The exterior is your typical motel, but the real surprise is in the interior. The rooms are completely updated, roomy, and very clean. The mattress was very comfortable and their were pillows ranging from soft to firm. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We stayed for a conference and plan to use the Thunderbird Lodge in the future when...

Always love coming here when I'm in town for business. It's my "go-to" hotel. Close to the highway and walking distance to shops. Rooms are clean, here and there they can have a smoke smell but not all the time. Definitely recommend it!

Great prices, for clean rooms! Close walking distance for meals and gas station. We stayed 4 nights. The rooms were clean and quaint. A Mexican restaurant right next door for dinner and heavenly donuts close too for breakfast and coffee.

Our one night stay found this property to employ friendly staff, clean room, fast WIFI and excellent value. The breakfast offered minimal choices, toast, apple, banana, cold cereal & yogurt. The breakfast counter was cramped allowing only one guest at a time. Would suggest the coffee placed in another area. Would stay again.

Friend and I was looking for a decent place to stay. I chose the thunderbird lodge do to the good reviews. I found this place to be clean, fairly comfortable, and has been updated. Room has a microwave, mini fridge, ice bucket, desk and chair, flat screen TV, small coffee maker with those nasty little packets and of course beds....

Stopped while traveling through at the Thunderbird. Staff was very friendly, rooms were a bit dated but clean and beds were comfortable. For our road trip one night stay it was perfect, great value and they even offer a free breakfast. Was perfect for our needs.

When the key card to our room didn't work, staff assisted us right away and gave us a comparable room immediately (great customer service!). Amenities: Refrigerator, microwave, coffee machine, WiFi, hair dryer and iron. Beds were comfortable and the room/bathroom were very clean. The complimentary breakfast was good as well (bagels & bread with a toaster, jellies, coffee, tea, cereal,...

The room was very cold (I was there in January)and they did not supply extra blankets in the room. Also, the garbage truck came at 5:17 am to empty the dumpsters. It sounded like they drove into the building and the noise went on for a good 5 minutes. You would have had to have been in a coma to...

Very good value for a medium priced hotel. Everything worked well; the television, the microwave, refrigerator, & the shower. The furnishings were new and nice! The only reason I wouldn't give this a five is because of the breakfast. That was really mediocre, but with the addition of some hard-boiled eggs, a toaster, peanut butter and jelly it would've been...

Room was cold, heater was placed awkwardly high so I couldn't read the knobs. My wife is only 5'1 and could only barely reach. Heater was pretty loud but there were minimal blankets (2 sheets with a thin fleece blanket between) & no extra blankets in the room. No fan in the bathroom and the window opened directly onto the...
