Upon arrival we were greeted by a very friendly staff. Our room was clean and comfortable. I plan to stay there whenever we stay in Phoenix. This was a last minute choice and very glad we chose this one. Great price too.

Needed a hotel in Glendale on short notice and sounded interesting on Google search. We stayed 3 nights and were very impressed with the location (quiet) and amenities. A unique feature was the second floor lobby supplied with free snacks and beverages. We will definitely stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at the Thunderbird Executive Inn for 2 nights over New Years for the Fiesta Bowl. We were very impressed with our overall experience. First impressions mean a lot. Driving to the lobby we noted a superb buffer zone around the complex, well-maintained landscaping and very friendly/helpful staff at the desk. Travelers are often hungry, so... More

Nice, cute, clean hotel. Great and helpful staff. We went for the Fiesta Bowl and it was a very convenient location. Fun little social room stocked with drinks and snacks 24 hours a day. I would definitely stay there again the next time the Broncos are at Fiesta Bowl.

the sweet spot in our christmas trip was the thunderbird executive inn. from the moment we arrived we were treated as though we are special, not just another reservation number. the building is separated by a grassy area the size of a baseball park making for a quiet stay. The room is large enough to really spread out in. the... More

I returned to Thunderbird for an alumni event and my experience was great. Late (1am) check-in was no problem, complimentary coffee and breakfast was satisfactory. I stayed in the main building, which was convenient - but I discovered that the rooms not in the main building were a little more spacious and had better and larger showers my next trip... More

Thank you Thunderbird staff for your outstanding treatment of us.
