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

The hotel's staff are very friendly, from the front desk to housekeeping. We stayed with our 10 month old and would have breakfast at the 2nd floor kitchen. We spilled water and milk a couple of times and dropped food (yes, we are a bunch of messy eater) but the staff was nice enough to help us clean up. The... More

Stayed here for a week and really enjoyed the campus feeling of the Executive Inn. Rooms are great, staff is super friendly and the atmosphere brings you back to student times. The Campus Pub is a strong recommendation - also the Commons - will certainly come back!

Our group was in Phoenix for 5 days to catch some Spring Training games. We chose this location because it is on a quiet campus, has great outdoor spaces, has good rooms and has competitive pricing. We have already planned to come back here next spring.

Okay, fellow tripadvisorans, I will admit to you in the narrative of this review that I have rated this hotel higher than I normally would, and I did so for a reason--this hotel is pretty darn cool. I have a fondness for this place that transcends a few fairly (for me) significant negatives. As always with my reviews, if you... More

Open to public for weekends, otherwise dorm type accommodations for adults. Well kept, great staff, but old and out of the way. Pool unheated and no hot tub, so a no go for our February visit. Good price though, nearly half of other Glendale options.
