Traveling through we stayed here 1 night. Not a common or popular name brand hotel but the room was clean, they had pool & hot tub available. Staff was friendly and pleasant. They offered alcoholic beverages if you desired for minimal cost. Pleased and will stay again if I travel that way.

The room was clean with the expected amenities - fridge, microwave, flat-screen TV. Had a heat lamp in the bathroom, too - love that for getting out of the shower. The staff was friendly and helpful. The wi-fi connection was solid and fast. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

In Mitchell for business I liked the retro look of the Thunderbird Lodge and got a room. Not fancy but fine. But in the morning there was no hot water. I called the desk, they admitted trouble, said to wait 20 minutes. 40 minutes later, still no hot water and pushing the clock to meet an appointment, I gave up... More

Thunderbird Lodge is a clean, comfortable, convenient place to stay in Mitchell. Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was nice and had a fridge and microwave. The bed was very comfortable and I slept well. There is a 24 hour restaurant and a gas station/convenience store next door which was very handy. I'd definitely stay at Thunderbird again if... More

The staff were very helpful and great to work with. Explained everything clearly and assisted me in finding an excellent place to eat which was in walking distance from the hotel. The whirlpool was an added bonus and very clean. I would visit this place again.

A great value for a clean, comfortable room with friendly staff. The bed and pillows were very nice, and the room was clean with a huge fridge/freezer. Only a $10 pet fee. My only complaints would be the noise outside at night and the hundreds of cigarette butts littered outside.

Thanks so much for leaving a review here on trip advisor! I'm biased, of course, but in my opinion the value we provide can't be beat here in Mitchell. We try to provide our guests with everything they need and leave out the stuff you don't... This helps us in keeping our costs down and we pass those savings on... More

This was an awesome lodge. Wonderful front desk and housekeeping. Older lodge, well taken care of and close to so much. We walked to our restaurants for meals. We stayed two extra nights. We left something behind and Matt called to let us know. They go above and beyond for their guests. Thank you so much for a great stay!

Nice place. We were welcomed by an effusive and efficient young gal at the front desk, and she ultimately steered us to a great steak joint right behind them (pun intended). Rooms were very spacious, beds were comfortable, and the wifi worked great. Mitchell is a friendly town, and these nice folks were great representatives of the community. Right off... More
