I also booked this place based on Trip Advisor reviews and price. My family arrived at check in, got our room, relaxed a few minutes and got ready to go to the pool. This was very important in our mini family vacation to have a place with a pool. The kids were so excited. Until we got to the pool and seen poop in the bottom of it! Disgusting!! We went back to our room, packed everything back up into the car and check out. The desk clerk gave us no hassel, just told him the pool was very unacceptable and he refunded my money and we moved on.
Later in the weekend I was looking for hotels to stay at for another night, I see the Thunderbird Inn listed, one room left for $500! I don't know how rates can fluxuate so much for one place, but I wouldn't spend a dime here!
