Loved the RETRO look of hotel. Bed was very comfortable. Hotel close to all major attraction. Great price compared to other hotels in area. loved delicious krispy kreme doughnuts. Loved the toiletries attached to the wall unfortunately they were not for sale. Music playing in parking lot was a treat.

Spent a night here and found the room to be clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Not too far from the riverfront and an easy walk to restaurants and bars. Enjoyed the moon pies and rc colas and the classic funky tunes playing outside. Would stay here again.

I booked online and received an immediate email confirmation (double-checked it at that time to make sure the dates were correct). I called a few days before our stay just to make sure all was still good and it was. Arrived and checked in without any issue. The location is perfectly situated on the edge of the Historic District...close enough... More

I have to say, while planning this trip I was SUPER excited to be staying here. So excited, I had the couple we were meeting book their room here as well! We were to stay two nights and the four of us (who hadn't seen each other in months) were ready for an amazing weekend! They arrived before us, and... More

I am truly sorry you had a bad experience. I have researched your reservation and see where you made the reservation and the confirmation was sent. I also see where you called back for a new confirmation letter two weeks after the reservation was booked. We never want to get a date wrong. That is why we send our confirmations... More

The manager Mark really went out of his way to make sure I was a happy customer. If you have a problem of any sort just go to him or Leslie, they will fix it right away. They don't make customer service like that anymore. I appreciate that. Will definitely be back.

Doors did not lock in our first three rooms. The room smelled of over used febreeze. The cleaning crew woke us up talking really loud outside our room on day one. Day two the woke us up walking in the room early without knocking. Did not clean our room in between. The desk staff very nice. Donuts were good.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. I am glad that you enjoyed the krispy kreme doughnuts; they are always fresh and delicious! I am also pleased our desk staff was pleasant. I hate hearing that the housekeeping staff was loud. I find that rude and inconsiderate. I talk with them about that all of... More

Groovy and retro describe this cool hotel! Rooms were super clean and very spacious. I loved the moon pie and RC cola waiting on us on the nightstand. Staff was very courteous and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

Pros: pretty good location, comfortable beds, excellent service!!!! Cons: rooms are very small and the extra fees seem a bit much (parking, pet fee, etc) but we would probably stay here again. Loved the 60s theme.

We stayed at the Thunderbird for 5 days. It is an older hotel (built in the early 60s as I remember) but the rooms have been renovated in the last few years. It is pure 60s styling, with oldies tunes coming from the speakers in the lobby, such as it is. The beds were comfortable and the A/C worked very... More
