My husband and I just spent a night at the Thunderbird and while we found our room clean, we did not enjoy our stay. The bed and pillows were not comfortable at all. The channel selection was limited and while the shower stall was nice we missed having a tub. If you're looking for a standard hotel room this is... More

This is my second stay at this hotel and both occurrences have been enjoyable. Rooms are great (big and with decent furnishings, and enough space to lounge around) and the amenities are wonderful. The second story lounge is the place to visit: fully stocked with snacks to take on your drive, a refrigerator stocked with sodas and juices, and even... More

The hotel is located in the campus of the School of Global Management so be prepared to look for that, then the hotel front desk. Our GPS had told us we had arrived but were confused because we didn't know it was located on the campus. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a little outdated but functioned...

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.

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
