I stayed here 2 nights. While the building itself is probably 50 years old, it is well maintained, clean and tastefully decorated. They had no breakfast, but is within easy walking distance to several good cafes, sports bars and restaurants. What sets this motel apart is the management. The couple who own it are extremely accommodating; they were eager to... More

I was impressed with the Thunderbird Motel. It was only fifty bucks and very clean. It seems as though the husband and wife team do it all. Easy access. Right on the highway. Cool vintage sign and rooms I'm assuming fifties mid-century. Trip Advisor makes us use too many characters to post.

We strongly disagree with the excellent & very good reviews, even the average! Extremely dated, old and run down. No Kleenex, no coffee or pot & the TV remote barely worked. The refrigerator sounded like a Mack truck all night, possibly lowest watt light bulbs made except for the one in the light outside the very large window at the... More

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
