This is my favorite hotel in the entire country, and I have been all over the country. I was thoroughly charmed by the fact that the rooms were not faced toward the outside. When you walk up to your room, you walk over carpet-covered floors to a room that is in an inner hallway, like the old apartments. I felt... More

I can't believe in this day and age the condition of the Thunderbird Inn! It was the worst hotel experience we have had in a long time. Partly because we took the bait of a great deal from Hotwire and are quite disappointed that they even have a place like this in their repertoire!! They compare it to Comfort Inn... More

We have been stopping by this restaurant for years and from time to time we would have to select another plate because of a plate still containing hardened food. But today's experience was absolutely horrible.. We pulled down 4 plates before finding a clean one, or at least one that didn't contain food. The little bowls also had dirty bowls.... More

Not for families or couples, more of a trucker/construction worker over nighter . Very dated; non-smoking room smelled of smoke, furniture also; TV, but nothing else, and very noisy outside. We missed the breakfast that was set up until 10:30, was closed at 10:20; kitchen staff was leaving when we arrived for breakfast, so it was shut down way before... More

I should have confirmed this place using Trip Advisor first instead of just Google maps. No microwave internet did not work furniture dirty holes in bed spread. We did ask for smoking room, but the others were probably not much better. The desk clerk was nice but he mixed up our nights. Fortunately he still had the first floor room... More

This place is awful. The carpet is beyond worn; it has large holes in it and smells. The bathtub and shower looks 40 years old or more, past due to be replaced. When we were there it did not appear there were familes and couples staying there. The whole place looked liked intoxicated roudy men who were looking for a... More

This place was so old, and there is nothing wrong with that except they had not cleaned the carpet of smells nor the old old furniture there. I could not sleep in the bed as it had lumpy springs hitting me in my back. The next morning we thought we'd maybe take them up on the "free Breakfast" nasty is... More

We waited at front desk 15 min. before the desk clerk finished his conversation about how hard he works. with the kitchen staff. The lobby should have turned us around, shabby torn furniture. When we finally got into our room there was a smell, our daughters room as well had a funky smell. The room did appear clean as well... More
