“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2009

My wife and I have stayed at the Thunderbird Suites several times, and we've always had a positive experience. The service is great, and the price is extremely reasonable for a two-room suite.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2009

I think this charming hotel is really fairly priced if not generous, for what it has to offer. From the moment we arrived, we were treated as if we were staying at a 5-star luxury resort. The staff is very accomodating, friendly, professional & helpful. My husband & I made use of most of the hotel's amenities. We were just there to relax and enjoy a little getaway. It was really nice to have a breakfast buffet set up for us every morning that we were there (this was complimentary because we booked directly online). There were nice touches to our spacious room. I was pleased with the comfy bed and was impressed that our suite had a Herman Miller chair. We had a great view of the courtyard pool. I was pleasantly surprised at the high quality of food offered at the Silver Wings Restaurant. We really enjoyed our meal there and got to relax in the pool in the evening. I'm a bit of a shopaholic and loved the fact that the hotel was so close to Kierland Commons. We also explored the Old Town Scottsdale for a bit. Overall, I would highly recommend this place to anyone. We definitely enjoyed our mini vacation in Scottsdale because of it and will stay again if we are ever in the area.

The location was really ideal for us.

Stayed here for a short 'getaway'. It was over Labor Day weekend. Not very many travelers there. Nice bar, food was good, room was excellent. Room has two sections, living room then bedroom. Nice amenities. Free wifi or computers in lobby. Breakfast buffet was sufficient and glad it was included in room. Negatives if you want to call them that: hot tub was not so hot and hard to find timer for the jets, our room did not have flat screen tv's but who cares. Great place, I would stay there again.

Our 8 day stay was pleasant & we would recommend to anyone looking for a clean room at a great price. We paid $58/nite & included the breakfast buffet (price $7.50 I believe). Buffet is not worth the price in my opinion. Rooms are clean, Staff friendly & helpful; Property older, but well maintained. Bedroom & living area separated by door which was nice because my husband was recovering from surgery. Bed, & especially the pillows, were very comfy. Bathroom is TOO SMALL & difficult to move around in, plus the water & sewer pipes are above the light fixture & you must listen to that noise everytime someone in other rooms runs the water or flushes the toilet. The A/C unit is VERY NOISY and we constantly had to adjust the volume on the TV. Microwave, coffee maker and fridge were handy since our stay was so long.

we came as a staycation for our anniversary. our room was spacious and quiet even though the scottsdale airport is next door-never heard a plane in our room. our room was on the northeast corner of the first floor. we found that many of the negative reviews were way off. room was clean, service adequate if not indifferent when I told the girl on duty when we checked out that I had fallen in the bathroom she didn't even ask if I was o.k.. the bathroom was very tiny but since we don't hang out in the bathroom it was fine.

We found the hotel to be an excellent bargain for Scottsdale. The property is not new but well kept and in a quiet corner of Scottsdale...off the main streets yet very close to excellent shopping and dining. Rooms were great...loved the two seperate rooms...living and bedroom. Room had refrigerator, microwave, coffee and setting for 4 in dishes. Only negative and minor at that was the bathroom...could have been a little larger....the other two rooms made up for it. Pool was clean as was the hot tub. Staff was wonderful, helpful and courteous. Buffet breakfast was substantial with hot foods. Property has restaurant and lounge.
We definitely will stay at this hotel on future Scottsdale and/or Phoenix trips.

Had to do a business meeting in Scottsdale in July and decided to try Scottsdale Thunderbird Suites. It was wonderful decision and had signficant service at very resonable value. Would recommend strongly if Scottsdale is in your destination plans.
