4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for three nights in early july. Loved the retro feel! The staff were really nice and helpful and welcomed us with popcorn and lemonade. Got a room on the ground floor and wasn't bothered at all with having guests right above us, couldn't hear them. The room was spacious and very clean, they had a company coming... More

I've happily stayed at The Thunderbird Inn at least ten times over the past 10 years and they have recently remodeled, however, it's not for the better of the property. I used to love The Thunderbird's quaint charming rooms and decor. Yeah, it's near a bus station and kinda loud and no it's not the Four Seasons, but it's cheap,... More

I chose this hotel for its cool retro vibe. The staff was friendly enough. But the hotel room wasn't all that wonderful..in their defense the manager said they were currently renovating so maybe a better experience if it the complete. When we entered the room there was a faint paint smell still, no remote, no outlet to plug in the... More

Lisa, I'm very sorry for what you experienced. We are about 2/3 through our renovation and there are still some issues to resolve. I hate that our project dampened your stay. Mark More

The hotel/motel is nothing special, to be honest, but it has immense charme and is absolutely close to town hall, historic district and Riverstreet. It has a free parking lot, donuts for breakfest and basically tidy. Good value for low price!

Viva la 50s! The Thunderbird celebrates aqua and orange and George Jetson decor without apology! The rooms are a bit cramped, but the staff is great and there's a nice "neighborhood" atmosphere with other guest; for instance we sat on our "stoop" and had a couple of early evening cocktails while meeting our fellow travelers. I loved the "green" effort... More

My son and I stayed in one of the newly renovated king size rooms. Very nice job with the reno! Great place to stay...I will be back! FYI: If you don't agree with the first price given for the room they will give you a 25% discount.

I'm pleased you like the renovated rooms! I'm also happy you were able to receive a great deal! We strive to always provide a nice value, up to offering huge discounts when we have a few extra rooms to sell. We'd rather sell a room to a new fan, than let it sit unloved. :) More

We stayed here when the motel opened some years ago and in comparison,I would say now it's the time to start looking at refreshing the decor before the place looks tired, changing the TVs to flat screen and so on. Hotel should also check the AC/heating which seems to be set a a certain temperature and no matter what you... More

You were here while that was going on, did you not get to peek in the rooms that were being renovated with new flooring, new furniture, new blinds, 43in flat screens? Lots of wonderful things are happening as I write this! I am sorry about the AC being set wrong. With the late onset of winter, we hastily switched them... More

Rooms are filthy. You can't sleep. Rooms are EXTREMELY noisy! You can hear EVERYTHING that goes on outside. You feel like you're on the street. Hotel is close to main areas but is not located in a pretty one. There is a bad neighborhood right behind the hotel. If you want to rest and have a pleasant trip, do yourself... More

My wife and I stayed one night at this motel with our two pets. The motel has easy access to and from the interstate highway I95. From the outside the motel is not much to look at and our room was dated and worn. It was however clean and comfortable and as such it met our needs. The staff were... More
