Thunder Valley to start hotel expansion

The United Auburn Indian Community is setting in motion their delayed plans to finish the last three floors of the hotel they opened in 2010 at Thunder Valley Casino Resort.

Construction was suspended due to the ongoing recession at the time, but now they are preparing to finish the project, adding 111 rooms which should be completed in about 18 months according to the Sacramento Bee.

The Bee quoted casino spokesman Doug Elmets as saying, “Business is outstanding and is reflective of … our ability to market Thunder Valley as a destination resort, which makes hotel rooms obviously more attractive.”
