Very nice owner that checked us in. Very clean. Prices are very reasonable. Will stay there again. The Mexican restaurant in the same parking lot was very good too. We highly recommend you stay here. They have completely remodeled.

Although affordable, the stay was somewhat disappointing. The room was rundown, noisy and the bed was uncomfortably lumpy. Having the coffee making facilities on the bathroom sink next to the toilet was not good. Most of the rooms appear to be getting updated and about time

I learned about this really nice motel on Trip Advisor and tried it . It is an extremely clean , well remodelled motel . Nice size rooms . We slept well, good tv channels. I would stop there again. It was in much better shape than many chain motels we stayed in .

The new owners of this hotel have done an excellent job of refurnishing it. Our room had fresh paint, was immaculately clean, and had a freshly remodeled bathroom with a newly retiled shower. For the price ($65 for two queens, plus a $10/per dog fee, which is quite normal), it was an excellent value. A train runs through that part... More

Our room at the Thunderbird was clean and comfortable, and the staff was friendly. The breakfast buffet was a good supplement to the food we brought. I am planning to stay there again the next time I'm in Redding.

We stayed here for a night while in Redding. It is a great value- only $60 for the night. It's not the fanciest place in the world but it was clean, good location, felt safe, ample parking, decent staff at the front desk. If you are on a budget and need a decent place to stay- this is a great... More

They newly remodeled so the hotel is way nicer than any hotel in its price range. Nice, clean rooms and walking distance to nice restaurants. Little noisy in the morning though and the free breakfast isn't even with showing to, unless you like toast and butter or fruit loops.

This establishment recently underwent a major overhaul. Prior to that it, it would have rated one or two stars much as the rest of the motels located downtown still do. If you want to stay in downtown Redding this is the only place to bed down for the night.

I am a regular customer following my comparative experience in several downtown motels. The motel's room quality increased significantly with new furniture, flat screen TV's, carpets and bath renovations. When compared to local motels in the same price range, Thunderbird Lodge's services, host congenality and room quality excel. A winter challenge is room temperature, which may need to be adjusted...

Based on the reviews we decided to check this place. Could a motel charging $62 (tax included) be as good as others were saying? We had no reservation as I wanted to be sure we would be staying. The desk keeper showed me the room, a refurbished end unit on the second floor. It was a nice room (but certainly... More
