Clean, comfortable, reasonable rates, owners were very friendly, As we are seniors we really appreciated getting a ground level room...no stairs to contend with. The shower was to die for....lots of pressure and hot water.There was a diner right next door, recommended by the motel owner, and it was terrific as well. Would definitely recommend this motel to friends and... More

I just had a 2 night stay in the Thunderbird Motor Inn and was thoroughly impressed with the cleanliness of the room, the staff and the cost. If your planning a trip to Duncan, and are looking for a super clean affordable place to stay, don't hesitate to book at the Thunderbird.

This little Motor Inn was a lovely surprise. Looks like ordinary motel from outside & nothing really special or fancy about inside except very clean rooms. We were on bottom floor & rooms had wood finished floors so added to the clean look instead of carpeting which in some places is the downside . Spacious rooms, 2 queen beds, comfortable... More

We had need of a place to stay in Duncan and chose the Thunderbird Motor Inn because of trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The reviews were spot on...great location, wonderfully clean with great service. I was very surprised at how quiet it was despite being one block away from the hiway. The bed was comfortable and we... More

We recently stayed at the Thunderbird Motor Inn for a couple of nights. We found this place to be very clean and comfortable. The owners were most understanding and accommodating when we let them know of a possible last minute reservation change. The fellow who checked us in was also very accommodating and efficient. I don't hesitate to recommend the... More

I came to Duncan for the Xavier Rudd concert. I was impressed with the fabulous customer service, helpfulness from the front desk and assistance with my laundry needs. As a professional cleaner for over 15 years, I am very picky and went over my room to ensure both it was clean and I had all the amenities I needed. Not... More

From the outside this motel does not look too inviting. However, the rooms, although dated, are spotlessly clean. We stayed here because of the location, close to family that we were visiting and also easy to walk everywhere. We stayed three days and found the staff extremely pleasant and helpful.

The people at the office were very friendly and helpful. The rooms however were nothing special. Beds were hard, no luggage racks, bathroom door had to be left open while in it...its so tiny. Wifi is terrible. Next time we are in the Cowichin Valley we will continue to drive to another town. Not sure how this motel got such... More
