Its a cheap motel with good beds! quiet and the owner is very helpful. no frills except ice. we could've stayed a block away for double the price and gotten a lot of frills! I do think it's cheaper to book online then to drive up without reservations!

Stayed there for a week on business. Very good weekly rate and unlike most weekly rate stays, they service your room daily. Very friendly and helpful "on site owners". They even gave me a bag of homemade beef jerky on checkin. It's an older motel but the owners take pride in the place. Very clean and comfortable beds. Nothing fancy... More

I've started to expect a lot from TripAdvisor finds (in terms of walking in and going "oh, this is nice!") and unfortunately, this one fell a bit short of the mark. It was nice enough, and the price was great -- clean, big room but very old-fashioned looking and needing some sprucing up. My first impression was that the room... More

Typical older roadside motel but in good condition and a deal for $49. Clean, comfortable bed, friendly owner (who will talk your head off if you let her!). Beware of the shower. Its a little tricky to get it to work. Never saw one like it, but it works fine if you ask the owner how.

This is a great motel with a great couple that has owned it for a long time. When we arrived without a reservation we got one of the last two rooms. So I do suggest booking ahead by calling them - the have been at 90% full for the past few years. This is an L shaped one floor motel... More

I travel 3 nights per week yearly and this was, to date, the worst of the year for me. For starters, a wet towel was left behind from the previous night. The carpet did not appeal to me to take off my socks. Strands of hair left in and around the sink. And, to top it off, at least 30... More

Our room was HUGE!! It was also very clean and the bed was comfy. There were plenty of towels in the bathroom. The decor is what I would call "eclectic retro". If you are expecting the Plaza Hotel you will be disappointed. But if you want a very reasonably priced, clean and comfortable motel room, you will be happy! If... More

We stayed 2 nights here and was very happy with our visit. The bed was comfortable, the room was very clean, and there was plenty of hot water. The couple running the motel was pleasant and friendly. If I am in the area again I would definitely plan to stay at the Thunderbird.

When we first saw this little independent motel, we had our doubts about staying here. But the room looked clean and we could park the car right outside the door, and they had wifi and the price was right, so we gave it a try. Surprisingly, I had the best night's sleep here that I had in the past 3... More

This is an old motel. The owners were very nice and easy to talk to. We stayed for 4 days and they were very good to address any problems we had. I do have one warning to give. If you go to Dodge City in the summer you will have to deal with the flies(in the motel, resturants, bathrooms, outside,... More
