would be weird not being around friends & family for Christmas, but we had a GREAT time!.

The Peppermill Hotel Casino is remodeling but it was not really noticeable to us.  We got there Christmas eve.  I was surprised how busy it was.  Christmas day everybody cleared out of the place, so by dinner time, there was no line to the Christmas buffet.  The food was great for a buffet!  I don’t normally go to buffets, but this one was really good and relaxing.  I usually do all the cooking for Christmas dinner so this was a treat for me!

We stayed in a spa suite.  It was wonderful and well worth the extra $$.  All the spa rooms also have a steam shower big enough for 2!  I love the steam shower…. (update 2/2012 – I think they took out all the steam showers in the renovation)

We had such a great time I am seriously thinking of making this a Christmas tradition for us.  It was relaxing and fun during a very busy time of the year for me.
