I stayed here for around two weeks. This place makes you feel that you are back to college days. The rooms are right sized and bathrooms are modern. The beds were comfy and the study area was good and wifi was fast. Overall I liked the room and service. The reception desk is very helpful. They also have a nice... More

We stayed here for 9 days last month for Spring Training and, for the most part, enjoyed it very much. Let's start with the good: Our room was clean and modern with good wifi, a huge, spotless bathroom, tons of storage and a comfortable bed. There was also a mini-fridge, flat screen tv and giant, walk-in shower. The grounds are... More

Thunderbird Executive Inn doesn't really seem like it is designed to be a place for lodging, as the parking is a little spread out, and the rooms are on the smaller side. Nevertheless, it is a good find in the Valley of the Sun. It gives you a close option to the ballparks of Peoria and Glendale for spring training,... More

Stayed here over 5 days to see Seattle Mariners Spring Training games @ Peoria Sports Complex. So easy! Up 59th to Bell Road, left on Bell down to 83rd (In and Out Burger is your landmark), and left again puts you at Stadium Drive and the Peoria Sports Complex, home of the San Diego Padres and the Mariners, in 10-15...

From the moment we checked in the hotel was at our service. It is also a Business University with huge beautiful grounds all around. The snacks offered were very abundant. They have a Snack Room upstairs where there are snacks 24/7. They also had a light continental breakfast there too. In the lobby was fresh fruit, water and more snacks... More

The Thunderbird Executive Inn is a great and affordable place to stay. Located in the Campus you can take advantage of many of the Campus ' amenities, like the pool and the pub and dining room. In the Inn itself there is a room with 24 hours worth of food and drink. The rooms are clean and spacious and very... More

We so enjoyed our stay here. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. Make sure to take a walk around the grounds as it has a lot of history. As an old Air Force Base, this was very interesting. Spoke to one of the students here that is getting his Masters Degree here now and he gave us... More

We spent 6 nights at the Thunderbird, and our experience was positive. It is a little difficult to find the office the first time there (since it is in the middle of the management school campus), but follow the signs pointing to the "Executive Inn" and you will get there. There are several units with rooms extending out from the... More

I graduated from Thunderbird in the late 70's. I had heard there ways a inn associated with the school. I believe they may have converted some dorm rooms into rooms. Our room had only a shower, but a nice bathroom. For $99.00 it was perfect. The amenities included free breakfasts, free snacks plus beverages soft drinks, water, fruit juiciest to... More
