We stayed at the Thunderbird last night and four nights ago we stayed at the Hilton in Santa Rosa. Okay from outward appearance, the Thunderbird can't compare, but on every other level it meets or exceeds it. The rooms are recently remodeled, very nicely done. Very comfortable bed and our room had a microwave and a refrigerator (Hilton didn't have... More

Nothing special about it, just a great clean big room, excellent service, good breakfast, fun old but clean pool (not a lot of chlorine), and excellent value. Would definitely recommend it for other families/couples.

Based on our experience two years ago, we again reserved a room at this property, finding that additional improvements had been made. This year we obtained a room with one queen bed (our preference) and it was spacious. Shower stall and bathroom have been re-tiled. Swim pool water sparkled. We enjoy eating at a casual Mexican restaurant less than a... More

What looks like a run of the mill budget motel on the outside, truly is a gem on the inside! The rooms are well updated and very clean and the staff is very friendly. Smaller rooms, but with every amenity you might need. Amazing value for the cost!

This motel is in downtown Redding. Our stay was great except for the city noise, but that isn't the motel's fault. Our rooms backed up to a main street with the hospital 1/2 block away so there was the traffic noise and occasional sirens. The room and service were excellent. I recommend asking for a room on the office side... More

This older hotel has been completely renovated and was in excellent condition. The staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were very clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast did not have as many offerings as some other places but was adequate for our needs and the area they served in was very clean and neat. We felt we were getting a... More

I felt like this motel was a real American experience.. Like any motel that one would see depicted in a Road Trip movie. They had all the amenities: in room fridge, microwave, coffee maker, good lighting, suitcase stand, desk and table, modern TV, air conditioning. Their outdoor pool was refreshing, a good size and clean. Beyond the lodge is a... More

The Thunderbird is obviously an older hotel in the downtown area reminiscent of a bygone era, but it is perfectly serviceable for today. We spent one night here on a road trip and were well served. Our biggest complaint was the air conditioner. The temperature outside was over 100 so we were looking forward to a cool room. Unfortunately when... More
