We were pleasantly surprised to find the room very quiet, clean and comfortable. They did not have much for breakfast, but the price compared to other motels in the vicinity made... More

We had dinner at the Chef Louie down the road from this and that was OK. - a bit over priced. The next morning we went to the Corn Palace -... More

We had a party of 5 women staying overnight after a 12 hour drive. The help at the front desk was wonderful, there was fruit water at the counter and everyone on the staff was very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at the Thunderbird on a busy Friday night of Labor Day weekend. I booked it online and received a very nice price of $79 with taxes. It's an older motel which was fine because we were just staying overnight on our way to Utah. Very convenient right off the interstate with many restaurants and gas stations right in... More
