“We Really Liked This Budget Inn”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Rooms are being remodeled with furnishings that are attractive and efficient. Room size is good. Microwave, mini-fridge, are included along with cable TV & 2 HBO stations. Rooms are clean. Staff is friendly & helpful. Menus of nearby restaurants are available in lobby. We enjoyed food at informal Taqueria Los Gordo & breakfast at Corbett's Restaurant--both within easy walking distance. If we take this same trip again in two years,we will definitely stay here.

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so request first floor to the back if carrying luggage upstairs is a problem.

Good place to stop if you need to spend a night near Redding. Rooms were clean and the grounds well kept. Has a very cool sign. Free breakfast nothing to write home about. Beds were comfy but the pillows not so much. Still, it's hard to be let down given the price tag.

Our family of 3 needed a dog friendly hotel, with a pool to jump in after a long drive, that also served breakfast and was within a short drive to Lake Shasta for our next night of camping. The Thunderbird had all of this and was pretty cheap. The breakfast is very basic but the hotel is within walking distance of several restaurants. Try Kobe's for someth.ing nicer since you saved a bundle by staying here.

Due to a fire north of Redding, I5 was closed and we were forced to spend the night in Redding. Based on Trip Advisor's info we decided to take a chance. We were pleasantly surprised - clean & updated room, continental b-fast, and reasonably priced. The A/C was a little noisy but with the triple digit heat it was a small price to pay. If ever need be we'd visit again!

I chose the Thunderbird Lodge based on previous reviews. It was centrally located and easy to find. Our room was on the 2nd floor and quite warm when we arrived. We turned on the A/C wall unit and by the time we returned from dinner, it was cooler. We left it on all night which helped to camoflage the outside noise - traffic, trains, helicopter (at the nearby hospital), but the A/C unit itself had an internal rattle which was evident whenever the compressor wasn't running. Otherwise, the king bed was comfortable, the shower adequate, and the staff friendly. This is an older motel, so nothing fancy, but the price was good and it was clean. We chose to eat dinner at Brink's BBQ on Eureka, which was a short drive away. Excellent food . . . we returned for breakfast the next morning and again for dinner on our return trip through the area.

We stayed at Thunderbird Lodge for one night. The room was clean and comfortable. The office staff were very friendly. We even took time to enjoy their swimming pool. I would recommend this lodge since the price is right for what you get.

The best part of this motel was the most awesome sign they have, but there is nothing wrong with the motel itself. Rooms were good, breakfast was basic motel breakfast and the place was clean. I slept like a log and have nothing bad to say about this place.
