I cannot really agree with all the very positive reviews here, even though we had a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed. OK, but not more than that, and not very good value for money. There is a nice diner next door, serving both breakfast and dinner, with a very extensive menue.

Thank you for staying with us! We were pleased that you enjoyed our excellent diner and had a good night's sleep. The vast majority of our guests tell us us they find our rooms exceptionally clean, comfortable, and very affordable. You will always receive a better rate by reserving directly with our property; booking agents charge a commission when you... More

We chose the Thunderbird because we were looking for budget (but not scary) lodgings, and it was in our travel guides. We called and got the rate, which was very acceptable, and headed over. We knew that we'd made a good decision as soon as we met our hosts, who couldn't have been lovelier and more helpful. They told us... More

All you have to do is meet Maureen & Martin at the front desk and you will know this will be a very nice experience. I will be honest, I normally try to avoid non-chain accommodations and motels are not my usual pick as those of you who follow my reviews will know, however due to a project budget proposal... More

I was looking for an economical, clean, comfortable place to stay. The Thunderbird Motel exceeded my expectations! It was well under $100 per night ($85 including taxes) and my room was clean, comfortable, great wifi connection, and nice comfy bed! The owners (namely Maureen) were amazing....friendly, helpful, accommodating. I had time to kill before meeting up with some family and... More

This accommodation is a treasure with very friendly owners.. Rooms were super clean, bed was comfortable and it was quiet. Great location, close to restaurants and shopping and the onsite restaurant served very generous portions.

From check in to check out it was a fabulous place to spend our weekend in Duncan. The rooms were very clean and the beds very comfortable. The owners and staff make the stay enjoyable. Will definitely stay again

Due to my work, I travel to different places in a year and always stays in big known hotels. Best Western in Duncan was full so I was recommended to the Thunderbird. A bit nervous but surprisingly, room was very clean, excellent personnal service provided by both owners and price was more than competitive. Needed a room on the following... More

I'm very happy my friends suggested I stay at the this motel during my visits to Duncan. I couldn't have asked for more personable service, comfortable beds and very clean rooms. The service was incredible. They paid attention to the little details that made my stay extra comfortable, checked in with me to see if all of my needs were... More

Its not very often that I review a place of stay. But I have had to stay here for 2 nights in the past week. All I can say is that the Thunderbird should be a role model for other motels. The place is a little old and dated..but is a great place to stay. Friendly people..clean rooms and good... More
