I was so impressed by the Thunderbird Inn, Clean room, comfortable bed, Great shower, but seriously, when was the last time you stayed somewhere that offered real glass drinking glasses, and honest to goodness coffee mugs? I hate plastic cups and usually bring my own coffee cups while traveling. And the view is simply wonderful I remember that area from... More

The only good thing I have to say is the beds were comfy. We stayed here for a last minute anniversary trip. 2 adults 2 children. The first night they messed up our room and gave us a room with one double bed. I instantly emailed the owner with no response even after the end of our 4 day stay.... More

Nice stay, was recmmended by my sister who stayed with her dog. Clean rooms, comfortatble bed and pillows, right next to downtown. Their eco-conciousness was a nice surprise and welcome. Quick walk right on edge of town, beside bus station, train museum and near welcome center.

This was my 2nd time staying at The Thunderbird Inn. My kids thought it was fine and everyone got a good night's sleep. The staff was extremely helpful and the $7.50 parking was great because on Easter weekend, I couldn't find any other spot and the full lots were at least $10 and some at $20. There is a Dot... More

We really enjoyed our experience! The retro flavor, the friendly staff, the RCs and Moon Pies that greeted us and the thick towels were a great plus! My only two suggestions to the hotel were better showerheads and wider parking spaces.

Least expensive hotel near downtown. Beds were very comfortable. Hotel a little old but sold as a throwback motel. We were close to most of our planned venues---movie tour , ghost tour and many restaurants. I was a little leery but it ended up being a bargainn.

We are budget-conscious travelers, and for the price, this place felt like the Hilton...but more fun. We met a long-time local in town, and when we told him (sheepishly) we were staying at the Thunderbird Inn, he lit up and said, "That's f&*%-ing awesome!" and proceeded to rave about what a good choice we'd made. So - Thunderbird Inn: budget-friendly,... More

Fabulous hotel, manager/maintenance man was extremely friendly and helpful as well as everyone else there. Loved the complimentary moonpies and RC colas. Loved the pet-friendly accommodations. They all really love animals which is always nice.

A flash back to the 60s, very campy with a basic motor lodge park at the front door of your room layout that is great if you are travelling with dogs. Brittany and Leslie were incredibly helpful when I needed to plug in my laptop to an actual ethernet connection after check out.
