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

Perfect for the price, four of us were there in two rooms, to visit family in Glendale for this Thanksgiving weekend! This was my sisters 2nd stay and all four of us thought this place was a gem!

While the facility was nice, when I checked into my room it was obvious that the ac was not working. A maintenance person soon came to repair ti ac unit which was located on the roof, above the room. When he finished the repair he came to check to see if the ac was properly cooling, which it was. He... More

Thank you Thunderbird staff for your outstanding treatment of us. There were three of us ladies visiting family in town and the staff could not have been more accommodating, especially the front desk clerk who brought us a Phillips head screw driver and batteries for toys we were bringing to family. Who does this! The hotel was clean and beautiful... More

I've stayed here a couple of times while attending executive management courses. The rooms in the inn are average hotel rooms, but the service by the front desk and staff are excellent. Bathrooms are small, typically with just a shower and small vanity. All have a work-station desk. Another great convenience is the lounge area, open to all 24-7. It... More
