Thunderbird Lodge
Ranked #7 of 37 Hotels in Redding
Reviewed February 1, 2014

Very centrally located, within easy walking distance. As opposed to other reviews we found the bed very comfortable, the room temperature even (didn't even turn on heater at night). Fridge, microwave good. In-room coffee pot itty-bitty but then you can get 2nd cup at continental breakfast; sweet rolls, coffee, juice, fruits. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Yes, we would stay there again. FYI they have temp control on shower so if you like your hot-hot forget it. It's a safety thing.

Room Tip: As wife is light sleeper we did ask for a room quiet as possible. Given this Lodge sits on a block...

The price is low. The room is clean. The bed is comfortable. The internet works. The room is small, the breakfast is meager, there isn't the slightest hing of luxury to be found. If what you are looking for is a cheap place to crash for the night in Redding, you've found your place. If you want any kind of luxury like large towels or comfy chairs or a nice breakfast, keep looking because they do not pretend to offer those things. And at these prices they probably can't afford to.

We stayed there for the first time over a month ago...we had to go back & stay in Redding & our first choice was Thunderbird. Very quaint & clean. The owner's are nothing less than very pleasant. There is a microwave, frige, coffee pot & continental breakfast. We also recommended it to someone else in our party & he stayed there. They are in our phone while they are the owners. It's simple, affordable & clean.

Room Tip: A lot of great places within a block to dine. We found a nice lil bar/sandwich place across the St...

Definitely retro-looking on the outside, but surprisingly good on the inside. The folks who run it are super friendly, and the breakfast was perfectly adequate. The room was spacious enough, didn't smell like smoke and was clean. The only complaint I have is the pokey internet. I could also hear the dryer running in the laundry room and a woman talking next door - but neither lasted very long. It was inexpensive and close to some cool stuff downtown - well worth the bit of drive off of I-5.

Room Tip: Upstairs was best (no tromping above us), and we were far off of the road, but I think that added to...

We only needed a place to stay one night and the Thunderbird fit the bill perfectly. The front office people were very polite both at check in and check out. Our room was clean and exactly all we needed. We will stay here again for sure and would recommend any of our friends to do the same :)

The clerk (maybe owner too) is very nice! The hotel didn't offer a lot of amenities, the thing that this place has going for it is the affordability. The rooms are pretty dated but an earnest attempt has been made to update them. We liked the location for the fact that we could walk to dinner but the sound of sirens kept me awake, not to mention the rock solid spring mattress.

Our room was clean, the desk staff very nice, and the bed one of the most comfortable I have slept in in awhile. Our room had a thermostat that was responsive to our needs, a refrigerator, a microwave and a great shower. There was an ice machine close by. There was a continental breakfast. The walls are pretty thin, so we could hear discussions in an adjoining room, and the coffee pot extremely small with lousy coffee. Remodeling is going on here, so the owners are working on improvements. We definitely got a good deal for what we needed and paid for. I would stay here again.
