“It could be a good place, it just wasn't.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

They accept pets. That was the only good part. I have stayed in many austere, budget minded places before but this place was just plain dirty and left us with bug bites all over us. Bleach and a vacuum would do wonders. My dogs have never lived so nasty. Even though I get to come back to Show Low and testify in the domestic abuse case that happened in the room next door, I won't stay at the thunderbird. The police noticed that we weren't the typical residents if this motel. The 911 operator didn't understand that we didn't live here. The Coffee Mania was the only point of sanity. It was clean and the coffee is good.

I recently stayed here for two weeks & enjoyed each day. The managers Summer & Anthony are super sweet always making sure you are comfortable & right their for your every need. Plus they are very pet friendly who could ask for any thing more. Thank you both for making my stay so nice. See you next year.

For the budget minded traveler, this motel is adequate and inexpensive. The room was very comfortable, even had a fridge and microwave, with the one outstanding drawback being a very small and outdated bathroom. I got the feeling that the current owners are remodeling the units, and just haven't gotten around yet to updating the bathrooms, because I noticed many updated features, such as the AC/heating and the room decor. The bed was very comfortable and front desk staff was friendly and efficient, and everything seemed very clean. This is certainly a no frills motel, as ice was available upon request only, and coffee is available for a price at the Coffee Mania shop on site. The woman running the coffee shop was rather surly, but I don't think she is directly associated with the motel. There are also several eating/drinking establishments very close to the motel, and the location is very near a small park with an interesting centerpiece featuring the two cowboys whose card game gave name to the town. Despite my room being close to the main road through town, it was not noisy as the traffic subsided quite a bit after dark.
