We incorrectly booked for Friday night but when we arrived on Thursday, the night manager was welcoming and helpful in adjusting our reservation. The room was surprisingly quiet - even though it was on the first floor and near the office. The Thunderbird is far enough off the main road in Mitchell that it was quiet for a great night's sleep.

This is not a new motel, but it was a clean place, had friendly and helpful staff, we were in a quiet room. Free breakfast was nothing to get excited about. Cereal, bagels, donuts and yogurt, nothing hot. Outdoor entrance to our room, had to go outside to get to the hot tub. Nothing fancy, but had everything we needed and overall worked well for our family.

Took a mini vacation and stayed here. It was great. Nice and quiet. People were super friendly and it felt like home. Room was clean maybe not as modern or up to date as some hotels so maybe not for everyone but we loved it. Thank you.

We were on an extended drive and spent 1 night as we were heading east and then 2 nights as we headed back west. The 2 night stay was due to road closure / blizzard conditions. The folks running this place and super helpful and friendly and we were grateful for this place where we could hunker down with our dog and weather the storm.

Our second stay here. Friendly staff, good beds, dog friendly. Great for pheasant hunters since you can back right up to room door. Lots of restaurants nearby. Right next to freeway. Very convenient. Good prices.
