4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very clean room. Great price. Close to restaurants. This was just a stop on a long drive, so we were looking for clean, quiet and pet-friendly. The Thunderbird did not disappoint. No extra charge for our dog was an extra bonus.

I saw this via TripAdvisor and booked out direct to get the discounted rate. So glad I did. It was convenient, clean, quiet and economical. I also recommend Clearie's, the restaurant just down the street. Fine dinning at a coffee shop price.

I stayed here for work at Shasta Regional Med Center. Although in downtown Redding, this motel was newly refurbished with clean and comfy rooms, and within walking distance of several restaurants. The owners were very generous to accommodate my unusual work hours and let me check in early and not be disturbed during the day. I highly recommend!

The old, original THUNDERBIRD marquee was seriously cool and added to the charm of this older hotel. Older - but very nicely updated and very comfortable. Easy to get to from the freeways, the THUNDERBIRD is quiet and peaceful. Great beds, a variety of pillows, and premium linens all add to a wonderful stay. Quite possibly the best value in... More

Check in was easy and our room was absolutely lovely. Great colors, stylish decor and everything was immaculate. We asked for an upper floor quiet room and that's exactly what we got. What was surprising in a motel in this price range was the attention to detail. Even the bathroom had good lighting. AC was great and not too loud.... More

Great place to stay right off the freeway---easy access---rooms are clean and comfortable. Front desk person was very nice and helpful. It also has in the same parking lot a Black Bear Diner that has great food. No need to stay anywhere else if you are passing through. We will stay here again.

We stayed here after visiting Lassen Volcanic National Park, which is at an hour's drive. This is a great motel with well decorated, spacious rooms with fridge, micro-wave, and HBO channels. The pool was really well maintained. Breakfast is served in a nice and light room. No pre-packed sandwiches but toasted bread, danish, cereals, yoghurt, and fruit. What a surprise!... More

We were there for one night on our way to Lassen Volcanic park. It was a hot August night, and the A/C in our room does not work. It was very loud and does not send any cool air. We had to turn it off or we can't sleep. This is a motel style lodge. The breakfast is very basic.... More

I'm sure the Thunderbird Lodge was probably in existence along the old highway through Redding when I drove through with my family in the '60s. It has been remodeled and is the equivalent of the best of any along the I-5 corridor. The decor of the king-bedded room was that of a much-more expensive lodging. An immaculate bathroom with all...

Stayed overnight w/ 2 business colleagues, late arrival, very early departure. Room was clean, comfortable. AC worked. Staff helpful. Don't know about the breakfast as we were gone at 5AM. The Thunderbird had a lousy reputation several years ago, but has obviously cleaned up both physically and operationally. Would be happy to stay there again.
