To most it appears clean. But keep Looking Closer and it is NOT. Old and out dated. Bathroom is small. And I found a stain on my bed GROSS. Would most likely NOT STAY AGAIN. The Best Western is More appealing to me. Good Luck to you on your stay. I'm scared to sleep in the Bed. And take a... More

I stayed here for 20 days while placing my child in school. The management was extremely friendly and helpful. There is not a hair dryer in the room but there are many at the front desk. You just need to ask. Same with irons, ironing board and many other occasionally needed items. The living area is spacious and the bathroom... More

Very helpful and friendly staff upon arrival. Room was clean and comfortable. Great location. This hotel might be a little bit dated but it had everything we needed. Even though it was close to the highway, it was extremely quiet.

We spent one evening there while in Duncan. The room are a very good size and very clean. The restaurant=t has excellent food and service. The owners have had the facility for over a year and are continuously improving the facility. The front desk staff are very good

Just off the highway in Duncan, the Thunderbird Motor Inn offers nothing fancy, but it has clean, well-maintained accommodations at a reasonable price. The motel is adjacent to the York Diner, but we had no meals there, and so we cannot comment other than to note that the restaurant does not open until 7:30 for breakfast, which is too late... More

Have stayed here multiple times and the service is always amazing. The owners go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need. The rooms are always kept very clean. The only reason the rating isn't 5/5 is because the internet really sucked and would cut out every 5-10 minutes. When staying for an... More

Twice we have stayed here while traveling through the area on our bicycles. Both times the owners have been extremely pleasant and helpful. This last trip even driving one of our people to several stores to look for spare tubes. The rooms are vey clean, and the facility show obvious attention to details and care. Also, the York Diner in... More

The owners were very welcoming and helpful. I was so glad to have laundry facilities. The room was very clean but I give it a lower rating because the carpet in the room was significantly stained which made it seem dirty. I highly suggest a different color vs. light blue. Also, the internet service was unreliable - and that is... More

I recently had to travel to Duncan 3 times for family related business. I had stayed somewhere else the first time but being a single female traveller, I wanted someplace that felt safe. Voila! The couple who manage the property couldn't have done more for me. The room was spotless, the cleaners were very professional and friendly. I definitely recommend... More

I had occassion to spend a night at this wonderful friendly motel on August 16, 2014 while my new house was still under construction. Again, Martin and Maureen (the owners) greeted and welcomed me, inquired if I had any special requests, needs or concerns and offered me a room in my preferred location. This motel is clean, cheerfully decorated with... More
