Very spacious room and what a great swimming pool. Book with this hotel directly. Do not go to any hotels.com websites. Hotel staff are very unaware of important events happening in Missoula so if there is a popular event, you better book early and directly with this hotel.

So many things went wrong. When we went to the front desk somebody was very rude & unfriendly. We were told we had a continental breakfast. That my mom could only drink milk because everything had gluten in it & my mom was told they had gluten free things. For breakfast there wasn't a very big selection of breakfast for... More

Rooms are drive up so its convenient to unload luggage. Rooms are spacious. Staff is accommodating and helpful. Only thing is laundry not working properly, and no place for pets to potty. All in all I would choose this place again. Good choice. Comfortable beds and rooms.

I hate to write another bad review, but be forewarned of a couple of things. First, I booked a room for my daughter for Saturday night through Priceline. I received a confirmation from Priceline, and I had never used Priceline before (more of a Hotwire gal myself). I also called the Thunderbird, but they did not answer after about 25... More

This is a basic motel. The rooms were large, beds comfortable, and very clean. I would recommend this as a stop when traveling through. All staff were pleasant. Only addition that I would like to see is some fresh fruit at the breakfast room otherwise an adequate continental breakfast. Will be traveling again in about a month and will definitely... More

We needed a place to stay after having a few beers downtown Missoula and the beds were nice, the shower was made for people shorter than 6' tall. The age of the property is obvious when you go to plug in your cell phone etc. The room was clean and had a microwave and fridge. The room we had was... 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.
