We planned a one week stay in February, because the price was inexpensive and based on past experience we did not expect much more than a clean room in a fair location. Unfortunately, the hotel did not plan for satisfactory snow removal for the hotel parking lot. And it does snow in Missoula, everyone knows, and we could say that... More

My boyfriend & I stayed here after a very long day of driving. It was late & we we exhausted. Didn't realize how icky the room was at first, but the carpet was filthy. I wouldn't take off my sandles. There was a couch in our room that was gross & covered with stains. All the furniture was stained. The... More

We found this great property from a sign along the street. What a pleasant surprise. First, it is American owned and operated, the owners name is Thelma and was at the front desk when we checked in. She was very hospitable and friendly. She gave us a newly remodeled room, room 219 with a king bed. The room was quite... More

I checked in to the Thunderbird after a 14 hour drive. The attendent gave me a king pillow top bed. I went to the room and got ready to sleep, when I noticed 2 room keys on the table ( mine was in my pocket ) I thought it was odd but in my sleepy stuper I rationalized it was... More

Delightful Missoula motel goes above and beyond. The sense of feeling welcome and being comfortable means I'll come back time and time again. This is my first review ever. It's worth sharing, as the cost/benefit favors the customer in a big way. The Thunderbird is a motel of excellence. Lofty words; well deserved.

This was a great place to stay with our two kids, ages 5 and 4! Very good breakfast each morning, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Close to downtown Missoula and right next door to a grocery store which was also very convenient! Great place to stay!

Boyfriend and I stayed at the Thunderbird in June, as we were in town for a Primus concert (PRIMUS!!!). We were looking for a cheap, cheap stay somewhere, as we had thrown our trip together last minute and didn't have much cash for spending this time around. We stopped into the Thunderbird to find that it did have rooms available,... More

I stayed 10 days at the Thunderbird in November -- my first impression was that the room stinks and is run down. Pretty much my final impression was that the room stinks and is run down. Bedding and towels were clean. Nice inclusion is the fridge and microwave. Breakfast is minimal but OK. I did like the view down the... More

We came to this hotel thinking it would be really nice, it was family owned which we always support compared to the big corporate hotels. It turned out to be the worst mistake ever. We went up to the room to a freezing cold room, so we wanted to jump in our Jacuzzi we had paid extra for. We filled... More

Sure, it's an older property - but the rooms have been kept clean and are roomy. Ours came with a refrigerator and microwave. The WiFi worked well (we were about halfway down the building). I didn't like the cramped parking lot in front, but we parked our car in the back lot and that had plenty of room.There's a hallway... More
