Stayed during hotel week so prices were cheaper. Around 430 for 5 nights! Room was average, pretty clean, nothing special. Only complaint was noise level. On the second floor it sounded like a heard of elephants was going to fall through the ceiling from the room above us. Also, every time the neighbors used water it sounded like our bathroom... More

Went down for the 4th of July weekend. The hotel was pricey and lacked many normal accommodations like tissues and hair dryer. The shower didn't even have hot water kept changing temperatures and so tacky that we had a key to control the air if removed the air stops. Staff at the desk was nice but the cleaning staff was...

Checked in late on a Thursday night. It was after midnight so I called ahead to inform them I was running a bit late. The phone etiquette of the young lady who took my call was very pleasant and professional. Upon my arrival the gentleman who was working the Night Shift at the front desk was pleasant and helpful by... More

The best part about my stay here was when I got to return my keys and leave... Should've been a sign when I was checking in and the staff refused to let a man on the phone cancel... The rooms smell musty, until you mistakenly turn the a/c over to heat at 2am, then your room can smell like burnt... More

Stayed here from Sunday May 10-13 2015. Staff was friendly nice part of town close to beach. This is part of the Purnell properties that own Sun N Fun and Spinnaker Motel. The interior could use updated. Holes in some spots electrical outlets are lose can hardly plug anything in. My biggest issues were when we got to our room... More

A few weeks before this long weekend trip to OCMD, I was looking online for the best value I could find. I had a strict $600 budget for our 3-night stay. Because we'd stayed there before, I decided to call the Thunderbird Beach Motel to see if they had anything with that budget. I was told yes, they did. I... More

Certainly sorry to hear you feel you were lied to or taken advantage of. Our goal is that every guest has a great experience staying at the Thunderbird. It is unfortunate that you waited until March of the following year to bring this to our attention but would like to discuss it and hopefully resolve exactly what happened. Please contact... More

My boyfriend and I, along with his younger brother booked a room here for the Cruise In car shows. The location isn't bad, it's right on the water but being May, we didn't spend too much time out there anyways. The room was decent - no bugs, beds were fine and comfy. When we first arrived, there was an ear... More

Obviously, this hotel/motel isn't a 5 star resort, however it also never claimed to be. This was exactly what we were looking for when we planned our beach trip. The room was clean, comfortable, affordable, as well as close to the beach. Staff was very courteous. The room was a little outdated, however that didn't effect its ability to do... More

This place was horrible. We chose it because we had a dog. It's smelly and they say newly renovated - but that is if you are living in the 60's. Dump. The rooms with dogs are the pitts. They have a very stringent refund policy, also. Ruined our vacation.
