I have never left a review before but felt compelled to do so on this place. The room was so dirty I didn't want to touch anything. The furniture was old and had stains on it. My drapes didn't close completely and this was a ground floor room. The front desk receptionist was very nice. The housekeeping people were very... More

Best motel I've ever stayed in. The food was AMAZING. everyone was super extremely nice. The rooms were clean, beds were comfy, and service was five star. The pool is always open, lit heated saltwater and totally clean. I can't say enough about how great this is. Rate is very low also.

We drove through the night and finally got very tired around 5:30 AM. We called a few places to see if they had late check-out, thinking we’d check in around 6 AM and check out around 2 or 3 PM. Most places either didn’t allow it, or charged extra (or were too expensive to begin with for our budget). We... More

Our kids started pitching monster fits after being in the car too long. We were driving from DC to Florida and everybody had just had it. Our dog was with us so our options were severely limited. The Thunderbird said "ok," so Thunderbird it was. Overall, I can't complain. Everything was clean, if not shabby. The staff gets five stars.... More

The staff is amazing and that is as far as anything good goes. There was a white substance all over the bed skirt and corner of the bedside table. There was hair from someone shaving around the bathroom sink. The carpet is gross and the bedspread had cigarette burns. They did plant flowers and keep the grounds around the pool... More

I was very disappointed in this motel, the rooms were old and dirty and there was a hole in the bathroom ceiling over the tub. The attached buffet restaurant was undesirable with a dirty floor. We did eat in the bar area and that was ok. For breakfast you had to pay for orange juice with the complimentary breakfast, never... More

We were returning from Florida with a new pet dog. Wanted a location right off I-95 and needed a place to stay that would accept him. We have stayed here before, (last time 2003), so I checked pet policy, it stated they were allowed. Called and made a reservation to be sure it was okay (never traveled with a pet... More

We were traveling and decided to stop for a nights rest. We were looking for something inexpensive but clean and safe. We found the Thunderbird Inn for $55/night. This is not a 5 star hotel. The building is 40 years old and it shows. But the room was clean and the staff was very pleasant. The price included a buffet... More
